I could see it being hard to distinguish between legitimate gift purchases, and customers that intend on re-selling the title. Determining intent is extremely difficult to determine, and I could see this possibly causing more problems than it solves. I can also say we would not want to restrict legitimate gift purchases. With that said, I would like to hear if anyone else would want to see us put this policy in place.

There are tons of websites dedicated to posting bestbuy deals like cag and slickdeals and in each thread you can cleary see there are people looking to resale games for profit not  to give as gifts.

@Dahak, I'm sure that's true. The problem is that if this idea was implemented we would be eliminating the option for customer's to legitimately purchase gifts of a specific title, while at the same time purchasing a copy for themselves. It is our policy to deny any sale if we believe that specific sale is intended for re-sale, but I will admit it this is hard to guard against.
