GameStop Changes Controversial Circle of Life Program

According to anonymous sources, GameStop is changing its "Circle of Life Program" that reportedly punished employees that didn't have enough used game sales.

Starting next week, according to managers who spoke with Kotaku tonight, GameStop will no longer monitor individual employees’ Circle of Life scores. Each GameStop store will now simply have a single COL number, for their entire store, which will help reduce pressure on individual employees to hit their quotas. This will—at least in theory—prevent employees from being punished for selling new games, as they had been in the past.
