THe manager wouldn't budge, said thats how they "all are".. wooudn't even give me a discount..
let me know...
Gamestop sometimes opens CE/LE/etc. types of games because they have a standard game case inside next to the extras. They use that standard game as a display copy. Then when you buy that CE/LE/whatever they put that game back inside with the extras and say it is "new". It's one of Gamestop's biggest and shadiest things they do, and is a serious annoyance especially for collectors.
My story: I put in the request for them to hold the copy for me WEDNESDAY night AFTER they closed, meaning they didn't read the request and actually put it on hold until THURSDAY morning. It said they would hold it for 2 DAYS. I went in this morning(FRIDAY) to pick it up and the manager was telling me about how my hold on it expired and they may have already sold it. It hadn't been two days in either business hours or standard hours
They did have it and I bought it though. Still sealed in plastic with only 2 very slight tears in the plastic. I'm going to open it anyway so I'm not worried.
