Any idea if most Gamestops will open early tomorrow or normal time? I didn't realize that this started tonight or else I would have gone already. I still have yet to see any mention of this sale including on the Dec 24th ad. Very odd.


Also will they close earlier than normal too?
I want to partake in this deal to help build my newly acquired PS3's collection. (for everything I really want that I can't find at for cheap elsewhere, including BBV.)

I'll probably go hunting amongs 2 GS stores tomorrow for some Gamecube & Wii games. All of the decent games for filler online are unavailable such as Viewtiful Joe 1 & 2.

wow no ds cases?

gamestop is offically the scummiest company in the world.


I can understand not having cases for GBA games...that's one thing...but DS cases? C'mon!

I know it's to save room in the store, but I just cringe @ the thought of someone throwing out the case & manual for those harder to find & RPG ds games.

Their website does say open until 7PM. Maybe I should be assuming opening normal time since it doesn't say anything about opening early.

Their store policy is 7 days for returns, 30 days exchange for same title. I don't know if it is different for website purchases, but I'm sure they have their return policy on their website somewhere.

I like b2g1 AND I have a decent amount of credit on my powerup card but they never have the games in stock that I want. I've yet to see a uncharted 2 goty, sly collection, or motorstorm pr used.

What you guys need to do is do the survey and give them all bad scores and say its because of the no case policy.


I agree with this. Retailers put a lot of value in those surveys. Much more so than people complaining on message boards.

Every time I traded in games they would say "don't forget to fill out this survey for a chance to win blah blah blah." I would always fill it out and write "as long as you put price stickers on cover art, I will not buy used games." They don't do it any more. I'm not saying it's solely because of me, but I think if no one complained directly to them, corporate would figure nobody minds. And the more CAGs who complain the better. Much better than pissing in the wind here.

Course, I haven't been able to convince them to stop gutting new games. :D Baby steps.

So far only one store by me ditched all the cases for DS games. That and the ditching of cases for console games <$5 is another horrible trend that I hope stops.

I loved gamestop earlier this year. They were competeing with sales and direct deals and their trade in values with their bonuses and coupons neted you some deals worth going there over.

Now there sales are all prices controlled by the publisher which are usually worse then other b @ m retail stores AND they do them late and usually last behind the rotation. They stopped doing email coupons altogether for their **** power up rewards card which gives you a whoping 2.5 cashback on money I dont spend there anymore because the deals SUCK.

Also their trade in values are worse then I have ever seen. Even with the recent 60% bonus they had, the trade invalues didn't even reach the old 30% of the value of their used sale they used to give you. They want to give nothing for everything so I give them nothing.

I hate the new direction they are going, and it's a shame because I used to shop there quite alot.

Most of the time they do lol. But you can go switch them out for the case and manual at a local store.

Yeah all my stores tossed out the cases too. I think I'm up in Jan or Feb, so I won't be renewing.

I don't see why they would toss them out, while keeping every other case. It's not like DS cases take more room than others.

I'm seriously not going to be buying from them much longer. I'll pick up a new game when it drops to the bottom barrel but all USED, GS sucks.

Ordering from the Website is seriously just asking for disc only games. Going to the stores won't help because they won't have it.

Gamefly and GoHastings will see more of my dollars.



Is the sale IN-Store too? Didn't see it...

Which they did with me in regards to Resident Evil 5. I gave him the Resident Evil 5 box art and he gives me the Gold Edition box art but tells me that the DLC isn't included. I was like whatever considering I will be purchasing the DLC on the XBL marketplace anyway.

Looks like everyone is thinking you're talking about a online order. To me it sounds like you'll be buying in store. If this is the case, then the case you bring up to the register is the one you keep. Check the case to see if the manual is inside of it, you can also ask them to let you see the disk they'll be giving you.

For the Gamestops here, if they already have a lot of copies of the game you bring up they give you a case that already has the disc in it (they store all the discs in a case already so it's faster than looking for a case and putting the disc in the one you bring up I guess..) I always have to watch the cashier in case that happens because it can be a hit or miss on whether the copy they bring up is a greatest hits / missing manual. :cold:

Yup, this happened to me last night. I've been looking for the Platinum Hits edition of Mass Effect, since it comes w/ a bonus disc containing the Bring Down the Sky DLC. I found the PH case at Gamestop, and brought it up to the cashier. One guy goes behind the counter and brings out a regular non-PH edition of Mass Effect and is about to ring it up.

I said "Um, I specifically want the Platinum Hits version since it comes w/ 2 discs."

The cashier says "Oh, I don't think Mass Effect 1 comes with a 2nd disc, only Mass Effect 2 does, but I'll go look."

Sure enough they find the PH version, but it's in a black case as opposed to the platinum grey case I found on the shelf. Then I needed to say "Could I get THIS case from the shelf instead?"

Yeah you're right. Thats happend to me a few times also.

It's happened to me too at my 'good' Gamestop. I brought up a case from the original Kane & Lynch last week when I used my B2G1 coupon from my PUR account. It had no manual(which sucks), but the artwork was at least in decent shape.

So when they went to ring me out and I was checking the discs I noticed they swapped it out for a copy that has water damage on the coverart.:bomb:

I then had to point out the case that I'd brought up to the counter with the better condition coverart and say I wanted that.

You should see the hassle I get when I tell them I wanna check out the condition of the game discs BEFORE they ring me up though. That's even more of a hassle.:cry:
