Does anyone know how Gamestop handles games that are backordered? I ordered three games the other night - all three were listed as in-stock when I added them to my cart, and I checked out a few minutes after adding them. I got an e-mail today stating that only one game had shipped, so I checked my order status, only to find that two of the games were backordered. One of the games, God of War : Chains of Olympus, I could see selling out while I was ordering, but the other game was Champions : Return To Arms, a 6-year old PS2 game that still sells for $20. I can't see there being a mad rush to get that one, and I'm concerned that they won't get it back in stock.

Last time I checked, Champions: Return To Arms was a sought after game with a decent resell value to it. So that's likely why it disappeared so quickly.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

It took me a year to get 2 $50 gift cards though so it's gonna take a while. Only protip I can give you is to check everything it asks you (like what consoles you own and what types of beverages you drink) that way you have more chances of getting into surveys. Some surveys will give you 20 points if you qualify (the biggest one I've done gave me 80 points) and if you do not qualify for the survey you'll get 2-3 points.

Also you have a chance of getting into 'prototype' products. Like I got into this new soda survey and they sent me a bottle of soda to try it out ( I won't disclose what brand though sorry :) ) and I just got into this survey and they're going to send me some gel body wash lol, but hey: If it's free I'll take it :lol:

Either way it's free and it works.


Just be patient and make sure to check your e-mails daily.





i keep thinking mine will be expired so i ended up redeeming $25 when i could've been more patient and get the $50 :bomb:


also, they said my membership will expire december 2010, and im still getting surveys in my email.

Just got my 2 Deadliest Catch and 1 EA MMA from the first day of the sale when everything was stacking. All 3 were in perfect shape, cases, manuals and games looked like new. They don't seem to be resurfaces, either...

Ok so my order shipped a while ago, and i've been tracking it with the tracking number gamestop emailed me. But when I go to the website, it still says "pending" for all 3 games, and allows me to cancel the order. It's already shipped. I don't want to be charged twice, or have the games shipped to me twice. Should I cancel the order online?

They'll ship out what they have in stock, then the other games as they replenish


What's odd is that both games are still listed as in-stock and can still be ordered. You'd think they'd have updated them by now. I'm really concerned about getting Champions - there's no way to know how long it's been out of stock or how many people ordered it ahead of when I did :|

Wow I musted been very lucky till now.. first time I have ever got current gen games without art/manuals.

DarkStar One (360) - No case or Manual
DarkStar One (360) - case and manual fair condition - rip in case plastic
Enslaved (360) - Excellent condition

Sadly the DarkStars were gifts so i'm gonna have to head to GS and at the very least find one with a case/manual.

My orders arrived today:

:ps2: Yakuza - complete
:ps2: Yakuza 2 - disc only
:ps3: Madden 10 - complete

:360: Assassins Creed Brotherhood - complete
:360: Fallout 3 GOTY - complete
:ps3: Yakuza 3 - missing manual

All the discs look pristine, but there don't seem to be any marks that indicate they were resurfaced.



I wish you luck, it's really hard to get a working copy of Yakuza 2 used from GameStop. Took me 3 copies to get one. Many others have had the same problem with the game. One of my copies was even broken in half in the middle. But the game's worth it, just keep on GameStop.



The disc is flawless looking and it played through all the movies up until you take control. Should I play it further to double check or is it good to go?

Hey guys, I am new here but I got in and used the Feb2g1 and CAG16 ($50.00 w/ tax and codes):

Skate 3, Dirt 1 and RDR ALL WITH NO MANUALS OR ORIGINAL CASES and skate 3 did not work.

I can say I would NEVER order again online from Gamestop, even with the promo. I could simply get these on Ebay and have the cases.

That's the risk you take buying from Gamestop online with used titles. For a while they had a program in place that all newer used titles would ship with case and manual, but I guess it proved to be too costly for them. Unless you have a Gamestop close by that you can return the incomplete titles to its almost not worth it.

Some combination of games work better than others, and could potentially be worth the hassle. If you can buy it on eBay for a similar price as what you can get from the promotion, I would say it's not worth it.

My combination was Resident Evil 5: Gold [PS3], Destroy All Humans: Path of the Furon, and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood (used as a subsitute to trade in for Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes for the PS3 with $.51 left over). I contemplated alternative selections, but I chose these given they were exactly the same price.

Got my first of two shipments in. 3x FNV 360. (all complete, about to check the discs now)

EDIT: one disc is fine, two have 3 dots on them in a triangle. Those are getting swapped out.

Good news is that one of them came with a classic pack token. Now to see if it has been used or not!

Could I go into a gamestop location and ask for them to give me the manual and actual case if I show them my receipt ?

As stated before all my three games came with no manuals and cheap cases

If I wanted to exchange a game, how would it work? Say I bought a $50 USED game online, on the receipt the price shows up as the B2G1 price. So if I wanna get a different $55 USED game at GS, I would have to pay the difference right? Would it be the $5 difference or the difference between the B2G1 price?

Im just guessing but I think it would be the difference of what you actually paid because it's not like they are going to "pay you" so to speak to buy from them.

When a surly GS employee suggested I would have to pay the $5 difference to exchange my Mass Effect 2 I informed them that I could just as easily buy the preowned copy in the store and then return my mail order copy..its not like they differentiate whether they have case/manual when they sell them. She promptly just swapped the game for me w/o ringing it through, grumbling the whole while.

I contemplated alternative selections, but I chose these given they were exactly the same price.


I tried to do the same thing, so while I don't regret "rolling the dice" in this instance (because if it worked, it would've been a great deal), I won't be doing it again after the condition of the items. I picked a couple of duplicate titles for trading purposes, and I also ordered about an hour into the sale. My breakdown:

Destroy all Humans Path Furon 360 - generic case (broken), no artwork, no manual
NCAA Basketball 2010 360 - generic case (broken), no artwork, no manual
Force Unleashed Sith 360 - heavily damaged case, no manual
Force Unleashed Sith 360 - damaged case, no manual
Lips Party Classics - generic case, no artwork, no manual
Lips Party Classics - complete in box with manual (the only one)

My real issue was the Force Unleashed boxes...they weren't just dented. I wouldn't dream of keeping one in my library or re-selling it -- one is so smashed I would have a hard time describing it as "poor", the other could barely be described as "acceptable" with the amount of dings, dents and scratches on it.

Seeing as most of these are all OOP I doubt my local GS is going to be of any help. At least the shipping was free so if I have to send them back, I will.
