I used the stock checker and found a store nearby with them in stock.
Showed up and asked the lone employee if he could check the price on two I saw on top of the shelves and he acted like he pressed a few buttons and told me they are still $79.99. I said OK, and read the thread again to check other people's luck. He looked shocked as if he forgot to pull them.
I asked him again if he could actually scan it and he said it rang up "$26.99," and he said he can't sell it to me new. I asked if he could just cut the seals on the box and sell it to me used then. He said NO. That he has to take all the contents out, tear the guides up and just sell the game. He gave me the whole spiel as if a CAG has been there before for guides. I said the game should have a NOT FOR RESALE upc on it and you aren't allowed to sell it, he then said he would sell it as used.
He proceeded to open it in front of me and remove the contents and open the game up, fucking tard.
Then he tells me the DM is in the next county over and will probably come here next to pull these and that he has to do the pulls himself that the DM knows how many he has in stock.
I said, or you just take them home and put them on eBay. He said he could lose his job for that, I told him this is bullshit and left. There's a seller in my area on eBay that constantly has just GameStop items, I guess he's the DM.
A lot of you guys are going to be wasting your time on this. It's extremely shitty to have something on a shelf, it ring up $26.99 and not sell it.
The only luck you guys are going to have on this is a noob or if you're able to complete the purchase online and pick it up in store, which is unlikely since they've modified their website.THIS IS WHY I DON'T SHOP AT GAMESTOP GAMESTOP
