I purchased Borderlands GOTY edition via Gamestop online. My shipment order stated that my Xbox 360 version shipped with 2 discs. So, it looks like Gamestop is selling the disc DLC version of the game. I also ordered it for PS3, will see if it comes on the disc or on a voucher. Both are out for delivery today!

Went to turn in Borderlands and see if they are doing the extra 50% credit next week.

Didn't confirm it, just said there were stipulations and that it was "up to 50%" for multiple trade in's (1-10%,2-20%,etc).

Held off, might trade it in with Amazon, then use the credit when they price match Gamestop.

Anyone know if Fallout NV has ever been fixed on disc? If it's only been patched online I'm out of luck.

Sure wish Amazon would match on Fallout 3 GOTY... I'd love to skip out on the sales tax.


Technically you need to be reporting online purchases and pay the sales tax as part of any tax filing you may be required to do. Protip...

I ordered 3 games online and then noticed Borderlands was also on sale. It says you can alter an order before it ships, but I couldn't add it to my order, so I placed an additional order of the same 3 games and added Borderlands to the new order.

Went to cancel the original order of 3 games and uh-oh, "Server Problems" you cannot cancel your order. Please call. So I called, and they were closed 2 hours before the time stated on the website (yes, taking into account time zones).

So I emailed them to cancel the original order, but get an email back that it cannot be cancelled because it's been boxed and it's about to ship- that was 3 days ago and the order is still listed as "open" when I check on it.

It's not that big of a deal, I'll just return the original order to a local store and lose nothing but my time, but it's shady that the website works perfectly fine to place orders, then 10 seconds later you can't cancel something online because of "server problems" (that apparently don't effect ordering) and the customer service line won't let you cancel an order.

I blame myself for dealing with such a shitty company. If a single "new" game comes gutted, I'm returning everything. But knowing Gamestop, they'll want to display the cases on the warehouse wall and keep the discs in the shipping office.

Went to one GS and the Borderlands 360 GOTY was on the normal shelf at 39.99....took a shot at a different GS and found one in the sale bin at $20 :D


it would have rung up 19.99, the 39.99 you saw.

Just got my Borderlands from GameStop.com, It's the 2 Disc version and even has the Duke Nukem Beta. Can't complain, only took 3 days to get here with free shipping, granted they don't deliver on Sundays :bouncy:

Thank you OP. I don't check this site often, but I'm glad I did last week. Pick up PS3 Borderlands GOTY & Fallout 3 GOTY on their website.

For anyone still wondering:

Borderlands GOTY -- Arrived in new I think (shrink-wrap has the x shape). DLC is included on the disc, which said "Game And Add-On Contect Disc.

Fallout 3 GOTY -- Not sure if it's gutted . It came with the Slipcover in great condition. The tape had already been cut at the bottom. The shrink-wrap on the case is definitely resealed (not sure if that's originally from factory). It still has that new smell when I open it, and no scratches or fingerprints on the disc.

I'm very happy with purchase (even though I hate gamestop and their practice).

They will probably send you just the game but you can go trade it in to a store proper which is what I always do.

It's random. I ordered 3 PS2 games back in December, 2 were complete (came with art/case/manual), someone had written in one of the manuals.. and the 3rd game had just the cover art + case, but the art insert had too much damage to it, half of it was rubbed off somehow.

You can always return the games to a local store if you want, but don't get your hopes up.

It varies.
Expect to get just the disc and if it comes with the case and manual be happy.

I’m glad to see that others do the “buy from many stores then return and rebuy to get the B2G1Free” method of getting the games you want for the correct price. I’ve done this a few times, and I’ve never had an issue.

I picked up Enslaved (used, PS3) for $11.69+tax, but now with the B2G1Free coming up, I’m trying to figure out what I want to do. I’d also really like to get Majin (used, PS3), but the GS I went to yesterday didn’t have it, and they claimed that the used version was $26.99, which I find very hard to believe (I’ll assume it’s $12.99). I don’t have another $12.99 game to match with those two, but there are a few $17.99 games I kinda want (probably PoP:TFS). But with the B2G1Free sale a few weeks away, I’ll miss my 7 day return window if I try to hold onto Enslaved, and I’d feel bad about stringing Enslaved along for over two weeks (return the one I have now after 7 days, immediately buy it again, return it again, buy it again, etc). I could take a chance that I’d be able to find Enslaved again, return my copy now, then wait until the B2G1Free sale and get Enslaved, Majin, and PoP (assuming they’ll all be in stock) all for $27.88. That, or just keep my Enslaved and look to pick up Majin for another $11.69. Two games for $23.38, or take a risk and attempt to get a third game for only $4.50 more. What do you think?

(Yes, I know I’m insane for fretting over this when all these games are so damn cheap anyway, but I’m kinda nuts like that.)

For those who bought Fallout 3 GOTY for PS3 new: Was your game case wrapped in thick plastic, and your cardboard sleeve outside it (i.e., not wrapped)? Mine's also taped at the bottom. Just wondering if this was the norm or not. Thanks.

They do most of the time, both online and in-store games (annoying as hell if you ask me). I think we all have had a discussion at some point with a GS employee of what a 'New' game actually is (hint: a gutted copy isn't new)

So if having the game in the original shrink wrap is important to you, keep away from GS

just got borderlands goty and ninja gaiden sigma 2 in the mail, both brand new and appears to be in its original shrink wrap. The quality of both games seems to be brand new so I dont think it was resealed

thanks OP. I also got another copy of borderlands for my buddy but the in store one was gutted

I believe it depends on where you live. I never received a gutted copy as new from all of the gamestops i been through in my area

My order of borderlands goty just shipped. I ordered the PS3 version so hopefully I get the one with the dlc on the disc. I have been hearing people getting the 360 version with it on the disc but I have not heard very much about the PS3 version. I will report back when I receive my copy.

I got mine today in the mail, it's included on the disc, didn't have any voucher except for the duke nukem demo. Wish you luck with your copy.

Btw, anyone know if Fallout 3 GOTY is a gutted copy or a new one. This is couple of posts back #1642. I'm just curious.

Thanks.

you'll get the one with the content on the disc. Everyone else who bought it online (including myself) got that version so I dont see why you shouldnt

I don't know if they're just trying not to lose sales for the current sale, but my Gamestop said there will be no B2G1 promotion for the current sale.
