So, Blockbuster (B&M stores that is) found a way to screw me over from the grave.
You remember that big clerarance sale they had 1-2 years back, with controllers and headsets and points cards 90% off? Well, I got one of those PS3 Lava Glow controllers. I finally, just today, opened it up since I've been trading my Dual Shock 3's in to Gamestop ($42 each using the preorder promo which I'm using on a couple of Wii U games I'd buy from them anyway). I thought my 4 year-old could use the Lava Glow instead of the old DS3 that is starting to show its age.
Well, I realized the damn thing was not sealed and while the controller is in there and looks brand new, the receiver (dongle) is missing.
! So now I guess I have a pretty $3 paperweight (it has blue liquid in the handles and such) to give my 2 year-old to pretend to play along with her older brothers
. The waste of $3 doesn't bother me, but that means I probably can't trade a second DS3 in for $42 at GS since I don't have a replacement for it like I had thought.
In other news, that Blockbuster online thing (the 6 free months glitch) is working out decently enough. I have yet to get a game from it, but I've gotten a few DVDs that Netflix doesn't have so that has been nice. I haven't even bothered with the store exchange option and I don't even know if the last few remaining stores in my metro area are even open any more. I haven't been to a BBV in 6 months or more.
Sorry to anyone who read this thread thinking maybe there was some BBV game sale news. Please go back to ignoring Blockbuster!
