DAMNN!!!! I sent out yesterday............

Trade-In Placed:
November 13, 2011

  • Trade-In ID: TRN-9694314-5286870
  • Return Option: Do not return items
  • Total Amount Expected: $197.65
  • 23 Items Submitted

WTH! should i cancel;;?

Nope, by the time you got them shipped back it would be far too late and Amazon only allows you to send two games per system per three months even if you cancel. If you exceed that limit by canceling, then you're only screwing yourself further.

Just received Radiant Historia from the $19.99 deal a few days ago - this is the vanilla version w/o the soundtrack cd. While I originally hoped to receive the soundtrack version, Amazon sent this in a bubble mailing envelope, so it would've been completely destroyed. $20 shipped for this game still sounds good, no matter which version it is ;)


Radiant Historia CD version was sold out shortly after release and was OOS til the second printing without CD...?

Take pictures of anything you send. Disc, Manual, Case. I have had 1/3 of my trade ins rejected even though they were sent if excellent condition. They swap discs, and will stomp on the case to break it. It is kind of playing a chance game.



I have personally never had a problem trading games into Amazon. I have traded in over 60 games to Amazon across several dozen trades and I have only had 1 trade-in denied (which was my faulty...didn't realize I had traded in the Canadian version of the game).

They rejected my PS2 because I didn't realize it needed a stock controller and they took 2 six axis controllers after downgrading their quality because they didn't have the USB cable. Other than that, mine have been great trades.

I agree. It'll take well past your locked-in date starting tomorrow for you to get your items back.

That's what I figured; my post was geared toward the other CAG who asked which version Amazon was shipping out. While it would be nice to have the cd version, I probably wouldn't end up listening to it anyway - I'm glad I was able to find the game in any form for $20 ;)

The 2 titles that were out of stock on Amazon for a long time, Dark Souls and MW3 are still full price. Makes you wonder if they were hiding the extra copies in the warehouse until this sale showed up lol

Idk about that, I bought it while on a trip to Louisiana a few months ago at a GS for $30 and to my surprise it had the CD.

The Duke Nukem Balls of Steel edition is still in stock for PC for $19.99. I picked that up and Demigod collectors for under $30 with free shipping. Pretty good deal IMO as I primarily game on the PC.

The MW3 Hardened Edition should be able to be sold on eBay after two weeks for a decent profit. After November 30 it will be the only way to get "Founder Status".

Did Activision say you'd get founder status no matter WHEN you redeemed a hardened code?

Argh I'm tempted that's for sure, but elite is such a cluster Fuck right now. *sigh*

From what I understand; all Hardened editions give you "Founder" status plus all the other benefits.

This is from Activision's official website: "If you have a MW3 Hardened Edition you can use the code included on the Founder card to add Founder benefits to your Premium account on the site after 11/30/11" http://www.callofduty.com/founder

My DS was damaged AND was not delivered release day. I haven't opened it , so I am emailing them now for a new one in better condition. (I plan on keeping it sealed, so I have a matching set of Demon/Dark CEs.

I don't understand how Amazon still have them in stock?!?!? I don't want to place an order and just to be screwed with the regular edition (Dark Soul, not MW3 HE).

Guess I won't buy Call of Duty's HE. I should be happy with BF3 and Skyrim. Maybe rent Modern Warfare 3 next year or something.

Went for Demigod and Duke Nukem on PC, held off on Killzone because I think it will drop lower, and 30 is my sweet spot for a CE like that.

mine arrived the day after release and it was the regular edition! I sent several emails, and they assured me they'd send another. the last one just refunded my order without giving a reason. then I sold game to a friend. I had to settle for meh versions from GS

Finally bit on Duke Nukem BoS for PC. Feel sorry for those who dropped the C-note at launch, but patience is rewarding. Got the Halo 3 and Reach Legendary editions for $60 by just chilling.

I would think Amazon allocated some stock months ago for this promotion. Items like Dark Souls CE, Witcher 2, Hardened probably did not have a reprint, once they are gone, would bet that's it.

Thanks for responding! While it's too bad I won't be getting the CD it's still a great deal for the game itself. I fully admit to buying the first-fun versions of special edition games I like just to get the CD and then never listen to the CD :D I figure I'll find it somehow on eBay at some point but the game itself is far, far more important to me.

Hope you enjoy the game and thanks again for answering my question :)

I didn't want to think that Amazon would pull shit like this, but they're a shadow of their former self this year so who knows. I definitely can't understand how they'd have Dark Souls back in stock after the fiasco last month.

Maybe those are the fucked up copies that they sent back to Namco? It's easy for Namco to order another batch of the tin case and re-package them again.

Btw, how did Amazon suddenly have pallets of MW3 Hardened in stock? Did Activision reprint another batch to capitalize on the bundle that was in high demand and sold out before release.

They may be from canceled pre orders. One of the COD HE may have been mine. I canceled on the Sunday before launch because they did not office any $20 off next regular purchase promo.

They definitely pulled copies of the KZ3 Helghast edition the other day for this sale (same price as it was then). THey had over 999 for sure and all of a sudden they're all sold out, but a few days later and here they are again.

I'm positive they held back some other CE's for this sale and other upcoming BF deals
