Got an email saying my 2 copies are 'Backordered and are expected to ship within the next 1-2 weeks.'

If all goes well, I'll be happy.

I havent received a email yet but looking at my order it also says back ordered, but not for how long.

That is not an example of hypocrisy.


Explain.

Bashing a company and then using their services for personal gain is not being a hypocrite. For example if I say "GS has terrible customer service!", and then I turn around and abuse their return policy (which is what he was bragging about doing), that would not make me a hypocrite. I see what you are saying, the guy you were talking to essentially said that GS sucks and then is giving them his business. But he is taking advantage of them because he dislikes them. Was Robin Hood a hypocrite?

He would be a hypocrite is he said that people who shop at GS/Walmart are supporting evil businesses, and then he went and shopped there himself. A lot of people say that Walmart sucks, and then abuse their return policy. That does not make them hypocrites.

To sum it up...

You can't say GameStop is the scum of the world and then step a foot inside the door to buy a game. Yes, he will return the game and get his money back.

In reality, this guy doesn't really think that GameStop is bad otherwise he wouldn't go inside a store. If GameStop didn't exist he wouldn't be able to get his games that he illegally copies and then return them for free. He could use GameFly but he would have to pay a monthly fee, therefore he needs GameStop and is a hypocrite.

So to sum up the summing up...

In reality, Robin Hood doesn't really think the Sheriff of Nottingham is bad, otherwise he wouldn't go to Nottingham to steal gold from him.


Yup.

That's a good idea about the DLC. I might just have to do this myself because I always wanted to play the extra content.

This literally made me LOL. Thanks for rephrasing it in a way I couldn't, since he obviously didn't get the point in my post from earlier. He probably won't get yours either, but it brought me some LOLZ. :lol:

Gamestop is the scum of the world... More of a reason TO exploit their policies. I personally also have a hacked wii with a 1TB hard drive. I just buy used games, rip the disc to my hard drive and return it for another game or for my money back... rinse and repeat. It hassles the company and I get free games.


too bad there is only about under 30 gbs of wii games actually worth playing

Eggxactly.

Essentially the original post was saying that Gamestop is being an asshole and therefore that's justification for them to be punished. Personal gain from that punishment or not doesn't change the fact that Gamestop sucks monkeyballz and had it comin' to them according to the guy.

It's just sweeter punishment that the guy is profiting from it. Does that make his actions hypocritical? Nope. In fact, it's a perpetuation/manifestation of his motives. It's like a killer that hates a person goes out to kill the person and relishes in killing said person.

I'm not supporting his actions or anything, just in the camp of not thinking it's hypocritical.

This analogy is gay. Are you 16? All the people that bitch and complain about GameStop and Wal-Mart think the world owes them something. Each company will run their business as they see fit. Don't like it? Don't buy at their store and STFU.

GameStop is a business not some fukin literature story. What you and the other poster fail to understand is that you can't bite the hand that feeds (hopefully this literature related comment gets to both of you). The hand is GameStop by providing all the free games that are being copied and the one being fed is the person copying the games. That's like bitching about your parents even though they are giving you food and shelter.

Can't argue with nerds that love Robin Hood.
