We have a winner ^^^

Just another CAG who only cares about himself and wants to make a quick buck. Two other people who really wanted the game are out of luck. I guess McDonalds doesn't pay much. You would take advantage of Wal-Mart, Best Buy and any other stores, not just GameStop.

Why do you care what other people do during sales? How does it affect you personally? I'm just curious, since every time there's a sale at GS and someone comments about how GS sucks or how they plan on reselling some of what they bought you seem to jump down their throat.

Fuck you man. I work in retail like many CAG's and my wife is a manager at McDonalds so thats offensive to me. There are multiple GS's in my area plus you can order games online or just go to Target. Think before you judge.

I don't care what you do with your money or time. I am just telling you what I think. I am not going to put a gun to your head to change your way of thinking. I am giving my opinion just like everyone else has one. It irritates me a little bit the comments about "screwing" GameStop or how the company "sucks" yet these people run to the store when there are deals like this one. In short, I hate hypocrites (but as I said, do as you please, this is just my opinion). I have been very clear that I used to work for GameStop and I know the other side of the coin where employees put up with shit from customers that try hard to "get their way".

Dude, I used to work in retail (GameStop) so don't come crying to me. Why is my McDonalds comment offensive to you? Suck it up, that's how society views fast food employees. If my comments bother you, then go get a degree (same for your spouse) and get a job that is worth bragging about. I did it while working at GameStop since I knew I didnt want to be in retail for the rest of my life.

Indeed. Rule number one in a B2G1 free sale is to purchase titles of the same price to get the best discount. Since Uncharted is the only 49.99 title, I'd have done the same thing.

I picked up Wipeout, Hot Shots, and Uncharted. Rayman was 5 bucks cheaper at Sams.


I grabbed the same. Going to check Target Wed or Thurs after I actually get my Vita to see what they still have in their B2G1 sale. Definitely need to find Rayman somewhere. I really wanted Modnation but I've heard so many bad things about it compared to the PS3 version so I may wait for that one to hit the bargain bin.

I had bought Uncharted GA on the 15th so I brought the game back to gamestop and asked if I could return it and rebuy it for the buy 2 get one free offer. He said no problem so I bought Modnation and got little deviants for free!

1. You think this deal is EXTREMELY unusual for GameStop? Well, imagine if Wal-Mart had this deal. That would go BEYOND EXTREMELY unusual since I have never seen a buy 2 get 1 free on games. EVER. Best Buy? Maybe 2 times a year. If anything, Best Buy is a copy cat of GameStop with their 1 year magazine deal if you pay $15 to get discounts on used games. Oh yeah, and now they have B2G1 on used games... where did they get that from? ;)

2. Best Buy doesn't have a good track record with employees making accurate statements either. I have dealt with BB employees who don't know about sales and in some cases it seems that I know more about their deals than these guys who work for the company. "Will you have X game on sale tomorrow"? "I don't know, it is a new game so I doubt it". Next day, game was on sale. Point is, this happens at other retailers but people love to give GameStop a hard time.

3. Duh, employees are not supposed to advertise sales in advance without proper authorization. Can you imagine if Sony told everyone 1 week in advance that the PS Vita will drop $50. Do you think people will hold off for 1 week to buy a Vita? :roll:

4. The OP had proof from one store. Do you think a store employee would jeopardize his job with some BS story about a B2G1?

5. "Glad the deal ended up being real"? So if the deal had been fake, then OP should be banned for life? "Got lucky for not being 1st title games only"? Lucky for what? What would you have done or demanded from OP if this only included 1st party titles?

Dude get the Fuck out of your high horse and stop being a Mr. know it all.




Oh, you're a real piece of work, you are. Ok, I'll play.


1) Uhhhh.....ok? Not quite sure why you're rambling on about Walmart, Best Buy, copycats, and all that other "hoo haa". The fact remains that this type of deal IS extremely unusual for Gamestop.

2) Again: uhhh.....ok? Talking about Best Buy's track record doesn't make my statement any less true. What exactly are you trying to prove here- that Walmart and Best Buy suck, too? I never said anything to the contrary in my post, so I'm not sure why you're trying to argue that with me. 0_o

3) We're not talking about 1 week here; we're talking about the next day. Either way, that's beside the point. The evidence was not pointing at the deal being true, so people had every right and reason to be skeptical.

4) He had proof that the employee believed such a deal would take place and matched a price because of it. It wouldn't be the first time an employee- wherever they may be working- made a mistake or believed something was going to happen when it didn't. It was definitive proof from the OP that HE got the deal, but it wasn't definitive proof that the deal actually existed. On top of that, in the end, the deal he did end up getting wasn't even the proper deal in the first place, so anything you say otherwise is a moot point.

5) What?!?! I never said or implied anything about how he should be banned or whatever had the deal been fake (where the **** are pulling all of this crazy **** from, anyway?). Furthermore, I merely said he was lucky to pick up three games he wanted rather than being limited to first party games, like the deal actually states. And he is.

Finally, I need to get off "my high horse"? I'm not the one being a completely condescending LUNATIC and freaking out on someone on a messageboard just because of....well, I don't even know why you're freaking out. Seriously, lay off the uppers, Capt. Internet. YIKES!!

Also Danzego, the 5 pages of "I sleep with a manager's next door neighbor so I know there's no sale" discourages people from posting about these types of sales.

I actually find part of the deal to be the early knowledge of the deal. How many times do people on this site say "oh, it's hit SD so the deal might as well be dead. There won't be anything left for me." Your analysis failed to put any value in having the knowledge that the sale was going to happen and fails to account for that fact that future posters may be dissuaded from posting. They might as well say "Well F all of those ungrateful CAGs.

Obviously I'm not trying to start a debate, this is not the forum for that and I certainly have no issue with you commenting on my statement, but I do think there was a significant value to the OP's posting that was not recognized by many posters.



Wait....WHAT?!?!? Did you seriously just say "Obviously I'm not trying to start a debate"?

LOL. Wow....I haven't seriously laughed in disbelief at something someone crapped out on the internet like what you just said in, like, EVER. If you're actually not trying to start a debate, you may want to completely revamp your psychotic approach toward others, because your approach now completely sucks.

What a jerk. Judging by other people's comments and opinions about you in this thread, I'm not the only one who sees it. Not by far.

I was excited about this offer until I realized I could only choose from those 5 games. I only want one of those games at all. Uncharted.

Ticks me off that they couldn't just match Targets offer of B2G1 for ALL Vita games. all my credit is at GS though.

Yea but Target is only offering certain titles. Target isn't stocking certain titles. Hell, Target isn't letting people get these deals until Wednesday.

I don't tend to shop Gamestop anymore but you'd better believe I SPECIFICALLY wanted Hot Shots Golf. Uncharted was a maybe. Wipeout was a possibly. Gamestop got me all three, yesterday, with no arguement. Between Target and Gamestop (and Sam's for Rayman) I've gotten the titles I cared about.

You can't beat the master.

1. By saying that GameStop's deal is Extremely unusual, you are implying that other stores such as Best Buy, Wal-Mart and so on have these type of deals quite frequently. Which is not the case. You are just trying to justify your dislike for GameStop. How come when I see Wal-Mart online deals, people like you don't say "Man, Wal-Mart has a deal, that is Extremely unusual!".

2. All I was saying is that there is no perfect retailer. People love to pile on GameStop's customer service yet the other major retailers are as worse. End of story.

3. How is the evidence not pointing at the deal being true? You are not thinking like a retail employee. Employees at stores wouldn't be pulling shit out of their ass on stuff like this if it wasn't going to happen. Employees get fired for making up shit like this if it is not true. OP got plenty of heat from people like you which deters others from posting future deals.

4. Read point 3.

5. I read your quote as implying that OP got lucky that his comments in his original post became true.

Dude, nobody is freaking out. I am just getting a kick out of all this. It is a nice little break on my day off.

You might be able to pull that off at Target. Just don't bring in the receipt when you do the return and see what happens.

To do it with the receipt, I believe both companies require you to return all three games.

I had tried once at GS with a B2G1 on used games and not sure if it was a smart employee or if the system warned him but he said since I used the B2G1 deal I had to return everything.

It was also an order I placed online so not sure if that makes a difference.

Also having trouble on picking a 3rd game. Wipeout and Uncharted for sure but having issues on picking either ModNation or Hot Shots for the third.

You are just trying to justify your dislike for GameStop. How come when I see Wal-Mart online deals, people like you don't say "Man, Wal-Mart has a deal, that is Extremely unusual!".


Actually anytime I see a real deal at WalMart I damn near pass out since their idea of 'clearance' usually is $.03 off MSRP. So when the recent WM mostly universal but still highly YMMV(dependent on if the price changes were done yet) clearance of older titles got posted on CAG, I just didn't believe it at first. But then when people were finding decent games, I got intrigued enough to check 2-3 of my local ones. As expected, I found the AC/DC Rock Band track pack in numbers I had only ever seen in Gamestop on their used shelves.

2. All I was saying is that there is no perfect retailer. People love to pile on GameStop's customer service yet the other major retailers are as worse. End of story.

Best Buy has been decent(to me anyway)as of late with their customer service. I've done tons of price matching, heaps of game trades and I have a feeling I may even score some penny guides when/if they finally drop some again with the luck I've had there recently.

Don't get me wrong. I know they had a total clusterfuck of a holiday season and angered many customers by overselling products they obviously didn't have in stock to sell in the first place. But for me they've been great as of late. Now TRU, Target, Kmart and WalMart on the other hand have been total shit to me for many months now, but then again I'm not even talking about customer service in regards to those stores but the lack of actual deals for me there.:booty:

1) I'm not implying anything about any other store in the world. I said that it's unusual for Gamestop to have a deal like that and that's precisely what I meant; nothing less, nothing more. You're wrong.

2) Again, I didn't say or imply anything about any other store, period. You're wrong again.

3) When more people than not are being told that the deal isn't true, then that's precisely what we're led to believe. At that point, it doesn't look like the deal is true. It's actually rather simple to understand. But then, given your replies to the previous two points (despite them being simple and straightforward statements), I can see how you might be thrown by this stuff, too.

4) See point 3.

5) Imagine that- you read something and took it totally different than what was written there. That seems to be your M.O. You might want to work on that reading comprehension issue you have.

Some anger management courses probably wouldn't be a bad idea, either. If your idea of having fun and kicking back is tearing into people in a condescending and psychotic manner, you could sure use them.
