They were not for flips. I wanted a personal copy since I traded mine a long time ago when I got the helghast edition and the other 2 were for my friends since we were planning on playing online.


You buy them games/get them deals? Wow. Need another friend?

I don't consider QTEs gameplay. This "game" is about as deep as the mini games on a disney DVD.

I let them know about the deals and pick the games up for them when they can't make it. plus its a lot cheaper to buy all 3 together and then just split the cost evenly since all 3 of us wanted the game.

Your gas cost/time must be infinite. If I had a friend who would do that, I think I'd use them regularly.

You must be one of those people who does not have anything better to do than to start a conflict over the internet. I am not gonna argue with you since you do not know the situation or know anything about my friendship. The whole reason why I posted my comment is to let people know there might be a problem when buying some of the sale prices in store along with the current preowned promotion since BB is known to have weird glitches on their system.

I've never ordered pre-owned games from BB before. I know DLC codes are probably not included but what about manual and overall quality of the discs?

Whenever they get trade-ins they usually have them shipped to get the CD cleaned/buffed before they shrink wrap the games before they are redistributed to stores.

That's what has been implied.
The discs I've received have all been in good condition.
All the games I've ordered have come in a case with artcover and manual but I'm not sure if it's standard or I got lucky since I know I see a lot of copies in store that have that ugly printed cover

You've gotten lucky than. They don't guarantee cover art/manual when you order used games online. Though it seems to be pretty good odds you will get them I wouldn't count on it.

Not that I recall. I think AC:R was the first one to have one.

Also, my copy of Enslaved used from online did not have a manual =[

Ugh, whhhhhyyyy. Just went to store pick-up and Killzone 3 and God of War 3 are disc only. Does Best Buy let you swap or return/rebuy a different copy with box art at a different store if you keep the game sealed?

#504 iduncurr

Posted 29 April 2012 - 05:44 PM

Possibly if you can find another copy.
I don't see why they wouldn't unless you get a nit picky CS Rep

Edit: and this is why I've only been doing disc only trades at GS/BB.
In case I get a generic case or the case gets dented.

Yeah just got back from buying MvC3, Killzone 3 and Dragon Age 2 in store. When he scanned them they rang up at normal price. The cashier had to price match for me (man people at bestbuy really hate adjusting prices the guy had a sour face the whole transaction) and the B2G1 rang up just fine. Though I'm kicking myself for forgetting to use my reward zone for the 10% off. Could've saved two bucks I think?

They were going to give me two brand new copies of Brotherhood and KZ3, but the guy checking receipts called up another employee and they switched to pre-owned ones. Luckily, they had the original boxes and manuals although the discs have some scratches on them.
