Here is the basic run down. Went to Blockbuster. Bought two copies of Dirt 2 for PS3 and one for 360 (maybe it was 2 PS3 and 1 360). Went to a store to trade em in, and he said it was fine. Went in a week later they said I was banned and they couldn't sell me anything or let me do trade ins.
Called corporate, they got the DM to call me, after about an hour of arguing he finally removed the ban. But for about a year the store manager that remembered me would make my life miserable. Like I pre-ordered a game with one of the "trade in X game for X amount toward game Y" and he wrote on my receipt that I cannot cancel the pre-order. Granted I was able to get around that as well. But it left me really disliking my local Gamestops.
I too had the managers' permission when I was trading in massive quantities of HDMI cables and duplicates(thank you Best Buy free Gamer's Club coupons that made for free games;)). But personally I have a feeling the local DM just had it in for me.
He basically accused me of returning tons of pre-orders(I guess you're not allowed to change your mind EVER:roll:), 'gaming the system'(by wanting to trade in a PS3 AND a stack of games for two seperate promos on the same visit) and even accused me in a roundabout way of pulling the old switcheroo when they first released the Dual Shock 3's.
Mind ya, once I found out that cancelling pre-orders hurts the numbers of those you're cancelling with, I did use that info repeatedly on the d-bags working his home office store. I'd make like 3-4 pre-orders one week n come back when the one know-it-all ass kisser was working n cancel them all on him.
I hope cause I want the PS3 with Assassins creed 1 , isn't best buy having the same price?
Word of warning: On the PS3 version of Revelations the copy of AC1 was a download or massive install file. It was 5-7gb's if I remember correctly from when my buddy did it from his copy.
