I got Hot Shots for Vita today. I had a coupon that I tried to use last week but it didn't go through, now I'm glad it didn't so I saved $10 more bucks lol
I got a copy of FFXIII-2 for my nephew at Best Buy, with a coupon too.

I was told there wouldn't be an MK Komplete used by a GS employee when I asked because basically they would just be selling you the vanilla edition as the extra stuff are all DLC which I guess makes sense.

Mine had a tag of $39.99. I made a note to check because someone else posted earlier that they saw it tagged for $29.99.

I'm in for a copy of SCV and an Ivy bobble head if Gamestop's inferior pick up in store's service will let my GF's mom get the game for me when she's in the city on Thursday. Oh and that's assuming they even have any bobble heads left. Seriously Best Buy's pick up service is awesome.

yea, dead island is $30 when I ask them on Monday, I'm going to see if I can go to BB and have them price match it for $20...


guys dead island is $20 new, you have to tell the guy to actualy ring the game up at the register, not to just check the computer, if they just check the computer it rings up at $30 but once they actualy scan the game it comes up for the $20.

So is it odd that when I picked up gta 4 and ac:r that I found some games that I traded in a few days before were put out as new? I mean granted my games were basically taken out of the wrapper and maybe played One time but that's incredibly shady.

Were there used PSP games on display? Only reason I can think of denying you the sale is if they've shipped off all their used PSP games to other stores, which is happening.

They were atlus titles operation darkness and Spectral Force 3. The store manager told me he had never seen copies ever... And my cases I had switch out for used games since I was trading them in sure enough my copies....

I tried to get hot shots for 20$ using the coupon one more time but I was denied again. I explained to the manager that the fine print states nothing about it not being able to stack with other offers but he just shrugged it off. Gamestop is the worst when it comes to coupons. Sigh ....

Someone should set up a sting for that store, trade in a just-opened game, put some unnoticeable mark in the instruction manual or something, and then see what happens. And hopefully record it, post it on joystiq or somewhere, sue gamestop and make them quit that scam.

Couldn't find anything good with the B2G1 but I bought two copies of MvC3 for $9.99 each. So glad, and after I play for a while I'll trade it to Microcenter for $15 each.

Just got the last Assassins Creed my store had and of course it is gutted. I know it was the last copy because the guy took the display case after looking around the whole store for another copy, but I am glad I got it. Now I have all of the assassins creed games and the total cost of them were $52 and I got the Brotherhood collectors edition. By the time I beat all of these games Assassins creed 3 will be like $30 lol.

I figured as much but considering the fact the employee I was dealing with HAD to be the disgruntled wife of the real manager I didn't feel like making her go the extra mile. She seemed fit to be tied after I passed on the usual pre-order BS before forcing her to check stock for CEs. I'll swing by a different store tomorrow to pick one up. Thanks man.

Now does anyone know if the CE/SE of Dead Island is up for grabs?

I got the one store to own up to charging refurb fees on games for no good reason(like on perfect condition games) and not sending them out a while ago. I marked my copy of the one game and the coverart/case in an inconspicuous spot and as expected they hit me with a refurb fee.

I argued that my game was in perfect condition, but they argued right back about some 'defect' to it. So I traded it in and came back the next day. Lo and behold, there was the case from my copy of the game up on the shelf. So then I asked them if I could see a couple copies of the game because I was a stickler for a perfect copy. Funny thing was they pointed out my copy as flawless to me.

Then I pulled out my receipt from the day before showing the refurb fee I got hit with when trading it in. They tried to backpedal. I said I was going to contact their DM(who I honestly think put them up to charging the fees on perfect condition games in the first place to up the profits for his stores:roll:). They quickly relented and refunded me the cost of the refurb fee.

So checking White Knight Chronicles II to see if any gamestop around me still had them in on their website, and well I can't do the pickup at store to see if any gamestop has it near me, there is no option for pickup at store.

fucking wonderful, Gamestop.

You should buy something from that store and make sure she's the one selling it to you. Then do the feedback survey at the bottom of the receipt that they always whore out to you. Believe me, managers and district managers pay attention to those surveys. Be sure to be as thorough as possible on the survey and be polite yet firm in letting them know that you did not like the way you were treated.

Just purchased AC Revelations for 20, got home and realized the bonus assassins creed original logo wasn't on the front...guessing that means my copy doesn't include it. Can anyone confirm? It's still in the plastic wrap so i can take it back if needed. I was under the impression that all PS3 copies included the original AC on-disc, but maybe not.
