Both games came out TODAY. No point of coming on here and asking about the DLC. Their site says 24 hours.


Damn. Didnt even know that. Oh well, 9 more hours to go. LOL.

So I know it does not mean anything other than internet rage but the user score for RE6 on 360 is 0.6 and on the ps3 is 0.4 on Metacritic. That may be the lower than the Mass Effect rage.


yeah, the review is pretty bad, one of the major complaint of the game is the camera angles

Yeah, as someone else put it. It should be called "Gears of Evilfield 6". The game isn't even as scary as the last resident evils

Same. I've started pre-ordering exclusively from .com and getting it at home (I'm silver so with expedited shipping I get the games on Wednesday). Take all the hassle and guess work out of it. Zero issues since I started doing that.

My local Best Buy has just gone really down hill the last 6 months. Since they refuse to properly train their employees I'll just let an automated system take care of everything instead.

Well...I had an interesting day at Best Buy today...

I called the store yesterday to put ME3 CE for PS3 and Lollipop Chainsaw on hold for me. I go there today to get those two games and RE6....This is where the problem starts. I pre-ordered the game like 6-7 months ago.

They see that I have it pre-ordered, but they cannot access the transaction, it's like in limbo. They say they can just give me $5 on a gift card and then buy the game, but I explain that that isn't the issue. The issue is that I would lose out on the $20 due to not having a pre-order anymore. The BIGGER issue is that on the same transaction I have Dishonored, Halo 4, and AC3 pre-ordered. That means all 3 of those games are in limbo too...

They agree that this is a problem, but they have no idea what to do. There is no way for them to get the transaction to actual come into the POS system so they can do an exchange. At this point it's been almost an hour of me being in the store when I should have only been there 5-10 minutes.

The woman apologized, and I don't blame any employee for this situation at all, but I blame the BB internal system. She said that to get me out of the store so I don't need to wait around any longer, she will just sell me the game as is, cancel the pre-order, give me $5 off, and will be in contact with me to ensure I get my $20.

While I do believe her, I have a feeling this is just the start of the issues with this order. Thanks to having to go back next Tuesday for Dishonored, 3 weeks later for AC3, and the week after that for Halo 4.

When I got home I called the RZ CS department and told them the situation. I tell the woman everyone was very nice and did their best to help, but the situation itself is unacceptable and I am really annoyed that I may have to deal with this situation another THREE times in the span of a month.

She apologized and agrees my situation is unacceptable and shouldn't have to be this complex and gives $15 as an apology, which is more than fair. I also ask her to note my account, because I am worried that if I call them in 30-40 days and say "yes...you owe me $80 for 4 pre-order credits I never got..." they will just laugh at me and tell me to piss off.

None of the employees at Best Buy had ever seen anything like this...YAY ME!


lol, you can still preorder dishonored, ac3 and halo 4 again, if you are worried about not getting the $20.

I'm wondering how the long shipping takes too. Ordered NBA 2k13, would have preferred to pick up but that wasn't in the cards.


They gave me a tracking number, but no info till 24 hours after shipping. I'm guessing 3-5 business days max.

me too. I dont mind having a day late, if I get to avoid the hassle of the employee not messing up, and having to wait in line forever at CS, in order to eventually price match.

Also get to save 2 dollars in gas, and $1.68 from bigcrumbs.

There will be a beta for warfighter on the 5th. That probably can help your decision.

You also realize that because they cannot exchange my pre-orders for when I pick them up that there is no way for them to actually cancel my pre-order and give me the $5. If they could do that then they could honor the pre-order itself. So either way they need to fix the issue because I have $20 in limbo at Best Buy.

Same here. Hopefully it's a temporary thing; I was planning on picking up my reserved copy of RE6 later today. :pray:

I am sure it will be fixed, but it was an interesting experience that was annoying. So far I made $15 on it, add-in any price matches since I have 2 months to do it. In the end here is how I see it.

Borderlands 2-$63.59
RE6-$63.59
Dishonored-$63.59
AC3-$63.59
Halo 4-$63.59
TOTAL:$317.95

Credits:
Borderlands 2-$20
RE6-$35 ($15+20)
Dishonored-$20
AC3-$20
Halo 4-$20
TOTAL: $115

Potential Price Match (Cash back not final price):
Borderlands 2-$20
RE6-$20
Dishonored-$20
AC3-$20
Halo 4-$20 (not keeping if it does not get $20 price match)
TOTAL: $100

So in the end I will hopefully pay a total of $103 (included rewardzone credit) for 5 games. Not a bad deal if you ask me.

No order history here either. So this is how Best Buy employees can get in late on Wii U pre-orders! Just kidding, I'm sure its just maintenance, until all my pre-orders get cancelled, then it will be ARMAGEDDON! ;-)

How do you "not" keep halo? Return it?

I would think so since the PM window is the same length of time as the return window. It's not like he wouldn't have other games to play in that time.

So anybody with a pitch-in card also have their card wiped clean when you check the balance on your account? Please tell me yes

When I check, this message appears at the bottom: "There has been a system failure. Please try again later."

So...I guess I'll try again later.

EDIT: Use BBY.com's "Check Gift Card Balance" feature and enter your Pitch-In Card's number and PIN. The correct amount should appear.

Correct. I am going to leave it sealed and since I have 60 days to return it I'll wait till the last week I can and then return it if no price drop happens.

Well then you would be assuming wrong. I have no intentions of using what I do not pay for.
