So, I went to the King of Prussia, PA location two days ago to see what they had, and they didn't have much out, but the guy said he'd look in the back. He came back with a copy of Skyrim :bouncy: So, I was like, "I'll take it!" Rings up $10, no problem.

I get home, admire the box...

And I open it up to find this....

The wrapping was already cut open, and it appeared that an employee stole the game out of the box and swapped it with a training DVD about organized crime.... oh the irony! :lol: The guy who rung me up even had to use one of those keys to get it out of the plastic theft box. ...so strange!

Anyway, I went back today, had a quick laugh with the returns lady, and they gave me a refund. It was good timing too, because an employee had a shopping cart of PC games that he was trying to put out on the shelves, and the lady who did my return told me I could go check it out. Ended up picking up the last copy of BF3, since they didn't have Skyrim or Diablo 3, which is what I was really looking for.

So anyway, for PA CAG's, as of 12:00pm today, KoP has:
SCII, SCI, Batman AC, Sims, Rage, AC Revelations, and lots of various Warcraft from what I could see in the cart.

The employees had no idea the games were on sale, btw, which I found interesting.

If you live in Columbia, SC the Harbison Blvd. location had 5 copies of SC2 left when I got mine. There wasn't a clearance sticker on or near them but it did ring up for $10. They also had some copies of the Sims. Don't think they had any of the other games.

There was no security sticker anywhere along the spine or top or bottom?
not shrink wrapped?

That sucks man...well at least you got a refund...they could have easily screwed you out of ten bucks.

Consumerist posted a similar story a long time ago with it happening at walmart.

I'm sure TRU wouldn't have bothered giving him trouble since it was clearly an inside job, considering one of their training videos was swapped into the case.

Yeah, no security sticker or anything! It was just poorly shrink wrapped. And I didn't notice cause it just got bagged on checkout. If the disc had just gotten removed, and hadn't noticed the weight, then I'd probably be screwed, but since there was a training DVD that I clearly wouldn't be able to obtain for any other reason, then she gave me a refund no problem. No harm, no foul, I guess.

I'm almost tempted to go back the places I went and go around the WHOLE store. I only checked the dvd area to the full electronics area. I peeked behind counters and all they had were the new inventory boxes.

I wonder if I should return Sims 3 Ambitions and or MW3? The only reason why I would keep MW3 is because I read there is a star wars mod out there for it. Does Batman AC PC even allow you to play as catwoman ?


BAC for PC includes Catwoman, but none of the DLC, that's only with the GOTY edition.

Found a way to search seems all the Houston stores are out of Diablo and Skyrim for sure. Can't find the Starcraft 2 product id. Although it's not on there site so it might not work anyways.

I posted about that last night to let you know I got the last SCII there yesterday morning at open (and to let you know that they never had any Diablo III to begin with). Could've saved you the trip. ;)

I also mentioned that I did not check the Durham store, so they very well could have D3 or SC2 - I'd doubt that now since it's on SD, though.


I must have glanced over your post when I checked the thread before heading up. At least I had stuff to do in the area, so it wasn't a total waste of time/gas.

It was nice knowing you, Previous Comment. It'd be nice if my post had been picked apart instead of being deleted outright, but maybe I'm too particular.

In short: Got there yesterday (about 24 hours ago actually) and couldn't find a single PC game. Looked like they were reorganizing their gaming section, which may or may not have tied into the unavailability. I DID find Kinectimals Now With Bears! with Toys R Us exclusive FAO Schwarz teddy bear for $15, and I just might run back to get it.

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

Yeah, I call total BS on this one. No way they would PM that many games for so low a price. Pics or it didn't happen.

Just ask them to pricematch the price. When I asked them to only pricematch diablo (only game i wanted at the time) they said sure and gave it to me for 10. I came back early the next day and did the same for starcraft 2 and skyrim. They were wary of doing the PM for SC2 due to it being a digital card, but they let it pass. I was very happy with them and even did the survey on receipt to give them mad props
