If Q doesn't say how good the deal is by this Thursday, I'm going to price match it at wally world.


I won't be able to say that soon, but I'd encourage you to try for $9.99 at Wal-Mart first, anyways. If they don't take it, then a good deal will be right around the corner.

You clearly know something we don't. Seems like you can't give too many details right now... When does that change? I want to know what else will be on sale! ^.^

Fearless (the guy with the incredibly poor English) usually posts Futureshop / Best Buy flyers on Tuesday, complete with scans and requests if someone is looking for something. He seems like a decent enough guy despite being one of the biggest hoarders in Quebec.


Seriously? Besides the crappy community that guy is everything wrong with the site in my eyes. He hoards, abuses promos and exploits the trade ins, never plays any of the games, makes a quick buck, and hoards some more. Then he follows up by bragging about it in his poor English (when multiple members have proven that he can speak coherent English and type in it).



Before anyone criticizes me, I haven't been trading very long, in fact the only three trade deals I did was to get sleeping dogs (in which I traded in my first 2 ps3 games LBp2 and Arkham City) and then bought TWPGA13 by PMing @ walmart for $20 for LBP vita. Then the other time was for MoH:WF and trading in SH: DP, to get my preorder of all-stars.

I only take what I need, and thats what I believe everyone should do. Of course their are times when some people take an extra or copy or two to save on something else, but this guy. This guy....

Purchasing 50 copies of tin tin and abusing the trade promos, and then purchasing like 20 copies of SH: DP and trading them in for multiple copies of AC3, and the LE of ZoE HD. That's pitiful, disgusting, and shows everything wrong with humankind. I don't care that FS is taking a hit for him, but there is something called limits, he knows none of those. Taking more than he needs for every fucking thing to make a profit. He isin't just a hoarder, hes the epitome of dealers. The worst kind of dealer too, the one that laughs at the community and brags about his dealing. And the community? They are amazed and although there are quite a few who don't like what hes doing, some of them welcome him with open arms for exploiting FS and getting such amazing deals. Some of them wish it was them that got to deal with such clueless FS reps.



Most of the discussion is just pathetic though. Things were turning personal in the Halo 4 thread because some guy thought it would be a good idea to let his kid stay home from school to play Halo tomorrow. Never thought I'd see an Education / Morality debate on a video game forum.


That guy is a idiot. I know who you are talking about, and besides the education/morality debate on how he raises his kid, how his kid grows up is none of my concern. The only fact that tripped me out alittle was how he labels certain games trash without even playing them and assumes everything created by sony is a cheap ripoff of Nintendo. That more than enough explains his IQ. That and the fact that him and his kid probably lined up for the midnight launch of Halo 4. Nothing wrong with halo, just something wrong with his priorities.

I don't mean to offend anyone when I post that, but its just been on my mind for a long time when I go to that forum. Alot of adults on that site are narrow minded, and I can clearly see that many of them aren't buying video games to play or enjoy, but many different reasons. Whether its getting the best deal to brag about, hoard in their lust of tangible items, or other reasons, they still never remain happy with what they get.

This is coming from a teenager who enjoys video games as a hobby, or when I got the spare cash to spend. Like I mentioned, a lot of what I wrote is biased so I don't mean to offend anyone when I say this, but get your priorities straight.

The main thing with RFD is morality arguments. Morals don't exist on the site and you are hammered down a lot when you go against something and mention exploiting retailers/ whatever company. I don't understand why some of these people don't straight out pirate whatever they do, because at least with pirates, I don't see them bragging with what they attained.

Honestly. I agree with you about fearless.. but to me he seems like a troll trying to get attention... so to beat it I just ignore... who's to know for sure if he actually "accomplished" the feats he claims... photos? those can be photoshop.. if not he could've just bought them all and then return them... who knows the guy obviously have too much time on his hands. Well whatever, why get pissed off and mad over people who's trying to get others attention and piss people off? That'll just give in to what they want... the sooner people start to ignore the less they feel they'll have accomplished.

Well all in all, should pity the guy, spends so much time building a virtual all mighty image of himself... while others have a hobby and a life.

Pirates can't make a quick buck off pirating (well they can but that's illegal and will land you in jail). There's nothing wrong with trying to get a good deal on video games because you genuinely enjoy them and $60 isn't feasible for a lot of people. Instead at RFD the mindset is to see who can hoard and scam the most and then gloat about it. Greed, gluttony, sloth, pride, and envy at its finest.

Oh, I wasn't trying to defend Fearless or his hoarding, but he does seem to be one of the few RFDers who will actually try to help people get a deal. Most hoarders that I've seen in person are middle aged Chinese men who resell their haul at mom & pop shops or flea markets and wouldn't give you the time of day.

Look, we can all agree that those hoarders are jackasses, but the bottom line is, that's how capitalism works.

If people can put minimal effort into buying unlimited copies of a product at a low price and converting them into either cash or a product that's worth more, then they're going to do it.

If a guy can buy up 100 copies of a game that's been priced down to $20 and trade them in for something worth $60, or sell them through on eBay for $40, with minimal effort, no amount of community- or subculture-enforced morality is going to stop that.

Sadly, for the rest of us, it just means we're going to have to work harder or get lucky to get the best deals and there's not much else we can do about it.

This, i agree with. If we pose a question of the morality of hoarding games to sell them for a profit, we may as well question our entire society (and perhaps we should). Bottom line, it's not illegal, and there's no regulation.

To be honest, if I had that much free time, I'd probably do the same. After learning how to program and speak Japanese, of course. And after clearing up my gaming back catalogue. So... Never.
