Man I love pissed off GS employees. Was told while trading today at some point I got flagged for buying new games and keeping bonuses. Literally happened once with Ni No Kuni, 99% sure it was the same guy who refunded me with all 1 dollar bills

Does GS even ban? I'm moving to a new state in 3 weeks anyway lol

Simply returned Ni No Kuni the day after launch. Guy was saying how I was always returning stuff only at his store (Only been to his store TWICE in a year), and how I had to return the Steelbook as well (Which I just told him my store was out of, and he even attempted to call them)

I just looked back at all my purchases, I have had 3 returns since the start of the year, and 2 of them were used games. No idea how the hell 1 return warrants a flag/note on my name

Sounds like the store in my town lol. I try to avoid them but I like to pre-order there to get 30% bonus then cancel, lol.

My guess, he was upset by all the people selling the preorder bonus on Ebay for $40+

He needs a new job if he's insulted by people getting ripped off; he works for a company that encourages suckering people.

Man this reminded me of when a GS employee who was obviously in need of preorders was telling me to just come in a preorder a bunch of games off him, keep the bonuses and just return them later. I even asked him if GS would notice eventually. "No way!" heh.

Also a few days before the PS4 reveal I was trading in some stuff and used the excuse that I was saving the credit for a PS4 to get him to to stop ask me about preordering games.

The guy goes "Yeah, I just got to see the new PS4 yesterday at a special conference for GS employees at the Javitz Center. The system itself looks reaaaallly nice."
Of course internally I doubted this, no way Sony shows the system to random GS employees before even the Press and Investors but I kept it to myself.
I had a nice chuckle when it turned out Sony didn't even show the system itself on the 20th.

If GS puts restrictions on anyone, it's usually on a store based level. I got flagged once in a Gamestop some 100 miles away for returning 2 games, telling me that Gamestop has a strict return policy. I never been there before prior to this. I left him a nasty survey.

Seriously, why offer a return policy if you're going to flag everyone who returns games? He must be new on the job or something.

any junior detective will get defensive if they catch a whiff of anybody returning games to keep preorder bonuses. it's a practice that's understandable. for some reason some gamers (and cags) think it's not stealing. why they can rationalize that makes no sense lol.

so it's understandable when some employees want to flag you. in your case, the dude just was over the top.

Yeah...I don't go that overboard lol, but I'll be sure not to return anything at all unless its actually broken until I leave the area. Just makes me laugh that out of all the flipping and stuff I used to do, I get flagged for 1 return. I expected to get banned from Best Buy long before GS would even warn me

There have been Sony exclusive events that were held in each major city for GS employees in spring 2011 and 2012, but it was only for SM's and ASM's. They got free PS3's or Vita's if they didn't already have one.

Oh yeah, that kind of stuff I am aware of. In this case I just seriously doubted the guy because I don't think a non SM or ASM employee would have got to see it in the circumstances he provided.

Plus he claimed to have seen the actual system. But I guess I cant blame him for that, I totally expected Sony to show us what it looked like.

Right figured that employee was an idiot but just wanted to say there were events and maybe that idiot got confused by what his bosses said.

Tomb Raider - $24

PSP
Tekken: Dark Resurection- $2.20

And before somebody complains, I got the Tekken for free and I traded TR disc only keeping my Target Steelbook for an eventual rebuy and with the PUR weekly coupon got $41.99 towards Gears.

These are all phone quotes from today (3/20). I will confirm most later today. No big changes.

:ps3:
Metal Gear Solid 4: $2.50
Saints Row 3: $15
Darksiders II: $14

:360:
Bioshock $6
Orange Box $15
Portal 2 $15
Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution $11
X-Com $16
Hitman Trilogy HD $14 (dropped a $1 I think)

I really wish this was Bioshock Infinite release week because I would definitely use a powerup rewards for a 50% bonus towards Infinite but I really do not want Gears of War.

Damn....Gamestop is showing they'll give me $415 for my 32gb ipad 4 in like new condition (which its been in an Otterbix since day one)..that AND around $105 more through the 25% bonus...that's $520.

Very tempting considering I only paid $500 for it brand new on craigslist. If only that was $520 cash value :/

I wonder if I could buy a couple games then turn around and resell the leftover, say, $450 gift card for $425 cash or so to someone.

Decisions, decisions...
