Found a sealed copy at my store. ~$8 after employee discount! :bouncy:

My experience was nearly the same. Except, the cashier said they had a used copy if I wanted it. I said no because the new copy rang up cheaper. Duh.


Was an uninformed sale. Unless they are checking the website, they wouldnt have known about it. I read all the emails our store gets, there was no mention of this sale. It's just something they did randomly. Probably since Beyond Two Souls is coming out soon.

You don't need to be a PRO member.

The only way you'll get display copy is if they are out of stock of it in their drawers or they are complete tools...(most GS members are :D )


Actually we always check the drawers first if a customer brings up the display copy of a new game.... otherwise we have to reorganize the wall and find a game to fill the hole.

I thought they only gut the display copy, which would normally be the last copy. It'd suck if the last copy was actually factory sealed.


We usually do have to have a display copy of every new game, which is why the last one is sometimes gutted. But there are times when a game ISNT on display so the last one would be sealed still.

Called in for pick up and they accepted the discount price.
Went to go pick it up but since I lost my ID they couldn't let me have it, even though I'm already 20...
Going to go tomorrow again with my passport or something. Dammit, why can't they just be chill like the people at smoke shops...oh wait, this is Gamestop.


Because we're supposed to card if you look under 40, akin to alcohol/cig sales... we'd get fired if we didnt card you. So we play it safe and ask whoever we think is possibly underage. We dont make the rules, blame the ESRB and get a new ID/license (which you should have anyways IMO)

Update since no one else could answer my question:

NO you can NOT order for free shipping to home from in store with this. The discount does NOT apply. Huge pain in the ass. I had to order a copy online for the full price to ship to home in store, and buy the crappy gut coppy in store. The guy said i could return the gut under the full priced online order when it comes in and put a note on my reciept about it. Big ass hassle

So those who wanted to, looks like you cant do that


Three things about ordering this off Gamestop.com:
1) You get free shipping if you order $25+ worth of stuff.
2) Heavy Rain Director's Cut counts as $19.99 towards free shipping (-$10 coupon applies at the end of the transaction automatically if you have a PUR number, on the payment screen). Only one copy per order gets the discount.
3) You only need to add a $5.XX+ item to qualify for free shipping, such as Red Faction Armageddon for PS3 or 360 ($5.99). Keep it if you want, or return it to a store you dislike. ;)


how is shipping free for over $25? I thought that shipping code didn't work anymore

Not a bad deal if you plan on getting GoW: Ascension and Heavy Rain: DC together, and you're a PUR member:

The code GSW1NS takes $10 off in-stock games & accessories totaling $69.99 or more. After PUR promos for GoW: Ascension & Heavy Rain: DC, as well as GSW1NS , the total comes out to $39.99 before tax. Heavy Rain: DC would be "free."

Picked up a sealed copy in-store today; the manager was surprised to see the price drop to $9.99, evidently he doesn't read his own store's ads.


Im replying to everyone apparently lol.... its not in our store ad. My store didnt know either until i told them.

Went to one GameStop and unfortunately they only have an "opened" "new" copy which sucks since I was just planning on keeping the game for now. But oh well I guess I'll try another GameStop.

I picked this up, but I was disappointed that I could not stack this deal with a $5 off coupon form the powerup rewards website. Kinda mad that I now have to find something by the 31st of May before my coupon expires. (just heads up in case anyone was going to try to do what I did.)

Why couldn't you stack the $5 dollars off coupon? I was told that if i had mine i could have used it with the sale ( i sadly didn't have it with me ) and i've done it before with other discounted games at gamestop. I think someone made a mistake.

I want to say that there was a very limited run of Director's Cut copies in clear cases, but I'm going from memory of what I saw a few years ago and can't confirm.

Unfortunately for me the Ascension CE is only available in store, and I can't apply a coupon in store can I? Otherwise its $20 off of either version of Ascension right now for PUR members, $10 off with GSW1NS, and half off of Heavy Rain for PUR members, would this be accurate?

That definitely looks like they kept it.

It gets sealed because that's how they can see if you open a "new" copy. The sticker they use should be a kind that folds and doesn't reseal well. They'll see if you removed it and tried putting it back.


My local one didn't have a copy, so I guess I'm going back online to work out that glitch.
