Ok do you understand how ripping discs in a ps3 works cuz that's a non answer, did you follow the redump guide and use direct disc access or

Ok how did you rip the game chief, does it match redump? If not it's not good

The game rips 100% and I've been playing it all week without it freezing once. I don't understand how this is possible and I also don't understand how games get parts of the top disc label missing with scratches all over the top and pinholes. I have launch PS3 games that have been played for years and have been left laying out, dropped, etc. and they have no scratches so I don't see how anyone can scratch a Bluray this bad.I also think people should be careful about the discs they put in their systems. Just because it plays doesn't mean it's good for the laser. There's a few badly resurfaced games from GS that work fine but you can tell the system is struggling to read the disc and the fan is loud meaning the system is working hard to make it play. Especially PS2 discs. This only happens with resurfaced GS discs. The discs work on the PS2 but the laser is louder than normal and the system is hotter when I'm done playing. I think some of these shitty condition games have the possibility of breaking our consoles even if they technically do work because the system is having a hard time reading them.


How did you rip the game, not buying this claim, did it match a known Redump hash?

Rare Walmart variant cover.

Now this one is shocking. It is disc only and the disc is scratched and you can see through it, but it somehow works... I can post videos or pictures of the game on my TV if you don't believe me. I always heard that if you can see through the disc it wouldn't read. I guess that's just a myth. How does a disc get scratched like this? It has to be on purpose, I don't see how playing it can cause this. But why would someone purposely scratch it on the top?

There is 100% no way that disc is fully readable, having dumped 15 copies at this point every copy with holes failed to rip properly and would load in but eventually fail with a dre

ran into games that dont work like golden sun for ds
think its just gamestop being gamestop


Gamestop gets a lot of fake cartridges for popular stuff since they don't test and the trade in is good

Ton of crappy dollar games incoming for everyone I guess?! Love how Fedex tells you packages are on the way and GS site will probably get stuck on "preparing for shipment" forever.

(I didn't want to get flagged for never picking up orders 5 states away) :oldman:

I'm about to have a lot of battlefield and dj hero, tbh I hope they use those small boxes just to use for eBay

I just ordered another xbox gc no problem

What was the time of your last purchase? I haven't been able to use a gift card on anything past 8:15 P.M. (EST).


Like 630 central or so

They may be putting a hold on gift codes for now to buy time for them to eliminate the void the gift cards. Worst case scenario


I got all of mine and moved them to xbox credit to buy a phone

My order actually just showed up out of the blue... wasn't even in my USPS informed delivery email. There's also two diff tracking numbers on here for whatever reason. Oh well, guess I should be happy I got my item.


I had a copy of worms Armageddon get delivered that didn't even have the game on the box a couple weeks ago.

Fyi, pay for the faster shipping if you don't want to wait, in getting things next day with that, otherwise they sit in carrier pickup hell

Got two fake worms Armageddon in, one cart didn't even have a rom chip on the board it had been clipped off, another was actually wcw nwo inside

It's probably from their shitty resurfacing machines that they use to destroy perfectly good games

 

most of my copies had no signs that they had been resurfaced, some of the copies actually had RETURN TO WH - DEFECTIVE stickers on the cases, hidden under those black stickers theyve been covering things up with lately. Really feels like they had a stack of NCAA returns and somebody decided to just toss them in as inventory despite a lot of them being defectives

Try over $200 on Amazon if it's complete and the disc is in good shape.

of the 13 I got from Gamestop, 6 came with original cases (original NCAA case has a holo NFL sticker on front also), none came with the insert (I dont believe the game had an actual manual)

I bought ncaa football 14 ps3 for $55 shipped. I pray to God that it's complete.

I bought 13 copies 3 weeks ago. 9 of the 13 copies had holes and scratches through the top layer. Another 1 of the 4 good copies had a small hole in the edge of the top layer but it was outside of the game data and ripping the disc multiple times finished without error. I returned them to a Gamestop a week and a half ago, wouldn't be surprised if they are being recirculated.

I'm aware of 4 other copies recently purchased that also were pockmarked with holes and scratches. Goodluck

So if the discs have any type of hole when holding it up to light, it is 100% damaged/unplayable? Or it just might have damage? If so, I've been checking wrong. I've only looked for heavy scratches/middle ring cracks in the recent 100s of games I bought. Never thought about checking out the top and holding it up to light. That's gonna take some time.

Looks like they brought back the B1 over $30 deal get X off any preowned game back, yet they bumped it down from 50% off to 40% off lol.


I test rip all of my discs in a PS3 to check for issues, all of the NCAA couldn't complete that had issues

Posted by Jurai on 16 July 2020 - 06:55 AM in Video Game Deals

It’s so ashamed that they sold so many copies of something that’s obviously damaged. Like you said, I wouldn’t be surprised that they keep reselling them until customers don’t return them.

Did you return all of your bad copies to the same store?

Yes I returned all to the same store, the rep working did look at the discs and saw how bad they were and did put them in the system as defective returns for my refund, but who knows if that stops them from getting back to the warehouse and just recirculated. I stopped buying them because I have little faith that I won't just get back one of the ones I returned

It's quite ridiculous. I had 3 Xbox games that were "shipped" on June 20th. They're supposed to be delivered today


I have an order from three weeks ago that has been "awaiting carrier pickup" for three weeks, makes no sense

Theres no holes but one long gash across the disc

can you take a photo of the gash, trying to ascertain if they're putting returned defectives back into rotation

Was it a normal return (within 7 days) or did you use the paid warranty?


30 days won't get questioned at this point, they aren't shipping in any reasonable time any more, I returned like two weeks after delivery



#14307648 The Gamestop Thread

Posted by Jurai on 21 July 2020 - 02:52 AM in Video Game Deals

I guess I assumed if they didn't have any replacements (online as well) that I would be refunded, but that was probably a stupid assumption. If that doesn't turn out to be the case I believe I have 30 days to get a refund on the $3 warranty, even if I don't, it's $3.


GameStop will refund you regardless, I returned $415 worth of NCAA 14 and got a refund on the spot

LRG responded on Twitter saying the reason they can't put it on disc is because the game isn't DRM free.

Not defending or attacking them, just relaying information.


I mean why even do it then, or not just wait to do the physical of the console ones? This is icing on the cake that their original intention was just a farce

Steam or Epic Store code in box

 

"Imposters need not apply"

This is my only gripe with LRG games and why I'm reticent to order from them IF (and only IF) the game is going to get published and sold via retail stores anyways. With SOR4, I wanted to support them, but I'd rather get it EARLIER so I can play it (I only buy physical games).

For other smaller-run/lesser known games, I'm super grateful LRG brings those games to physical release. Will always try to support those releases.

That all said, it's unfair for LRG because games like SOR4 and Shantae probably became popular enough to get larger physical print runs BECAUSE of LRG, and its developer-friendly approach towards not demanding exclusivity. This, however, does mean LRG will sometimes get burned. Kudos to LRG, though, for honoring cancellations on SOR4. They're a solid company, and I hope they're around for a long time.


Shantae was pretty popular before lrg, I wouldn't attribute them to it's popularity in the slightest
