^You're making too much sense. That doesn't belong here. I give it 10 posts before someone asks about something you just clearly explained (or about the games of the week/stacking coupons).

Is there a good chance all used items come with the original case and manual and in good condition? I still have that $10 off coupon thanks the the Gamer Day glitch so this looks surprisingly appetizing for a few games.

You've been here a while, you should have at least read a few horror stories >_>

Well, they're not all bad, some people have recieved complete while others are disk only and beat up. So YMMV as usual. If anything, you can exchange in store if its defective, etc.

Nothing to see here, move along!

I should but I usually avoid Gamestop/EB Games topics because I don't buy from them very often ;)

Picked up FES, Eternal Mana, and Eternal Ring (at $1.49, I couldn't resist) for $24.01 shipped. W00t! Thanks, OP!

But after my order was submitted and confirmed, I noticed that it said "Currently Not Available Online" for Eternal Mana. Has anybody had this happen to them in the past? My order did go through, but do they not send it out and refund the order? Do they wait until another copy comes? *clueless*


I had something similar happen when I ordered Xenosaga III from them. I think maybe the "Available/Not available online" is tied to how many they have in stock, sort of like Amazon, and you got the last copy.

And yes, I did get my copy of Xenosaga III, however, they tried sending Xenosaga II in a Xenosaga III case first, so I had to call them and then they sent the Xenosaga III and told me to throw away Xenosaga II (as if I would do that).

I used the coupon code deal25U and it gave me like 22.5% off instead of 25%.

ex: one game I bought for 19.99 it gave me 4.50 off instead of 5.00. The same for the other 2 games I bought. Did this happen for anyone else?

The edge stacked fine and 10% worked. Also used the saver code for free shipping.

Sounds like it took it off the Edge Discount first - 10% of 19.99 = 1.99 so brings the game down to 17.90 and 25% of that is roughly 4.50.

Discounts usually take off of the original price, not the discounted price. Or at least thats how its been in the past

If you use Edge, it takes the 25% off the remaining total, not the original price.

Too bad you never know if the manual, inserts,etc. come with it until it shows up.

Ahh there it is. That is exactly what happened. I should have noticed how it took the edge discount first then the promo code. So the19.99 games then used 10% edge (-2.00) and that left 17.99. Balance of 17.99 used deal25U (-4.50) made it 13.49 plus tax. Thanks for the reply.

I'll do my shopping in-store. "This used product... may not include an instruction manual or original box" doesn't work for me.

Even with 25% off, the used games on Gamestop are more expensive than used games on Ebay.. :(

Well i went for PS2 games and i got Jak and Daxter (1), Ratchet and Clank (1), Shinobi, Fifa Street 2 (brother wanted it... i'm not paying for it), X-men Legends for around $32.

Of course i'm not paying for Fifa Street 2 so i'm paying $22 for 4 games. And i have had a hard time finding Ratchet and Clank that cheap (i looked for it awhile back... a lot).

But if you want some cheaper PS2 games (which i thought about) you can get around 8 games the break the $25 limit and get free shipping.

I got Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm for PS3, for like $28. Which is a lot cheaper than Ebay's $40-ish. So that coupon wasn't too bad after all...

whoa... is this new?

at the bottom of GTA IV and DMC 4 for xbox 360 i saw this...

" This is a pre-owned game that has been handpicked to be in the best condition and is guaranteed to have the original art and instructions."

along with a lot of games having...

"This pre-owned product is guaranteed to work and includes a box and instruction manual."

Of course every last gen game you are taking a chance, but it's nice to see them at least tell you with the 360 and ps3 games you are definitely not getting a disc only copy.

Okay, I'll try my luck ordering used games online from Gamestop. If I win the lottery and get a case and an instruction manual, I might just do it again someday.

Got GTA IV, Soul Calibur IV, Ghosthunter, Infinite Undiscovery, Dokapon Kingdom and Obscure: The Aftermath (Wii) for $70. Two I bought in-store today, the others are guaranteed to have manuals and original artwork.

Shit, I thought this was in store only. Too bad everything worth using this on, at least online, is "not available online".

SPLASH!

I really like the little note they give now saying that some games would include the full package for sure. I might actually order shit from them online! :cold:

I went to one of my local GS today to see what they had and, at the very least, pick up a new Edge card. Found Bully Scholarship Edition (360) and Prince of Persia (360) with original cases, manuals and maps. They had prices of $19.99 and $26.99 respectively and after all the discounts got them for $13 and $17. Sweet.

Now I merely have to resist their online sale for the sake of my wallet. Between this and the Hollywood Video $5 sale, I have a backlog that I could have never before imagine having.
