Got mine from Amazon a couple days ago. It was in a small box with some air bubble stuff. It wasn't damaged at all and will remained sealed forever.

Same here. The side looks slightly crushed.

I just got another copy in from amazon, shipped in a box and securely fastened to another piece of cardboard with sealed plastic so as the game could no way get damaged. Shipped out of lexington KY and I couldn't be happier.

Lexington KY seems to know better how to pack their stuff than other warehouses.

From my past experiences, since I only tend to have three warehouses handle my order with rare exception, Whitestown IN and Lexington KY are quite good in using boxes versus bubble mailers for smaller items.

Coffeyville KS are a bunch of idiots when it comes to packaging and they're bubble-mailer happy on anything and everything.

They don't use bubble mailers for me all that often. I'm more having issues with those big pieces of cardboard that they fold into a box, which are TOTAL shit for boxed games.

And I bet the number of people who actually have them is in the mid hundred thousands, due to all the multiple buying and stashing. But where did you get your numbers from?

Proud to say I have 1. The worst hoarding I ever do is a single extra copy.

And based on the stuff I received today, Nevada is my warehouse of choice! lol

Not for long. I think I returned roughly 30% of the stuff I ordered which came from the Nevada warehouse last year. They regularly have no problem shoving stuff in boxes which are way too small or crushing soft boxes to make them fit.

Phoenix is the worst for me around 60 percent of the stuff I get from them goes back because it comes damaged in some way I don't even know how they did it.... If I use one day it usually comes from Vegas or IL which are usually really good.

I didn't even know they had a Nevada warehouse. They've always shipped from Phoenix, AZ for me and I live in Nevada. No complaints on AZ here. Everything I've ordered has come completely secured and undamaged.


Yes! I am in a signature! :applause:

They ship your items from a different state so you won't pay taxes.

Great job Amazon...

I ordered one DS game, which comes in a small case, and they shipped it inside of a large box.

This Mario All Stars, which comes in a special larger box, was squished into a box too small for it.

I wonder who decides on this packaging? My game didn't come too damaged, but the box is a little bent from their idiotic decision.


I had a DS game in a full sized box with ass loads of paper to fill up space. Then my Ys 7 LE came in a damn fold up piece of cardboard, and mario in a padded envelope. What are they smoking?

I got mine in a fold over cardboard situation and it was fine. The top of the game box had minor wrinkling but I'd say that was more of a factory thing than a packaging thing. The fold over box was pretty sturdy, or at least they didn't drop heavy shit on top of it.

I am going to bump the previous responder's question - where does one go to get these type of production numbers?

Game sales aren't always commonly known, but since Nintendo is a publicly held company, they do declare sales of larger titles, which they did in this case last month.
If you ever want just the Japan (media crate) numbers, this site is good:

Also, as for the internet tax issue, it's kind of a myth. Unless you live in Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire or Oregon, internet purchases are not tax free. If the business does not collect the tax, the consumer is legally required to pay this Use Tax.
However, it's almost never monitored whether consumers pay it, and most people either deliberately or unknowingly ignore it.

amazon shipping is pretty random, i'll have to agree with you on that one

personally, i have had the best shipping experience with gamestop - everything i have ordered online has been secured inside of a nice box to make sure it doesn't take any damage through shipping...but they always use ups (at least every time i have bought something) which is more $$$$

I have found that EA ships in very sturdy boxes. Internal padding can be lacking though.

Wow, my experiences were completely different.

I've ordered two things online from Gamestop before. Both came in a flimsy bubble wrap. One game didn't even come with a standard case, it came with a PS2 case. And it was broken in half. The artwork was torn along the side of it.

Just got a couple more copies in the mailbox from gamestop. packed in a sturdy carboard box but with no plastic around anything because 2 copies are just about too wide for the box but they go. Immaculate condition. Here's hoping nintendo makes a better compilation with all the mario's in hd for the next gen nintendo console and I don't care what the cost is. Imagine a $150 epic mario collection with a figurine of mario from each different game and a hardback mario history book and it would all come packaged in a smb castle complete with flag pole.

What happens when they release a Mario after that compilation?
