I bought uncharted 2 goty the week before this sale (I already opened it). Would they allow me to bring in my receipt and pay for another greatest hits game to get a free one?


I have tried this before and they did not allow me to do it. They have to be within the same transaction during the week of the sale. You could simply return an unopen item then the cashier can charge you again for the item you returned along with the other 2 games so they are in the same transaction of the b2g1 free week sale.

Simply buy 3 qualified game with the promotion and return a sealed Uncharted with your old receipt.

Went to 4 Bestbuys in New York (Atlantic Center, SoHo, Chelsea) and didn't see a single copy of Uncharted 2 or Heavy Rain greatest hits. Hopefully one of those stores will have a copy before the end of the sale.:-/

Daaaaaaang, tons of great games listed. My problem is I already own too many of them.

I want God of War III (didn't realize it had hit Greatest Hits! Just finished Chains of Olympus, 1 and 2). And I'd take Modnation racers to round this out...but don't have a third game. Heavy Rain would be perfect for me. Not sure I want to mess with in store though.

I must have hit 5 stores just looking for Heavy Rain and scored the last one at Atlantic Center. Uncharted 2 was still available at 62 St. (near Columbus Circle) as of yesterday morning along with God of War III.

Now I have to go through the hassle of returning Modnation Racers from my B2G1F purchase and get them to apply Heavy Rain into it. Probably have to return everything and do a re-buy at the customer service area.

Yeah, that's why I don't know that I even want to bother...wastes 90 minutes of my time, gas money, stress, and I probably won't find it anyway. Plus I've only got the one store, realistically...I suppose I could blow ANOTHER three hours going to the other one, but geez...at that point I could just order it from Amazon and save myself 5 hours and a lot of money :lol:

Guess Best Buy must not have enough stock of it.

Just checked my local B&M and it was gutted. The sale did have a sign in the GH area but much of the older titles were left. No copies of Uncharted 2, Heavy Rain, and no copies of any GH titles noted within the last year. They did have copies of Resistance 2 but nothing I already didn't have.

I found out yesterday that only 2 stores in my state had a copy of Heavy Rain. The closest one to me is 75 miles one way. At 150 miles total + my time to go, it is not worth it. I'll wait and catch it some other time.

Why did BB stop stocking Heavy Rain and/or pull it?

I also had trouble getting the promo to work with the following game combination : Uncharted 2 GOTY, Heavy Rain, and Batman AA GOTY . The BBY manager kept saying only the specific titles in the ad will work, despite the ANY GREATEST HITS and MORE TITLES IN STORES print. It's really frustrating to always have to fight/argue about Best Buy's own deals and broken system.

Apparently the Best Buy manager needs a reading comprehension course. ALSO why I didn't bother going :-/ I can't tell you how many times I feel like I'm a criminal or something for trying to get AN ADVERTISED OFFER :roll:

The problem is if it doesnt have a GH label, they dont beleive you. To a non gamer either the system has to work on its own, or it should say GH on the game itself. This is the problem I posted about on the last page. I didnt want to argue further or bother surfin the web on my phone to get it. I can spend $60 on something else.

What a fucking joke Best Buy has become! I literally just got in a huge argument with an employee while trying to buy Modnation, R & C: Crack in Time and Uncharted 2 GOTY. He said I could not do it because U2 and Modnatio n were not greatest hits. I showed him the website and everything. He said that to be included in the deal they HAD to be the GH versions with the red case. What a fucking joke! I hate that fucking place more and more each time I go, I will not even fucking bother anymore. I feel like going back and beating the shit out of that asshole!

Can't you argue by using the sku number on the back of the box? Aren't the skus identical between greatest hits and non-greatest hits, so their system basically should identify it as the exact same title?

That's garbage, pure and simple on their part. Just 2 weeks ago I strolled into BB and I couldn't believe I actually found R&C: ACiT non-GH/black labeled version for the GH price. Red label/case or not is irrelevant to the title's GH status.

Next time do not bother with the employee, get his name, and go directly to the manager. If you find the manager to be an illogical douchebag, get his name and take it to the regional manager and state how frustrating and rude they both were. Once you go to the corporate level, they will take care of you...and then they will take care of those who caused you grief.

That's why I like Josh so much. When peeps here were grieved by Kmart employees/managers for deals they knew little or nothing about...he'd contact them personally. This was occurring in the beginning for quite a few people...Josh took care of it and now you barely hear of in-store staff issues with their customers.

I went earlier and was told that Heavy Rain wouldn't work (because it has to have the RED GH shit on it but yet they had signage out in front of GoW3 and no GH case) but then I got up to the register with Modnation, LBP and, HR and it work perfectly after he hit subtotal. I was ready for an argument and everything.

Just wondering, what day of the week to best buys usually get their game shippements? I would think that they should be receiving the red boxed heavy rains some time soon. If it comes before saturday definitely going to get one with some other two games (probably MNR and somthing else).

That's why I won't even fux with best buy anymore. I figured id give them one more shot for this deal, but screw that. Definitely sticking to kmart for the foreseeable future.

Im still so fucking heated though. I want that douchebags job or to bitch slap him so I will be taking this issue as far as I can.

Go to their Facebook page and to their forums and bitch about it seriously I have read a lot of people on thre complaining and had issues fixed. Mention dudes name and location too (least I would I can't stand these douche bag managers or asst managers that think they are the ones actually losing money out of their pockets)

man. i dont have god of war 3, uncharted 2, heavy rain, demons souls, infamous or the ratchet games. been trying to cut back on my game purchases because of a huge backlog, but these are mostly all must have games. ugh


These are indeed some great games.
You can get them even cheaper right now with the Buy 2 Get 1 for $1 deal at GoHastings, though. They each run for about 20 bucks used (except Heavy Rain), and then you get all 3 for about $45 rather than 3 for $60.
Worth a look for comparison, at least.

I picked up Uncharted 2:GOTY (clear case with no GH label), Infamous (red case), and Assassin's Creed II (red case) at the Macedonia, OH location, but I needed an override since the register didn't automatically apply the deal.

The cashier and manager thought Uncharted 2 was the problem, so they were reluctant to give me the deal. I politely pointed out how the game was listed in the ad; the manager eventually noticed that the SKU was the same on any GOTY version, GH or not, so they gave me the deal.

@ Nintendocleveland: yeah ran into a similiar problem with the whole overriding.

It seems that as long as the games are in their GH cases they wont have a problem overriding but they still give you a hassle and take time to look at their Ad to see if they can allow it.

Poor Staff. i guess it not totally their fault its just corporate whose not putting all GH titles into the sale causing all this confusion and stuff.

For those of you who don't really care for the mostly multiplayer stuff that I think the vouchers in Uncharted 2 GOTY add or can't find another two games to get in on this sale at BB with, the vanilla edition of Uncharted 2 is $19.99 at Blockbuster and God Of War III is only $9.99 there.

Just another option for my fellow CAG's to consider.

And before someone says the used games at BBV will be all scratched to crap and incomplete, a good percentage of the ones I bought during the last BOGO sale there were mint/complete since stores have been instructed to keep the manuals/artwork/extra cases behind the counter anymore.;)
