Kind of sad that this will be the last prize they're giving out. Also, they could've at least gone all out with the other goodies. The PS Vita cardboard and metal coins seem more like a child's play thing where you fit the coins in the slots.

By the way, is the cardboard the exact size of the Vita? I haven't held one and would like an idea of how it looks.


Nope, the cardboard is a little bigger.

Why would they tell me to please those that laugh in my face?

I had USPS do that to me before while I was watching them out the window... I think it's for when they carrier thinks "I don't feel like walking to the door to possibly not be able to deliver." Needless to say I was pissed and gave the ladies at the PO an earful. :lol:

will amazon take these games for trade-in? do they care that the case and coverart have the barcode slashed?


Amazon might care but I've never had a problem trading them in to Gamestop. Not sure if Best Buy will take them.

I like how being disappointed with a "gift" makes you an asshole, but trading it in for far less than what it's worth makes you cool.

nice way to end the rewards program.
I was going to pick up Uncharted 3 anyway!
I am entirely happy for this program and would do it again in a heartbeat.

For those in from the beginning we have gotten about 15 PS3 games, lots of trinkets, a pint glass and a bunch of Little Big Planet swag that my son loves.

No complaints here :)

You would've been better off throwing the games on Craigslist. Some posters received around $45-$50 on CL from some of the games.

I would think they just broke up CEs and sent them out in pieces...Didn't they basically give away the contents of the CEs?

They gave everything but the box and DLC. However, this seems unlikely. The littlebigplanet 2 CE was the rarest of the Sony CE's last year. In fact, it only received a price drop on Newegg and this long after release. Furthermore, 7-11 gave away the bookends and plushes as part of their slurpee point program.

That'd be pretty damn awesome if we got a replacement copy of the SE and got to keep our original copies as well.

what did your email say that you sent to them? Cause i didn't get one of these emails.

also... did anyone else's game barcodes come with a slash through them or just mine? Kinda odd i thought!

They all do, it's to stop people from reselling the games. Although it's kinda obvious from this thread that it doesn't work.

If you look back through the pages, he had e-mailed them earlier in the period to see if it was the CE of LBP2 and they had said yes, so he asked if it was an error on their part or Sony's and bada bing bada boom there's the result. And yes, all of the games (except I think for one month where our games were slash free) have slashes on the UPC.

Indeed. My copy of LBP2 had a small punchhole in it, though. First time I've seen that

With the exception of the fact its the special edition (which is basically the GOTY, not the CE), this is correct.

It be cool if they do send us the SE edition also, but I'm not counting on it. Do you think we'll ever get what the Modnation Racers Beta was? The Resistance games more than enough make up for not getting it, but in the e-mail, it just said that it was delayed not canceled.

I don't see why the Fuck not... but just because the beta wasn't out in 2 weeks is no reason to think or assume it's never going to happen.

The slashed barcode is not to stop you from reselling/trading it as a used game to somebody else. It is to stop a store clerk from accepting it as a return. As in you took the game to the customer service/returns desk of [insert store name here] and said, "I got this as a gift, but I don't want this game. Can I exchange it for another game?"

All of my games except the Resistance Dual Pack had a slashed barcode.

yeah resistance dual pack was the only one I know of that didn't have a burnt bar code area.

I will sell em regardless on glyde once I've gotten my fun out of em.

Got my package yesterday afternoon. Definitely sad to see the program go, but was happy with all of the great prizes that we have received over the past year. Oorah! :applause:
Btw, I seemed to get a normal set of all matching coins, aka one of each proper color.
