It's all on a disc. I've been meaning to get this forever.


Well Nextworth has 1 PS3 left at $12. Free shipping with prime.

Well, I don't actually own a printer. :)

Therefore it would have been a week + for them to ship me the label, another week or so to get it back to them, and then another 3 or 4 business days to get it processed.

I also thought the box arriving unsealed was a little strange.


Sounds like that's your problem and you shouldn't use that to reflect it on Amazon's customer service.

No kidding, who doesn't own a printer in this day and age. Especially if you go on websites like these. Picking up a cheap 20 dollar one from sales isn't going to break the bank, and ink can be had for cheap.

I never said the customer service was bad. I said I was kind of bummed out by the way the item arrived considering it was obvious the disc was damaged.

Just had a rather unfortunate experience with a copy of Sonic Ultimate Genesis Collection for the PS3. The game arrived in an Amazon box that wasn't even sealed up. Upon opening the case I notice the game is scratched in multiple places. I put it in my PS3 and the thing didn't even load.

I contacted Amazon Customer Support and they tried to get me to ship the item back in to them. Yeah, that really makes sense to spend a few weeks waiting for them to ship me a mailing label, sending it back in, and them processing it just to get $15 or so back. After a bit the customer service person relented and agreed to just give me a refund.

One of the few unpleasant experiences I have had with the Amazon Warehouse. It would be nice to see a little more effort put into culling out obviously damaged goods though.


I mean, what do you expect, them to refund every complaint? How else would they handle such complaints?

And honestly, it doesn't take that long. I returned a video card a few weeks and they issued the refund as soon as I dropped the package off at UPS.

I don't own a printer because I really don't have any need for one. This was the first time I have ordered something from Amazon that arrived obviously broken.

I'm sure sending it back in is a perfectly fine way to handle most complaints. Once again, I was happy with the way customer service handled my problem. I wasn't impressed with a box arriving unsealed and an obviously scratched up disk being advertised as "very good".

This has nothing to do with your specific situation but I'm shocked you don't have a printer let alone ever needing one.

Could you guys recommend me some Xbox 360 Headsets that I should be on the lookout for here on AWD? something on the cheap...

I own a Surround Sound System but it can become a little too loud at night.

can these headsets be used for PC gaming too?

For a cheap pair I would recommend Turtle Beach X11s or X12s.

I know X11s work on PC and I assume the X11s would too since I think they are just a new revision.

I'm the same way. The decent thing is I work at an OfficeMax, so whenever I need stuff printed, it's easier to just go there. Plus, how the companies make it (cheap printers, expensive ink) makes me not want to invest in a printer.

well just got my turtle beach X12, it looked brand new, but just in a big ziplock bag instead of the actual packaging, and there was a scratch on the volume control puck. Sound works great, but the Mic doesnt work at all, wont pick up any sound. Guess I gotta send it back. Was really hoping it worked. tested on my PC as well, Mic still wont work. On the Xbox it detects that a mic is hooked up in MW3, as it shows the mic icon, but it wont pick up any noise, guess somethings broke inside it.

EDIT: I filled out the return stuff on amazon, and I printed the return authorization with the order ID, my reason for returning, etc, but how do I print a return label?

EDIT 2: ok, just noticed it said the UPS driver will bring the label, so all I gotta do is pack it, and include the slip I printed out in the box. right?

I've never heard of the UPS guy bringing the label, but I could be wrong. I've always received labels from CS to print and send back in the past. Check with them I suppose?

I had UPS bring me prepaid shipping labels to my doorstep for a return, but it wasn't from a amazon return though (amazon usually provides a link to print it).

well on the page where I print the return confirmation thing, on that it says UPS will bring the label. There no label to print, or no other link. I checked on amazon and in my email. They let u print it if u choose to drop it off at a UPS store, but I chose pickup.

Why would AMZ owe you anything let alone $20? No DLCs are guaranteed whenever you buy it off AWD.

Amazed at how awesome Amazons CS can be. Unfortunately, people like you may cause that awesomeness to end one day. You are never guaranteed that DLC will work. Its always stated on the description of anything game related even if DLC isnt available. The mistake was yours and yours alone.

Actually I've noticed that sometimes the description will explicitly say that dlc may be used, while other times it will simply mention things about the packaging being damaged or reboxed. Now that's not to say there aren't shady people out there trying to beat the system. Just saying.

Damn, I wish I could have gotten just a 5 dollar credit so I could have picked up a new battery for the controller bundle I got. Would have let me keep the guy. But they just wanted me to return it. It all works, but that would have definitely saved me some hassle.


Yes! I am in a signature! :applause:
