:360:AC:R showed up from Gamefly last night -- easily the best looking game I've ever received from them. Not a single scratch on the disc, I was pleasantly surprised!

I got my copies of Sonic Generations:ps3: and Final Fantasy XIII-2:ps3: yesterday from Gamefly and it was from Pittsburgh and both were in great condition (Sonic Generations had like maybe 2 chips? FFXIII-2 was immaculate though) which surprised me because from what many were saying within this thread, the Pittsburgh center is pretty bad.

I like having manuals simply b/c I selll every game on eBay once I've finished it. The "complete w/ original case and manual" hook always brings a little more interest and higher sale price to an auction, if only b/c the buyer is less inclined to think that they're buying a former Blockbuster rental.

(GS employee viewing live video of manual thief)
GS Emp: Wait...did that guy just...open one of our used cases and take out the freaking manual??? What is he thinking???

GS Manager: Rewind that....yeah....yeah, I think he did.

GS Emp (getting up from his chair): Well, shouldn't we go stop him before he leaves the store?

GS Manager (puts hand on employee's shoulder): No, man...No. Just let him go. Let him go.

Honestly I think you only hear the horror stories so you get an unbalanced view. All of my orders from Gamestop have come in good to excellent shape so far (knock on wood...)

About 90% of the games I've bought from Gamefly (probably about 60 games so far), have been in mint or near mint condition. The other 10% (always 360 games), have had noticeable scratches and two have been bad enough that I've sent them back. Virtually every PS3 game I've bought from them has been in like new condition.

Gamestop on the other hand seem to sell the shitty games online that they can't sell in store, especially during their b2g1 sales. During these sales, there is a 90% chance that one or more game will come in a generic black case without a manual and will be scuffed up. I refuse to buy any games above $10 from Gamestop for this reason.

This is because you're served by a DC with a good machine. There are other accounts of CAGs buying 10+ PS3 discs and getting all of them or nearly all of them with chips. You also should look back over those 60+ games closely on the edges with a good light. Odds are you will find some chips.

Good to hear that someone got a disc in good shape from the Pittsburgh center though.

Just chiming in to say I received my ps3 silent hill collection in fine condition, no scratches or damage. Also from Pittsburg. Still have to wait for my Ace Combat to come in.

Hmm. I've gotten 15~ games from gamefly, and Fight Night 3 was the only one I've ever received with a chip on it, although it played fine. Bully SE was scratched to hell, but I never encountered a problem while playing it. All the rest were in near perfect condition.

I guess some people are just plain unlucky.

Well this is stupid as shit. I get a defective copy of Ace Combat:AA. I report it broken and expect just a return and exchange.

Did you pay with a credit card? If so, call Visa (or whoever) and tell them your situation. They will most likely fix your problem. Paying with a credit card protects the buyer from getting screwed.

Gamefly will refund him, he's upset that he can't exchange the damaged one for a new one.

His options are: return for full refund, and either buy it at the higher price, wait for another sale, or take his $ elsewhere, or keep it.

Yes that part about Gamefly sucks, but at least you get your $ back easily. Luckily the one time I had to return a game, it went on sale again within days and I was able to re-buy at the sale price.

Are there actually going to be any deals in this thread any time soon? I keep checking back because it's always a dang hog call each night as to whether the new deals get posted or the old deals stay in the topic for three days after the fact.

But what does it keep getting bumped for? 42 pages later, what else is there to talk about but CHIPPED DISKS AGAIN. STILL. 42 PAGES OF NOTHING BUT CHIPPED DISCS

So true. I think I liked it better when people didn't know or didn't care about the chips... every time these damned chips are mentioned there is a flood of newcomers who are worried/inquisitive about the chips that everyone is talking about, regulars who want to update us on the condition of games they received, and stoners who were looking for cool ranch dorito chips but accidentally stumbled on this page. Like a sucker I keep going to the thread to see if there's a deal but it's always just people going on about "Chipgate" (trademark pending)

Yes, it was so much better when no one knew they were likely going to get beat up discs. :roll:

This might have an impact on our budding friendship.

My bad, I should've realized when the poster above called gamefly "fucking cunts" that this was a high-brow community discussion thread.

Yes, it was so much better when no one knew they were likely going to get beat up discs.

That's kind of the point. Most people didn't even know. They checked for scratches, put it in their system and when it played fine they didn't give it a second thought, but now it's like people can't sleep properly without knowing if their game is going to have chips, even if it works just fine. Yeah, collector types won't like the chips, but don't nearly all of them pretty much know by now to stay away from gamefly? Do we still need constant status updates on game conditions or chunlirocks popping in to say "chipped discs ftl" to keep them aware?

i've received both chipped and nonchipped discs from gamefly- it usually depends on the popularity of the title. imo its better that the thread be bumped w/ discussion and stay on the first page then go silent, get buried and then someone has to go looking for it in previous pages just to post the next wave of deals considering cheapy doesn't always get to it. the info about discs and who has received what might be irrelevant to you but its helpful to others that purchased the same games or are prospective buyers.
if you can't understand that then you're not living up to your cag tag.

There's lots of threads on CAG that get consistently bumped without new deals. The XBL thread is almost always on the front page, despite the fact that deals usually only post once a week. Not exactly sure what you're complaining about (as usual)

I've gotten one or two that have mild chipping so I know it happens. But I don't remember people ranting non-stop about chipping two year ago through the beginning of this year when I started buying a ton of games from them.
So it's either blown out of proportion and exaggerated or it just happens a lot more now. I believe it's the latter but I am also inclined to believe that a couple specific people have made it seem like a bigger deal than it is.

I'd say you're right on the button. Pretty much all that anyone needs to know is:

1. Gamefly sends out a lot of chipped discs.
2. The chipped discs seem to play fine (and if a disc isn't playing for you, Gamefly will have no problem refunding your money)
3. If you will not accept chipped discs, then Gamefly and this thread is not for you.

Anything beyond this is "people making it a bigger deal than it is".
