So i bought one of those "like new" $150 ps3 holiday bundles, because my brother asked me to find one for the nephews as xmas is around the corner.

Spoiler


haha, is it allright if I complain about this one? Like new, haha. Thats like a good one inch cave in on the actual real box.


Nope, you shouldn't.

You aren't buying a new product, you are buying a open/used item.

Expect stuff like this.

You aren't receiving a brand new pristine box with a brand new item inside.

How the box came is irrelevant to the item. A Good item should have scratches or small blemishes on it. a Like New shouldn't.

If nothing is broken inside or missing any important stuff, that is Like New.

My general rule is: do I think Amazon trade-in would accept as "Like New" if I submitted it for a trade-in? If yes then I don't complain, if no then I do.

Since it's for a gift I might complain, but the problem is that they're not going to magically have a pristine one for you so complaining gets you nothing. Either accept you're giving a ripped box as a gift or return it and start looking for another.

If nothing is broken inside or missing any important stuff, that is Like New.


Disagree. Amazon's guidelines on Like New specifically state: "original packaging is intact and pristine."

"Used - Like New: An apparently untouched item in perfect condition. Original protective wrapping may be missing, but the original packaging is intact and pristine. There are absolutely no signs of wear on the item or its packaging. Instructions are included. Item is suitable for presenting as a gift."

packaging is not pristine.....

Where their is one, their are more to follow. I would have jumped on it but still too high a price for me, so I will wait for a one at a cheaper price (if any get their).

Got my Good Otomedius Excellent SE today and I'm satisfied. The top of the box was a beat up and the artbook/CD had some cosmetic wear but the game came sealed and everything else looks like excellent condition. AWD saves the day again.

Bleh, that's too high. Now that I'm thinking about it, since I have easy access to the vanilla Halo 4 thanks to my library, I'd probably only bite on the LE at the $50-$60 price range, as unlikely as that is to happen.

How the box came is irrelevant to the item. A Good item should have scratches or small blemishes on it. a Like New shouldn't.

It depends on the condition Amazon is listing it as. If it says "Like New" then it supposed to be just that. Everything included, used or new but not sealed per se. Not in a torn up box.

What happens is the item is not actually "Amazons" but instead that of a third party vendor. Even though the labels etc. might appear as Amazon direct they are not necessarily so. The shipping data indeed comes in to the vendor from the Amazon backend. Its more like a "drop shipper" type thing unlike the Amazon Marketplace where the vendor is on the shipping label.

So what one should do is contact Amazon and say, "Hey... this was advertised like new from Amazon Warehouse Deals" yet arrived all beat up as is the case with this "Infamous Bundle PS/3". Offer send them a photo and of course, presume the actual shipping container was not beat up like what was in it.

They will solve it.

See... Amazon has no idea the "drop shipper" sent the item that way and they generally do act on it. They dont care about the $150 less commission the vendor received. The company (Amazon) reputation is far more important to them than the one sale. Be polite but firm. If they refuse to correct the matter (and been my experience they correct the matter) then ask them, "Do I need escalate this matter through my bank card and dispute the purchase? Last time I had something like this happen my bank had me do that and file a complaint with the State Attorney General".

That will always get their attention as 1. The dispute will cost them a minimum of $75 ($25 for the bank holding up funds, $25 from the card issuer aggregate and $25 per response to the dispute). A complaint through a State AG must be responded to and if they ignore it can result in fines. If too many people complain then things warrant investigation and a State AG will do just that. A company like Amazon will solve such things before they get that far.

I had Black Ops 2 for the PS3 but traded it in because I didn't feel I could handle the on line part since ive never played a CoD game before. Wonder if the Wii U community would be a little more noobie friendly.

You don't have to be good to play. Just don't be in game chat as you play, be in a chat with your friends and you won't notice your score. Eventually, you'll get better.
