My LN SF25 PS3 boxed set got here looking mostly good, still shrink-wrapped and all, except one of the corners is dented in.

Is it something worth complaining to support about, or should I be happy with getting a sealed one for $60?


Nothing to complain about and from reading other posts your lucky that it's still shrink wrapped. Other were missing the DLC to ones where almost everything was missing.

Can anyone explain why they'd want this? Other than a collection viewpoint, I can't see any legitimate reason to spend more than $30 on this.

There is a huge retro gaming push right now and a lot of people seem to be willing to spend a lot of money and time on retro games. Personally, I don't get it. I'd much prefer to spend my limited gaming time (and money) on the best available (gameplay, graphics, etc.) rather than playing things for nostalgia purposes. Every time I go back to older games, it is fun for a few minutes, but gets old pretty quick.

I don't even understand new retro games like Double Dragon Neon or Retro City Rampage, so i'm sure my point of view is in the minority. Thankfully, there are plenty of gaming options to go around, so we can all be happy.

Pretty much the same with me. It's fun, on really RARE occasions, probably like once or twice a year.

You should be happy man.

I would be happy as hell if mine had arrived in that condition.

My "acceptable" $109 pink 3DS I ordered over the weekend finally arrived. It's brand new. Original twistie-tie on the ac adapter and everything is sealed and in order. Apparently these new smaller boxed 3DSes aren't shipping with the charging cradle anymore. Didn't know that. No big deal, I bought this one for my oldest daughter and still have my cosmo black 3DS and red/black 3DS XL. The description stated, "Large tears across the outer box. Deep gashes in outer box." I figured that just meant the cardboard container so I took a chance. Glad I did.

I bought my cosmo black 3DS from the Warehouse "like new" for $111 back in spring 2011 and about a month beforehand my daughter's "acceptable" black DSi for $80 and "acceptable" crimson red/black DS Lite for $64. Again, all were brand new as far as I could tell. I've had very good luck with handhelds via the Warehouse :D

I've been 0/3 for ordering from from AWD.

#1 - FEB Vita (Bottom left of touch screen did not work)
#2 - LG LED TV (Had big dark spots on screen)
#3 - Aquarium Decor (Snapped in half, and some parts were missing)

Don't know if I wanna try ordering anything from AWD anymore.

I wouldn't let it get me down if I were you. It just means there's a greater probability you'll receive something great the next time you order from them. ;)

Yeah I don't know who ranks these products, but they're not adept at judging game condition. I've been selling recently, and the AWD back sticker will say "Good" while the disc is flawless, the manual is untouched and there's superficial wear on the case.

At a certain point they may not let you order from them anymore...

I would agree with this statement I sent in my copy of cod2 for the Xbox only played it like twice then I realized I have more friends that play it on the ps3. So I sent it in to get credit for the new one well it was in great condition and they said it was only acceptable. Odiously they don't know how to judge at all.

who wouldn't want Retro gaming to have some of a comeback...

More revenue stream with already made games to sell from a already weak and pretty close to unprofitable industry... no thanks to people unwilling to pay $60 for games

Unless they just sell CODs for the rest of their lives....

Sorry to derail but I always thought they picked the wrong generation to push the $60 MSRP and it ended up kinda biting everyone, customer and company alike (especially when combined with the push for DLC to get the net 'sale price' of a game up). I'm frightened of whatever the prices might be for the next gen purportedly hitting this year.

Bought one for 128... and cancelled a couple mins later after thinking about it... There doesn't seems to be a lot of demand for it so it should drop even lower soon...

If you think about it compared to the rest of the world, $60 is mere peanuts ( earned) in this country compared to elsewhere

If you think about the cost of businesses and talent involved, and the cost of living, doing business... charging $60 is really not even that outrageous..
Most game developers aren't living the high life or have much to brag about with their salaries.

Just remember that $60 is probably split to over 1000s of sources that need to be paid.

I think th epeople AWD contracts out to is getting more scammy. I think they downgrade stuff so they save more "money" /credit then over estimate the condition when trying to sell to get more profit.

I've been noticing this since they moved there game processing center to Kentucky. I don't order alot from AWD, but my more recent AWD purchases have been dissappointing.

My Like New PS3 bluetooth remote arrived yesterday. It was repackaged (batteries were in the remote), so must have been a return, but does look new, including packaging. It seems to work perfectly, but I can't test every button (no 3D TV, so can't test the 3D toggle button, for example). But maybe I see why they returned it. This thing will control a lot of brands of TVs, but it only will control Sony stereos. What? That's pretty lame.

Also, it doesn't seem that well designed. It's sort of out of balance. The main buttons you want to use, for blu-ray playback and such, are at the bottom, and it's a fairly tall remote. Also there's so many buttons I find myself having to search for the one I want. I think they should have gone minimal. Still it's useful, so I'll keep it, but I really wish it could control my stereo. I won't be buying a Sony stereo just to make that work.

Another issue is that the volume controls can't be held down to raise/lower volume on my Samsung TV. You have to tap, tap, tap to raise/lower it. But I don't blame this remote. That also happens with another programmable remote I have, so I guess it's a dumb Samsung thing.
