Alright, this junk is up on eBay, so hopefully I can get my money back that way. If that fails, I'll have to return it to Gamestop. I have a question though. I read that they require $25 for pre-orders of collector's editions, so would I get that money back? I don't see how they could keep it. Also, do they refund shipping fees (including the initial shipping to your house), or do you have to pay for it to be shipped back (if you ship it back)? Oh, and one more. If you used a gift card for a portion of your purchase, does the money go back on there, while the rest is returned in cash/to your bank?

Quantity trick works on 360. Doesn't work on PS3 for some reason.


What is the trick?

Exactly. He acts as if Gamestop is the be-all and end-all game retailer, so the way they do things is obviously the right way. Gamestop is a fairly new company. There have been Game retailers for a long time, and they never did this, so how someone can suddenly deem it acceptable, "because it's Gamestop," is dumbfounding.

What's also dumbfounding is the way Gamestop is seemingly allowed to falsely advertise a product. That is completely illegal. You could not do that, and I couldn't, yet large corporations can. They exist because of us, and should abide by ours wants and desires. But hey, the vast majority want to be passive and accept it, while a small percentage actively defend their actions. That's just pathetic.

Hey, maybe I'll open up my "collector's edition," take the comics out, and sell the set without the comics on eBay as new, and claim it was available only through pre-order. Following through on your claims, as we've learned, is not the important part here. The only important part is making the sale, by whatever means. Hey, maybe what's-his-name can purchase it from me. I'm sure he'd be content.


You truly are ignorant to business. If GameStop is so bad at business, why is it still around? Why is it still number 1 at the gaming industry and why is it creating contract after contract with major developers? You say I act as if they are the do all end all..... If they aren't then why is Best Buy, Walmart, TRU, Target, and Amazon adopting the trade in deals with minimal success at best? Why is GameStop a billion dollar company with their shortly shady business practices? You're upset over nothing dude the thing works and at the end of the day there is a practice to the deal.

I understand if collectors editions were gut which I NEVER do but games where you have 10 plus on hand why not so people can check the case for specs and info...... The avg. GameStop is the size of a shoe store and there are many of those around... Unless you would want a business to spend countless money on security and glass maintenance for the inevitable breakage attempts then you don't have a valid point. I may not agree with all their practices ( Left 4 Dead and MK V DC being more used than mSRP new ) , but gutting is the best practice. Not only that but only certain people like you complain. Don't shop there go to Walmart or something.

I didn't even bother reading past that, as that says all I need to know. I'm so glad you love modern business methods. I mean, look at all the wonderfully cheap, Chinese made junk we have, now! What's customer service?! Need a job? Look elsewhere! Good business ethics? Who needs that? Man, business is business, and so long as they profit, who cares who they hurt, right?

Go away...

Thanks for the information.

They still have 580 in stock for the 360, to anyone wondering.

Doubt it. There are about 15 Gamestops where I live and only one store has the 360 version in stock, ps3 is sold out.

Yeah, and here I was prepared to let your ignorance remain with your inner self.

Dude, you're just a bitter old man who doesn't like Gamestop for your own reason.

Hope you find peace. I'm done with it.

"Extremely Limited Pre-Order ONLY" and "available for purchase after release" mean to very different things.



They had no right advertising it as such, if they did not intend to stick to it. That's called false advertising, and false advertising is illegal. Taking a passive approach to the situation does not help anyone. You may not mind being ripped off, but I do.



This is the same company that sells opened games as new. Don't defend them, you're not in the right here.




Did you ever think that maybe they produced an amount of copies they thought they'd sell and then preorders didn't reach that total? Like I said, it's been a day and a half. They'll sell out within the month and then you'll have your Precious. What a fucking baby.

Oh no, I don't like being lied to! You should be more concerned with the fact that you're an immature little troll. That's far more embarrassing...

By the way, your analogy makes no sense.

"Limited to pre-orders only" does not equate to "available after release date." It's not a difficult thing to comprehend. All it boils down to is false advertising, and shitty business ethics. This is effectively not limited, and thus not collectible. Had they not flat out lied on their store page, I wouldn't have it right now. As things stand, it's just a marked up, overpriced item.

Good news though, it sold fast on eBay. :)

Looking back at your "google search", it even states in multiple results that telltale was the source of the "preorder only" thing you keep trying to hammer in our heads. If it was on the gamestop site, its cause telltale told them that. I just love how you are on this big anti gamestop crusade cause you are butthurt over wording on something. It's just hilarious when people get all up in arms and throw out false advertising when they get upset. Let's see you use classic lines such as "bait and switch" next eh? All of us in this thread with the exception of a few are loving your rage.

I'm not raging at all, I'm typing as a normally would. You, however, are just an incredibly ignorant, immature little troll trying to start trouble, because you have nothing better to do. It's no wonder you troll though, seeing how unintelligent you are.

You're forgetting the first rule of trolling: Don't take things personally. You seem to be failing at that. :applause:

I'll tell you what, you being so small and all, I'll be the bigger man here, and end this argument before it starts. Cya!

I'm thinking of ordering he Xbox version just for keeping around. I think telltale just overestimated preorders. No big deal.

Yes, a bigger man always talks down to the person they are belittling with such wonderful insults as ignorant, immature, unintelligent, and "so small". Nice job hero.

Point is, you got mad, then got mad you got called out on it not by just me, but numerous others in the thread. Go take your ball and go home then and think you won an internet debate. Fact is, we are both pretty sad to even argue this, but at least I can admit to that while you think you won something. So Fuck off kindly ;)

I picked up a CE not cause I thought it was rare, cause I wanted the game/book and was sitting on a crapload of gamestop credit. The only think that makes me upset is the supposed freezing/glitching issues the retail version is having. ( Haven't played the game yet)

It's as simple as this.

Those who think this will hit a clearance cycle because Gamestop.com has ~ 500 are fucking nuts. Those will sell out in a few days if not sooner.

It's up to you as a consumer to decide if it is worth $80 but I'm annoyed to see this trend continue; There has NEVER been a release that was perfect in regards to matching preorder sales with preorder allotment. It is NORMAL for an item to come back in stock for a few days after release.

Let's suppose that the print was 10,000 and Gamestop decided to keep 10% as a reserve OR let's pretend they decided to keep 5% as a reserve and then 5% of the orders were cancelled, returned or didn't process due to payment errors.

Either way that is your 1,000 copies.

Or is it just for some users?

So I've heard. I can vouch for the PS3 version working on my Slimline. Only issues I've come across is lag and skips in Episode 2's finale.

As far as resale ability I think it'll drop down but still retain some value. This is why I buy some CE and LE's so I can flip em when I'm done with em. I'll be ok and not butt hurt over selling this for 50 plus shipping. Still makes for a great game and a great read

For me (on 360), there’s slight issues that don’t take away from the ‘game’, but rather the ‘experience’. Sometimes you get really involved into the story, or the moment, and then it gets ruined by a small freeze or loading. It has never ruined a QTE or decision making or anything for me. I would say it’s far from unplayable (can’t speak for the ps3 version). You’ll never die or be unable to make decisions because of the technical issues; but you may find yourself getting pulled out of the story every once in awhile when it takes a second to load during a cinematic or something.

I would recommend keeping your copy and playing it though. It’s a very good game still with an incredible story, and I say this as a person who isn’t a fan of point and click games at all. It's very far from "unplayable"

Wait... so wasn't the digital release of this game better on the 360 than the PS3? Is it the opposite with the physical release?
