Sorry to ask again but haven't seen a confirmation. Is this no longer available online?


It wouldn't work online for me, but I never got a coupon either. The webpage for the deal says in-store only. This whole ordeal has been so convoluted that I don't know what the true deal was supposed to be. Gamestop really should be ashamed for how they handled this (or still are handling this). Especially since I have seen this deal mentioned as "news" on sites like IGN and Joystiq. It's not like it's only a few people on a few "deal" sites who know about it. Now that it is so public, they should make it open to anyone who is a rewards member - coupon or not.

Do I need to give them the whole coupon or will just the code do?

I just PMed at BB I got everything but Jak (already have it) and an extra copy of god of war collection as a christmas gift. They brought a manger and I had to show him a copy of one of the email coupons (grabbed off google saved to my photo file on my phone), a saved banner, and the actual web page. All and all it took about 20 minutes or so because of all the price adjustments, but DH will be happy when he gets home!

Of course it could help that I am 30, female, and had a 2 year old child with me. I find I often get things price matched that my husband can't just because I'm a woman. Women wouldn't manipulate video game deals since they don't play games right? lol I play more than DH.


YASSSSSS!!!!!!! Girlllllll POWAHHHHHH!!!!!! I, just, kinda stand there and look lost!:lol: Lmfao! BB price matched the $112.49 PS3 Display deal for me from Kmart and I took Kmart's back to their store.

The Best Buy Price Match Attempt of 2012 was a swing and a miss. Initially, it appeared it was going to be a success. I grabbed copies of Ico/Shadow and the R&C Collection and went to the cashier. Handed her a copy of this page:

http://www.gamestop....n/gamestop-sale

and asked if she could price match. She checked to make sure the two games were on the list and once she confirmed it she scanned in the games and tried to figure out how to take 50% off. Unfortunately, she had to get a manager override.

That's when things began to unravel.

When she returned with the manager, the manager said she was waiting to hear back from her supervisor due to the fact that Gamestop's sale included the coupon. Sure enough, the supervisor said they couldn't do it because Gamestop required their own coupon to get the deal and they couldn't match that.

I doffed my cap and thanked them kindly. One of the ladies asked if it would be OK if they still watched me walk away. "No ma'am," I replied, "That privilege only comes with a price match."

Though this little trip ended in disappointment for me - as well as a cashier and her manager - I like to think they'll have at least learned a little life lesson today.

I already received my copy of God of War saga from using the Sony50 code. So if anyone wants to use my coupon, they can.

Edit: I sent it to arbryant1.

Aren't the coupons one time use only? How would that picture work once they scan the bar code?

GameStop wouldn't give me 50% off Uncharted. Even though it's on their site, it's not on the coupon. Don't know why there is a discrepancy, but I was bummed. I still picked up God of War, Infamous, and Ico, but they were out of Journey, and I didn't get the deal on Uncharted.

If my game doesn't arrive with the mention of a 30 day PS+ code on it, I'm going to try and return/rebuy at a GS store!

I also had no luck with getting the Uncharted collection with this deal. No biggie for me. I nabbed Journey and Jak.

I also noticed that Journey has a 30 day PS+ trial. I'm already a member, but would this trial stack? Sorry if this has been asked a million times already. Here goes 1,000,001.

Took those pictures to BB and they price matched Ratchet n Clank and SotC/Ico

I also got them to use the coupon on an order of Jak n Daxter :D

3 games - $30 bucks (had a $5 coupon)

It has been known that Gamestop has taken the code out and resealed the game, but the controller bundle still has the code I recently bought it.
what you can do is email SCEA support and provide proof of purchase and they will email you the code.

Does anyone know if they will start doing this in store without a coupon? Still have not gotten one and it makes me sick.

I highly suggest trying best buy, just show them the coupon that was posted a page back.

It's worth a shot, but remember it's not fool-proof. I tried this at Best Buy today and got shot down. Here's the reasoning they gave me:

I guess you missed it when Gamestop opened every PC copy of Dues Ex: Human Revolution, took out the free digital download (OnLive) copy code, resealed the game, and sold it as new. They did this for every pre-order too. Why? Because OnLive was in direct competition with their digital service they just bought, forget the name.

So the ones that do come with the ps plus trial do they say somewhere on the box that it includes it? I'm just asking because I just got my copy of god of war saga in the mail from GameStop and went ahead and opened it and this one also did not have a ps plus code.
So the boxes r exactly the same for both of them and they really did open it and they took it out or did Sony just stop including the voucher code?

Just got my GOW Saga from the website and I didnt open it but it doesn't say anything about 30 PS+ trial on back. For those who might have purchased it and got a plus code with in it, does it say on back that it's included??

EDIT: Okay, found out on youtube videos that the back is supposed to have the PS+ listed below "Exclusive Bonus Content" but like many others who got theirs from the site. These ones do not.

Does yours mention the PS+ trial on the back like the picture in this link? http://www.covergala...-saga-cover.jpg

If not, then Sony stopped including it.

Yeah mine doesn't say that on the box so I'm all good. Least I know GameStop didn't open my game so now I don't have to go into a rage. :)

Folks who bought from GS.com might be able to get something out of GS since it still mentions the free trial on the product page.
