Looks like I picked the wrong day to swing by GS to try to use my coupon ... forgot that Blops2 is being released tonight.

In any case, have yet to find a store that has all 3 titles I want ... all of them had at least 2. Hit 3 different stores. Have 2 more to try tomorrow.

Question ... at one of the stores, the associate mentioned that I could buy in the store (the missing game I wanted) and have it shipped by Gamestop.com to my home. Has anyone done this before? Will I be able to use the coupon, if I do? ... and if so, will they add shipping?

Perhaps this was mentioned already, but did anyone else get a SEALED God of War Saga that did NOT have the PS+ code? The GameStop site and even the official PlayStation blog both mention it comes with one.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Still not showing up. Gonna get screwed again. If GS wants to get more customers, giving some the code and not others is NOT the best way to do it.

I saw some people were getting PS+ codes in their GOW copies, so I opened my shipped copy of Journey the other day. Got my PS+ code!:) Checked it just to do it.

The 2nd print run of the Collections don't have PS Plus codes. If it mentions it on the box, it should have the code. But if it's a newer copy of it, it won't have a code.

So will the Uncharted dual pack work with coupon?


The answer has been said countless times in this thread. Look it up.

You should buy the 2 games at one store at full price (do not use coupon), then go to the second store that has the 3rd game you want. Return the 2 games you bought at the first store, then rebuy all 3 games with the coupon.

A manager tried to do that for me. It was his suggestion and he claimed it would work with the coupon. I got R&C and J&D in store, but they didn't have Ico/SotC. He went to Gamestop.com to add it to my order, but the coupon didn't mark down Ico. He tried to override it, but for whatever reason he couldn't. So even though he said he could do it, he couldn't. Or he just didn't know how to work around it.

Shipping was going to be free. Oh well.

Debating if I should, even, DARE check my PUR account, again, for this thing. Ya'll better hurry and use your coupons!

This thread should have, seriously, been wikified.
Maybe someone can bump this post from time to time:

1.Free OR Paid Power Up Reward Members got this code at RANDOM.

2.GameStop's customer service says they do NOT have anymore codes to give out.

3.HERE IS THE TRADE FORUM FOR THOSE STILL SEEKING THIS: http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=331377


4.The controller bundles are NOT a part of the deal(however, atleast 1 person was lucky enough to get 1).

5.Getting the Uncharted dual pack is, supposedly, not a part of the deal and YMMV(even though some people have gotten it).

Finally tracked down a store that had all 3 I wanted in stock. Unfortunately, they were "pre-opened", as I expected.

I saw all of the vouchers that were in each of them, which leads me to a couple of questions:

1) Did either the Ratchet & Clank Collection or the Killzone Trilogy Collection come with an instruction manual? Neither had them ... just individual sheets as vouchers.

2) For the Ratchet & Clank Collection, is there only a single voucher that includes both the new Sly Cooper Demo/Beta AND the Anniversary avatar, or should it come with 2 vouchers?

Journey Collection came with the trial for PS+.

Not sure about Killzone, but Ratchet has no manual. Just a single voucher for both Sly demo + avatar in 1 code.

Jak and Daxter HD collection does have a manual though. Ico/SotC should have manual too.

I just unwrapped my GOW Saga (like 5-7 days after purchasing it) and it included a free 1 month of PS+! I guess it is an old copy that was in the store for a long time idk :3 It also says that if I redeem the coupon by 11/13 I will be able to download the GOW Ascension Beta! Too bad I just read is not yet available :/

If you live in arboretum in Austin, Tx at least two of the employees have codes to give away last time I checked.

Also I got the GOW saga and can't find my voucher for a month of PS+, is it supposed to be on the same sheet as the voucher for origins?

According to some of the older posts in this thread, not all copies of the God of War Saga came with the free month. I think they said there's some kind of note on the front/back of the game that states if it has it.

That is weird. The back of my copy says it comes with a free month but the only sheet was a voucher for origins.

Was it one of those opened new copies that Gamestop likes to sell? If not, then I'm not sure what the answer to your problem would be.

Using my coupon tomorrow (hopefully) on the Journey Collection, so I can also acquire the 1-month PS+ trial for the free games coming on the 19th. So basically 15 bucks for Journey and all the free games. Not too shabby.

Well remember you lose those free games once the 30 days expire...

Well, yeah, but I've been wanting to play GR, JSR, and Uncharted for awhile. Still cheaper than renting/buying them I think.

And if you ever do get another 1 month, you can always reactivate it.
