Lol, I already returned my 2nd copy and kept the steelbook. Guy was trying to get Jr Detective and kept asking did I get a case, he even tried calling the store I got it from (Where the guys were cool because I just pre-ordered 2 other games), and they said I didnt.

He ended up giving me the 62$ in all 1$ bills.

WTF $1 bills? I would send a message to corporate and complain about him.

Um how? He pre-ordered two and returned two....If the store did not get enough for the pre-orders that is on the store/corporate. Not him.

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.

Technically no? I pre-ordered like a month before release, so I assume they shipped one for my actual pre-order. Not like I ordered at the last minute and sniped one. Either way, it looked like they had exactly enough copies for steelbooks left.

And to Saix, I pre-ordered one at Gamestop, one at Best Buy. I kept the Best Buy one for Flutterby. (Even though I could have returned either copy, I just preferred cash back instead of a gift card)

And lol Blaster, I WAS going to give him a bad review on the survey, then realized he didnt even give me my receipt back. I don't care either way, I just walked over to the bank and got 3 fresh 20$'s.

I would have been like "Sweet I am on my way to the strip club...thanks for the help". OR "$1 bills...please try harder. I want it all in quarters!"

Is there some contract stating you will return the steel book if you return the game? If not then I wouldn't worry about it.

Unless they actually had to scan it, I assume its all on good faith or whatever. Most employees tend to just throw bonuses around at their friends/frequent customers anyway, its not like I do this often so I didnt feel bad about it.

Just really wanted the steelbook and the familiar DLC too, and I had the money to do it

Well that sucks, but I'm not the first nor last person to ever do this. If he would have been cool about it (Instead of being sarcastic and giving me all 1's) I would have done a pre-order. (Thats my usual procedure when I return or cancel something)

I ordered my guide last night, so I'm hoping that I got my order in before they went all back-ordered.

My Wizard's edition has been cancelled. Even though I updated the payment information months ago they still tried charging it with my expired card. Pre-ordered the thing on day fucking one.

I returned a preorder once and GS gave me the third degree. It didn't even come with a preorder bonus, I just happened to find it cheaper elsewhere within 30 days. The unopened copy I returned was the same one I bought from GS, too. They just kept saying "But you preordered this. Why don't you want it? You preordered it." I told them the truth and their return policy. It was a weird conversation.

Checked to see how much time I had left to waffle on it and they were down to 96 copies left so I bit. If you are on the fence they will surely sell out soon enough.

I still have mine showing "delivery estimate Jan 25th" Also kinda funny, the guide dropped 25 cents and is now $23.74


mine updated to Shipping soon, thank gawd... I was tempted to pick it up at gamestop but nahhh (have enough to use a coupon to get it down to about the same price)

If the guide dropped down to $23.74 after your guide shipped then you're due for a refund due to the pre-order price guarantee since it dropped before 11:59PM today.

Wait until Thursday and if you don't get an email about the refund for the $23.75 (or cheaper, if it drops again today) item price versus what you paid for it, call/email them to get the difference back.

Went to my Best Buy and they didn't have any guides. It was very strange as they only had about 8 different guides out. The whole place looked like they did some massive cleaning as there wasn't nearly as much inventory as when I went a few weeks ago. Guess I wait for my Amazon order to ship, meh.

Edit: Should've checked the store checker before I made that run. Dumbass.

Lol, who would spend 3 minutes with customer service in India for 25 cents?

Anyone who orders from Amazon regularly.

It should happen automatically to have the refund come back within 24-48 hours after today, though if it doesn't, you need to contact the because their automated process didn't work.

I don't expect there should be a big need to contact them over it, though again, it should happen automatically and won't need a call/email/follow-up.

Just a heads up, best buy US DOES have a pre-order bonus. Nowhere online or in store is it mentioned, but I got it today.
