People whining about having to do their job is annoying. Hence you no longer have a job and people buy most of their reading materials from the internet. Fuck off and go work at McDonald's now.

Best Buy managed to out-Gamestop Gamestop. Good show. :applause:

8-) Real gamers don't shop at GameStop 8-)

Not sure if I should keep my amazon order of 50 shipped or go to target for madden. At Targs I'd get around 13 dollars worth of gift cards if I bought the Doritos since I also have a preorder card.

I've always wondered, why do first-party Nintendo games always come out on Sunday?

I suppose it wasn't realistic of me to think they would extend the 3DS XL sale another week.

From my understanding, in Japan Sunday is their only day off from school and such so it cuts down on people skipping.

Not bad but I don't know if its worth dealing with store crowds for 25 bucks. It does help with tax and red card holders will be happy...

Seeing as they don't take the 25 you put down off the purchase, it's not a free $25. You just getting your $25 back in a form of a gift card.

Up for trade/sell:

Blk PSVita 3G/Wifi, Rosalina Amiibo, Batman vs Robin Steelbook Edition

Lego Aliens Conquest Display

Check my trade thread for full list of offers! (Updating soon)

Right so I guess you could put it toward an extra controller or ps plus right?

yeah you could use it on your next purchase to buy any accessories. also the presell cards are tied to the store they are bought at.
The address of the store is listed on the back of the presell card.
dont know certain amounts but all the stores at least in san antonio,tx each store should have around 8 each.

For America I've always thought it was because whatever is the big Nintendo release gets great promotion being on the front of the weekly ads.

At the height of the Dragon Quest/Final Fantasy days, it was law in Japan those two specific series wouldn't come out on any day except Sunday or the amount of people missing work/school would be staggering.

The memo I saw said that most stores should get 8 pre-order cards each for the PS4 with no replenishment. They are limited to one per household.

 

XBox One pre-order cards will also be available tomorrow (Sunday) for $10, and will give you $10 off an XBox One or accessory when purchased with the console on launch. It also guarantees you a "Day One" console, which will be held in our backroom upon receipt closer to launch. The amount of cards each store gets for these depends on volume, so smaller stores only got like 5, whereas the super busy stores in big cities got closer to 30.

I work at Target in electronics as well. I saw the cards today, but I don't remember seeing the address of our store on the back. Is it true that they printed it on the back? I always wondered if they would ever do something to track where the cards are purchased in order to prevent someone trying to use the same card at multiple stores. I guess I'll know for sure tomorrow.

if a game is released on tuesday they still put it in the sunday ads and just has a small note that says available tuesday

With the Wii U the address wasn't on the card, they make you show your preorder receipt that shows you purchased the card at that store, and they take the card from you.
