Do you guys think this is enough to ask for a partial refund from Amazon? I bought COD:Ghosts in Very Good condition and it came in a DVD case with the disc not even securely attached.

Absolutely. This is not "very good" in any way. I would say this is "acceptable"

My GTA5 just came like that so I checked the item description on the seller feedback page. Sure enough it said "Item not in the original case." So it was my fault for not reading the description in my haste.

Currently looking for at least one Wii U Pro Controller to pop up cheap. I wish some of the local Best Buys or Wal-Marts would sell some cheap like some stores are doing elsewhere. They are about $50 at all my local places unfortunately.

Did you read the description? It probably mentioned either repackaged or not in original case. Id say half of the ps4 games i bought came in bluray cases, which is even worse than this, because the artwork gets crumpled, as those cases are too small. I wouldnt complain, just read the description next time.

I'm pretty sure this should have been graded as acceptable. I don't think games with unoriginal packaging are supposed to get grades higher than acceptable. Per Amazon's definitions:

 

  • Very Good: A well-cared-for video game that has been played but remains in great condition. The game and its original packaging are complete and slightly worn, but unmarked and undamaged. Activation codes for bonus online content may be missing or expired. Product may not include downloadable content.

Yeah, I think I didn't read past the "DLC may not be included" part. I guess I'll won't ask for a refund since I'll probably be trading them in to Gamestop eventually.

 

But IDK, I'll see how Rivals is and email Amazon about it later this week.

I think it comes down to how often do you buy or plan on buying from AWD. If not that often, then absolutely contact them about it. If you plan on buying from AWD often, then maybe not. After hearing someone else on this thread getting banned for too many returns/price adjustments, I am more careful what I call about. That is just my opinon on the matter.

My sentimnets exactly. Pick and choose your battles. I understand that what we are buying is considered used so it comes with the territory. My ps3 COD:G came in the same way. It was complete so I just switched the case with a spare I had laying around.

 

To the op;

 

Ps4 cases aren't a plenty yet so you can use a bd or ps3 case temporarily (if you have spare one around).

Also of note, holiday time is the worse for the graders since last year we went through similar scenarios where packaging was like so and had other mix ups. Realistically, I expect some snafu and mixups but nothing too drastic (out of the norm).

I'm not sure where you got that definition, but this page says differently, though it doesn't specifically mention "video game" like your defintion. http://www.amazon.co...rd_i=1267877011

 

I can say I got a Very Good copy of AC4 that was in the same case as shown in the picture, though I wasn't keeping the game anyway, so it didn't matter. Like a couple others have said, Amazon will take note if they see you returning too many things, so choose wisely whether this is worth complaining about.

Yeah, the AWD definition would be the one to follow - especially because AWD is not considered part of amazon, but a third party seller.

If you're bitching about minor discrepancies like the size of the case your game came in, keep in mind this is NOT Amazon.com where you are buying new items. You are getting warehouse snafus and likely repackaged items due to smashed/broken cases & packaging at a pretty damn good discount.

 

Griping over something as little as this is absolutely ludicrous. If the game disc came bent or heavily scratched, that's one thing. Getting it in excellent condition with artwork in a DVD case instead of original PS4 case is completely different.

 

In other words: Quit yer bitchin'. :)

I think I have a problem--I already beat the vanilla version on :ps3: (got the platinum but didn't get the Catwoman/Nightwing/DLC trophies), picked up the GotY on :360: earlier this year, and still picked this up because I couldn't resist the price! :wall:
