Have you bought :ps4: Until Dawn yet? You should, best game of the year so far. It's so good that Amazon is sold out for 3 to 5 weeks.

At this point I'm convinced that Mad Max is not a game for me and I'm thinking of returning my unopened copy to Best Buy (which should be delivered to my house today). I paid for the game with about an even split of store credit and my credit card. Will BB just refund the CC and give me a new gift card with store credit? Also, what happens to your $10 pre-order bonus if you return an unopened game?

You won't get the preorder bonus because you're returning the game.

I listen to my local gamestop employees. I've found they have my best interests in mind. Good thing I preorderd 2 copies of Haze.

I am high on Nectar 24/7

That's why I always get the protection plan on my PS4 blu ray disk games.  They say they are gonna scratch and that it happens all the time, thanks gamestop!!

Just a heads up, the Mad Max game/blu-ray deal pulls the $10 off the game, not the blu-ray. So really, for GCU members, you're saving $7.99 and not $10 ... kind of sucks but I guess that's life. Also ruins any future game PMs if it goes on sale for $39.99 in the next few weeks.

 

I'm half debating returning everything and waiting until BF ... but I'm unsure right now.

You know, now that I think of it, I'll just wait and see if it goes on sale within my return period.

Well I decide to call BB customer services, lol. Since my BB hasn't open yet
Rep claimed that the never send ready to pick up in the morning you have to wait until the store opens so the can receive the order. Sucks since I want to pick up Mad Max Steelbook and MGSV isn't ready yet. I don't want to do two trips today yet if I don't get their early chances are I'm not gonna get the steel book :(


I got my email at 2:47pm today, latest I ever got it

Keep it. Trade it in for 40% extra trade credit. You'll still get your $10 RZ cert too.

Anyone know if the "picked it up day one and didn't preorder, but still got the points anyways" process still works? Last minute change of heart.

Try it and see? 

 

I dont think it does work though,



First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

40%?  30% bonus + 10% GCU?  Or are they bumping the TIV bonus next week?

Gah, did they do a return/rebuy and apply the $10 off first and then the GCU?

Problem is that there's no guarantee I'll be able to trade it in while there's still a 30% bonus. Right now the game doesn't have a trade-in value online, which means it can't be traded in in-store. I've noticed that BB has been taking longer to provide trade-in values for some newer games. Normally I'd wait, but I'm in a bit of a time crunch now since I'm about to lose a lot of free time for gaming.

yeah i agree that doesn't seem right. CGU members are supposed to save 20% off what regular customers pay. so the $10 off should have applied before the 20% is calculated.

The $ dollar off promotions always screw up GCU.  They had a buy 2 games get $40 off or something a month ago.  But they applied the dollar amount off before GCU so it wasn't as good of a deal as what it should have been.

I pre-ordered my copy in store, so he just added the blu-ray while ringing up the game pickup. I noticed that it knocked the game down to $39.99 though, which bummed me out because I really wanted it to be $47.99 and $9.99 for the movie.

 

I have a feeling Mad Max will be $20 on BF ... so I'm going to wait and see if the trade-in value pops up before Saturday and if it doesn't, I'll probably return the bundle unless I can get a good turn around on trading the game.

Ahh so they did just take the $10 off first then the GCU.  Well the difference is just $1.99, so hopefully the TIV is at least close to $40.  But yeah I'm in the same boat as you.  I really want to movie now so I can rewatch it but I plan on waiting for the game to hit $20 before I buy it.

I'd be totally in for the steelbook except I want the 3D version of the film since I only saw the 2D version in the theaters.

So does the Mad Max game suck?

I'm having second thoughts about picking it up. I might just get a refund for my pre-order when I go return the MGS V CE

Based on the hour I've played so far it's not terrible, but it's not great, either. Basically, if you love the Ubisoft openworld formula, you'll probably like Mad Max. Definitely a game where it looks like they just copied and pasted things that worked well in other games, but they did absolutely nothing to really give the game a unique feel. It plays decent, though, and it seems like it might be worth playing for a few hours just to see the enviroments and upgrade the car.

If that is the case, shouldn't the game show as $42 - not $44. I'm GCU - and confused by this promo.  :-k

My pre-ordered copy of MGS still hasn't shipped, and I'm Elite. Ridiculous. What has happened to BB's shipping? I got games on release day, every time, last year when I wasn't an Elite member.
