I got my Fallout 76 Steelbook in the mail. Pretty much wrecked in a bubble mailer. The backside is falling off.

I bought it w/o buying the game (yet). I should be able to exchange it yeah?

 

Got the BFV steel in a box mailer. All mint and its pretty nice looking. Nice gloss

Should be no problem. Stores got a bunch.

With all the fiasco of servers going live early yesterday, my BB refused to budge when told that street had already been broken and GS was selling it. Ended up getting to play 9 hours early thanks to GS and BB lost a sale for their stubbornness. We even walked in there to ask if they still wouldn't budge on releasing it early, showing our purchased copies because we'd rather get the $12 off from GCU. They said nothing they could do and we walked out. Soon as GCU is up, I'm done with them.

That's weird. I received an email about a week ago that Best Buy was going to sell Fallout 76 at 8pm on 11/13. I called my store and asked if they were participating and if I could pick up my pre-ordered power armor edition then. They said yes to both and I was able to pick it up with no problem last night.

My power armor edition came in today. It's pretty neat. FYI if you're on the fence about keeping it, just open the bottom of the box and don't cut the circle tape. You can slide eveything out from the bottom cause it's a simple cardboard tab holding everything in. If you don't like it just put it back in the box and return it.

GameStop breaking the street date by a few hours is irrelevant considering Best Buys POS wouldn't let them sell it to you no matter how much they want to keep your business. :shame:

Understood, and that was the reason they gave which is a corporate issue. My expectation was to at least try to raise higher-ups at BB to see if anything could be done, because that's how things were handled when I worked at EB whenever street was broken. At the very least, the feedback of two lost sales should send a clear message that their current system isn't flexible enough to handle situations such as this.

God forbid people doing their jobs didn't want to break the rules to cater specifically to you because you're the one customer they can't afford to lose.  The level of entitlement is astounding. 

When the people paying their salary stop coming to the store, they will lose their jobs. ;)

For me, that's an easy pass at that price, even with GCU.  It doesn't look like you are getting much at all for the money.

The entitlement is strong with this one.

That's correct, the issue was GS told their stores to sell it at open, a full 10 hours before that time because servers were already up and live.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, doesn't make you any more right or wrong than me.

That's not correct.  Everyone may be entitled to their opinion, but you came here looking for some kind of validation of what you perceived to be a grave injustice and what most of us recognize is you were being unreasonable.  So, the consensus would be that your opinion is irrational and is in fact "wrong".

God of War CE was only half the price of this to began with.

Yeah, the price is kinda absurd. Wish they just did a steelbook edition for like $75.

Overpriced diorama. Megahouse only produces plastic figures. Granted, a big resin diorama could cost over $500 by itself.

Just return it. It's still in stock at Best Buy for free shipping. Shipping 10 lbs will end up being more than if they just bought it from Best Buy.

You might want to double check your order, when I cancelled my order for the Power Armor edition the steelbook changed from free to $10 in my order status page. I had to cancel it separately.

 

Somewhat related- does anyone know if you preorder a game with a free steelbook and return the game, do they require you to return the steelbook as well? Or will they just deduct the value of the steelbook from the return value?

Succinctly put; that about sums it up.  

 

This deal business is toxic as it is -- with resellers and people with a sense of entitlement.  Glad to see more of some sense, decency, and decorum.

Actually, no one is entitled to an opinion. Everyone can "have" an opinion, since there's nothing to stop you from doing so, but you're not entitled to one. The only thing anyone is entitled to is provable facts.

Best buy suddenly restocked the Pokemon Switch bundles, they are available to ship as well as showing available at most stores around me. I really thought these were going to be pretty rare given how long they have been sold out for!

If anyone was wanting to grab one though now is your chance!

My store usually gets 30+ of new Switch bundles but we only got 7 of the Pokemon one. They probably just didn't want to take more orders than they could fulfill but it does seem like it will be rare.

This has to be the most needlessly nit-picky and contrarian post I've seen on the internet in a while. Lmao

Anyone have issues with their Battlefield V steelbook?  I swapped it once already, but both that I got had a cut down the spine from when the box was opened lol.  Looks like shit.
