I work for Amazon (for one more week) and quality control on EVERYTHING is fucking terrible. They don't really care much about the quality of your work. They do a little bit, but quantity and being quick is 95% of the importance. No one does their job correctly (as in quality) and they don't get held accountable. If I get something to package that's damaged, I can either take extra time to mark that item as damaged, or I can just put it in the box and ship it like that to keep my rate up. I get negatively affected if I take the time to do something right (slower rate). If the customer complains about getting a damaged or poorly packed item, nothing happens to us.

I guess on the bright side, when I've had problems, their usually quick to just give me my money back and let me keep the item. But still, quality control sucks.

 

 That's pretty much every job I've had, not one care for the costumer, just fake 'costumer service'. I would do the same thing as you, just ship whatever out and someone else can deal with the mess later. But I would think that there would be more checking for returns than there is. I mean I can go buy a Switch and return PopTarts and Amazon wouldn't know a damn thing. :lol:

It also goes into the government and corporate propaganda of the news. Let's make it look like a second Amazon HQ will be an amazing thing for one of the 20 cities left, when they will be complete shit.

A cart game listed as very good - item may come repackaged means its loose right?

Nope. Every single package is linked back to you. You can be fired for that. And quality is the easiest thing to get fired for.

Technically anything good and above comes with the case and only (A) would be cart only.  But really these days there's no way to relably predict anymore.

I'll give it a shot. I recently bought Grandia III (A) with Downloadable content (DLC) or codes for online play may require additional purchase. Large cosmetic damage on cover art and figured since it didn't have the usual comment of missing something it might be CIB. It came in disc only. If this game comes in cart only I'll return both.

The condition doesn't guarantee the completeness of the game. Look specifically for the description (seller note) to say, "includes manual, cover art, and packaging." It seems unlikely but you can occasionally find cartridge games complete. I picked up Ecco Tides of Time for the Sega Genesis this way.

Seems like a total crapshoot. I recently bought a copy of Super Mario Land 2 from AWD that was listed as Like New and “factory sealed.” What I got was a loose cartridge sealed in a bag.

Yeah for older cartridge games it's definitely more miss than hit. Take 'factory sealed' with a grain of salt.

How do you know the bag wasn't sealed at a factory?  :-
