I saw Best Buy is doing a steelbook with preorders for Monster Hunter World, is that Best Buy only or does anyone know if Gamestop is doing that too?  If not, I may see if I can quickly switch mine over.

Steelbook is bestbuy exclusive.

Well, if I can still get in on that Best Buy goodness...I think I missed out on the Dissidia NT steelbook deal at GS

Is "New" in quotation marks as a tongue-in-cheek reference to how lots of Gamestop's shit is marked "new" but not factory sealed and usually gutted?

 

Gamestop sucks.

I think Bestbuy has some kind of steelbook agreement cause a good amount of their preorders tend to come with a steebook.

Doesn't the ad normally announce when a prestige day is coming?

Wondering how long till someone pointed that out.

And I don’t think GameStop sucks. I don’t really see the need for a factory sealed copy most of the time. If the game looks perfect and the codes work i see nothing wrong. Granted I never got a opened new game when I ordered online. Pre owned from online is just a mixed bag of who knows.

I think the GS hate train is mostly hating them because it’s cool to do so. Oh and shady policies that change before end dates. And not refunding credit when orders are canceled. And CS that takes forever. And forcing employees to hard sell pre orders to a point that they add them on without telling you. And not training their employees well (granted some are great).

Sometimes. Or maybe the ad will advertise a pro day.

Sometimes there's a separate flyer. But they may not even put it out until the day before.

My issue with it is if it is a gift.  I don't want to give someone an opened copy of anything as a gift.  The other issue is they frequently forget to reseal it with a special sticker.  So if you decide to return it later it isn't an unopened copy.  

 

I don't buy very many games as gifts anymore but when/if I do I want it sealed.  

 

Just a stupid business practice IMO.  No one else who sells games needs to do this.

This is my rant. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

I kind of agree with you when it comes to not needing a sealed game but I really hate the new stickers they've been using to seal gutted games, it's almost impossible to get the residue off the case. Now, them selling opened collectibles as new is ridiculous. Several of the figures I bought were opened and I've only recently noticed things were missing. If it weren't for the great deals I got and the fact I used trade credit to buy them, I'd probably try to do something about it.
