Perfectly timed Wipeout price drop for me. Picked that up along with Gravity Rush 2,The Last Guardian, Nioh, and Horizon: Zero Dawn Complete.

Are you seriously asking that question, or are you just nitpicking at Gamestop's policies? 

It is mildly astounding that he seems to be encountering this for the first time, but reacting to this BS deserves better than "nitpicking". This policy is borderline fraudulent and objectively abhorrent, now or 15 years ago.

Okay, maybe nitpicking was the wrong word to use. Just found it weird that he was complaining about the policy given its long history. Figured most people just shrug at the whole situation at this point... at least I do. I can vehemently disagree with the policy, and still understand why they do it in the first place. Plus no one forces anyone to buy the open games at new prices.

I really want to buy Nioh, but I am still holding hope for a "Complete Edition" to be released.

I ended up buying Nioh for $16 and the season pass for $12.50, so a somewhat decent price for a split physical/digital "complete" edition. At the very least, you can pick up Nioh now and return before the return period ends if there isn't another flash sale on the Season Pass.

So slightly off topic, but today's BBY DOTD is for the Nomad vehicle that came with CE(s) of Mass Effect Andromeda.

Didn't want to make a separate thread for this since most people would not consider this a deal, but wanted to bring it up just in case.

I was in the same boat, but I ended up biting on the R3 complete edition. It has Chinese and English subs.

Physical complete edition isn't happening in the US, just like Bloodborne. Both are 3rd party games published by Sony in the US.

Already out in Asian.  Your only choice is to import Asian English version.

Wow Nioh for $16. Talk about value. That game was so much fun. Spent 100+ hours and there was still much to play. 

 

Edit: By the time you finish the base game, the GOTY edition will be long out. For $16 base game is a steal.

FYI: I was at GameStop yesterday and they had Gravity Rush 2 brand new for $20. Might want to check with them.

There's a very low chance that Best Buy will have Gravity Rush 2 back in stock. Just get one from Gamestop as it's better to have the game now than later since GameStop might run out as well. Be sure to ask the Gamestop employee if they have a sealed copy otherwise a gutted copy is okay. If the game case is bad, just get another cheap game that has a good case and switch them and return the other game. Battleborn is pretty cheap right now.

best buy claims the price tag is a price drop, so it seems that way.

 

 

also of the 3 gamestops in my state with GR2, all of them had only the display copy left. weird coincidence.

None of the best buys around me had this in stock. Ended up going to 2 different gamestops and both only had display copies. My brother was willing to take a display copy but when he opened them up one had the little booklet completely thrashed and the at the other gamestop the disc had scratches! Hw finally decided to order one from Gamestops site Nd when it arrived today....IT WAS A DISPLAY COPY!!! Worse of all the artwork had several tears!

Haha Whatever it is. Not sure if it was a booklet or not i just know my brother was pissed when he checked out the game in the car. He showed me the paper insert and immediately walked back inside the store and returned it.

And no im not new. I fully expect all of this from gamestop which is why i refuse to buy any of their "display copies." Only reason we even went on this damn hunt for this game is cause my brother really wanted it.

Picked up Nioh, was going to wait but figured the price wouldn't get too much lower.

 

 

Is it just the Best Buy's around here or are they all unorganized? Games were not in alphabetical order and most of them were mislabeled. Had to have someone help me find it, they ended up having it in the back.

Noticed Fry's also has Gravity Rush 2 at $19.99, was able to pick one up rather than driving to an obscure GameStop. Also grabbed a mis-priced Life Is Strange Before the Storm LE for $19.99!

All this hassle when you could've bought the game on Amazon for an extra $4 the entire time.

Another way to think about it is anything that requires 100+ hours of your life should be paying you.

My "new" copy from GameStop came complete with spine damage and a crumpled insert smfh. Still the best deal since no BB have this in store anymore.

Mine came like that too, crumpled at the top and the employee took off the new sticker price tag and said he did a great job. Plus he added the warranty for 2 dollars more but whatever. At least I got the game. I replaced the game case for a different one too as the case had leftover residue from a sticker. Best Buy and Amazon are the two places if you sealed or new unopened games.

Dude added the warranty without asking?  I would have returned the game on the spot and demanded a refund for everything then hit him up with a horrible survey.  Either that or snap the game in half in front of him and ask for a replacement.
