Copy 1 of 3, Ncaa football 14, disc looked good and got resurfaced. Disc isnt even spinning. Froze on me one time in the menu and stopped working all together after that

Seems that's the case now with "rare" (by GS standards) games. Sounds like the non-working ones are just being re-circulated in an attempt for them to stick somewhere other than the company. I managed to snag a few OG Xbox games recently from the website that showed 1 left from the warehouse and while they haven't horrible condition wise, I'm worried they wont work, as it seems unlikely a working copy just popped up out of nowhere.

If any of you want a laugh, check out the Manhunt listing for OG Xbox and look at the picture they used. I saw it was in stock a few days ago with 1 left, so I won't be surprised if I get the copy they showed on the image.

Just got my orders from the beginning of July that were shipped via USPS. Don't lose hope!

To those mad  about USPS delays and weirdness here is a reason or the reason it's going to get worse: https://apnews.com/5...5f8ba85517f9bfd

 

Mail deliveries could be delayed by a day or more under cost-cutting efforts being imposed by the new postmaster general. The plan eliminates overtime for hundreds of thousands of postal workers and says employees must adopt a “different mindset” to ensure the Postal Service’s survival during the coronavirus pandemic.

Late trips will no longer be authorized. If postal distribution centers are running late, “they will keep the mail for the next day,″ Postal Service leaders say in a document obtained by The Associated Press. “One aspect of these changes that may be difficult for employees is that — temporarily — we may see mail left behind or mail on the workroom floor or docks,″ another document says.

The changes come a month after Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, a major donor to President Donald Trump, took over the sprawling mail service. In a memo titled “PMG Expectations and Plan,″ the agency said the changes are aimed at “making the USPS fundamentally solvent which we are not at this time.″

It's more of a political jab.  The USPS has been losing money for years.  Bringing up politics by this author, just helps validate their sorry existence.  If your career is going to shit, just drum up the audience with shitposts about things others might agree with.

 

It really has little to do with USPS, other than budget cuts are hurting "everyone", including USPS.  And more to do with the unfortunate state of the economy.  Any budget for USPS is fading.

 

I'm not a fan of political jabs.  State the facts, nothing more.  If "it" cut down Obama or the Clintons, I'd still make this post.  It's uninventive, and boring.  The author is looking for a hit, when people are already exhausted.  Zzzz....

 

Personally, I've had no problems with either USPS or UPS.  Innovations is the worst, perhaps we all agree?

There are quite a few games, specifically retro, that are showing up as in stock when you click on their page but not when you sort by available just in case any of you want to be idiots like me by continuously playing the GS lotto.

Thanks for the heads up. Was able to get the last copies of .hack quarantine part 4 for $60 (after 40% with new game purchase). Seems they go loose for $170 on eBay. Paid the $3 for one year warranty because I assume they come refurbished/damaged.

What's the point of paying the warranty if they're the last copies if you dont mind me asking? Just in case I'm missing something. If they dont work would you even be able to get a replacement?

Just noticed my disc only copy of ‘Ghost Hunter’ on ps2 has some gummy/adhesive looking gunk on the disc art. My finger barely rubbed it and it rubbed off a part of the disc art! Haven’t gotten to test it yet, any idea if it affects playability?

Done playing the GS retro lottery, had a good run though. Good luck to anyone else still doing it

can you take a photo of the gash, trying to ascertain if they're putting returned defectives back into rotation

Looks like there's a small chip/scratch at the bottom by your thumb as well.

I guess I assumed if they didn't have any replacements (online as well) that I would be refunded, but that was probably a stupid assumption. If that doesn't turn out to be the case I believe I have 30 days to get a refund on the $3 warranty, even if I don't, it's $3.

GameStop will refund you regardless, I returned $415 worth of NCAA 14 and got a refund on the spot

Was it a normal return (within 7 days) or did you use the paid warranty?

They've refunded me everytime I've tried within 30 days. It might even be longer for retro because they literally cant exchange it

30 days won't get questioned at this point, they aren't shipping in any reasonable time any more, I returned like two weeks after delivery

It's quite ridiculous.  I had 3 Xbox games that were "shipped" on June 20th.  They're supposed to be delivered today

Is it actually being delivered? Like the tracking shows it was picked up? I've been waiting on one from July 3... I already have 1 open issue with them, I do not want to deal with another issue. Their CS is just fucking god awful.

(I know inventory is still very screwed up) but it does allow you to do BOPIS for those stores with the 2+ copies or whatever the glitch is. If you can match around which stores have what you can definitely take advantage of some cheap games, though most of them will be generic and ones you've already played, it's good for getting backup copies

My order actually just showed up out of the blue... wasn't even in my USPS informed delivery email. There's also two diff tracking numbers on here for whatever reason. Oh well, guess I should be happy I got my item.

Are GameStop's DOTD online only? Or could I go in search for a possible 6 for $10?

 

Recently surprised when I went to pick up an online order at my GameStop, they had some cheap PS3 games that didn't show available on their site, Kinda leaning to jumping on that deal in-store as the online section is mostly showing nothing in stock.

Really? A quick check of their site will clearly show it says they're 'online only'

Dotd can be bought online and picked up instore...if the stock count was accurate.

The problem is, most show oos for me for store pickup.
