The twitter guy's posts show that he makes multiple orders with 2 copies per order. Gamestop limits all games to either 2 or 3 copies per order. Not sure if your business license can circumvent that, but anyone can order 100 copies of a game if they split into multiple orders, business license or not.

Yeah the limit for normal buyers was canned with the website change. It used to be where if there was a limit, then you had to wait 30 days to order more.

Yes, you could do either. I can do that but the few times I need a lot of an item, I contact Gamestop corporate and request x amount. But yeah, anyone can do multiple orders. I still do if the timing is better to do so.

 

On another note, I got $150 in points but have no idea what to do with it. Probably going to use it to on my PS5 pre-order. Going to be a pain unless I can use multiple $50 certs in different transactions towards the pre-order.

I cannot recall who posted their email request for Elite membership refund, but thank you for doing so. 

 

I finally cashed out my points and sent the request.

 

As an aside, 7/31/19 is the last day to get a refund for your Elite membership.

That’s a pretty impressive result, this is from resolution enhancement software?  I didn’t think it worked that good.

All I did was remove the _d from the URL, which linked from the thumbnail to the original image.

 

Please don't believe CSI lol.

Guessing the warehouse retro never gets restocked... ? I have 2 GSs near me that have retro in glass cases, and I already raided them of stuff I wanted. 

 

Side note - where is a good place to buy replacement PlayStation double clear/black jewel cases? 

Cases wise I've found amazon ware house deals to be the best for getting them for old games that sells for pennies/1$ range  I picked up a few ps1 and ps2 titles just for the cases.  It was weird getting so many collectors editions of aerosmith guitar hero or whatever complete and sealed.

You must not watch CSI, NCIS, SVU, etc... They can work wonders from 2.0 MP flip phone pictures.

Ahhh, it was originally just showing a stretched thumbnail, I get it now, that makes sense.  Thanks.  I thought that seemed too good for anything I was aware of.  They are making huge improvements in this though, the ps1 FF games with AI image enhancement arn’t perfect but have come a long ways.  I’ve never watched CSI but I like NTSF:SD:SUV :)

But hey, a quick way to at least disspell any fears is to look at the Nintendo seal of quality, with a bright light.  Nintendo used foil, not ink for their seal .. so if you tilt around the seal you should see it turn from gold / yellow / BLACK, at different angles.  A Fake Box will be gold at all angles, unless it's, again, a 3rd party, unlicensed, or late release.  I miss NintendoAge.

The Nintendo Age community is still alive, it's now at https://www.videogamesage.com/

Opportunity now to save 50% on $29.99 and under preowned games if you spend $100+, so you can actually trigger the savings with four games if they average $25 each.

GS sells retro games in store? O.o That's a new one for me. Would like to go to one just to check it out. Then again, I never step foot inside a GS other than to do returns  :lol:

 

My hang up is that even once I receive it, I’d have no way to know if it was fake really, the box and materials.  There are even repro carts and discs out there too, so even if it worked in the system, that may not mean much for its authenticity.  The few trade shows I have been to, I enjoyed them for what they were, and don’t mean this as a personal insult to anyone, but wouldn’t be surprised if the majority of vendors were unknowingly, knowingly or actively involved in selling fakes.  Just that thought is enough to mostly keep me from buying, I get the impression the market is already flooded with fakes, even though that’s not based in much reality or hands on experience.  Just common sense, if there is money to be made in it and fraud is easy, it’s going to happen, and probably already has been for 10 years plus at this point...Or maybe that’s just my justification to avoid paying the inflated prices.

They are pretty easy to tell tbh... fakes are still pretty bad even in 2020. Some common techniques have been posted but all else fails, you can google image search for authentic carts/boxes/etc. There are high quality images for pretty much anything that has value. Fake carts are rampant but if you open them up their circuit board will look like a joke.

Dagummit, I JUST bought some games with the 40% discount.  Ah, well.

Bought the rest of the 3ds games that were in stock that I was missing from my collection. Figured this sale is better than B1G1 since you'd basically be saving half off if you purchased 2 games that were the same price. It's a long shot but imagine if some came complete. Lol. Surprised alot of the 3ds games are gone such as Mario and Luigi Bowser's Inside Story

It was in stock when I just checked a moment ago.  I passed since I already have the ds or whatever one which they humorously sent in the 3ds versions box. 

 

My haul was 

poke park 14.99

pikmin 14.99

mario and luigi paper jam 14.99

cart filler pokemon sun 8.99

cart filler pokemon moon 8.99

If you have any games that you’ve been wanting to get that are actually in stock now is as good as any time to get them.

The 50% off 29.99 or less would be great if they actually had what I wanted in stock for ds/gba. And this certainly feels like liquidation before they close all of their non profitable stores,

If the games are still in stock, you shouldn’t have much trouble buying a second set and returning the first.

Not worth it. It's only a $3 difference at most and if your order gets even a few games shipped from the warehouse the difference essentially gets wiped out. Also not worth the gas.

Well, everyone is different. That could be 4 (or more) x $29.99 games which would be $12, which means adding another normally-priced $25 game for free. And who knows if GameStop is on the way to his work, or if he was going to go there for another reason or something. So it’s at least a consideration.
