Huh, no shit. Almost like the Deals of the Day have never worked in store and have always been online only


Hm I thought it would at least say “online only” deal. Instead of just deal of the day, people would assume it works online and instore. I’m guessing you can’t use discounts on it either like a 5 off coupon?

Man, I thought I was the only one. I finished the first, and have the third sitting ready to go....just need to find the second!


Bro I casually picked up 1-4 and I never knew these games were rare

Not rare more out of print and people are likely hoarding copies inflating the prices on the second hand market. There's already 3 versions of the first 2 games between ps3 vita and ps4 on the physical side. 2 each for 3 and 4 since they released on the ps4 and switch. 

They are doing smaller prints than they used to but other than that it's not as if these games were going immediately out of stock.  Took about a year for the copies to dry up.

 

I'd assume they plan on doing switch ports of 1 and 2 eventually as well since 3 and 4 are on there.

Yeah, me too.  Guess I lucked out on those ones.  I got cold steel 2 for $20 preowned during their year of 50% off sales.  Cold steel 1 for about the same from an Amazon warehouse 20% off deal.  One of the few times a like new used item actually came close to that.  I had to peel off some warehouse stickers, but they didn’t leave much residue.  Cold steel 3 was $30 or less for a long time, and Cold steel 4 is $40 right now at gamestop.  Used some coupons on it.  Was waiting on 4 since I haven’t started any of them yet, but reading what happened to the other’s prices, I think that’s good enough, they sound like ones I want to play eventually.  Buying 4 games into a series i’ve never even played though (not to mention I’d need to get through like 3 trails in the sky games first as well if I want the full story!?), look what these stupid limited print runs are making us do.  They are going to be up to like CS 7 or 8 by the time I start the first and I’m going to keep buying them all...

cold steel is over with the 4th entry. Though they could have easily dragged out the arc for another 3-4 games by using the crossbell assets they made and going with events taking place back and forth between there and the capital, western stuff, class b side trips and whatever else.

Didn't the Gamestop website use to take paypal? I had a PS5 bundle in my cart and wanted to use paypal credit for the 6 months no interest.

It takes paypal.  Probably just doesn't have the option for that purchase?

Hmm, I was on chrome then the app and didn't see the option anywhere. Maybe shadow is right about certain purchases.

The limited run switch games discussion made me look up some games and noticed they just raised the prices overnight $5 on a few things like disgaea 1, 4, and 5

Seems like Gamestop is actually working to fulfill back-orders - a game I ordered in a 50% off sale on June 10th, 2020 was finally delivered!

The game had been stuck in 'Awaiting Availability' status since I ordered it so I assumed it would eventually get cancelled (especially considering the PS4 version of the game hasn't been listed on Gamestop's website for months) but I got a shipping notification last Saturday and it just showed up today - complete with its original case and an unused soundtrack voucher! :D

Wow that’s persistence. I also had ‘Will: A Wonderful World’ stuck in that status since June but called to cancel it eventually, guess there is hope

They could've raised it to $55 same as the big aaa titles and it would still sell out. Prices for just the cart are still selling for around $80 secondhand.

170 or so price changes, and few trade value changes.

In the last few months, I have had 4-5 orders where they say it shipped but it never gets picked up by the carrier.  I believe it's happened for USPS, Fed Ex, and UPS so it's not tied to a specific carrier.  Each time I have to contact them and they send another one.  Any idea why this happens so much?  I could understand a mistake and it happening once or twice but 4-5 times in the last few months tells me its a chronic problem.  How in the world could so many packages go missing?

from my understanding when you place an order online it doesnt show up immediately at the store that is supposed to fulfil it.
theres potential for someone to buy it before you in person and then the store would have a label and no game to ship.

shipping carriers are all overloaded in my area as well
had a ups truck at my job that was completely full even in the middle just stacked with packages
dude couldnt get to most of it, they wont split his route either

Same thing has happened to me. Ordered 6 games on May 1 and I'm still waiting on 2 of them to arrive. I'll be contacting them again today to either get them shipped finally or get a refund.

I'm just curious, why are you being so rude to him? He obviously didn't know that. But yes, Deals of the Day are online only but you didn't need to viciously attack him over a misunderstanding.

lmao at viciously attack

Yup, I randomly just check my wishlist. Not sure about anyone else, though.

I'm pretty sure I remember seeing someone post about this a few weeks ago but since it didn't affect me I spaced it out; Did they get rid of adding anything new to the wishlist? I don't see anything on the web about it, but haven't tried on the app.


Huh, no shit. Almost like the wishlist has been gone for months now.

Cool, thanks for the info! Weird how some people are still able to use it then


They took the ability to add new stuff to it away, but if you already had one before that you should still be able to access it.

Pro-tip. Once you buy something on your wishlist - you can move it back and forth from your HAVE/HAD list back onto your wishlist. Lame, just like me.

As others are saying, and have said before, wishlist has been funky for months.  If you have a wishlist, you can still view it and move things from had/have, but you can’t add new items to your wishlist anymore.  I think since Jan/Feb.  Pretty apt response.  Someone doesn’t know the specifics of how deal of the day works, or the specifics of how wishlist works, same basic mistake and same shit post reply.  No need to jump on someone just cause they don’t know all the weird specifics of how GameStop works, I think is the point some are trying to get across.
