DisGonnaBeGood

If it's the last copy in stock then they'll send a gutted copy that is opened. If they have sealed copies then they'll send that. It's still worth keeping if it's opened just to play it like the rest of the games in the series, although when I ordered it used for PS4 they sent the Switch version instead...


Thanks for the heads up. Haven't bought anything in quite awhile, but sounds like GS has gone even more downhill in regards to whether new games come sealed and used games come complete since I last bought stuff.

That's not correct. It should always expire at the end of the month.

That makes sense and sounds more palatable. I guess the 2 weeks coincided with my renewal date of 6/17  :wall:

I know it's probably a total crapshoot like always, but those of you who ordered Trails of Cold Steel IV on PS4 did it come brand new shrink wrapped? It's not worth keeping if it's not sealed, and I'll just be returning it.


I ordered it last week and sadly it was a gutted copy which seems to be the norm now. It came with everything but the annoying sticker they put to seal it leaves residue on the case. Copy I bought earlier this year was sealed

Do the online rewards coupons not work on figures and model kits?

I redeemed a $15 one and tried to use it on a Gundam model kit that was part of this sale just now and it wouldn't apply.

I'm pretty sure the online certs don't work on anything on sale, sometimes they don't work on anything at all. But if it's not working customer service will refund you the points.

Well my order of Catherine DOTD for $15 arrived gutted without any circular sticker outside for Switch. The cartridge also wasn't sealed and contact points look slightly scratched is this normal for new Switch cartridges?

I'm a new Switch owner, so thought I'd ask. Holy fkin hell GS, all my previous DOTD orders have arrived gutted NEW. First 13 sentinels $25, Nocturne Remaster $30 and now Catherine...

ALWAYS order 2 copies of whatever niche "new" game you want. The chances of them splitting them are insanely low, so your order will always get sent to the warehouse or will get bounced to a store with 2 copies left (1 sealed, 1 gutted) and just return the second copy. It's as easy as that. Helps get to $35 for free shipping as well.

But I'd hold onto it, order it when it comes back into stock, and return the one you got regardless. No idea what a sealed cartridge is but the "scratches" you mention are likely the white production ones you see aligned on every single cartridge, so no problem there if you don't want to return.

Yeah, I actually ordered 2 copies of the Catherine DOTD and used game to get free shipping. This particular copy that arrived gutted wasn't SEALED outside the case with a circular tape. Now I bet they are going go give me a hard time returning it...

 

The local store had a factory SEALED Nocturne, so I had no trouble swapping that one out...

I disagree from my experience. Even when ordering two copies of niche games (NIS, Atlus, Koei, etc.), the shipments get split up all the time. I ordered 2 copies of trails as well two days ago, and those were split. And when I bought a ton of copies of fallen legion, it was always two at a time, and 90% were shipped 1 at a time from two different stores. I agree you might as well order two and you'll likely have better odds, but to say odds are "insanely low", I think is misleading. I think it doesn't help that since these are niche games, stores probably get like two copies max of these thing.

Good news is online returns makes things so much better now. A lot of stores won't let you return open games even with receipt, even though they know their practices.

I tried getting Observer System Redux Day One Edition. PlayAsia said it would release in July in the US and UK but nobody, not even GameStop have it. Does anybody know why?

Maybe the deal of the day is done with.  Maybe the deal was the friends we made along the way.

They must be running out of copies of Wreckfest, Bleeding Edge, and Ori to put out.

They have gotten so much worse with selling open as new since COVID.  Unless it’s a very new release, chances are like 70%+ that your new game is not coming new and may or may not have the sticky seal to ruin the case.  It used to only be occasional.  I just received two “new” copies of deadly premonition 2 in the same package, I think from a store.  Both open and just one with sticky seal.  Both look like they have done the rounds through a few goodwills and thrift shops already.

My July $5 monthly reward certificate is not working with Digital purchases on gamestop.com today. Tried on $10 eshop and $10 Xbox Gift Card. Worked fine at end of June. Anyone else?

 

Happen to know if this is temporary or permanent?

Madden preorder bonus did not work for me today. Store manager/leader had to override it and he didnt do the greatest job on rounding the percentages into dollars...ugh. oh well...i still came out well. 

 

Does anyone know if you cancel a preorder and reorder it on a different system (xbox one to ps4) would you get the bonus if you were doing a trade in as well?

So first DotD disappears and now the in-store pickup option is gone? Hopefully it's just a glitch as far as in-store pickup is concerned.

I have Madden 22 and BF2042 pre-ordered at my home store. Probably going to cancel both and buy a game or some PS or Xbox space bucks. I really don't feel like trading games right now. Plus I want to actually play them before trading them. /rant

Regarding store pickup being removed - I called it yesterday with them wanting to get away from in store transactions as much as possible unless it's for trade ins, pre-orders, warranties, etc. They don't want you to come in to buy a random game anymore. They would rather just do that type of business via online fulfillment. Chewy wasn't about better customer service, it's about turning GS into as much of an online only store as possible other than things they haven't figured out how to do without a retail store yet (trade ins and the other things I mentioned).

Sometimes it's not a matter of it being a glitch as much as them testing something out such as the -1 store pickup option which they went back and forth on before removing it entirely. Their decisions are usually intentional, even if they're not completely sure about them yet. Also, please play your games before trading them. It's not a contest about who flips the most or has the most store credit, it's about enjoying your games.
