Does a PS4 not come with one-year manufacturer warranty like most electronics?


Yeas that is why locations push extended warranties, it’s almost 100% profit. The chances of something breaking in the first two years are low, and with revisions of consoles he will probably trade it in anyway. Appliances, cars, home warranties etc companies push them because they make a lot of money.

Unless I missed it looks like there is no 30% off bag for collectibles on Black Friday. That sucks, it was great last year since it stacked with the buy 1 get 50% off blind bags deal.

It's in the Pre-Black Friday flyer at the bottom of each page: https://www.gamestop...PreBF_Flyer.pdf

 

Good through 11/21, so may not be there on Black Friday.

 

EDIT: it looks like most collectible items are just 25-30% off without buying a bag on Black Friday.

Gamestop's either embarrassed that they have nothing different than anyone else, OR they have a huge surprise that maybe they can't share yet because it'll hurt sales of a just-released game (Fallout '76 for $40?).

It's kinda douchey to quote myself but I wonder if this was legitimately the reason the ad was delayed so long.  Has any other major release been advertised at 33% off MSRP 5 just 5 days after release?

Looking for used. I'm also looking for a deal. I really dont want to pay $350 on a brand new PS3.


I could be talked into selling one of my PS3. I have a slim and a backwards compatible.

The $40 sale on Fallout 76 was pulled when the official ad came out on the website. It still could be in paper flyers, but as far as we know, it wont be on sale.

I'm that dude who posted some pages back, noting that GameStop wouldn't accept my PS4 due to creaky plastic. UPDATE: As WickedCyclone suggested, I simply took it to another store, and successfully traded it in for full value.  :applause: I guess the lesson learned here is... if GS wants to dent your trade-in value for a nonsensical reason, just say no, and try a different location. New guy was very cool about things, not even acknowledging the slight noise the plastic made.

 

To anyone reading who still wants to trade-in the 500 GB PS4 Slim: you can get $175 credit for it. That's what they gave me. If you're doing this for the Spider-Man bundle and they're sold out, be sure to ask the associate to check GameStops within a radius for you, and let you know which location you can get one at. That's what he did for me.

Bummer. I really hope I dont get this treatment later today... did your TIV get cut from 175?

Yup, they were gonna cut it down to $130.

 

Is your PS4 relatively new? It does generate a lot of heat, so the plastic will expand and contract until it's "broken in". My PS3 used to do that for a year, so I wouldn't be surprised if that's a common thing for PS4 as well.

Nah, I'd had the system two years. As far back as I can remember, it's always done that. I keep everything as clean and orderly as possible, and have never knocked it over or anything, so I guess it just happens to some folks, depending on the climate and such.

That's what it seems like. According to the old ad (the one that leaked), they were giving away b2g1 coupons if you purchase anything during the black friday sale. However, they removed it on the new ad that is currently on the website.

Just had a new guy at my home store try to sneak in a warranty on my Pokémon purchase and trade in. I asked him what the warranty is about and he said it applies it automatically. Strike one for him.

If someone pulled that on me, I'd ask for their store leader immediately. That is BS.

The GS website only displays up to page 12. But if you download and view the PDF file it's on pages 16 and 17 at the bottom.

It is being reported on many sites that it will be on sale.  That  piece of trash should be, and I fully expect some retailers to put it on sale for 19.99 to 24.99 by the end of the year.  Even then, probably not worth the money.

They added the missing pages. All is right now, game is on sale again for 39.99 for consoles.

I might bring it up with one of the managers I’m friendly with, but it did make me mad. The sad thing is it probably works 90% of the time. I’ve never had them not ask before putting it on though. Just gotta make sure you keep an eye on what employees are doing.

It must suck. Have you seen the video of the guy trying to return this game to Gamestop and ends up tearing up the store because he can't return it for full value. ( which you never can once you open it)

 

Here is the video:
