So a buddy of mine bought Horizon Zero Down, Uncharted 4 and the Drake Collection for me using my trade credit on Black Friday, but the idiot got used copies for the Uncharted games instead of new sealed ones and spent more of my credit than he should have. Will I have any trouble getting my credit back and/or getting new copies of the games I wanted?

 

Friend did you a favor (?) and is now an idiot.  Nice.

If he specifically asked the friend to buy new copies of those games and the friend ended up getting used copies, then yes, said friend is an idiot who didn't follow directions.

Gamestop can be a chaotic place, maybe new copies weren't available.  So the lesson is, never do anything for a friend who will call you an idiot if you potentially did the best you could.  Got it!

I will never call a friend who buy me wrong things an idiot. Clearly some people don't have manners

Also do you really go to GS to buy sealed games? hahaha

You can get your money back since it's under 30 days but I doubt they'll give you a new one for the black Friday price

Actually this is incorrect. You can only get your money back within 7 days on used games but you have 30 days to exchange it for the same product if it's defective. The 30 money back policy is only for new unopened merchandise.

Edit: I'm assuming it was in store but if it was online then I believe you still have time to return them.

I find it funny people complain about Gamestop treating them like crap for helping but treating your friend like crap for helping is ok :-P

Take a look at your receipt.  We are in the holiday timeframe for returns and GStop is very generous in bumping the return times for ALL games to January 15th (for purchases from Thanksgiving on).  I didn't believe the print, so I asked a manager and they confirmed the return window.  Normally USED games are 7days and new/unopened games are 30.

FTFY.

life is too short for bad games.


It wasn't a bad game...it actually had a decent campaign with a story that fit the Metal Gear universe rather nicely, and the online was quite fun. Lack of significant added content caused the population to fade rather quickly (ie. Maps, modes) and a pretty poor crew management system (not to mention the monotonous wait times and microtransactions to bypass them that were akin to a F2P game). But I played it for about 2 months from launch, and loved it. Excellent gameplay.

The term “idiot” was used endearingly, as his pet name for me is “moron.” Having realized far too late that strangers on the internet wouldn’t know this, I admit my words sound harsh and unappreciative. All that said, it’s good to know I can get my credit back if not the new games at the BF price. And once again, I see the dangers of pure text without context raise their ugly head...entirely my fault, though. Carry on, GS thread!

I tried going through the comments during the last stealth bump but couldn't find my answer. Does anyone know if Mario Odyssey and Splatoon 2 got bumped?

I tried trading in two copies of DOOM for Switch (wanted to trade in both for the 25% bonus) the other day and the dude said he could only take one today and the other tomorrow for LP reasons. Has this always been a thing, or should I just try somewhere else? If it is the case, are there any Switch games out there that are flippable without a loss to throw in with it?

Yes, one game per system per trade-in transaction. Recommended to go to different stores if you're trying to trade in mults

I wasn't sure if Katamari Damacy Reroll was going to be hard to find or not. It went OOS online, then came back, but now OOS again and stock is starting to disappear from stores. I would imagine it would not have a very high print run, but I wonder if more will become available later. I'm hoping to get a pre-owned copy for $20 with my Elite Pro discount. Play-asia has it available as well, so there's always that route.

I absolutely loved it on PC, but I'm awful at console FPSs, I died a few times on the first level and figured it just wasn't worth it to play through again on Switch.

I might buy a few when I'm in store just in case it does go OOS for good. I doubt it's a game that'll be in production for long if they haven't already stopped.

Today I learned: the app will tell you a game is in stock even if it's on hold, but the website will not.

Sorry to hear that...I’ve been watching the stock on KD:R myself. I guess the secret is out: It was everywhere around me until yesterday, and suddenly only 1 store within 50 miles has it left. Might try to go snag it tomorrow

Yeah, seems to be gone now, several locations claimed to have stock but all failed to be able to fulfill the order. Guess I'll stick with my PS2 copy for now.

Finally found a store with a copy of Reroll, 2 hour roundtrip. At least it was actually a sealed copy.
