Does anyone know wtf this is lol

It's titled: 

YOU WANT THIS box

 

https://www.gamestop...x/B159807A.html

Looks like a bunch of clearance stuff they haven't been able the sell and don't want to "penny out" or can't because the stores are closed. I'm wouldn't expect much...

 

And on a separate topic...  are all promotional items $999?  :razz: If only you could get points before discounts!

You will get something really good to bait the rest of us into buying it and we'll be ones screwed.

Don't buy blind boxes.  They're just clearance/unsellable items and the chances of getting anything worth a damn are slim to none.  You'll get a crappy $5 game, an ugly wrong sized shirt, a few of those knockoff lego products and maybe a pop figure.

iirc, Gamestop did something similar to this but it was offered thru PUR rewards, it end up being some big items but can't find reports on it.

 

EDIT: Ordered and cancelled to see the contents. This is the random stuff that was included;

Lol told you.  Its just unsellable chaff.  I find it funny that they're selling Mario's ankles though (Yes I know its socks.  Probably the best thing in that list lol).  Also a blind bag inside a blind box...

Is this in the app?

 

I've never been able to see my order until it ships, much less be able to cancel it, from the site.

I keep getting an error saying that no payment id was selected when using my $5 on final fantasy XV for pickup.. am I breaking the system because it’s supposed to be free? I am entering a cc as well..


Yes, enter a credit card even though the certificate covers the whole charge.

I see the same items under my order, so appears to be the same for all orders, not random or anything.

Does GS even check and clean their preowned controllers?  Ordered a blue Dual Shock 3, as I need a replacement for my PS3.   Got it yesterday and hooked it up to sync to the console.   Then it proceeds to act like it has a mind of it's own, moving through the main menu and pressing X randomly(it turned off the console twice doing this).  So don't know how that passed a QA check at a store or warehouse.

 

After a google search, it's apparently something to do with the gunk that "sweats" from the rubber of the analog sticks.  Taking it apart, used a q-tip w/ rubbing alcohol and cleaned off the analog sticks and the rubber pads for the buttons(as the gunk covered most of that pad).  After spending 15 minutes making sure everything was put back right, tested it and apparently fixed it(fingers crossed it stays that way).  Still can't believe GS sends out stuff that obviously isn't tested.

That’s the best artwork I’ve ever seen. Is it reversible?

Thanks a lot, now I want to listen to some Nine Inch Nails now. That's it, not going to derail the thread anymore.

GS's tester at the store level can only test 360 and XB1/PS4 controllers. But yeah if it comes from the warehouse you would think they would hook it up for at least a minute since they know it can't be tested at the store level and there had to be a reason it was sent to the warehouse as defective.

Would easily pay $35 for a box of a GOTG like Cory in da House. The actually contents are pretty funny though lol

I'm a little surprised, Gamestop's not offering actual blind/mystery boxes for video games like they did in the past.

Yeah the $5 Pro Rewards thing is a coup if you have to spend it in-store and the stores are all closed for quarantine.
Well played, Gamestop.

Lmao that box. Packed to the limits with unsellable fortnite and overwatch trash.

Anyone actually buckle and get one? I feel like I should just to make a YouTube unboxing. I'd be willing to bet I didn't get a single item I cared about.

Edit: oh I see yall are tricky on that last page and figured it out already lol. Nice!

I knew it would be trash as soon as I saw it.  These things are everywhere at conventions and always boast "You could get a super expensive item!" The contents are always crap but people keep buying the damn things.
