There are only two ways to buy video games now-a-days. 

 

1. Pre-order the latest "hot shit" online shooters for the preorder bonus, because these games generally are online focus (don't fall behind) and has active online player base for first 6 months before the flock migrate to the latest expansion DLC or the next "hot shit" game.  I usually have the "hot shit" physical disc in my console.

 

2. Wait for an year for the "game of the year" release with all the DLC included.   The implosive purchase is ok as their price dropped. These generally are single player or coop focus. I normally put them in my shelf of backlog, in case I break a leg or my internet provider or console network craps out.  Very much like the fire extinguisher, these are still under wrap for the "break glass in case of emergency" feel.

What about buying the base game at a discounted price, and then picking up DLCs/season passes when their on sale separately.

I’ve been doing that more and more often, especially for games were GOTY editions only include the base game on disc, and offer the “additional” content as redeemable codes.

Damn, I really hate the pricing/release strategies of the industry at the moment.

I hate them too. 

 

I really was going to wait for the inevitable game of the year edition, but we know the drill. Once that comes out, it will be $60 dollars. So we have to wait for that to drop too down to $20 which will take 6 months to a year. I would rather just get this deal and not worry about it anymore.

This is my preferred way too, but the problem with that (at least on the Playstation Store) is that most DLC and season passes rarely go on sale. What you see more often is the 'ultimate edition' on sale which forces you to buy to the game again just to get a good deal on the DLC. So I'm definitely springing for this Gamestop deal so I don't have to wait for the eventual 'Game of the Year' version.

I went to into a Gamestop today and just as people have said, they were clueless about it.  

 

Anyway, I tried to buy a new copy and the code didn't print on the receipt.  I showed them their own weekly ad, and they said "while supplies last."  I didn't get any luck like some of these other stories of people getting one voided along with the game.

 

Ah well.

Is it at the very, very bottom?  I'm also CST.  I'll try again at another store tomorrow.

 

I dunno what it is... some stores don't have it printed, and others do.

Right above the "WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!" portion of the receipt and below a barcode.

I just bought it last week, thankfully had the receipt and hadn't opened it.  Did the ol' return and re-buy and it worked swimmingly.

It's the expansion pass. The $40 one.


So it is the actual full $40 expansion pass with the 2 Orc tribes & the 2 story DLC’s & not the $25 story pass with just the 2 story DLC’s?

Not to sound underhanded. Bur what if we return shadow of war? Will we get to keep the season pass? Or will there be a price difference in return value? I just need the season pass, got the game for $10 awhile ago.

 

No need to apologize. It's better to take advantage of Gamestop than to be this guy:

Did you ever get that figured out? I'm thinking of giving this a shot before the ad ends.

Too friggin' hot yesterday, and I convinced myself not to go.  Too backlogged to even play the DLC anyway, so it'd be $20 for nothing.  And I really didn't want to spend another 30 minutes of my life and come up with nothing again. (15 minutes drive each way to a Gamestop)

 

Having said that, I'll try again in a couple of hours.  I need to put a pre-order down for that RDR 2 GS-only Ultimate Edition.  Trade in this other copy of SOW to the next-door BB for $10, so really the SP would be about $10 after all.

does anyone know if there has ever been a game that got a goty/complete/ultimate edition after having a gold edition?

Alright I just came back and it worked!

 

The code on the receipt is where Beta1986 said it was.  

 

If you don't ask for a new copy, they'll automatically ring you up a used copy.  If you ask for a new copy, they'll tell you about how the used copy is cheaper.  But besides that, the guy looked up the stock on the computer and said there was none within 200 miles.  This is wrong (at least for games on sale).

 

Politely ask them to check the drawers.  When a game goes on sale or has some sort of promotion, it gets removed from the inventory systems.  (I believe the website is accurate for availability if you choose the in-store pick-up option)

 

If you want to get this, I'd suggest you hurry because limited copies of new is a real thing.  The code on the receipt says it expires 12/31/2018 (4 months from now)

 

----

 

I felt good about the win and PO'ed RDR2 UE there too to help him get his preorder numbers up.  When I did this, he went on about POing the new Spider-Man, and a slew of other upcoming games.  Then went on about these new DC/Anime figures, which looked pretty cool IMO.  But I was in a hurry to trade in SOW at BB.  

 

Came out of BB and got $11.17 on GC.

Worked perfectly today. I own the game digitally and just wanted season pass. The guy let me buy the game and trade it back in used in same transaction.

Anyone have issues with returning this? Feel bad abusing the system but they are objectively the worst
