mine came in ok in a bubble wrap mailer but it has spider wrap indentations unfortunately.  I'll likely play the game anyways so the box isn't a big issue for me at this point.  I'll be annoyed if the steelbook is damaged though.

Ehh guys really its just a box

People who are willing to pay a full price premium, deserve to get what they paid for. Unless you're willing to pay $200 for a beat up open box game, maybe your opinion isn't so thought out. If nobody is willing to buy damaged goods at full price, maybe it wasn't a good idea to damage it in the first place? 

 

If it's super discounted and charged as such, that's a different story. But "it's just a box" argument is dumb and unhelpeful, regardless of intention.

I have come to the realization that who cares....it’s a material item you can’t bring with you when you die...

Stop worrying about the little things like boxes

You cared enough to rephrase the "it's just a box" statement. Feel free to stop worrying about others. Can't bring trolling with you when you die.

My steelbook was crushed. Never dealt with an exchange or return from BB yet.

Got mine today. Came in a small box. Also came with a FigPin Evan. Guess it was a leftover pre-order bonus item. Only minor damaged on the top back corner of the box where it looks like it got crushed a little, but other than that it's great!

What?

Lol

Not trolling, stating my opinion and how I’ve gotten over the anxiety I had over getting damaged items. Sometimes it helps to look at the big picture, no need to get upset.

No need to assume that I'm upset. I just literally answered your question of who cares (that would be you). Actually, a lot of people are reporting how their boxes are (it's literally half this entire thread), and some expressed distain of best buy damaging their own products for sale (which I'm among, but only because it doesn't make any sense for Best Buy to do this if they actually want things sold).

I received mine today in a box. Oddly I think it was damaged before it made it into the box. Some edge damage on the outside box and the steelbook has a small dent with some minor damage to the artwork. I don't mind at a discount but I would have returned it if I paid retail.

Sounds like yours was in that spider security wrap. It sucks, but best buy does it a lot for no real reason (as they have other options for security).

Like I said earlier they like to troll the whiny collectors. Nothing is more entertaining than a grown man throwing a fit because every Breath of the Wild Collectors Edition is in a VERY tight spider wrap.

It's a bad business decision to ruin your product before a customer purchases it.

 

Let's flip the script... 

 

You go to a car lot and want to buy a brand new car. The make/model is irrelevant. You decided on the one you like and before you sign the paperwork, I kick in the doors and cause some decent dents.

 

So what, it's just a car. It doesn't affect the performance of it. It's only cosmetic... you can't take a car to your grave. Nothing's more entertaining than a grown man throwing a fit over some door dents.

Yea, they aren't getting the fact that it is something you are paying for. It's easy for them to say "it's just cosmetic" when they aren't the ones buying. If the naysayers can't agree to only buy only shitty condition things, then they are just being hypocrites (ie: not practicing what they preach).

So I see! Looking at the damage more closely the spider wrap makes sense. I can feel the indentations in the metal of the case.

 

If they don't want to glass case the things I wish they would use those plastic transparent boxes.

Yep, I knew it lol. BB could use those plastic transparent boxes or keep it behind a cage/display window, but they they don't 50% of the time. Loss prevention guys aren't thinking/working, or employees don't care because the spider wrap is easier/available. The LP guys could mandate a ban on the spiders, but they probably don't care (and BB is paying them too much for doing nothing).

I didn't go into the car dealership every day complaining about how they didn't have a Meta Knight Amiibo in stock or force customer service to call the other stores in the area to see if they had a Guardians of the Galaxy steelbook that didn't have a .03mm dent in it. If I had, I'd understand you kicking my doors in or whatever you were on about there.

Um, what are you talking about. People just want undamaged goods to buy. How hard is it to understand that. Also, I'm sure for the car dealership, it would be unacceptable for them to damage any of their cars pre-sale.

I can tell you this is true. Call it tin foil or not. If a store is in a district with high loss and management dictates extra security, so be it. Stores can use the extra large plastic bins or have the games locked in a cage or keep the high loss items in warehouse. Or some employees care and put the spiderwrap on carefully not to over tighten it.

Anything else is maliciousness, and I’ve seen it first hand.

The employees that do that are probably the same ones that push down hard on their ball point pens when they autograph the sticker on your in store pickup order.

I was pleased to get mine on Tuesday for online in-store pickup and it was in a plastic box and not spider wrapped. Had a tiny ding in 1 corner but that's normal, was very happy.

Interesting that that is widespread. I’ve told employees not to do that at my local store. The front end sup now uses a marker to sign off on pick ups. Must have been complaints higher up. And no I never complained.

Mine just came in the mail (bubble mailer). There was no spider wrap on it but the box is a little crushed in a few places and the shrinkrap has some tearing. I haven’t opened it yet, but I can hear tiny pieces of plastic rattling around and a loose disc shifting. I’m guessing the disc holder broke :(
How do you even fix that in a steelbook?

You don’t. It has to be replaced.

It may not be the steelbook spindle that broke, it may be the normal PS4 case. I was very pleased to see that it came with both cases!

I figured I’d open it since there was zero chance of being able to exchange it since it’s long sold out. It turns out it was the ps4 case and not the steelbook. It’s still kind of annoying, but I can live with it

Asxsoon as the sale is over, it's miraculously/instantly back in stock again.

 

How are they allowed to get away with this?
