Also, "Crayola Scoot" for the PS4 is down to $19.99. Overwhelming joy.

I would've bought NSMBUD for $32 with GCU if they put the physical version on sale. Not interested in buying Nintendo games digitally tho.

Doesn't Division 2 Gold Edition come out on Tuesday?

They’re tied to an account now so you can just redownload them. This isn’t Wii U/3DS anymore thankfully.

More secure to not lose purchases definitely, but still a bit of a pain in the ass for digital sharing compared to the ease of say Xbox.

How would a GameStop employee feel if you fully pay off a pre order and cancel it

I know. I just like having physical copies of games. Especially Nintendo games that will likely retain their value for many years.

My DMC5 is finally supposed to come today. :)

One of my top 5 favorite series of all time. Maybe top 3.

That was a price drop that happened awhile ago. Waiting on a further sale before I pick one up.

Anyone know if Best Buy is doing a 9pm (midnight release) for TD2 tonight? Need to swap my store if that is the case.

I wouldn't try changing stores. Stock seems to be extremely limited. I see only a few stores with a single copy in stock (most have 0).

I was being sarcastic about the title. Maybe you were too, but no...I'm not jonesing for some Crayola Scoot. Not insulting you if you are.

Yeah, I've played 1-4 and really enjoyed each one (even 2 at the time). Trying to resist paying full price for this one. Especially with stuff coming up like Shadows die twice and MK 11. Glad I saved money not buying stuff like Anthem, Jump Force, or KH3. I'll be needing it.

Yep I am finding that out.  Wish I had seen your message BEFORE the rep told me it would be no issue to swap it to a closer store because they had enough lol.  So, I swapped it yesterday morning and now my store I switched it to got 0, so I re-placed the order back at the store local to my work since they had some in stock as of last night.  Now the game is sold out at that store and my order is still in progress, with the patch apparently in the "preparing" state.  This is the same shit that happened with the first game.  My Gold Edition got cancelled because they didn't have enough.

wasn't there a 100,000 bonus orbs bonus with deluxe edition or pre-order of DMC 5?  I never received any code, just an alt costume code.

With the Deluxe Edition there was, and it was all in one code with the costumes.

my code was just the costumes with the deluxe.... did they send wrong code?

Yes

I got the same code with my vanilla edition.  I ended up returning that edition because I was able to get the las Deluxe at my store.  I would call them or go onto their forums and message Gaming-BBY about the issue.  They reply pretty fast.

Just reminded myself that I needed to get on BB's ass about the Anthem pre-order codes they never sent. Kind of a wash for me since I have Legion of Dawn edition, but the GF never got hers. Hopefully they can invest in systems that automate correctly now that GCU has been pulled.

Yeah, that sadly won't happen. Even ringing folks out today for the Division 2 Gold Edition, there were prompts for a beta code...for the full game folks just bought. So yeah, BBY's systems are a bit wonky. If you don't get a code for a game or beta, make sure to check that the e-mail account on file is correct. It's easy for folks to just type in the wrong character and people not get codes, and not notice typos due to the font used on the pin pad when you check out and confirm the e-mail. Usually, we can just call our help desk to get not only the e-mail verified, but re-send the code right away. If possible, make sure to use an e-mail address used on your phone.

My email hasn't changed for longer than BB has had me as a customer, so that wasn't the issue. No, it was just par for the course when games launch and it comes time to issue the rewards. I PM'd them on the forums and got the codes pretty quick, so problem solved.

Yeah.  This happened to me twice last year -- once with Spider-Man and again with Forza Horizon 4.  The forums are helpful.  I'm just sorry for the folks at Best Buy that half the posts on their gaming forum are about digital codes not coming through.

Gonna exchange my TD2 Gold Edition for the regular one.  Anyone know if BBY is doing another 9pm launch tomorrow night?  I called them to ask and they said the game is released tonight at 9pm lol.

Woohoo, just got my 25% off coupon for my GCU expiring. Anyone know if it works inn addition to GCU discount. It expires in September so trying to decide if it would be most advantageous to use now before GCU expires or later on.
