Tried to see if I could do local pickup but every store says Closed until CL:OS. Whats that mean?

 

They are closed until further notice.

I don't have a PS4 yet, but I'm getting games for when I do get one.

I recommend Horizon Zero Dawn Complete, Bloodborne since you seem to like Souls games, Bladestorm Nightmare if you want a weird Dynasty Warriors meets tactical RTS fusion game, literally any of the Yakuza games on sale, Valkyria Chronicles Remastered, Disgaea 5 for a tactics RPG, and Shadow of the Colossus which was a really well done remaster.

 

That's just some of the games I can vouch for.  That would give you easily 1000 hours of gameplay lol.

Does anyone know if a sale like this happens on a semi-regular-ish basis? I have some things I want, but if 50% off pre-owned under $20 is something that doesn't happen almost ever, then I'll probably splurge way more.

I honestly can't remember the last time this sale came up

This kind of sale is rare.  However 50% discount of full price of preowned is available commonly in the form of deals like 4 $9.99 games for $20.  Those are usually instore only.  We recently saw a similar b2g2 that was online.

 

Personally since I did the b4g8 last week, I'm going to pass.  But solid deal if you can find games you want instock and have trade/gc credit to burn.

Also as someone new to buying bulk online, can you return products with generic cases? is that a legitimate reason to refund some items? Or do people try to go into a local gamestop to see if they can get a non generic case?

FYI guys, this deal is on the front page of Slickdeals- so if you were thinking about getting something, get it now bc everything is prob gonna be sold out soon. 

 

I got Switch games I didn't need to get...

I've been trying to pick up a few NS games and I'm amazing by how many games the system has already, an overwhelming of which I have no interest or ones that look like shovelware. All the good stuff was gone though.

Yeah, I figured out that you can use it only if you have ONE item in your cart (I believe)

Once they open again, when I find better cases/etc, I will buy them and swap out whatever then return within 7 days. The stores will often switch out or even just give you cases sometimes. Depends on the associate and such. If it's my regular store I would just ask for it, otherwise I would buy and return at another store.

Yes to all.

No returns currently though, so you'll have to wait until the store closures are over.

I thought the GSes in states that are no longer under lockdown opened back up... like Texas, GA, and FL?

Great way to pick up some older games that always seem to be stuck in the $17-20 range. Picked-up:

  • Gundam Versus
  • Ghost Recon Wildlands
  • World War Z
  • Nioh
  • Alien Isolation
  • Kingdom Hearts 3

I was a dumdum and thought I messed up my order (I didn't) so I cancelled it. I reordered it about 30 minutes ago and received an email confirmation but it doesn't show in my order history and when I check order by email/# I get an error. Anyone else run into this issue?

 

Edit: If anyone else runs into this it took about 30 minutes for it to show in my order history. I also called GameStop and they have an automated message saying they are experiencing delays with order processing/shipping but if you received an email then they received your order.

I placed 5 orders and the orders seem to take a few mins to show up in the order history. Just give it some time I’d say

Yes, they often do. Most of their newer games ship directly from stores- they try to condense where they can (if one store has multiple copies of a game you want, that store will ship those games since it's one package for multiple games now). I only get retro games from their main warehouse these days.

Good to know I ordered mostly retro games but I threw in some 3ds games in the mix and those are the ones that shipped

My store in FL just opened up today but they are not taking returns. Only 5 people allowed in store at a time. I picked up my online order all for $24:

Assassin's Creed: Origins (PS4)
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Legacy Edition (XB1)
Gears of War 4(XB1)
Halo 5: Guardians (XB1)
Wolfenstein II (XB1)

Manager at my store is great and he swapped out 2 of the generic cases with actual ones including the Gears 4 steelbook. Only generic one I got was AC: Origins

Thanks OP, ended up with...

 

Tetris Effect (PS4)

Astrobot Rescue Mission (PS4)

Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition (PS4)

Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise (PS4)

.Hack//G.U. Last Recode (PS4)

 

Was a bit salty that Bloodstained sold out as I was mid checkout somehow, but .Hack was a nice replacement. Also was happy to finally get Vesperia and some PSVR games on the cheap. Hope they all come with cases, atleast I have some extra's laying around if not.

Bloodstained (PS4)
invisible (PS4)
megaman 11 (PS4)
kirby triple deluxe (3DS)
mario Luigi dream team (3DS)

Haven't played my 3ds in quite some time. There is a layer of dust on the thing. I was disappointed when I saw ds2 scholar of the first sin. Got that game a week ago digtally and I would prefer to have a physical version but oh well.

Coupon still works if you get more five, everything after is still half off. Took advantage and got all the Resident Evil rereleases. $60 to get the rest of the Resident Evil games physically on PS4 isn’t bad.

So a order I placed at 2 pm shipped but the one I placed at 5 am when I got up is in limbo.

Added 3 copies of destiny 2 ps4 to get the 50% off in store pick-up for azure striker for switch and alliance alive 3ds ($21.xx total). Each destiny 2 copy came to $0.74 each. I'll find SOMETHING to do with them, hah.
