Is this Online Only? I ask because the online store is pretty dumb in that if an item is out of stock(maybe this applies to just new) online, you can't do a in store pick up. 

guy tried it for me, didnt work, ymmv maybe somebody else had better luck

I hate to be that guy, but did anyone try returning the "new" game? I wanted to get SpongeBob for this deal but it wasn't available for pickup. Might try to do an exchange.

Someone talk me out of this.  

 

In my cart: jedi fallen order ps4 35$

Links awakening switch $27.50

 

free shipping 

total after tax is like $68

 

I am not going to play either of these for probably years, I have a backlog that is just silly, can probably pick up fallen order for under $20 at black friday, under $10 in a year from now.  Link's awakening will still be there, I still have to finish breath of the wild and mario odyssey.

Fallen Order will be $10 before you know it. EA games drop pretty quickly. Link's Awakening eventually it will likely be $50 new haha. I would just wait, but I don't try to buy things I wont get to in years because they will get cheaper for the most part.

That's part of the reason why I'd avoid the hell out of this deal. Because if they send you an opened copy with a "new" sticker on it, or worse, just a generic case, and you try to return it as new, you know damn well, suddenly it stops being "new" in the eyes of the employee that you are trying to do the return for.

What I did in the past for switch games was to use the b2g1 free with elite pro, did that for zelda breath of the wild, xenoblade 2, mario odyssey and others.  But my elite pro is long expired and they no longer do elite pro.

 

I think my best bet is to wait for black friday.  Or at least some sale on switch items.  Literally all of the first party switch games stay at 60$ msrp.  I'll wait for now

I don't understand the hype, it's a $20 game at best (if you are a huge SW fan). Play the Force Unleashed games, story and plot make more sense anyway. If you have a backlog, then I suggest work on it and wait for the $10 sale...maybe $20 if you really want to and no backlog. Better SW games out there imo.

Not a huge Star Wars fan but I’ve been hearing it’s good and a somewhat hard game. My backlog is huge and it’d be wise for me to wait till Black Friday assuming it’s $20 or below and if it’ll be compatible with PS5

Mine arrived today.  Open case, not even resealed.  Did have the code booklet inside.  Guess I need to test it.

 

Does anyone know if nintendo / eshop gives you a confirmation screen after entering a code and before adding the contents to your account?  I know psn and MS do, just unsure about eshop.  TIA.

I was excited for the sale when I saw it on the website thinking it was half-off prenowed games up to 30....even added one to my cart  and was like why is it not showing as on sale.

Just got mine as well, Tetris was opened but the code was inside and luckily the code worked. Mine wasn't resealed with the sticker either. For me when I redeemed it had an option for what I wanted to use for auto renew, if you don't select anything and just exit it shouldn't redeem the code.

Pretty annoyed as the case is relatively beat up, definitely not what you expect with a "new" game but at least the code worked I guess. The other game I got (Tokyo Mirage Sessions) came with cover art and unredeemed coins so not a total loss. Have a Ni No Kuni and YS VIII coming next week, hopefully both are complete. But I won't be putting any more orders in with Tetris that's for sure.

My Tetris 99 was still shrink wrapped and my Link's Awakening looks mint.

Now I know to not play the lottery since I've used up all of my luck for this year.
