lol, ok yall wont beleive this.....but my ebay purchase, just got CANCELLED, the dude actually emailed me today, with me assuming it would be confirmation he shipped my order, saying his supplyer just informed him that the title was backordered....
WTF?! after me asking him several questions if the game was new he really sounded like he had it.
not to mention you should not sell an item on ebay thinking you might get it. lol, he said i could choose to wait "2-3 weeks" for him to get a shipment from his suppliers but when i explained to him how any retail website saying that for this game basically meant they were never getting any in, he politely refunded my money, promising to tell me if and when he actualy had any.
anyhow, i was back to square one. I had gone from having it ordered at that crappy site targetstar, only to notice it was likely out of stock, and having to leave numerous emails and messages to cancel it, taking up until i ordered it off ebay for it to actually get cancelled.
i was gonna buy it from my friend for 45 plus shipping and that fell through
i actually bought it on ebay for 39.99 and then THAT just fell through.
------oh and here's the magical part of this whole insane story
i was very depressed and pissed. So on a whim i decided to see if there were any gamecrazys in the area, there is oddly enough only one in the greater los angeles area. so i call them up and they had 1-new-copy-in-stock.
see, i still could never get passed the stigma that gamecrazy was linked to hollywood and thusly only sold mosely used rental games, i guess i just had to get passed it though because they had a new copy and they were holding it for me! they were closing in less than an hour and they were off crenshaw, something told me that was a trip i'd prefer to make tommorow afternoon but i got way too squirmy....so i sped over their at 80Mph+ and grabbed it so it would be safe with me.
in summary Target star: 34.99 *cancelled
friend 45 *ditched
Ebay guy 39.99 *lol, never had it
Gamecrazy 29.99, bought and earned every last bit of it's factory sealed mintyness.
lol ending up wit hthe cheapest possible price and brand new after all leads me to beleive in a higher force of Cagnyess, i think i'll call it "Carma" (Cheap ass Karma).
lol, i hope i dont have to deal with this again when i buy the rest of my DS games once the DS lite gets released stateside. (only trauma center seems suspect, but i think it should still be around....at the very least on gamequest, or gameexpress)
