Not sure what circle stickers you're talking about as that console does not come with stickers that seal the box (all Nintendo consoles stopped having seal stickers)

I think it may be an older one or something, because your nintendoland is on a disc, mine was digital.

Someone also said that nintendo is doing the stickers on wiiu again, I think.

Either way, good find.

lol, people are selling this for 34.99 obo on ebay, might as well just keep it.

I am surprised they held value with all the under $20 ones that work just as well.

Haha I'm trying to see about changing his gamertag because that would be hilarious. I just signed into his profile on this console, and it said "signed out elsewhere." I'm sure this guy is confused now, since he doesn't even bother to wipe a hard drive before his little scheme.

 

Sorry guys, I'm just shocked because every time I have bought something off Amazon Warehouse in the past, it hasn't been a scam. I thought they might check serial numbers... Hey, if they don't, I guess everyone in this thread knows the trick to getting a new PS4 or Xbox One now!

You should put a password on it as well, change the email address. :)

I don't know if this has happened to anyone else, but I just received an Xbox One w/ Kinect I ordered from AWD last week in acceptable condition. I thought it might be a dinger because it said marks on item case and did not say "previous gamer data may still be on hard drive."

 

It isn't a dinger. It looks like someone ordered an Xbox One off Amazon about a month ago, replaced the brand new one with one from February 2014, and then returned the package with the old console to Amazon! I only know this because everything else was in BRAND NEW condition except the beat-up high-pitched-squeaking console and the scratched-to-heck controller. All cords/kinect were in brand new wrapping with the clear adhesive still on all the glossy parts. He must have wanted a new console because his one-year Microsoft warranty had just expired on his old one.

 

The only good thing from this experience is that this DINGUS left all his profile information and games on it, not even password protected! So it has his name, address, and other information still on it. The funny thing is that when I was trying to see if the console worked properly today, a notification popped up after about an hour saying his profile had been signed out of my console because the scum had signed into an xbox one from a different location! Just further proof he just replaced his year old xbox one with a new one on Amazon's dime.

 

Maybe this isn't the case, but I don't understand why the hdmi, kinect, and power cords look brand new while the console doesn't even have any styrofoam holders or any sort of protection around it! It was just loose in the box!

 

I'm returning it this week. I just thought maybe some of you others had run into something like this before. What do you guys think happened in this scenario? A year and two months old console with brand new accessories? And the guy is already playing on a different Xbox One?

I don't know, you should change the contact info and put a password on the Xbox Live account first.

 

You could also sign him up for all kinds of offers, and play Call of Duty and cuss little kids so he gets banned first.

 

Wow, I'm an asshole.

Clean it with some Calgon or Ajax, 2 of the only substances that can remove skank from a hooker!

Reformat the hard drive, make sure you get any partitions as well, then reload the operating system.

You should be ok.

 

If you have access to the factory restore CD try those as well.

Thanks for clarifying on the combat. 

 

I don't have a *NEW* 3DS, so I'm going to buy the Wii version. As you said, I can recuperate the money I spent if I don't like it, so I'll give it a spin soon and see what happens.  

I got lucky on my Wii copy, and found a very nice on at Gamestop. After the birthday coupon, it came out to right around $40.

 

It's still more than $50-$60 on eBay and I don't think the 3DS version is going to knock that value down a lot. Reprints knocked it down some, but there is still a good demand for it. It's a good game, and one that is nice in a collection.

Alright, would I enjoy this game?

 

I haven't experienced a JRPG (from what I remember), so, is this a good start for newbz?

It is a good game, it can be pretty long, but from what I've played of it (just a few hours of the Wii version), I like it.

 

I must tell you though, I am a pretty big RPG fan.

 

You may want to watch a few gameplay videos on it and see.

Exactly like a poor man's Skyrim.
Similar in execution, astonishly worse in execution.

 

 

Nothing like Skyrim. More like Fable that's more linear. It's decent, story is ok, combat is actually pretty good.

 

 

Poor people can afford better.

You guys convinced me to spend $13 on it.

 

I enjoyed Fable (the first one) so if it sucks, I'm only out $10. Thanks.
