#14345793 Playstation 5 Re-stock Thread

Posted by Jackie Chandler on 12 November 2020 - 10:05 PM

I really underestimated how much bots would be a problem. I'm convinced that not a single human being has gotten any of the PS5s being sold by Walmart today.

 

At least with the in-store situations, as much as it sucked to have to wait in person for a while, you had to have a body there to get one. With the way things have been handled today, I'm sure there are going to be quite a few people with numerous consoles they plan to sell, and much fewer people who want to have just one who can't get one at all.

 

In the future, assuming we have another online-only situation like this, I'd really like to see the manufacturer handle all the distribution themselves. That way they could keep a closer eye on who's ordering multiple with the same address/same card number/etc. and actually limit those people to 1.

All my stores are temporarily out of stock now too. I really need to get to bed, but I know 5 minutes after i do they are going up.

So what are you waiting for? Go to bed, for the rest of us!

Any one get a PS5 on GameStop tonight?

At this point I think I'd take the $800 if it would let me add it to the cart.

Post deals not your blog definitely applies to this discussion. May be time for a new thread. This ones likely done for.


It’s relevant discussion, because this is apparently important enough to “flag” the sale games with red in an effort to deter sales. It this discussion isn’t relevant than the games shouldn’t be flagged with information pertaining to it.

Child porn and white supremacy is just questionable to you? Also, you make it seem as if it was just some low level employee. He is the PR and marketing manager and there were other employees involved in the AMA as well.


No, child pornography and racism are serious problems, but considering it was an AMA for a video game company posted in a video game thread I’m going to go out on a limb and say the majority of its audience was not the subgroup of 8chan involved in all that terrible stuff. And I’m not doubting the PR manager’s position in the company, but no matter how you look at it he’s still just one person who instructed some other people to assist him in something no one knew any better about. I mean how often do you have to worry about being associated with literal criminals just by posting about video games in a video game forum? People are reading way too much into this. It was a careless mistake, but they’ve apologized and obviously didn’t partake in any kind of illegal activity some of the community there is known for. It is not worth not buying good games that hard-working developers made, just because one guy tried to do something just about every other gaming company does every day, except on the wrong site. (As long as that’s all there is to it, of course.)

If you’re gonna boycott anyone, boycott Taco Bell until they bring the Beefy Crunch Burrito back. They’re the real monsters here.

Normally I don’t get involved in this kind of discussion, but it sounds to me like the THQ Nordic/8chan thing was literally one guy’s decision who didn’t know about the history of the site or what went on there. No company would deliberately commit PR suicide by associating itself with child pornography or any other kind of serious illegal activity. It’s obvious it wasn’t meant to represent the company or the rest of its employees’ values as a whole. Just the wrong platform for an AMA, clearly. I seriously don’t understand why people are willing to not buy their games because of one guy’s mistake, intentional or not.

The gaming industry has way, way more pressing issues that you should be voting with your money over. Predatory business practices and game mechanics involving gambling, overworked employees working thankless jobs who are lucky to get paid for all the work they do, digital platforms that literally steal information from other programs you use to try to one-up competitors. And we’re upset some guy hosted an AMA to a questionable audience and then apologized? Come on, guys.

On a more relevant note, Samurai Shodown V Special is also on sale right now for $6. Didn’t see it as part of the sale or in the OP, so for anyone interested: https://store.playst...SVS000000000PS4

Bloodborne- 10.50 (LN) - 4 left


Thanks for this, there seem to be 19 'Good' condition ones left now for $9.34. That's a steal for this game.


#13780912 Wal-Mart Pre-Order Discounts Thread

Posted by Jackie Chandler on 17 July 2017 - 03:19 PM

I think a true cheapass wouldn't preorder at all and wait for a satisfactory price drop post release. But that's just me.


And I think a true cheapass wouldn't buy games at all and wait until they can pirate anything. But that's just me.

Real talk though, I try to be frugal about my game purchases, but lately there have been a lot of games getting released that I don't want to wait on. It's good to find some kind of deal on those games so I don't have to choose between waiting for a stellar deal that may or may not happen, and paying full price.

Yeah istocknow also says that there's not a single gamestop in the US with a switch. Not sure how accurate they are...


For what it's worth, I would *much* rather the site not show some places that do have it, as opposed to showing lots of places that don't have it and saying that they do.

I did that exact method.

Gotcha, thanks for confirming.

You may be right. Just tried to transfer it from ps3 and I couldn't find it.

Yeah, it's probably intentional then. I have no idea what kind of process PS1 games go through in terms of making them compatible with PSP/Vita outside of CFW, but maybe a POPS selection isn't possible. Also, it's worth noting that when playing PS1 games, the Vita just emulates a PSP, whereas I'm sure the PS3 actually emulates a PS1. Hopefully that clears some things up. In theory, it wouldn't be impossible for them to fix the issues in a later patch for the game. And in the meantime, it'll let people play a legitimate copy of the game without shelling out big bucks on places like eBay.

 

And in case it's worth noting, "purchasing" the free demo of Amplitude on PS4 also makes the PS3 version available for free. The PS3 listing displays as "Download to your PS3" for me, so if you have the PS4 version you probably have both now. Thanks for the heads-up on the glitch!




#13192007 Amazon Warehouse Deals Thread XVI

Posted by Jackie Chandler on 07 February 2016 - 06:04 AM

the graders probably gave that LN, and then rejected the disc as a separate trade

The item description was as follows.

 

Condition: Used - Acceptable Downloadable content (DLC) or codes for online play may require additional purchase. Item may come repackaged. Missing shrink-wrap, activation codes for bonus online content may be missing or expired. Medium mark on item case. Large cut / scratch on item case. Medium wrinkle / bend on item case. Large crack on item case.

 

I'm not too upset about the loss because I just bought the game for a friend of mine to try out, and he didn't seem too impatient to get the chance to. I'm still surprised and a bit unsettled at the fact that it came without the game altogether, though.

No offense taken. It takes a real man to admit he was wrong on the internet. Thanks again for making the thread.




#12973876 B1G1 All Used Games/Movies/Books @ GoHastings

Posted by Jackie Chandler on 17 October 2015 - 07:25 PM

This is terribly inaccurate information.

 

Do some research before you try to misinform people and take a dump on my thread.

 

Also, Previously Viewed doesn't qualify as used.

I can't tell if you're being facetious or not, but the B1G1 is definitely not for all used games. As far as I can tell, the only used games that FREEBIE apply to are the ones under the "Best Selling Used Games" category.

 

If you don't believe me, try adding any two games that aren't listed in that category (I used Super Mario Maker and One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3) to your cart, both used, and apply the coupon. You'll notice it doesn't discount anything, nor does it make any free if you add one from the aforementioned category. But if you add a second game from the list of qualifying games, it'll make the cheaper one free.

 

If I'm wrong, I'll admit it. I'm not trying to shit on anyone's thread. I do appreciate you making it, because I picked a couple things up. Just trying to help manage peoples' expectations here.
