In Topic: The Gamestop Thread

Call me naïve, but even after all of these years I'm still not 100% sure why the "Gamestop ban" is such a significant thing. Keep in mind I'm not a big trader and not privy to a lot of the "flip" situations that go down. If it were the "flip" people that were the only ones getting banned, to some degree I could understand it.  

 

The point I am really trying to get at here is that I often hear of people being banned simply for trading in "a lot" of games. And that's the part I don't understand. Gamestop acts as if they WANT you to trade in stuff all the time. Every time you go in there they ask if you have trades, they encourage trades when they advertise new games, and they even offer promotions for trading in games. So why is it that if I were to decide to unload my collection one day, they would "ban" me simply for trading in "too much" stuff? It doesn't make much sense to me. If they are going to sell everything I trade in for profit, why would they cut themselves off from that opportunity? Why would they care that I woke up one day and decided to unload my entire collection of 200 PS4 games? Why do they feel the need to suddenly punish me for doing what they are asking me to do? I keep hearing about people getting banned after reaching a certain credit or profit margin. Are they automatically assuming the games are stolen when the margin gets too high? I guess this may be a dumb question but someone please enlighten me.

Thanks! Been waiting for Sairento to get cheap, and now was the time! I grabbed Golem and Angry Birds as well so ended up getting free shipping. My daughter will want to play Angry Birds, the only game I'm a little iffy on is Golem, reviews I read stated the control scheme was difficult to master and the game was hard to enjoy as a result.

looks like you can get Dollhouse at best buy and gamestop

Oh, yeah, what I meant was that it was sold out from Gamefly, because of the fact that it was only $10 from them. 


In Topic: 3D Blu-Ray thread

For me personally, UHD is a format too far. Ive already spent the last few years slowly upgrading my collection originally VHS from DVD to Blu-Ray. I dont think Ill be inclined to spend yet another decade upgrading all my discs again for those few extra pixels. But then again, if the only way to upgrade The Shining, is to buy a UHD along with the blu-ray...who knows?

I've pondered this dilemma a few times. When Blu-Ray found it's groove and we started getting true 1080P capability, the jump in video quality felt significant enough that I wanted to upgrade most of my collection. With 4K I haven't felt the same, however as newer movies release that I don't already own, if 4K is an option I will try to get it in most cases. But I don't find myself needing to re-buy things in 4K that I already have on Blu.

Omen of Sorrow is $19.97 in store at Gamestop if one of your local stores has it in stock.

Thank you so much! There was literally only one new copy left in my entire town and I just reserved it to pick up on the way home from work.
