#13596448 Nintendo Switch Discussion Thread

Not trying to dump on em too hard, but I'm in agreement with the general sentiment. I dunno man, for a system, whose big 'hook' is being able to be portable, that 3hour battery life on Zelda is a MAJOR letdown! With my experience with the OG 3ds and my Wii U gamepad, I can tell you, that short battery life is just insulting. 

 

*sigh*

#13324757 Gamestop: Get $250 Credit when you trade any PS4 or Xbox One, $100...

Posted by soliddragon on 11 May 2016 - 10:13 PM

So I went in, with my 2 year old ps4, and slim xbox 360 with the intent of taking advantage of both promos towards that uncharted ps4 console. Now last night i went through and backed up/cleared my ps4, and cleared out my xbox 360 , and they both are in great working condition. The only prob, there was literally a little dust on one side of my xbox, it literally just sits on my shelf unused, and I forgot to blow some air on it to clean it up. 

 

The "manager" at the GS, looks at it, and says, take in as a refurb. I ask what that means, and she replies, oh we have to charge a refurb fee because we'll have to open it up to clean out the dust. I say, if thats the case, forget it i'm not trading anything then. She acts a bit rude, as if i'm bluffing, and I start packing up my stuff, and tell her, that the refurb nonsense is simply rubbish, its an adult owned system, it simply has some dust on it from shelf wear, and I'm not accepting them trying to hit me with the fee, I can see if the system was banged up, or worn out, but this is in great shape besides the dust. So she says ok, go ahead and take it in, and i say thanks, I appreciate it. 

 

So we scan both the ps4 and the xbox 360 in, and then they scan the system I want to buy, but only the promo trade in value of the ps4 is applied. Here we go, another issue. I guess, the fine print is that both deals can't be applied. I didn't read that part online I guess, so at this point, I take it as a sign, and say, lets just forget it, and again start packing my stuff. The manager then just says go ahead and they bumped the value of my xbox 360 to the promo.

 

Point of this whole ramble, was that I guess it pays to be a bit persistent, not rude per-say, but just stand up for your rights as a consumer. I know not every story has a happy ending, and YES they could have stood firm about the 2 promos. But I suppose YMMV, and not everyone will be willing to work with you. 

 

But in the end.They satisfied the customer, and for that, I'm thankful.

 

-THE END




#13323270 Gamestop: Get $250 Credit when you trade any PS4 or Xbox One, $100...

Posted by soliddragon on 10 May 2016 - 09:12 PM

"$100 for any Slim PS3 or 360"

 

Does the 360 need to be slim to apply this promotion? Basic English grammar and my common sense are telling me "no," but I thought I should ask because I have a couple extra old backup 360's. 

The wording on the Gamestop/trade section states "Get $100 BONUS Trade Credit" Towards a new ps4.....

 

So does that mean, I get the $40 base on the X360 THEN an addtional $100? Because that's how it reads. As opposed to the "Get $250 Trade Credit" When you trade any PS4.....

#12858888 Advice on Buying a refurbished TV off of amazon

Posted by soliddragon on 11 August 2015 - 02:42 AM

I've bought a TV from Amazon warehouse deals before (sold and shipped by Amazon). The only warranty you have is Amazon's A-Z return policy, you should have 30 days to return it, should it not be working.
I bought a 42" Panasonic LED, i believe it was in "Very Good" condition, had all accessories and the box. When I got it, the box was quite ragged, torn and whatnot, but the TV itself was outstanding. And I've had it for about 2years now, (my main gaming TV). So long as its sold and shipped by Amazon, have no fear, you can always return it if damaged.

I dunno I've been so disappointed with 'Game/Story' Aspect of Infinity for the last two renditions, that I believe I'm skipping this one. ..even though Star Wars, I just dont think I can do it again. Anybody else on the fence?

They are not switching to cards. They are producing cards in addition to the Amiibos. The cards are to make up for the missing functionality of rare figures that cannot be found at retailers.

Here's a weird idea, how about simply manufacturing more product. Y'know to actually sell to the demand.
