Nice, 0/2 so far with No Straight Roads PS4 *NEW*. Both times they not only were gutted with the shitty circle sticker, but they were both loose inside as well.
 
Gamestop employees don't deserve anywhere near $15 if most lack the ability to securely put PS4 games inside the case.

bruh I know it’s annoying but

1. That’s because PS4 cases suck. Discs always get loose. Even if put in correctly
2. Everyone deserves a living wage. You have no idea how crappy their day/life/job/jobs are.
3. They are treated like garbage by customers by a garbage company that made them stay open during the worst of the pandemic pretending to be an “essential” business. They aren’t paid enough to put up with how their own Corp treats them let alone customers

Got my 10,000 points refunded so that’s good, after calling CS.

I thought even with people just buying online, the pandemic rush for all generations of video games and systems would have more than compensated for stores being closed.

they ran out of consoles in like April. They couldn’t sell what they didn’t have and they spent most of the year only having 25-50% of customers in stores. It only makes sense sales would be down

How is XSS stock lately? I’ve seen it be up for a bit at Best Buy, longer than usual, but am not sure if it’s getting easier to find one. I will have some GS credit so ideally I can one day in a few months walk into GS (or online) get one

You took this to be negative but it’s really not. My advice is meant to apply to any occasion where extended warranties are sold (e.g., car dealerships, auto shops, etc) as a way to learn from their experience. They know how often the warranties are taken advantage of and the reliability of the product or service. I see it as letting them be human and share their experience.

dude they get paid sub-living wages they don’t need anymore learning moments other than coming to work and dealing with condescending customers while getting paid $7.25 to $9, not even the managers who at best get paid $13-$16, at absolute best case scenarios. Please don’t do this to people IRL.

When cashiers ask if I want extended warranties, I like to turn it around and ask, “would you buy it?”. It likely generates an “oh sh*t” moment for them as they decide how much their word is worth. I know it’s part of their job but employers can’t require them to lie.

like I get it, it’s annoying but these are people who are paid awful wages. Don’t do that. They’re just doing their awful job to pay the bills. Just say no multiple times if you have to. Believe they are barely much more uncomfortable pitching it to you than they seem


#14371694 Playstation 5 Re-stock Thread

Google search turns this up:
"The PS5 is backwards compatible with PS4 software, so this means both physical and digital software will work on the next-gen system. Assuming you're using the same PSN account on PS5, you will have access to all of your PS4 purchases from the PlayStation Store."

he clearly means he has physical PS4 games he doesn’t want to have to rebuy in order to play on a digital ps5.


#14370613 Expired: Best Buy: Cyberpunk 2077 (PS4/5/- XB1/Series S/X) $30

Posted by bonesawisready on 18 January 2021 - 07:07 AM

Please don’t support this studio and their business practices. It’s a decent deal but if you have to play it please wait to buy it used or second hand. Do not handwave their treatment of staff, the questionable content in game, and the admitted deception with the marketing of the game.


#14362298 Forza Horizon - Xbox 360 Xbox Live Key $3.05+.60 Eneba

Posted by bonesawisready on 17 December 2020 - 06:03 PM

Who would want this over Forza Horizon 4?

ummm it’s still a good but different game? Just coz a sequel is superior in X number of ways doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the prior games. You don’t refuse to play Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 because you have 4, or American Wasteland, etc.

No top value trade ins on this week’s ad? Was going to flip some Switch games into Cyberpunk, but with the decreased TIV and the feedback surrounding that game, it may just be best to wait.

they literally put out a statement where CD Projekt red will honor returns for the game. Don’t buy this game at all now unless you want a buggy mess and want to find out if you’re prone to seizures. That and the whole lying about crunch for a year and low wages for staff. If you can find a used copy and are patient tho and must play it, do that


#14350634 Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Deal

Posted by bonesawisready on 21 November 2020 - 05:20 AM

maybe for Christmas... im also waiting for a deal on a Ps4 Slim for 200 or Pro for 250.

there’s little to no stock due to pandemic, no point in an official sale when they can’t keep them on shelves you might as well buy one second hand

BF ad is disappointing. No deals at all on One/PS4 consoles?

the pandemic cleared out inventories and console makers don’t exactly have a lot to ship. Used ones have all sold out too, can’t do a sale if you don’t have inventory.

I’m stoked about 13 Sentinels and Legion.

Holy shit, I regret going to that subreddit now. One employee even said "fuck customers" and had hundreds of upvotes. I'll never feel guilty about canceling a preorder again. I now feel bad for GS (the actual company) if these are sadly the quality of employees that represent them.

Working at GS doesn't require any actual education. Not even a GED. If they want a higher paying job then they're going to have to graduate high school, get a college degree and then look for professional jobs that pay real salaries. Maybe if they stopped spending so much time complaining on Reddit they would have time to do that.

$9.27 is a cruel wage. Minimum wage should be $15 minimum. Costs have skyrocketed in the last 40 years but wages have stagnated. There is no reason to be against $15 wages unless you somehow feel threatened, which in that case you need to be reminded if you make more than minimum wage that means you would deserve even more than $15 with this raise in wages.


Get paid $15, double minimum wage, for a job that needs a degree (lol sorry you got a degree for $15 an hour, I know the pain) then you should get $22-$30 an hour. You used to be able to buy houses on minimum wage jobs but the US government lowered taxes by 30%+ in the 80s, and redistribute the wealth that the middle class used to experience to the already rich.

Got $45.50 for NSMBU toward Paper Mario, cashier said that’s the most he’s ever seen a game trade in for. He clearly doesn’t know about the summer of 2015 when Pikmin 3 went for $72 with a trade in promo lol. (or was is summer of 2016???)

But 5,000 points disappeared randomly so I assume a auto cert happened but it hasn’t showed up so I didn’t get to use it, oh well
