I get why GameStop would have open new copies. Mostly to deter return fraud at other stores. Only places I've gotten open new copies from GameStop, are stores located by Walmarts.
What do you mean? If they had sealed games, people could return them to a different GameStop for a profit or something? I don't see how opening them will deter fraud. Wouldn't that allow you to play it really quick and return for a full refund?

At this point I honestly think you're just trolling.
Haha, partly yes lol. It's hilarious how triggered and mad dreamerabe is. So angry that he can't resist telling us about his saliva in the food fetish over and over... wtf.
So ok, I'm not the most generous tipper but I'll admit that I tip at most places that I am expected to do so. I was trolling about never tipping. That being said, I'm just always curious why so many people here have that moral insecurity, have to be so judgmental and have a holier than thou attitude, when being on CAG means we're not the most generous people sometimes.
But I do genuinely like to hear your opinion on my question about why it's evil to not pay extra for some service types, but it's ok to not tip at Walmart, especially for the part time workers that get paid almost nothing, and also why it's acceptable to try to save every penny possible on games, when that money can go to the people who put hard work into making the game. Just curious how you justify it to yourself. How do you exactly determine every worker's total income/benefits/costs, and calculate what the threshold is for not tipping?

When I was in school I didn't go anywhere where I would need to tip because I was broke and I'm not going to push my hard times onto someone else.
So instead, now you push your hard times onto game companies/retail stores by not paying the full $60 that they deserve/ask for? Every penny you don't pay is less profits for the company, which means less jobs, and less pay for employees in the future. It's ok to screw them over but not Prime Now drivers? I can assure you that some of the employees at retail stores like Walmart and Target that helped you check out/find a game were part time workers that don't make the big bucks every hour. I doubt you tipped them, and also tried to get the biggest discount on the games as possible.

That is no longer the case. As far as they care, if you don't pay attention to the console's internal messaging system, you have only yourself to blame. They flat out told me it was my fault for expecting things to be done in a reasonable fashion. Essentially, the Animal house excuse: "You fucked up, you trusted us!"
Do you ever take a break from trying to blame everyone else but yourself? You keep mentioning how Sony could have taken simple little actions like sending you an email as a reminder about the deadline. But why do you not blame yourself also for not taking a few seconds to read the details of the promotion? I agree that a reminder email would be nice, but to say that you "feel ripped off by Sony" for making assumptions and not reading the promotion details is ridiculous.
Were you not curious at all about how they were going to send you the code? Unless they specifically said they were going to send it to you by email, you're at fault for mysteriously assuming that it'll be sent by email. If you can't read and fulfill your obligations in a deal, don't participate in the deal. Imagine if millions of customers acted like a whiny little brat like you calling up Sony after every promotion asking for a new code because they were too lazy to read the details that were pretty clearly written. Do you think they should hand out millions of codes every time if people complain? Stop being so selfish and just accept your fault and loss that you brought onto yourself.
But hey, if you still think you're right and they're wrong, you should sue them for fraud and see how that goes. I doubt any judge will side with you.

As much as I hate Gamestop (and this is a shit deal for me too), I think we need to realize that $5 per game is not that bad if you can find 4 games on that list you haven't played. Most of us on CAG probably can't since we play so many games, but to the average gamer paying $5 each to play great series like Bioshock, Uncharted and Far Cry is not exactly terrible.

Does anyone know what pre-owned game I should buy for around $30 to trade right back in to minimize loss of value? I've got A LOT of PUR points to use for a reward certificate, and need trade credit quick to buy an ebay giftcard to buy something which the listing ends tonight.

How much are the collectibles worth? Possible to flip all goods and end up with the game being free?
When multiple major retailers are selling it for $99.99 NEW (and MSRP is not much more at $129.99), why would you think that anyone would be stupid enough to pay you $99.99 for an opened USED item, that doesn't even include the game? Unless you're going to wait for a long time and hope that there is a major shortage in supply compared to demand and boosting up the price, you better find an idiot to sell it to to get a free game out of this.

Went to trade in my games today. I was really surprised to get 20 dollars for Mario kart (after refurb fee). In addition, I traded in Kirby Epic Yarn and Arkham Knight totaling 52 dollars. Really appreciate the person who pointed out the Arkham Knight from Best Buy. I was able to burn off some credits there and buy Mario at GS without paying OOP.
Was your Mario Kart disc scratched up? One time I traded in games I just bought at another GS to make a profit, and also kept the cases to replace some of my broken or missing ones. The guy told me the reason why he is charging me a refurb fee is because I didn't have the cases and games without cases are usually scratched. I told him that they came straight from another GS and asked him if he's implying that GS tricked me into buying scratched up games. Well he instantly got rid of the refurb fees like nothing ever happened... Gotta always watch out for their scams. (and no, the discs were not scratched anyways which pisses me off even more that he tried charging me a refurb fee).

We were talking about return fraud and I related purchasing games from a store and trading them back into the store as being on the same level. You are intentionally hurting the bottom line.
So if a store is selling something at a price below its original cost to bring in customers to hopefully buy other items too, it's also fraud if you only purchase that one item because "you are intentionally hurting the bottom line"? You force yourself to buy other items to make sure you're not making the company lose money? Get off your high horse bro. Your morals/logic doesn't even make sense anyways.

The $30 is once every 2 years. it's virtually impossible that there are NO games within 2 years that you want to buy... And it also includes collector's editions, bonus when trading in and double reward points when buying games too, so you can rack up GCs fast.
After the 3rd new release you buy with GCU it's all profit for you.
I don't think you understand the meaning of profit...

How many of the same title can you trade in at the same time? Thanks in advance
It really depends on the employee. Usually they won't let you trade in more than one exact same game. If it's the same game on different consoles, they should allow it. Some people take it seriously, some don't care at all as long as you're not being super suspicious about it.

Is there anybody that works at Gamestop that can explain to me why do you guys (& girls) ALWAYS give me the generic black case and or a Platinum hits version of a game? Especially when i CLEARLY spend 30 mins to an hour finding the perfect book and perfect box art and perfect case in the store? I've returned to gamestop 3 times in the past 2 days alone just because i've (after getting the box/art/book problem solved) go home and realize i've gotten a platinum hits CD in nearly every game i've brought home. I even went out of this sales way, to buy a copy of "Far Cry Compilation" only to take the discs out of the yellow sleeve and find out that the copy of Far Cry 3 was platinum hits??? This isnt a problem at my local store since they know how i am and they just rock in general, but tracking down other games in other stores always seem to be the same deal. "take my copy, place my copy on back desk, find same game in drawer, give me game in drawer" Im not renting these things, im collecting them! lol, - End Rant.
Edit: P.S. I DO check the CDs more often then not, but last two days have been very busy and had to be home for the family in time. Happy Wife = Happy Life.
You don't sound happy when you wrote an entire rant about something that could've been prevented if you had the time to check the discs instead of rushing home to make your wife happy lol
