I think you need to update to your post.  There is absolutely no evidence that google play codes OR XML will redeem in HD so saying may or may not is completely misleading.    I know it sux as a seller that all these codes were dropped to SD, but some buyer should not have to pay for that problem. 

I had an XML code transfer as HD recently (within the past couple weeks after the supposed changes).  I'm not sure if it was originally supposed to be an HD code, though.  It was for Diary of A Wimpy Kid: Dog Days

Slim pickings at stores I went to, however, I found Wind Waker still in the case with a Just Dance $59.99 tag on the shelf.  The employee was surprised when I asked him to price check it and it rang up as $9.98  It makes me wonder how many other clearance items I've walked by in cases, etc. that were never marked properly, etc.

I dunno why people prefer using paypal, had I used my credit card (which I usually do) it would have went right off my temp hold after the merchant (rakuten) cancelled. Used paypal which I rarely do and now I'm out 20 bucks for a cancelled order (thus far) with no refund in sight lol

Well, aside from the obvious problems that can occur like you had, the biggest plus for me on Paypal is ease of use.  It makes a lot of websites feel as user friendly as something like Amazon for making a purchase.  Any site that takes Paypal generally allows me to go from cart to checkout in one or two clicks instead of having to fill out a bunch of fields for shipping address, billing address, credit card details, etc.  I love it for that and get slightly annoyed now when I have to pull out my credit card for a site that doesn't take it.  A lot of people tout the buyer protection stuff, but for me it's mostly just laziness that I appreciate.

I'm not saying it is the case, but if they -did- have significant backend issues that stopped them from having a sale for some reason, they're sure as hell not going to publicize it.  Why would they set themselves up for ridicule like that?  Easier just to let it slide under the radar and give us the sale a week late or whatever, under a different name.

 

As an example of the type of glitch that could happen, it could be that they discovered a issue with the interface that lets them add sale items.  Anything already scheduled and in the database might still go up as planned, but they can't add anything new.

 

Again, i'm not saying this happened.  But I have been in similar situations in the real world with large websites where we just sort of slide big problems under the radar, with the public none the wiser.

 

Normally, I'd say that's extremely unlikely.  But so is a major online presence completely ignoring BF and CM other than a weeklong sale that predated both.  Couple that with today's extremely lackluster showing, and it becomes a slight possibility that something is screwy in screwsville.

I always get the feeling that Sony's backend is a few guys in a basement running around putting out fires.  Sometimes literally.  So many pieces of the PlayStation division (especially web-related services from the store, blogs, downloads, and even if the game servers) feel very duct tape and piece-meal.

 

I know it's tough to make it look smooth and professional and easy to criticize, but they, so much more than many other companies, seem to show their seams and weaknesses.
