I think it was aimed at members that hadn't been in in a while. I'm a member but rarely go into the store and got one.

I bought a game in-store about a week before getting my $10 voucher via email.

I was just in GS and the SL was telling people that they are only getting enough copies of upcoming games to cover preorders. Apparently they will not be getting extra copies of even big releases like Cyberpunk, Valhalla, etc.

This, for sure. For example, employee at my GS told me if I don't pre-order "Ghost of Tsushima", chances are they won't have any extra copies, at least not right away. Not sure if that's just one of their tactics to encourage you to pre-order or not but this seems to vary from store to store. With TLOU2, I know some stores only got their pre-orders and some got quite a few extra.

My store is in St. Louis County with the same ordinance but while the workers are wearing masks and gloves, they aren't forcing others to wear masks.

Here in Texas, the GS I went to today was very well run. Everyone required to have masks and they had floor spots marked off every six feet where you had to stand in line. Our area has been hit very hard by the virus, so I get it.

I ordered Final Fantasy VII and the case came with Monkey King instead... This was obviously done on purpose. Why would they even do this?!

The people at Gamestop have a bizarre sense of humor.

I just got my brand new last of us 2 copy and it's open and gutted (getting returned). Got my used resident evil 2 remake and it's got some white round sticker around the disc hole so that's gotta get exchanged too. First times I've had issues like this w them and I've done a shit load of online orders since the lockdown

Wow...given how recently TLOU2 was released, to already get a shipped New copy opened is really poor on GS's part.

 

I ordered a Brand New game over Black Friday with them (Wasteland 2 Directors Cut for the Switch) and it arrived opened (but not gutted). Gamestop has an interesting definition of what "new" means. Always thought that opened "new" games were restricted to their infamous 'last display copy' in-store but it does seem to apply to some online purchases as well. It's one thing to be informed in-store that your new copy is going to already be opened, but online, where you have no idea whether you're getting an opened copy or a sealed copy...that's another matter.

 

I try to restrict my online GS purchases to pre-orders. That way, I assume it won't arrive opened. At least...I hope so...sheesh.
