You got any intel on pro days? I gotta get rid of this stupid $15 cert.

Nothing yet,  stores dont typically even find out anything until about 2 days before.

always been that way, it's still clearance.  just makes it qualify for clearance promos when they run them.

speaking of which, what are the upcoming G2L titles, anybody?

None are guaranteed until announced which is generally 1-2 weeks before release

I emailed them on Saturday morning after giving up on the phone. No reply yet! Haha they have really checked out.

before the expansion last year email reply was a 4-6 month wait, I've seen 8months before.  email is only answered if they aren't on the phones.   phone wait time is hitting 3-4 hours now.

So quick dumb question is it safe to buy a used PS5 copy of Spider-Man MM Ultimate Edition? Is there anything that would have came on codes or is everything from both Spider-Man games on the one disc?

Thanks

It was code,  so used its just regular game.

The last one I enjoyed was Vice City and my opinion of it was definitely skewed by nostalgia. Never played San Andreas. Tried 4 and didn’t care that much. I didn’t even get to meet the psycho main character but i didn’t like the tone of the game. Maybe I’m older and my tastes have changed. Saints Row definitely put GTA in the “I don’t care” category. I love 1-4. The humor, escapism and absurdity is more my wheelhouse now than some gritty as hell story.

This is me as well.   Although I only cared for Saints row 3/4.

Haha that $900 is probably the bundle they will force. Comes with 20 amiibo, 10 sets of Pokémon cards, 3 Pokémon sweaters, 5 socks, 2 sticker sets, and 1 NFT.

It's not, it wasn't supposed to be reservable in store and has since been turned off.  Communication from field leaders is they will fulfill orders but would wait and see, everyone might be getting cancellation calls.

Yup,  and unfortunately it doesn't really look like it'll get better either way.  The defenders keep pointing out "it's only a beta" but that's not really a thing, it's just a live test environment.  That's how GS launches everything.  PowerUpRewards was in "beta" for over 5 years.  Nothing changed when it "launched", it's just an excuse for them to tinker with things with little notice.

I can already tell you, benefit of block chain is everything is public.  So far their processing fees are around ~440k of revenue, but thats largely from the initial hype and launch, the last 2 days have been like $950 and $1300ish in fees.  so it isnt even a low volume store at this point already,  great investment of 100mil there all right

did they just completely shut down chat help?  No matter what time I try to chat, they're offline.

Yup.   They massively downsized all the expansions they made last year.   Email is also back to the several months wait time,  call if you want help nothing else will be timely

Just called and confirmed that NBA 2k23 has the TIV bonus. From what I've heard from a GS employee is that the trade in bonuses start 3 days before and run for about a week to ten days after.

Edit: Apparently it’s only working on the WNBA version but should be all versions.

This is wrong and they just made it up.  what is current generally changes on Sundays and can run for however long they want,  sometimes its around the 14 days, sometimes its a month or two, depends on vendor agreements.

Are controllers part of the trade in bonus for the 30% preorders?

No, games only.

 

Do I receive any bonus for renewing PowerUp Rewards?

5k points

I never used my august coupon and went to a store tonight around 8pm. My profile showed no coupon in store so the manager just manually took off $5 for me since he could see I had no purchases for the month of august. Maybe the coupon disappears early on the last day of the month?

correct.  it rolls over around 6/7pm-ish, probably off GMT or something never bothered to check directly
