A lot of customers are complaining about the damaged packaging for Destiny Ghost Edition.
That is what happened to mine from Amazon, sent it back for a full refund.
There was a woman in EB games yesterday complaining that the xbone destiny she got for her son had damaged packaging, she said it looked like it had been cut down one side or something, odd to hear so many problems to do with just packaging.
Sounds like whoever opened up the box cut way too deep into the box.
I didn't bother since it was just the box and nothing inside was damaged. The box is really pretty though so I don't see why they made it so weak with all the stuff they put inside.
Watever happened to days of special editions that come in a tin or metal cases...
It happened to mine, I thought I was unique in this. It's because of the way the box is made, all you have to do is apply a slight amount of pressure to the top of the box and it tears at the corners. It's a real shame, but considering this is the ONLY one I will ever get in my life, I can deal with it.
When you pay a premium price you should be getting premium build quality. Pretty much every CE/LE I've ever gotten has had poor build quality.
Mine was handed to me wrapped in a bubble wrap pocket. It's perfect. Sad to hear that others got damaged product though.
Yeah they were all delivered in that big bubble wrap. They REALLY should have been delivered in an actual box, to take the pressure off the Ghost Edition case.
Yeah my Ghost Edition was pretty badly torn down one side, and I was pretty pissed until they gave me $30.00 off. So in the end it wasn't so bad since even with the torn case it was worth the $120.00 I spent just for the Ghost and the expansion pass... Gotta say I was more pissed it was made so cheaply than I was at the fact that Gamsetop waited so close to the midnight launch to tell me. There was 9 people with the Ghost Edition preordered at my local Gamestop and 7 of them were damaged. Activision being greedy douchebags again so nothing surprising there. Next time I'll just get the limited edition.
Did the ghost toy live up to the hype?The day it was announced was the one day I slept all day and didn't visit any gaming sites so I missed out on it.Should I be mad or happy I saved $50 buying the LE instead?
I think it's cool but after seeing it I do t feel it was not remotely worth $150.00 especially considering how poorly manufactured the whole Ghost Edition is. Loving the game though, and I can't wait for the raids.
There's an Activision warehouse in my town.My friend who works there says.A lot of the boxes were damaged when they arrived there.Not to mention most of the workers just toss them in.
it might actually loose some of its value as a collectible poor business. This was somewhat of a coveted item was it not?
If anything It should boost the value of the ones that didn't get damaged.Because they are even more rare now due to this.
Yeah, preordered it from GAME.uk and received it with damaged box, but received 30pound worth of GAME points and a LE Hoodie worth 60pound, so I am kinda fine... still, it's sad that we receive something we pay for, damaged. Btw, UK people paid 150pound = 270 bucks for a damaged Ghost Edition.
You got a hoodie from Bungie?
My EU version of ghost edition has no damage. And In perfect condition. Mine was packed well In bubble wrap when got delivered to my house. I feel sorry for the people who had there's damage and paid good money for It.
Lol what's with bungie special editions and damage? Halo 3 LE steel case had scratched disc issues. Luckily mine didn't lol
Happened to me :/ I didn't want to return it or exchange it because 1) I want the ghost replica and 2) who knows when they'd have a replacement on hand. So Amazon offered me a 25% refund ($40) which I thought was fair and gladly accepted it. Although I heard some people get refunds of up to 40% off so meh lol, maybe I should have pushed for more. Oh well ;_;
My glacier white ps4 was actually cracked in the corner underneath the sony sign. I was shocked to fond that when I opened it but shouldn't have been surprised because alot of the bundles people were walking out of gamestop with had damaged boxes. Thing is the system still worked perfect. I played it that night then exchanged it the next day.
