BestBuy Will Install PS3 Version of Portal 2 For You

It seems that BestBuy's programs are getting a little out of hand these days. A shopper took a picture of the PlayStation 3 version of Portal 2 and was amazed at what the store BestBuy was offering consumers.

Thank god some one is around for these complex things.

WildArmed2604d ago

Aye, next thing you know you have to play the game yourself!

Thank God for Best buy.

Hopefully they can fix my ps3. It keeps saying its under maintenance. :(

Nah Bestbuy cant help you with anything thats actually complicated....unless you pay a couple hundred bucks.

Oh and dont mind them snooping around all your personal information and stealing anything worthwhile. I know several people that got their entire music library that way....

The worst part is that Portal 2 doesn't even require an install.

I don't even know what this means. This is def for the lowest common denominator. What a waste. This means that some idiots are gonna lug their ps3's in for no reason. What a waste and dumbass people will fall for it too.

Christopher2604d ago

But... Portal 2 doesn't require an install... *confused*

Could be a crafty employee stealing the codes for pc/mac downloads.

Quick way to make a buck.

Great news! Cuz i got it today but can't get the plastic off :/ I'll call them in the morning. Thanks

But the one I work at doesn't do this for games at all...And haven't since I've been there. We do offer Installation/Update for GPS units, but that covers the USB charge cable as well. We even do E-Reader updates and stuff like that for free sometimes as well

First time I've seen this though..

EDIT: Comment way below says those same cases are used for PC software. Makes sense now.

xAlmostPro2604d ago

Im not saying this doesn't seem dumb, however.

Remember the PS3 version has steamworks and alot of people have actually had issues setting it up and connecting to the PC steam account also..(before PSN went down) just saying, that's probably what the install means.

However i dont really care, we don't have gamestop over here

That's not all, Best Buy also offer protection/warranty against scratch PS3 disc. (I'm serious.)

Raptura2604d ago

So does GameStop.. What's your point?

helghast1022604d ago (Edited 2604d ago )

Anyone that falls for these scams probably deserve it.. my god Best Buy are ridiculous.
Blu-Ray Discs are damn near impossible to break, short of snapping them in half.
I literally keyed and put a knife to one of my shitty games and it still worked, they're that goddamn durable

knowledge4lfe2604d ago

whenever i buy from best buy and they ask if i want to buy the protective plan and tell them there is no point. blu-ray disc are damn near unscratchable. and they always look at me with a stupid face and say "really?i didn't know that" idiots

Mikeyy2604d ago


Blu-rays are almost unscratchable...

They have protective layers, you live under a rock?

maxcer2604d ago

who scratches disc's in the first place? unless your a 6yr old kid that throws his collection of games around the living room I don't see the argument.

mugoldeneagle032604d ago

It's only $5.99 for games and guarantee's you a replacement for a year.

And you wanna know the best part about it? It's completely optional. So your allowed to say "No" to it if your asked...
