One consumer's viewpoint and a call to vote with your wallet.
Such a silly idea.... Even if Onlive is a competitor, be a good sport and allow it in one of the, what, 10 games that utilize the concept? GameStop is digging its own grave at this point.
Took this person long enough to realize that GS isn't the way to go!
I'm surprised at this lol would of thought most ppl wouldnt shop there.
Did they consider telling customers that the code was for the OnLive techno club in Atlantic City before doing this?
I agree. How can I ever be certain again that my new-game purchases from GameStop aren't missing codes or coupons? Customer trust forever ruined.
Just dont buy an opened "display box" game labled new thats how you will be certain they pulled that trick on me once..........ONCE
Depriving customers of the best experience is the worst kind of corporate desperation.
I bet if they took the coupons out they still sold it as new.
They did......sniff sniff i smell LAWSUIT!!!
There really should be a class action suit against Gamestop if there hasn't been already.
we as core gamers make up for so little of gamestop. Its the casuals and soccer moms who go to gamestop and when they walk in they are told buy used and but our $15 GS card and save 10% power to the players that slogan is so wrong its like the CEO of GS laughing at core gamers. if you are a gamer buy from any where buy gamestop i hope what they did with dues ex someone sues them
Ya thats pretty dumb. I would of thought that the retailers arent allowed to change something like that as part of some contract or something with the publisher. I guess not.
Last thing I picked up at Gamestop in the past 5 years was infamous 2 hero edition because it was 60.00 Can't stand Gamestop and I've voted with my wallet for a long time now.
Meh doesn't bother me that much, mistakes were made on both sides... time to move the heck on from these dang stories and find something new to talk about. Onlive has had enough publicity over this already...
Somebody works for gamestop ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ :p
No, I just have never had an huge issue with GS, and I don't like OnLive. Unlike a majority of people here, I can see that both GS and Square Enix were in the wrong. It's time to move on... And I'm happy with the job I have as it pays more than GS... :P
Gamestop is BS.
http://www.amazon.com Do i need to say more? Pay no tax on a new game priced at $59.99 so you save yourself a few dollars their. Then if you preorder and want it on release date + $.99, so in the end you would pay $60.98 for a new release. Also on preorders you do not have to pay till the game ships. It is not much but it is something and you still get deals like $10-$20 credit. You can still trade in games to if you wish.
target or best buy for me i hate waiting for the mail to play games not wait for them for days sometimes weeks
Huh? Same day delivery, where are you getting weeks from?
costs extra money for that im not willing to pay more than the sales tax plus i still have to wait for it and weeks cause ive ordered items before they said 3-5 business days and it took 2 weeks
shut up unless you live in a state with no sale tax its never gonna be cheaper. 61 dollars on day ONE by amazon. If you live in most states its from 7- 12 percent tax. So your looking at 64 minimum at a store
As an Amazon Prime member I can get any game I want overnight for less than I will pay at Gamestop with tax.
OpenGL i agree i got amazon prime and its a god send. You can easily get it for free with a EDU email address. Then after that you get it for like $40 a year, so if you buy a lot from amazon like me it is well worth it. Cpt_kitten I respect where you choose to buy your games, Best buy actually has some good deals now and then. I remember getting Dragon Age Origins right when it came out for $40. So from time to time Best buy has some nice deals along with target but you gotta be smart to pin point them. You must of just been very unlucky to get a game that late from amazon. Unless it was from another seller selling it on the amazon website.Because I never bought something and had to wait 2 weeks hell barely even a week i ever waited.
I wish I shopped at GameStop so I could stop shopping at GameStop in a huff.
...It's true; A few of the limited editions I purchased from GS was skimp. Once, they even sent me to another store a few miles away, just to retrieve some vouchers that should've been included in my package. & they play on your intelligence; On more than one occasion, they tried to sell me unpackaged games & claimed that it's brand new...I get so pissed, I just look @ them & don't reply. I've been unpackaging games since they came in laminated paper boxes, I know that the PLASTIC MUST BE SEALED AROUND THE GAME IN ORDER FOR IT TO BE SOLD AS NEW & ONCE BROKEN REDUCES IN VALUE.
I quit going to GameStop for a long time now.. I hate them so much because things like these they've been doing for so long.
i dont get why people buy games at gamestop even before this when places like walmart and amazon sometimes give you 20 bucks credit towards your next video games purchase when you preorder....
I think they did this with KZ3. I didn't get the reclaimed territory map pack in my copy. Luckily I got it free from that Edge website that gave it away
I stopped buying from them a long time ago. When my wife picked up 2 games for me that came un-wraped I asked why she got it used it's was probably only a few bucks difference then she said no it's new.... I was pissed! Charged me full price for an open game.. I dont care if it was never sold it could have been the copy that got passed around to emplyees. It happened 2 times and will never happen again I made sure that if I can't game my self my wife won't get it at gamestop.
Gamestop is only good for...actually, nothing. I can't do Amazon thanks to the thieves at my local post office, but everywhere else usually have better deals. Gamestop offers dlc...every other retailer offers discounts and special offers. Hell, even Best Buy has caught up to Gamestop, and surpassed them. There Gamer mag usually has a few hundred bucks in coupons and special deals. All GS has is assholes behind a counter.
I've had Gamestop on my black list for a long long time, and this just adds to my long list of reasons why. I also converted my brother-in-law to boycott it as well.
hey guys well i do shop at gamestop allot . you can find allot of the older games there used for dirt cheap but sometimes i go to a gamestop that dont know me and some little punk tries to be a smart a$$ "know it all" but they really dont push me into $hit (im 6'4 315lbs and my max bench is over 405lbs my arms are 22inches) so i kinda scare the little punk geeks sometimes hehe but usually im really cool cause they all know me at most but theres this one that i went to were this kid tried to get me to preorder mortal kombat and hed throw in kratos as a pre order bonus? i wanted to slap him hard for trying to play me for a fool. later at that same gamestop they were pressuring my wife to pre order this ds game for my son claiming that if she didn't there would be no more copies in the store ? all in all they are cool like i said most know me and we have cool conversations but you do get the pushy ones sometimes but you CAN say NO it always works for me haha
