Xbox promotional game

I bought a Band Hero Xbox game from ebay and across the front it says 'promotional copy, not for resale'. I don't know much about these games, it's my children I bought it for, but would this be the proper full game and why does it say this or is it just like a demo game or something....? Very confused lol

Any help would be very much appreciated :)

It will be the full game, most likely one that was given to someone to review it, or a competition prize. Whoever you bought it from on eBay had no right to sell it on, I assume they made no mention of it being a promo copy in their auction, and you are well within your rights to complain and get a refund if you so wish.

Not 100% sure but it could be the game was 'bundled' with something else and the seller chose to resell this part of it. It should be the full game though

yeah as others have said it should be the full game.
But could have come part of a deal..or package...not sure if the game that comes in the full band box says that on it.
oh and places like cex would take it if you were to ever sell it in the future.

Its a shop demo copy.

its the full game but they are distributed to stores so that they can demonstrate the game to customers and then generate sales. strictly they shouldnt be sold but then shops would have mountains of older games when they are demonstrating newer ones.

you'll be fine, maybe email the game maker, at their UK address, claim the box and sleeve were damaged in the post, and they may well send you a new box or new sleeve, and that will make it look slightly better :thumbsup:

Thanks, I know it can be bought with the instrument kit (or whatever it's called lol) so most likely the person is probably just selling the game that came with it, it's fully sealed.... thanks for your help everyone :) Happy to know it's the full game :)

if you paid for it via paypal you can claim a full refund as it is not meant to be for resale, paypals policy chaged this year so they actually refund you now and not the seller, some kind of insurance they have for under 100.00 they wont ask you to return the game either :)

You will also find that trading it in will be problematic. Firstly because it has no barcode on the back and secondly because it's against company policy at many outlets.
