Found 20th Jun 2008
Hi all, am really annoyed so am just voicing my opinion.

Yesterday, I espied "The Witcher" collectors edition, and as it was the same price as the normal edition, I decided to go for it. However it was only later that I found out that it was contained inside the promotional box (the one that was on the shelf) which was tatty as hell, was missing things such as the soundtrack cds etc as well as the posters.

Meh, am fairly annoyed. Ive been left with a tatty box, the artwork book is bent and tatty and im missing stuff.

Bloody game

GAME dont sell preowned PC games. The annoying thing is, that the fellow said it was the promo box, and that he would go into the backroom to get me a replacement box :x

LOL
not so 1337 now are you lmao

call them and tell them?? ask em to get you a replacement??

Buying new games instore at GAME/EBs/Gamestop is all wrong. As you know, GAME has that "Not satisfied? Return within seven days for a full refund!" guarantee. This lets GAME basically resell a game that someone has held for almost a week as 'new'.

I've often purchased 'new' games instore from these retailers and found the discs have scratches. GAME do take adequate care of their discs, so it's not the employees putting scratches on the 'new' discs -- the scratches get there from 'unsatisfied' customers who return the game within a week, and these discs get sold to you as 'new'.

Your best bet is to buy them online -- i've purchased hundreds of new games through the online store and only about two or three have been clearly 'from the shelf'. However 99% of the time, they're still in shrink-wrap, straight from GAME's storage factory.

:P

LOL, because I expect to be given what I have paid for? Sorry, next time ill take a laptop in to make sure it works before I leave the shop :roll:

Same happened with Blockbuster.

Bought Oblivion Game of the Year, got home, exactly the same as the normal copy, just the case says "Game of the Year" !

They had "Lost" all of the additional content which makes it game of the year !

Hahaha..... yeah, they should have the same policy for console games. Buying a 'new' console game instore is playing Russian Roulette with your discs.
