Re: Gamestop : Buy without Preorder

I got mine from Gamestop.com with free overnight shipping today. It came at 10:30am too so it was great. But I went to Best Buy today at about 4pm for something else and they had like 30-40 copies just sitting there waiting to be bought!

This. I don't get why people buy from gamestop unless it's a lot closer. Just go to Wal Mart, and don't waste money on a preorder.

That's true, but if you aren't forced to buy at gamestop you will usually find the game at other stores and get bonuses like gift cards with the game. Now I just order on amazon anyways you can get release date shipping and get immediate gift cards off future games, best buy still makes you wait 30 days to get your points

Re: Gamestop : Buy without Preorder

The main reason I go to Gamestop are for the preorder bonuses. Which means I almost never go there for sports games since they usually don't do much for them. Other than that I order almost everything through Amazon. On occasion I use Best Buy but most of my games are now through Amazon with Amazon Prime meaning I'm sure to get it on release day and usually the price is the cheapest.

The primary reason I don't like Walmart is the fact that their employees don't seem to know anything whatsoever about videogames. I have this nightmare I'll order NCAA 11 there and go there and get NCAA 09. Or something like that, LOL.

Re: Gamestop : Buy without Preorder

I live by two Gamestops that are about half a mile from each other, and they never sell out of anything. I used to go there because it's closer to my home than Wal-Mart was at the time, but I haven't stepped foot in one for years.

I never had a problem with them until they said something about being lucky for getting a game without a preorder. I basically told them that they would be lucky if they ever saw me in their store again. Successes of Capitalism and the free market in effect.

Re: Gamestop : Buy without Preorder

Yeah ODogg, I know what you mean. I always open the case once, then double check like "wait, that was the NCAA 11 disc right?" It wasn't NCAA but something like that actually happened to me before. I went to rent Rainbow Six Vegas 2 at blockbuster, when I got home, Rainbow Six Vegas 1 was in the case.

Anyways, yeah I still go to Gamestop, and when they give me the "you should preorder this" stuff I just be a huge ***** sayin "this isn't THAT good."
