    @Kangoo They really need to abolish their incorrect advertising then.

    Must be the first game in history that a pre-owned game is not 2 less then the new version.
    They sometimes seem to charge more for the privilege of buying a preowned game, even... ;)

    To be honest I think you'd be better deciding never to shop in Lewisham again.

    Or in fact go there at all!

    But you get more for your money if you buy secondhand!

    There are extras such as pubes or left over weed fragments from when the previous owner used the manual to roll with.

    Good news! Gamestation (still undergoing the brand change there) in Dartford honoured the CEX price match with no problem whatsoever. Good guys in there. Hope the takeover doesn't change them.

    How's there delivery for pre-order these days? They always used to get pre-orders to me the day before prior to their issues.


    I pre-ordered far cry 3 from them recently, and got a despatch email from them on sunday. Still no sign of it, so I'm beginning to wonder if some thieving postie is playing my copy. :(

    Rightio, the postie has apparently been past and still no Far Cry 3. I reckon someone has liberated it while it's been somewhere in the postal system, so I guess it's not their fault.

    :(

    Now to wait for 10 working days to see if that's the case before I can register my non-receipt with Game and finally get another copy posted out.

    Bah. Hopefully it'll arrive before xmas!

    If you live in Wembley then the postal service will have "misplaced" it.

    Thieving cunts.

    I notice GAME have stuck there 'sale' stickers on boxes now. A giant blue sticker, that completely fails to cover up the old purple one, says 'Now only 39.99!'. The old purple sticker says '29.99'.

    If I go back, i'm taking a pic and tagging them in it.

    I must say I was a bit surprised when I bought a pre-owned copy of inFamous the other day, not because it was in decent nick and only required a light cleansing, more that I "unlocked" two achievements on my GAME account by doing it that they notified me by email.

    The Stick Twiddlers story is pretty bizarre but not so bizarre that I can't see it happening, I expect it'll be for other retailers around the world as well like GameStop. Daft idea though.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    Stood in the cold being mocked my drunks at kicking out time, while people who ordered online have been playing the game for the last 12 hours already.

    I traded 4 games into GAME today. When I left I realised that the had not given me the bonus 10 their advertisement outside quoted. So I went back and complained.

    The guy behind the counter told me it was included but the receipt and basic arithmetic destroyed that argument. He then said he had put a code in and this had added money to each of the trades. I questioned this and got him to scan the games again without the code. (Sure enough same total).

    He then called a meeting in the back room and his boss made him pay 10 of his own money to give me a gift voucher. At that point I actually felt sorry for the guy. (Still accepted the voucher though).

    His boss seems like a giganto cunt, especially when the problem is so easy to rectify. :/

    He paid with his credit card. It was light blue in colour.

    I was told that as the transaction was completed and signed for I could not retrospectively be given the bonus 10.

    I did not argue but neither did I leave the till and a queue formed behind me.

    I should clarify that I was not in the meeting. I was still waiting at the till.

    I wouldn't have accepted the voucher if it meant he had to pay for it. It's the stores responsibility, not his bank account. It's easy to make mistakes in retail, and that one was staggeringly easy to fix without a total cunt of a boss demanding such a harsh punishment.

    I'd have demanded the store pay for it. It would have come out of their pockets had the transaction gone through properly anyway so the poor lad got screwed by his boss fuck-up or not. Why wasn't the 10 added automatically as part of the till's calculation anyway.

    Why the hell should companies take all the praise when the staff do well, but fob off any responsibility when a staff member makes an inevitable mistake?

    Bought something from them for the first time in ages and suffered the classic 'brand new game not working due to being left loose in drawer and getting scratched' issue. When I took it back they didn't have another copy so the guy cleaned the disc, which must have amounted to sticking some fluid on it and giving it a quick wipe cos it only took a minute and came back with all the scratches still intact, so guessing they don't use a buffing machine.

    Still didn't work (surprise) so had to go back again and pick another game. I can understand needing to have a few non-sealed copies so they can have boxes out on the shelves, but I don't understand why it's such a stretch to get some zip seals and put them in so the discs aren't left to rattle around.
    They should be getting display cases specifically for that purpose so there's no excuse.

    Besides the major console manufacturers told all retail stores they have to stop opening the seals anyway. So might be worth contacting the publisher/console manufacturer and them what that store's 'policy' is with regard to new games.

    GAME have been pretty good with selling factory sealed boxes on new games recently.

    Was it an older and/or rare game.

    Anyone else noticed Game putting their prices up recently?

    Pretty much all the recent releases (Crysis 3, Metal Gear Rising) are going for 42.99.

    The new Tomb Raider, which is 32ish everywhere else, is 40 in Game.



    Like the thread title says : bunch of cunts!

    It's not just Game, I've noticed it in Blockbuster too. I wonder if publishers are pushing for a higher selling price to net a bit more profit in this time of low software sales.

    Either way, idiots. It just makes me more inclined to shop online.

    GAME seemed to have introduced shopping achievements/trophies. Its been AGES since I bought anything but I did take advantage of the PS+ year sub for 20. I've now earned points for "first transaction" and there are others for downloading their app and for trading in 5/10/25/100 games, each with more points and a shitty name and icon. Its the end of the world you know.

    If this has been going for 2 years and I'm late, then so it goes. I can't be doing with this life in the fast lane stuff like some of you crazy kids.

    @Lotos8ter It was introduced a couple of months back, I believe, I bought something just before they sent out e-mails and got notified I'd made my "first transaction" which seemed really odd seeing as how long I've had an account with them. Absolutely no plans to get the trade-in "achievements", I think it's pretty safe to say.

    Yeh same happened to me (first transaction bonus despite me having my reward card for over 10 years).

    I don't think the "achievements" are that bad an idea. Doesn't concern me at all, but I imagine some younger people may like them.

    Their trade-in price match is stupidly generous. Though if they can shift the stock at those silly prices I guess they may as well. Got MG Rising and Tomb Raider from ShopTo for 31.85 each, had each for a fortnight, got Game to pricematch Cex's 30 and add a quid, so having two new releases for two weeks cost me 85 pence each. Mental.

    They get allocated retroactively but only after you use your card agains as far as I can work out. My account was dormant for ages but I bought NFS MW just before Chrimbo and my emails went nuts. Ended up with a tenner's worth of PSN credit though :-D
