    Default Gamestop Making a Move in the RIGHT Direction?

    http://www.ebgames.com/gs/landing/pog/

    Just saw this, and hopefully it will start applying to stores in the near future. I think that this could be a good move.

    (*Wasn't sure if this was a brand new thing, or if there was a post(didn't see one))

    Discuss.

    Now we need some Buy2Get1 sales so I can work on my PS2/360/Gamecube collections.

    Seems to fail with Gameboy/Advance category of games.

    This is something that my local PnT has started as well. They transition out most of their non-CIB games with Buy1Get1 deals and other specials. It's nice to see that GameStop has this guarantee, though it's not much of an impact these days (except for handheld games).

    Even if the game comes with art and manual, there's no guarantee they'll be, you know, in good shape.

    Now they need to roll out a customer appreciation program and with that, this and edge card they should be able to do well against the onslaught of digital distribution.

    ebgames.com used to do this years and years ago until gamestop came along and screwed it all up. Good to see it coming back.

    Looks pretty nice, but I'm still a bit weary about how this is implemented. Clicking on the nice little link takes you to the same page you get to when you click preorder regularly. It also doesn't help when all the listings say that cover and manual may not be included. Maybe I have to follow steps to get to it, but then again I never really liked ordering online from Gamestop. Sort of ruins the fun of going into a store and finding a game I've been wanting there.
    I have a sig?

    "Packed with love" is a little more "used" than I really want I think.

    Nice that they are doing this though.

    I was pretty bummed to see the name of that link and then not link to an announcement that Pogs were back and EB was going to sell them.

    I noticed the word too, but didn't think it would have anything to do with it since they're not tied into gaming.

    I actually used to collect those when I was younger.
    Everything in the above post is opinion unless stated otherwise.

    "Does not apply to consoles, accessories, movies or UMD."

    Why doesn't it apply to UMD? Or does it mean UMD movies?

    I find it very interersting. It's definetly a good marketing move. So many times I have seen games in their stores, and it has a totally incomplete game, for full price. I asked myself each time, why would I buy just copy of the game, when I know I deserve everything the game had orginally to offer. I'm wondering when they are going to finally garantee that they won't advertise a game as new on the price sticker, only to discover, it is in new condition, which should be better written as like-new. New means to me, as it does to every other store that sells any kind of product. Once you've opened it, broken the seal, removed tags, etc, it is no longer considered new by that store. Garantee me that Game Flop! (I've had repeated bad experiences with them in the past.)

    I think even the old gamestop.com used to do it, just not for everything.

    So that's what the hole in the disk is for! Silly me, I thought it was for the drive spindle all this time. I always suspected those bastards had tiny peckers!
