Not true I work at gamestop and we keep our games behind the counter in drawers so nope this is false
P.S pokemon x is a great game
@baconator27, its also false because release day without pre-ordering and got pokemon x
@baconator27, I also work at GameStop and can back up your claim. Although we do really push preorders and trades.
@Master Xehanort, At my local Gamestop there's this fat ginger who works there who is one of the best salesmen ever. I'll go in there to buy one game and end up leaving with three games, seven controllers, and two Skyrim DLC's.
@Fear The Norquist, where do you live? That sounds like the other one in my city....
@baconator27, true I just started working but with all the new stuff comming in
@baconator27, yea I also work at game stop your right
@baconator27, I also work at Gamestop. Hi five.
@SimonPetrikov, nice :) high five
@Fear The Norquist, Lmao funny you say that cause my store manager is a ginger and she is so energetic
@baconator27, when I went to gamestop to pick up my gta 5, the guy working there went the back to get it.
@baconator27, why don't they give you a penny for games you sell them? I'm talking the high quality games.
@baconator27, How is the price of a typical new game at Gamestop in your country? In Sweden Gamestop has so expensive games, that you ask yourself how they can get any customers
@Lucidor, well new games are 63.56 tax included that's regular retail price for all new games
@baconator27, that is about 400 kr, a new game on Gamestop cost about 699-799 for consoles on Gamestop and Game, 599-699 on the web and big stores like Media Markt and El-Giganten, often popular games like COD and Battlefield cost 349-399 the first and sometimes second day of release. But with other words is Gamestop in the USA alot cheaper in general than anywere in Sweden
This happened with Skrim. They said they had like fours copies left and I looked in their back room and they literally had boxes of them
@SirPsychoSexy, What is point of doing this? I still can't understand why they lie about how much stock they have...
@Ballin Stalin, to get you to pre order
@SirPsychoSexy, But what benefit does gamestoo get if you pre-order?
@SirPsychoSexy, I'm just hypothesizing, but they would have to save copies for the people who did preorder. They could have had only four more that were not preorders
Such a cute kid. I bet she'd turn into the devil girl in exorcism if she didn't get the game
And if for some ungodly reason you don't like it you can return it for 10% of the price
F*ck you Steve I knew you were lying
I put on lingerie and still haven't gotten my fiancé to look at me since he has gotten the game. We are virgins!!!
What? More reading??....next picture.
I went to gamestop today and traded in 7 games toy story 3, lego Indiana jones and Kung fu panda (came with my console), dishonored, gears of war 3, halo reach, and assassins creed revelation and I was offered 12 dollars and toy story 3 was 7 of those dollars, scumbag gamestop
Stores like best buy do not have the managerial power to order more copies. That's decided by the company that distributes the games to them.
Pokemon Gold Pokemon Sapphire Pokemon Y Pokemon MDB Pokemon Pearl Pokemon fire red. I didn't play the rest and they therefore suck.
@lakewood20, those are in order of best to worst, the greater than sign didn't show up
@lakewood20, You suck for not playing Blue, Red or Yellow.
@SmartAlecks, I always wanted to, my childhood friend had it but never let me watch him play, so I didn't know about it until I got gold version
@lakewood20, Okay. All is forgiven. Look for them on eBay. Or Amazon.
@SmartAlecks, I have red now, but it's just for leisure, I'm not a kid anymore :/ it can't be on my childhood list
@lakewood20, if you're under 20, you're still a rte
@lakewood20, *teen technically.
@SmartAlecks, but I'm in college and there isn't time for gameboy :(
@lakewood20, College sucks. :(
When I got pokemon y, I jizzed in my pants
Which one should I get x or y??
@sexyvampireprincess, definitely X. The mega evo for charizard is way more badass than Y.
@sexyvampireprincess, i love my mega charizard y i dont like the x one if i wanted a black mega id just transfer my shiny from my past games who ive had since firered... the y one has drought sp its fire power turn freakin strong
Pre-Ordering for the extra DLC is useless. If you get the game like within a week after release, its most likely going to be in the case.
Why would they want them to pre order? The store gets the money anyway....
That worker look suspiciously like the guy that works at my towns GameStop...
Why is this pokemon game so big? Is it because it's in 3D?
They do this because that's part of the workers' commission. They get paid also based on preorders made through them.
When GTA V came out I got served faster because I pre-ordered the collectors edition. They literally asked who ordered what and when I said I ordered the collectors edition they moved me to a separate register and I got through faster too.
Off topic, but still related to Pokemon, if you've seen Mewtwo Strikes Back, and the new movie Genesect and the Legend Awakened, you would understand how pissed I am at what they did to Mewtwo. I will never forgive them for that. And he kept evolving into Mewtwo Y.
I work at GameStop and we would never lie to a customer just to get a pre order. Most of out customers don't even preorder anyways. Also I accidentally reported it but I swear that was by accident.
I bought them both digital downloads so.....
Grow up people. No GameStop does this. Period.
Im not really feeling buying neither x or y
Fvck this, we really don't have any power over what how much inventory we get. It's not like we can just order 1000 copies of the same game. There are more games we have to stock, and our stores aren't exactly the size of Costco.
