GS CE; Worried?

Posts: 53
Should I be worried....

My parents wanted to buy me D3 CE for my birthday and I gave them the link to Amazon but they ended up pre-ordering online for in-store pickup at their local GS...

How the hell that happened is beyond me. Guess I just have to wait and see if I actually end up getting the CE or not.

P.S.
Not worried about not having a present on my actual birthday Mar. 8 as I'm in my mid twenties so to still be getting a birthday present from my parents is a nice bonus.

You're lucky, my parents stopped giving me gifts once I turned 4.

Other than the Midnight release of Sc2, I avoided GS with a fury. I honestly despise the company now, so much so, that I am avoiding going there again. To a degree, I am sure you will be fine. But there will be a chance it will be opened already by the time you get there.

I for one ordered from Amazon, I'd rather have it come a day or two after release than deal with Gs,

I preordered the Starcraft CE from Gamestop and it was a-okay (I didn't even go to the midnight release).

I've also preordered several games from there with no complications. I see no reason as to why they should not have it.

Just look around and will find out why gs is so bad. They practice rather unethical practices, especially when it comes to taking home games, opening them, and games being scratched for some unknown reason when they are suppose to be new.

I am not saying every Gs is bad, but there are just too many times there have been problems. Just remember the Deus Ex debacle, oh the bad publicity they got lol.

Yeah this is what I'm worried about. I'm sure the Deus Ex thing is a rare in that they took stuff out but I have gotten games from them in the past that had scratched discs on a new PC game...

I've also heard of them overselling the CE of games before like airliners do for seats on a plane. The difference is the airline company will give you tickets to fly anywhere in the states for free and GS will graciously let you buy the non-CE version of the game... Doesn't really make up for it :-/

I guess there is nothing I can do at this point but pray and hope that it actually makes it into my hands.

Go into the gamestop in question, meet the manager who runs the midnight events. Talk with him a bit, get on friendly terms and when the release date is set verify with him that corporate isn't requiring them to modify any contents of the CE case/your box will be untampered with. If you take the time to know the guy they are usually good about it.

If the manager is a jerk, get your pre-order moved to a different store.
