    Default This is crazy!!!

    I bought Top Spin yesterday. I wanted to return it because someone else had already gotten it for me. So I call back to check ( I have the reciept, Box+manuels and cd all perfect no scrathes mint condition) and i ask them if i can trade it in for another game. Guess what they tell me? "You can trade it in for store credit 10 dollars". This is complete BS. How can you say that if the person bought it the day before, and they have the reciept and everything, and all they did was tear off the plastic, plus they bought it for 50 wopping dollars. 50 dollars doesnt come easy. they think they can rip us off just like that. they should change their policies. 10 dollars...wow...cheap bast***. i cant beleive this.

    If you sold a twinkie to someone and they opened the wrapper but decided they didnt want to eat it anymore. Would you take it back?

    a TWINKIE and a BOX are 2 extremely different things.

    Maybe so, but the concept isnt. You cant expect a store to take back an open item otherwise we will have more of these gamestop/EB debacles where you think youre buying a new game but you arent.

    Any person would know to sell it on EBAY. You will get at least 30 bucks for it.

    I hate EB in that respect so much. I kind of have to agree with them on this one b/c of this whole piracy issue, but I feel your pain. I have 2 MM3s b/c I got it from someone as a gift, after purchasing it the day before. This was about 2 weeks after the game had come out. They said they'd give me $20 credit, or 17 or something to that extent. I don't like EB. The same thing happened to me with Spiderman, Amped, and Unreal methinks. So, rather, I think the best thing to do is just find someone, someone you can trust(on or off XBA) and just sell it to them for close to/ retail price. Thats what I did a few months ago.

    Why do you need a credit card to sell on Ebay?

    why are they cheap? because they would take back a game which you have opened, played, copied, then taken back?

    thats how they see it mate, whether its true or not

    why? they wont get the full retail worth for it now that its second hand.

    if you had the game twice, why unwrap both of them?

    surely you can take the one you didnt ipen back?

    unless you stupidly opened them both

    ah. hard luck then.

    you should try working in a shop like that. i do - we get people coming in saying the same thing all the time.

    im sure they'd be more than happy to exchange it if it wasnt open, but to them its second hand, and possibly just been used to copy.

    sorry
