Gamestop Warned Me !

So I have been helping a buddy change out the wheel bearings on his car and tonight I was talking about NHL 12 and he offered to buy it for me for helping him out. Cool! So we go over to Gamestop and when I told the guy I wanted NHL 12 he goes:

"O.K. now you know this game has flaws right? It is not our fault and we can't take it back, we have been having a lot of issues with people trying to return it"

LOL....that's pretty pathetic when Gamestop warns you about a game before they sell it to you.

I went ahead and got the game anyway as there really is no other alternative for hockey. I sure hope this freezing stuff isn't as bad as people say it is.

Oh well, fixin to crank it up and see what happens...

This thread wasn't intended to be about the game freezing issues, it was about the Gamestop employee basically trying to talk me out of buying the game...

On a positive note... played 2 games and so far everything had been running smooth....so far so good

I must be lucky. I had 3 freezes in the early release build the whole entire weekend, I've had none in 5 games of my BeAGM so far. On PS3.

my apologies for my mistake on the meaning of the thread .....I guess I just have never experienced a gamestop employee trying to talk me out of a game.

Re: Gamestop Warned Me !

I think it's just the fact that most people really wanted to play NHL and can't wait for a patch and the people at gamestop are just annoyed at people trying to return it, so they'd rather stop having people complain to them over making sales.

Gamestop employees don't make money if someone buys a game, so they're just doing what's less annoying for themselves. Can't really blame them too.

Re: Gamestop Warned Me !

I stopped buying from Gamestop. There was an awful version of Tiger Woods a few years back that froze constantly. They wouldn't refund but just give me a new disc which was pointless. Future Shop will give refunds when EA releases their crappy software.

I am 3 for 4 on freezes tonight on my PS3 btw.

Re: Gamestop Warned Me !

Ive had MANY experiences with GS employees trying to "Talk" me out of buying games. Primarily based on their own tastes or review scores.
I don't deal with GS anymore, not when Best Buy will take the games you buy from them in trade and Toys r us does trades too.
I buy my games from Target, Best Buy, Toys R us and Ive even found OLD great ones at Kmart even, basically ANYONE but GS.
And they would CONSTANTLY try to get me to put money on preorders and buy their magazine with its rewards card, its always just a very pushy experience which I dont care for AT ALL aside from the ludicrous trade in prices that they give...Bye Bye GS...

Re: Gamestop Warned Me !

Actually, I prefer NOT to even go to GameStop, but it is the closest to me so it's the most convenient. The reason I prefer not to go there is like you said, some of the employees can be really pushy. Like last night, the dude acted like it was a problem giving me an unopened game, like I was putting him out....oh well, too bad !
