i think they have to refund a pre-order.. did you talk to the manager? if so they are f***ing bastards. the last time i pre-ordered a game it was Zelda: The ocarina of time at Best Buy (the gold version!)and i couldn't make it there to pick it up till the weekend, it came out like tuesday or wednesday, and the bastards SOLD MY copy!! i was like WTF did i pre-order/reserve it for if you don't even honor it?? i have never bothered to pre-order ever again. I have also never purchased another game from Best Buy after that.

Well the only good thing about Best Buy would have to be the fact that they are the first to drop prices. They said I could have gotten my refund if I didnt tell the dude I was gonna get it somewhere else....I think he is full of shit though. Lets see what he tries to pull tommorow when I go in.

Its on like donkey kong bitch lol.

ttyl.

I've always wondered what happened when you pre-order a game and the place you pre-ordered it from gets it slower than everyone else.

What is EB's return policy? Can you buy a copy elsewhere, take the copy from EB, then return it unopened?

Sorry to hear they're trying to screw you, bro! Hope you get it straightened out!

They arent trying to screw me. At least I hope not. Im just not the most patient man ya know. They garanteed it for tommorow and they arent holding up thier side of the deal. So I'll get that refund and take it to Blockbuster....but then theres an asshole that works there too. He was disrepectful to my mommy lol....so I threw MGS3 at him when I was gonna buy it from them and then went to wally world and bought it there instead....ever since then he is still a prick, I'll have him fired sooner or later.

ttyl.

you could have someone else they don't know go in there with your reserve and then bitch like mad when they don't get their game, then maybe you get your refund + something free Razz

Got it....this game sure does put the RE series back into the driver seat for horror games. The RE series is back to prominence!

I use to work there with all my friends. Let me tell you EB does try to rip people off. Do not ever buy a NEW game from them if it is open in any way, cause we were able to take the games home and play them then resell them like if they were new.
