Gamestop HATES IT When You Cancel Pre Orders!


  1. Why would only putting 5 dollars down on a game hurt the industry? If i notice the game not looking that good i just get my money back. If it gets canned i get my money back. also if everyone followed what you are saying and everybody waited a week to buy the game then no one would have the game and there would be no reviews or anything like that. Obviously that will never happen but people have to buy the games brand new. pre order or not. if anything it's hurting the consumer if they dont like the game. ive pre ordered every game i have owned. never had any issues. except the last 2 call of dutys given the exception to MWR.

  2. Except for CD Projekt Red games. After the Witcher 3, Cyberpunk 2077 is looking to be awe-sum!

  3. I'm Pre-Ordering Legend of Zelda Breath of The Wild Today (1 week before the initial release)

  4. I only ever pre order Zelda, and only when the game gets a release date. No other game I'll pre order.

  5. i only pre order when it a game that i know that i really want i have only ever pre ordered games 2 time this year i mostly likely going to pre order 3 games this year because i thinl these games might be hard to find after it comes out like red dead 2 most likely will be

  6. Well preordering means they have to preserve a copy for you no matter what if you pay right off the bat and have your receipt

  7. In the early 2000s when you had to obtain a cart or disk in order to install and play said game, pre ordering made since. I lived in an area when I was young where I had to drive 50 miles to get to a Software etc. to buy PC games. On top of that there was only the one store because the next one was another 25 miles away. That's why I pre ordered back in the day. I ensured that a copy of the game I wanted was going to be there and I could plan to make a trip to the store and pick my copy up. Now days with digital distribution, and being able to buy games nearly anywhere there isn't a valid reason to do so. Copies of games aren't in short supply their aren't limited places to buy said games and if worse comes to worse you can buy digital. In recent years with games like Aliens: Colonial Marine, Duke Nukem Forever, Watch Dogs, No Man's Sky and other games I've gotten to the point where I don't even buy post launch until I've read and seen a lot of reviews re regarding the title I'm interested in. It keeps me out of the position of buyer's remorse. I wasn't one of those people who were demanding a refund for No Man's Sky. Pre ordering is to me a practice that started for a good reason that we don't need now. Last game I pre ordered was the collector's edition of Diablo 3 (PC). Last game I bought on day 1 was The Division. I didn't pre order, I walked into GameStop and bought one of the big stack of copies they had. Of course if they had been out of copies there were 2 more stores less than a mile apart that I could have gone to. If that didn't work I could have bought digital.

  8. Great video! I really think there are many other things wrong with the game industry besides this preordering ordeal. I mean, we have 10 year olds playing M rated games. I guess ESRB ratings don't even matter anymore after the purchase to many consumers. But in terms of this video, I do believe that patience is key when buying video games.

  9. these kids had my mom go pick up a full pre oder game but she dosent have my last name on her id she also had the receipt keep in mind she dosent live close to the game stop and expect us to drive there and wait in a huge line again because of a game release

  10. pre-ordered pokemon sun and moon, never been let down by a pokemon game. especially when theres a demo

  11. So I go by GS to pick up Battlefield 1 today, four days after it's released. I don't pre-order for the very same reasons you've mentioned here. However I get to the store and the guy says they are all out of the game except for pre-orders. I thought it was bullshit, but fuck it. Game stop doesn't order enough, fine, I'll give someone else my money. So I go home and look it up online on their website it says they have it available. So I call this douche bag back at GS, being completely civil and respectful, I ask him if they are all out except for pre-ordered games waiting to be picked up, why does it show in stock. His answer still baffles me. Because it's showing the pre-orders in stock, but if I sold those I wouldn't have any on reserve for those who pre-ordered. If they pre-ordered, wouldn't they have taken those out of inventory? I think he's full of shit personally.

  12. i pre ordered mafia 3 and i loved it, been a fan of the whole series and the pre order bonus was worth it in my opinion

  13. I used to buy all my games there, several new ones a month, let my pro membership lapse, and buy from Amazon now

  14. some of this is easy, I had a GameStop employee argue with me, wouldn't give me my money back, for literally 50 cents of trade in credit I had

  15. Does anyone remember when this video was titled "GameStop doesn't like it when you cancel preorders"?

    Pepperidge Farm remembers.

  16. I work at game stop and he reason he didn't like it is because it sucks and it's so complicated and takes forever

  17. what a fucking spoiled rich kid , I just got out of the pool … who cares … and then cancelling a pre order for 6dollar …

  18. ….im watching this and literally almost gets to the point of the transaction of buying the used games (where he is reacting) and gets side trackted, but never returns what happens next…..wtf is this
