Amazon's selection for the B2G1 isn't nearly as comprehensive as TRU's. I find that a little surprising.

My mom works for Sony, and she brought home a copy of "Starhawk BETA"
I quickly slipped it into my trusty PS3, and started playing.

yea lol i kno man, it was not easy at all but i just tried to think about other stuff for a while, listen, its hard to have uncharted 2 infront of you and not open it LOL

Anyway, u made sure they will take back ONLY brutal legend? i mean i clearly asked in the store how i can do the exchange and they told me the only way is if i dont open ANY ANY ANY of the 3 games by any means, she told me if i open one game then i cant exchange any of the games anymore, people on the forum say its not true but god knows i dont want to take a risk and be stuck with 2 "OK" games u kno.. i dont even want NFS Shift or brutal legend so i mean by all means i dont want to get stuck with these games and so thats why i didnt UNSEAL any game ..

I just got a Hori Real arcade pro 3 Fighting stick! man tekken 6 should play awesome with that stick!!

Yea, I answered you in the Hori post too.

I used the same method at the same store last year and it worked for LBP so it should work this time.

I'll be picking up Tekken and Ratchet and Clank with the Best Buy B2G1.

Toys R Us denied my return for MW2. I originally bought NFS Shift and Genji at full price. I was granted U2 free as per the offer. I took Genji back in today, unopened, only to be told the offer was only good for "games currently in stock". I was told I cannot return a purchased game for another game that came out after the sale. Am I the only one?

Looks like I will be returning Genji for "cloudy with a chance of meatballs" or "Up" or "G-Force Hampsters" anyone play any of them? ANy chance I'll get a little satisfaction out of any of them?

Ask to talk to the manager, then if he says that, tell him you're calling customer service, because he's not abiding by the corporate policy. TRU has no policy that you have to "Choose a game that was released before the game purchased", and point it out to him.

He was trying to BS you and get you to go away. In reality, he's just trying to flex his little muscles and feel all big by making **** up on the fly.

If you can tell me how returning an unopened game that says was purchased for $60 on your receipt violates TRU's return policy or is cheating, please do.

I'm all ears.

I would have called the guys bluff and asked for a full cash refund on my $60 game.

I've played Cloudy & Up with my son (7) and both are OK kids games that you can play along with them (or 2 kids can play together). Cloudy has a little more to do & takes longer to finish than Up so I'd probably recommend it first - although the main character's sayings get annoying real fast. Both are easy platinmums if you're into that, but if you don't have kids, I'd look for better options, although my 7 year old really enjoyed both, and I had fun playing a long with him despite some of the repetition.

G-Force is single player I believe which is why we haven't picked it up...

Good luck in getting the exchange working the way you want though...

Because it was part of a package deal. I'm sure if all 3 games are returned unopened they would be happy to give a full refund.

That's not true, it is not listed anywhere in their return policy.

I returned Brutal Legend, got a $64 gift card and bought COD MW2 AND got the promotional $10 gift card on top of that.

Yay!

What Darrell said. They didn't change any of their policies and didn't amend their exchange policy with anything from this promotion too.

It was buy two games at full price and they'll throw in a third for free.

Obviously, a free game has no value so you can't exchange the free one, but the other two are fair game. You bought 2 games, at $60 a piece per and their return policy is what it is.

This is just a case of a employee or manager being a douchebag because he doesn't want to follow something corp allows.

Yup and earlier in the thread, someone said they returned one of the games for a full refund so basically got B1G1, lol.
