Why not buy from Amazon like everyone else in the world? For someone that has bad experiences at Gamestop... why the fuck do you keep going back there?

This.

I haven't been to a Gamestop in years...

I do that with art books a lot actually.  My local Chapters (Canadian book retailer) had the Bioshock Infinite and Last of Us artbook at $43.99 each!!  In front of the shelf, I went on my phone and hit up Amazon and ordered them both for $20 less than the in store price.

In terms of retailer though, I like the Indie game store I hit up.  Friendly, get stuff early, and give me good heads up and good conversation.

Because shipping charges can go fuck themselves sideways. I still prefer on site purchases over internet shopping when applicable. I see my product as I buy it, I deal with actual people, and if something goes wrong, it's infintely harder to hang up on me in person when I show up and complain.

For something this large in price, I am much more interested in aquiring it in person and dealing with people instead of automated services and programs.

Edit: As for the gamestop thing, powerup rewards is pretty much the only reason I bother with them still. I got 8000 points accrued, and after the ps4 purchase it will probably jump to more like 15k.

Oh come on, Amazon isn't exactly some fly-by-night operation.  Their customer service is excellent.  Almost certainly better than Gamestop's...

And with regards to shipping, I <3 Amazon Prime.

I'm not sure how your day one preorder of a ps4 which was sold out the same day as it was announced does me any good now. I didn't have money at that point in time, I have money now. Do you think I would have dawdled this long if I had money 4 weeks ago? No,I would have had a preordered ps4 and would have been playing it while you mooks waited til your choice shipping service decided to stop at your house and deliver it on the release date.

You could've pre-ordered it on amazon like me and not put any money down. The damn thing even came with a 10 buck off PSN membership.

But noooooooooooooooooooooo you wanted to get reward points to a store you HATE.

Agent D must have his eyes on this

....well now that you went and pointed it out...

But seriously, I wasn't aware of this no money down thing for a preorder, which in fact makes no sense. Every where I shop where you can preorder items requires a downpayment for a preorder.

Eh this is the first time I got a launch console since the Jaguar. So... there is a bit of trepidation on my part. But I've never had a problem with a Sony console ever. So I'll be good

Honestly, that is why I buy consoles at Gamestop. Spend an extra $50 for their 2-year extended warranty, then when the system upgrades, claim the thing "broke" and trade it in for the newer model or a limited edition model.

A third of my department got canned and another department we were close to got canned entirely.

Hell yes. I first signed up last year, and have no regrets. Especially since I usually place an order 2-3 times a month. What's not to love?
