Damn you CrapStop!

I just wanna vent...Ordered Xenoblade Chronicles "Brand New" from GameStop Online and just received the game. Guess what?! It's a gutted copy! I didn't know they pull this kind of crap with Online orders. I didn't have any problems with Online orders before. This really pissed me off. This is my first ever Wii game which I'll be playing on my brand new Wii U and I get a gutted copy. Jeez man! I feel like reporting their practice to Better Business Bureau. At least I should be thankful that the manual is there (which looks worn out, btw). But the dirty game case and the even dirtier "New" sticker is really a slap on the face.

There's no reason to deal with Gamestop online when there are sites like Amazon.

Xenoblade is Gamestop Exclusive and is largely sold out and is out of print. (Nintendo's Store has it in a bundle as well)

Amazon doesn't sell it and scalpers are taking advantage of that.

Xenoblade in the US was a GameStop exclusive.

You want it from Amazon? 135.99.
Or the next new seller on Amazon? 85.00.

Using Amazon in this instance would be not be a good idea.

I wish I didn't have to shop at GameStop. I avoid them like a plague because of their business practice. And as others mentioned...Xenoblade is CrapStop exclusive. So I had no choice.

Yes, seriously.

Unless you want the Japanese version... that's even more.

I really don't mind GameStop for the most part, but it's s***** business practice to open up the case, take out the disc and such and then sell it as 'new'. I'll tell them to get bent if they try that again and I'll go to a different store.
