O_O Is Gamestop on crack now?!

#1Kirby_lover32Posted 1/19/2010 2:34:09 PM
I was looking at their HG/SS page to see that the Ho-oh and Lugia figures are now available. Then I just noticed Gamestop increased the prices for HG/SS. It was $34.99, now it's $39.99!
I pre-ordered HG on Sunday which costed me $38.10, if I pick it up, do I need to pay the amount left? T^T

The employees at the Gamestop I always go to are often on crack.

Yes, you will need to pay the difference.

Pre-order prices are only an estimate. Top-self DS games have been $40 for a while now, so the price isn't really surprising.

Damn, the only DS game I bought that was over $40 was Final Fantasy IV, and it was $44 including tax. Platinum didn't have this problem T^T

Well, if it's 35 dollars, what difference is 5 dollars, you know?

Yes, Gamestop is indeed on crack.

If you tell me where I can find a completed save for japanese Pokemon Colosseum, I'll be your little monkey slave.

But seriously, TC, when you preordered and paid, I assume they gave you a receipt, yes? Then you're good. If they sold you something for one price, then want more money when you try to pick it up, call the cops. I'm not kidding.

5 dollars easily go away on chips, dr. pepper and bubble gum!
though, 40$ seems to be the standard price for DS games on such a place, or wal-mart

They gave me a receipt and didn't do anything suspicious. Luckly I know 2 people from the Gamestop I go to.

Funny how the price seemed to go up at the same time the "free" figures were announced.

On a happier note,
