So today, as most people know, Pokemone Black/White 2 is released. Being the diehard Pokemon fan that I am, I reserved my copy in advanced. I wanted to play it same day as release and unfortunately they closed the Bestbuy near me(as well as my local GameStop due to internal theft) so I had to trek out to the ghetto (literally).

So I made my way into the location where I had to wait for some drug addict selling a plethora of 360 for cash. To then have a little boy cut me off, which I was fine since he was picking up his copy of Pokemon Black 2 (same color I got).

I proceed to ask for my reservation and give him my $5 coupon from left over PowerRewards. Apparently I would have to pay an additional $15 to deactivate my account to use a coupon that I printed that morning. Great customer service.

I don't judge GameStop for running a business nor the people who are too impatient to sell their games online, but since I don't have any need for my rewar card anymore they should at the very least honor what points I've built up.

Now for the kicker. Even in my annoyance I proceeded to ask to preorder the Assassins Creed Vita Bundle. He looks at me and asks if I'm serious and why would I like Vita. And continues to ramble about how it's flopping. I'm trying to give his company $250 and he's trying to turn me off on it. (This is the manager by the way). I proceed to tell him I'm a gamer and not a fanboy and like to play games on multiple consoles.

Tl;dr Gamestop has officially lost my business after all these years.

Too bad your local Gamestop happens to be this way. My Gamestop ( less than 2 miles from where I live ) has always been great. I've been shopping there since the original DS launched. Never a problem.

Wow. Not even Gamestop likes the Vita. Wierd since they're advertising the Neo Geo X things.

So, because they advised you against buying a console that's flopping badly, even though it would cost them money, they're bad for their costumers? Right-o.

He could have done it with more class, but advising you against buying a flopping system is what a game adviser should do.

I've heard that it's flopping so bad that the average Gamestop can go a whole day without selling a single piece of hardware or software for it.
This is a sig.

You guys realize that by telling a customer not to buy something they're helping it flop right

Actually the answer is yes. TC is no longer their customer and they didn't make any money.

Pokemon Black/White is for the DS not the 3DS. Offtopic
