Same thing happen with me but the other way around with Dragon Age

I was going to sell it for 25 trade in credit. (I was young then and stupid) It was pretty much a brand new game and the guy in front of me was about to buy a new copy but saw I had an opened copy of the game and knew I was planning on selling, gave me a look that was somewhat mysterious but I knew what he was thinking. So I asked the gamestop guy how much he would give me and it was 25, I said that's too low I'll go somewhere else and THEN he did his best to stall me and talk to be about BS because he knew I was going to sell it to that guy. So I went outside and the guy with money already in his hand said he'll buy it for $40 and boom it was done. So that guy was at least a bit nicer by giving me 40 and not 30.
I accidentally ended up in a gay romance with him. dh1723

Someone was about to trade it in at gamestop for $60 store credit and I was like I'll give to $65 cash. I had just went to gamestop the day before looking to get a 3DS and they were sold out. The guy at gamestop got pissed about it for some odd reason. After I bought it I asked if they had any fire emblems and he responded no in a quick and sharp manner. So then I asked was it available on the nintendo store and he was like no it's not in the same tone as before. So I get home and connect it to my network and low and behold FE is on the nintendo store. Now my question is should I buy it off the store or get the physical copy from another store?

So first the dumbass loses the 3DS markup, and because he's butthurt, also loses the money the store would have made selling you a game?

They should fire him.

Go to another store.

Yeah I was thinking that was the better choice. Because I don't have a SD card for it yet as well.

Plus digital games aren't worth anything, while hard copies have collectors value. Awakening is a pretty big game, and it'll be worth something years down the road.

good for you, gamestop is jus plain wrong when it comes to credit amounts and markups.
FE is tough to find right now so if you cant find it just download it.

Wow. They only offered me $40 when I went in to trade for an XL a few months ago, so I said **** that and just kept my normal one.
