    Re: gol 'darnit Walmart :(

    Go on ebay, sell your ps3 game, you should be able to get at least 50 for it.

    Use the money from the sale to go and get the 360 version.

    Might be a little more work, but if the people Walmart are being complete assses about it, this might be your next best option.

    I just got back from Walmart with my friend and mom.
    My mother decided to buy me Assassin's Creed (a video game for you old guys).
    And we were literally just leaving the parking lot and i opened the case to look at it.
    As soon as i opened it i realised it was a Play Station 3 game.. well just so happens i have an Xbox 360, not a PS3.


    Well, considering we had the receipt from not even 10 minutes ago, i walked back in to ask if there was anything they could do for an exchange.
    Well.. they have a policy if its opened they won't take it back, even tho i just talked to the same guy that got it for me.

    So now i'm stuck with a 60 dollar birthday present for a video game system i don't have
    :'( i really wanted the game too... You'd think a multi-billion dollar cooporation could have at least some slack.. i'm pissed
    I'd call you stupid.......but I did the EXACT same thing back in '04 with the newest Tiger Woods Golf game.
    I owned an Xbox, but the clerk gave me the PS2 game accidentally.
    I opened it at home first before realizing it.
    Fortunately, the customer service woman was elderly and extremely polite.
    She said her company needs to learn the customers are right, looked at me, winked, and asked if the game was defective.
    I was like, uhhh, sure?
    She said, great, then I'll put this with defectives.
    Now, we'll get you the exact same game.
    She sent someone to the electronics department, and exchanged it with the Xbox version.
    She looked at me and just said, 'whoops, guess we must be out of the PS2 copies.
    Would this one be OK?'

    Idiots underestimate customer service.
    If a store wants your money and customer support, they should treat you like family.
    Now, since they didn't, they essentially send you an invitation: "Hey, why not check out our competition, then?"
    Which is not a good idea.
    The customer might find a better relationship.
    I was lucky, but still, F*** Walmart's return policy on things like this.

    Simple logic could probably tell you were not a master video game copier and pirating thief, and they should have exchanged the game.
    : Most store that I know of have the exact same policy?

    How damn hard is it to look at a game before you pay for it & look for the 3 or 4 letters PS2 or XBOX?

    But you were with her when she bought it & you were the one who opened it right away. Didn't you look?

    I'm not a big games & don't own any, but I have boughten them for my girls before. Isn't there a difference between the cases that
    a PS3, XBOX & game cube come in. Could have sworn there was.

    Perhaps you could sell it to a friend & put that money towards one that is for your gaming system.

    Re: Damn Walmart :(

    Figured i'd reply to my old thread from last week since i ranted when it first happend.
    I'm pretty new to ebay, but after this incident i love it.

    Sold my PS3 version of the game and bought the Xbox 360 version and only lost $1.
    I actually had a bid in with 7 minutes left where i would have made $6 profit.. but i had some last minute competition

    <3 Ebay <3
