WTF Gamestop?!?!

I get games for review sure, but you can’t get every game that ever comes out so I’ve got to buy them. I don’t care for Gamestop too much, but it’s convenient, not even a 5 minute drive from my house and the used game are fairly cheap for my kids.

This has happened numerous times now I’ve gone in there on launch day and they don’t have the title. Not just little games, but big blockbuster games like Call of Duty Black Ops for instance.

Today Plants vs Zombies for Nintendo DS came out. My kids had 2 hour delay because of the ice on the roads, so I stopped at Gamestop after dropping them off and no Plants vs Zombies for the DS at all. They only have them if you reserved it. This has happened many times now and it’s to the point where it’s really pissing me off.

I don’t reserve games because you never know what’s going to show up on my doorstep to review, so why reserve something when it might show up.

Wouldn’t you think that they’d get a few extras in besides the reserves for people who walk in and want to buy it. That would be common sense I would think, but apparently Gamestop has no common sense at all. They’re losing money.The guy even told me that they got no extra copies to sell except for reserves and that’s it. So now everyone that sees the game has been released today will go in and be told no that they don’t have it. It’s release day and they don’t have the game for you to purchase, that just makes no sense to me whatsoever.

If it wasn’t for my kids I seriously wouldn’t ever step foot in a Gamestop, Kmart is right across the mall from the Gamestop and I could easily grab games there if I want to buy them. usually I just grab them from Amazon or somewhere else online.

It’s launch day at the biggest chain video game store and they have no copies of the game.

As I said this has happened many times to me and it’s rather annoying that such a large company like Gamestop doesn’t have the game on launch day for you to buy.

Whatever, someone else will get my money if they don’t want it..
