Thumbs down GameStop "Reservation" For GTA IV May Be Meaningless

So I just read this from Kotaku, informing us that Gamestop has told its employees that to assure" guarantee of availability, for walk-in customers" they will be selling ALL available copies of GTA IV, even those reserved for pre-orders.

http://kotaku.com/385487/your-gamest...be-meaningless

I called Gamestop, and received confirmation of this. So I guess our pre-orders are indeed worthless, to the extent of availability. Still, I would check with your Gamestop.

Pre-orders are supposed to be held for 48 hours after release, but if they're really going to give those copies away earlier, that's not too cool.

I only paid $10, and the guy told me that my money was still good, just that he won't guarantee that when I do want to purchase the game, they'll have it available even for the "pre-order people".

What nobody told you is that there is a sales contest for GTAIV behind the scenes of GameStop.

Basically the top 500 stores that sell the most copies (per region), every employee of the store receives a free copy of the game (system not specified). Then what will happen is that the employees that already have the game (myself included) will simply print out a receipt of a person that bought the game with cash, and return the game using that receipt.

Me though, I'll most likely return it and put it on Metal Gear 4 or something.

GameStop's a fucked up company.

EDIT:
lol whoops, I should read because they tell you that in the news article. Wow I'm retarded.

Talking about MGS4, I hope they don't do something like they're doing right now.

So you work at GameStop?

EDIT: lol, should have read that \/ \/ \/ \/

the one i went to said they had only enough 360 versions to cover pre orders and a few extra ps3's .... technically if you reserve from gamestop its free because the min $5 you put on it comes off the final price
