Guitar Hero 5 At My Local Wal-Mart

7 replies 13 views Edited Aug 25, 2009

Look at what I found at my local Wal-Mart early.

 

 

The only problem is that when they went to ring it up, it said that the sale was not allowed.

 

When I spoke to the woman stocking the shelves that night, she said that the date on the box said August 25th so it technically should have let me buy it.  She said to check back later today and it might let me buy it.

 

I was really bummed out because I thought I was actually going to be able to play it today, but I guess I'll find out later.

 

I'm almost positive that they still won't let me buy it later today because they had a big sign as I was walking in the door that said that it was available September 1st.

 

I'll be sure to post back later today to let you know what happens.

I would complain to the manager, if they have it on the shelf, it is for sale. if it is not for sale they should have not put it on the shelf.

Haha that's awesome man, but that stinks that they go and put it on the shelf and not let you buy it... I mean, complain about it and be like "fine, you just lost a valued customer" or something

I actually went back tonight and they had pulled all of them from the shelves.

 

I kind of figured that would happen.

 

I guess I'll have to wait to play it.

Man, that's so stupid, I hate it when the stupid employees stock stuff early, you should be able to get it if it's on a shelf....

Yes, everyone who buys it with the sticker will get GHVH for free. The preorder only thing was basically a rumor or something, but the deal will only last through the month of september I believe.

The problem with selling it early: they can get sued and/or lose rights to sell the game. Not going to happen but its something management scares people with.
