So i went to pre order this game at walmart today...

17 replies 772 views Edited Nov 2, 2012

And they said there wasnt any pre order bonus with the game.(what?) Obviously the guy didnt know what he was talking about. Because when he looked up the agme on his laptop thingy (yeah i dont know what its called) he saw the game in the database( yeah no suprise) and he had NO IDEA what the game was. He even asked me why nathan drake(i guess he plays uncharted?) was on the cover... I argued with him for more than 5 minutes before i just decided to leave and not preorder the game there. So i guess ill just preorder it as gamestop later. Although one thing bothered me. NO ONE at walmart knew what the game was. Even in the electronics section with all the posters for the upcoming games, it wasnt even there. Has anyone else had a problem like this?! Superbot realy needs to advertise this game more. Dont you agree? Smiley Frustrated

At my wal-mart I have two gamer homies, but they're only xboxers basically.

They should add that slot to Wal-Mart Bingo "Guy who doesn't know what PSASBR is."

But I know what you mean I pre-ordered at Gamestop and the guy looked at me like "are you high?" after he asked if I'd prefer assassins creed, Black Ops, or Halo, after that I left and pre ordered online.

Quite honestly, the people who work in the electronic section in Wal-mart are **bleep**, and they are worse when you are young, I guess its cause they work at Wal-Mart? Who knows, but its crap.

Why exactly was he arguing with you? It says right on this website that pre-ordering with Wal-Mart will get you the costumes.

Had a similar experience calling Eb Games (Canadian Gamestop) today:

 

Me: Are you guys offering PlayStation All-Stars pre-order bonus?

Bimbo: Wait, what?

Me: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, are you offering the pre-order bonus?

Bimbo: Oh, ya you can totally pre-order it.

Me: No, I'm asking if you have the pre-order bonus for it.

Bimbo: Oh, I'll look it up.......Oh, you mean the free vita version of the game?

Me: No, that comes with every copy of the game, I'm talking about the costumes for each character.
Bimbo: Oh, I don't know.

 

It's not totally her fault, I don't think EB games is offering it which is beyond stupid, can't find it at any other retailers in Canada either.

Can't really expect people who work in an electronics section of Wal-Mart to be video game experts. Chances are they work in multiple areas of the store, have to cover a wide range of merchandise, and aren't given a lot of specialty instruction. Combine that with the fact Wal-Mart employees are traditionally some of the lowest paid in the retail industry, and it's hard to expect much from them.
