    They'll give it, no worries. It's US you live in, not Middle East [​IMG]

    True dat. But, I wonder if the CoD:BO bundled hardware will somehow be "inferior" to the previous PS3 models. I won't mind if it has 3.60 installed, but I'd hate to have a sub-par cpu or cooling system (et. al.)

    It wasn't EoF, so I posted it here. I guess it's "local" news?!?!

    There's something called the PS3 section.

    If anything, this is "time sensitive" information. The "Gamestop Coupon" expires today!

    I am aware of this section. I am a big fan. This news is not hardware/software related.

    Lol be real [​IMG] You purchased the PS3 160GB with a coupon and some cash I presume, and you got a receipt right? Now all you need is the receipt and the PS3 as proof that you bought it before they can exchange it in for that bundle. I don't think the coupon will be taken into consideration now. It's done and out.

    Of course it would be, but since OP stated that GameStop dude asked him to get the 160GB one now and change it in later for the CoD one, I guess there's nothing to worry about [​IMG]

    I was kinda hoping for a temper/Gamestopper that could verify this as protocol. [​IMG]

    Well, it was stated that the coupon cannot be used for the COD bundle. However, some employees are not informed well enough and do these kinda things. I guess you can get lucky with him?

    I can verify that on many occasions, Gamestops have refused item swaps even when their terms clearly state the swap is acceptable.

    I am sincerely hoping that anyone in my position with a $100 Gamestop PS3 coupon that expires TODAY will inquire with their local Gamestop shop as to the possibility of this. Needless to say, I'm gonna give it a shot [​IMG].

    I wish there was a place to post this kinda stuff on the temp. I'll prob feel like an even bigger turd if I get my way and didn't announce it here properly. Rest assured; if the Gamestop dude's manager tells me to eff off, I'll post that here as well.

    *UPDATE* So they didn't tell me to eff off, but they said no. Actually, they said I would have to pay the $100 difference. Oh well.
