JLoverde commented on Best Buy Is Cancelling Majora's Mask New 3DS X...:

Just had my order cancelled. Coincidentally, I only found out it was cancelled after I read this article and decided to check my order status. I used the "Order Status" feature on BestBuy.com and noticed it was indeed cancelled, yet I hadn't received any notification as such. So I printed the order information and was about to call them when I received the following email from BestBuy:

"We’re sorry but there is an issue with your pre-order. The popularity of Nintendo 3DS XL Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask Limited Edition Gold/Black exceeded the quantities made available to Best Buy. As a result, we are unable to fulfill all of the pre-orders received. We regret that your particular order has been canceled and we know that this is disappointing. We want to make it up to you by offering a $50 discount that may be used towards the purchase of one of these alternate options, or other products on BestBuy.com"

I had only ordered a single item, the Zelda 3DSXL. I just find it coincidental that the email's time stamp was the same minute that I had used the Order Status feature.

JLoverde commented on Metroid Prime Trilogy Now Available At GameSto...:

@EJtheK Interestingly enough; GameStop.com is now selling Metroid Prime Trilogy ("Used") for $69.99 and Xenoblade Chronicles ("Used") for $79.99. I don't know if that price applies to "in-store copies" as well, but I thought I'd share it with everyone!

EDIT: Should've added these links for an easy link to the products' page:

JLoverde commented on Metroid Prime Trilogy Now Available At GameSto...:

@EJtheK Unfortunately, unlike the "potential-reprint of Xenoblade Chronicles" fiasco, my copy did not come with a Club Nintendo code whatsoever.

I called my local GameStop this morning and posed the same question; regarding the Steelcase Trade-In, as you had. The Store Manager (Santa Monica, CA), with whom I am very close with, claims that anyone is able to trade in a copy of "Metroid Prime Trilogy" with or without any case. Also citing that when a copy arrives, it never lasts for more than a day or so. Thus, their Region Distribution Centers (RDC) would likely never see a copy of this title, as they barely make it into the store before being sold immediately thereafter. Also, to the best of her knowledge, there has been no directive to ship copies of this title from In-Store to their RDC.

That being said, I asked for details regarding quantities-on-hand at the warehouse level for the title. The Store Manager claimed that the warehouse still had over 2000 copies available to "Site-to-Store" or "Site-to-Home Address"

I'll leave the conclusion up to individual interpretations.

I hope this information is of some use to everyone :)

EDIT: Fixed a couple typos that were bugging me!
