I would say go back to the store ASAP or at least give them a call and fill them in.

If you wait a day they will probably give you a hard time. Put yourself in their shoes, a guy comes back the next day and says his game is empty.

Good luck op!

Shitty.

I get weird looks sometimes when I have to return renovation stuff. Open it up and its cracked, or chipped, or parts missing.

My first thought walking in is "they are going to think I did it."

My second thought is, "try something. See the stink I'll make."

^they closed at 6.

tried calling but no go. The package was slightly opened already so I'm guessing an employee stole the disc. I never held it cause it was from the cage and the front desk just grabbed it and put it in the bag and off I went..

Ah that sucks. Give them a call in the morning and let them know the packaging was open. Internal theft isn't uncommon so hopefully the manager sides with you

^Luckily for you it's bestbuy and they are lenient on such things especially for something as small as a videogame.

I'd probably start off with, "I kno how this looks but I swear on...."?

Scammers probably brought the game home, took out the disc, sealed it back up with shrink wrap and then returned it to the store. They then prob sold just the disc on craiqslist or kept the game themselves.

If you bought it on a credit card, the card may have theft insurance. This may be covered under that policy

not the employee.
a thief. My buddy who works at FS told me guys do this all the time.
They'll buy the game (to get it out of the protective box) and then make a slit and return it. They'll put the game back on the shelve and sell it.

Call BB, ask to speak to store manager, explain exactly what happened and ask him/her to advise on the situation. Put the ball in their court.

I lol'd. Did the game not come in the plastic covering?

The FS I work at has some games in the "security" box, but all other games are always covered in plastic and lying on the shelves

Don't you guys grab a card.. then go pay? Then they grab you a fresh copy with the wrapper? Rarely do I see the protective box casing anymore.

it would be less suspicious if you exchanging it for the same game...if you refund, then they may have a harder time believing you

best of luck OP!

That's what EB does. You bring the box of the game you want to buy to the cashier and they find the game and put it in the box, seal it for you.
