    As a gamestop employee, It's clear to me that this specific store is at fault. It's policy to test the consoles before packaging them up to be sold. If they were broken, the store shouldn't have took them in the first place.

    • ri8002

      unless they were told to by their DM, which we know worse things happen from them

    This just shows how good of a company GameStop is 🥲🔫

      @Naterthot they do the 48 hour courtesy return on games that just released just in case you didn’t like it

    • miniontm69

      They actually screw with the systems so they break and you buy more with warranties.

    Austin spends over 1000$ on consoles: GameStop when he try’s to sell the consoles back: “best I can do is three”

    Even though this is one of my favorite videos, I feel like when he is checking on the eBay side of costs for these console he immediately thinks the lowest price is the best option and thinks that he was ripped off.

    i like how with every other console the name is what tells you what kind it is like the ps4 pro, the ps3 slim but with the switch you can only tell based off the color of the box lmao

  • Gogeta

    This is why u don't just run in to GameStop and tell the clerk "yo I want 10 game systems in that cart in under 10 seconds pronto!' (Buyer leaves store) clerk:"yee I'm rich"

    I can only imagine a 11 year old kid going to gamestop with his mom trying to get a deal from a “trusted” seller because money is running tight and they pay 120 bucks for a PS3 only to find it overheats making everything impossible to play

      I paid $100 for my PS3 Slim and it's been my favorite console so far. Only time it's ever died on me was last week because I left it on overnight in a cramped TV stand (had a fatal system error, rebooted the console and played Tron: Evolution without a single fault) still has the warranty seal though, so had to clean it with the unplug/eject trick that kicks it into self-cleaning mode Edit: I should note that mine wasn't from GameStop, maybe they have a unique problem with refurb consoles I don't know about

    • Cavey

      GameStop has to actually test these out before selling them to make sure everything is fine. But GameStop dosen’t really give a fuck.

    • EVOKERsage

      Crazy how as soon as i finished reading this cmnt his ps3 died lol

    • Unkn0wn404

      @Luke A you shouldn’t have to do that and there should be quality checks so they’re not scamming you

      @Chouchers unless they come with atleast a years warranty. The length of warranty is a sign of a sellers trust in the product they are selling. GameStop only offering 2 weeks warranty on these used consoles shows that they know they’re selling broken systems.

    Not really a rip off. You need to remember that you're getting the console then and there, that is why buying in store is more expensive.

    This guy seems really happy even though he wasted a ton of money. I'm sure he was expecting GameStop to totally screw it, but did it anyway just to make a video

      Do you realize how much money he made off this video? Haha, I don't think really cares about the money he wasted.

      @Matthew Devine they literally just put them in their boxes without inspection
