    Got the GS £340 deal with GOW, PGR3, COD3 and PES

    GOW has Bundle only on the front, will this stop me from trading in or selling on? Im quite annoyed if i have to keep it when finished

    I was in CEX the other day and almost every copy of GOW had the "Sold as part of bundle etc" on the front, so it dosnt look like they are bothered by it.

    My copy of GoW also had "Bundle Copy: Not For Resale" written across it, so I went in to swap it for one that didn't. They told me I had to keep that one because it was part of the Bundle, my box was a GoW box. But they said I could exchange it for another game without a problem.

    I will be going in today or sometime during the weekend to do just that. The exchange value should be around the £30 mark, otherwise I will be very angry.

    what "Bundle copy: Not for resale" means is that the store cant open the bundles that they get and sell them individually, that is just so u don't buy a new copy of a bundle game.

    Basically it protects you from spending lots of cash on a game that you should have received for free or at a discounted price.

    example(games may vary): When you buy lets say viva pinata, you get G.R.A.W free with it. They put bundle copy on it so you dont spen the $50 for viva pinata, and the $30 on G.R.A.W.

    So when trading/selling, it doesn't matter.

    As in the case more recently with the US Wii Sports, unlike here it came loose, I've seen a few homebrew inserts for it.

    I think this is really bad.
    I have GOW with "bundle copy not for resale on it" that i want to shift (already had the game and someone bought me a gow bundle 360).
    If some shops won't accept it (and i think they would have every right not too) that means this game is usless to me even though it's not even out of the celophane.

    Sure, shop owners shouldnt be selling it out of the bundle o make more on the game but why should i lose out on a sale a i would if it was a game purchased from new ?

    it's really annoying:mad:
