    Was at Target (no deluxes, no leaders, pretty much nothin', no gift card)...and I decided to see if they had the movie game for PC.

    Saw they had none on the shelf so I decided to just ask at the electronics desk.

    Guy says yeah they have a few in stock (I'm all like, YAY!) and then comes the dreaded "but..."

    Apparently there was SOMETHING wrong with the barcode or something and he said that they couldn't ring it up and so they can't sell any copies.

    -_-

    I want my damn game ;_;

    Damn that sucks. But at least you know they have them. Are they able to hold one for you or let you call and check to see if they are actually on sale?

    I asked if they could hold them, but they said no (maybe they planned to ship them back or something, I dunno).

    I still can't figure out exactly how they couldn't ring it up in some way, be it manually, or something but I digress...

    Yeah... no idea why they couldn't have punched in the number or something. Strange.

    Y'know, the last couple of times I've checked, the Targets around here didn't have any leaders or deluxes either.

    My super Wally World does not have much of a selection either. Did find Classic Prime on sale for 14.00. Picked it up to make a Nemesis.

    Downloading it for free is just as bad as stealing it right off the shelf.

    well technically it wasnt on the shelf and they wouldnt sell it to him , so why after being foiled after trying to do the right thing should you hassel yourself more, instead of taking the easy free way out

    yea man thats a retarded statement. its called an illegal copy. because you paid for one copy of the game, making a second is stealing a free copy for a friend

    File sharing:

    It is legal to copy any and all legally purchased CDs/DVDs for personal use. Some people are known to buy rare video games, make a copy, and store the game. That way they can play the $300 Dragonball Z game all day long and not worry about scratching it. Legally they cannot lend out that copy - only the original. Should the original be lost or transfer ownership, the copy must either travel with it and undergo the same terms or be destroyed.

    you just called all the old school hackers retarded. that's their motto, "it's not stealing when copying." anyway, i could try selling it if i wanted to be an asshole. hell i could hand out free copies to people on the street.
