I had that happen with a copy of Halo 3 from Best Buy, which was a gift even...
They did exchange it for another, but opened that copy in-store to verify the disc was there.

Guys would this be the best purchase possible for the switch?

For a few days, maybe. Wood Block Escape Puzzles comes out on May 20, though. Mark your calendars!

If you’re looking for a deal, though, you may want to try out the wonderfully-titled “2in1 - Application Driver and Serial Killer/Sniper”

An unbelievable deal! It’s two games in one!

For $1.99, it's still a better deal than a lot of shovelware on Steam..

I was wondering about this too! I feel like if this happened to me, the employees would look at me like I'm crazy. Lol.

Glad to hear isiolia was able to make the exchange when it happened though.

Well, after all these years I managed to get a VMU stuck in one of my Dreamcast controllers. Swapped in one VMU for another, and now the thing just won't budge. Not even sure how I managed to do that, maybe I just put it in slightly misaligned.

Has anyone ran into this issue? If so, any advice on getting the VMU out? I'm thinking I'll have to take the controller apart at this point, but can't seem to find my smaller screwdrivers, so I'll have to make a trip to the hardware store.

What a pain!
