Alright, I go to Kmart to buy Darksiders and get it eventually. I open it up with my dad hovering over me to find I have NO GAME! Just a rewritable disc and the instruction booklet was jacked also and replaced with a printed one from someones computer. I eventually did one of the most awekard thing in my life and returned it, getting a new one. Has this ever happened to any of you???
Also sorry if this is in the wrong form, I really didn't know what would be best for this type of thing.

Its very easy to re shrink wrap a game. One of the guys here had something like this happen to their FF13 360 version. Two Disks 2.

Yeah I know... But that means that someone must have taken their own disc 2 and put it into the case, meaning that person end up with either two disc 1's or two disc 3's. That person essentially must have thrown away their second disc.

...why would that be awkward? Just to convince them that you didn't steal it?

It was probably just a printing error.

@Tebbit:  At first I was thinking they went cheap on the disc cover. Then I wanted to read the manual and I found printer paper covering and regular paper inside. 
Really was fucked up.

hapenned to me with a DVD copy of Double Team, just with no disc at all

#18 Posted by Kowbrainz (923 posts) -
Woah... has to be one of the dodgiest things I've seen in a while. :/
#19 Posted by ZenaxPure (2569 posts) -

That is indeed pretty messed up, hope kmart doesn't give any sort of trouble trying to refund it.

#20 Posted by CenturionCajun (1461 posts) -

I once bought a copy of a season of Married With Children (Love that show) only to get it home and discover that of the four discs which were supposed to be in it there was only one DVR disc. When I returned it they looked at me like I was trying to pull something but it was the God's honest truth. Since then I've worked at a Gamestop for almost two years and in that time I have seen some really weird things. From discs not being in the cases, to the wrong game being in the cases, to a porno disc being in a case, to the mother of them all which was a game that had the wrong games artwork right on the disc itself. Keep in mind these were all sealed games which we open when we guy copies to put out on the floor so I know that it wasn't someone in our store who did it.
 
When they print hundreds of thousands, and sometimes millions, of these discs bizarre things are going to happen. I'm just glad they didn't try to give you a hard time and replaced it for you.

Happened to me with BF 2142. I was pissed because it was the last copy :(

You are supposed to check the product. So then anyways its their fault again.

@The_Laughing_Man: Ok, Guess you're right... :/
  
In that case...
GO BURN DOWN THAT EFFING KMART!

@Stensby: Atleast he went the extra mile and put in dvds instead of cds.

Plus..i do not think kmart is allowed to resell stuff like that since they charge full prices.

What? Did they replace the cartridge with something? or was there no catridge at all?

There was a serious scam going a while back that read a lot like this.  Guy was buying games, taking out the discs and returning the box re-shrink wrapped.  He then sold the case-less games on eBay and amassed a small fortune.  He was caught though.  Happens when you operate out of a single area with a scam like this without branching out to different stores.
