So over the holidays I received some money as gifts from different relatives. Today, I decided to spend it on some new games for my shiny new PS Vita that I also received as an X-mas gift.
First stop: Best Buy.
I head on over to the electronics section (Which was packed with people, BTW.) and browse the Vita aisle. I noticed that BB just dumped all their Vita games with their old PS2 and PSP games, so it was quite hard to sift through. I was looking for Persona 4 Golden, and couldn't find it. I proceeded to ask an employee if they could fetch me one from the back. I was informed that they were sold out.
Cool. I'll just go to Gamestop.
And Gamestop was also packed with people, that tiny store was hard to navigate with all those neck-beards wandering around. The Vita section was literally just two shelves with crappy launch games that were missing their cover inserts. So I wade through the crowd of hipsters to the front counter where I ask an employee if they have Persona 4 Golden. Nope, sold out. I decide I wasn't going to leave empty handed so I bought Metal Gear Acid 2, Uncharted 1, and Bleach: Soul Resurrection. All of them had at least 6 stickers on them and I still haven't been able to peel them all the way off. :(
Not a big deal right? I still had to stop by Wal*Mart so I'd look while I was there.
The only games Wal*Mart had were PSASBR, Mortal Kombat, and Black Ops: Declassified. Pathetic. I pick up the other things I needed and headed back home. At home I hop on Amazon, a task that was not hindered by obnoxious post-holiday crowds. And what do I see? Persona 4, in-stock, brand new, with no stickers. All I have to do is click the button to order it.
I guess I'm just sick of snobby retailers with pitiful stock, higher prices, and friggin stickers. I HATE STICKERS!!!!111!!!one!!1!!!
