Thanks in advance.

So many American contests, so little Canadian contests, makes me sad.

Still can’t wait for this game though!

Oh my.. And I was thinking of pre-ordering at Bestbuy because I hate Gamestop. I may put my feelings behind me for just one day though.

I’m also confused about which # on my receipt is the reservation code.

Offering the demo/beta access as a pre-order bonus is one of the cheapest tricks this gen.
Please, no more after GoW3.

would love to know why my attempts to post under my main username do not appear (probably banned for having my own thoughts) but I guess I’ll post under this one…

This seems like a good preorder bonus but I’ve already had my copy paid for at Amazon for months. I probably wouldn’t have a chance in winning anyways…

Why are you supporting gamestop so much? Switch to Best Buy!

Wow I would hate myself if I won that week 3 prize? Awesome TV, Awesome stereo system, awesome trip, Pizza party.

The other 3 winners should point and laugh at the week 3 winner.

They can all Laugh at Canada since Canada gets diddily squat :(

+ krae_man on February 17th, 2010 at 3:06 pm said:

Wait wait wait. Why did you announce this contest before the 250gb Kratos PS3 that is in one of the prizes? That’s kind of a weird way to announce a new system bundle.

+ Zinacef on February 17th, 2010 at 3:09 pm said:

I pre-ordered it months ago so can I still enter?


24

+ Starkusmc on February 17th, 2010 at 3:10 pm said:

I don’t believe in pre-orders anymore. Not after I pre-ordered CoD: MW2 the day they announced it available and then come to find out 3 weeks later it was backordered. So yeah…no.

Besides, I want a PS3 console with Kratos holding Hades or Zeus’ head. That would be worth entereing.

+ Mr_Valor on February 17th, 2010 at 3:22 pm said:

I must say.Unless they do something for Playstation Home in these preorders…I wont preorder.I dont care how big a prize it is.

I’m just going to ask this since you always manage to forget this info…

Is this avalible for Canadian EB games pre order?

Booo. I didn’t pre-order online, and no longer have my store receipt. Oh well.

+ WYO1016 on February 17th, 2010 at 3:48 pm said:

Will someone please tell us where the reservation code on the receipt is? Hard to enter if I don’t know which number to put in.

Good for the US i guess …

+ Wolf26pack on February 17th, 2010 at 3:49 pm said:

I pre-ordered early on 11/05/09 and cannot find any reservation code on my receipt so I read the official rules and it said the code is to the right of the Date & Time on your reciept. This didn’t look right to me so I tried calling my local Gamestop & asked where the Reservation Code could be found? He said he didn’t know and I read him the code to the right of the Date & time and he told me that was only the Store # & Register # & Daily transaction #. So I decided to call Gamestop Customer Service and was told the same thing and she didn’t know either.

So I had to guess and it in my opinion can only either be one of 2 codes.

- The # After it says “Reserve Order Deposit”
- Your Customer #

I most likely think it is The “Reserve Order Deposit” # so that is what I ended up putting.

If anybody offical knows the answer please let us know.

I don’t care what your incentive is, I will never buy from GameStop again. I can’t stand that store, nor its employees. I just got my GOW3 Collectors Edition pre-order from Best Buy just to show you where I will spend my money. And it is NEVER going to be at GameStop ever again.

Switch to Best Buy! I can use my Rewards Zone card, my Gamers Club card, even my $$ back in the mail from my points, and not get treated like crap in the process!

Hey Playstation fans

Wolf26Pack, I already entered the contest and I also had a hard time finding the code. The code can be found after the words “RESERVE ORDER DEPOSIT”. It should be a four number code. Next the code is the amount of cash you put towards your preorder. Hope that helps


35

+ CurlehMustache on February 17th, 2010 at 3:59 pm said:

@ Wolf26pack – That’s the number I entered too. I also wasn’t positive. Hopefully it worked.


36

+ CloudStrife2009 on February 17th, 2010 at 4:00 pm said:

I think the Reservation code is the 4# after where it says Reserve Order Deposit. I typed it in and it work, so i guess it is the right one =/


37

+ eddieMX07 on February 17th, 2010 at 4:04 pm said:

Also if your lost your receipt, you should email gamestop at lostyourcode@gamestop.com with the subject “God of War 3 Code Request” and also include your name. I think this is for email preorders.

If that does not work then you can call your local gamestop were you preordered the game. They should be able to provide the code for you. Hope that helps

+ Jeigh on February 17th, 2010 at 4:22 pm said:

Thanks one hell of an incentive scheme. The only real problem is that it requires going through Gamestop.

Guys, you dont have to preorder. Reed the rules:

“3.) Send an email to sweepsentry@gamestop.com with “Be The Envy” as the subject line and the following information in the body of the email: First Name, Last Name, Phone Number and Date of Birth. Upon sending the email, you will receive one (1) entry into the sweepstakes”

GameStop sucks! After the absolutely horrific experience I had with their customer support, I will NEVER, EVER set foot inside one again! They have lost me as a customer forever!

@eddieMX07,CurlehMustache,CoudStrife2009

Well like I said I called my local Gamestop & called Gamestop Customer Service and neither could figure it out. I also just came back from Gamestop and the Manager told me he thought it was the Feedback # on the bottom of the receipt, but like you’ve all said & I as well think it is the #’s after it say’s “Reserve Order Deposit”. So I also used that #.

I also emailed them at the site where it says Lost your code and asked so once I get an answer I will repost the answer I get. Hopefully they will know ;-)

until then Goodluck to all who enter

I would totally pre-order this game from gamestop, BUT they don’t have the Ultimate Edition, and because i bought my PS3 for this game i WILL get my hands on an Ultimate Edition, even if i don’t get into the sweepstakes.

Did a sweepstakes with extremely low odds of winning really warrant a PSBlog post? Come on.
