Don't expect to be rewarded for being honest, that's greedy. So return it, then you'll know you did the right thing. It's up to them to react.

Lol, whoah! wait, remember I said I would most likely do that as well. The reason I exampled myself as a loser was because its me, a broke individual, vs Best Buy, a rich, non customer oriented, corporation. I agree with you. And if this was New Egg or something I wouldnt hesitate. You know they will take care of you. But not the smartest folks in the world work at places like Best Buy, and therefore will probably not appreciate your honesty. I kind of look at it as bringing back an extra burger to Jack In The Box or an extra Taco to Taco Bell. They arent gonna give a darn and you would be lucky to get a thank you. I kind of put Best Buy in that league.

So do I, but for me it's about the peace of mind. That's all.

If you call Best Buy they'll just tell you to keep it. Sell the games on OCN for some spare cash. ^_^

Here is my thing, the nearest Best Buy is like 50 miles away, so me returning it in person isnt an option. If they want it then they will pay for it but im not driving to do so. Also I dont feel bad considering Best Buy has the WORST SERVICE for shipping things. And it makes sense that they wrote it off...plus I dont want to deal with stupid customer service...everytime I call I ask for a supervisor because the moron peons are always like "dah, um....derp"

Keep it. Best Buy needs a taste of their own medicine every once and awhile.

This is the other thing and why I don't understand why people are telling you to return it. Best buy screwed up, why should you be forced to fix their mistake? Personally I would keep it. It's not dishonest, if they want to give me an extra copy fine by me. I would give it away to a friend or possibly a freebie on this site. Or you can sell it if you want.

Personally I would not even want to be forced to go through the process or talking to anyone at best buy if I don't have to. I would say wait for them to call you (which they more than likely will not) and if they do call tell them if they want the games back then come to your house and pick them up themselves.

If it was me I and I was talking to them I might call them up and tell them they made a mistake but I would most certainly also tell them that I'm not wasting any of my time to return it or ship it back to them, especially considering how they lost your order in the first place.
