I think it's far more likely that he's lying than it is wal-mart accepted a return on the original ps4 without opening the box.  I've never worked anywhere where that wasn't standard policy.  You certainly wouldn't re-sell a return without checking it.

I work at Sam's Club, and I've seen cashiers accept returns because "the box had enough weight that it felt right," to which, I take the box and check for them.

I honestly think that he could have bought it, kept the PS4, filled the box with rocks, and said he got it that way.

 

on the other hand he did buy an open box but I definitely see this as a possibility.

 

but giving him the benefit of the doubt: sorry brah, it happens.

They aren't even current dude, they're more than 5 years behind.

I know, the hardware is -6 years but they are the current conslows.

This could simply be someone trying to rip off Walmart by replacing the PS4 with some bags of rocks and contacting some news outlets to put pressure on Walmart.

This could be a genius returning a "PS4" and basically stealing several hundred dollars from Walmart (super risky, I wouldn't try it. Whole thing banks on them not checking the returned and obviously opened product before restocking it).

This could be underpaid Walmart employees not caring enough to check the PS4 being returned.

I'd've put some potatoes in there myself. Also, it amuses me that this happened in my city, but I'm sure this happens everywhere all the time.

I don't see the problem. Aren't the rocks equal to the performance of these "next gen" consoles?

You really have a deep hatred for console players.

I've bought a used game from Futureshop before. They claim the games are all tested, cleaned, and repackaged by experts before being sold, but they somehow seemed to screw up the first basic fundamental task, which was to make sure the (right) game was actually in the case. It wasn't the right game inside. I guess it isn't as bad as getting nothing but I thought it was sorta funny and ironic how their "experts" failed the first step. I ended up getting a refund.

Probably because I used to room with one that would not except and clear and undeniable factual evidence that consoles are inferior. I now tag him anytime I link videos showcasing just how bad consoles are, on facebook. Just to irritate him.


Computer's don't make errors. What they do, they do on purpose. By now your name and particulars have been fed into every laptop, desktop, mainframe and supermarket scanner that collectively make up the global information conspiracy, otherwise known as The Beast.

 

You just be careful. Computers have already beaten the Communists at chess. Next thing you know, they'll be beating humans.

Not sure about you, but I don't open the presents I buy for people.

 

That and I don't know about USA stores, but in Ireland you're going to have one hell of a time returning an opened item anyway unless it was DAO or proof that it was damaged when opened the first time.

Oh that's a shame. Here in Sweden we can pretty much return anything. When I bought my DSLR the sales guy said I could return it and get my money back if I returned it within 30 days, even if I opened and used it.

The main exception here is that once it's been opened and used it can't be resold as new, so there are issues then.  Awesome rules in Sweden though. :D

 

Although to be fair there are exceptions, and it always depends on the type of item here.

I feel sorry for the guy if it's real, as he's been scammed hard by the guy who previously returned it due to the fact supermarkets barely ever check returned items and just return them to the shelf.

Proof of this is the time one guy took back a bottle of beer on four seperate occasions to the same supermarket, and the people who bought those bottles discovered that they contained water. Not beer.

Bye. Nobody really cares about your announcement.

 

As for the buyer, that is really terrible. And the fact that Walmart was being a cunt makes it even worse. But I do feel that he should have attempted to check it before leaving since it was open before he bought it.

So a PS4 then.
