Man buys a PS4 from Walmart, gets a box of rocks instead

Leave it to the "pc master race group" to totally derail a topic...

Meh, rocks are probably still a better gaming machine.

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 don't think it's a law but the store I bought my camera from offers it. Pretty sure some stores does it just to stay competitive as well.

Pretty sure opened products don't get resold as new here either, but the amount of customers who actually buy an ~800+ dollar product and then go "nahh I don't want this after all" is probably really low so they are okay with selling those as open box.

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

 

+1 to that. 

 

At least it wasn't for a 5yo who still  believe in Santa... That would have been terrible.

 

* Opening present * 

- A PS4 !? Oh my god thank you Santa !! 

* Opening the box * 

- WTF Santa ? 

 

Next time I buy a gift, I'll open it and try it for a at least a month to make sure  everything is fine :P

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.

 

Here its a 14-30 day thing. Computers and such tend to be closer to 14 days, but some stores have a firm 60-90 day return period on everything. It varies a lot.

Either he scammed the store, or the guy who returned it did. But it does make you wonder, why dont they make sure, they actually check return items, before selling?

Its a common mistake in Denmark atleast, that we end up with **brand new*' cellphones, with nudes of someone else, etc.

Anyone else here gonna blame the buyer because i dont know not checking the god damn thing?

 

Id be blaming the store for not checking the item when it was returned! I mean really! You don't check to make sure everything is there?!?!?!

Mods, this isn't tech news and it isn't interesting to see the forum become a bashing ground for a device they choose not to like.

While I agree with your second point: It's goddamn annoying to see the #PCMasterRace douchebags out in force on every "console" related thread, I disagree about your first point.

 

This is tech news. It's just as much tech news as anything else around here. Why is it not tech news?

Someone stole a ps4. So what? Phones are stolen every day. It's about as news worthy as the guy who was sent all the ipad nanos, but his story was correctly posted in General Discussion

I'm also from Sweden. I got a PSU that was DOA which I only noticed after a few days after opening (but before I actually used it) and I had no issue switching that PSU for a new one

Just because you don't care, and that "stolen PS4's" happen "all the time", does not mean others do not care or find this interesting.

 

What makes this news is the rarity on how it actually happens, and the hilarity of opening a PS4 box and finding a couple sacks of rocks.

I remember when we returned our 40GB PS3 for a 80GB model (The day after release) they checked to make sure that it was not a bag of rocks.

This thread is awful.

 

Apparently PC components can't, too, be replaced with rocks and then returned to the seller. Because there totally haven't been instances before where someone bought a £500 graphics card, just to find it had been replaced with a brick or a £15 graphics card instead.

 

Oh wait.

 

Maybe I'll dig up articles where that has happened with PC components and then spam "LE CONSOLEMASTERRACE XDDDDD", but only a pleb would do such a thing.

You took the words right out of my mouth, Idort.

 

Look, guys, it may look funny, but that does not means that the buyer deserves it. This is a mere deflection of concern, essentially an attitude of "this will never happen to me". That is something that you would expect teenagers to say, which speaks volumes about you immaturity in this situation. At any time, short of notice, you would get a box for a GPU or monitor that is filled with sand and dirt, where the part should be. In this scenario, would you really be laughing at the matter? I doubt it.

 

And this PCMR nonsense wasn't even funny the first time. To be frank, you need to grow the hell up! We are men here, and we should act like so.
