View Full Version : Someone at Bethesda (or 2K) screwed up

So I get my copy of Oblivion home. I'm all happy that I got Wal-Mart to match CompUSA's advertised price of $39.99 on this game. I crack open the box. The DVD was a bit out of its case, no big deal.

I empty out the contents, and much to my surprise, out pops a second DVD. Looks exactly like the first. I installed and played for a little while. I exit, then out of sheer curiosity, I put in the other DVD. Game loads up and plays perfectly.

As such, I can conclude that for my $39.99, I have received two very legitimate copies of Oblivion. I'm more confused than anything else. This is one of the most unusual things I've ever encountered in all my years of gaming.

Haha, wow, you sure scored on that one! I've heard of this happening before, but it's pretty rare, so you just got really lucky it seems. So uhh, if you're looking for someone to take that extra copy off of your hands for half what you paid for the game...;)

I feel sorry for the next guy.

Fortunately, mine from Wal-Mart came in it's singular, paper-sleeved goodness.

I bought Unreal: Gold like 4 years ago and when I opened it, inside was a copy of Diablo I.

And Best Buy wouldn't let me exchange it.

Best post ever. But lets be honest here. If you didn;t have diablo 1 already, you got the better end of that deal. although unreal was good haha.
