Yes, unless we indicate in the product description that it is pre-owned.
At the moment, VG Stores does not purchase pre-owned products, however there are plans underway to commence this. See here for further information on this.
We source our products from various sources; packaging of the product might therefore not be in English language. We however endeavour to ensure that the the in-game language is English. All the same, we cannot guarantee the exact list of languages available for each game. For more specific information, you will need to consult the publishers official website.
Please refer to this article. Due to the organic nature of new generation gaming, publishers release updates from time to time (including on day of release) which require the internet to download. We can therefore not guarantee whether or not you would require internet in order to play a video game software you purchased, or in fact how much GB you would be required to download.
The new generation consoles which we deal in are region-free i.e. there is no region locking. However, care should be taken when purchasing DLC and digital codes – these are region locked to the region you set up your PSN Account. For more on this topic, please see this article.
It is our objective to deliver all pre-orders within the prearranged delivery time frame – by the official release date. We therefore continually review our procurement procedure and our delivery partners to ensure that we satisfy our customers’ expectations.
There may however be occasions where due to unforeseen circumstances or human error, delivery is delayed. If there is an issue that affects your order from reaching you on the release date, we will contact you to advise you of the issue and notify you of a date when you should expect delivery.
Please ensure that all contact information you provide us with is correct and accurate as we will contact you through the contact details provided on the order.
