how does one accidently buy something though?
I sometimes forget I own some game already, either on retail or another service. Like the two different Medal of Honor compilations I bought in retail, not even that long away from each others.
(Actually, for some reason I probably believed the earlier compilation I had bought was a Call of Duty compilation, hence I didn't think twice buying the second MoH compilation... close enough I guess.)
Last week I almost bought one game from DotEmu that I already have in GOG.
I went into downtown Bangkok on Saturday and was all excited when I found 2 movies I'd been wanting for a while on sale (only 3 bucks for legal copies). Got home, unpacked my bags and put the DVDs in my collection.....
Yep....you guessed it. I already owned BOTH :)
The only saving grace was the first two were bootleg copies, so at least now I own the legal ones, LOL.
