I will never buy Seagate again! All of their internal drives have failed me within a couple of years.

I bought one of their WD Books for a external backup, never wanted to work and if I tried to copy over files over 400 MBs it would fail every single time.

I've had two die on me, and I have a third I left in Canada at my parents with stuff on it and it's .... I don't know if it's dying for sure, but every once in a while when I plug it in it says it has data problems and I have to let it try and fix itself.

That's two and a half out of three.

Most commercial external drives outside the "armored" ones are pretty crappy. Wait till external backups become SSD and we will all be laughing at how long our data is going to last.

Canadians have trouble with Western Digital. Get Great White Northern Digital instead.

*gasps* You know where I was!

STALKERRRRRR!

But yes, for some of the games I got them there, 3 are from best buy and the other, which is Playstation all stars, I got at Shopper's Drug mart. It was bargain binned at the one I went to, only one in there and I was all, sure why not.

and Killzone was actually the game I paid for but I already paid for it when I got it from Amazon when they had a deal when you preorder Killzone and you get Soul Sacrifice for free, but they already changed my card with SS, so Killzone came to me for free lol

The box art on that Disgaead game is downright creepy. Something a pedophile might draw.

Don't worry all the characters are over 100 years old. Not sure why you thick it's creepy though since there's nothing sexuel about it in anyway.
