Store Monkey: No.
Me: Why not? You said I could if I pre-ordered.
Store Monkey: They're point of sale display items and are not for sale.
Me: But you have loads.
Store Monkey: Yeah and they're for display for customers to see to entice them to pre-order the game.
Me: Even the other ones which are behind the front row of steelbooks?
Store Monkey: Yes.
Me: What do you do with them after the game is released?
Store Monkey: They get thrown away.
Me: So why can't I can't I have one?
Store Monkey: They're point of Display...
Me: Fuck off you prick...

-Leaves store infuriated-

The end!
Lesson: Dressing up in drag and asking for steelbooks doesn't work.

Next time send a real girl!

Weird that . . .although the website customer service sucks, I've always found the store people friendly and helpful by and large.

I had a similar story but in reverse to yours. Saw the Medal of Honor Warfighter steelbook in a store prior to release and enquired about it. "You can have one now if you pre-order" I was told. Pre-ordered knowing full well that Forza Horizon was out the same day. Changed my pre-order to that and nobody asked for the steelbook back.

Now all I have to do is wait for the inevitable tumble in price on the MOH Warfighter. Nice !!!

Hasn't grown on me yet. The female character is more appealing to me though

Who's that guy on the cover? If there's a steelbook it'll be better if they put a big daddy as the main art. I haven't played any bioshock games but at least I know what a big daddy is.
