I also got that email, did you guys also buy it from Target.com off of Amazon. I'm paying $14.10 for one day shipping for an item that I thought I was receiving today and I didn't. I think Target oversold their inventory of Xbox 360 Band Kits and denied to tell us this until the day we were supposed to receive it. I think it's ridiculous that they hold out on us, I was excited for today but now I'm mad that they decide to tell us on the day of "delivery" that we won't be receiving what we've been waiting for.
Well, I pre-ordered and now they say they don't know when it can ship - same note as above. Irritating to say the least, I had several options but went with Amazon/Target because I have had good luck with them.
I don't know why Amazon shows units available during pre-order but cuts us off on release day.
I guess it's really time to expand my on-line shopping universe beyond Amazon.
I sent them an email last night about it not shipping and having to pay $14.10 for it to be delivered for today, I just received a reply saying that it was back-ordered and they took the charge of one day shipping off of my order for free one day shipping. I think I'll just wait it out now.
Right now i don't know what to do. I feel that if i buy it at best buy, I run the risk of getting faulty hardware, so if I wait, i probably won't get faulty hardware. Has anyone bought a faulty unit from best buy? Should I buy from best buy, or wait with amazon. what to do...
And I thought it was only me...I pre-ordered early Sept. from Buy.com and have not received my Guitar Hero for Xbox 360 as well. I was told that the prelaunch was sold out even though they still took my order. It was extremely frustrating for me to find this out on Monday when I was in the stores Sunday and was available everywhere! Now of course, everywhere is sold out!!! Fortunately, I just found it at Walmart.com. Hopefully I will receive this one!
I'm having the same problem, and it's November 6th already and they still can't tell me where my item even is! They say that they are unable to determine a ETA and that they are experiencing a delay in fulfilling my order. I bought mine from this company called Caimanoutlet through amazon.
I ended up just canceling the order and tried to go get it. I drove around for about and hour and a half before I finally found it at a video rental store. I got it for about ten dollars less than I would have paid for it on Amazon.
