I've had so many problems pre-ordering games from Amazon that I'll never do it again. Only games (and books and DVD's and everything else) that are out already, they're pretty good about delivering those fast. For release date games, I'm doing brick-and-mortar from now on, I got burned too many times. I had to wait almost a month for NHL 2011 after pre-ordering it 3 weeks in advance! That's a month AFTER the release date, so it turned out to be about 6-7 weeks from the date I ordered in total.
Everytime I read posts like these I never understand it. I've ALWAYS gotten games and such on release date when i've chosen that option. plus even if i didn't, i think i could wait an extra day or two. thats not gona kill me. but i guess some people MUST get the day it comes out.
I don't have a big need for games on release day, but I did need NHL in time for my husband's birthday, so I thought ordering it 3 weeks before the release date would be plenty of time, especially since his birthday was 2 weeks after the release date. Amazon missed it by a mile! There were stacks of NHL games in every GameStop & Best Buy for weeks and mine didn't even ship until well after the birthday. I don't mind waiting a few days or even a week, even if I pre-order. But waiting 3 weeks til after the release date to ship even though I pre-ordered? That's just rude.
Never buy from Gamestop. If you don't have a preorder their on release date, good luck picking up the game. Plus, they open up new games and put them into envelopes when the game has been out for a month or so. I've never had a problem getting a game on time from Amazon on release date delivery.
it's false advertising, and if it influenced you to buy via Amazon then you deserve compensation for your loyalty. If my game doesn't show up today, it's being returned. I can wait to play it and i could have already gone out and bought it at a store and be playing it hours ago.
haven't had one bad failure yet from amazon from the release day delivery for world of warcraft cata and lich. they came through but due to my demographics just really late at night around 6pm. though i probably won't release day the next warcraft expansion if they have it on stream.
Well I pre-ordered Battlefield 3 for PC and got an email with the tracking number the night before it shipped. Sadly I cannot say the same for my pre-order of Modern Warfare 3. Nothing other than "Shipping Soon" shows up on my order history. Well the game's official release is tomorrow and it's 6:36pm locally already and it still hasn't been shipped.
I have two other pre-orders for games (Skyrim for Friday) and Assassin's Creed Revelations (Nov 29) and I'd like Amazon to understand one thing. If I don't get MW3 by tomorrow, I'm canceling the pre-orders for both upcoming games. I don't give a damn if K-Mart sold games early to people and got in trouble. You're supposed to ship the darn game in time for its release date. If you miss it, I'll take my business elsewhere.
And that would be a shame because I've been a loyal Amazon customer for years now. Please get on the ball and get my game shipped in time.
yea ive been ordering from amazon and my modern warfare 3 console hasnt been shipped yet.. game is coming out tomorrow and it is 9:25PM i put money down for this product for release date or i would have just bought it at bestbuy.
