very good point though adam, it would cost you ooh about two quid more in a shop and you wouldnt have to wait, blockbuster,sainsburys,asda to name a few do midnight opening so you bunch of losers crying about not having it on time will have no excuse to moan.i only ordered mine from Amazon because i had vouchers of which i get as little bonuses from work so it has cost me nothing to buy it, otherwise i would just go to a shop, as strange as it may seem these days to get off your idle backsides for once.
hahahaha, listen to you. Maybe some of us don't have the money to spend on another game. Maybe we live in a village and have no means of transportation to a "blockbuster,sainsburys,asda". Maybe Amazon shouldn't have promised it's customers something that it coulnd't do. Thats's why people are so pissed off :)
I live in a village 15 miles from the nearest big town. After not receiving the game yesterday I drove around to Tesco, Sainsburys etc found a copy and drove back at 8pm (I have to work during the day unfortunately).
It's not unfair or whiny to expect Amazon to deliver on what it promises; we aren't asking anything more than that, and we paid a premium for it too. This game has ended up costing me about £20 in petrol because of Amazon's incompetence. And to top it all off they promised me it'd be here by 6pm last night when it still hasn't arrived today....
Phatwa - I understand where you are coming from, and if Amazon guaranteed delivery then they should compensate you for failing to meet your expectations. My point is that its always risky hoping that a new game will arrive on your doorstep on release day - so many things can influence that not happening. If you want to ensure you get the game in your hand on release day, the only way is to purchase it from a shop :)
i'm not saying we shouldn't expect them to deliver as they would be obliged to if you requested special release date delivery, what does annoy me is the people that whinge and moan like there lives depend on it and nothing else matters, they are the people that need to get a life and not focus on things that will just make them fat, unfit and without girlfriend!!!
For you guys that live in a village, I see your point. However, HMV and Game all do pre-orders online with no delay, and you can get the price reduced at Game with reward points, trade in money etc. Game also do a deal for MW3 where you can get double the XP online if you pre-order. Amazon are slack though this year. I feel sorry gor the majority of you who have to wait a little bit longer :)
i dont mind when i get the game its the fact that they have lied and told us so many differnt verstions of whats happin it would of been nice if they could up dates us all its it was running late or had problems they are a large company so they should have kept track on our items and not make false promises
S Briggs - I agree, but paying for Prime myself I would expect them to expedite the parcel through 24-hour delivery like they normally do. They sent this via 1st class mail only, at 3pm. I'm lucky I didn't actually "pay" the £7 extra for delivery as I'm on Prime.
Made it worse their staff telling me to wait in (actually was being sent to my office) until 7pm as it would definitely come, when everyone else here had gone home too and then it didn't even come... Haha. I need a life.
"Using adjectives like "devastated" when the game arrives a day or 2 after release reveals a lot about quality of life - tards ! "
I think that kind of attitude reveals how far things have come and actually reflects a good quality of life. A 24 hour delay in playing a computer game is considered "devastating" now, of course it isn't. 150 years ago most 13 year old kids would be down the mines or working the land. We have it too comfortable now...
Anyway, back to work. Hope all those twitching the curtains get your copy soon.
Phatwa , they need to GET REAL !! I think they need to look up the meaning of the word ! Describing your situation as "devastating " because you dont get the latest game until a day or 2 late says to me that you are nothing more than a spoilt brat ... and really need to get away from the imaginary world of your xbox for a few hours and some fresh air and excercise ... Hilarious !
I pre-ordered mine .. didnt arrive yesterday , dont know / dont care if it arrives today or tomorrow . Probably wont get chance to play till weekend . Patience is a virtue and kids should be taught this !
