my god how bad just recived email from amazon saying they had "stock issues" and my copy of la noir wont be delivered until 24th anyone else have this issue and what has been done anyone got any compo ect help us all out and maybe teach amazon a lesson at same timeL.A. Noire (Xbox 360)
Preordered mine on Wednesday and it's already arrived. Unfortunately I'm working today, so the game is sitting in front of me... teasing me.... roll on 5pm!
*Edit so that it's not the smuggest post ever - sorry! Will try be helpful now :-) * No signs of stock issues on the website, as currently says for me if I order it in the next 9 hours it'll get delivered tomorrow.... maybe this is because I'm Prime?
Nothing on other preorders talks about any terms and conditions for actually delivering on the day though - have you tried calling them directly and asking? Did you select the correct option for delivery on release day ("Want to receive this the day it comes out? Select FREE First Class at checkout.")?
And if can't get it sooner, why not cancel and buy it from Tesco? Apparently they're selling it for £25 today if you buy any other chart "game", of which 2100 points (and LIVE subscription) is in the chart. So for £35 you can get the game plus 2100 MS points, which is £2 cheaper than what amazon are now selling it for.
I pre-ordered mine and it was supposed to come today and it hasn't. Wrote to them and they said if it's not here by June 1st to get in touch again. Outraged, why did I bother pre-ordering for it to be late? I have sat around all day waiting for it, for nothing to turn up. I have had stuff that I didn't pre-order come faster. I wish I'd bought it some place else now, and I'm seriously thinking about whether I order from here in the future.
Ordered my copy on 19th. Amazon told me they had despatched it on 19th to arrive on 20th - it didn't arrive. Tried to track it but carrier said they hadn't picked package up yet Amazon said they had picked it up. Was told my Amazon to wait until 26th to see if it turns up. Got email from Amazon on 26th to say it had been returned to them undeliverable on 24th May. So I still haven't got it - not happy!!
Amazon seems to be better for some than others. I ordered mine at 6.30pm on the Thursday before release and got it Friday morning at 9am. But i'm Prime so perhaps they treat us higher. Though in fairness to everyone else they shouldn't.
