Hey reply to this post if you think Amazon should stop playing silly beggars and reduce the price back to 29.99 before next week. Maybe if there is enough replies they'll sort their act out.

I'll demand 29.99 cuz I contacted them when that was the price and didn't pre-ordered then cuz amazon said that the collector's edition would be available.

yeah, thought it was gonna stay at 29.99 so havn't preordered yet!

its a bit cheap that they're making us cough up another 7 quid.

I'm always happy with the service that Amazon provides, they are very prompt and I always receive the goods without hassle.

However, like the rest I am a little disappointed that some on here have had the chance to pre-order at a cheaper price and we don't get that same chance.

If you lower it to the price it was before - I guarantee I'll pre-order my copy right away now!

I agree - Amazon should put the price back to £29.99

It's so unfair how they suddenly jack up the price.

One day it's £29.99, another day it's £37.99

if they need to put the price up they should give their customers a warning

they put the prices up to try and encourage you to pre-order the game earlier next time.

I agree too, either that or I'll wait and buy it somewhere else. 29.99 would be instant buy from me!

To be fair, you should have bought it back then. It doesnt charge you till they ship anyway, so I don't see why you bothered to wait it out. I bought mine, and I'm getting a £29.99 copy. Considering they still do it £2 cheaper than game and gamestation stop complaining. Should have realised at some point towards release they would put up the price to meet competitors.

Most of was wait because we were hoping that amazon would have the limited edition available. That's why.

If a deal looks really good then pre-order it like I did. As someone has stated, you don't get charged until the item ships. So until the item ships on release day you have all that time to cancel the order if you find it cheaper elsewhere or you think a different version may come out. It was £29.99 for about a week. If you missed out then its your own fault.
If you miss a BOGOF deal at the Supermarket do you insist they still honour the price even though you missed it? Offers come, and offers go.

Signed, i would love to get it back at 29.99 again.

Pretty much sums up the thread! Thanks Amazon for the £29.99 deal =)

the fact we missed it isnt the complaint the complaint is the lack of information given to us by amazon we I have an email saying i can purchase this for 29.99 and it dosent say when or if the offer will end.

Yep - Tis is it, Amazon need to be more clear as to when the deal will expire.
All they have to write is "Buy it now for £29.99 - offer ends xxth Jan 2010", or something like that.

I contacted HMV about a really good offer on something. I think it was a DVD. The offer price on the item page was still showing. Yet when I added the item to my basket it came up at the original price.
So I contacted HMV and they said that they had bought XX amount of units of this dvd from a wholesaler at a special discount rate, allowing them to offer the item at a discount price. Apparantely the last few units had just been bought minutes before I found the offer which is why the price had been put back up. They just hadn't updated the item page yet.
So in summary HMV could only offer the discount price for XX amount of units. You can't put a date on when they would all be sold by.

You don't pay for something until it ships. Simple. If something looks like it'd be a good price pre-order it. You can cancel it closer to the time if a 'special' or different version comes out and takes your fancy and you'll incur no cost.

A lot of reasons ITT for pre-ordering early and why their prices change. As someone points out offers come and go, it's not up to Amazon to inform people of price changes unless you have entered into a contract with them (i.e. ordering the game). I don't particularly want e-mails from amazon everytime a CD or game changes price in pre-orders as most of the time I wouldn't be interested.

£29.99 was always going to be a good price, one that wasn't going to last (considering that other sites pre-order prices were £10 more) and as I mentioned above you can immediately pre-order to secure a copy at that price and cancel it later if need be. So if you saw it previously and didn't pre-order, then more fool you.

Posted on 25 Jan 2010 12:28:36 GMT
I can understand the price going back up once released (You have missed your opportunity to pre-order)

How silly for an offer to change whilst on pre-order?

Those that have will get refunded any difference if the price goes down right? Yet they have only pre-ordered the game.

So if we pre-order the game too then Amazon should really refund us the difference the other 'pre-order' customers get the game for. After all it is a pre-order price that should be fair to all right?

This is what the argument is, the offer should stand for all. The same until a pre-order offer no longer exists.
