I too have just received it - I've checked Game.co.uk and they still have it for sale at the RRP (£44.99), and with only 17 days to go, I don't really want to miss out on getting one, so unless Amazon put it back on at the price it was selling for (£34.99), looks like Game are going to get the cash.
Whaaaaat? I've had this pre-ordered for MONTHS. The original product never got a proper boxshot, maybe this is an SKU issue and they had to shut ours down and start a new one but didnt transfer the orders across. I've ordered it from play.com now... if Amazon reinstate my order I'll terminate play.com's, but only cos I think it will arrive faster with Amazon.
I've never experienced this from Amazon before, and they've lost points for sure, but I'm willing to order from them if they fix it.
I'm so pissed off it's hard to describe. I pre-ordered this in bloody June and now I get this "screw you, stupid customer" message from Amazon.co.uk. Well, screw YOU, Amazon ! You've just lost a lot of business.
I came to Amazon because Play is always giving me problems even though Amazon was expensier for me (I live in Spain) and now this... Obviously i have gone to Play.com and preordered there. But I would like to hear some reasons from Amazon

So it seems it was Bethesda who cancelled it from being sold on amazon.co.uk :o
Thank you for writing to Amazon.co.uk. I take this opportunity to assist you in this regards.

Well mine copy disappeared as well, but now its back I've pre-ordered it again because Amazon has the best delivery options over play but if its cancelled just one more time, i'm going to play.com and waterstones.co.uk forever and ever. Be warned amazon, this behaviour will not be tolerated, and by the looks of it, not by anyone!
