Well I pre-ordered the CE and just off the phone with both City Link and Amazon as they decided to change my delivery date from today to Monday, even though i paid for the quick delivery. I will not be pre-ordering anything from Amazon again.
@ A Hunter - keep an eye on your despatch as i wasn't informed that it had been delayed till Monday, Had i not been checking on it i would have sat in the house all day like a idiot.
You think that's bad? I used Amazon Prime which is supposed to be their premier delivery service, sadly they screwed up again and it has not turned up. Order page clearly states today as their expected delivery day. Postman (and his van) been.
They never seem to mess up in MY favour...
Amazon is simply not as reliable as Game or shopto.net when it comes to getting it to you on release day and they are clearly missing a trick in this department.
After sending an e-mail questioning Amazon where my item is, they replied by saying that I could be waiting for Fable III up until the 12th November, if I haven't received it by then they have offered a refund - never again ordering from Amazon.
We`ve been told that it`s now on back-order & we`ll be informed when it`s back in stock. What a total sham. On a plus point, popped to the local games shop & got the collectors edition no problems for £50. Just rang up & cancelled my order with Amazon. Will never use again for pre-orders.
what the hell is wrong with some of you??! amazon send the copy to citylink in advance for on-the-day-delivery, so hows it Amazons fault? I work for a mobile network who deliver through DHL and the delivery is not always going to be there when you wake up, ignorant morons! Plus if a citylink driver has a set route from 7am-5:30pm you could be first or last on the list of deliveries. I would take the silver spoon out of your mouth, put your dummy back in, and be patient for a delivery you spoilt brats =] good day!
The fault may directly lie with City Link, but if Amazon cannot honour their release day guarantees (particularly for customers who use Prime or pay for a quick delivery), then it's down to them to use a courier who can deliver on time.
1 amazon normally use city link to deliver prime games (up to 5pm) get it right mate. royal mail takes some games next day but if your item is marked as expected today then simply click the god damm track parcel
Having contacted City Link i was advised that Amazon, although using City Link, put through their own deliveries and arrange to get them to the main City Link depot for delivery. So if there has been a delay, it IS Amazons fault, as they have not give the item to City Link in time.
What makes me laugh is that i ordered the Fable controller as well, it was posted today and is due tomorrow, surely if this can be delivered tomorrow the game can be to???? But no Amazon told City Link to put back the delivery of the game till Monday.
So please don't come on here calling us all brats and ignorant morons.......because the above is WHY it IS Amazons fault.
agreed. i bought this on amazon so it would come on relese day. i was told mine wouldnt show till monday so i went to blockbuster and rented it for now only to get bk and royalmail arrived just as i open the door -.- so because of mis info ive now got 2 lol. pre orded fallout for my husband last week from game as amazon collector edi was £40 more, my husband recived his on the wed before (2 days early) at 7.30am and they didnt even take the money for the game till friday. was very very happy with them lol we are not bratz we have been waiting a very long time for this game and paid for a servise to recive it on time. im sure u wouldnt wait longer than an hour for your steak and chips. as for me yes i ended up getting it on time but was told otherwise resulting in me paying £7 more to rent it. not the end of the world no but anoying nether the less.
In reply to A.J Higham (probably feeding an obvious troll)
"Why do you expect a service you paid for? I have to work too hard! I don't get paid enough! Life is hard for me! Blah blah wah wah etc"
On a serious note, it's not a drivers fault if they can't get their deliveries done on time - unless their incompetent or bone idle - it's the companies fault, and if they want to keep business, they need to do better. That or go bankrupt.
Mine was sent by Royal Mail using Amazon Prime's next day delivery service. Not City Link! This 'expedited' delivery costs around £6.49 normally. Maybe you should think before you rant 'A.J. Higham'. I paid over and above for a service I did not receive. Still I notice you have left the thread. Probably best when you have nothing to offer whatsoever and never did.
on a plus side game is really good, been able to play co op with husband now as we have 2 copies for a week -.- and co op is very good we even got married and have a home. alot better than what seemed to be an unfinished part of fable 2
