Hey I was expecting my copy of ODST to come today with the Johnson code and the beta key. So far, I have had nothing, and I was really frustrated. I had gotten no ODST, no code, and no sleep. I am now going to play.com
I ordered mine 14th september. Everyone I know in my area has received theirs and we even received other deliveries so if Amazon blame postal strikes they're just pointing fingers. This isn't good enough. I'm buying all games (except MW2 and L4D2 which I've unfortunately already ordered from here) from GAME or play.com from now on. Amazon, get ur act together!! >:(
Absolutely gutted not to have the game today. I clicked the where's my stuff bit on Amazon to track my order and it is estimated to be delivered for 26th September.
In hindsight, had I known this I would have purchased from a high street store. Assuming it does not arrive tomorrow I will be purchasing it from a high street store and returning amazon's copy unopened when it arrives.
Play.com are brilliant for pre-orders, usually delivering on the day of release or sometimes a day early. I discovered this a while back when I pre-ordered GTAIV from Amazon, only to be told it would arrive about 5 days after release! I promptly changed to Play, and, low and behold, it arrived on the day of release (or maybe that was the one that came a day early).
I finally got ODST, and the pre order code. I nearly lost the code because it was in junk. Why is this code in the Junk when clearly it isnt. Plus Amazon promised us to deliver the day of release. REPENT, REPENT!!!
J.Franklin, Amazon, as well as all retailers get the stock about a week before release. This is because if a retailer gets the stock late it wont overlap the release date and so they won't have angry customers. Amazon dispatch their product one day before release in all circumstances which is stupid as because there is a postal strike most amazon deliveries will be late. Whereas companies like play.com change their dispatch date depending on what is occuring e.g a postal strike and so you will get your product on the release date and maybe even before release. This obviously shows that Play.com care far more for their customers than Amazon do. Halo Odst is now two days late and I think you'll find I wont be using Amazon again for things like this.
Millions of starving, 10's of millions die each day through genecide, a father fights to see his child to be told no by some self indulgent idiot in a wig, global recession with masses made redundant fighting to keep their homes and families together and YOU worry about not having your delivery on the day, put your life in perspective and be grateful you have the money to purchase such privileges let alone the equipment and the lovely conditioned environment to play them in. IDIOTS! You lack sleep because of " No ODST and no code" idiots!
Mr. Shaw don't you think thats a bit of an over exageration, I mean "10's of millions die each day through genecide" if 10 million people died a day thats 3.6 billion people dieing a year. Considering theres only 6 billion people in the world you may want to change that figure. Anyway people have a right to complain and if you care about comparing our lives to people it lets say.. Africa why dont you go and sell your xbox for money to give to charity. Plus I know you have an xbox other wise why the hell would you be on this discussion page.
lmao Shaw got told. Havnt even brought ODST but read that post and found it halarious. Instead of moaning and critising people on here go and do something about it Shaw. "Put your life into perspective" and find something better to do.
Shaw was right, yeh ok he over exaggerated, but he is basically saying, there are a lot more important things to be worrying about than your copy of Halo 3 ODST.. Who cares when it comes, just look forward to it.
Wake up morons. A: High volumes of pre-orders cause delays, B: post strikes cause delays, C: THE EARLIER YOU PREORDER THE QUICKER YOU GET THE ITEM! I preordered mine eight months in advance and got it on the release day, 22nd September!
I preordered aug 17th, game was dispatched on sep 21st and i got the game on sep 23rd in Ireland, thats without first lass delivery so you cant blame amazon, postal strikes or stock shortages is what caused it not amazon.
