I waited with baited breath for the postman this morning, only to be dissapointed! I wanted the game today, i wasnt bothered with the pre order code.should have gone down and picked a copy up instore. Now i have a worthless pre order code and no game to use it in!!!!Poor show Amazon, last time i pre order any games with you!
Completely disappointed with Amazon. No game on launch day, and there's all my online friends playing it.... Will not be ordering anything this "big" from Amazon in future. Check out Play dot com people, they WILL deliver on time - I know that for a fact because all my friends that are playing at the moment got it from them yesterday!!
As I said in other discussions, I am sticking to Play.com, Zavvi and Shopto from now on. All my friends who pre-ordered with them have their games today or got them before today. Amazon on the other hand... For a large retailer the service is horrendous, you would think for such a large launch they'd be prepared? At least I realised before I ordered Modern Warfare. Shopto are selling it cheaper and will compensate if it's not there on release day.
I just checked my mail and it says they sendt it the 21th september, and that ill get it the 27TH! SEPTEMBER!....srsly last time im preordering something like this from Amazon.... It really sucks to get the game 5 days after i thought i would have it...
This whole forum has said the same and I agree. Pre-ordered, nothing today, all my friends around my neighbourhood got theirs and we had some packages delived so its definately not the postal strikes. Never ordering from here again.
This has been such a let down. My son came home from school looking for his game but nothing had arrived in the post. This is the first time we have ever pre-ordered a game and it hasn't arrived on the launch day. I am very disappointed and annoyed that my son will have listen to all his friends on about it tomorrow. I won't be using Amazon for launch games again in future, or anything else for a while. :(
Same problem here. I got an email yesterday saying it had been sent. Have they not heard how slow the British postal system is. They should have sent it last Thursday. Very disappointing. Where can we complain? I want my money back!!!!!
I totally agree with everyone on this forum. I have preordered games from other retailers in the past and always received the goods before the launch date. As Budo states in a previous post, I had my delivery email yesterday, there is no way this is good enough to receive the game on launch day and Amazon should know this. Very disapointed.
Somone call an ambulance,Amazon has just shot itself in the foot!!!!!Ended up going to Morrisons and picked up a copy for £29.99 and ive already got my email for the sgt. johnstone code!!!!Next time a big game release is due Im gonna check Asda,Morrisons,Tesco etc.Also most big stores are now open 24 hours, no waiting on the postman!
Play.com deliveries are free & always arrive on the morning of the release date (sometimes a day early) Amazon dont do this because they charge for the Amazon prime delivery service. All my preorders come from Play now, I only use Amazon for older games when they are often cheaper.
Seems going to Gamestation yesterday was the best decision i ever made looking at how upset people appear to be on this thread, my local branch opened at 12 til 1 for fans to pick up their copy, i suspect others across the country would have been as well. That or going to the megastore supermarkets leaves nothing to chance.
