I just got an email from them, sent as a reply to an email I sent through Amazon. They said that it was going to be dispatched today. Doubt I'll get it tomorrow, but the wierd thing is that the email came from something called X-bite Games, not clearance games as thier appear on Amazon. Odd.
Chad, just wanted to let you know that sometimes the order status does not update when you buy from marketplace sellers. So even though it says the dispatch date is between 25th April - 1st May like on mine, it may still get sent out tonight without you even knowing until it turns up at your house. Obviously I don't blame you for getting frustrated cos I am too, but I just thought you want to bear this in mind
It really looks like there will be a delay people. Just got this message from clearance:
Thank you for your email. Unfortunately due to the high demand of this game there has been somedelays with your order. We will despatch this game as soon as we can, either today or tomorrow. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
So more than likely, we will be waiting til thursday to play!
They are talking complete bulls**t. They continued to take preorders up until yesterday so they were fully aware of how many orders they were taking on. I don't care how much they apologise, if it isnt here tomorrow i'm leaving bad feedback. I hate it when companies promise you something and then go back on their word.
*Sorry chad this isnt in response to u, its to Dans post
same here Dan: if i knew this.... i would have waited outside blockbusters at midnight and paid for a copy.... i only ordered this from clearance as they clearly stated i would recieve before or on the release date..... here's me thinking thats the whole point of a pre-bloody order!! if it doesnt come tomorrow ill leave neg feedback and go and buy a copy and they can stick this one back where it dont shine... if anyone at all as recieved there copy from clearance could you let me know thanks pol
I pre-ordered from clearance games my post has just arrived, no game! Waste of time pre-ordering. Probably go into town today and hopefully pick up a copy instead. Like to know if anyone else who pre-ordered got it today.
hi, just had our post and guess what, its arrived from clearance games and tesco as well. My son is well chuffed. I hope you all get yours. I think all the emails and phone calls did it. I will be leaving good feedback.
Nice one... I am at work but my Amazon account does not say its been dispatched. Can I ask Mrs K A Marshall: Did your dispatch status change and did you receive an email from Clearance saying your game had dispatched? I have a vague hope of also finding a parcel from clearance when I get home.
hi dan, have you had your post this morning. I got an email in response to my email to them yesterday stating that the game would be dispatched. I then got one from them themselves stating it had been dispatched and to enjoy it. I also got an email from amazon marketplace from 365games (their sister company) that it had been dispatched. I did find a phone number too and rang this place and asked if they could send it recorded delivery and i would pay the extra. They said the order would have to be cancelled and then i would have to reorder from 365games. I did not as this was too risky but i got it today anyway. I hope this helps. When did you actually order it. I ordered on 24th April.
I am at work so am ignorant of the post right now. I ordered it ages ago, the 20th. They did send an email saying there had been delays. No dispatch email yesterday. Can't access hotmail at work so can't check today. So looks like I will have to wait til tomoroow : (
I really feel for you Dan. I feel guilty as you ordered before me. I think maybe with all the emails and the telephone call they acutally got this to me on time. I really hope there is a nice surprise when you get home. Good luck.
just looked at the one from clearance games (my son is selling one to his mate) as i ordered one from tesco as well and this one from clearance says on the back "not for sale in the uk". It is a pal game but states this on the back. I have googled this and apparently if you ever try to trade this in it would be worthless here. Anyone else got this on theirs.
I did notice on 365games website that there was a disclaimer at the bottom stating that the game would work online but may not work on uk servers, guess it means that its not uk stock, from US or Asia maybe? I'm off to game to see if they have a copy, never going to buy from these guys again.
will this game work ok. I don't understand about this uk servers business. My son has his mate coming to collect it later and i don't him to take it if its going to not work or be difficult to work. Any help appreciated.
I have just looked on 365 website and it says This version will work online but we cannot guarantee it will connect to UK servers It certainly did not say that on amazon.
This sucks badily. The post just came and there was no sign of the game. This was such a waste of time, put me off pre-ordering for life. Is anyone else buying a copy from store regardless of clearance? Could the copy be returned because they did not keep to their release date promise?
