Over a month ago I preorder my x360 and payed the deposit at well know UK game retailer GAME.
They didn't stop taking preorders till last week and now they are telling me that I may not get a 360 on release day even though a preordered last month and payed my deposit.

They weren't as keen to tell me this when I handed over my money.

The bloody cheek!

Has anyone else in the UK preorder from GAME? Is anyone is the same boat as me?

I will get an xbox 360 on release day, perhaps before.

I'm working for PCWORLD now so as soon as they come in the wearhouse it's mine.

I'll just lose my deposit at GAME though.

I ordered from Game... but i ordered before the date on the website that says 'all preorders taken before this date will be ok' blah blah

You must have been too late.I hear dixons/Currys/Comet etc etc are only just taking preorders so you should still be able to get one at launch.

Heres the official game statement:

I HAVE ALREADY ORDERED - CAN YOU GUARANTEE DELIVERY FOR LAUNCH DAY?
If you ordered before 14:30 on 22nd August 2005 then, essentially, yes. But we can only guarantee this as much as anyone can guarantee anything - it's never going to be cast-iron. So, allowing for acts of God or alien invasion, then yes. We're gamers too, and understand why you want it on day of release (believe us, we do as well) - and we will do everything in our considerable power to get it to you in time. Our track record on preorder delivery, especially when it comes to new hardware launches, is untouchable.

Ouch! Just ask for your deposit back as they can no longer guarantee you a launch day release - how'd you get a job at PC world by the way? Thought you had to be 20 to work there? Play.com have guaranteed me delivery 1 day before launch smile.gif

You could always go down to the store with your reciept and politely ask to speak to the manager about it. I'm sure he/she will be happy to accomodate your needs.

No need to be polite,you were mislead into believing you were pre-ordering an item that would be available at a certain date,as it clearly is not,you are entitled by law for your deposit refunding,dont take any shit either.

Game are very good were i live but i suppose it depends on the manager.Always ask for the organ grinder,never speak to the monkeys wink.gif

Ok, I'll get it at PCworld before release day if GAME says I can't have it.

Nice smile.gif Wish I knew the Pcwold boss too - 10% even on the 360? £27 off sounds very good... Plus you'll get it a day early I reckon!

Yep.

Sorry I couldn't send the file last night, it was on you send it for 1/2 and hour but still it was uploading as like I said, I had to get some sleep.

Besides, by the looks of it it seems better movies of PD0 are out.
