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 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.
