Well... I didnt pre-order...
Can I still act pissed?
I wonder if this affects Canada as well. My friend will be mighty pissed if that is the case.
A game or DVD valued at less the $20. Nice compensation guys. They should give away a free new game valued at $50.
I was in a gamestop today and you could tell by there voices they were not happy and were shocked.
I mean it sucks, but what do you expect. Sony made it clear that only a select relative few will actually own a PS3 this year and half of next.
Wonder if this could lead to a lawsuit...
I was in EB a few weeks ago and they knew they weren’t going to get enough. There conversation went something like:
(Looking at a sheet of paper) “What the hell are we going to do if we don’t get enough?” (running finger down the list) There is no way we are getting enough PS3’s.
“I don’t know, going to have to ask Mike how he wants to handle it.”
“I hope I have that day off, if we run out people are going to be pissed and I don’t want to be the one telling them.”
no, it can't lead to a lawsuit. This has happened before, it happened with PS2, it happened with Xbox and Xbox 360 and its going to happen with PS3. A preorder only guarantees a person will receive a system according to first come first serve on the preorder list and when the shipments come in, not necessarily on the day of launch.
This has to REALLY hurt everyone who preordered a PS3.
This is certainly no surprise.
lol @ all those people selling their preorders on ebay!
I doubt it will stop at GS. Everyone who's been paying attention knows that Sony was cutting it close on the numbers, and probably won't deliver what was promised, at least on Day 1.
No surprise there I mean I could have told you that much. the initial price doesnt mean all that much there is still huge demand and sony likes shortages.
Omg forgot about that. Fucking awesome. Massive refunds all around
No lawsuit. EB/Gamestop, when you preordered either PS3 or Wii, stapled a little sticker thing to the reciept stating that a pre-order does not guarentee you will have a system on launch.
My sticker says:
As Gamestop cannot control production and shipping issues by the manufacturer, the reservation deposit will only guarentee a spot in line when your reserved product is available. The Reservation Deposit system does not guarentee reciept of a system available to purchase at launch."
Though I'm not worried. I pre-ordered the Wii
what sucks is that the employees arent getting screwed outta it...seeing they got first dibs.
I'm so glad I don't want this overhyped, overpriced, overinflated brick. Glad I'm getting a Wii.
Won't be the first time. Had a few preorders go bad with them before. Frankly, Gamestop annoys me. Get tired of sayin "No , I dont want to preorder a damn game!"
"But if you don't then you wont be able to get it"
Yeah whatever. Everytime they say that Ive always been able to find it somewhere else like TRU or Walmart etc. Too much hassle with them. Rather go somewhere else and be in and out without them trying to push some bs on me.
Yeah, they tried that shit with my wife when she said, "No, I don't want to pre-order Viva Pinata." She got it for me from Best Buy before the Gamestop even had it in their damn store!
