    I have pre-ordered FOC for the PC about a month ago from Gamestop. But when I went online at midnight tonight, it says it it is still pre-purchase. GameStop PC Downloads : Transformers. Anyone else have this problem?

    Good lord. I'm glad I'm not the only one with this problem. At the time that I pre-ordered the game from Gamestop, a Steam version wasn't even announced yet. Gamestop was the only provider for the PC version up until that point along the Activision Store. Is Gamestop going to work this out?

    Donno.. but they better compensate for the whole fiasco they caused. And I dont mean the me not getting the game when it came out, I mean the whole mess they did, including the whole order messup..

    Because of them I wasn't the first one to make Scourge/Nemesis Prime. :c

    Well, I'm calling Customer Service when they open at 8:00 this morning. I'm straightening this out and when it's all said and done, the game better not take all day to download. If you'd like to call too, to let them know that this problem is beyond one person, here's the number: 1-800-883-8895. I'll let you know what they say.

    Same here. It's 7:30 AM

    Hopefully we can both receive compensation.

    You can buy from Gamestop, but you can't use it. They give you the code(s) to register to Steam.

    Yes and no. They won't have a physical copy if that's what you're asking. You'll most likely be handed a sheet of paper with your code, or a CD box with a code, but no CD inside.

    That, or they could be real cheap and have the code on a very easily losable receipt.

    If you're in the US and referring to a PC copy, yep, I'm serious.

    Wow. Just another fault on their part and one step closer to compensation. According to the page I'm looking at, and unless it's incorrect, the Customer Service line is open from 8:00 AM-8:00 PM.

    I'm sticking with Steam for now on. Gamestop will only be for console/handheld games. They did a service, and failed badly on it.
