I preordered mine from Amazon....

Checked the tracking number this morning and it shows it was delivered at 7.30 this morning.

ERM, NO IT WASN'T!

Just been to the sorting office and the postman that delivered it swore blind he posted it in my letterbox (I live in a flat and our letterboxes are on the wall outside) I told him he must have delivered it to the wrong letterbox or address, he swears he never.... I'm hoping a neighbour knocks on my door after work later and hands it to me. or if it's gone to the flats before mine then I have no chance as it wouldn't be the first time they have kept something of mine delivered wrongly!

Looks like a claim coming up with Amazon if I don't get it by the end of the day. Already sent an email to Royal mail customer service.

Bad luck, seriously do not trust royal mail.
As I have said before, I am starting to see the appeal of pre ordering directly off PSN and have the game instantly download on day of release over having to spend all day waiting for the post / courier to arrive (yes courier! thank you GAME for making me wait even longer and needing to arrange for someone to be in the house to sign for the delivery rather tha njust post it through the letter box!)

Sent an email to Amazon and got a speedy reply.

They are refunding me but as they have no stocks left they are not going to send me a replacement.

I have to say none of this is the fault of Amazon but their customer service gets 5 stars from me.

If the game does turn up then I will contact them and let them though, but I dont think it will. Once the money is back in my account I will get it from Tesco I guess

So you know its not Amazons fault, yet you lie to them to get a refund? In a lot of peoples eyes you would be seen as a thief.

Sorry, but where did it say I lied to Amazon? I suggest you dont jump to conclusions as it makes you look stupid.

I was completely honest with Amazon when I emailed them and explained my postman said he had posted it, but obviously not through my letterbox. I asked them if I should take this up with Royal mail or would they?
Their reply was they would refund me and get their transport team to look into the missing delivery.

Oh and for the record, I also told thenm if it does turn up in the future that I would let them though to either arrange to return it or for them to take the money again.

One thing I am not is a thief!

It is indeed appealing just a shame the pricing is so expensive compared to other pre order options out there. You would think with the costs saved they'd be able to knock a few quid off just for that alone but they seem to go with a high price. I'd download every game if the price was right.

Fair enough, I apologise.

Saying that, if I ordered from Amazon and my game did turn up I would probably be tempted to say that it didn't knowing they refund it that easy.

I'm really sorry o hear about this I would also put in a claim if this happened, you can't trust anyone these days, including postmen.

Thank God my X1 is being delivered by courier, I'd have a heart attack if it was coming via RM.

Been out this evening and was half expecting a neighbour had found it in their letterbox and had propped up against my front door when I got home. No such luck....

Looks like I'm going to have to take a look in Tesco tomorrow to see if they have any stocks still

Apology accepted

I'd be too worried they would find out if I kept it and had a refund!! I'm too honest for my own good lol

Sorry to post three in a row!

But sitting here bored, no neighbour has found my game and knocked at my door, so I shot off to the 24 hour tesco a couple of miles away (why I didn't do this before I don't know!) and purchased it. So I now have a copy.

Although I almost lost my temper in Tesco and on another day quite possibly would have done and been kicked out.
Picked up the game from the display as you walk in the door, to it to the cigarette counter and asked if I could purchase there (as I knew the display case was empty) She told me I'd have to go to the customer service counter, I told her I could see there was nobody on that counter could she do it. She said she couldnt move from her counter..... I said fair enough, pick up your phone and call someone over... She said she couldn't, I asked why and she just shrugged her shoulders and said because she had customers waiting to be served behind me.... So in no uncertain terms I called her a useless waste of space and walked off to find another staff member. Lucky for me I found the manager who opened up the customer service till and got the game for me out of the draw. I told her about the lady on the cigarette counter refusing to help and with that she called her over and gave her a stern telling off. I must admit to laughing at her on my way out.
