Best Buy makes up for BioShock Infinite preorder fiasco with free BioShock Infinite

SideQuesting.com:

"Best Buy is honoring many of its canceled BioShock Infinite preorders with free copies of the game. That's right: some of the canceled orders are getting fulfilled, for free." (BioShock: Infinite, PS3, Xbox 360)

Can't just pre order again?

logically, yes, but if it was their **** up, then offering the game for free to those whose orders were inexplicably canceled is a pretty nice gesture.

Makes me wish I had preordered earlier... oh well, I'm still buying it.

So this is for people who ordered online only? And for consoles only? I pre-ordered in store for pc.

Probably only for people who had their orders cancelled.

I *think* just the online orders of either the Limited or Songbird editions, not the standard edition. And only the canceled ones.

I think he means in relation to the Wizard Edition of Ni No Kuni :)

A very classy act by Best Buy. Many other retailers could take note of this. I think is safe to assume Gamestop would have never done something like this. Well done Best Buy.

Wow. that is surprising but good for Best Buy. didn't see that coming.

I don't understand how they will provide free copies when the original problem was that they oversold. In regards to people who just ordered the Premium or Standard Editions that is probably possible but not for the Ultimate Songbird Edition unless they had a stock pile that they could have accessed to fulfill the original orders anyway.
