Amazon Downgrades PS4 Watch Dogs Bundle

Amazon downgrades PS4 Watch Dogs Launch Bundle Preorders to Standard PS4 Launch Bundle, adjusts price accordingly.

"Product Alert

All orders for the Watch Dogs PlayStation 4 bundle will keep their place in line and we will fulfill the PlayStation 4 (without the Watch Dogs game) in accordance with your current delivery estimate. We are working on adjusting these orders and will update you as soon as we know more. "

It is likely all other versions of the game and associated bundles will be, or have been affected similarly.

Existing preorders have been "downgraded" to the basic launch version, which, of course, excludes the game. (PS3, PS4, Watch Dogs, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Why not give buyers the option to choose a different game, Watchdog voucher or downgrade?
Eonjay  +   527d ago
You can choose another game. Now its just a separate order.

The price of my order has been reduced to 399. If I want another game... I just have to preorder it.

can i change my preorder to a killzone bundle? thanks.
Sitdown  +   527d ago
You sure can.... just preorder Killzone and more than likely they will ship together.
TomShoe  +   527d ago
Still get it day one though :D

I thought this bundle came with a year of ps+ also for 10$ off

I got an email about an hour ago about this. I'm glad it got sorted out. They could have at least waved the shipping cost for all the hassle :/ I still haven't decided what game to replace WD with.

Why is it up to Amazon to fix something Ubisoft messed up? Ubi delayed the game not Amazon, why would they swallow a cost for their non-mistake?
adamandkate  +   527d ago
I agree, as annoyed as I am, i really think amazon showed the colours and have looked after the customer. They could have easyly said tough luck we will cancel your order, OR, downgraded without change of bundle and choice

instead they haven given as many alterntives as they can, in a rather fast time.

What shipping cost? It's free shipping on the PS4.

Stop being a cheapskate. If anything you should have amazon prime. If your a student and have a .edu email you can get 1 year for free.

For me this is an upgrade. I only ordered Watchdogs because it gave me the most confidence coming out of E3, my faith lies with Killzone right now.
holeshot1982  +   527d ago
I'm not even so sure I'll keep my pre-order anymore... Watch Dogs was really the only game coming out on launch day that I wanted.... Might decide to hold off until next Spring...
SolidGear3  +   527d ago
Me too
d4sholil1  +   527d ago
My sentiments exactly. A free copy of Drive Club was the perfect compliment to Watch Dogs in my opinion. Watch Dogs was the only game I was excited for though other games looked good like AC4 and BF4. Might just hold off until next year. Plus Im really looking forward to MGSV and The Division more than any other game right now; so waiting may be my personal best option.
holeshot1982  +   527d ago
Yeah I've got to where I don't like paying full price for many games anymore since they go on sale so soon after release... and like you, AC4 & BF4 was the only other two I would consider... But for me personally they are not worth 60.00.... I was looking forward to the free scaled down copy of Drive Club though.... Glad I've got close to a month to decide....
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   527d ago
To each his/her own, but personally, if the only launch game I was interested were Watch Dogs (or any other multi generation release) I wouldn't even consider next-gen right now, but simply buy it on my current gen console.

Even if next-gen versions are better, I doubt they would vary wildly in content anyway, we had seen it this whole gen, the game may looks different between console A and B, or consoles and PC or whatever... But in the end of the day it's still pretty much the same game.
kornbeaner  +   527d ago
Probably sounds dumb of me but I rather like the fact that a few games I was looking forward too are getting delayed. There are only so many games I can afford after putting down $400 on a new console too many bills to pay. Gonna be eating rice and beans for awhile just to buy my PS4.
cyclindk  +   527d ago
What if I am already eating rice and beans?

Crumbs and dust...
kornbeaner  +   527d ago
Eat rice one day then eat beans the next. If that is still not enough. Go to a Chinese food place steal the soy sauce packets. Boom! Rice with Soy sauce. Not enough? Crumbs and dust :( still not enough. Cobwebs and paint chips.
holeshot1982  +   527d ago
Yeah since this delay came up, it's got me thinking about it to, do I really want to spend 400 plus when the game I really want isn't even coming out until next year! LOL
kornbeaner  +   527d ago
I'm getting one because I want an upgrade. But these delays allow me more time to save for more games. I'll most likely get mainstream games to play with the family and next year will be when I get into the more story based games I like to play alone.
Sitdown  +   527d ago
I never understood this logic... you can't play all the game at one time anyway, so what does it hurt you to get the game a month or so after release when it will most likely be cheaper anyway. You look forward to others not being able to enjoy games because you are not in a place to afford them. Now if it's a limited edition or multiplayer game, I slightly understand.
kornbeaner  +   526d ago
This was said in the most selfish way possible. I am glad for myself. If the delay of a game is a tragic event in somebodies life, well I'm sorry but for me this delay means I can buy some games now look forward to playing this game at or around the same time as my friends in future so that we can talk about it. Total selfish act all the way.
Sitdown  +   526d ago
Haha... and I can appreciate your response. Have a bubble.
adamandkate  +   527d ago
really dont know if i should get killzone or bf4, what are peoples opinions?

still getting AC black flag tho
thekhurg  +   527d ago
Gotta support Killzone. They're really going all out with this title. EA on the other hand ... they're still in bed with MS and I'm still not convinced that BF4 won't be gimped on the PS4 as a result.
sourav93  +   527d ago
I would recommend that you watch some gameplay videos for both games, keeping in mind that one is an exclusive and another is a multiplat, then deciding. I personally am going with KZ, but if you find that BF4 is more to your liking, go with that.
Destrania  +   527d ago
Slightly off topic, but tonight on Gametrailers TV they are doing a Killzone SF special. Watch it and then decide after that :-) (that was supposed to be a reply to his comment above, not this one haha, sorry)

I went from the Watch Dogs Bundle at £389 to the Gamer Bundle (Killzone Shadow Fall, 2 Controllers and the Camera) for £429. Only an extra £30 for an extra controller and a camera! =] Something I'm sure Microsoft would charge for double price.
Sitdown  +   527d ago
You really should seek out therapy for your complex against Microsoft.
Kran  +   526d ago
wait, what? :/

To balance things out, you realise I own a 360 and I'm getting the Xbox One also right? :/

Just cause I hate on them doesnt mean I wont buy their products.

We all do that about Apple.
