Amazon Giving $10 for Watch Dogs Delay

Amazon are giving $10 to those that have been "inconvenienced" by the Watch Dogs delay. An email was sent out today to customers who had previously pre-ordered the Watch Dogs PlayStation 4 bundle. (PS4, Watch Dogs)

Amazon reaching into its own pocket for Ubisoft mess , HOW DARE THEY DO NOT GIVE $20 BACK?!

Why should Amazon be giving anything? They're not responsible for Ubisofts delay. Ubisoft should be the ones doing something.

If you want to be ungrateful, you can give me your $10 credit.

Amusingly, I think Amazon is kind of using this to get back at Ubisoft for making them deal with this. Assassin's Creed IV isn't eligible for the credit; I checked with customer service even. I was planning on picking ACIV as my alternative to Watch Dogs, but thanks to this, probably not, lol.

fair play to them since it was out of their hands and had nothing to do with them!

shame they cant pay their taxes they made 4 billion in the uk last year and only paid 2.5mil in taxes...

I got the e-mail earlier. Love this!

I am happy they did this However you can only use it for 7 games, not sure if that list will expand if you decide not to use it now and wait and see if Second son or something will be added:

Madden 25
NBA2K
FIFA 14
Killzone SF
BF4
COD Ghosts
Knack

Thats it!

It's for launch games, as a sort of apology to those that had intended for Watch Dogs to be their first big PS4 game. Infamous isn't launching until next summer, so it doesn't really fit in the same category.

Try this and see if you can apply it to your pending order (if you do such as the PS4 or another pre-order that hasn't shipped) you can apply it to anything, even pending purchases that are on backorder, think you have to go to "Change payment method", then Order Summary #xxxxxxxxxx and then it should have "Important Message
You have gift account balance of $xx.xx" to apply the balance to the order.

I already checked with customer service. Unless I got an inexperienced tech, they said it only applied to certain games, and those games were the ones listed in the link off of the email. Basically it only applies to the AAA launch PS4 games, minus Assassin's Creed IV; I think that last omission is just Amazon spiting them for creating this situation in the first place, lol.

exsturminator01 - Ah okay, worth a shot to see if that works though if you have a pending order. I have a gift card balance on Amazon and can still apply it to my Ghosts pre-order, dunno about this situation.

I will try and see, I mean i understand why I just wish there were more launch games to choose from, I am getting BF4 digitally so this wont work for me for that. But maybe Knack or Madden
