Best Buy has sent some customers an email apologizing for cancelling their pre-order of Destiny Limited Edition due to shortages. They are offering $50 towards the Digital Guardian Edition or Regular Edition.
My gf received this email. She called Best Buy customer service and they told her that her order was still in place and, in fact, had not been cancelled. They apologized for sending her the email. So, we will see what happens come September.
I hope that doesn't happen to me. I preordered from Future Shop (owned by Best Buy in Canada)..
For those interested, a lot of people are reporting that the $50 voucher thing is actually just $50 off anything.
Good thing I had a second order in at Newegg for this reason. I got the $50 code email, so I can't really complain too much. Friend of mine at work though, he got the cancellation email, but not the $50 code, so he's a bit miffed.
I can almost assure you Newegg will cancel your order. They have a horrible history of selling CEs they never even stock.
a case for digital downloads? i get having physical media and the extra little bonus book/toy/whatever but man... digital is so much more convenient.
After a buddy told me that the Ghost editions sold out extremely fast, I went searching online hoping to find one last second and I managed to grab one from Walmart.com. I never got an email about it being cancelled though and they also emailed me my beta code so I doubt it will happen. The beta was near perfect and I can't wait for the full game.
As much as it would suck to lose the limited edition, with 50 bucks you'd pretty much get the game for free. ugh That's a tuffy.
I ordered my LE at GameStop but they took reserves for it longer then anyone.And even opened up reserves again a few times after that.I hope they didn't over sell also.Plus being GS I don't expect anything more than a 'Sorry' and a refund if they did.
I don't think they will oversell the amount that they are approved to sell. I ordered mine at game stop and have no doubt things will be fine. 9/9/14 can't come soon enough
If anything, GameStop will "under sell" so that they have 1 or 2 on hand just in case, then sell those when pre-orders are filled. Never had a problem with a pre-order at GS. I've had issues at Wal-mart on multiple occasions(I don't think a pre order there ever goes right....), and Best Buy once or twice.
I also think this story is false and it's the Ghost edition not the Limited Edition anyway.Gameinformer.com is reporting the ghost ed.
The thing that sucks is about 10% of the LE pre-orders will end up on eBay. This always happen with Nintendo LE. Dam bottom feeders! You won't be getting my money!
Always order on Amazon! No one short changes Amazon on their shipments.
I have multiple pre orders up for sale on postedbygamers but as long as I get one for myself I'm happy. Would suck to sell one and then have to tell the person it was canceled.
Hopefully you don't even get one!
