Ubisoft today revealed a special pre-order deal, which includes a discount and a bonus Playstation Home item, for the Playstation Network version of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game.
As awesome as this deal is, it doesn't seem to be active now. I was just over on Ubi's website trying to get the deal, and when you add it to your cart it shows up as $14.99, not $9.99. Earlier it was marked as $9.99 and some people got it at that price, but they ended up changing it even though the price tag still said $9.99. Now it all seems to be at $14.99. But regardless, apparently you can also use the coupon code THANKS10 to get another $1.00 off.
and the $1.00 off coupon code is "10THANKS" instead of THANKS10. So people can get this game for $8.99 + tax or no tax depending on your state. You will get the 12 digit PSN download code for both the game and the t-shirt (on their site and sent to your email) after you buy it, so all you have to do is enter the PSN code on August 10th. Very awesome, thanks Ubisoft!!
I have no idea what the geniuses over at Ubisoft are doing, but they've fixed it now... sort of. I called them to see if I could get the price they were advertising with the pre-order, and they were no help at all. I couldn't even get a word out edge-wise, they were just telling me that "we don't give out information on a game before release"... what does that even have to do with my problems pre-ordering? I have no idea, but they were no help. Well anyway, I refreshed the site again about 15 minutes ago and the price displayed and showing up in my cart was back down to $9.99. The coupon code "10THANKS" is also working now (my apologies on not typing it right earlier. I couldn't edit my post above). But I still ran into problems through checkout. It continuously gave me errors when I tried to use debit or credit cards (cards I had used not even 24 hours prior on other sites), and eventually I had to use Paypal in order for it to work. But the total checkout cost with the promo code came out to be $8.99. So I'm glad I was able to get the pre-order, but overall I'm very disappointed with Ubisoft customer service. EDIT: Heh, seems I replied less than a minute after you Dir_en_grey, but yeah that's basically what I was saying :P.
For people having problems with buying with credit card, make sure that if you are using plugins like NoScript or Adblock etc that it is not blocking some of the scripts needed to run the credit card check out and information forms. For NoScript you can right click and select temporaray allow whatever script shown on that check out page. Then revoke temporary permissions after check out.
Yeah I thought it might be something like that, but I was not running any plug-ins beyond the base essentials. I had even tried it on two different PC's, both with the same result. I even disabled my IP Blocker, but no difference. And considering I placed orders through Newegg and other sites earlier in the day it leads me to believe that it's Ubisoft's fault on this. Their site just seems to be poorly scripted, as I even had trouble just getting logged in to my account with them. After reading a few comments from other forums and all, I learned that I apparently haven't been the only one over the past few days either that has been having problems with their site as well as ordering this from them.
I would get this game if it had micheal cera in it.
For the very same reason, I would not get the game.
WHYYYY!!! I have money on my PSN wallet, I don't want to spend another $10 instead of my fund but I don't want to spend $15 either. Blah, I guess I'll preorder.
Edit: Oh, I figured out how to do the pre-order. Excuse this post.
