Best Buy oversells Forza 4 special edition, screws gamers

The Forza Motorsport 4: Limited Collector's Edition is chock-full of extra cars you'll love driving in Forza 4... assuming you didn't order the game from Best Buy. It turns out the big box electronics retailer sold many more of the special edition than they actually had. Now they're going on a pre-order killing spree. Did you get screwed? (Forza Motorsport 4, Xbox 360)

Trusting BestBuy to get your order right is like trusting a politician to keep a promise. It ain't gonna happen.

I pre order at amazon

And they've sold out. So has Gamestop.

It's actually better than trusting Walmart or a myriad other retailers. I have always trusted amazon.com to get it right though.

That said, I was just talking earlier how Forza 4 pre-orders seems kind of low relative to the previous game, yet the LE is sold out! 0_O

Maybe it is doing better than I thought....

I wouldn't paint BestBuy that bad but they did screw up. I trust BestBuy with my preorder more than I'll ever trust GameStop. Still haven't forgive them for that screwing me with my Valkyria Chronicles preorder.

In terms of gaming deals, Best Buy offer better deals way more than gamestop or walmart.

They screwed up Dark Souls preorders, now they oversell Forza 4. Wow. Won't be preordering there anymore.

I feel bad for the people who pre-ordered from best buy and got their order cancelled. That really sucks for them, I'm lucky I pre-ordered at Gamestop early.

I work in gaming at my local Best Buy. I want everyone to know that the company is doing everything it can to accommodate all the increases in preorders. This being the first year that the company has opened up their preorder plans and incentives. Changes are coming with DLC delivery starting with Forza 4. If you preordered you will get your code printed directly on your receipt instead of email. I know how frustrating it is, I for one lost out on Dark Souls CE, although we are doing everything we can to make it right and perfect the new system and demand.

No actually if they were doing everything that they could, they would give the free items, to those who got screwed, with out them having to buy the basic edition from them.
