Wow what a bummer. Nov. 15th is so close. Can't wait to get my baby delivered =)

Awww congrats twins??:P

This is supported by the numerous video games currently being delayed on the ps4.

Umm it's only DC that's been delayed by Sony.

Wow I hope this is not true. or else so many disappointments awaits.

If indeed this rumor does result in being factual, it could essentially be viewed as a huge disappointment to those numerous fans who have previously placed their faith and loyalty in sony as a company to deliver upon the promised bundle they had diligently pre-ordered. In my opinion it would obviously appear that for some unknown reason, there does indeed appear to be some sort of issue with the actual development process for the ps4. This is further supported by the numerous video games currently being delayed on the ps4 as we speak. Clearly I can understand that there are always deadlines to be met in terms of actual release dates for profit, but when sony continually places their customers on unstable grounds in terms of reliability right from the start, it can create an obvious feeling of foreboding in my opinion.

Are you really going to call out Sony for reliability issues. How many Xbox 360 phats did you go through? Come on be honest ;)

They have also offered a different game for PS+ users which is a good gesture considering the game is not ready. Prepare yourself for day 1,2,3,4... patchtes to compensate the rushed xbone games.

dcj05242480d ago

Um 360. Three games has been delayed for XBOX ONE and PS4. That is The Crew, Watch Dogs, Driveclub and Kinect Sports. So I think we can say its the actual delays.

Kingthrash3602480d ago please dc was a half free title anyway. watchdogs is a mulitiplat and it did hurt. dc hurts but not as much as you make it seem.
i wansnt gettin dc but i was gettin wd. if they delay kz then we can talk....

xHeavYx2480d ago

I think the only thing hurting is the troll up there.
I hope it's a rumor,I dint think there would be many preorders for Driveclub because it was a free game

meatysausage2480d ago


Im pretty sure sony will still be giving them consoles, just with out the games obviously.

Abriael2480d ago

@360degrees: you sure have a touch for melodrama.

And an agenda :D

FamilyGuy2480d ago (Edited 2480d ago )

Why on earth would Target "cancel" preorders instead of just changing them to versions without the game? This rumor sounds idiotic.

On the topic of delays and trolls:

Some devs believe in quality and have a reputation to uphold while others will simply release sub-par, rushed out the door product (knowing their fans will buy it anyway) by cutting content like Forza with its day 1 patch required to get the complete version of the game or Ryse that downgraded its 1080p, 150k character model claims so it could run at a stable 30fps rather than delaying the game so they could further optimize the game/engine and achieve those claims as well as being stable.

delay/quality > downgraded/rushed

To each his own though.

Abriael2480d ago

@FamilyGuy: unfortunately target isn't new to very much nonsensical preorder cancellations, so if this is true, it wouldn't surprise me one bit.

Life is good. :)

I'm very much looking forward to watching some Netflix in the living room, while waiting for that knock on my door.

OT: I'm glad that Driveclub will still me a part of playstation plus when it releases. I'm not a big racer, but I'm still looking forward to giving it a try.

Who knows? I used to hate watching baseball, and I adore the sport now.

Could be great!

360Drgree how many games you know of got canceled on ps4 please enlighten us other than driveclub we can smellllll the trolling in you're comment

Thatguy-3102480d ago


Dont think it's up to Sony. If customers do lose their pre-order that's all on Target since they're the once selling it already. Don't see why they couldn't do what gamestop and amazon did. They are making people pre order at a first come first serve basis.

feraldrgn2480d ago


Sounds more like Target being stupid, they could easily just offer the console on its own or with a different game as a replacement.

It's only Target doing this AFAWK, places like Amazon are offering other deals like they should do.

& sorry but no, stop trying to spread FUD, there aren't "development issues".

Only chumps shop at for me

MCTJim2480d ago (Edited 2480d ago )

There has to be more to it...Since they were never official bundles as we read before, why not just offer the console alone?...seems kinda weird that they cancelled the whole order.

Yeah I see the "receipt" but come one how come everyone else is just offering the console without the game?

Kingthrash3602480d ago (Edited 2480d ago )

target has a wierd system... i work there and we dont do pre orders but maybe at that store they do. i think there is a 3rd party in the mix and target ordered bundles from them. now because orderd bundle is void it voided all preordered receipts and now no one is in the system to identify the buyer/customer. you can bring your receipt yeah but the sku wont match and the system will now honor it any longer....this is why my store dont do pre orders on anything.

just tell them give you a different game with the console, that's not so hard, or take the ps4 with no game out the box you have planet side blacklight retribution and so much free games to play until you buy new game

xXxSeTTriPxXx2480d ago

They can just refund the cost of the game and sale them the ps4.

Simple really.

Rageanitus2480d ago

Not that simple. The bundle could be a totally different SKU.

I could be wrong, but usually when it comes to bundles the game is already in the box with some fixed box art.
