Tesco is now informing all those who took advantage of the seemingly fantastic deal of Saints Row 2 PS3 for £15.97 that the order is cancelled.
well thats Tesco. "every little helps" RIGGGGHHHHTTTT....
Tesco didn't just take pre-orders, they took our money which makes (i think) a legal sale. Therefore they should honour the deal. Everyone affected should complain to BBC watchdog - it wont be the first time they have covered a videogame story... http://www.bbc.co.uk/watchd...
Amazon did the same last year with Lair and Folklore. I think online stores get a kick out of letting PS3 owners down.
Yeah i remember that with amazon, i fully expected the same thing to happen with tesco.
I remember the Amazon fiasco.
Why am i not surprised ? Total rip off, they've even got the cheek to say "Don't worry, we won't charge you" They already did, paid by switch and they got their money straight away, wonder how much they swelled their coffers by overnight ? Total rip off and very unethical, although as i said hardly a shock.
I had 2 copies on order, just checked and yes, ive got the cancellation email. Not a happy bunny. Im calling them tomorrow, its their mistake, they should honour it. Well, theres no way im buying SR2 now. At 16 quid it was worth a blast but at full price, not a chance. My hard earned is required elsewhere in the next few weeks, namely pro evo, dead space, far cry 2, ms2, fallout 3, LBP etc... Oh well, pro evo gets my undivided this week then, no bad thing
would it not be like a shop where if somethings said to be a certain price they have to sell it you for that price
i thought that would be the case, but what can you do?
I Shall be ringing them tomorow, this is not on. They canceled my order by stating that they were unable to get stock, YET they still seem to be selling it.
Just an excuse to say, ok we fvcked up, sorry for offering a bargain game when we were actually screwing with you. I know hate Tesco.
The motherf*ckas just e-mailed me now and told me that they were unable to obtain my order. I'm gonna call them tomorrow and tell them that statutory consumer rights state that a company MUST/HAVE TO sell a product for the price that has been publicly displayed for it. Just because they f*cked up it means I should miss out? Nah this aint the end of this.
^ Let me know how it goes, they should sell it to us, they screwed up why should we pay for their mistake?
Yeah, me too. It'd be great if they actually honour it!!
in agreement with the statement you just made.
am I :)
The scum they are. Especially if they have take you money, like mine. Contract complete. Offer and acceptance. If they don'e have it in stcok (which they damn well do), I wait just like any other online reatiler would do. At least amazon had the balls to tell me last yeat they were a fisting me.
It's bang out of order.
i love the fact all you guys agree, but no one actually clicked on the agree button!
I just called Tesco, they have had a few calls by the sound of it. However, they would not relent and stated that they were fully within their rights to cancel orders and blamed it on a TYPING ERROR......no s##t !!! Be interesting to see if anyone actually gets it for £15.97, if they do im calling straight back.
By the way, they had the cheek to say " I CAN COMPLETE YOUR ORDER BUT IT WILL BE AT THE £39.97 PRICEPOINT NOW ON THE WEBSITE " so the bull about not being able to obtain the item is false
this is what they sent. "We are sorry to inform you that we have not been able to obtain an item in your order. Don't worry, we won't charge you for this item, but this may affect some of the promotions in your order.Your new order summary is shown at the foot of this email. The item that we were unable to obtain is: 3 x Saints Row 2Cancelled on Tuesday 14 October 2008 We apologise that we have been unable to fulfil every item in your order on this occasion, but hope that you will return to shop with Tesco.com Entertainmentin the future. they have said they were unable to obtain the item. im sure they have sent this to every1. its obv bull cus they selling it at £40. some 1 complain as its miss-guiding information. see what you can get out of them. customer is always right remember :P (i would do it myself but im at work)
yeah i got the email yesterday. gutted. sum 1 pressure them act upset and see if they atleast give out vouchers (they tend to do that to keep customers). if so im jumping on the phone to them :P
what a joke they say they didnt have it in stock when brought for £15.97 but i knew they would not honour this so i ordered it when it went up to the correct price. That item is being packed as we speak so its bull what there saying lack of stock. Just cause they hire a monkey to type grr. well i have no intrest in this game but i'm mad real mad everyone whos been messed about by tescos lets all tonight pop down fill our trollys with expensive frozen food leave it in a warm aisle and walk out. Lets hit them back where it hurts. Just cause there a major company, they think they can mess with the little men and women of this nation. Lets all stand as one and stand for our rights. TESCO's = CRAPCO's
Didn't that guy who got the xbox's for £13 get the xbox's in the end. Has anyone checked Tesco's T&C's? Does it mention anything of that sort, either way i'll be taking it further, possibly even to the national newspapers, they'll soon buck their ideas then! Plus it will raise the profile of the game for THQ
Taken from the Tesco terms and conditions.......... "If, by mistake, we have under priced an item, we will not be liable to supply that item to you at the stated price, provided that we notify you before we despatch the item to you. In those circumstances, we will notify the correct price to you so you can decide whether or not you wish to order the item at that price. If you decide not to order the item, we will give you a full refund on any amount already paid for that item in accordance with our refund policy in section 7 below." Last time i ever shop at tesco, scumbags.
T&C's on websites cannot over rule statutory rights. I'll look into and get back to you all. As i am not sure how it works with online selling as it comes under "The Distance Selling Regulations" not the standard satutory rights when you buy something in person.
Im raising hell thats for sure
I got the cancellation email, and after replying they sent me this:
Dear Mr ..... Thank you for your recent order for the Saints 2 Row PS3 game from Tesco.com. Unfortunately, there was an error in the price at the time that you placed your order, and as a result we have had to cancel your order. Please refer to our Terms and Conditions on the Tesco.com entertainment site for further details of our acceptance policy. If you would like to re-order the product, it is available on our website for £39.97. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused. Kind regards Tesco Customer Service
Isn't this a case of bait and switch?
TESCO: "Hello, sorry Saints Row 2-Ps3 for £15.97 is unavaiable, however you can alternatively purchase Saints Row 2-Ps3 for £39.99" ME: "Errrr.. no thanks!!!"
HA LBP IS COMING OUT OF COURSE THEY ARE ALONG WITH MOTORSTORM 2 AND RESISTANCE 2 BEST GAMES OF 08
those of you being pathetic enough to get angered over this matter are ridiculous. a brand new game would never be £16 so it was obviously a mistake and it was never going to be honoured. i realised this hence why i didn't purchase the game. if you honestly though that you could get away with buying this game for £16 just because of a typo you're either a retard or seriously naive and ought to rethink your take on business. the game has gotten decent reviews and is worth the full price, but if you are naive and see this as some kind of GTA rip off, which a majority of reviews have claimed it not to be, then fine don't buy it. just don't go throwing a stupid hissy fit just because you were dumb enough to presume that a brand new game with a RRP of £49.99 would be sold for £16. Of course Tesco were going to cancel, they don't want to lose money and I saw this coming from the beginning. Quit your irrelevant whining.
I was disappointed we didn't get away with it but it was worth a try. Last year Game was selling virtua fighter 4 in a buy one get one free deal, so you could buy 2 copies of VF4 for £30 in total. CEX was buying VF4 for £26 cash each so you could make £22 profit. Me and a friend did this a couple if times in store, but another friend bought 8 copies and sent them to cex in the post and they accidently paid him twice! So he initially spent £120 but got back £416. They never realised! So to the guy above, it is always worth a try.
ah i see an xbox 360 fan!!
lol at the losers that actually thought they were going to get this for the mis-entered cost. Especially the people that tried to order 3-4 copies.
its worth the try. not realy wasting much time. i aint realy fussed about it. was going to ebay them all anyway.lol
i am absolutely disgusted at the cancellation of orders whatever happened to the customer is always right??? they are still even holding money from myself and money others fine don't process the order but don't hold money!!!
Because thats how much this game is worth (15 pounds). When I see gameplay trailers it remind me of San Andreas and Vice City. The gameplay and graphics from GTA IV rule over Saints Row 2. I actually thought that Saints Row 2 will look better, i guess I was wrong. I will definetely not be buying this game for more than 20 pounds.
really do crack me up sometimes :)
