EB Games is cancelling some Spider-Man Collector's Edition preorders

EB Games has informed some customers that they have had to cancel some Spider-Man Collector’s Editions due to overselling their allocation and not being able to secure any additional units. As Press-Start wrote on the day it went on sale, both EB Games and JB Hi-Fi took their preorders down quite quickly, with Australia getting limited allocations and the CE being incredibly popular.

Come on Sony and Insomniac - show us Aussies some love. It sold out way too quick, none of my mate got one and we all wanted one. We hadn't anticipated it'd sell out in 3hrs.

i was at work and missed it completely so didnt even get a sniff of a pre order for it on any site.
hopefully they lift production and more can get it. i think ebgames should have kept the pre orders but sent to the people an email that will miss out that the pre order will stay in case they get more but come release day or after the email they can change the version and or cancel it completely. just so the poor peeps if they get more dont lose their spot type thing and miss out on it again.

I woke about 6 the morning after the announcement, EB hadn't updated their site. I thought 'No worries I'll do it on my lunch break', no luck. Devastated.

I remember a tweet from Insomniac saying it was limited. I'm not holding out hope for another allocation.

At least your not in NZ, we get whatever you guys don't allocate it feels like. Some editions we don't even get a chance to order as the AU/NZ suppliers sell out stock there before we even get a chance to order here. Case in point I haven't seen this edition at all anywhere over here. Even the day the announcement was made and everyone was putting it up on their sites for order.

That's shit bro, even in Aus it feels like we an afterthought. I'm hopeful for a PS4PRO limited console, I think this going one of the games of the generation. Insomniac are crazy good devs.

Just be aware closer to release they will most likely have more units allocated.

I’m in America and I got mine from GameStop hopefully this doesn’t happen here. I got lucky and walked in just 27 Mins after they went up for preorder. I actually got the first one of the eight they had.

I don't see that happening in the U.S anytime soon. Their definitely prepared to meet the demand so it sucks for the Aussies that will face disappointment.

Here in Canada, the Collector's Edition is sold out at EBGames as well but I pre-ordered the minute they added it.

One example I'll use is the God of War - Stone Mason Edition. It's still available at these U.S sites(GameStop, BestBuy, Amazon & Newegg) but in Canada, it sold out within the hour after being put online.

Not too concerning as EB Games has been gone for about 10 years. You can still pick up your preorder at Circuit City though.
