dailygamesnews.com - As expected, the earlier price listing of Gran Turismo 5 at AmazonUK for a preorder price of £17.59 was wrongly priced and has now been adjusted. The correct preorder price for Gran Turismo 5 on PS3 is now listed at £37.96.
I Pre-Ordered it and they should honour it, It will be bad for their reputation if they do.
i ordered two copies but have never personally known them to honour a misprice
Well, I knew something like this was going to happen so I didnt bother pre-ordering..I'll probably just get the game, when they break the street date here :D
Well on my account page my pre-order is still at the old price so hopefully it will stay like that.
They would honour it if they weren't going to cancel the order. They did the same with Folklore and Lair at £9.99, and they'll most certainly do the same with this. It's more of a system error than anything, I imagine, so they'll use their right to cancel the orders made.
coz the price is still £17.59 on my recent orders page! i hope they leave it like that! PLEASE!!
They never honour a wrong price, it's in ther terms & conditions.
Nah they won't honour it, never do. They offer to cancel your order.
They'll offer to cancel the order
I've had amazon honour wrong prices, it depends how many people order at that price and if they can cover the losses.
They honour the prices on very rare occasions. Uusally they'll cancel and give you the option to re-order at the correct price. That said, I'm guessing they were supposed to change the price on Gran Turismo 5 Prologue and that's where the mistake occured.
My pre-order hasnt been canceled yet - STILL priced at 17.59
damn... hopefully they honour it, but just have to wait and see. Everytime my email goes ping... i'm not going to want to see anything from amazon!
I know the feeling, it's a b1tch
my preorder has not been cancelled yet. so far i'm getting it for £15.30 without vat. nice. let's pray to JesusBuddahAllah and hope for the best. :)
Ain't gonna happen, but let us know if you get it for that price
My order still stands too (bit more, because of VAT and shipping to Germany) at 25pounds... but as of now, I haven't received an email saying otherwise. Plus, well... their website says "price guarantee". I haven't had Amazon cancel any of my orders yet!
is it still going to be cheaper if I have a copy of Prologue?
The price guarantee is for when a price goes down during your preorder, they'll charge you the final price, rather than the original preorder price so you don't pay more than the selling price.
"Amazon.com's price for not-yet-released items sometimes changes between the time the item is listed for sale and the time it is released and shipped. Whenever you pre-order a book, CD, video, DVD, video game, or software item, the price we charge when we ship it to you will be the lowest price offered by Amazon.com between the time you place your order and the release date. The order summary in Your Account will reflect the lowest price within 24 hours of the price change. Please note that our Pre-Order Price Guarantee applies only to items sold by Amazon.com, and not to items (or prices) offered by other sellers on our site. If your order enters the shipping process before the release date and the price is lowered on the release date, we will automatically refund your credit card for the difference between the price you were charged and the release-date price. If you did not use a credit card to pay for your order, please contact customer service through the Contact Us box on the right side of any Help page."
So far 'NO' eMail off Amazon saying they have Messed-up??? It's their F-IN fault anyway!!! :-/ I'll take them to court if they send me a eMail saying 'we got it wrong'!!! ;-D All i need now is Amazon to F-UP the prices of Uncharted 2 + R&C:ACiT + MAG and i'll be HAPPY for xMas!!! ;-D
hee hee you'll take them to court eh?
they've done this a few times now
It's just employee human error typing the wrong digits
It was to kick start GT5 sales. It's still the best game seller even now at £37.96. Amazon could take any losses incurred by the £17 tag, I think we might get this one ;p
I just hope they don't change the price for those who've pre-ordered already. My order hasn't been cancelled yet, although I doubt it'll stay like that for long.
