My Pre-Order Experience... It isn't good

31 replies 858 views Edited Nov 5, 2012

Hey, well today I decided to go into my local GAME (UK) shop and ask to pre-order Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale. I went to the main desk and said...

 

"Hi, I would like to pre-order Playstation All-Stars Battle Royal"

 

He replied "hmm... ive never heard of that game, let me go check"

 

he brings out the book of all the pre-orders and then tells me

 

"looks like we don't have that game here. Ive never heard of it. What type of game is it?"

 

I said "are you sure? Its a fighting game and your website even has exclusive pre-order costumes"

 

he said "sorry mate, we don't have it here"

 

I said "alright then, cheers" 

 

then walked out the door

 

im just gonna order it online. I don't have a visa card so looks like I gotta ask my mum hahaha. 

 

My fellow UK gamers, have you went to the GAME store to pre order this and did you get to do it? Im kinda confused by it all. He definitely was not trolling because i saw the book. It wasnt there for pre-order.

Sounds to me that this establishment needs to stay better updated with upcoming releases

My preorder experience at gamestop went like this:
Me: I would like to preorder Playstation Allstars Battle Royale
Gamestop Manager: Bit ch please!
Me: ...Excuse me?
Manager: I knew you would try to preorder this game the day it was announced so I did it for you Smiley Happy
Me: Oh ok thanks Smiley Happy
Manager: Yeah this game is going to be a huge success!
For anyone wondering yes this did happen and I know the manager in real life, although this is a shortened version of what happened.

im glad to see some people had no problem XD... I have a decision Pre-order on Amazon to get the steel book or pre order on the shop that failed. I want the costumes more than the Steel Book so looks like im going with the store that failed me.

My pre-order experience:

 

Me - I want to pre order Playstation All-Stars

GS employee - PS3 or Vita

Me- PS3

GS - *types for a few seconds*, it comes out on Nov 20. How much do you want to put down

Me - Just the $5 minimum (I was broke when I initially pre-ordered)

GS - Here's your reciept.

Me - Walks out of GS with PSASBR pre-order reciept

 

I had no problems, and have since payed off my pre order. It sucks for anyone having trouble

 know, that's why im trying to get anyone from UK to tell me their stories. Only GAME has the pre order costumes which is unfortunate because its what i want... Deimos and Kessler, i want that Smiley Sad

im definitely gonna have to pre order online though because i want those costumes.

ok i'm new in the pre-order world so i got a question... when i do it online, on amazon for example, do they take the money right away or after the game releases?

I am from the UK but I've never had much success pre-ordering a title from a GAME store, similar problems like the one you encountered when I wanted to pre-order Pokemon Diamond, believe it or not! A week later they had posters all over the place encouraging pre-orders and I was too late to get my free stylus pen. 

 

I have pre-ordered it from the GAME website for the costumes/ Nathan Drake cover. It should be fine though I will miss turning up at the store on the day with a big smile on my face. Smiley Very Happy
