Number 1 best reason not to shop there imo.

they've been great until recently when they started using AMZN delivery half the time. I want UPS. They are trackable and accountable. I don't want some dude in a car with my stuff.

Now this:

"Hello,

Thank you for contacting Amazon Logistics.

It appears that your package has been delayed by the carrier due to a shipping delay from our fulfillment center. Your package is out for delivery today. Your package should be delivered by 10pm tonight"

Mine came in the I'll set it up in the morning. Ended up having to work my shift 6 hours off now and over night. These reports of failures are a little concerning. My entertainment center has a mostly open back so hope it is enough to vent the heat.

Me too. Ordered 8/20 from Target. Due from Fedex SmartPost on Monday 11/13. I called to complain and the manager on the phone could only offer me a $5 gift card when I asked for it. She said I should have picked "ship to store".

So UPS emailed me at half seven last night to say they werenít coming.

They really are the shittiest courier service in the world.

I canít even put a complaint in or use online chat as it is an international shipment.

Never heard so much bollocks in my life.

After waiting in all day cos they said delivery would be 7th November.

Agreed.. it's likely my bad with sloppy parenting, but we've had the same UPS delivery lady for many years. I would let the kids answer the door and accept packages from her.

A couple weeks back a package I was waiting for showed up and one of the kids opened the door to a really scary looking individual (from their perspective) and it was a bad experience. Nope. Now it's just some random car in my driveway, or a white van parked out front. I'm absolutely pushing everything possible to Best Buy and others.

My tesco direct order coming today - Iím pretty sure the order wouldíve been stuck without me calling them. I had ordered forza with it which got dispatched first and I wouldnít be surprised if the other part of the order was stuck.

Same here, although they didn't email me. I had to call them to find out. The guy said it would be delivered by 12pm today, but we'll see. It's currently showing as 'in transit' instead of 'out for delivery' so not sure what that means.

Edit: Just had a call from them. The driver should be here around 10:30. Fingers crossed!
Edit2: And they delivered, at the time they promised this time.

Kind of as a personal experiment and mostly as a favor to friends, I ended up ordering (4) Scorpio editions from (4) different stores. Here's how it has gone so far:

1) Amazon:
After bitching and moaning on customer service, Amazon came thru and it arrived late last night. If I hadn't gone on to customer chat Id still be waiting until the 9th. Inexcusable how badly Amazon fucked up this launch, but in my case individualized Customer service was pretty good when I went on and nicely threatened to return the order if I received it later than the 7th. Shouldn't have to so this but at least it got here sort of "on time".

2) Best Buy: Won't arrive until the 9th. Surprised as BB is usually top notch and bc of GCU my first and usually only choice for game purchases. Not great performance here.

3) Gamestop: Arrived early afternoon on the 7th. Didn't have to contact anyone. It just arrived. For all the justifiable shit that Gamestop gets on GAF for horrible corporate policies, they won this little contest hands down.

4) Target: Ordered way back when they were first available. Received an email won't be receiving the Scorpio until the 11th. Lol Unacceptably slow shipping. Never again.

Soooo...Gamestop surprisingly wins this going away. Amazon edges Best Buy for second place just barely bc Amazon has somewhat responsive Customer service that may be able to correct slow fulfillment/shipping issues if you complain nicely. Best Buy "customer service" is powerless by comparison. You get it when u get it. Target is totally out of the loop and has comparably clueless/nonexistent customer service.

So, that's been my experience thus far. Will update if anything changes.

UPS delivered my Gamestop order at 11:25 in the morning! I never get anything from UPS so early. Definitely tipping my hat to Gamestop on this one.

It'll then install on your console. It's how I did it.

Pre-ordered mine at local GameStop. They stayed open till 1130pm central time so people could get them Monday night. Got an email saying mine arrived Monday. Picked it up after work at 11pm. Great job by GameStop. They sold all the systems they got but had 1 Scorpio edition left. Salesman took a call and told the person they had 20 mins to come get it or 10am next morning.

Ok I've caved in and bought one on pre-order but should get by the end of November. Screenshots and comments on here swayed me.
Now just to save to upgrade my midrange HDR 4K to an OLED one.
