We're contacting you about order #xxxxxxx for the following item(s):

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Master Edition - Nintendo Switch

We're unable to fulfill your order for the item(s) listed above because they aren't available from the supplier any longer. As a result, we've cancelled them from your order and your original payment method won't be charged.

We're sorry for any inconvenience or disappointment this may have caused. To help make up for the inconvenience, we've applied a $10 Amazon.com Gift Card to your account. This amount will be applied to your next eligible order automatically without entering a claim code.
So soon to release too. I'm furious. I ordered the same night as the original Switch reveal, right when they went up. They gave a $10 credit for the inconvenience.



Update:

As of early morning on 2/23, Amazon sent out an email saying duplicate orders of this item have been cancelled as well.

Update 2:

It might be finally over guys!

"This was a limited-edition product for which we had an allocation of 2,900 units. We reduced all initial orders(that were larger than 1) to a quantity limit of one and reached out the vendor for additional stock, however none is available. As a result, we have pulled the customers in order of order-placement and have to cancel the 1,235 oversell."

From a thread on another site that I don't know if we are allowed to mention? (you can probably guess the other place where people have been talking about this issue)

Amazon just cancelled my Breath of the Wild Master Edition preorder. I preordered within a few minutes of it going live on Amazon, around the time the first batch of Nintendo Switches went live.

I really wanted the carrying case. Would have been nice to get a heads up y'know, earlier than two weeks before launch.

you can't even order the Special Edition

Bloody hell, Amazon. That makes it even worse, especially since I ordered it as soon as it appeared.

Wouldn't be as bad if the normal version wasn't already sold out. On the bright side, the sword is a miserable pile of trash for the extra $30.

Well that fucking sucks.

Happened to me with the Uncharted 3 limited treasure edition, it did get me a free copy of Uncharted 2 and 3 and i just ordered the US version instead. 10$ seems cheap Amazon can do better.

Are they cancelling all of them?

Mine is still safe.

Edit: And since the regular version is sold out, how exactly can I utilize my Amazon Prime discount by launch? I'm scared now. Not really. But I'm anxious.

Contact their customer service and demand more. That's pretty bullshit since you could have gotten it somewhere else.

I bet you can at least get a free month of Prime.

This happened with fire emblem limited edition on Amazon.

Then they made it available for 5 minutes before it was sold out.

So keep hitting refresh page.


LOL at all those Amazon preorders that were sold on eBay.

Sorry GAF :(

That's awful. Mine is with GameStop. I usually hate them (after all I paid full price plus shipping) but hopefully I at least get to keep my order.

You blame Amazon but what if

Nintendo: You can have 25,000 copies.
Amazon: Takes 25,000 preorders.
Nintendo: JK, you can have 5k.

Isn't that more likely?

I really do not understand why Nintendo can't make enough of their limited releases to satisfy more than five minutes of demand. There's clearly a larger market that wants these things, and is willing to pay for them, but NoA is just content with the small allotment of units they sell, and let their fans get screwed by scalpers.

What time did everybody who had theirs cancelled order? I'm kinda scared lol. I ordered at 1:24CST.
There's no time to this, there are people who pre-ordered it before other people in the Master thread and still got theirs cancelled. It's a matter of luck right now and if you are chosen by the Hylean gods or not.

I'm in disbelief right now.

Mine is cancelled and I ordered with 1 click right when it opened. I'm beyond pissed.

I had the chance to get it from other sources afterwards but I only want 1 and didn't want to hold the chance for others to get it. That means I need to secure every possible preorder from now on but I no longer want to take my business to Amazon. $10 GC is not nearly enough compensation for a game that means the most to me than any other game ever.

That's a pretty fucked up way to handle things.

Here's hoping my Special Edition from Best Buy sticks.

Yeesh, that sucks. I hope this is just for Amazon, it's going to be fucking rough out there if orders from other retailers start getting cancelled.
Gotta imagine Nintendo would feel the heat pretty hard, if that was the case.

Sorry to those of you this is happening to. Truly awful.

At least the scalpers this happens to will be squealing in pain.

I wonder if the emails/cancellations are still coming, or if it's all over for now.

This is going to have me up late watching my email inbox. Nauseating.
I'm on the verge of sending a super gross fanboy chat message to amazon but I'm afraid it's going to just get someone's attention to cancel mine, too.

If mine is cancelled, Amazon and Nintendo are both going to be hearing from me. Not that it'll do any good.
