Nah mate I never got an email? What's that all about?!
I was checking the order often and it never changed from created. I phoned in Friday to see what was going on and was told an email was sent in 31st October asking to pay remainder of the balance. Stupidly it’s an account I don’t monitor anymore so missed it. Because they never heard from me they cancelled the order. My own fault but I really wish they’d update the order page on the website as well as send email but they don’t. If you haven’t been billed full amount I’d give them a ring if I were you

Ah cheers for letting me know; fortunately I've paid it in full. Phoned them and said it'll be out on a courier tomorrow, but I can't see that being same day! Won't use them again. Just feel obliged for those tesco points and free Cafe Rouge dinners lol

Random question but I have the X coming tomorrow, with forza 7 which I already own digitaly, could I use the disk from the bundle to install and play as if it's digital instead of downloading it all again and then would it work without the disk?

Amazon was suppose to deliver tomorrow. I even received an email saying so from Amazon without me requesting any kind confirmation. I expected it anyway because that's what was promised at pre-order time.

Now the package is suppose to be delivered on Thursday. What's odd is that Amazon's system said I needed to revised my payment. I've been using the same card for the last 3 years. I "revised" my payment info by simply going to the payment section, not changing anything and just hitting apply.


It's not a big deal but it does suck to be promised something on a day and have these shenanigans happen. I'm in San Jose, CA right now. A place where I get most of my Amazon stuff delivered same day for free. So I feel for some of you having issues with Amazon.

Now then. Because of this delay I will most likely cancel my order. I'm unemployed and I should be (continuing) to penny pinching my savings instead of buying a 500 USD console anyway.

Microsoft charged my visa friday, and printed a label /tracking saturday. But it's been "waiting for UPS Pick-up" ever since. ** edit it does not say US in the tracking, so maybe it is coming from ontario. Still, can't see this showing up by tomorrow, given I'm on east coast of Canada and there isn't even a single destination scan yet =\

Just paid off at game UK. Deals were Forza 7 £20 And wolfenstein 2 for £30

Other deals but don't think cod ww2 for £50 is very good.

My order is in the exact same shipping limbo. I have a UPS MyChoice account which gives you a bit more information about your shipments. In my case it says its shipping from Ontario, California. So maybe they can overnight it to me since I'm in Alberta? Its free to sign up for, might be worth doing so if you have the time.

I am willing to bet that mine doesn't arrive until at least 5pm tomorrow. Still debating if I should sell my Day One Xbox One or keep it. Most I can get unless I go Craigslist is $75-90

So this will turn up tomorrow and I've just had a notification that my Sennheiser HD6XXs from MassDrop will turn up on Wednesday, it's almost like Christmas.

A very, very expensive Christmas.

Project Scorpio edition still available and NOT sold out yet just in case someone still wants to pick one up:

http://amzn.to/2AdKoQ0

Huge thanks.

Best Buy fucked me over by not being able to charge me for the one I got for my brother, so I bought him a regular one, but now I switched it.

I just checked mine on the website and it's been handed over to the carrier, but I still haven't had an email from them. Mine is shipping via DPD, apparently.

So, when I pick up and pay for my pre-order from game this week, I can get f7 for 20 quid??

Lovely.

Hopefully I didn't ask how long the offer was on for I just gave him the money and ran.

Edit

Just got mine. The dude said if you Pre ordered one when you pay you can get the deals.

Just need to find a Kinect adapter now. Looked around but they seem to be rarer than rocking horse shit!

Anyone know if anywhere in the uk with stock? EBay prices are nuts.

I got mine for free by contacting MS support and giving them my Kinect serial. Might be worth a go.

Ok boys, slot me into the "Amazon UK can eat a dick" pile...

I ordered my X no more than 20 seconds after they went live. The wife and I sat there, watched the presentation, then F5ed the shit out of the site until we could order, and snagged one. So that's a day one order, right at the start. Must have been EASILY in the first 100 to pre-order on the site.

We are also Prime customers.

So... I'm sat here, at twenty to bloody eleven the night before the damn thing is released, with it being "preparing to dispatch" for, oh, about 12 hours now?

To say I was worried would be a bit of an understatement... I think I've probably been the person taking up 97% of the sites hits all day...

Not really very good, when my friend ordered one last WEEK, with no Prime account, and his was dispatched already...

Grrr....

Did you try going through Amazon's chat? I got my delivery changed from Thursday to Tuesday with little effort.
