From Amazon's "Discussion" page.
I'm sorry for the delay in shipping your order. I completely understand your disappointment. That's definitely not what we want our customers to experience.
I've checked your order and can confirm that this book The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia Limited Collector's Edition is currently back-ordered--I'm sorry about this delay--we certainly didn't expect this would happen. On rare occasions, our availability messaging listed online may not accurately reflect the most recent information from our vendors.
We normally obtain this item from a supplier who can usually send it to us within a certain time period (as listed on our website) from the time your order is placed; however, in this case, the supplier has taken longer than expected to respond to us.
We sent an e-mail notification as soon as we learned from our supplier that the status of this item had changed. Unfortunately, our reliance on suppliers and manufacturers for information about their stock means that, occasionally, our database will not reflect all changes.
To compensate for this delay,I've issued you a $10.00 promotional certificate, which you can use the next time you order an item shipped and sold by Amazon.com.
Note: the promotional certificate doesn't apply to items offered by other sellers on our website and won't cover the shipping costs of an order.
If you'd rather cancel your order, I realize this is not what you expected when you placed this order. If you prefer to cancel the order, go to the URL below and click the "Need to cancel an item?" button:
As per our standard policy, we do not charge you for items until they enter the shipping process, so you will not be charged for this item until it is available and we have shipped it to you.
I'm very sorry about all of this. I hope you'll consider this an isolated incident and give us another chance in the future. We're working hard to provide a stress-free and convenient shopping experience at Amazon.com.
We value your business and hope to see you again soon at Amazon.com.
Thank you for your inquiry. Did I solve your problem?

If true, Amazon must have gotten quite a bit less product than anyone thought. Only a handful of people from CAG have gotten shipped/preparing to ship notifications. Just proves that Amazon is pretty bad route to go in a lot of cases, though I guess its not worse than B&N, except with B&N you knew to keep looking to order from someone else since it was canceled early enough.
