I see a lot of CAGs speak good things about Binary Domain, but after a couple video reviews, I can't bring myself to spend $25 on it. Maybe a $15 buy, or a $20 DOTD at BBY so I can use sme certificates, but that's about it.

Glad I ordered Syndicate when I did though!

I rented and beat it awhile ago and probably won't pick it up again at any cost. Not much replay value.

I feel ya on this. I ordered from them at 1am CST, still no shipping confirmation. Crazy how I see people getting games within 24 hours & we cant even get a damn confirmation. Looked online & still showing "in process" for me. :cry:

Had an interesting chat with a Microsoft Store representative today.

"You are now chatting with 'Kera'.
You: Bosamba
You: Hi there Kera, what time and date does the current sale end?
Kera: Good Morning! Thank you for contacting the Microsoft Chat Team, how may I help you today?
You: Did you receive my first question?
Kera:I'm sorry, what sale are you referring to?
You: There is a sale on a number of Xbox 360 games that started on Monday morning.
You: I'm just curious as to when the sale ends
Kera: Let me look into that for you. One moment.
Kera:the sale last while supplies last.
You: Great, thank you.
Kera: You're welcome, and what games are you interested in?
You: Syndicate which is Out of Stock on your website.
Kera: What Xbox do you use?
You: I guess you don't anticipate stock getting replenished. Xbox 360
Kera: I'm not sure when we will be getting more, I'm sorry.
You: That's okay. Thanks for your help and have a nice day.
Kera: You're welcome! Can I help you with anything else today?
You: That will be all. Thank you
Kera: Thank you for contacting the Microsoft Chat Team! I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!
Thank you for chatting with us. Please click the "Close" button on the top right of the chat window to tell us how we did today."

That line about the sale ending while supplies last is not true since older sales have ended with them still having stock on the discounted games. Based on the availability of Halo: CEA from their website that sold out when it was $19.99, I'd say that if you missed out on any games, you're probably SOL :cry:.

At this point I'm just hoping that FFXIII-2 stays in stock, as well as maybe getting Grand Slam Tennis, though if that goes, not the end of the world, who knows when I'd finally get a chance to start it.

How do you get them to when it is OOS? I would take a trip if I could do it. (Ohio).

I don't think it'll work with a OOS item though. Sorry should have stated that.

Ordered NeverDead and Syndicate from Microsoft, receive a single shipping tracking number and 0.7 pound weight. Suspicions rising.

Receive order today. Syndicate is in the bubble mailer, but no sign of NeverDead.

Call Microsoft.

They ask me to check the package three times for a NeverDead voucher. There is none.

They agree to send another copy out. Now, they are out of stock. I say, "Well, I'll take one of the digital vouchers" before hearing:

"According to our records, this game isn't available via voucher"

In Canada, it's now PM policy as stated on bestbuy.ca.

Here in the US, it's not official policy, though managers always have some latitude on price adjustments to close deals. Some CAGs have it done, other's don't.

In other news, I ordered a copy of Asura's Wrath this morning, since it was the cheapest price I've seen it and it's disappearing out of retail stores due to an apparent low print run. Already have my shipping notification with tracking number.

I haven't read US policy or anything but I've seen Amazon.com as a retailer in the list of retailers to PM in the POS. Pretty interesting, and I've never heard of it being done otherwise in my experience, but like you said, some have done it.

In other news, I pricematched Syndicate at Fry's, so I am a happy camper. :D

Hmmm. I also got a 0.7 pound weight but I got both games in the same bubble mailer today. Remarkably fast shipping.

Yea worked for me, needed a manager's approval though

If they give you trouble you could always try the "physical store is too far so I would prefer to buy from you" line. That's what I ended up doing since I live at the far end of NYC and the closest MS store is in New Jersey.

And about the OOS try to see if you have a cached version of the page? Or if someone who printed it out could scan for you? I would have scanned mine for you but threw it away after my purchase.

Been two days & still no shipping confirmation, now seeing Neverdead not getting shipped for some people. Just waiting for MS to send me an e-mail saying my order has been cancelled. I just dont see it staying "In Process" this long.

I'm also still waiting for shipping confirmation.I chatted with them and asked them why I haven't received a shipping confirmation and all they sent me was my order confirmation again and told me to wait an extra week.This has been the worst experience ever from shopping online.
