Hows the shipping on RE6? Do they offer release date delivery? Around release date?

Looking at the confirmation email, this is what it says:



tl;dr

You get a code that will discount 1600 points at the MS online store after the game is shipped. You get a code for $10 off your next MS online purchase after the game is shipped. Both codes expire 12/31/12.


Anyone try this in store? I have one pretty close to me. Seems like there shouldn't be any issues returning the game if all they give you is a coupon code. The fin print didn't say anything like Amazon's we'll only give you back $50 if you got a $10 gift card preorder bonus.

•ALL SALES ARE FINAL. In the case of a manufacturer defect, you must notify us within thirty (30) days from the date of purchase. In this case, the product will be exchanged for the same product or, if that product is no longer available, we will issue a refund.

So, no, you can't attempt to commit return fraud and keep the points and coupon from the Microsoft Store.

Question regarding the use of these codes: In the OP it says codes cannot be used for pre-orders, but does that only apply to listed titles? I have Halo 4 preordered at the MS Store already but if possible I'd consider preordering Borderlands 2 here, and then reordering Halo 4 with the $10 off code. Could this work?

According to the e-mail, you get a $10 MS coupon the day it is released. Afterwards, it can be used for anything on the MS Store.

I managed to pre-order Halo 4 from Newegg for $40. That still on?

I put a preorder in for one of the $10 off Newegg deals recently, but the MS store one interests me more because of its $25 off next purchase coupon. Essentially $25 off a 4000 MSP card.

So if this works out I could be looking at Borderlands 2 + 1600 MSP (read, Dawnguard), and $10 off Halo 4 for $60. That's a great deal

Hmm, might do this for Borderlands 2 and then use the code for Halo 4 and then hopefully they have something else I want for the code that comes with that game.

Shoot, didn't notice that - this is also what I'd like to do with this credit - shame you can't use it on pre-orders.

That's YOU assuming the game will drop at any store by $20.00 on Black Friday, BUT that's if it drops that much...while Microsoft IT'S A NOW type of deal, BY $30.00. oh by the way who spends now days so much money at bestbuy to reach SILVER PREMIER status having sites like AMAZON and NEWEGG around....certainly not me, I like to save my money.


I am pretty sure that the price matching doesn't work on black friday deals anyway. It would definitely be YMMV, because it says so in most store's policies.

He also misunderstood what I posted. Not once did I say if the price drops ON BF. I said that in within 1-2 months after RE6 comes out it will be NEAR BF/Christmas which is when the sales kick into high gear.

I know PM on BF is near impossible, unless you get someone who is really nice and wants to bend/break the rules to help someone.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Question for anyone who has done a preorder for Resident Evil 6 (or any game)- what does your invoice say for product release date? My RE6 order says "Product release date:Tue Nov 20 00:00:00 CST 2012". I seriously hope they're not making you wait for this until then, or its a lousy deal after all.

I cannot confirm it - but I would imagine somebody will tell Bob, who works in Microsoft shipping/receiving, of the new release date. Fear not, your copy will arrive next month.... unless they forget to tell Bob.

I'm sure they aren't going to sit on copies of the game until 11/20. Game has already been printed and is probably in a warehouse somewhere just waiting to be sent to stores.


MORE troubling however is Microsoft charging me for Resident Evil 6. Has anyone been charged already? I'm a little confused when it CLEARLY says that they will not charge you until your preorder ships and it's definitely not October 2nd.

*A credit card is required for pre-order, but your card will not be charged until your order is shipped (or the product is made available for download).
