I went to the Best Buy in Towson, MD yesterday when I saw they had copies in stock while checking online. They only had 3 (so I was told) and I had the last one. There was a lady who looked VERY razzled about getting her copy. I pre-ordered\paid for mine last week and received a email my game was ready last Friday but wasn't in stock. After a call to CS, we both agreed it was a error and I was ok waiting. I'm glad I checked on it yesterday myself, because the system wouldn't have alerted the store to contact me and I would have been SOL. I'm not about pointing blame or anything, however this was just bad on Nintendo's end. I'm glad I was pro-active and didn't wait around.
Ok then, knuckle up.

Just picked mine up finally.
The guy tried giving me a dumb excuse as to why I wasn't getting the artbook with my game today he told me I pre-ordered before the cutoff date and that he ordered extra copies so I had to come back next week. Before I paid it off he was like screw it and he gave me one. I was like happy that I actually got one the guy is pretty cool I was always talk to him when I pick up games.
Yea I think I also got the last copy from the batch of pre-orders he said the only got 4 copies out of the 13 and other people have to wait a couple more days to get a copy.

Apparently Best Buy got some in stock and I ordered off BB.com, try checking there. Still waiting on shipping confirmation but they said they are preparing my copy to ship. Amazon has great deals on games but clueless reps sometimes, lol.

This is standard GS BS for "your not getting it, but i dont want to deal with you so come back when someone else is working". Believe me, if you didnt get your book then and there, you wouldnt get one next week. Employees/managers dont have the power to order extra preorder stuff, half the time they dont even know its coming. You got one because you are a regular customer and the guy knows you, only way to get anything done at GS.

I also got a BS amazon "we try to sell you convenience" email. I told them 1 day shipping does nothing to help me here, yet they are now asking if my case is solved..I know its not their fault, but they arent helping their case either.

That is because the games are coming in waves. There wasn't enough to fill all the pre-orders at my store when I was working tonight. Luckily, I left my pre-order up (got it at Target) so an extra would be allocated to someone who didn't get one.

Me too. Unfortunately, it looks like they are shipping the art book separately which means it will likely be sent in a padded pouch and arrive damaged.

How can you tell it's shipping separately? I just got my email too.

Edit: NM just checked my email. It says the art book also shipped with the bundle

I ordered the bundle from Gamestop.com and they finally started the shipping process today which is annoying since I paid extra for faster shipping thinking it would be here already.

Picked up my copy at Gamestop today, they were surprised that I had a preorder, apparently they had only 1 copy left and another preorder to fill. Since I was there the manager said it was mine and the other guy would need to wait, got my art book too. Feel kinda bad for the other guy but I'm sure if it was the other way around they'd give it to him if he arrived first.

Nothing to see here, move along!

Order still in can't be canceled phase so I am pretty sure I got a copy. I will feel relief once I see your order has shipped.

Yea when he told me that I knew for sure I wasn't getting one. They told me the same thing about the ZoE pre-order poster.

The guy does recognize me he's really cool but don't get why he told me to come next week. I don't think he wanted one himself since they were enough from what I saw to give out to all the pre-orders.

I never received a call either from GameStop about my pre-order. I just called when they opened this morning, found out they got their shipment, and fired right over. The guy totally forgot about the artbook, and thanked me when I reminded him about it, lol. I love my GameStop. :)

Well its good to hear that some people got shipping notifications for their bundles. Hopefully we'll get ours tomorow or Friday. Thats what i was told today when i double checked on it

No luck today for me with my pre-order. I don't even care about the pre-order artbook anymore... I just want my game. And this just recently came in the mail yesterday.

Spoiler


Is that the JP artbook? Tried googling it and it looks like its quite expensive. Outa curiosity where'd you snag it from?


There are still some decent GameStop employees out there. When the store's first shipment arrived yesterday thy made sure to set a copy and artbook aside for me. Although I admit if it was any other GameStop especially the one in the mall across the street, there would be no chance that I will even get a copy of the game. They are so hostile over there... I swear they glare at each customer that enter the store. -shivers- My mother even told them off for their behavior towards their customers.

I guess I'll see when the bundle system actually arrives, I need another copy of the artbook to share with friends.


Gamestop as a company sucks ass. Lets not kid ourselves here. Their business practices are assinine and i dont know how they get away with shit like selling open/used games as 'new' But you are right that there are a few half decent Gamestops with employees who aren't total idiots.

its kinda funny how varied it can be. Theres 2 in my town. One is great, with employees that know their shit and make sure i get my pre-order stuff. Hell they even give me extra swag from time to time (stuff thats been sitting for a while, i dont take other peoples shit). The other one in town though.. jesus christ. Stafed by the most stereotypical teenage idiots you could meet

The ONLY thing you can do, is use that survey on the receipt. DONT GIVE THEM A 1, a lot of 1's are immediately ignored. If you want your comment to be heard, rate them a 2-4. Those comments go to the store manager, and more importantly, the district manager. I honestly cannot stress how important those surveys are to people keeping their jobs at gamestop.



Huh.. thats good to know, thanks for the info. I usually just go the 1 route. I'll change that in the future


My mailman/woman is pretty bad too. Once my graphics card from Amazon ended up a few houses down the road. Luckily my neighbor is nice and brought it over. Other times they claim we didn't answer the door for a package, yet they never even approached our door. :cold:


Mine is god awful too. Luckily he rarely actually puts it in the wrong box since we have a group mailbox cluster (its a court), but i cant count the number of times hes crammed an artbook or some package into the mailbox. Folded it over, squashed it, whatever.

Isn't there any place to complain about that? Ive actually tried going into the post office and trying to get it set to ALWAYS leave packages at the DOOR, but its nothing but a bunch of burnouts in there and nothing happened.

I pre-ordered on the 30th of January, and last night I received shipping confirmation/tracking numbers for the bundle and artbook (they're coming together in the same package I think).

I haven't had a handheld console since the GameBoy Color... this will be fun. :D
