Not exactly related to a "CE Guide" but I pre-ordered the Diablo 3 book of tyrael from Amazon about a month ago. Originally when I preordered the book said it would be released on Oct 31, 2013. Then a few days ago I got an email saying that the ship date had been changed, and that I was supposed to receive my copy on the 9th. That got me curious, so I logged on to amazon only to find that the book was actually listed as in-stock! Apparently the book was released on Oct 1st.

My question is, if I preordered the book, wasn't I supposed to get it on release date? Why would they delay shipping the book to me even though I preordered, even I could have ordered a 2nd copy right then and (with my Prime shipping) received it before my pre-order book even arrived? Doesn't seem like a stock or backorder issue, since the book is listed right there as being in stock on their website.

Is that kind of thing common? I was tempted to just re-order the book and cancel my unshipped pre-order, but I did see that the current in-stock price was slightly higher than the preorder price I got, and it's coming in a few days anyway so I will just wait. I'm mainly just curious if this kind of thing is common when pre-ordering?

Only happened to me when the publisher screwed up the release date or amount shipped.  Amazon probably didn't get notification from them when they were coming in, as the 31st was just a place holder date.  As far as in stock, since its sunday, your order would go out with the preorders that showing as mine being delivered on the 8th.

Yeah I just got concurrent emails from Amazon saying that BOTH my Pokemon and Disgaea hard covers got delays. Disgaea won't be in stock until the 15th (never mind that I've had it preordered since August) and Pokemon is now 10/22 (this one is probably my fault I just preordered it about 3 weeks ago). 

 

It's becoming a common occurrence with Amazon and CE guides. They have them for such a lower price than places like Gamestop and people don't mind waiting a few days.

It was mentioned in the Disgaea D2 guide thread that if you go to primagames.com and register, you can get the D2 e-guide for free.

Thanks for the heads-up.  I wasn't planning on buying it - or even looking at the updated first post - but when you said "$16.66" .... I suddenly had to have it !!  LoL.  (Man, I love Amazon.)

Yeah, I got FFXIII-3 in my quick picks the other day, saw it was piggyback and instantly bought it.

Should I contact CS about it? I have Prime so I think I should get free shipping. (Or at lease 2 day shipping which would mean 26th)

If you want to, but I preordered when it was $16.66, so I don't mind waiting a few more days.

Me as well, and I am not even planning on getting the game, so I have no idea what I'm actually worried about. Just wanted to have the best day ever on Friday, I guess.

I've noticed that strategy guides tend to be exempt from Release Day Delivery, at least for recent guides.

Does anyone know if the Zelda LBW collectors guide will be available at best buy? I don't see it listed on their website! I don't want to pay 35+ for it at GameStop!

I really hope that Dark Souls II guide goes to $14 like the first one did. I would definitely buy it at that price again.

Hell Yeah! I was starting to think they'd gone out of business. Seems like forever since their last guide.

 

Edit. Pre-ordered. Down to $25.11 on Amazon.

Preordered the Dark Souls 2 guide. Hopefully it drops like the first one, but at 20.99, good deal.

Lightning Returns guide dropped to $23.99 at Amazon. Not as cheap as when Best Buy had it for $19.99, but if anybody else like me ordered with the 30% book promo, it should drop to $16.79. My order hasn't updated yet, but I'm not worried.

Awesome! I preordered with the 30% book promo, as well; hopefully the orders should update within the day. :bouncy:

Check your order details--mine just updated to reflect the $23.99 price. :D/
