I wonder if MS will refund people who had multiple orders?

Due to a system error, your order was mistakenly and temporarily cancelled, and you probably got an email from us telling you that. The good news is that we were able to fix it, and your order is now back in our system and on its way to you. The even better news is that, to apologize for the confusion, we're going to send your order to you for free, at no charge to you.

Not only will you get your order free, you'll still get $10 off your next order and 1600 free Xbox LIVE points that you already had coming to you.


Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


WTF?!?!?!

WOW!!!


Congrats to all those that got this!!

Nice! Got an email for one of my two orders, although not the other yet, so hopefully that's working itself through as well. Well handled.

It's so bittersweet for me. I wish I would've ordered a game I actually wanted. Instead I ordered Just Dance 4 because it was the cheapest and I only wanted the points. :(

I wondered how they went about people that ordered multiple games? I sincerely doubt they'd let someone walk away with hundreds of dollars in free games and MSP.

I wonder how many people got the Halo 4 L.E. for free?

Well, since I re pre ordered from best buy, I'll just return one of the sealed copies to WalMart or something and get the money back while keeping the preorder bonus from best buy. SHWEEEET POINTS AND A LAMP AND A DLC! :D


That's return fraud and discussions of that type are not welcome here.

Well, it seems to have only affected games coming out this week from what folks are reporting, so it's not like every preorder is being comped.

I also can't tell from the notification if it is talking about a particular one of my two orders, or both in general, since no other details are included.

My bad. Just excited is all. Will remove the post. In all honesty I'll probably just sell it to a friend. XD Going to a store is too much of a hassle.

That sucks bro...

I am one of the people that have preordered two games from them (Dishonored and Fable). Both got "canceled" I talked to one of the representative online and she said that I will be getting these games for free. So we shall see...

I also got an email about this as well, but only one email for now.

Give it some time....

Also, don't be surprised if the points/$10 come a bit late.

I still haven't gotten my goodies from Borderlands 2
It sounds like they are still working on the issue.


Sweet. It looks like mine was never cancelled. Congrats to those that are getting it for free. Wish I'd seen the deal earlier and could have gotten in on that. But I'm still glad to be getting it with the pre-order bonuses.

Yeah I am actually very surprised. First time in my life that I have gotten a game for free. I honestly would have been "content" with free points and a 10 dollar promo. But hey can't complain about free games.

Nope, that's not the case. I'm getting Just Dance 4 for free and that doesn't come out for another month.

I got the email too. Dishonored, $10 future credit and 1600 MS points for free. Not a bad deal.

I will say that I went to BB today to preorder the game after getting the cancellation email this morning. I'll have to go get that $5 back.

This is great news but now I don't know what to do. After I got the email this morning I called them up to ask why it was cancelled and they said they didn't know so I re-pre-ordered. Now I get it all for free, should I cancel my second pre-order? Decisions decisions.

So it does. I was looking at the Wii U release date this whole time. :lol:

Best. Store. Ever.

Free game, $10 off code, and 1600 Microsoft Points = Amazing! :D

I wish I had pre-ordered all the games I want in one shot instead of pre-ordering one at a time.

I did the same thing. Dishonored came back in stock, so I said "what the heck" and preordered again. I called customer service to cancel my second order and the guy said that was free. Did I just get 2 free copies of Dishonored, 3200 MS points, and $20 store credit? Only time will tell...

Well crap. I actually just preordered Dishonored a little bit ago myself without checking this thread. I haven't received a confirmation nor a cancellation. I'm wondering which one I'll get?

Do they even have it in stock anymore? If they did it wouldn't ship out to tomorrow evening. They ship out from California so it would probably take 3 or 4 days depending on where you are.

I suggest either renting it. You could always do the less than honorable thing and pick it up from Walmart and return the new/sealed copy when you get it from MS.
