PSA: Newegg Battlefield 4 PS4 out of stock (pre-orders - voided!)

newegg battlefield 4 preorder

Checked my order status on Newegg this morning and found out they ran out of stock on Battlefield 4 for PS4.  That includes pre-orders, apparently.  I placed an order a month or two ago when they were running a promotion discounting the game by around $11.

 

If you think you have a pre-order coming from Newegg, check your order details!

 

It may have been voided!

 

Just putting this information out there for others before the Amazon (and other) B2G1 deals go live.  It's not too late to get a good deal :)

Huh, interesting.  Mine managed to ship this morning.

Guess I was one of the early order numbers.  No idea whether I'm getting the China Rising expansion, though.  Probably not, knowing Newegg.

Lucky!  I'm not sure how many people are affected by this but I had a little mini-crisis when I checked my e-mail earlier and figured I could maybe help some others out that will be in the same situation.

 

I'm hoping that China Rising will be included for free with the first print of the game, or just included by default for those who buy it new.  Guess we'll find out soon.  I expect to pick up Premium at some point, which should include it, but still.

Uh so I don't know if it helps, but my PC BF4 from NewEgg did not come with the China Rising DLC.

I had this issue regarding bf4 for ps3. I preorder it with the $11 discount. They shipped me the standard edition. Called customer service, I returned the game so they could send me the limited edition which is the one I preordered. They e-mailed me back stating they didn't get any limited edition copies for preorders. Theyre going to send the standard edition along with a $15 gift card. What a hassle.

I wouldn't be a holiday season without NewEgg completely fucking up a simple preorder.

PC has been the only version of BF4 that has two SKU's (one that includes China Rising and one that doesn't.) that I've seen so far.

The PS4 version I picked up elsewhere had the code with it.

My $18 Wal-Mart 360 version has no mention of China Rising, and no code. So I guess I'm missing the expansion?

 

I guess not really a big deal, since I didn't plan on spending much time with the 360 version anyway. I told myself I wasn't even going to bother with the current gen version, but for $18 I had too.

newegg has messed up so many of my orders that my wife actually gets mad at me if i try to grab a new deal with them because she knows the future -- the deal will be messed up by newegg someway, somehow.

So Newegg has time to make forum accounts and play damage control but can't be bothered to, I don't know, actually ship the products people have had ordered for months?

ban plz

I hope PSA stands for Piece of Shit Assholes.

 

 

What does pre-order even mean nowadays if I'm not guaranteed a game?

 

God, nothing is sacred anymore.

You know you're going to get great customer service when a rep tells you to send an email to a telephone number.

I didn't preorder this, but I have another preorder on Newegg. I'll be mad if they cancel on it. Sounds like this is a pretty frequent issue with Newegg.

Newegg cancelled a preorder? No way? I can't believe it! They don't just do this sort of thing all the time! Anyone who preorders from newegg should know that you have about a 50% chance that something will go wrong.

Exactly, NewEgg would never do anything like that or send games in a thin ass bubble mailer so the game or case doesn't show up broke all to hell. ;) Thanks NewEgg!
