I ordered 2x Ghost (1 for PS4 and 1 for Xbox One), and 2x Limited.  Why?  Because I can't make up my mind on what edition I want, or what console I want it for.  I figure I'll cancel 3 of those orders closer to the release date.

 

Unless they require you to pay in full, I'd recommend doing something similar if you can't make up your mind.  They seem to be selling out rather rapidly.  Since Best Buy just requires an authorization, I don't see it as a big deal.

I ended up having to order a PS4 version from here, since everybody else seems to be sold out. I just wish they would've given me the instore pick-up option, instead of having to get it shipped to me.

Can someone please explain why the "ghost" edition is so wanted? What is all the hype about? This is one of the most hyped up special edition ever!

I have this pre-ordered for PS4 from both Walmart and Newegg. I missed Amazon/Gamestop/BB. Of the two, do you know which is more reliable with Collector's editions, in terms of actually getting what you pre-ordered? I once ordered one from Newegg and it never shipped because they did not get enough stock. I have tax at Walmart but not Newegg. Thanks!

Everyone wants it because it's sold out.

From what I've read in the past, Newegg seems to be notorious when it comes to pre-orders due to the exact reason you mentioned. It's a good idea to have a backup plan (which you seem to have with Walmart).

 

Haven't really purchased any games from Walmart since God of War III CE, so it's been a couple of years. However the CE came in pristine conditions. No gripes from me.

 

I'd just keep both pre-orders up until the NewEgg one ships. If it doesn't, at least you'll still have your Walmart pre-order.

Has anyone tried ordering the Ghost Edition at Walmart in store? I just called a local Walmart and the guy seemed to think if they didn't have the little cards for that edition then they couldn't do it in store.

Also how does preordering at Walmart.com work? Do they take the whole amount out when you preorder or does the payment come out when it ships? Also how hard is it to cancel a preorder at Walmart.com? I have a bunch of Amazon credit and if it becomes available at Amazon again I would definitely rather order it from there.

I don't think Walmart charges until it ships.  I looked on there FAQ and it says that on orders they make authorization with your card company you have but don't charge till it ships.  I just pre ordered through Walmart and haven't seen a charge yet.

Earlier today I sent an email to Walmart.com customer service asking about this.

Hi .,

We are glad to assist with your inquiries regarding our video games pre-orders, in this case an authorization hold will be placed trough your payment method to ensure that there are available funds at the moment of billing, you will be billed as soon as your order ships, however if you pay trough paypal you will be charged immediately. If you decide to cancel the order the authorization hold will be removed within 3-5 days as soon as your order is not in shipping process yet.

If you have additional questions, please reply to this email and we'll be happy to assist.

Sincerely,

Allan A.


So technically they don't charge you but there would be a hold on the entire amount in your account from the time you order it. Which might as well be charging you because it would not have it in your available funds. This sucks because I can't have a $150 hold on my checking account from now till September.

C'mon Amazon, get the Ghost Edition back in stock!

I was able to pre-order PS4 Ghost on walmart.com yesterday around 1:50pm EST. Hoping it isn't canceled.

RIP bank account :'(

Destiny is gonna be good, I know it's also going to be on last gen but really it is a PS4 and XB1 game. I'd actually like to see some comparison videos of the current and last gen versions.

Will the limited editions be back in stock before launch on amazon?

It's very possible. I've seen several LE come back at Amazon, GameStop, Etc. When you have sites that charge when items ship, you get cancellations before hand, or maxed out CC, and you'll see several cancellations. I also believe some of the major retailers get extra stock once allocations have been made. The biggest issue isn't "if" it will happen, it's normally a matter of "when".

 

I've gotten several games after release on Amazon, and GS when there where sold out at launch. Bravely Default, Persona 4 Golden, The Last Of Us. As long as a company doesn't under deliver a game, you'll always see extra's at some point, but it may be hard to catch. Normally I luck up and happen to be on CAG at the right time, but I've missed a few games over the years due to the wrong times. LOL

More stock will return after the start of the Betas because people will cancel after they get their free code.

Unlikely.  Why would someone preorder the Limited or CE just to get a beta code when they could just preorder the regular edition?  You will probably see some stock of those editions a week or so before release as people start to have their credit cards reauthorized by Gamestop and people cancel their Amazon preorders.  I wouldn't count on BB putting more stock up, at least not until after release.

Same here, a bunch of bull, are they not getting them after all or what? It would suck so much to know only some people got their orders cancelled and some others didn't. Either way, its still bull because either they had enough in stock to be selling them online that day or didn't and I ordered the first day.

Why is everyone going crazy for this ghost edition?

Because its bungie and they have actually made limited editions that are limited before. Let alone the last few CEs for Halo games went for massive amounts of money.

Reach had the flaming helmet that topped out at like $160 on eBay. Halo 3 CEs brought good money.

4 not so much but that wasn't a bungie title.

For a collector they have had nice items before and distinctive in game items. The reach figurine was pretty good.
