Preordered the XB1 LE for in store pickup on 7/21.  No cancellation as of yet.

I'm late to this discussion, so LE are being canceled? What if you preordered in store, how will you know if it got canceled?

I asked a similar question on the BB unlocked forums and got a reply from Matt, a BB rep:

 

Hello Veridis_Quo,

 

All customers that were impacted by these cancellations would have been notified via email by now, so if you haven’t received a cancellation notification, your pre-order is still active.

 

Thanks for connecting with us on the forum.

 

Sincerely,

 

Also it seems most people receiving these cancellations preordered after July 23rd onwards. Anything before and I think we're ok. Unless anyone states otherwise.

I just received one of those take a second look emails from best buy with a link to the sold out limited edition of destiny:) Thanks for making fun of me best buy

 

They send me too many emails like that or emails telling me I have something in my cart when I don't. It's annoying.

This +1,000,000

 

I always laugh when they tell me it's still the perfect time to buy something that is out of stock. xD

Thanks for the reply, I guess I got lucky because I preordered on July 22. I'm still gonna make sure I show up at opening on release day just to be sure.

Does anyone think that some BB will have the LE and GE of Destiny at the midnight launch for those who did not preorder? Like extra copies for the shelves. I know that you do not have to preorder in order to go to a store that is doing a midnight launch of the game. All you have to do is show up and they should have regular copies. I am just not sure if they will have LE or even GE copies of the game itself. Wish the Digital guardian edition was for Xbox One.


Do not expect any extras at the midnight launch. You will have to wait and hope someone doesn't pick up their pre order in the 7 day window they get.

If it's an in-store pickup order, you get 8 days to get it, regardless of what it is, with day 1 being the day it's available for pickup.  Once it's gone past 8 days, it returns to store stock and your online order is canceled.

Specifically:


Store Pickup

 

Store Pickup lets you buy items online and pick them up in a store. You avoid shipping and scheduled delivery charges – and you may be able to get your order faster.

 

Here's how it works:
  • During checkout, choose Store Pickup and select your store.
  • We'll show you an estimated pickup date.
  • Place your order and wait to receive a "Ready for pickup" e-mail. (This is a separate e-mail from your order confirmation.)
  • Bring your ID, credit card, and order number to the store and pick up your items.
  • We'll hold your items at the store for 8 days. If you don't make it in by then, we'll cancel the order and refund your method of payment.

So I ordered on 7/26/14 in store and did not receive a canceled email. Best buy sucks at sending me emails though so I'm worried still. I still haven't received my GCU coupons yet.

Still no email for me. My GCU was active during the preorder, so they have my contact info...hoping for the best.

I ordered the PS3 Limited on July 24th and have not received an email. Might be different dates for different systems.

It has a reserve and a Buy It Now of $800. I doubt it's anywhere near as cheap as it looks at first glance.

You get a cool looking destiny t-shirt if you pick it up at my BB so if for some reason they have no LE then at least I got a t-shirt. Hopefully Bungie and MS will allow for the purchase of the digital guardian edition one the ONE when it releases as well.

Well I guess I can admit I was way wrong about this not being limited...I thought for sure with Activision and Bungie they would over produce but I was wrong.

If it was ONLY Activision, you woulda been right.  

But Bungie had their say in the matter.  I'm sure they never forgot about "cat helmet-palooza".

Alright I don't want to cause a panic or anything, but my ghost editions on Amazon were both just canceled, by amazon. About 30 minutes ago. Now I'm afraid for my Gamestop pre-order...

Only the PS4 and Xbox One have been affected with the cancellations.

 

Hello everyone,

 

We, like other retailers, have experienced high demand in pre-orders for Destiny and are not able to secure enough product to fulfill all of our pre-orders. This has resulted in some order cancellations for the Limited Edition version of Destiny on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Only those versions are impacted and all cancellations occurred last night, 8/5/14.
