As soon as it went live last night. The website stated my store had 3 in stock even though I didn't actually see them in-store during the day. I figured they pulled them off the shelves. I got the email this morning stating it was cancelled. Looked on-line before the cancellation and the store was down to 2 so I thought I was ok. I got the cancellation and the store count went back to 3. I'm thinking they couldn't find it even though it's there.
It gets tricky when there's only one in stock. Good luck.
That sucks. Were you able to place a regular order for shipping?
I had thoughts about placing the order for local pickup, but I knew there was only the one copy at my local store (have been keeping tabs on it for a few months). Figured it was probably safer within the first hour of the sale to just bite the bullet and have it shipped versus chancing the store pickup with that lone copy, especially since I couldn’t be sure someone else wouldn’t order it as well, and then it would come down to who got their order picked first. Plus there were a few games I ordered that weren’t normally carried at my location, so it just made sense to have everything shipped. However, when I saw your message about your copy being canceled, I got a little worried thinking that perhaps it was a rarer commodity in general. Hoping it isn’t, as I’ve been patiently waiting for the price drop, and if the availability fell through, I don’t know what recourse I would have to pick up a copy outside of eBay. Fingers crossed.
