Topic: Xenoblade Pre-order

Posts 1 to 9 of 9


This is an email message I received from Game today:

Dear MR Collins

Thank you for the following order placed with GAME.

Order number(s):


As you may already be aware, the UK release date for Xenoblade Chronicles has changed to 02-Sep-2011. Changes to release dates are relatively common in the videogames industry and are unfortunately beyond our control.

HMMM, what a load of B#####! they had them in store since the 19th August.
I dont mind waiting a couple of weeks, but why cant they just admit they didnt order enough copies but took everyones preorders anyway, instead of pretending the release date has moved.



That's weird. This game really is selling like crazy, isn't it.

I don't think it was Game's fault on this one. I've heard that very few copies of Xenoblade were produced (We're talking in the thousands). I ordered a copy of the Classic Controller bundle on Friday so that should be arriving today - Game still have those in stock online if you want to go that route?

This game is selling quite a lot better than Nintendo expected. I'd say, get your hopes up if this goes on, North Americans.

Yeah keep buying it till all the stock is out! But two or three and give them away as presents. I NEED to play this game!! Now really the Wii doesn't have that many good rpgs then alone a great one.

I only ordered it after seeing the reviews, I have never really played JRPGs or many RPGs, but I thought this looks good enough to give a try,



It's good indeed, but does a lot to make it feel quite different from other RPG's. So even if you have played many an RPG, it still feels fresh, I'd say.

I can't believe they just lied like that...

As you say, they'd do well to be honest and just admit that they're waiting on stock. I'm sure it'd fly with some people who don't keep an eye on gaming websites, but it undermines their credibility by flat out lying like that!

In my experience GAME is really a crappy place to buy games, and I'm glad I've got plenty of other options!

I used to have a blog link here. I'll put it back up when the blog has something to read.


Explanation: Game sucks. And lies, apparently.
