Curse You, GameStop
Right. Pissed off now. The Guild Wars: Factions Collector’s Edition has been delayed. This has been known for about a week. GameStop and EB Games have been instructed to tell their customers that the CE will not be available on the 28th of April. Looking on various message boards and forums has confirmed this information. Just rang my GameStop, and I’m not guaranteed a copy because they were not provided a SKU for it. I should never have trusted them. Not only may I not get a CE, but I won’t even get to play Factions on the day of release if I do manage to get my hands on a CE. They say that I can wait and see if they get any Collector’s Editions in with their shipment. Yeah… No.
Now I’m looking at various online places, hoping that one will allow me to place an order for the CE. ArenaNet instructed all retailers to pull listings of the CE from their sites. I think demand has been higher than they expected. I want that Collector’s Edition! eBay…?
EDIT: Right. Placed my order with CompUSA, but feeling very pessimistic about their ability to provide me with a Collector’s Edition, knowing that it’s possible that they may say “Sorry, we neglected to tell you that we don’t have enough copies to ship to all of our customers. You are out of luck”.
Well, at least I’ll be able to play the Factions content from tomorrow until Sunday, because I’ve got the pre-order pack. I’m still pissed off that the rest of my guildmates will be playing Factions ahead of me. Yeah, I could get the standard edition, and I suppose this part is my fault because I “have” to have the Collector’s Edition. *sigh*
Yes, I am complaining because I may not get what I want. So?
EDIT: After this shit, and the other shit I went through with my pre-order for Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence, I don’t think I ever want to use a bricks-and-mortar store to reserve games ever again.
