I left pre ordering my GTA IV for PS3 a bit late and when I started looking on the 11th April, quite a few places has sold out of pre-orders for day of release.
I in the end settled with buying from Tesco.com and did a few of my mates. The website mentioned:
"Pre order now for delivery on date of release"
However, with it being released tomorrow, I was surprised to see that tesco shows my order as in stock but not yet dispatched. So I rang them up and basically they will not be posting any copies of GTA IV out today. They will be dispatched on the release date which is tomorrow and was told I may receive it tomorrow but might be wednesday.
Obviously i put my complaint across, saying how misleading the website was and the advisor was understanding (mentioned they had a few complaints already) but referred me to link which says 'what does that mean' on the product page which when clicked takes you to the page that states:
pre order now for delivery on date of release.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN:
This product has not yet been released for sale. You can order this product now and we will dispatch it on the suppliers release date"
So basically was told they do not guarantee delivery on day of release but will dispatch on day of release. What a con!
