Got an email from shopto about an account charge today which reminded me of my preorder there and for the 1 at amazon. Logged into my amazon account could not find it then went looking through my emails for the order number to make sure I had indeed ordered it, found it, then found another email dated 28/08/09 to tell me info about my order as below.

Probably doing their usual trick, they have a low preorder price then cancel it, despite their 'preorder guarantee' they need to be reported to trading standards really because they take the ****, I wont preorder anything from then anymore…8-3

Thing is though it's same price as it was and is still available to buy @ £24.99

I had a similar problem a few years ago with a game from them. I think the publisher had changed and they gave it a new ASIN catalogue number.
