    Yeah basically stuffed, you’d like to think they will email giving you the option to deliver.

    Think of all the money they will miss out of by not being able to fulfil the orders

    My game store called me up earlier. Said i have 2 options. Either make an appointment to go down tuesday/wednesday IF they are still open to pay in full then get it delivered to my home if they have to close. Or wait untill they can open (december)

    To be fair they could cancel all the orders and stick them online again for delivery only and sell out again :#

    I just hope my Amazon delivery still comes, got a bad feeling these lockdowns may result in a delay so they can still sell out

    Idk

    My local store said I need to take my ID & etc in when I collect it

    I'm hoping I can go into the store Monday, give them my ID to verify and etc, and then switch to delivery

    Read a lot of stuff saying they won't be able to deliveries though as appaz its all at max capacity but who knows

    so annoying

    I was in contact with GAME last week about this. They’ll send emails out soon but they’ll just switch your order to an online one as they took either your email OR reward card details

    Just make sure you reward card email is up to date!

    Can you not just do the payment plan but have the delivery method switched to online? so dumb

    People who like it old school. I still prefer to buy the disc for that good old feeling.

    Although i have to agree. It this unprecedented time, surely you should have considered yhe possibility of this.

    I had to go in-store to get mine, I tried online which was my first choice but the website was crashing nonstop so had no choice

    No it's not but thats the job for the government and not us gamers. They are the ones who left this probably 3 weeks later.

    Anyways. There's always kids starving to death elsewhere every other day for ever! We don't just throw that into every post do we?

    Just saying.
