I ordered mine about 4:30pm Friday, and was told over the phone that stock had been allocated, however now it says pre-order and they are telling me I should not have been told that the previous day.
So I ordered direct from MadCatz UK store and then phoned to double check, they told me I ‘will’ get one.
I know they are making more but I havn’t owned a stick in a long time and want to jump right back in not wait 3 months and then ‘maybe’ get one of the next production run. If I dont get one from Madcatz I think im gonna build my own lol.
I’m guessing maybe they didnt get many, cos i’d been refreshing the page every possible chance I could get to a computer
Whats done is done though, glad you guys got yours though, my fingers are crossed for gameshark to shine through, if not i’m gonna be hunting the stores on friday morning, although i’ve been in them everyday after uni anyway asking.
Gamestations manager here reckons he spoke to head office and the guy said the entire company is only getting 75 of them, and a couple friends of mine work in game and reckon they aren’t going to get any.
HMV say they have it listed but have no idea what stores are getting what or when, all they know is they dont have it as of 12 midday today.
Thats what im wondering about now, I phoned them in person and, oddly there wasnt any pre-recorded press 1 junk, just a guy picked up instantly and told me If the order went through that I would definately get one but that they were going fast.
I havn’t had any contact from them other than to let me know my order went through, I cant find out how to check the order status on the site and im crossing my fingers that it all works out. 5 Days for delivery means we definately wont be getting it on the day though.
I didnt sleep a single wink last night, im a huge limited edition ‘stuff’ nut and because its SF as well as limited edition im freaking out at the prospect I might not get one.
I just checked the website again and it says the 360 stick is out of stock, so either I pinched one of the very last ones or im likely to be in the same boat as I was with play.com earlier. The PS3 one is currently in stock however but for how long, who knows?
Well, my money is gone from the account but I don’t have a transaction showing on my online statement (I did it with a debit card not via paypal)
So my guess is paypal they take straight away. However the good news is that since my money is gone but I dont show a transaction that means the money is in that stupid holding phase.
Which is good news because them having taken the money (although it’s not been processed yet) is a better sign than anything else but it still doesnt guarantee and I wont be satisfied until I get an email.
Although the notice on the website not to call with questions regarding the SFIV stick is slightly offputting.
