Is this for an online order from Toys R Us..? Has anyone heard about the in store preorders..? I preordered one for my brother there back in September...


Mine was an in store preorder, it said it was from my local toysrus store. I'm going to call them at lunch and find out what is going on.

I got the same e-mail for an in store preorder of a deluxe system

I got the same email. Hoping it's just standard protocol and they aren't getting in any systems until tomorrow or Sunday morning. Has anyone that preordered in store not gotten an email?

I received the same email and I ordered a few days after they started selling. Next I'm expecting an email saying that they won't have enough to cover every preorder. :/

I have not gotten an e-mail from them.. I used my Rewards card, so I am assuming that is how they sent out the e-mails..?

It's not just TRU, I just called my Best Buy and they said they haven't received their shipment yet either.

Best Buy did confirm to me that the Best Buy warehouse has them and has confirmed a delivery to my store for Sunday before opening from the warehouse.

Although they also told me they are not getting enough to cover the pre-orders so they said it's first come first serve for who gets the initial batch.

Dumb, the whole reason for pre-ordering is to have one set aside on launch day and it seems I will still have to get there early and hope I get one.


Did you pre-order with in-store pick up? If you get a confirmation email saying your item is ready to be picked up, they can't have a first come first serve. When they tell you it's ready, it means it should be specifically put aside for you and no one else. Isn't that the point of an instore pick up?

I was the first person that preordered at my Toys R Us, but I don't think that number really matters anyways... I should have just preordered my brother's at Gamestop like I did with mine, but I didn't want it to look like I was trying to resell...

They had at least 50 preorder slips for the Black system...

The slips in my TRU had barcodes for both the Deluxe and Basic models on the same slip and they scanned the one you wanted to preorder.
