I pre-ordered Ni no Kuni and I am still waiting for it. Worst, it should be here next week. Are you kidding me? I have a game store two minutes from my house. I can get up, buy the game and sit back down again in 15 minutes. My beer will still be cold.
I never order anything i cant wait from amazon. They times can vary, they somethings take forever but sometimes only days.
Im sure there are other sites that sells games for low prices and have exceptionally reliable shipping.
If you live in UK go to shopto.net. Alot of times next day but they say soemthing like if u dont recieve within 2 days you give u credit on ur account to use towards next purchases.
agreed, shopto are great for getting games on release date even with the 1st class post.
Im from the UK and i have had issues with Shopto on two occasions getting my game, and due to there return policy getting refunded also took a while :(
Anyways TC Amazon is normally very reliable, in the past i always used 1st class delivary and got it on the day it would be released in the shops, sometimes even a day before if i was lucky.
It can just be a mistake from the postal service on why it has not arrived, when i used to live in Bournemouth the service from the royal mail there was f*****g auful getting my things lost on numorous occasions... So it may be a issue of where you live. On the plus side though although the post office staff didnt seem to give a f***, Amazon always either sent another copy to my work or gave me a full refund.
Anyway... check with you're post service, if they have not seen it (or in the back) then talk to Amazon about getting a refund and go buy it at that game shop you are close too.
did you get it from Amazon themselves or from a business on Amazon? did you get release day shipping?
If you got it directly from Amazon with release day shipping, call them up. i bet they will refund shipping costs or offer some sort of compensation.
I just got a message from customer service and they said that they indeed had troubles with the shipping. They are giving me a small refund. It is still not shipped, but at least they took the time to respond.
