WHAT THE ****! Thank God I still have one pre-ordered on Amazon, I'll just be missing out on the extra profit. Should I call them and try to get some compensation for terrible customer service? I didn't get an email or anything, just checked order status today and it was cancelled.

I'm sure they received more orders for the CE than they have supply for. At least you got a CE from amazon. I don't think you should be compensated.

I thought it was kinda too good to be true for an online store to still have that many collector editions available this close to the release. Maybe they took in more orders than they could supply. Still, an email notice woulda been the least they can do about a cancellation. Unless you got charged though I doubt you'll get more than an apology for the inconvenience.

Buy.com is the worst online shopping website, never buy from them. For pre-orders, I ordered the Mass Effect 3 Collector's Edition on buy.com since it was the only website available around a month before release, and I got the copy a week after the release date. I found the website very suspicious beforehand anyway, since I had no way to cancel something that wasn't even shipped yet. Because of this, I found out Amazon had copies of the ME3 CE available a day before the release and I quickly pre-ordered it, and received it a day after release date. That really isn't that bad considering how late I pre-ordered it on Amazon, but buy.com couldn't even send it early on, with no possible way to cancel.

You should feel lucky yours got canceled, don't ever give any money to buy.com.

Just go to a best buy if you have one in your area. My local BB is getting 48 CEs in for the midnight release and I don't even live in a major city.

This isn't mass effect 1/2 any other CEs will most likely be terrible "investments". Besides there will be plenty more available on or shortly after release day.
