Battlefield still hasn't shipped, if it's late that will be the 3rd game in a row for me from Amazon that's late. I have probably 30 game orders so I'm gonna tell them I'll start cancelling if they keep being late.

My Gears 4 should arrive tomorrow though, only 10 days late!!

Is the 20% just games or will it be for the new Nintendo?

My BF1 as well hasn't shipped yet. I was really looking forward to playing this weekend as it's my only weekend off in over a month so buck up amazon. I ordered a blu ray on wednesday and it just shipped a few hours ago and is on time for tomorrow delivery but not sure how BF1 will get here on time.

Then again, when amazon uses its own courier company they have processed, shipped, and delivered packages from ontario to edmonton in less than 24 hours which shocked me.

I have Amazon Prime. I pre-ordered Dragon Quest Builders and just got it two days ago.
Battlefield One has not shipped yet. Amazon was late with a couple of my PS VR pre-orders as well.

Rise of the Tomb Raider PS4 was the only one that arrived on time out of recent releases.
Usually they are a day or two late. Sometimes up to a week or more.

For movies, or other items they seem to be a lot faster or better with shipping on time.

I got my BF1 today as well through Canada Post. Played through the first mission, I like what they do, it's different.... Gonna blow through the campaign and flip it on kijiji... Between Rocket League and Overwatch, I've got my fill of multiplayer gaming.

What's causing so many of you who live near a shipping centre to receive these so late? I live in Winnipeg and when I pre-order anything I always receive it either the day of, or the day before release... Never after, not even once.

I used to never get games late but the last month or two I've had several issues. No idea if it's Amazon or Canada Post but someone is dropping the ball. Last time I chatted with customer service they assured me it would "never happen again" but unlikely some guy in India really knows. So there's no real way to know what's causing it, just complain when it happens ...

Here is my amazon preorder story still waiting on my gears 4 that I ordered over a year ago and it was first shipping on the 12th then the 14th then the 19th. Today it said shipping today but it didnt but they did bill my credit card twice for it. I hope i get my battlefield 1 preorder before xmas. What a joke and i have too call tomorrow about the double charge.
