So is the discount shown automatically when you pre-order? Reading comments, it sounds rather hit or miss?

Also, does this apply to special editions?

The 20% prime discount does apply to collector's and special editions. Usually it'll show in small text next to the prime logo 'your price is $XX.XX'. It'll also show the savings as a deduction off the game total on the final page of checkout before you confirm your purchase. So you can also check there.

My preorder for World of Final Fantasy Limited Edition is getting delayed as well, it releases tomorrow.

Talked to Amazon, they extended my Prime membership by a month for free, and gave me $10 off the already discounted order (I'm getting the game for PS4 all-in for $40)

I'm happy with that resolution. I didn't need to play it day 1 anyway.

Amazon created a shipping label a day before release but have yet to send out my Battlefield 1 order. I contacted them and they said it was stuck in transit and decided to ship another order free of charge that's expected by tomorrow, we shall see if it shows up. Gave my account a $5 voucher which can be used when ordering something else next.
RIP E3 30% off pre order games 2011-2017 :twisted:

Nope. When I spoke to CS last week they said I'd have it by the 20th. It still hasn't shipped. My order now shows it'll arrive this Friday. I'm not holding my breath.

Regular or Limited?

I was told it's out of stock, but I have the limited edition one. So I'm curious.

Well I just spoke to CS and I'm fuming.

It seems my game was scheduled to be shipped to me in January. The system had it shipping out mid January! I cannot believe it!
She tried to push it trough but the system wouldn't let her to do it.
She cancelled my order without asking and gave me a $15 credit however I ordered at 49.99 - 20% ... 79.99 - 15$ isn't much of a deal.
I've emailed her back to see if she can fix it again.

Also, in her email response she stated that he problem was that I picked free shipping. If I would of picked 1 day shipping I would not have had any issues with delivery.
WTH

+++Edit+++

The situation seems to have been resolved. The second rep made me re-order and adjusted the price to the promo price I had pre ordered so I don't get additional rebates but I still get my 39.99$ pre-order price.

Now, who knows when this one will shipp as it is still with free shipping.

According to both reps a 2 to 3 week delay for free shipping is uncommon but normal.. Sigh

Nope mine hasn't shipped either but it says on time with an estimate of the 27th for arrival. I know damn well it wont make it and I plan to rip customer service a new hole once its past date. Already complained 3 times and theyre useless, I don't even want the game anymore.

Funny thing is battlefield 1 was ready to ship on Monday and hasn't either. Says its supposed to arrive on Friday. Ill believe it when I see it.

After the big ordeal yesterday and having to cancel my pre-order from 2015, placing a new order and having them adjust the price it seems I have to restart the waiting process before it ships. Today the estimated arrival date is November 1st for Gears 4.. what a joke!

amazon says battlefield 1 is shipping for me today.... and wouldn't you know it gears shows that now too. Im willing to bet they held it back to ship them together. Itll be interesting to see if both games arrive in the same box. Still going to complain as it will arrive later than the shipping window and almost 3 weeks after release. Unacceptable.
