Gamestop Online Orders "Backorder"Follow

For those of you who have pre-ordered online with Gamestop. I just logged into my Gamestop account and looked at my shipping progress and it says "Backordered" where it used to say "Pre-Ordered". I called Gamestop online services and the lady informed me that it is a glitch with their system on anything that showed Pre-order now shows back-order. Strange..but anyways she then assured me that my order is in the packaging process and then will be shipped out. So anyone with this same problem, looks like it will be ok! No worries! :)

yeah, I can't comment for gamestop, but I know alot of online shopping sites will list the status of the item in general, and not always your allocated copy of the game. You could be first in line, but if the item is out of stock, they'd still show back ordered.

I near had a heart attack. My account hasn't been charged yet, even though there had been a pending hold on my funds for the amount of money it'd cost to pay for the CE, plus taxes and shipping. Wonder what happened there.

Regardless, I do hope this arrives on the 22nd.

I was flipping out over this, too. It said "back-ordered" when I checked earlier. I fumed and called them, too. Told me it is back-ordered, but not for pre-orders, just for people who order now.

I am happy it'll be coming. =)

I went to Gamestop after work today and paid off my CE. The employee there, who is also playing, and I then spent 30 minutes trying to talk the manager into a midnight release but he wasn't going for it Smiley: bah

so what are my chances of getting it on the 22nd if I pre-ordered on 7/26/10?

You have a good chance depending on where you are, however calling before they closed it is indeed backordered in many areas but the glitch is it shows for everyone when it should only show for certain areas.

I had already cancelled my gamestop order and reordered through amazon before reading this. Good to see I'm just paranoid! I managed to save $20 on shipping 2 copies with amazon's release date shipping, so it wasn't totally for nothing.. lol

Just giving a heads up that now when I log into my Gamestop account that it now shows "Shipped". So it seems that the "backorder" glitch was indeed a glitch. Hopefully this is the case for everyone that Pre-ordered using Gamestop. Good luck!

Maybe because the street date is 9/22/10?

My order just switched from verifying to that same status.

I'm holding off on calling them until tomorrow afternoon. If it isn't to you on the Street Date, they'll refund you your shipping cost.

Nah, I was more or less stating that it should have been shipped today for delivery tomorrow. The website says it won't be shipped until tomorrow. So, I called Gamestop and the rep told me that items that show as "backordered" means that processing is already complete and the reason the website shows that status is because of a different SKU number. He also said when it reverts back to a "preorder status" it means it's in the warehouse and should be shipped today. IMO it's a lot of confusion for people. I wish their website would give a more accurate status like, "Chill the **** out, it's coming tomorrow already," rather than, "We may or may not be shipping your order, and you won't know until it's too late."

So.... for anyone that was confused by their status of shipment as well.... this is to clarify what I was told. We'll see come tomorrow whether or not the rep was pulling my chain.

Mine shows shipped... however the tracking info on UPS site is saying:

>>> UPS could not locate the shipment details for your request. Please verify your information and try again later.

Calling to verify! =(

Mine shows shipped, as well. Plus, according to the tracking #, my copy is already in my state, which means that I should have my copy by the time I get home from wok tomorrow evening.
