So I pre-ordered the CE from Gamestop back in early July. They "pre-authed" it friday of last week, and the charge cleared on monday. They however didn't ship til tuesday, that's a gripe for another time. However, I noticed the charge on my card has vanished this morning, and the game is still out for delivery. Not getting my hopes up, but wonder if anyone else experienced this.

yes I experienced this in the past. Was stoked that I might have gotten a game for free, but the charge went through like 2 weeks later :/

Part of me wants to say "meh" and just leave it alone unless they overcharge me down the road. The other part says that i'm not letting this fly, if they can't charge me properly, then their loss. Especially considering the wording on their website conflicts with when they shipped everyones copies. We'll see.

No reasonable person could assume that they would be given a free copy of a game. If the company doesn't charge you then that's one thing, but canceling the card so they can't charge you is technically wire fraud.

Oh, I wouldn't cancel the card. If I actually decided to go with the latter decision, I'd fight them in a more legal way. If there even was one. Just a little buttsore they shipped later than it seemed they would I guess :x

There is no fight. You will see the charge on your account in the next few days. Pretty standard. Nothing you can do to try to weasel out of not paying for what you got. There's no legal way to get reimbursed for getting your hopes up :P

It does suck that they are late with shipment though :/ Not as bad as Best Buy!

Im a big fan of Amazon. Used to be Newegg, but I heard they messed up this one.

No hopes getting up, they already broke those. Yeah, sucks about Worst Buy, there's a reason I call em Worst Buy :D
But one guy pre-ordered in a physical Gamestop store, and the night before release the store next to it burned down
so the Gamestop closed for 3 days.
