I just wanted to chime in because I am that mate that Pinkeye69 is referring to in his original post. Thanks for bringing this up here buddy.
This is the thread that is running on the Bioware forums:
It's now 12 pages long...
The crazy thing is they're not just cancelling recent pre-orders, they've cancelled pre-orders that were originally placed as early as the middle of 2011!!
Also, if there are problems with payment cards or anything else then why not contact us? A running theme is that people's pre-orders have been cancelled yet they have received no notification/communication regarding this.
I have now placed an order at www.gamestop.ie as they still seem to be taking pre-orders for the N7 Collector's Edition. I am pretty much in their hands now. I just hope they come through for me!!
I shall wait to hear what the official word is tomorrow. However, I am not too hopeful because this has happened in the past (not to me personally) with Dragon Age II and I think Forza Motorsport 4 LCE too.
Poor show from Game and the lack of communication simply adds insult to injury. I suppose it's not the end of the world but when gaming is one's primary hobby/pass-time it is a little disappointing.
Erm...I'm new to the forum, what's the deal with the formatting?!
