Blockbuster UK Back in Administration; Won't Honour PS4/XO Pre-Orders

Forums - Sales Discussion - Blockbuster UK Back in Administration; Won't Honour PS4/XO Pre-Orders

I'm posting this because Blockbuster UK this affect directly who pre-ordered PS4/Xbone through Blockbuster.

"We are sorry that you will be disappointed and that we can't fulfil any Xbox One or PS4 pre-orders at this time. We appreciate and recognise the amount of messages about pre-orders. We're sorry some of you haven't received your calls yet. They're happening as we type."

"Please visit facebook.com/BlockbusterUK for more information. Thanks."

Why would anyone have pre-ordered with Blockbuster, I wasn't entirely sure they were still alive

Personally, I was too worried about everyone going under other than Amazon...

I don't know they posted in July that they have the biggest pre-orders ever for consoles... so I guess somebody preodered... I think it is better advise everybody that they need to contact the Blockbuster to check this situation.



I thought they'd gone under too. Bleh.

I once picked up a copy of "The Movies: Stunts and Effects" in Blockbuster for 99p. I sold it on amazon for £17. So, you know, I liked them.

I also used to live near one and it was fun to browse games, but I never bought anything because they were overpriced.



So? Anyone ordering from Amazon August-September won't receive his pre-order until X-mas, anyone ordering September - now won't receive it until January 2014. They are still taking pre-orders, mind you.

"Alle Vorbestellungen, die nach dem 30. September 2013 erfolgen, werden voraussichtlich erst nach Weihnachten, spätestens aber bis Ende Januar 2014 ausgeliefert. Kunden mit einer Lieferadresse in Deutschland, die bis einschließlich 5. August 2013 vorbestellt haben, erhalten die PS4 am Erscheinungstag. Vorbestellungen, die zwischen dem 6. August 2013 und dem 30. September 2013 erfolgt sind, werden schnellstmöglich je nach Verfügbarkeit noch vor Weihnachten ausgeliefert. Über den genauen Liefertermin (sobald bekannt) informieren wir Sie per E-Mail und in Ihrer Bestellübersicht."

But but but, they had record breaking Xbox One pre-orders!



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

Bye Bye £350 (I only got it from BB because I'm friends with the guys who work there).

I think that is a different situation from Amazon... in Amazon your preorder can be deleyed but someday you will receive it... in Blockbuster you won't receive so you need to refund your invested money... I don't know something like that.



There was a hint last week when they stated they weren't getting AC4 in stock..

Feel sorry for anyone who pre-ordered with them, but the writing is always on the wall with them - they cannot survive in this market, it also doesn't help that the people who now own them are apparently well known - money grab owners before throwing it to the wall.

Yeah, maybe. That quote from Blockbuster doesn't really clarify anything...which honestly isn't a particulary good sign if you think about it.
