PS4 HMV Pre- Orders

37 Replies 11,609 Views Created 13-11-2013

Just wondering if anyone on the forums has laid a deposit down at HMV for a ps4?

 

I did on the 4th July but have heard nothing. They took all my details but Ive had no phone call, email or  anything. Theres very little information on their twitter feed where they advise people to go for the latest news.

 

Has this just happened to me or is this a general thing with HMV. Ive always pre-ordered with them and usually the have been really good and kept me in the loop but it just seems since all their troubles the seem bad at communicating with people by giving very little information away. Staff in store never seem to be able to help either and usually just end up saying "come back in next week and we might know more".

It's a general thing with HMV.

I didn't know they were even selling any, the website doesn't list any gaming products at all. In fact, it says "Games coming soon".
I assume you ordered in store? If so I would be re-visiting them

Hey,

 

Yes I've also pre-ordered my PS4 with HMV and they said we will ring you with news about upgrading to bundles etc. Did they? No

 

I wen't in store yesterday to my local branch (sheffield) and they said and i repeat "we will ring the manager and find out". so they took my details and later rang me. they said this on the phone even though i pre-ordered several months back that im not garenteed a PS4 and that their wont be a midnight launch...

 

Useless only reason why i bought with them was so i could get it at midnight launch.

 

Looks like ill be getting up at 6am to que up for my PS4 -.-

I've just spoke to hmv in liverpool after pre ordering my ps4 back at the start of august and the guy I spoke to said that anyone who pre ordered their ps4 before the 6th of aug deadline SHOULD get theirs release day. The guy I spoke too also said they had only just found out how many xbones they was actually getting and ringing around everyone who'd pre ordered one to see what packages they wanted.

Glad it's not just me then.

 

I have pre-ordered from HMV Oxford street, the apparent flagship store, and even they don't have any information yet. I preordered on the 6th of June, so getting this close to the launch and hearing nothing is rather worrying.

 

Couldnt organise a ***** up in a brewery that lot....

I don't understand why anyone would pre order with a shop teetering on the edge of ruin on a daily basis.

Most hmv's I used to use are empty and have been most of 2013.

If hmv go bust you won't get one for a while now.
Worse than that you might lose money for it.
I'd rather wait until Friday, even Saturday knowing I will get one and not lose money.

The chances of them going bust in the next two weeks is very, very slim. Sure it'll be fine.

 

Anyway - back on topic - has anybody been contacted today?

Hi guys,


Im currently temping at HMV. Basically....there is no guarentee on anything! They dont know how many theyre being allocated. They have said, however, that if you ordered one before the 6th of August then you MIGHT get one at launch day.

 

Thanks.

Emailed HMV head office about preorder and because i have lost my receipt for deposit and this was my response:

Thank you for your e-mail below,

Please be advised that if your pre-order was in fact placed before the cut off date of 6th August. You will in fact receive your console on launch day.

We would strongly advise that you go into the store to confirm your pre order details as you have misplaced your transaction receipt. Alternatively go into store with your I.D to make your purchase on launch day.

Our games team are currently working on the packages available for launch this information is not yet available however once this has been confirmed with Sony and our buying team all hmv Stores will be informed. At present there are no concrete plans for a midnight launch all these details will be confirmed nearer to the due date of the console release.

Thank you for contacting hmv.

Nice work for emailing head office. Seems like a positive response, even if HMV do seem to be driving by the seat of their pants!
