Simplygames :(

So i have just lost my release day guaranteed ps4 order because simplygames sent me an email to change my preorder to one of sonys apparnt bundles, not one is the same as any of the sony bundles and the prices are ridiculous, i could no longer order just the console at regular price so was forced to cancel :(

 

The worst part of this is there are some folk who will choose 1 just to make sure they get a console on launch, this is a poor show from a company i previously held in high regards.

 

Awful bundles link

That sucks dude. This is why I just stick to high street stores. Too complicated to order online with preorders.

I called them immediately to confirm it as i honestly thought they atleast got the prices wrong and they confirmed they were actually correct, after i told them the prices were ludicrous i was told all i could do was choose one of those bundles or cancel.

Will never order a single thing from them again.

I'm so glad I stuck with GAME.

I believe in supporting the high street shops where I can anyway, even though I know it's always more expensive, but it makes things a lot less complicated.

Go and preorder a console at a supermarket or GAME or somewhere of your choice straight away. Preorder in store somewhere so you don't have the same problem again.

You won't get the bundles though until phase 2 :(

I feel so bad for you. If I was in your situation I would cry.

After that experience that has just left a sour taste so think im gonna just wait it out until i can actually just walk into a shop and buy one at regular price off the shelf (could be a long time away i know lol).

 

Cant believe i just sold my gaming PC to fund it aswell :(

 

Should have known from the fact they werent taking any deposits that something wasnt right, if it wasnt for the lack of making any sort of pre-payments im 100% sure they could have been reported and brought to justice for this sort of profiteering scam.

I am in the same stituation - I do not think the price is overly expensive because there is now an extra controller but i didnt want this, is changing a pre order that had already been agreed even legal? This is a joke

I honestly took a moment to consider taking that cheapest bundle just to keep my day one preorder and make sure i got a PS4 on launch but i cant let myself pay money to a company who would do something like this to loyal customers and as a result cancelled all my ps4 game preorders at same time and will never buy another product from them.

 

Im pretty sure it would be illegal IF we had paid any sort of money towards it already (deposit) but as is i think they can get away with this crap.

 

 

@ si_ozzman thats exactly it, they were clever enough to keep the bundle choices etc on website and only a link in email or i would have copy pasted the bit were it says along the lines of 'you can no longer stay with your previous order of sony playstation console - £349.97'

Im still in absolute disgust and shock at the moment, before thisi recommended them to everybody i speak to about game purchases and always made my game preorders with them. Never again!!!

 

 

@ Kermit1970 that is a good deal, i actually thought games £399 one game bundles were shocking untill this happened and now they are looking like a bargain lol

 

I actually got excited when i got the bundles email cause i thought i would be able to get that killzone mega bundle, then i clicked the link and all joy drained right out of me.

 

EDIT: I would like to hear from someone who had an early preorder with them (pre-august 6th) to see if their stiffing everyone like this or if its just the people who were late in the game but were still guaranteed a day one console from them, my preorder was only made on september 13th but this is still wrong in my eyes.

£414 for just an extra controller is an absolute joke. I was going to pre order with them when they showed the price as £325 or was it £329, but when they started taking pre orders they bumped it up to £349 so I was like screw you. Shocked that they would pull this stunt. This is a new low for SimplyGames.

It's absolutely appauling and i really feel for you as i believe they have screwed you over a lot worse than me being that you ordered way back then and i only ordered in september.

 

May i ask how much your order was supposed to be costing you for the standalone console? i ask cause at one point im sure they had it priced even cheaper than the SRP and going from that low of a price to minimum £415 is just attrocious.

Ok I know you might not want it but for £450 Game are doing the KZ Big bundle which includes and extra controller, camera, and Killzone Shadowfall.

 

If I hadn't already ordered KZ:SF I know which bundle I would prefer.

I have to say this is utterly sucktastic, and if they are forcing customers to go with one of 'their' bundles after advertsing the standalone pre-order I happen to think that is illegal. It's changing the contract after the sale of goods has been agreed.
