  • Please DO NOT rely on receiving an email or push notification alert to find you stock. We will send notifications on a case by case basis. It is pointless us sending thousands of notifications if a retailer only has a few units of stock which get snapped up almost immediately. Just leads to further frustration.
  • Please do not attempt to sell on this forum. There is another well known website for that. Offending posts will be deleted and user accounts suspended without notice.

Thanks, Admin

Ordered from GAME last Thursday, I haven't heard anything since (which I'm taking as a good thing as no cancellation email) has anyone else heard anything? The status on my game account is ''unshipped"
simon9732 simon9732 - Yesterday - 21/09/2017 18:36 - Report
I have heard. I ordered 2 and they email me to say it should of just been 1 allowed but on this occassion they will hnour the 2 that I ordered so seems I am in the clear.

have any of you who managed to bag a pre-order actually had the funds taken out of your account yet?....
Kurbgear Kurbgear - 14/09/2017 19:10 - Report
or am I missing something, do they take it when the item gets shipped out?

simon9732 simon9732 - 14/09/2017 19:22 - Report
they take a pound out for security and then the rest up to 7 days before disptch

okay, sweet. Cheers

guest273853 guest273853 - 14/09/2017 19:51 - Report
Not sure they actually take the pound out of your account though. Think it just gets authorised by your bank and held as a charge against your card (kind of like if you ever have had to put a damage deposit down at a car rental place). It just proves your bank account details are legit. Money is then taken by GAME when they dispatch (according to their website).

dkwright77 dkwright77 - 14/09/2017 20:28 - Report
It said on the website that they take funds 7 days before release date. I checked my bank account and they added £1.00 to validate the account and later take it back

dkwright77 dkwright77 - 14/09/2017 20:30 - Report
Is there still chance the Game will cancel these pre-orders despite these physical bank checks and email confirmation of pre-orders? I'm still not convinced. I wouldn't be surprised if I later get an email of apology saying they cannot commit to all orders. Just a hunch, what do you guys think?

Lucianoc Lucianoc - 15/09/2017 11:03 - Report
why do you think that? would be really bad news if they do that as we can't keep "pre-ordering" every time right? I'm hopping they will keep this pre-orders and dispatch them on the release day... fingers crossed!

dkwright77 dkwright77 - 15/09/2017 11:20 - Report
Read 'DaveJRyan's' that starts with "Managed to get one too..." scroll further down this forum to read his post. He didnt have the best experience with Game when they confirmed his NES purchase. I think he's taking these confirmation emails with a pinch of salt.

Lucianoc Lucianoc - 15/09/2017 16:40 - Report
Oh, I see... so what do you - or anyone else, think would be the best approach? Pre-order from a different place? Think this could be an option but I'm assuming they will charge without notice right? Then, we'll need to pay for like 3 or 4 units... It's so annoying this situation... =(

I'd give it a week. If you haven't had an email saying your order is cancelled then I reckon you're home and dry

Well i have bought one from Game and one from Smyths to ensure that i get one. If an order does get cancelled then at least i've got one. I'd be bloody unlucky for both to be cancelled. If i happen to get both, i'm keeping one for myself and I'll use the 2nd as a Christmas present

yes, I think this is the safest bet. trying to get another one too. no email cancelling so far. fingers crossed!

How nerve wracking is the ordering process when that foghorn alarm is going off through the whole thing?!? It's stressful enough as it is. Nintendo should take a long hard look at themselves, this happens time and time again with them. If it wasn't the fact they make such awesome stuff I might even be a bit cross with them...
chrisking66 chrisking66 - 14/09/2017 13:24 - Report
you mean some people cant take the 1 second to tab to the other window and shut of the alarm, or just use a keybored short cut to mute the speaks, interesting

Ouch Internal server Error. That is what it states on Games website now. Seems they are out of stock and by the looks of it they have probably over sold. Plus the amount of people going to the website has also caused ti to crash. So it was stating that it was in stock for over an hour, I highly doubt it.

This might be the 3rd wave of ore orders that were supposed to come in a while ago. They have probably been delayed. A lot of retailers havent had a 3rd wave.

Game announced the stock on twitter so assume they have had a load of stock.

Worrying indeed... Especially as it looks to be open to international delivery as well (thinking saw it as an option when I was flying through checkout). Just hope my order is early enough in the queue to count if that's the case! My confirmation came through at 12:30. I wonder how many are in front of me???....

simon9732 simon9732 - 14/09/2017 13:11 - Report
Not necessarily. Twitter is used these days and they know a lot of people want these. I wouldn't read to much in to that.

smoggiec smoggiec - 14/09/2017 13:12 - Report
They wouldn't announce it on twitter if they were going to sell out in 10 seconds like Smyths have been lately. Must have been a big pile of stock coming in to warrant advertising it. Hearing people are adding to basket and getting out of stock when trying to pay now.

more or less ya, a preorder is never an order until its in your hands, and more so now its been live just under an hour, a lot of people will miss out, being low on it i would say its 3 orders a second (and the person that said they take worldwide orders is right to) so thats 10800 units now *and as they open to worldwide opens 3 orders a second is truly low* i see lots of copy and paste new storys about game cancelling orders in the next few days to weeks

oh thats alright, us scalpers got many more Smile , and will still not be enough stock to go round, so will profit in the end (even tho the same amount in CC debt i now have of snes minis could of been worth alot more in other things for the profit margins, but oh well, its more done for boredom than profit) and will more than likely only sell the bulk of mine for £20 - £40 each at cex, or low vaule margins to people on gumtree, as i value my ebay 100% to much to sell there for a real profit margin, as buyers than feel ret**ded that they gave in and paid what they did and destroy your feed back, much much safer and easier ways to make a higher margin that can be done nearly every hour of every day

Yes some websites seem to take the listing off then put it back on again once it is back in stock. Argos, tesco and game did this last time with the nes mini and they are doing the exact same thing this time with the snes mini. This is because it is an extremely popular item with very limited supply. So its a common theme. This item is massively popular.

Basically every game is supplied a few preorders every week or two all you need to do is go in store and ask if they have any Mini SNES preorders available. It's a £50 deposit upfront and on release you have 48hrs before they just sell it in store even though the £50 is non refundable.
