I want to begin by asking your opinion on what matter of actions I should take.
Once the Zelda: Windwaker HD was announced I immediately went in to preorder. I am a Zelda junkie and always do so. I own the custom 3DS, Skyward Sword Bundle and DSLite and actually use them pretty hardcore. The day that Gamestop announced the limited edition Windwaker, I immediately went to upgrade my regular version. Which was the same as a regular WiiU game at $60. I didnt want the Custom WiiU because it didnt seem too much worth it for the same system I already have. So I preordered the limited edition game and the waiting had started. I went and paid it all off two weeks ago when I had all the funds and all i had to do was pick it up on the 4th of October. Incidentally enough I wasnt in the area of gamestop yesterday the 4th and was out all day with work from 8 to 5 and school from 6 to 10. I had to wait until the 5th to actually get it. Worried though I called on the 4th and asked them what the holding policy on preoder games were. They said all stores are universal and hold games for 48 hours. He even went as far as to tell me he was looking at my copy now and said it will be here tomorrow when I decide to come in and pick it up.
So today I go in to get it and they cant find it. a half hour passes and they are still looking for it. Finally they look up in the transactions and yes indeed they sold it. THEY SOLD MY F@#&ING COPY OF A LIMITED EDITION PREORDER THAT I SPECIFICALLY CALLED THE DAY BEFORE TO ASSURE I WOULD'NT FORFEIT THE COPY.
I am beyond livid. I cancelled all my other prorders for Pokemon X, Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, and COD: Ghosts. He said there are only three stores in America with an extra copy that hasn't been picked up yet. He has to wait for the end of tonight before he can try to get it mailed to them. But he said it isn't looking good. He gave me the customer service number and their store number. I really don't know what coarse of action to do.
I dont know if this belongs in this section or not, but i would just really like someones output on what steps I should take on this measure. I don't imagine this is a normal situation with a limited edition game, maybe running out of a regular version. But it should never be allowed to happen for a limited edition. IE a limited edition that sold out in two days. Anyway please let me know your opinions on my horrible misfortune.
