Mine is in the trash dumpster. We can't order the supplies for it anymore, why keep it?

It had to be the special edition, didn't it? Not the ordinary one. If anyone's gonna get a cob on about less-than-perfect discs, it'll be the people buying the frickin' special edition.


Is anywhere selling the legendary edition (the one with the helmet)? We went through our allocation during the presales, and we never presold any. I nearly sold one, but when the customer found out how much it was, she didn't want it.

I dunno if I'd be so harsh to the company though. It's not like they didn't order enough copies for you, it's just that it was a 'limited edition' game designed for people who like to get rich of Ebay. Microsoft are simply not going to produce enough copies of that for everyone, or else nobody would rush out to buy it to feel special. Everyone whose ever worked at blockbuster for more than a few months knows that anything of a hard to get nature (launch consoles, rare copies of games, special edition consoles ect...) is going to be far from guaranteed with a pre-order. Best course of action when preselling them is to explain to the customer that they are entitled to the first copies we can get. Take just a 1 deposit but explain to the customer in advance that if you can't get the game/consdole before they purchase it somewhere else then the deposit will be refunded in full. It's a lot safer than allowing customers to assume (however wrongly) that they are actually ordering a copy of the game for the launch day.
