Has anyone else had their pre-order for MH3 Ultimate cancelled by Zavvi?|
I placed a pre-order for it on 22nd of November, finding that the "secret" code I had been sent was for 15% off and usable on it, knowing that their release date of 30th of November was incorrect and that it was due around March. I then received an e-mail on Monday night saying that, as their supplier could not source the game at all, they were cancelling my order; finding this to be rather bizarre, I decided to contact them:

Why have you cancelled this order? It's not due for release until March 2013, whilst you seem to mistakenly believe that it's no longer available; the opposite is true, it's not even been released yet. Please reinstate this order as it was.Sent by: zavvi. 05 December 2012, 14:48
Thanks for getting in touch to ask for an update on your recent order.(This was pretty much a repeat of what was in the cancellation e-mail.)

Can someone with a brain actually read my previous message, please? Your suppliers are unable to provide you with Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate because it hasn't been released yet, it is a PRE-ORDER! You haven't failed to deliver it to me because I am not expecting it until around March 2013, it's only your own website that has had it down for release on the 30th of November.Sent by: zavvi. 07 December 2012, 15:20
Thanks for getting in touch. Firstly, may I apologise that my colleague did not fully read or understand your initial email message. I have checked into this for you and unfortunately your order has been cancelled. This is because, as you rightly stated, the release date has been delayed until aroud March and so it was decided to temporarily take the item off sale from our website as we are as yet unsure whether this date will then be definite or liable to change once again. I am sorry we have had to cancel your item and could not keep it registered as a pre-order on our system. I hope you keep checking our site nearer to the time and decide to pre-order then.Sent by: You. 07 December 2012, 17:12
I'm sorry, but that's just complete rubbish. I've got another pre-order which I placed on the 22nd of JULY for a game which is coming out on 25th of JANUARY; when that order is processed, it will have been SIX months, yet you're telling me that you can't maintain a pre-order in your system until March? Unless your database is straining at its seams and about to explode, because of all the items you keep adding to it, your argument is completely ludicrous and without merit.I'm now hoping that they don't go and cancel my pre-order for Ni No Kuni, just to spite me.
So, has anyone still got their MH3 Ultimate pre-order active, so that I can use that as ammunition for the ongoing discussion?

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate - Zavvi playing silly suggers with order
They're a right bunch of suggers/ruggers/tuggers/muggers/buggers

Mate, following my experiences with my Wii U pre-order, I'd recommend NEVER pre-ordering anything from The Hut, Zavvi, IWOOT or any other shit-muncher from The Hut Group.
My Wii U is *STILL* in 'Awaiting Stock Pick' hell. Apparently I can't cancel it as it's being prepared for dispatch - which they told me on Tuesday! So here I am a week after launch with no Wii U, with an order that's not even been dispatched and that I can't frikkin' cancel! Surely this is illegal?

Thanks for getting in touch about your order.
I can confirm the reason the item was cancelled is that it is not currently available for pre-order on our website. Sorry for the inconvenience.
If there's anything else we can do please don't hesitate to get in touch and a member of our team will be happy to help.
