DEAD--ACTUALLY NEVER EXISTED--PRICE MISTAKE AND ALL ORDERS CANCELED

Good news everyone!

#1 in sales LOLz

"You have received an Online Gift Certificate in the amount of $5.00 from
orders@gamestop.com." I smell cancellation...


The above is correct. I received the $5 certificate from Barnes&NobleOnlineCertificates@book.com on 2/11/2010 and my order was canceled on 2/17/2010.


Update as of 2/17/2010. All orders are being canceled. Deal was just too good to be true but we knew that going into it. E-mail from B&N below:


Dear xxxxxxxxx,

Despite our efforts, we were unable to fulfill some or all of the items in your order, as noted below. Your order contained a title(s) that is no longer scheduled for release. This may be because the item was discontinued or replaced by a newer version.

We have canceled this portion of your order and you will not be billed for it.


We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and look forward to your next visit to Barnes & Noble.

Sincerely,

-- Barnes & Noble

HaHaAtSimon 02-08-2010 03:59 PM

at this price, i think its a slickdeal like no other.
i ordered my bfbc2 on amazon for 40 dollars (from the mw2 -20 off next game order) shipped receiving it the day when it comes out.

Jimcarrey363 02-08-2010 04:04 PM

"Available for Pre-Order from GameStop
This item will be available on March 2."

If GameStop has a hand in this... considered this a canceled order for price mistake.

However... I am pre-ordering one right now anyway. What the heck ;)

WTH??? The game is more enjoyable to play on the PC but those of us who haven't kept up with the latest PC components and just play on our PS3 have to pay $57!!!!!!!!

Those on ebay for $28 is from india that is why they are so cheap and it takes 2-3 weeks to receive as well.

atticus14 02-08-2010 04:33 PM

nice, I only had passing interest in this game solely because i have so many to catch up on - but at this price i'll add another one to the list

here's hoping it goes through

jrussmlr 02-08-2010 04:36 PM

Sweet I just got one. Hopefully they honor this. Had a giftcard too and ended up paying 7 bucks on the CC :)

GwarRiff 02-08-2010 04:37 PM

Relax. It's clearly a pricing error which they may or may not honor. The PC version is supposed to be $50.

bigasiannd 02-08-2010 04:49 PM

This isn't like a $20 preorder fee and then you have to pay the rest in full later?

No one else is selling that UPC code that B&N has on their site for this 'regular' edition (not the limited edition). What gives?

Worth a shot. Used "bing" and payed via Paypal.

That's true but if you ever bought the first bad company game all the first print or initial release of the game were limited edition. You can look on amazon, there isn't a standard edition. All pre-orders are for the limited edition bad company 2. I'm pretty certain this is for the guide and they screwed up on the description.

ViperVenom 02-08-2010 05:06 PM

In 4 one. Im still addicted to BF2. :lol:

Will Steam let you cancel a pre-order? I know they laugh at refunds for crappy games. This is one game I would prefer with my PC friends and I thought it looked better on a decent PC over the 360 graphics.

Though the order has to go through first, *crosses fingers*.

If it wasn't posted before, ordering a game from Barnesandnoble.com really just means barnesandnoble takes your money and then Gamestop ships it. I've preordered from them before.

I think this deal is seeing some action. The product details page says "Sales Rank: 11"!

Cheez01 02-08-2010 05:32 PM

The reason that a lot of places aren't selling the standard edition is because the limited edition is basically the preorder "bonus". Iinstead of recieving a $10 gift card or something, you get the limited edition for the standard price. At least, that's the case with Amazon and I'm sure others are doing the same.

It wouldn't make sense to have both the limited and standard editions selling for the same price at once. I'm sure that after the game releases, you'll see the limited edition go up in price and the standard edition being sold for the normal price. At least, that's my thoughts. I could be totally wrong.

I'm on the fence about this one, I was going to order the PS3 version on Amazon (as well as Heavy Rain) with gift cards, but $20 is too good to pass up... I hope everyone who orders get it! :P

Thaff 02-08-2010 05:32 PM

I agree it looks like a mistake, but it's too good to pass up the attempt. TY OP

(I played the beta on PS3 a few months ago and now the demo, this game is much more fun to play that MW2, imo)

There's both single and multiplayer. It doesn't cost extra to play the multiplayer portion.

A search here [upcdatabase.com] says its a dummy UPC. This is probably because the game hasn't been released yet.

eau 02-08-2010 05:59 PM

There is only one PC version (limited edition) released by EA and the UPC is 014633190366.

This one sold by BN is either a mistake or something else.

aznguyen316 02-08-2010 06:00 PM

awesome, thanks OP! Don't have my PC yet, but will test via beta and if doesn't work out, then I'll just resell it =)

On March 2nd there will be a normal version available. This could be the placeholder for it.

PC beta is crap. Canceled my order through steam after playing it. Hoping for a final demo when its released.

XSNiper 02-08-2010 06:13 PM

I think the Beta is fantastic. Weird. I wish people would go into depth about their opinion. For all I know your system could be crap and you can't play the game so you label the game as crap.

No it ran very smooth all graphics cranked. It's worse game play than BF2, but better graphics. Maybe, just maybe, the final release will be much better.

I had to lower my gfx settings from medium to low res at 1920x1200 on my Nvidia 260, but play is silky smooth. I think the gfx are not optimized very well yet so people are thinking they should be on Medium or high and getting terrible game play.


So if you are in or have tried the beta, lower your overall settings to low and see if it helps.

Then you should buy a few copies, so when your keys get banned.:P

SuperStingy 02-08-2010 06:22 PM

well for $20 I'd buy the game, but I can't say at the moment with the beta it isn't worth the $40+. I really liked battlefield 2, but this doesn't feel like it at all for those who are curious how it resembles another game. I'd almost say this game is trying to be a bit like modern warfare, but not as well executed. Just don't expect it to play as 2142 or battlefield 2 because it doesn't feel the same at all. Feels a bit worse to me, but maybe I just need to adjust.

And this is my 666th post!

XSNiper 02-08-2010 06:22 PM

I must be out of the loop or something because I think the game play is awesome. I have much more fun in BC2 then Cod4 or BF2. It feels like your actually in a warzone in this game. With all the crap going on around you, buildings crumbling, etc. I never really got that feeling of immersive-ness in Cod4 or BF2. In fact, I wish I never bought either game because I've only ever played them a couple times at a LAN party. They just didn't "click" for me I guess...

Maps are too small to have that true BF2 feel.

Hmm, doesn't look like Bing CB is applied.

Am I the only one who hasn't played the beta for this? :(

I'm a big, long time Battlefield fan, since the 1942. Can't wait to see how this one plays... :D

If this deal stays for a couple of days, this might be the best-selling game of all time, thanks to SlickDeals! :lol:

The BETA runs decent on my 8600GT, it's definitely playable with all the textures set to low. I'm still holding out for lower prices on a 5850 video card ;-)

qwertyaas 02-08-2010 06:26 PM

Bing says 10% CB and free shipping. Anyone got that to work (atleast the free shipping portion or it won't show up yet)?

Points aren't hard to come by as you go further in the game and unlock the better weapons and special upgrades. The first few lvls are the hardest because your stuck with the crappy weapons while other people have better weapons and you usually die in 1v1 head on gunfights. I'm lvl 8 after 2 weeks of gameplay and I don't know how many pts that is but I think you max out at 11 in the beta.

SD should really make a point somewhere that calling is pointless and frowned upon.

Personally I think it should be ban worthy, but then people would just call and not post about it or something...

That's not the point. If no one calls and calls attention to the mistake, then theres a small chance a few of the orders will fall through the cracks. When you call, you RUIN it for EVERYONE. It's a pretty douche move and calls for you to get your intelligence checked.

This game runs fine on my system with everything turned up 4xAA Q9550 @ 3.6GHz/5870. I like this much better than CoD4. Sure it's not true Battlefield as the maps are small but it's the next best thing to hold us over until Battlefield 3 comes out later this year or early next year.
