Hm really excited to get portal 2 for pc. I preordered it but now my order status says backorderd. i was wonder what that meant, because when i went back to check the product on bestbuy.com it didn't show any problems with ordering it now. So im a little confused as in whether or not ill get in on time or will it be late, anybody that has had this happen please share your experience?

I am with you on this and think it's absolutely despicable. I pre-ordered the game from Best Buy because I had a gift card (since Amazon has guaranteed release day delivery). I then received an email saying that the item was shipped:
We have processed the item below and it is ready to leave our warehouse. Your method of payment has been charged. If you used a Reward Certificate, it has been applied to your purchase. For more information or questions about your account go to myrewardzone.bestbuy.com. If there are additional items in your order that are not listed below, you will receive a separate email with the status of those items.
Then another email 14 hours later saying the item is backordered. How can a shipped item be backordered and how can Best Buy not know how many of the games they have until the next day after the game was released?
These are terrible business practices and contribute directly to your bad reputation among consumers. The name of your company is the very definition of irony and I am yet again disappointed after buying (or attempting to buy) from "Best Buy".

I have had a similar experience with a movie I pre-ordered. Got the shipping notice it was shipped on 4/11 (movie didn't release until 4/15). On 4/15 I get the "official" notice it has shipped. at 8:59 am it was at the USPS an hour south of my house. I still don't have the movie.

Thanks for posting.
I apologize that you still have not received your copy of Portal 2 you pre-ordered from Bestbuy.com®. I am showing your copy was “released” today, so it should ship from our warehouse by the end of business day tomorrow.
I will let you know if there are any other updates. I appreciate all your patience.

I am showing that your order is also in “released” status as well. It should ship out from our warehouse within the next 24-48 hours. I apologize for the wait; I know how frustrating this has been for you. Also, I just sent you a private message with some additional details.
