XBOX Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition Pre-Order Cancelled After Site Listed PC Version as Available

Hi.

So, I pre-orded an XBOX version of the Power Armor Edition Fallout 76 title. I only have a PC, but I wanted the collectables.

Earlier today I saw the PC version had a "pre order" button instead of "coming soon" or "out of stock"

When I tried to buy the PC version, the order was cancelled as the item is "limited to one per customer"

So I cancelled my XBOX order.... only to find out the PC version is in fact out of stock, even though it has a pre-order button.

So... in this perfect storm of nonsense on the Best Buy website, I'd like to see if I can re-instate my original order for the XBOX version. Better to have the collectables than nothing at all. Frankly the number of glitches in the site that allowed this to happen is irritating.

Thanks for your time.

If you cancelled your order XBOX pre-order, you should be able to pre-order the Windows version. While Best Buy's website currently shows all flatorms as "Coming Soon", retailers such as Best Buy aren't sold out of their allotment. Clearly retailers are doing what they did for the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Editions and that is putting them up in waves rather than putting all of their stock up at once. I have personally noticed Best Buy at random times throughout both the day and the night open up pre-orders for the XBOX One, PS4, and PC versions of the game. Until you see them switch to "Sold Out" on the listing page it is safe to assume there are more copies that will be put up for pre-ordering. It just comes down to checking the site as often as you can. If you want the PC version, here is the directl link so bookmark it and check this often. I personally have noticed they seem to put copies up in the mid-afternoon or late at night pacific time, but that is just what "I" have noticed.

While this version will be limited, much like the Pip-Boy Edition was, I do recall retailers able to add more to their webites closer to the game's release. I am not sure if that will be the case for the Power Armor Edition but you never know. Good luck though, I am sure confident you will secure one. If its just some of the goodies inside, and you don't end up securing one, it would not surprise me if you find a few people opening their's up and re-selling the items inside on eBay that they don't really want. Some people will just want the Power Armor helmet, others may want the game in the steelbook case, others may want the toy figures, etc.

Re: XBOX Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition Pre-Order Cancelled After Site Listed PC Version as Avail...

Hi Woodsmit –

 

Welcome to the forums and thanks for your interest in pre-ordering the Power Armor Edition from us. Your post reminds me of the Master Chief Helmet Edition of Halo 3 I pre-ordered years ago, but I already told that story in another post yesterday and will spare everyone reading it again. What I’m trying to say is I definitely understand your disappointment here, and will be happy to advise you going forward.

 

This version of Fallout 76 is flying off the page whenever it’s available for pre-order, and once open, available allotment is being claimed quite quickly. This means that between the time you hit pre-order and get to through the checkout phase, remaining inventory may have already been claimed. Unfortunately, pre-orders that are canceled for any reason are not able to be reinstated, so retrieving your previous pre-order is not possible. That said, I wholeheartedly agree with @Kinsella5’s post, and mirror their advice. If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to post again.

 

Best Wishes,
