Better Availability of Collectors Edition Video Games

Status: Tell Us More

I went to pre-order the Borderlands: Handsome Jack Collectors edition and was sold out.  can notifications be sent out in the future for customers that subscribe to a specific game or product?  i think this may reduce the amount of unhappy customers who weren't able to pre-order that particular product.  is there any chance as well to boost availability to elite plus members or an early pre-order event??  hope other elite plus members chime in on this idea!

Agreed, it`s been asked before several times and shot down. With the added cost of GCU this should be a premier perk of the program. Advanced ordering/availability but the publishers lack of stock may also prevent some of this too. BestBuy should use GCU to be the exclusive carrier of some of the real good LE/CE`s that way they get all of the stock vs a portion.

One problem with an idea like this, if you think a collector's edition sold out fast if they selected these emails as well then ... guess what chances are they are just going to know about ie even faster if they didn't already. ( which is generally what happens is that they have a listing of upcoming games etc and go from there )

I suggested a GCU alert service two years ago. Not just for when a special edition is available for purchase but when it's announced. I've missed a couple of collector's editions because I missed the announcement that one would be available. I use Google Alerts now, but I still have to know about the game before I can create a new alert.  GCU members should be able to sign up for specific alerts, of which collector's edition games would be one of several types of alerts, and when a special edition of a game is announced at least we would have a heads up.
