Rage 2 "midnight release" pickup

My Best Buy store would let me pick up my preordered copy of Rage 2 at 8:00pm like the event said, but wouldn't let me leave with it until 9:00pm. I cancelled my copy of Rage 2, as well as every other pre-order I have through Best Buy. Way to treat a valued My Best Buy Elite Plus Member.

Wow I don't know how to respond to that without being insulting.

 

It does say I believe in the details you cannot leave until 9.

 

This is not something that Best Buy wants it is something imposed on them by the software distributor.

 

Because it is not fair if someone has that precious 37.1 minute advantage in playing the game.

I would like to see these details you mention. On the events sections it mentions you can pick it up at 8:00pm, but there is no mention on 9:00pm anywhere. Please direct me in the appropriate direction.

And it's not about having an advantage of playing the game early for me. It's about wasting an hour of my time. I would not be disgruntled if the event started at 9:00pm, pick it up, leave, and enjoy. Instead, I get there at 8:00pm because that's when the event starts.

Show me where it says it starts at 8:00pm. It sounds like you got there early which is your own fault. Quit complaining.

The advertisement most definitely said 8pm release. When I went to pick mine up I was not able to at 8pm, but you could outright purchase it at the time. I had a pre-order with gift cards, etc, so I didn't want to mess with it. I won't be trying to pick up any games from Best Buy early again.

Re: Rage 2 "midnight release" pickup

Hello everyone,

 

I wanted to jump in here quick to just clarify the early opening for Rage 2 at our stores.

 

We did advertise that you could go in at 8pm and pick up a copy of Rage 2, regardless of whether you pre-ordered or not.  As this event was set for May 13, at 8pm, once it happened, the event was removed from BestBuy.com overnight.

 

For those of you who had poor experiences with this early release, please post the store location you visited, as we do want to know about it.  The stores are sent communications for each of these events outlining how to handle it and who to contact should they experience issues selling pre-orders, etc.

 

The whole point to the early openings is to create excitement for a game release and if you leave the store either disappointed or not able to pick up your game, that defeats the entire purpose.  My hope is that despite this setback, you’ll offer us the opportunity in the future to show that these early release events can be fun and easy.

 

Thanks,
