Amazon, Gamestop and UK retailer Game have all announced that they will still deliver PS4 and Xbox One’s on launch day to those who ordered the Watch Dogs Bundle. As you may recall, Watch Dogs was delayed yesterday, and Ubisoft dodged the question about next-gen console bundles.
Amazon wrote the following on their Facebook page “For those of you who pre-order the Watch Dogs PlayStation 4 bundle—don’t worry—you will still be getting your Playstation 4 (without Watch Dogs) based on your current delivery estimate. We are adjusting the orders now and will update you once we know more.” You may also be able to change your bundle to another title like Killzone or Drive Club if you talk with an amazon rep.
Gamestop is offering different options to gamers who have been effected by the delay, explaining their plan in an email, transcribed by pixelenemy.com “With the news that Ubisoft has delayed the release of the highly-anticipated title Watch Dogs until next year, GameStop is contacting customers who had reserved PlayStation 4 and Xbox One bundles featuring the game. Customers can elect to keep their current bundle orders and their consoles will ship as scheduled with the game shipping separately once it is available or customers can choose another bundle to replace their current order. Customers should also note that there may be a difference in the price if selecting another bundle and that all reserved orders will be charged upon shipment.”
UK retailer game seems like it will follow Gamestop’s lead, tweeting “Watch_Dogs PS4 Console Bundle: Your PS4 remains secure for launch. We will be in touch with you all shortly to arrange an alternative” So it looks like if you pre-ordered from these reputible retailers you will still get your next-gen console on launch day.
