    Hi Guys & Gals

    This has been mentioned before but since Play have had a makeover of their customer account layout the pricing on pre-orders has changed.

    After checking earlier this week, all was well and pre-order prices matched the price on the rest of the site, now my pre-order prices have changed and are more expensive i.e BTTF R1 is now 36.99 instead of 27.99, Blade 2 15.99 instead of 14.99 & Monsters Inc 17.99 instead of 15.99. Just cancelled them & re-ordered.

    Worth having a look and doing the same if I were you. Bit miffed about this especially as BTTF was 27.99 last week as my pre-order price.:mad:

    Wonderful way to ensure your long term customer returns!:rolleyes:

    So the price actually changed in your "outstanding orders" section?? :eek:

    Sounds like a glitch in their new system. Hope you gave them a good telling off and made them aware of it!!

    the site price of my pre-ordered Reg 1 Blade 2 had gone down from £15.99 to £14.99 so I cancelled and reordered.

    Does anyone know if you 'go down the list' if you cancel and reorder a preorder, or what system they use for preorders

    My Blade 2 is at £14.99 so it looks like a glitch that may have been sorted out.

    They were trying to charge me £59.99 for Band of Brothers instead of £49.99 and a couple of other items were a few pounds over as well.

    Thanks for saving me some cash guys!!!

    I had a similar problem with DVD CONCEPT i pre ordered the LORD OF THE RINGS COLLECTOR'S GIFTSET for £34.99 only to find out 2 weeks later i was to be charged £49.99 instead even though later editions of total dvd/ dvd review still show £34.99 They told me that the price hike was due to spec changes & that they would not honor the price i was quoted when ordering so i cancelled all my orders with them over £150 in total.****ED OFF to say the least :mad:
