Neither Best Buy nor EB have Control in stock, what a shitshow of a rollout.

Looks like it's in stock.

No, in stores.
I wanted to pick one up today, no stores around me had it.

Ugh those are such good prices, but I don’t want to split my collection between multiple platforms. Gotta stick with my Apple TV

Do you have a link by any chance? I'm having way too much trouble with the cumbersome Microsoft store.

How do you play those movies? Do they have an app on Apple tv?

There's a few sales going on, but this is a link to the largest sale, otherwise just search the title.

Nah, that's the shitty part of Microsoft movies, maybe they'll get an app when game streaming starts, but for now I think the only way to play the movies in 4K/HDR is a Xbox (S or X will play 4K media).

As expected, no shipping details from Amazon for my Astral Chain copy yet.
edit: Nevermind, I should expect it on Wednesday :(

Me as well. People need to be signed up for UPS Mychoice in order to receive these notifications. Just in case people are wondering why they didn’t get there’s.
MyChoice saved my bacon a few years ago after I sent my Nexus 6p to get the battery replaced. Service depot had it for weeks saying they were "waiting on a part" and then suddenly shipped the fixed phone back with no notification. Only way I knew to go pick it up was because of MyChoice emailing me.

Does anyone know what EBGAMES does when trading a console that has been opened, specifically the PS4 pro? Do they care that the warranty stickers have been taken off?

Received a shipping notification email from Wal-Mart for Astral Chain.
Just noticed in the email my billing address has the wrong city and province, but on the site it's right. Why you gotta be so odd Wal-Mart?

I’ve traded in alot of consoles over the years. The 360 and Switch they turned on to check if it worked. Everything else including ps4 they did a quick look and checked if the serial number was intact.

So WM just shipped my Astral Chain even though I no longer have that Credit Card or any banking with RBC, should I be worried about this secretly building up fees somewhere or screwing my Credit Rating?

If it didn't exist they couldn't charge which means they wouldn't have shipped. You best check with the bank again because that so means it's still there.

I thought this happened to other people with Walmart. Never happened to me before because I only have changed banks/credit cards once in my life last month. I guess I can phone RBC tomorrow.

Ordered too much stuff from WM.

Two copies of Astral Chains are on the way! I will gladly return one at store.

Apparently my copy of the Japanese LE of Astral Chain is on the way from Amazon Japan. I got a text yesterday from DHL about it, I completely forgot. Haha.

Amazon has totally been shitting the bed for me recently. I'm not the type who needs a game day 1, but like a week later for shit is...infuriating, just because I know they're fucking around.

It's super annoying to get on there and see a date for Astral Chain that's like the 6th or whatever, when I can go order a copy this second and get it by Sunday at the latest. I just don't get what the fuck is going on?

I'm in the same boat. I have a feeling it's going to be like this for every discounted pre-order going forward from them, because they seem content to dick around with the order hoping you'll cancel it, I suspect.

Yeah, I only ever have the issue with discounted preorders. It's funny, because they bend over backwards to help in every instance and are quick to offer some form of compensation if they can't, but whenever it's about discounted preorders arriving late they do nothing and offer nothing.

Dead Cells is only $10.99 on iOS ($26 on Switch) and with controller support for xbox ps4 coming really soon to apple devices I’m gonna have to start looking more closely at mobile releases for indies.
