    preordered Warhammer Online at gamestop. What a dumb idea THAT was. ;)

    That was two weeks ago. I still haven't received my beta code and I call every couple days. Last week they said "we're getting a shipment in the next couple days". I called yesterday and they said no such shipment ever existed.

    So now I am curious on what should I do if I want in the open beta. I could preorder from amazon and get a code that way, but then I have to cancel my gamestop one b/c I'll get the box from amazon and I dont' want too.

    What should I do?

    www.direct2drive.com

    Got my code 4 mins after purchase. And it's download only so no box in the mail.

    Is it worth canceling my amazon preorder?

    Target has them. For 99 cents.

    I pre-ordered from gamestop though (I learned about the Target thing a little too late) and they didn't have any in.. so I made them call up another store and get the code from them.

    I'd tell you what I would do but that would be going against me being inherently selfish ;)

    HMV have also completely buggered up the WAR pre-orders in the UK. Not terribly happy.

    If Gamestop has let you down and you can get the game code from someplace else faster, seems like an easy decision. Cancel Gamestop.
