According to a post on Reddit even more Destiny pre-orders are being cancelled due to the high demand and low supply. Before we reported that Wal-Mart was cancelling a few pre-orders for the highly sought after Destiny Ghost Edition. Today Best Buy has informed a few customers that their order for the smaller, less rare Destiny Limited Edition would be cancelled.
This round of canceled orders seems to be affecting more people than the original Wal-Mart one. Multiple responses on the original thread are from other customers that received the same email. This is likely due to the issue being with the less rare, but still sold out Limited Edition of the game.
Best Buy’s response to the cancellations has been very different from Wal-Mart who simply asked customers to purchase the Destiny Limited Edition instead. In the email informing customers of the issue Best Buy is offering a $50 credit toward other versions of Destiny. The only two versions left in stock of course are the standard edition and the Destiny Digital Guardian Edition. While missing out on the Limited Edition is pretty painful, a $50 credit for the other versions is significant savings. Many users are reporting that the credit will also work for other products offered by Best Buy, including Playstation Store gift cards.
Both Xbox One and PS4 orders of the Destiny Limited Edition So far there doesn’t seem to be any pattern to determine which version was hardest hit. In fact one user named Twohothardware claimed to have pre-ordered a Limited Edition copy both for PS4 and Xbox One and had both of his orders cancelled. However, the last-gen versions seem to be unaffected at this time even to the point where they can still be purchased.
Activision had commented on the previous round of cancelled orders by saying “We made as many as we could, and in collaboration with Bungie, we always wanted it to remain truly limited. ” It seems that both physical special editions of Destiny ended up being “truly limited”.
Destiny will be released on September 9th for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One
