Why still pre-order for VCS?

Recommended Posts

Walmart cancelled my preorder of the Kevlar front some time ago

I ordered mine in September and they still haven't shipped it. Now I feel I won't get it any sooner than people ordering on the 15th. Atari will have had my money for 9 months and the new orders will have a free hat. Irritating.

I would contact them ASAP.  I just ordered one for my sister three weeks ago and it arrives at her doorstep tomorrow.  Sounds like they lost your order or it didn't go through somehow.

Was it black walnut? They say my order is valid but still in queue for shipping.

Yes.  I ordered the black walnut.  All the VCS orders are being fulfilled by Rush Order Inc. and they don't seem to be shipping in any particular order.  I am sure that yours will be shipping soon if it hasn't already.  This is the same issue the backers had with the Indiegogo campaign.  There is no rhyme or reason to their shipping order.

 

I also just checked and it was about 5 weeks since I ordered.

My pre-ordered Black Walnut came in and is for sale, for retail + shipping in the Marketplace.  PM me if you need one!   

 

The one i got off ebay is plenty, really enjoying it, but don't need two.  Cheers'

Finally got a tracking number for mine. It is irritating that you ordered yours in February and received it before my September order. I'll get over it once it is in my hands but for now I'll just sit here and be bitter.

I actually pre-ordered two (one in August and another in October...had planned for one to be a Christmas 2020 gift...so that's funny in retrospect). I received the All-In bundle for the October preorder on the 10th, but hadn't received any word on the August order. I ended up contacting support once they started sending out the "low stock" e-mails and they responded that they would be processing my order soon. That just arrived today. If you haven't received a pre-order, opening a ticket with support seems to be your best bet.

Does anybody know what are the estimated shipment times for newly placed orders? I.e. if one orders a VCS today, would it be available or is the order put in a waiting list?

That is the rumor.  I don't recall seeing anything official from Atari though.  It's a shame as I would have loved to get one of those "Carbon Gold" units.  I personally thought they were really cool looking.

I´ve ordered mine on June 26th and it was shipped to a friend in Salt Lake City about 1 1/2 weeks later.

Yesterday it came to Germany thanks to another friend from SL,UT. :) (Just love that abbreviation, I´ll never grow up, I guess)
