Crysis 2 Nano Edition Delayed

I wasn’t surprised when I saw an email from EA in my inbox this morning, Crysis 2 was due to ship today and I ordered the Nano Edition from the online store. Unfortunately I discovered that rather than a shipping confirmation it was a notification that the game had been delayed due to manufacturing issues.

Thank you for purchasing the Crysis 2 Nano Edition.  Unfortunately, manufacturing issues have caused a delay in delivery on this item.  We do expect your copy of the Crysis 2 Nano Edition to ship soon, and will notify you once it has shipped.

We understand the impact this has on you, and to help compensate for the inconvenience we are providing you with a coupon good for 75% off your next purchase* at the EA STORE (http://eastore.ea.com): *********

Thank you for your patience.  If you have any questions, you can contact our Customer Service department at http://support.ea.com.

*Coupon expires May 31, 2011. Discount is valid on one copy of one product from the EA STORE at www.eastore.ea.com only.  Value of discount will be deducted from product list price at time of purchase. Valid only in U.S.  and Canada.  Cannot be combined with any other offer, Gift Card, rebate or other discount coupons. Limit one offer per person. Subject to availability. Customers are responsible for shipping, handling and applicable sales tax. Offer may not be substituted, exchanged, sold or redeemed for cash or other goods or services. Void where prohibited, taxed or restricted by law.

No word yet as to how long the delay is, though I would suspect it would be short considering they waited until the 11th hour to let people know (which I assume means they thought they might make it in time). Either way the offered 75% off  from the EA store is a HUGE discount which, at least in my opinion, makes a good mea culpa.

    I changed my email address on my EA account since ordering but did not receive this notification. Guess I'll need to contact customer support.

    Well here in the UK I got a confirmation from GAME, that's it's being shipped out.

  3. lhurgoyf:
    First with shipping delay... now after watching the unboxing vid I really hope mine doesn't show up with the box as trashed as theirs :/

  4. Knoell:
    I got the same e-mail, 75% off isn't bad compensation so long as they are still sending me the game.

    Ditto. I just saw the confirmation in my eMail inbox that the game is being picked & packed.

    I am guessing that maybe this is either a US issue, or EA are just blagging it by saying there's a manufacturing problem - I would guess that GAME have most likely had this in storage in their warehouse for some weeks


    I just hope that this really is as limited as rumoured, as I don't want to feel ripped off again as I was with the Killzone 3: Helghast Edition... I don't want to be seeing this for sale again in a couple weeks time for a significantly lower price, when i've had it pre-ordered for at least three months. This is so far the most expensive CE this year at £120, so I hope the contents are worth the extra cost, as I would be very disheartened if GAME suddenly slashed 40% off it within a few weeks of release

    i've got mine, seems in France they didn't got this problem.

    it's exclusive to Fnac here, but a little more expensive than Germany, normally the price of the games are the same, and it's 149 euros for all three plat forms

    No chance of that, the Nano edition is sold out.

    Is the Tax higher in France than Germany?

    Game are showing it as in stock and available for delivery this morning,I hope were not going to have another killzone helghast scenario again .Have ordered 2 nano editions they should be here this morning,I may send one back will see if it sells out in the next week or so

  9. Knoell:
    Twisted have you heard anything about yours yet? My e-mail is eerily silent, almost as if I don't have a preorder anymore. That would suck.

  10. gurpswoo1:
    WOW - The US still don't have the edition yet.

    I can't believe GAME have it in stock again, they were sold out, what happen.

    I hope you have a spare garage or two to store these! I don't think people realise just how big the Nano Edition is, especially considering its ironic name

    I received my Nano Edition yesterday, but it was damaged so have to send it back for a replacement. Looks like the courier has dropped it on one corner due to its size & weight. Very disappointed, as this is one CE I really don't want to send back! Waiting for GAME customer services to get back to me regarding returning it, as it's too big to take down the Post Office

  12. lhurgoyf:
    Another delay!!! This time they gave a code to download Crysis 2 LE for free... would prefer my nano edition though.

  13. Twistedsymphony:
    Mine arrived today... and it's MASSIVE

  14. Knoell:
    Mine should be here tomorrow. I was just getting a hold of customer service when I noticed they deducted the money out of my bank account. Now if UPS would come at the time they say, I will have mine as well.

  15. scourdx:
    What the heck mine hasn't arrive yet. I should email EA and ask them what is going on.

  16. gurpswoo1:
    I hadn't realised it had been delayed so much, have you not received the dispatch notification yet.

  17. scourdx:
    Got an email from them.

    Quote:
    We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.In order to assist you with this issue I would like to inform you that we have forwarded your request to the concerned department, where in your order would be processed manually by the ware-house. The game should be shipped either by today or tomorrow. You would then receive a tracking code from UPS (incase of US customer) / Purolator (in case of Canadian customer) through which you can track the status on your order.
    So it should be out this week.

  18. scourdx:
    So far no news from EA. They said they ship it and now I got no confirmation. I assume all the console version of Nano edition was shipped. For PC I guess I have to call them to ask for discount.

  19. gurpswoo1:
    ^ wow that blows Scourdx, everyone else seemed to have got theirs.

    Your right, demand a discount.
