*Dead Deal, Walmart Not Honoring* Preorder Unreal II for $20.95 shipped!

Dead Deal, Walmart Not Honoring

Walmart.com

It's $17.97 for the game and $2.98 for the standard shipping. This price probably won't last long. Other shipping prices are $4.88 for priority and a silly $14.97 for 1 day.

They do honor their price mistakes. They honored Eternal Darkness for $30 back on its release date.

Of course, you will probably need a steroid enhanced video card to run this game, so the savings might not be that much.

Caught this at FW and was gonna post it here... the deal is not dead...

Here's how to do it.

Go to main Wal-Mart page and do a search for "Unreal" - it should be a few items down on the list - click the pre-order button that appears there. The pre-order button on the page for the game is gone.

What's the difference between unreal II - the awakening PC ($17.97) and unreal 2: Awakening, Collector's Edition ($49.97) other than the price? Are we getting the correct one here?

This is obviously a misprice - they confused the strategy guide with the game. Your out is that they placed it in the PC game section rather than the books section where their other strategy guides are. Simply print the main page out for the game if you ordered it so you can take it into the store for an exchange if they decide to ship you the strategy guide instead.

Just tried to order and this is the message I got:

You have an item in your cart that is temporarily out of stock. Please delete it from your cart by clicking "Delete," or move it to your Saved List by clicking "Save For Later."

It looks like this deal could now be dead.

At least we now know 100% that we're down for the game ... and here's why: If you go into your account, open up the order summary and click on the link, it takes you to the game now priced at $50.

The question remains as to wether they will balk or not, though.

Deal dead now, unless I'm blind. Too bad the site was down for a time, or I would have been in on this too.

Just got mine, too. They should change "Dear Valued Customer" to "Dear Unwanted Customer."

Oh well, it will cost them a lot of money in future lost purchases. It 'aint like I can't go to Target instead of Walmart.
