Amazon Cancel GT5 Pre-Orders

An email going to Amazon customers that pre-ordered Gran Turismo 5 when it was cheap confirms what we suspected, that the retailer won’t be honouring the pricing error.

“We are writing to inform you that the price for the item ‘Gran Turismo 5 (PS3)’ – ASIN: B002BWONDK was displayed incorrectly at the time you placed the above referenced order,” says the email.  “In our Pricing and Availability Policy we state that where an item’s correct price is higher than our stated price, we contact the customer before dispatching.”


The mass-email continues: “All affected orders have now been cancelled. If you still wish to purchase this item, please place a new order online as from tomorrow, which will be charged at the correct price, when we dispatch it to you.” Hardly surprising, it did appear to be a genuine error and the game is now available for pre-order for a penny under £40, which, we reckon, is still an absolute bargain for petrolheads.
