Gamers, they be angry, as Harvey Norman has failed to fulfil all of its orders from the almost too good to be true 50 percent off gaming sale it held a month ago.
There are numerous reports of consumers still awaiting their games and even worse things to be said about experiences dealing with customer service, according to Whirlpool. While many people have received their games, a disturbing number haven't in the 31 page (and counting) thread.
Many orders placed a month ago are yet to even be dispatched, as Harvey Norman has failed to source more stock from its suppliers for games it has already sold.
One reader told Lifehacker, that after receiving payment confirmation on March 28, he is still waiting.
On the 29th, he was told there would be a five day delay and was forced to make contact with customer service when that timeframe well and truly passed. On April 15, he was told it would ship that week, which didn't happen, and only now has he learnt that Harvey Norman still don't have the game -- which he has paid for -- in stock, and haven't for the past month.
It follows the Dick Smith sale debacle, which achieved little besides angering gaming consumers, but at least Dick didn't take money for stock he didn't have.
Maybe it's all one big lesson. If an Australian online sale sounds too good to be true, it is.
