EB Games has informed some customers that they have had to cancel some Spider-Man Collector’s Editions due to overselling their allocation and not being able to secure any additional units. As we wrote on the day it went on sale, both EB Games and JB Hi-Fi took their preorders down quite quickly, with Australia getting limited allocations and the CE being incredibly popular.
It looks clear at this point that Australia probably won’t be getting a further allocation of Spider-Man Collector’s Editions which is sure to disappoint people come launch.
The Facebook response from EB Games reads:
I’m afraid, after in depth discussions with the vendor, we are able confirm that we are not able to obtain any further stock of the Collector’s Edition to fulfill every preorder.
The announcement of the edition blew away all expectations and we have now exhausted all potential avenues in the attempt to supply the preorders taken.
