Sony and the their Playstation 4 console took a hit last week when they announced that Watch Dogs, a game bundled for pre-orders, was facing delays and would not make it to launch. PS4, Target, Gamestop, and Amazon now have an answer for those wondering what was to become of their orders.
Target said they would be canceling all PS4 bundle pre-orders and the console would go back for sale on a first come first serve basis on Oct. 25.
For the people who ordered on Amazon, the online giant had better news.
"For those of you who pre-order the Watch Dogs PlayStation 4 bundle - don't worry - you will still be getting your Playstation 4 (without Watch Dogs) based on your current delivery estimate," Amazon said. "We are adjusting the orders now and will update you once we know more."
The pre-order price will drop from $459 to $399 to compensate for the lose of the game, according to the LA Times.
GameStop told Polygon that they would be personally contacting gamers who bought the pre-order to inform them of the delay and give them options for what they can do.
"Customers can elect to keep their current bundle orders and their consoles will ship as scheduled with the game shipping separately once it is available, or customers can choose another bundle to replace their current order. Customers should also note that there may be a difference in the price if selecting another bundle and that all reserved orders will be charged upon shipment," said GameStop in their statement.
Another Sony launch title, DriveClub, will also be pushed back to next year.
The PlayStation 4 is set to release on Nov. 15 in the U.S. and on Nov. 29 in the U.K.
