    My order from Amazon US shipped yesterday, however I recieved a message from Amazon stated that "due to events beyond our control, your package may be delayed by 1 - 2 days. UPS will deliver the package as soon as possible. We're very sorry about this unavoidable delay and we appreciate your patience".

    Has anybody else recieved a similar message?

    UPS tracking states that "The package is delayed at the origin hub. / Forwarded to the facility in the destination city".

    I heard that Amazon screwed over the UK with their deliveries, just seeing if this is similar in any way.

    The only issue I've had with Amazon is that they are not able to deliver my copy of Samurai Warriors Chronicles... So I just canceled the order and ordered it elsewhere. Well... FINALLY it'll arrive here tomorrow. Been pissed enough already.

    Didn't know you could save that much. I'm still happy with 298 for the console. Looks like i'll have it before you and i'm too excited to wait any longer [​IMG]

    No problems here in the US, it's listed as being at the hub about 45 mins from here in the tracking data. So it should be here today sometime.

    I agree, ordering at Amazon was an awesome deal though, worth the slight wait. System + 4 games for $345. Since I didn't have to pay tax or shipping (free prime) I saved 90$.

    Well I didn't get a message from Amazon, but in the UPS order tracking it says delayed.

    edit: Just checked Amazon and it still says Delivery Estimate: March 30, 2011

    There are no shortages where I live. 3 stores had a dozen or more on Sunday when I went curiously looking. Still havent purchased as no good games are out yet, in my opinion.

    It's not about shortages though. Apparently there was something on UPS's side. My order arrived at UPS in Newark and then got delayed, a few hours later.

    The same happened to me. It got to Newark, DE yesterday and a few hours later: The package is delayed at the origin hub. It's been like that since. It may be something with the hub there, maybe the packages are moving and their tracking system is just fubared.

    I wrote to UPS regarding the Delayed at the origin hub...

    Here's their answer:

    Code:
    Thank you for your inquiry. Due to a temporary technical complication, some packages were unable to be processed in parts of our transportation network. The issue has since been resolved; however, a number of International (import and export) packages may experience a maximum transit time delay of one day.
    Yeah right... pure BS.

    On the other hand, I just got $45 worth of credit towards a 3DS game, and a free accessory! Free 3DS game, woohoo!

    You're in the US though. There probably is something going on at the airport, as Google is full with older reports about oversea flights being delayed/canceled due to suspicious packages or terrism stuff in Newark.

    Update: Just after I wrote this I got an email from UPS saying it's on it's way again. Actually it's been traveling again since yesterday evening and arrived in Germany this morning already [​IMG] I have no experience with UPS so far but it seems my 3DS could actually arrive this evening or tomorrow morning =)

    Edit: Or not... Seems like I misunderstood the Cologne Entry, because a few minutes later there's an entry from Philadelphia o.O
