BREAKING NEWS: Amazon.co.uk have CANCELED 1400 pre-orders of STO: Gold edition!

We are writing to you regarding your order for Star Trek Online - Gold Edition (PC DVD).

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen supply issues, Amazon.co.uk has not received enough stock to fulfil all of our pre-orders for this title. For this reason, this item has been cancelled from your pre-order and you have not been charged for it.
So I gave them a call and this is indeed the case. I asked how many other orders have been canceled and he said ~1400.

I'm not sure if this has affected Amazon.com orders as well - someone needs to find out.

You WILL still receive your Borg Bridge Officer in game unit code however!

INSTEAD, you can buy the Standard Edition here http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00361G0L8/ for 19.99 instead of the listed 39.99 with the voucher you will receive in your email although I am not sure if everyone will receive one.

Yeah, same.

But wow. I can't believe they've canceled that many pre-orders. That can't be good for business, can it. :/

Mine's fine, I've not recieved a mail, thankfully... The only reason I pre-ordered was for this unusable headstart, and the Borg Bridge Officer.

Yep, i got the same email. If I don't get my pre-order I won't shop with Amazon again. I ordered the gold edition because I wanted the stuff with it.

20 for the standard is only 10 cheaper than others are still selling the Gold edition.

FFS and I cancelled from HMV to get amazons freebie /sigh

Is this not tied to the retail code??
