Hermes are an absolute fucking disgrace. 

 

Just tell amazon it never arrived. It's the only way they will learn to not use those cowboys.  If I see Hermes mentioned  as a shipping choice then I won't use that supplier.

I ordered a Switch and a Pro Controller from Shopto at about 1pm. They were dispatched with DPD just over an hour later to arrive tomorrow.

 

I ordered the same items from Nintendo UK on 17 January and nothing is happening - no dispatch, no communication, no idea what's going on. They've taken my money though.

 

Lesson learned.

And if they arrive tomorrow i'll be amazed!.  Fellow Amazonite here

 

Generally Prime always delivers the next day, even if I order in the evening.

 

Which is why they'll probably choose this one to fail on. :lol:

If you have prime I've noticed that amazon can wait to ship until late in the evening and it still arrives the next day.

OK, thanks, mine too. Just isn't valid yet.

 

Shopto gives them out in advance of DPD picking up the shipment; you won't get any actual tracking until your parcel has been collected from their warehouse.

I remember reading on one of the shops that the Hori case may not be a launch day thing - I have 21st in my head but that could have been another one such wide has been my case hunt!

Make sure you complaint to Amazon, use the pics as evidence, that's a disgusting way to treat a customer's order; utter morons.

Yep, already done. To be fair to Amazon, they got back to me within 15 mins on Twitter. Logging it officially on the site now. I'm not comfortable lying and saying that it didn't turn up but I'm not at all happy about it. Amazon are generally great in my experience and customer service has been good in the past so I expect they'll make it right.

 

The odd thing is choosing Hermes for such a big launch day. I've had DPD deliver loads of smaller items from Amazon in the past and they've always been flawless. I can only imagine that they get a better price for busy launch events, etc. from Hermes. I'll be asking that they never deal with one of my packages again, though.

Anybody's Hori case shipped from Amazon yet? 

 

No. Everything else seemingly arrived in my bashed up box of doom, but the Hori case is still sat at 'Arriving tomorrow / Not yet dispatched'.

Mine's Prime and still no movement. What a day. Honestly it's killing me.

 

I've pre-ordered loads of consoles for launch day delivery but none have got me this anxious before. Even if the fucking thing does eventually ship tonight sometime I'm going have the same or worse tomorrow waiting for Amazon Logistics to try and deliver to my work address before it's closed for the weekend.

 

Never again.
