Question Sgt. Johnson Pre-Order Code Help.

I pre-ordered Halo 3: ODST months ago at GAME.co.uk and it's just been dispatched today but I am yet to recieve my code, codes from GAME, Amazon and Play.com usually come by email before the game has been dispatched, can anyone tell me if they have recieved their codes or if the codes get posted out with the game.

Thanks

I'm in the exact same boat. Ordered 3 months ago, got emails this weekend and today was dispatched. When i ordered it said that the unlock code was part of it, but now there is no mention of it on the website... And my emails said nothing about it either, any help would be great!

Thanks, at least I'm not on my own with this, I've just looked over at GAME.co.uk and your right they have wiped anything to do with the pre-order bonus of the website, it doesn't even mention it anymore.

From Game.co.uk? They never said that in my email all my pre-order offers get emailed to me before despatch except this one.

You should recieve your code within 10 buisness days after the games release. If your still waiting on your code after the 10 days, contact the store you ordered it from and they will be able to sort it.

Well out of about 30 games I have pre-ordered from GAME.co.uk this is the first one thats had a problem (the code may still come), I usually get the game's I order 1-2 days before release, it's free delivery, I get points after each purchase to get my next games cheaper and there is always a bonus code or item free, so I wouldn't have it any other way.

So here's hoping I won't get let down and GAME send out emails Monday or Tuesday.

At Play.com, they say that the codes will be sent on the week of release.

This may apply to GAME.

Hopefully, my copy of the game should arrive tomorrow, since it was dispatched on Friday, but if not, Tuesday it shall be.

Update: I checked my past emails and nowhere in any of the 6+ emails i have gotten does it mention the sgt johnson preorder code at all. So I don't have proof.... But as with the OP when i ordered (early june) it said i would get the code. I will complain if i don't though. Hopefully it won't come to that.

I know that NewEgg.com had the "within 10 days of the game's release" in their fine print details. People around here seem really impatient though. The XBL MarketPlace may not even be set-up to accept the codes as of yet. We are still 24+ hours from release.

With so many copies of the game having been sold early this is the one thing MS is actually making everyone wait for perhaps.

They've done the same on Amazon.co.uk. I'm not too worried about losing Johnson but its pretty pathetic promising it with all preorders and then taking it away at the last minute, without mentioning why or notifying anyone.

Even if they are just doing this for "late" preorders, all orders between now and release and still classified as preorders, so they shouldn't be able to remove it.

However, when it was written on Amazon.co.uk, it did say the email would be sent up to 10 days after the game has been dispatched. Now i can't back this up, since obviously Amazon has wiped all trace of it being offered.

Most websites delay the code despatch now, as people used to pre order games and then cancel the pre order as soon as they had their codes.

For example, i pre ordered World at War ages ago, just for the free beta codes, then cancelled it. But people did this for more valuable codes and sold them on ebay.

Got mine via email from gameplay.co.uk on Friday and redeemed it the same day, so it's definitely on the marketplace.
