Am I the only one who pre-ordered KOF 2000 from NCSX that didn't get an e-mail confirmation of my pre-order? I think I remember someone saying they got an e-mail confirming their order. Was this because they pre-ordered via e-mail and not by phone?

I talked to Susan about my MVS problem, and not KOF2000... I will call her tomorrow and figure out if they have me or not. I did preorder via email but haven't heard anything since.

I'm also going to see if I can order a 2nd copy if that is even possible. fuck fuck fuck I wish I had done that today... :-(

BTW: Their MVS inventory is NOT tied into their purchasing system. So an MVS cart you want to buy from them may already be sold out.

As always, your mileage will vary

I am surprised, they sent me an email the same day I pre ordered the game, confirming they had me in mind. I used the customer inquiry form on their website to place my pre order. Hope you guys get something worked out, I hate to see anyone, not just myself, left out of getting the REAL KOF 2000.

your confirmation should look like this

>>>Hello, thanks for your e-mail. Yes, we confirm that you are on
our reservation list for KOF 2000 which we expect on Dec. 21.
We will contact you with a reminder a couple of weeks before
the game arrives to confirm the order with you.

Regards,
NCS<<<

$2K? THAT'S CRAZY FOR A NEO GAME...

On the other hand, $2K for a date with Mai's voice actor would be worth it!

I confirmed with them today, and they did have me on the list. I think the e-mail confirmation was for people that pre-ordered via e-mail only.

Hey everyone! This is my very first and long over due post. I know for a fact that I am a super huge Neo Geo Ffffffffan.. hehe.. I emailed NCSx and they said that I need to pre-order threw a credit card or fully pre-pay for my kof2000 cart if I want to be put on the list... They said that the pre ordering is for a limited time.. I know for a fact that I could have the money buy Dec 21, I did it befor with Kof 98, and Garou. Since they can't wait... what should I do... any suggestions...

so, does that mean they expect full payment now, or that they still plan to finalize everything about two weeks before the game is released? That is what NCS had originally said they were going to do in the email confirmation I got, anyway. Just wondering what the deal is at this time.

any suggestions...
-------------------

Sure, contact Japan Video Games in California. 626-281-9282 or http://www.japanvideogames.com/
They allways get in the new neo carts. They also dont take preorders, so when KOF arrives you can just call them up & order. I bought many new neo carts from them with no problem.

I confirmed mine too with NCSX.
I think NCSX will finalize the price this week. At least, it is what they told me in the reply.

Anyway,

For other KOF 2000 preorder,
I know one site: www.playthegames.com (http://www.playthegames.com)
I think it costs $309.

They are used to be "Game world". But, I think Game world is going out of business a year ago and "playthegames" took over. I never dealt with Play the games.
I do not know their services. But, Game world service is one of the best

By the way,
I live close to Japan video games (about 15 minutes local driving).
I can check out on them by the time it is released.

But, the cost of paying local taxes is more than "out of state shipping cost" for prices above $250.
That's why I hardly buy from them (Japan video games) unless I freaking can not wait any longer for the games.

Don't deal with jnlgames.

I've sent them multiple emails and tried to call them at various times and with no response. I was interested in buying the Magical Drop 3 game they have but screw it now.

Well you guys can always just buy a fake KOF 2000 cart from NGF . . . only $2000, and you even get a fake insert made from artwork stolen from SNK!! And a manual that is exactly 2 pages long (well 4 if you count the front and back covers), wow they really must have printed small to fit the moves for all 34 fighters on TWO PAGES . . . great job on that one, "NGF". http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

What a GREAT DEAL, we should ALL rush to neogeofreak.com to buy our copies IMMEDIATELY . . . http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif

I just pre-ordered a copy of KOF 2000 from NCS myself. I had all intentions of
purchasing a copy from Japan Videogames, but they're doing a 'first come first served'
basis with their KOF 2000 cartridges, and I wanted to secure a copy for myself without
being disappointed on release day. =)

NCS doesn't like for people to pre-order multiple copies of Neo Geo cart games, for since they are only allocated a limited amount they want to make sure everyone can at least get a chance and get at least one... not order two or more, one to keep and the rest to post on a place like EBay.

It's a shame that they had to shut down the pre-orders so soon. Maybe they might have some extra carts when they eventually come in, for there could be a few people that wind up not being able to go through with the deal at the last minute. Otherwise, I don't know what else to tell you.

That sound really strange eazy. I am not surprised they do limit the number of KOF carts that can be purchased. I think, if for some reason NCS cant come through for me, I might try Japan Video Games, they are a good outfit.

I *MAY* have 2 extra copies of KOF2000 when it's released. I'll let you know when that happens. I'll charge the same rate as NCS would charge plus shipping.
