Target has announced it will honor PS4 console pre-orders which were made as part of a Watch Dogs or DriveClub console bungle.
The retailer announced it would honor the pre-orders, minus the games of course, and as way of apology for cancelling orders made by customers last week, the retailer will also toss in a $100 gift card.
“The release date for the video games Watch Dogs,Drive Club, The Order: 1886, and InFamous: Second Son have been delayed, and as a result, Target cancelled pre-orders for Sony Playstation 4 consoles that were going to be bundled with these titles,” read a statement from the company handed to Kotaku.
“We sincerely apologize to guests who were inconvenienced and are working directly with them to ensure they receive the console they selected by their original order date. There was no impact to Sony Playstation 4 pre-orders that were sold independently or bundled with other game titles.”
Kotaku checked with its readers who had reported to the site of the cancellations last week, and each said Target had indeed gotten back to them individually on the matter.
Here is the email sent to customers affected:
