View Full Version : pre orders

does anyone know if play.com, or gameplay still send preorders out a bit early, i.e. a day before release? cos i remeber they used to a while back

Not sure mate, but receiving it on the 10th is a long shot so I doubt you will get it any sooner if that is your thinking.

yeah i was thinking that in my slight desperation, thanks any way mate

I just got this info from play.com:

"Whilst we do endeavour to dispatch pre-orders so that they are received on the date of release, unfortunately we cannot avoid occasional delays passed on from our suppliers.

However, it is also very possible that we will receive stock early, in which case orders may be received by you ahead of the scheduled date of release."

ive order enuf games of both to no wat im talkin bout gameplay nearly always im talkin 99 % of the time u get it on the thursday b4 release and play u 99% of the time get it on release day reason being plays take longer to b delivered as it comes from jersey gives it a extra day to arrive to ur doorstep where as gameplay is based in leeds so it dont hope this helps

thanks a lot for your help clearing that up, i'll probably order it off gameplay if it comes day early. Do you reckon the next day ‚£5 makes much of a difference, ive never used them before
