View Full Version : Sort of OT: Online ordering and delivery

Okay here the thing, if I order SHIII from Play.com I save about 12.

But if I go to my local GAME shop (I pass it on my way home from college... perfect) I get to play it there and then.

Does anyone remember dealing with play.com before and getting the game/dvd/etc. they oredered on the release date or did they get it a few days after?

I really dont want to miss out on the weekend of play time http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Play can be hit and miss. Some items I've had a little early, some on time and others not till later the following week of release. The plus point with Play are the prices as alot of good games come out cheap and SHIII was listed at 17.99. I had my preorder with Play but cancelled it in favour of getting it with the ship recognition manual from Ubisoft at the cost of 29.99 which would be the usual shop price.

If you really want it when its released and don't mind the extra cash then I would recommend purchasing from your local store. If you can wait then go with the savings from Play.
