    Right guys where's the best place to pre-order from? Who has consistently delivered on the release date or days before the release date.

    Amazon.co.uk have gone down in my estimations. My friend pre-ordered GTA IV well before they stopped taking pre-orders sometime in April 07 and still hasn't had his game delivered yet. And he selected 1st class delivery.

    Shop-to and HMV and GAME seem to be the places of choice for me and have heard a lot of praise for them getting games out to people bang on the delivery date.

    Any suggestions would be great :))

    ShopTo, apart from Euro 2008 and GTA IV they've shipped every game to me 1-3 days before the release date.

    Another vote for Shopto, apart from GTA 4 all other games have arrived 1-2 days before release date.

    This may sound unhelpful but I dont usually worry too much about pre-orders. Usually a Supermarket will sell the big games on midnight which is good enough for me. Many times ive pre-ordered in the past and not got the game until up to a week later. My worst example was UEFA CL on 360 last year. Preordered and got it a week and a half late!

    Gameplay and ShopTo. However Gameplay lost my copy of Euro but they fully refunded me a week later. I got GTA from them and got it on time.
