Ive pre orderd the special edition from GAME along with the LE strategy guide but i hate pre-ordering from game the last 2 games i have pre orded from them came late, nfs mw was 3 days late no biggie but my halo 4 LE was 2 weeks late, i found it annoying that the only place i could find in the UK to pre order the special edition was GAME. is anybody else worried about the same thing?

I normally pre-order from GAME, got my F1 2011 on release day and LA Noire and F1 2012 a day early. I find them reliable enough and pre-ordered my SE from there.

why not just pick it up at a store near you instead of ordering it online

Wish I didn't read this moto_whistle.gif I preordered from GAME as, as you said, it's the only place for the SE in the UK. At the time I posted a thread about it and most people responded they were reliable enough.

The only thing that's worrying me now is I live in the country a little bit so don't know if I'll get it or not, surely they should send them early it makes sense?

Also, 2 weeks late is not "late"; it's a god damn f*ck up!

Better to be safe than sorry with a big game like this. Unless you're cool with potentially waiting a few days. Stick to brick and mortar purchases.SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL VIDEOGAME STORE.

Edit: I've had many a game come early and as many come late. I'd rather not take the gamble with GTA.

I have preordered the SE from Game though only in store for collection. This was because in can pick then game up before the post man arrives. I've also got a preorder from Tesco.

Here in 'Murica the SE is available from Amazon. I pre-ordered the standard version from Amazon in April of last year and last week I decided to pre-order the SE for if I decide to stick with Amazon instead of going to WalMart late Monday night for the release and I figured if I was going to spend the $10 or so it'd cost to take the drive there and get it I might as well spend the extra $10 on get the SE. Amazon currently doesn't have release date delivery for the SE and with no Prime I didn't get free two-day shipping so I contacted customer service about getting my free shipping transferred to my new order and they went along with it and the CS rep set it to one day shipping so if Amazon updates I'll get it on release day. Think I'll just go to bed Monday night or early Tuesday, get my sleep and wait until the usual 11AM-1PM time range that FedEx and UPS usually deliver for it.

If GAME is that unreliable I'd either pick it up in store if you can or try to find another option, even with the cheapest of the cheap in shipping options it shouldn't take that long.

I live on the near outskirts of a town and because it's a Tuesday release i normally don't get post on that day confused.gif
From past experience with game the last Tuesday release game i ordered was Call Of Duty and i never got it until Wednesday!
I hear people saying they get there game a day early when ordering with game but i have never had this, It's either a day late if im not expecting post on that day, or it will arrive on the day - but never early.
This time i will be giving game a miss, im only interested in the standard version so im going to be shopping elsewhere smile.gif

Unfortunately unlike the USA, the limited edition GTA V is only available exclusively at Game.co.uk hence why I've also had to pre-order from there. I usually would use amazon or shopto.net as I'm comfortable knowing they deliver on time. This is my first pre order from Game so I'm just praying that they follow up to the good reviews people have written of them and they deliver on time if not earlier.

I have pre ordered from GAME a couple of times. I got F1 2010 a day early, and also got RDR (with stratergy guide) a day early. I got Fallout: New Vegas (with stratergy guide) on release day, so i cant say that i have ever had a problem with a game not arriving when they said it would be.
I either go with GAME or Amazon but seeing as GAME are the only ones with the Special Edition i had no choice, but it isnt like it matters a they are good when it comes to delivery.

I've been let down twice for a pre-order at game. One was Rock Band 3 and the other was Red Dead Redemption. I've been recommended to preorder from shopto.net, so that's what I did smile.gif

Just goes to show then that there is no correct plave to pre order to gurantee anything as like i said above, i have never had a problem and half the time get the games a day earlier.

i think you'd be better buying the special edition straight from ROCKSTAR and get the LE guide from Amazon.co.uk.

I'm pretty much a magnet for sh*t so there's no doubt I'll get my GTA V two weeks after release.

I'd squeal with excitement if I got it a day before or god forbid, release day!

GAME aren't the problem with orders showing up late, it's usual Royal Mail to blame, they're awful.
