Been watching this Topic for last 2 days and just had to stick my ore in!
Originally ordered my copy through Amazon. Then ordered my Brother a copy through Amazon for his Bday. Then saw all the hype about shopto and ordered a copy through shopto. (have an agreement with my friend that he will buy one off me but i get the first that arrives.
I am a first time shopto user.
My shopto order is 'Completed' with no pic (not all have pics depending which system they went through).
The newest Amazon order (my brothers that i ordered 18th Aug) changed to 'Despatching Now' yesterday.
My copy (that i ordered 3rd Aug, before my brothers) only changed to 'Despatching Now' today.
I have had no emails from either companies regarding despatch (only payments)
Although that I feel that I would like to know what's going on I dont, as of yet, feel as though one company have been any less reliable than another in getting me the game by launch. To be perfectly honest I don't have a clue what's going on with either, I thinks its probably just luck of the draw!
For those of you gutted about changing to ShopTo from Amazon....dont be as I did and neither have been despatched anyway.
Both Amazon and ShopTo have promised me the game by Launch and I live in Devon.....so, the race is on!
I am in exactly the same situation aha
