Did anyone else order through amazon and get a delay? I will apparently be getting the game on november 4th and thats with priority shipping, yet I have had it pre ordered for a long while.

It fluctuates for some reason. First it was Nov 4, then it went to Oct 28 now it's Nov 3. Don't stress about it until it gets close to Oct 28.

I've noticed Amazon.ca tends to ship their games out a few days after release even with priority shipping. I only use it for games that are already released or if I don't mind waiting since a lot of their games are cheaper these days.

After my GTA IV was greatly delayed I've lost a lot of faith in Amazon. Right now I'm doing a little test. I have 4 games on my preorder list from 3 different sites, Amazon, Play.com and GAME.co.uk.

I've ordered Saints Row 2 from Amazon: release date 17 Oct

Fable 2 from GAME: release date 24th for UK

and Fallout 3 and Gears of War 2 from Play.com: release dates 31st Oct and 7th Nov

I'm predicting I won't get Saints Row 2 until around the 21st Oct, Amazon tends to ship orders on the day of release, not the day BEFORE release. If the game doesn't arrive on Saturday, it won't arrive on Sunday (no post) so comes on a Monday, which is pretty crap. Not overly hyped for Saints Row 2 so I'm prepared to wait.

I've heard good reception from GAME preorders, that they do ship before release day and they will arrive at your door before 1pm on day of release.

I've heard even better reception for Play.com, in some instances they will have your order at your door the day before release.

(I have also preordered Gears 2 from my local GAME store just in case, if I have 2 copies on the 7th my brother will buy one).

Amazon suck with preorders, depending on the popularity of a game you could be waiting up to a week for Fallout 3, not good if you ask me. However they did send me Spiderman 3 2 days before release, but who was hyped about that game?

Best site to use is GAME, every thing i have ordered from there has turned up day before release without fail. Might be that their warehouse is a 5 minute walk from my house so no reason for it to take too long :woop:

1 good reason to live in Basingstoke.

On a side note, Play.com lost my copy of frontlines and Amazon are usually day after release if im lucky.
