Think your maths is a bit off there, mate - it'll be 9 hours to go in 10 minutes (at 3pm.)

I'm off work tomorrow, but have pre-ordered from amazon rather than Steam, so will be waiting for the postman. :(

Oh well.

Check in "My account" > "Where's my stuff?": mine's listed as "Dispatching soon" and still has the estimated delivery date as tomorrow (possibly because I'm on Amazon Prime.) If yours is still listed as "Not yet dispatched", you may not get it tomorrow, and so might want to look at other options, e.g. cancelling on amazon and simply getting to your local store early tomorrow.

This is the best first person shooter I ever played...it is just unbelievable how good it is. Like splinter cell and assassins creed all rolled into one. By far...bigger and better than the other Deus Ex we all played many years ago. Pro tip: take your time exploring as there are many items laying around in places that are hard to see if you running all the time...so slow down and look around

25th Aug 2011, 15:47
Got an email from Amazon.co.uk last night at midnight saying that my payment hadn't gone through. Turns out I pre-ordered it so long ago that my debit card has changed since then and my previous card details are now obviously invalid. My new card was registered with Amazon as I've bought things from then since then, but because when I pre-ordered the game I'd had the old card it had tried to take money from that. So I quickly popped on and put in my new card details, within 30minutes of getting the message. Even though I did this and it is being delivered first class my estimated delivery date is now 30th August (because of the bank holiday).

Sigh...I'm trying to take it in a positive way...

I'm in the UK too and my estimated delivery date was set for tomorrow, but somehow it arrived today. Amazon prime guarantees that the game is delivered on the date, so don't feel bad about that. Now you can stock up on haribo and ribena ;).

I'm the same as you guys. Mine got dispatched on Suday due to 'epic size' (wtf?) and the postman just came without it. I usually get games from them a day early but I don't know if I should even have hope for a parcelforce delivery. If I don't get it until Tuesday then i'm gonna be pissed. I paid for day one play after all. It doesn't help that GAME decided to take down their website for maintenance so I can't check the tracker.

Guys, if you ordered from GAME then you may be interested in this:


Game have in the last few months switched from using the Royal Mail 1st Class PPI posting to Downstream Access - essentially they went from 1st class to whenever the middleman they're using gives it to us to deliver the final mile. It saves them a few pence, means we make a loss delivering it but that's what we deal with.

Back when they used us direct games used to arrive with the customer on or the day before the release date. Now you'll be lucky.

The only people you can really complain to are Game for using an inferior product.

Maybe enough people telling them so will get it back to how it used to be, just a couple of months ago!
