    Hiya,

    I'm one of the amazon.co.uk faithful who pre-ordered from them after they guaranteed to have the DVDs to us on release day (Monday). I'm guessing that this means they will actually ship tomorrow (mine still says dispatching soon) but I wondered if anyone who ordered with them had seen their orders ship yet? Like earlier today or anything?

    I'll be pretty narked if it's not here Monday, but delighted if by some miracle it turns up tomorrow. Hehe... :laugh:

    Seems both Play & Amazon are holding back until Monday. Probably means most of them won't arrive on peoples doormats until midweek.

    The difference being Play (as far as I'm aware) didn't guarantee to have it on peoples doormats on release day. Amazon did, both in promotional e-mails and on their website. People don't have much grounds to be mad at Play (they made no guarantees, people were just assuming they'd ship early because they often do) but if Amazon don't get it to people for Monday then people have every right to be cross.

    I know people have been discussing returning late delivered product for refunds and whether that would be appropriate. The Amazon customers are probably the only people who could contemplate this. One could argue that in failing to deliver the product on the date promised (if that is indeed what happens, hey it ain't Monday yet) that Amazon are in breach of contract.

    I know at the end of the day it's only DVDs but I got my first DVD player in 1997 and I've waited long enough. :mad:

    I may be making a trip to MVC or something on Monday if my Amazon ones don't arrive. "There will be no-one to stop us this time, Commander!" :clown:

    Yup, I got the time from the e-mail, I suspect they have quite a few to process so I wouldn't worry about the exact time. I'm sure they'll all be handed over to Royal Mail today.

    Do the Royal Mail work on sundays? If not, how can they expect parcels despatched in the early hours of sunday morning to be sorted, routed and delivered in 24-ish hours?

    Still, I live above our villages post-office/sorting office so if it is here I'll have it as I leave for work.

    Fingers crossed.

    Email came from Amazon at 7:48am yesterday (Sunday). As someone has said probably a load of emails to send out....either that or somethings not right!
    Hopefully here later today..but I am half expecting the delivery to come on Tuesday.

    I didn't order mine until Firday, got a message saying despatched last night.
    I've ordered manythings from them that despatch on Sunday and arrive on Monday, so don't panic.
    I'd probably image thoose who paid for delivery guarantee to get it today, the rest of us might have to wait until tomorrow, Wednesday.

    I'll let you know if it arrives today.
