    I preordered my copy of GRAW from Amazon on monday, with an estimated despatch date of wednesday the 8th, estimated delivery of thursday 9th - friday 10th.

    It is now thursday and i STILL have "despatching soon" as an order status? has anyone else ordered from amazon? how is your order going? needless to say im pretty p**sed off about the whole thing - think it will be the last time i use amazon for games..... :mad:

    ps - im going to get burnout revenge next week - who would you say is generally the best for delivery, play, gameplay or somone else?

    Yeah, I used to have this when I pre-ordered from Amazon in the past (and why I don't use them any more - it's not like they're cheaper or anything!). I'd expect they'll ship today, so you get it tomorrow. That's still on time mind, but if you want it early, Gameplay or Play are your best bets.

    Yep, I'm in the same boat! The only reason I ordered from them was because I had a voucher.

    In the future I'll stick with play.com;)

    In my experience Amazon have always been pretty crap for pre-orders.

    At best your stuff will turn up on release day, but more often than not it's a day or two later.

    Gameplay usually get your games to you a day or two early, so I'd recommend them in future.

    Every game I have ever pre-ordered from Amazon hasent been dispatched until the day before release but so far they have all arrived the next day so really cant complain because they are delivering them for release day.

    But to be fair that's not Amazon's fault. The release date is Friday and that's what they aim to get it to you by. If you're not in, then why are Amazon to blame?

    True enough - but your thread title does imply you're not satisfied with Amazon, grumpy face and all...

    That's the other good thing about Gameplay - they give you the option of choosing a letterbox-friendly plastic jiffy bag to pack your order and regular first class post instead of recorded delivery or some courier, so stuff can get posted through your door without you having to be in to sign for it.
