    Hi all

    I was doing some reading up on the pre-order for Forza 2 standard edition which seems to get you a code for a 350Z from certain retailers

    Also there is the Limited Edition which gives you 3 extra cars and a book.

    Does anyone know if you pre-order the limited edition do you get the 350Z code ?

    Also where in the UK do people recommend pre-ordering from ?

    regards

    Raj

    Im not sure of the answers to most of your questions but as far as pre orders go i can highly recomend shopto.net.
    ive had certain games from them almost a week early and there very competitively priced. Im sure others on here will agree there top notch.:thumbsup:

    Iv got this on pre-order from Game and iv just had an email confirming the release date has now been put back to 8/6/07....:(

    I know the wait will be worth it and give the devs more time to sort any bugs.

    Do pre-orders with Gameplay come with the same "free" cars as the pre-orders with Game?

    It doesn't look as if Gameplay are doing the 350Z. I pre-ordered from Gameplay to guarantee delivery by day of release (not sure how good GAME are for that).

    I've got the same dilemma. I order all my games from Gameplay cos they're so reliable with delivery the day before the official release. If Game can offer the same service, I may as well go with them to get the free cars.

    It looks as if you only get the free car with the standard edition of the game (I am getting the special edition).

    I heard that the extra cars weren't available out of the box.......

    they were going to be available as DLC in a few months....

    So I cancelled my LE.....I aint bothered about a nice booklet for an extra 6 quid....

    Anyone wanting to get a good deal, should order from Shopto.net, however I emailed Game about the 350Z pre-order promotion code, and well they are not offering it with the Limited Edition.

    I do all my pre-orders with Game.co.uk and they always arrive the day before release date, even with the free shipping option. Their customer service is really good too.

    Got Forza 2 (with bonus 350Z) on pre-order with the £5 off discount code SENSE. Not sure it still works but myself and Tetlee have been rinsing it for a good while now without any problems ;)

    Anyway, I cant recommend Game.co.uk enough for pre-orders. I used to use Play.com but over the past few years they've been getting slacker and slacker on their delivery times. Never used Gameplay as their site is blocked at work and Shopto.net take your money as soon as you order (or so I believe) so I dont like using them either.

    They don't seem to, I made a large order some months ago containing some items that aren't due for release until May - charged for each item as it is despatched. Pretty sure it's not legal to charge for things long before despatch..

    Cool. In that case I might give them a try when I next pre-order. I've always been impressed by their prices but was put off by the thought of being charged months before a game was released. Must have been mistaken though!

    Cheers :smashin:

    It might be you who I spoke to about this SENSE code. I couldnt get it to work. I have now because I think you have to spend over £30 and it says Nat West so I think you have to use a Nat West card.

    For what it's worth, I've ordered the LE from powerplaydirect.com for £38.99 - which is a bargain and a half, I'd say. Not sure if it's still at the same price now, mind you.

    Wasnt me mate. I used a Lloyds TSB card and just put the code in the code box on the checkout page. Maybe the code doesnt work any more unless you DO use a Nat West card.

    I'll go see if there's anything else I want to pre-order something and if so report back my findings.

    EDIT: Just pre-ordered The Darkness and the code worked fine when used with my TSB card. You just have to be sure to enter it in the Discount Code box and press GO before completing the checkout process. £34.99... jobs a good un!

    Haha, I have the LE on pre-order with them in addition to my pre-order with Game. I'm going to cancel the LE though as I'm not bothered about the extra stuff that comes with it. The free car from Game is enough for me. Still, a damn good price for the LE even if I am cancelling it.

    Just used the SENSE code on game.co.uk (TSB) and I had £2.50 reward points, so got it pre orderd with the free car for £32.49. Not a bad price at all. :thumbsup:
