    Has anyone got experience of pre-ordering games from play, and if they ship early, to get to you on the release date?

    i've found that with dvd's i will always 99% get them shipped early. i've pre-ordered 2 games from them and got them 2-3 days after release date. most recently Halo2 ! i ended up going into town getting it and then selling the the other one on.

    a friend has recommended this site http://shop.gameplay.co.uk/webstore/index.asp and he says he has had several pre-orders ship early.

    i'll be pre-ordering 'silent hunter 3', which unfortunately is £7 more on gameplay than Play, though i have used gameplay before for some hardware (with good service). Sendit.com are doing it for same price as Play, but not sure on their despatch either. Decisions decisions..... :)

    If all else fails, i'll wait that extra 2-3 days you mentioned - a £7 saving is just too much to pass up in the end.

    I have used for Thief III and it came the day after release. I would use them again for anything I'm getting on release.

    Used both Play and Gameplay, both are excellent.
