    Does anyone know of an online shop where you can order pre-release titles and they send them to you as soon as they get them rather than waiting for the offocial release date.

    The problem with ordering online is that invariably the new game is not delivered until a few days after the release date. It is bad enough waiting for the release date without having to wait even longer for it to be delivered.

    Seconded - Gameplay are £3 - £5 more expensive but will get you the stuff on Thursday every time. Except consoles.

    Play will also sometimes get you games early but they are not quite as dependable.

    Don't know about online stores but my local Woolworths has always got games out on the shelves before release dates, so tend to check in there quite a bit for new releases :devil: as it seems no-one seems to understand what a RELEASE DATE is in there. They do the same for DVD movies, eg Matrix Revolutions i think had a Friday release date, on the shelf in woolies on the Moday before!

    Thanks - will give gameplay a go. I have used them once before but I cannot remember if it came on time or not!

    The one game I pre-ordered from Gameplay arrived a day before release. :thumbsup:

    I just got sent a DVD from Play that doesn't release for another week! Of course, I haven't received the DVD, just got the shipping confirmation, so maybe it was an error.
