I have only really used Shopto and it's hit or miss with them as to when game arrives. Are Simply Games better or is there any others?
Cheers

The Game Collection and Simply Games would be my recommendations for the best online retailers in general, and have a consistent track record of delivering in time for release or earlier.

Many other places will also be fine for this, though - for example, Base, ShopTo and Gameseek. You'll not go far wrong with any of these.

Majority of reviews about Simply Games say there great and usually games would arrive early, not sure whether to go for them or Shopto again!

My advice would be to base your decision on price, if you've no other reason for loyalty to any particular retailer. Also perhaps bear in mind that some places (e.g., The Game Collection) offer reward points or similar, which can serve to reduce the effective price further.

I may well go for Shopto then as the game I'm going for is FIFA 17 and they currently have it cheaper although Simply games are £44 with 5 draft tokens, haha decisions :)

If it's FIFA that you're after, try Smyths - the code "FIFA5" will get you the game for £36.99 delivered.

Preordered Deus EX from Simply Games and arrived on a Friday when it wasn't out until the following Tuesday

Dont pre-order. Just inflates prices

In general, yes, this is a good approach.
