PRE-ORDER. Release Date: 21.05.2010

Next cheapest I can find atm is £34.85 @ ShopTo.

Split/Second, an intense action racing game set within the world of a hyper-competitive reality television show. Competitors vie to be the first across the finish line in a made-for-TV city built for destruction, with the ultimate goal of becoming the season champion. Competitors in Split/Second don't just collide with other vehicles to knock them from the track -- they can also trigger explosive events that drastically alter the dynamics of the race. Players must use strategy and pinpoint timing to derail opponents, tactically alter the track or create entirely new routes.

great price but ill stick with my Shopto pre order. the reason being is that once release date comes you will get an e-mail saying the price was a mistake and that the order has been cancelled.
i pre ordered Saints Row 2 from Tesco Entertainment ages ago at a bargain price (£9.99) but it was cancelled the day before release due to pricing error.

Cheers anyway OP...

I think they do it deliberately so that you cancel your orders elsewhere. They end up sending you an e-mail stating: "We would like to offer you the chance to purchace X for £(ridiculous price). Unfortunately the price you agreed to pay was a pricing error and cannot be honoured."

Awful Company
#9
Best deal of week, perhaps...
#10
Not gonna bother after the last few.
#11
Cant order it away, just hangs on payment...yippe !!!! :-(
#12
Nice, ordered!
#13
if people use topcashback, quidco etc id still order, as you still get your cashback, cancelled or not:thumbsup:, ive recieved over £13 in tesco cashback and never recieved one item lol
#14
No way would I order from these monkies after the Left 4 Dead fiasco. Even though they cancelled the order, they still took payment and it took them 11 days to refund me.

To name but a few, my Left 4 Dead 2 (Xbox 360) was cancelled and so too was my "Rise of the Footsoldier" blu-ray that had been on order since before xmas.
The e-voucher I received from them as an apology over the Left 4 Dead 2 fiasco did not work and contacting their customer service was like pulling teeth!
Personally, I wouldn't even waste my time pre-ordering from these cowboys because they WILL cancel it. I will show my appreciation of this company by simply ordering from other websites and suggest that everybody considers this stance too! :x
#16
Snowball's chance in hell that they'll honour this...
#17
Far too many of these Tesco preorders just end up failing, with them claiming it was a misprice.

We really need more power against companies that repeatedly do this - force them to honour their misprices. For something that seems to happen with quite a few of the recent big name games, it's hard to believe that each of them was a genuine mistake.
#18
Looks like an ace game. Would love to get it at that price.

It's not un-common for the PS3 version to be cheaper lately for some reason.
#19
price showing @ £39.99 now guys.
#20
Can this be expired guys?
#21
if it was this price anywhere else I'd have ordered it, but not from tesco - they will cancel everyones order. They done it to me 3 times before. Awful company.
This game will end up really cheap not long after release anyway much like Pure their previous release did. I am sure it'll be great though.
#22
Not strictly related to this deal but I would also avoid Tesco Entertainment. I ordered Killzone 2 from them (non-platinum). Turned up after just over a month (despite being in stock with '3-5 days') and it was the platinum version in the crappy silver case...which I could have got from pretty much anywhere for a similar price.
#23
Ive only used them twice. Fifa 10 @ £25, was part of their launch deal, took over a week to come but i guess that was down to it selling out the same day it was put online. The other being L4D2, and got cancelled.

I hope you mean Tesco, and not Black Rock Studios. PURE was an amazing game, and this looks brilliant too.

The product page now states £39.99.

I hope you (all) are lucky. Unfortunately I've seen time & time again that Tesco Entertainment either do not honour their prices or fail to delivery either on time, or at all. Fingers-crossed for you all, though.

I gained 11% of the Trophies last night & cannot wait to get back home tonight to play it again. Two of my kids are playing the offline "split screen" mode as I type. I don't think I've seen them this excited about a car racing genre title... ever (as they are usually EA Sports or First/Third Person Shooter fans although they have played both of the first two "Motorstorm" titles, and a few of the "Burnout" franchise games including "Burnout Paradise").

I expect the next Ridge Racer release will have to come up with something very special to beat "Split/Second: Velocity" for arcade style thrills.

jus called up as there is no confirmation on delivery,
they said that they are out of stock... and should be getting some next week. I think that is the most rubbish i have heard today. I guess all signs pointing to No..
#34
Mine still waiting despatch. Yet go to the item and they are in stock for next day despatch.
#35
Status: Awaiting Despatch.
Estimated despatch: Within 4 to 5 Working Days from 22 May 2010

got a email yesterday, sayng that they are awaiting stock
#36
Yep, me too. Makes me more hopeful that we'll get it eventually.

I've still got Red Dead sealed so I'm in no rush ATM.
#37
just got the cancellation email, im calling tesco now, grrrr

just got off the phone with them, and explainied all pre orders over 1 month gets cancelled due to a glitch in the system (sounds a bit iffy)

but they will try and contact their sales team to see if they will honour the price..
so fingers crossed.
#38
Had the same email again today - phoned them up and quoted their "price promise" , thing is its not that cheap considering amazon and a couple of companies were offering pre order around £25,

These companies should sort themselves out - they rectify the faults so far down the line that p*** people off that they could have pre-ordered elsewhere if they realised the problem and fixed it then.

I remember ordering time crisis for ps3 and that was the same - cancelled the day before stock came in,

GFRRRRRR
#39
Mine been cancelled today. Not happy with them again
