Having preordered my copy of Modern Warfare 2 from Zavvi, I thought great now I've just got to wait for it to get here. But as current postal workers look destined to strike I started to get nervous about my game getting to me in time for launch day, as I'm sure Manu of you are. I decided to email zavvi regarding my order and unfortunately I can't copy the message they replied with onto here (possible problems with iPhone, only let's me view the message for about 4 seconds then closes!) I have been assured about the expected shipping date, they state that they will try and get the game shipped by the 7/11/09. And may take 3 to 5 working days, but then that doesn't account for any delays that may occur if Royal Mail workers do strike!
Had anyone any idea if we are guaranteed postage of said item in time for launch?
Thanks.

why oh why didnt you opt to pick it up at the shop?

you are guaranteed postage from the seller IE zavvi - meaning they will ship it out

you are not guaranteed the date it arrives, especially on unforseen circumstances IE postal strikes

I think you'll find a lot of business shipping with other companys instead of the Royal Mail if the postal strike continues. But watch this space. :thumbsup:

no big deal go out and buy it if it doesnt turn up and then either take the unopened 1 back to the shops or send it back to whoever....

keep the cheapest 1

To spend online as they have only online stores now as HMV bought 75% of the stores of them as we had the contract to change them over

Very few physical shops left though.

The competition code works online - That's where I ordered MW2 too :P Hoping it actually comes (Not worried if on time, just want it to get here based on my previous experience with TheHut group - Scumbags, but I couldn't pass this up).

Saying as you have ordered it from Zavvi you have nothing to worry about as the postal strike has no bearing on you not getting your game on time.

At least Map pack 1 will be out by the time Zavvi ship yours ::p

Yeah. Not looking good at the moment. Last year gears of war 2 came a day early if modem warfare 2 does them that'll be great. But obviously that'll be hard with a postal strike. I may wait then go on the night to tesco or wherever also. Just in case. I want the hardened edition rather than the bog standard. I like all the little extras that tend to come with a special edition, and the original copy of call of duty is also a nice little bonus. Fingers crossed anyway.

I've still got 2 on order there, will more than likely cancel soon as they will not arrive on R day for sure from HMV free postage regardless of any postal strike

My son is buying 2x mw consoles after I canceled the 2 mw limited ed consoles I had on order at game with M$ taking out 3 cables from package making the 360 an SDTV console out of the box by only supplying a dot crawl composite cable.

Do Argos deliver via RM or courier ?

RM for orders that are games.
#15
Just read on the Guardian site that Argos has other plans in place for when the strike commences (i.e they are using a different firm).

Result !
#16
I may try and give Zavvi s call, see if I am guaranteed delivery for 11th. They may end up sending it with a courier anyway with the value being above £50 and having probably already forseen any possible postal problems.

RM delivers most other firms mail though.

So unless they have dedicated vans of their own it will make no difference. Of course if Argos means they are using a courier like city link / hdl / dhl / etc that will be a different story. Although I would not get too excited about playing it on release day as Argos have let me down on a couple of occasions now

Well got a reply back stating that it will be delivered on release day via a courier !

+1 i have also, and on the basis that it was supposed to be very limited which does not turn out ot be true in shape or form, seeing as hmv have an endless supply, all about the $$$£££ , i preordered hardened edition £59.99 free P&P @ amazon
