The Hut and their delivery times?

I placed an order for Dragon Age Origins on the Hut website yesterday and I'm dying to get hold of the game because I have a little bit of time off work and I want to play it while I'm off.

Thing is, my estimated despatch date is a week away. That seems a little bit long to me.

Does anyone know if this is just a provisional date and they will deliver much sooner, or can I expect to wait over a week to get my game?

Thanks in advance.

wrong section fella, in fact you'd be better off contacting The Hut.

Moved to MISC,

I ordered a few times from them in December (games/PSN points etc) & they were faster than play / amazon (miles faster than their sister site Zavvi) - items came within 48 hours, was suitably impressed. Not sure what they are like for other types of items in case they are sourced from elsewhere. :)

NB sometimes when the Hut group list delivery within a week it can sometimes mean they don't have stock - give them a call as suggested above.
Thanks sigma. I'll give them a call tomorrow morning.
I ordered borderlands from them last wed, they dispatched it on the thursday, but i'm still waiting for it to arrive, nearly a week & it's still not here!
The hut group, Zavvi, and one or 2 other companies - all send from the channel Islands - these take 4 days minimum for me - although HMV managed 2-4 day - depends on whether order is over a weekend - slows delivery.

Mymemory were 5 days with an 8am order time on Thurs last. (Jersey).

Pre Royal Mail disputes, my many orders in the Summer proved amazon/indigostarfish to be the best - 2 days average. Hmv around 4. Zavvi 4 days. Hut/Zavvi 4 days. Ebay and ama marketplace sellers can also send on the day of the order - can arrive next day!

If in stock these are minimums - if awaiting supplies, could take longer.

I'm sure if you lived in the Outer Hebrides, it may be a tad slower, but a week sounds average in this industrial climate.
Decided to cancel and go with Amazon with first class delivery.
Having finished DA:O I wouldn't bother its very babyish game mechanics, too short and very linear.
