They don't tend to with Simply Games, The Game Collection, etc. Just buy here - they're the better retailer!

That's a shame Mine is currently at £34 with Amazon just wondering if it would drop anymore.

​why is it 34? I've had mine pre-ordered since day one and it's still nearly 50
for £34 that must be a voucher and prime discount. minesis sitting at £46 at present as I have prime discount on it.

I was hoping it would drop to around £40- 42 like Mario kart 8 deluxe , theres still time I suppose.
.
I tried simply games once and the game didn't arrived and I had such hassle form then I had to wait over 2 weeks after launch and had to make a few complaints before they would refund me. then I got well because you didn't pay £5 for delivery thats why my game went missing.

not worth the headache to try them again its only a few pounds saving.

I got the £10 off order over £50.
Then it dropped £2, and also the prime £2. They also messed the order up so I got £2 extra back.
thats a nice little steal you got there wish I had managed to get in on that £10 voucher , but £46 is better than £60 quid form other places.

I've had two preorders with simply games in the past. First one didnt show, enquired and it was never sent as they didnt get any stock. 2nd time after giving them the benefit of the doubt, same thing.

Never again.

Completely ignore that "will arrive on the 4th"
Its just an automated system being stupid....it will arrive on launch day

Amazon emailed me to say my order had been upgraded to release day delivery. If you don't have this email then I wouldn't assume anything
ordered, thanks o.p.
I made a bad call as well. I wish I had pre-ordered. Unfortunately, as a student, I can't justify spending £45 on a game but that seems to be the only option, especially as Nintendo games hold price. I hope my luck will change. It's always the case that Nintendo always print few copies to keep costs down.
I can't wait to play this I got mine for £38 from Amazon.
Incredible people are having a hissy fit regarding not receiving said game at launch but rather...the very next day. Some even expecting/hoping to procure said game BEFORE March 3rd. Get a grip you lot.
Bit more like it. Won't this come down to around 35 quid though once all early adopters of the switch have the game?
How is £45 cheap?

​they just changed mine to speed up for launch and have cocked up the dispatch date now to the 3rd to get here for the 4th. that and charged me £8 more on top as they haven't taken the £10 discount off for Amazon day

If it was any other game then fair enough, but it's pretty safe to assume that anybody ordering this is going to want it on or before launch day to avoid the disappointment of having a Switch with no games...
Even Wii U users like me are understandably excited for it considering the lack of software support over the past year or so.
I've got it preordered for the Wii U from Amazon for £40, but I'm tempted to pay a fiver more and go with TGC or Simply to get it a few days earlier.

£45 oO I don't think I've ever paid that for a game.

whats the rush though? may as well save a fiver and in those few extra days waiting, just do something else, a hobby, another game, film, book etc etc
I always order from simply games. Most of the time I get the game 2-3 days before release.

Could be worse... I could be this guy;

I've intentionally kept my gaming slate clean due to this and Mass Effect coming out in March, so I'm not about to start playing something else at this point. Sure I can do other stuff, but It's a Zelda game ffs... They're not exactly annual occurances like your CoDs or Battlefields! Allow me to be a bit excited about a massive event in my main hobby!

The 3rd is also a Friday and I'm getting it delivered to a work address, so if I don't get it on Friday, I miss out on a weekend of gaming.

Of course people are, it's a launch game for a launch Switch, I don't have any use for a console with no games. Also this is being shipped to my office so it'll be through Monday.
Thanks
Don't think I'll take the risk.. It's only a few quid more in Smyths and I can pick it up at midnight with my Switch
Amazon don't have any more physical stock for release day present.

I noticed that my price had increased and the discount had disappeared from the order so I got in contact with them, they have re-added the discount again. Still not sure on the dispatch, but as it happens I'm going to be busy on the Friday so won't get to play until Saturday anyway.
Doesn't feel like a good deal to me but Switch hype!!

It shouldn't be anything to be ashamed of - games are becoming an ever more mainstream form of media.

Also, for personally-addressed packages, the post handling team may be quite likely to pass it on to the addressee unopened - depending of course upon how your organisation works.
