I know it's £16.99 online at Sainsburys - but this is the cheapest I could find it online, so I've just ordered it. ShopTo also do a 5 minute dispatch!
Good price. I got mine from Sainsburys entertainment with a discount code making it £13.59. Have some heat

Yeah same here, mine arrived on Saturday but no biggie!
If I buy this, can I get to keep my current game saves and continue from the point I am now within the game, or do I have to restart from the beginning?

The reason I am asking is:
I used to hav the online version of Burnout Paradise from PSN. When I bought "Burnout Paradise - The Ultimate Edition" a few months ago (hard copy), it didn't recognize the game save files, meaning tht I had to restart from the beginning if I wanted to play it....

I just got mine from sainsburys for around £13 something, don't worry you can use your current game saves just remember to install the dlc in the game even if redeemed from psn store.
Buy this if you haven't got it.

It's a slow (painful) start earning money but after that it is amazing.
Probably the best game ever made..(and I'm a COD fan)
Stopped playing the original GT5 because of the *horrible* load times. Any real world advice on upgrades? The PS3 is basically a media player because of the speed that games load.

I've read some things that say an HDD upgrade is worth it and some which say it isn't noticeable because the onboard controller is very slow.

Heat added, excellent deal for an excellent game (even without the DLC), and if someone can advise on making it faster, I'll go back to playing it!
yeh was loving this game till my ps3 broke >.< now its jammed in there, well gutted
How much will this take up on your HDD? I've heard rumblings of 12 gigs!

It defo prompts you to do an 8gb install, which I rejected...but it seems to do installations every race. Not sure if it would if I did the 8gb install but seems a bit weird that it prompted me, i said no and it still installs (or appears to) regardless.

Great game though, got it for £13odd from Sainburys but there is a lot of game for your money
Just purchased this with the Quidco cashback. Heat added. Thank you.

They have update the game many times now. Each time they speeded up the load times.

Off topic, but have you tried the force eject on your PS3? Worked for me in the past - basically hold the eject button for a few seconds till it spits out your disc.

Since the site re-design no quidco been tracking on Shopto - hmm. Maybe time to flush out my cache/cookies again.

I've ordered from them a few times and they've always been fine. In fact, they seem even more on the ball this time as they're offering a "5 minute dispatch" and, sure enough, within 5 minutes I was e-mailed a picture of my actual package - all correctly addressed and labelled and ready to ship. Should arrive today with any luck.

I've not voted this deal.
However I want to warn people that their order may not be as smooth as yours If anything goes wrong prepare to struggle to get your money back. I paid almost 130 euros for Mass Effect 3 CE, received nothing and got refunded for only 2/3 of my payment, I'm waiting for the third refund but nothing happens. I'm happy that you got the photo of your package after 5 minutes, but this may not be the case for everyone

Likewise - I'm very sorry that you had problems with ShopTo and I hope they get resolved, but that may not be the case for everyone either.
Never had problems with Shopto. Just because a minority have had problems doesn't mean it's a crap company.

Remeber people post negative things when a company fails but when a company does fine people don't post to say the opposite

Of course! But I think it is better to inform people about the potential problems rather than just say that everything is fine

I had an item "go missing" at the start of the year, strangest thing about it was that they didn't send the usual picture of the item in its addressed jiffy bag and unfortunately the item was never restocked by them. They were pretty decent about refunding, just had to wait the standard waiting time that most sites and RM suggest before they would accept the claim, they then refunded the same day I sent back the claim form - it wasn't a 130 euros game admittedly.

If there's major issue with getting a refund you need to involve your bank, Paypal or a consumer group.

The game was "only" 42 euros but they charged me three times because their website is (was?) not integrated well with PayPal. I paid with PayPal twice and then with credit card. I got a refund for the PayPal payments, but nothing for the credit card payment. Purchase was made on August 24th so the period to wait before asking for a refund has already passed. Worst part is that I can't find ME3CE anywhere else.
Actually it is pretty well integrated regarding Paypal. Sounds like your just trying to find fault or was extremely unlucky

I'm describing my experience with them, for sure I was extremely unlucky I hope they sorted out the problems with PayPal, since they happened more than a month ago. Maybe now they are the most reliable vendor on the web, but I'm still waiting for a refund and I missed the opportunity to get the same game elsewhere when it was still available (for a reasonable price). Anyways I'm not the only one complaining, just check their account on Facebook.
It seems to me that they are investing a lot of money in "bells and whistles" (reports from game conferences, photo of the package etc.) but they are overlooking essential things, like answering to their costumers or delivering the actual package.
This is my experience of course.
good game for this price
Just to let you know: it happened again. I tried to log in and it says "Password incorrect" (but it OBVIOUSLY correct since I used it until this morning). Password reset system: it doesn't work: it says it has sent a reset email but nothing arrived.
WORST. COMPANY. EVER.

PS: for anyone wanting to say "it works fine for me!", I'm happy for YOU, but it DOESN'T work for me!
I guess Shopto really doesn't like you
They like my money though. This is unbelievable. Can anyone try and see if password reset system works for them? Maybe one of the "it works fine for me" guys? :P
