Game online has stopped taking pre-orders aswell!

Don't worry, I think you might survive. Have you heard the phrase: "It's only a game"?

What about Woolworths ? The don't take pre-orders and always have them in on the day.

And BTW I done your Survey on the other thread :thumbsup:

Just seen it on woolies, says out of stock but I will go in store.

I will need to bring someone who has ID. (un-funsies)

I've got it pre-owned and Im not sure if I want to get it yet.
Does that make me a bad person?

Don't forget to try Blockbusters if your going out of town and there is one there.

My cousin tried pre-ordering it from there today, and they can't promise that he will get one on release day, best of luck trying to find a copy though. I'm sure if you ring around you'll find someone who will have some spare :thumbsup:

i dont think there will be... amazon, comet, play, game, gamestation all sold out

If I we're you I'd try phoning all the small game or gamestation stores in obscure little towns around where you live, basically anyone who you think will be getting it in, it's worth a try?

I should buy it and sell it for a ridiculous price on eBay.:whistling:

Or just buy it for myself;-)

already done there is only one place close which would have stock (in a pokey little town and they have sold 345 preporders and have no more)

not gonna get a 360 now i think.... only reason i wanted one!

+ there are pre-orders on ebay but they say delivery 1 wk after release

Well, you pay £5 to pre-order it.
So you're paying 35?

that'll do me, i'm going down to check right now

It's either £40 or £44.99

I suppose you could argue how its £40 every where else.

Moral is order well before like 3 mths or something.

I've ordered way back but not desperate to get it,I'll be lucky if i get to playit that evening on day it arrives.

nacider did you find out how much it is in blockbuster?

do you have to play on the day?

I got mine on pre order from Shopto, who confirmed the other day there is enough copies to fulfill all pre orders, its worth a shot, as you might get it day earlier from them, if not at your door on release day cancel order.

they've stopped taking preorders. i almost cried in the shop

on the plus side they have tonnes of really cheap preowned games, they are ALOT cheaper than game or game station, i was pleasantly surprized.

does any1 know anywhere that is taking pre-orders come n people share the luv ;-)

are GAME still taking pre orders ?!

online i guess, it says dispatched in time for release day.

So if you dont get it for release day, one word: COMPLAIN!

Im tempted to get it there instead actually.
