    You have no rights at all. As history has shown me, HMV are not reliable for pre-orders. Annoying as it is, there are actually very few online retailers that manage to ship games in time to play over the weekend.

    I presume the problem is that larger retailers don't want to be associated with breaking release dates in case the game arrives early.

    No guarantees from HMV you'll receive a pre-order on release day... especially with the postal strikes.

    Leg it round to Tesco, buy it for £25 and call HMV telling them you dont want it anymore.

    Only one I've ever found to be really good is The Hut. Have had Blu Rays from them over a week before the release date in the past :thumbsup:

    yup, HMV are pants with pre orders, iv pre ordered four things from them before hoping to have them on release day, everyone has turned up the Tuesday after.

    This is why i shall never pre order from them again

    That's exactly what I would do. Especially if HMV haven't dispatched yet.

    The Hut have actually been pretty good, Shopto seem to be the experts though. Whilst GAME often manages a Saturday delivery.

    with shopto they are only good if your billing and delivery address are the same, have had problems with them delivering to the wrong place but on time lol!

    Amazon or shopto

    Yes, but you might have to pay to post it back to them.... not sure if they do free returns.
