This is all I would like to know really for those who have pre-ordered anything from them. I would just like to know how reliable they are with pre-orders. Any feedback would be appreciate are they worth using for pre-orders and products arrive on time for the release date especially using the free postage?

Thanks

have used them many times in the past, very reliable.:thumbsup:

Used them to pre-order a single before. Don't expect it on the day of release, but usually it'll come within the first week of release [unless it's full of bank holidays then maybe not..]

Hmm they don't sound all that reliable then. Thanks for the replies.

Considering GTAIV?

Basically yes Grand Theft Auto IV (Special Edition) *Playstation 3* is a title I definitely want on the release day if possible.

I don't want to spend the full £70.00 for one though, and that is why I am considering HMV online because they are selling it for £60.00 with free delivery.

I also preorded the special edition for PS3. With quidco and my 10% student discount Iwill get it forunder £50

My experience with preorder from hmv (twice before xmas) and each item was dispatched the day before release and received as soon as royal mail can manage.

I have only done it once with them and never again. I ordered it and it came 3 weeks after it should have, I got an email saying sorry but they should have sent it out 3 weeks earlier but basically forgot.

I think the HMV warehouse is in Jersey, so unless they send it off a few days before the realise date, it is unlikely you will get it on the day of release. If GTAs release date is on a Friday, it is likely you will get it on the Monday or Tuesday.
