Most likely not...

I've never had a pre-order with The Hut, but I have placed pre-orders quite a lot with their affiliate Zavvi and I can only think of one time I ever got it on the day. Worst one was where I was waiting over a week for Fable 3 >.<

It's a gamble really, depends how desperately you need it on release day, if it's a must I'd say look elsewhere to Game, Shopto etc if you don't mind waiting a few days, take the chance and you may even be pleasantly surprised

I pre-ordered GT5 from them about 2 weeks before release and I got it a day early
My workmate had ordered it as soon as he could - so about 9 months in advance I think it was from Amazon and got it 3 days late.

i have preordered over 10 games from the hutt and have never had them on or before release date, always a few days after, there sister site zavvi.com is a million times better, always had my preordered a few days early from them, i choose lowest price for my preordered over speed of delivery but zavvi are hands down the best for getting game a few days before release

The Hut??

You'll be lucky to get it at all.

Hey,
The Hut very good! They send there pre ordered via Royal Mail First Class at least 2 working days before release, from there warehouse in Warrington or Coventry depending which gets stock first!
I recieved Halo Reach 3 days early, Black ops 1 day early, and Deux ez 1 day early!
Recommended!

Thought id try The Hut for a preorder, its due for release tomorrow and its not been dispatched, had a look on the status of it and its says "Waiting for stock from supplier".

Red Orchestra 2 - PC

most likely because it's not really a big release and that's what they are good at

Yh, he ordered Red Orchestra 2 for pc and on the page it says usually despatched within a month that's probably because the hut wouldn't of bought batches of that game as hardly anyone would of bought it, but with GOW3 they will buy quite allot of stock,as they know that people are going to be pre ordering it if its a good deal. I would only recommend them for quite a big release!
Not something like Red Orchestra that ive never heard of before i searched it up
