I ask this as I have pre-ordered COD:MW2 from them and really do not want any delays in receiving the game :P

you should maybe ask before you pre-order next time lol

hey

Im in the same boat and called them today, they advised me that they use royal mail delivery and that they will be sending iton friday so im not holding out much hope as the strike is on friday and monday.

Sorry!

From my experience Tesco are crap with pre-orders. I pre-ordered Uncharted 2 the other week and on launch day they still didn't dispatched the game so I cancelled my order and bought instore from Asda instead.

more strikes, damn Royal Mail, and by friday delivery do you mean this friday 6th Nov?
hmmm i reckon ill pre-order from ShopTo.net instead, even if it is another £7 or so, they use UKMail i think? Also I pre-orderd Uncharted 2 and Tekken 6 from them to receive both 3 days earlier than release date!!

I think you have to pay £1.99 or £2.99 extra for UK Mail to deliver it (from shopto.net)

"At warehouse - dispatching soon"

This item is awaiting dispatch from the warehouse and should be delivered soon.

It's either in the Goole warehouse or Milton Keynes

If you look on Tesco Directs Website you will see they are not using RM, so therefor strike will not affect your order.
