really?

Used them a couple of times and they always send out early. Had last 2 pre-orders 2 days before release date.

Will be using them for all my pre-orders now unless someone else offers an amazing deal.

ditto, had texts too to confirm :thumbsup:

Time for a rant, great site and good prices, sadly brother had his card details hacked from the site a couple of months ago and has about £800 taken from his account buying flights???? they have had their site hacked twice this year and 25,000 details were taken, would never use them again, im sure they are fine now but for a site to be hacked twice in a year is really worrying, i see the deals and some prices are great but tbh if they offered Modern Warfare 2 for £20.00 i wouldnt risk it, but as i said im sure they must have beefed up their security

Rant over:)

Word of caution

NEVER store your card details on any shopping site :thumbsup:

Thats shocking, i dont store my CC details on any site though. You cant trust anyone these days.

Im going to pre order PES 2010 and when the price drops from £42.99 COD MWF2

P,S....

Just noticed they give you £3 back if they miss delivery on release date.

doubt youll find anybody who will beat them for pre-release and speed of delivery tbh

retail stores cant sell them before release date as it flags up on the system and can get in trouble, we used to sell the bigger releases on a generic to people who asked then scan them thru on day of release but its dodgy, that was hmv years ago

Went to check and see if my details were stored there but they have this on their site now:

For added security we do not store your full credit card details.
We only store the last 4 digits of your card number to remind you which card you have previously used.

To add or change your credit card simply fill in/update all fields below.

Each time you change your card details they will be checked with our payment
provider by placing a £1.00 payment on your card .

The £1.00 transaction is immediately automatically refunded.

If your payment fails you will be returned to this page to correct your details.


So I guess they have taken measures to make sure it doesn't happen again which is good.

they can't be beaten for getting games out before release day, great service

i am not sure they have, dont even apologise on their site, just like cotton traders. had mine cloned and still isnt sorted. think its appalling. wont ever buy from them again. no respect, so no bargain worth hassle i had. wish anyone daft enough well

sorry think thats like flying pigs, once bitten twice shy. just waiting on the same nonsense again in a yrs time or less. if security was good wouldnt need to have this debit and refund business going on. two bites at the cherry not one. good luck op glad not u.
