Will GAME deliver on release day with free delivery pls?

Hi
Does anyone know if you pre order with game and use the standard delivery will the game get to you on day of release.
I am wanting to order Little Big Planet 2 for my sons which is due on on the 21st (Friday) of this month. Their standard delivery is free however I can change this to Express supposedly one working day but it will cost me nearly £5. As they want the collectors edition this makes it a lot of money.
I don't usually pre order. Anyone used them before with the free delivery. Thanks.

With the exception of one order from the many I have placed in the past, all my pre-orders at GAME.co.uk have arrived 2 or 3 days *before* the official European release date. The one exception arrived on the day of release.

I only ever choose the "2-3 Business Days" (free) delivery option.

Why not visit a GAME or a Gamestation store on the day & collect one in person? You can order for collection in-store if it reassures you that they will not have sold out of the normal store allocation.

In my experience it's normally in my grubby hands a day early for pre-orders

At the end of the day Royal mail can still manage to deliver late, no matter the best intentions of online retailers.

This will be £17.99 in a matter of weeks. Just a warning, games like this go cheap quickly.

Thanks guys that's quite reassuring. Unfortunately not going into town for a while so pick up is not an option. (country bumpkin)
I know Adam but its their choice. They have saved their Christmas money and for once have agreed to share the game and the cost so I am going with the flow. Thanks for your input though I had mentioned that to them. I think the first game went as low as £6.99 at one point.
Funnily enough in December they went back to playing the first one.

shopto are good for delivering earlier and are slightly cheaper

I don't think this one will tank as sharply as the first as it's quite widely anticipated

got mine for £9.99 within about a month of release!

"LittleBigPlanet 2 sponsors movies on [Channel 5] Five" so perhaps the advertising budget is going to be a) bigger, & b) used, this time around.

My kids still go back to the original release every couple of weeks to create new levels or play online but I did not feel the need to re-buy as "LittleBigPlanet: Game Of The Year Edition".

Have your sons played the Trial (Beta) version of "LittleBigPlanet 2" available from PlayStation Store, Goofeys Girl?

Or "Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves"?

Yes, a day early for the UK release.

Hopefully the game servers will be operational already, but you may like to warn your kids (to avoid disappointment) that the full use of the online experience may not be available until tomorrow.

If you have the time please let me/us know what they think of the new features of the game-play.

Thanks.
