Will Amazon price match this before release? Might have to switch my preorder.


I highly doubt it. They only seem to price match Argos at times, but their games are generally sold at a higher price these days.

Probably not. You can get Quidco cashback with Shopto too.

Don't buy from Amazon.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Preorder cancelled, I went with them initially because they were the only ones to add the game to their website.

Do you have a confirmation yet? Or a pending transaction on the payment card? I don't and getting a tad worried.

I don’t think I got an email either but when I look in my account at pre-orders it does say my pre-order is confirmed (I have also paid for it up front)

I've received no communication. Got a penny taken off my CC as pre payment when I ordered but that's it.

Sorry tell a lie, just checked and I did receive a confirmation email as soon as I ordered.

Oof. Looks like mine didn't go through then. Just ordered through Currys since their £5 code works with it, knocking it down to £45.

Word of warning with Currys, it might be worth putting a cushion or pillow on the floor under the letterbox if you have a hard floor as they haven’t used padded envelopes or cardboard boxes when I’ve ordered from them, just a bag...which is ideal for a cracked case.

Yeah, seems to be common, lots of complaining about it on HUKD. Thankfully my last game from there survived the experience. I've also got paper Mario from them on the way since I got a fiver off, so hopefully both arrive ok.

But please also be careful not to lie down and fall asleep on the pillow, otherwise the delivery will hit you on the head. Stay safe x

Was it listed in the pre-orders section of your account? I didn't get a confirmation email from Shopto either but it's there and paid for.

I must have tried to checked out as a guest because when I tried to log in it said I didn't have an account associated with my email address.

Yeah all the big guys will always try to push the envelope in a contract negotiation. Weird thing here is we've got far bigger clients than the client this 60 page contract was agreed with so I don't know why it was waived through.

Sixty-page contract? Bloody hell, ShopTo have changed a bit since I last ordered with them.
