    I used a 10% code, they were/are cheaper/around the same price as Amazon, and I wanted to give them a try as I had heard good things about them.

    My copy arrived this morning. The packaging has a Citypost label stuck on top of a Royal Mail postage mark, so fuck knows what that's about.

    Crisis averted.

    My postman has just come. Still won't consider using them again as that's 2 late pre-orders now.

    My copy turned up from Zavvi yesterday. I had the email they they'd dispatched it earlier in the week and my friend said to expect it to be late but it turned up. I'd heard that some retailers had an agreement not to send the game out early but don't know if Zavvi/The Hut were included in that or if it's just the sheer number they had to send out taking time?

    I'd say the first week sales for this game will be fantastic. FAN, are you getting the 360 or PS3 version? I've heard the PS3 deliveries had setback after setback leading to hardly any being available.

    I got the 360 version, luckily. Might have had to wait till during the week if it was for PS3.

    Anyone else used this lot recently?

    I ordered Forza 3 from them on the 27th for peanuts (15 knicker) and it had an estimated dispatch date of today. It's been awaiting stock pick all this time and still no sign of life.

    I know, it's not late yet and I know you get what you pay for but have I picked a shit shop? I usually use Amazon and thought the days of waiting a week for anything were long gone.

    I use them all the time and the latest I've had something turn up was the Monday after a release day, they seem to be using a different delivery method these days and things always appear on time for pre-orders (RDR, Crackdown 2 and Splinter Cell Conviction for example).

    The next test will be Mafia 2, fingers crossed!

    Probably already been answered but do they take the money when you preorder a game or on the dispatch date

    Cheers

    Bit worried because I bought two 2100 cards off them, they were dispatched at the same time but i've only received one :p

    Gotta wait 10 days before can say anything though :(

    Speak the truth hussy!

    okay the hut effed up bad. i preordered assassin's creed brotherhood codex edition. now almost two weeks after the release date and lots of messages they tell me "this game is no longer available to buy", meaning that because of them i lost the opportunity to get it. except from scalpers of course.

    what do you think can i demand of them? in an ideal world those idiots should be forced to buy it from a scalper and sell to me for the price i preordered for, but this isn't an ideal world, is it?

    Anyone had any recent experience with The Hut? Thinking of pre ordering Medal of Honor and BO II. Are they good for getting it to you on release days?

    They've got my last couple of pre-orders to me on release day. They're decent, somewhere between the extremes of shopto and zavvi.

    I don't use them any more of course, their customer services is fucking abysmal and I'd rather spend a bit more money and buy from somewhere else.
