    Completely off topic, but playstation plus is going to be even more (if possible) fantastic value, if you own all 3 Sony devices

    I feel cheeky downloading the games as it is ( probably what being a 7+ year Xbox live user has done to me :) )

    @NeverEatYellowSnow I've been using Game for years. I used to use them for all my pre-orders and they always got them to me a day early. It's only in the last few years that I started using ShopTo - they were often a little cheaper, and they used to get games to me two days before release (no longer, though). I was still using Game for the odd exclusive limited edition up until they cancelled my Mass Effect 3 LE about a week before release. To be fair, they were going down the crapper at the time, and EA pulled the plug, but I've only used them once since (to get Virtua Tennis on the Vita for a fiver).

    So I'm feeling a little relieved now, as I cancelled my backup order with ShopTo a few days ago!

    @Ror1984 shopto are a little hit and miss for me, I put it down to my sorting office as I've had a few games turn up late or not at all.

    I've switched to simply games since, only ordered 4 things but been faultless so far, hope it arrives in time for you :)

    Cheers, same to you!

    I've just checked my ShopTo account - 1,900 worth of purchases (they really shouldn't tell you how much you've spent :( ) and I've not had a single problem. I'm sure I'm due one :p

    Christ I wish you hadn't said that, I've just gone and had a look at how much I've spent.

    Almost 4.5k....my only defence is that I've been with them pretty much since they started...but still that's actually mental.

    Also never had a problem with them in all that time.

    I'd still use ShopTo, it's just whenever I pre order a top new release it never usually arrives, I thought they sent an email with a pic of the game in an envelope just for my benefit haha.. :D

    Phew. Friend who has the game tells me that a lot of the spoilers floating around are early-game/not of high importance. Turns out the big one that I'd seen was an only an hour or so in.

    Sony took my money this morning. I wonder when it'll start downloading. So far, it's only the 200 odd MB installer that's available.

    @Gambit1997


    So, you have it, in your hand, right now? And you're going to start playing today? I think I hate you just a little bit at this particular moment. :-)

    @f311 - This is my first experience of ShopTo, I thought I'd give them a go and see if I could get this a day early. Order is still processing, so I'm not holding out much hope.

    It seems to be fairly pot luck whichever store you choose though.

    I've only ever used shopto a couple of times prior to this, and both items were received prior to release day.

    However, I have heard a lot of people saying how their service has slipped as they have become more popular. To be expected I suppose.

    I've not tried Simplygames yet. If Shopto don't get this one out on time I'll give them a go next time.

    The picture of my package has been there since yesterday, so I'd be suprised if they didn't get it out the door today. So should get it Friday latest!

    just in case you weren't aware. Its from 'the makers of uncharted' plastered on the box :-)

    Think its time to stop playing state of decay and try this bad boy out.

    Ah, no installation necessary. I'm surprised at that. Back of the box says 720p only but that's no biggie. First time loading takes a minute or two, but...ooooh

    Yeah, if they mess this up, I won't use them again, simples.

    Order is 'completed'. Whatever that means.

    Oh, I see they post a pic of your package(ooh er), they posted it yesterday apparently. I'll shut up now.
