Sorry for the deeply unsexy thread, but just wondering if Tesco are any cop for pre-orders.|
Specifically, if you pre-order online can you choose to collect at a Tesco branch of your choice on release day?

Please can we rename this thread

Depends on the games popularity a lot of the time.
I've known people pre-order with Tesco's, gone to pick up the game either on the day of release or even at a midnight launch and come away empty handed. I think it's the same problem with a lot of supermarkets though, they don't seem to fully understand the supply and demand thing when it comes to games just yet.
I was meaning more through the click-and-collect thing on Tesco Direct. I'm sort-of tempted to switch my Destiny pre-order across from Amazon because of this deal (Ł40 using voucher code, including free headset). But certain alarm bells are ringing.

I've had a few things (GTA Collectors ED, GTAV and Fifa, so all big names) from them and they've been delivered a day before release.
I think the one or two things I have ordered from them came on release day, but I do have another couple of things ordered with them. Mostly due to money off vouchers from them, making it cheaper than ordering elsewhere.
I can live with not getting it the day before release for some games. Other games I want asap get ordered elsewhere.

@Vortex808 where do u order from normally for day before release? I want destiny as early as possible, was thinking gameseek.com but not sure if anywhere will get me the game early as it's released on a Tuesday..
Not sure how gameseek are, but I'm sure someone will pop in and tell you.
I usually go with simply games these days if I want it early. Had most from them a day or two before release. ShopTo and Game used to be the regular ones I used, but the last few I ordered from ShopTo all came on release day.
