What places/websites do you reccomend that I pre-order FM09 from? I want them to be reliable so that the game is at my door on release day and as cheap as possible.

Thanks.

It's 30 on game, that's not as cheap as possible

thehut.com is the cheapest I've found, it's where I've pre-ordered from

Hopefully GAME will go down in price alot of there games usually do before release, also I've got 20 of points saved up.

I can't see it going below 25 on game, it never has done in the past. Anyway, if he had a load of game points saved up he wouldn't be here asking for another site to order from, he'd use game ;)

i dont get why people cant just get 30 together and pay it. its not alot tbh for a game you will play constantly. i know you want it cheaper but i would jus pay the little bit more and get it from play or tesco where i know it will arrive within 2 days of realease.

I would like to echo his question, actually. I'm in the US right now and I don't know how I'll pre-order it effectively...

I live in Hong Kong and it takes 1 week after the release date to be here in the local shops :( But they sell at only around $320 (around 23 British Pounds) :)

Is it hard to understand not everyone works for one reason or another, and even a lot of people who do work have other things to pay for (heard of bills and kids?), so paying 18 instead of 30 is a big deal

I personally always use Shopto.net, they haven't let me down in getting the game to me on or before release date for the past 2 years. :)

yes i have bills too, and too many of them at that. but 12 is really not alot just do an hours overtime at work, or dont treat the kids to that sky box office film that they won't shut up about lol.

i know people are very hard off sometimes, but its just 12 more to make sure you get it, who knows what the huts like

The hut is reliable, I don't order from sites unless I've heard good things. Anyway it's a redundant point now seeing as they put the price back up

play.com all the way, they have free delivery and always deliver a day earlier than release date in my experience.

For those who ordered it from thehut, be warned they may cancel your order as it was obviously put up with an incorrect price. I've seen it done before. Errors in data input can lead to them cancelling the order or charging you the full price. If you get it for 17.93 then your lucky, but I doubt they would unless it was down as a special offer price.

I'll keep my eyes peeled on this forum (as in previous years its been on the shelfs before the release date),jump in the car and head to meadowhall to buy it from one of the few computer shops there.That way I can be sure I'm playing it the first day its out.

They can't charge you extra once you order something. But yes they can cancel it

Perhaps they were only offering 17.93 for a set amount of orders. We'll see I guess

Play.com always on time/early and barely had a problem with them in years... There was one time where they decided to send me a used Mario Kart game with writing on the box which didn't work despite me ordering a brand new one.. but they did give me a discount on the game after and on the whole they provide great service.

I emailed the hut and asked whether we'll still pay 17.93 or if they will cancel it and make us pay the new price of 27.93, and received this

I can confirm that you will pay the price that was advertised when you placed the order.

Gameplay so messed up my order last time round (I got it here in Canada about 3 weeks after the official release date) that I've changed away from them after many years. This time I ordered it from the official site.

The previous year I got it from BlahDVD for 26pounds with no problem..
There is no pre-order yet available from them..

I've ordered it from Play, may not be the cheapest but I know I can rely on Play to get the game on the day of release. 30.

I'll probably use Play this year. Usually, I have ordered from Gameplay, but the last few orders from them have taken longer then I would expect so I think I'll give them a mss this time round.

I'll go with amazon this year.

I have amazon prime, so will receive it on the day of release, at work.

Plus if the price goes down from the current 30 they'll reduce the price. You always pay the lowest price the game has been since the date you pre order it with Amazon... Which is nice.

edit: If i had a game shop on the way home from work i'd take no risks and pick it up in person.:p

Thanks for all the input guys. Play seems like it may be the way to go for reliability eventhough it isn't the cheapest.

If any more people know anything about realiable and cheap sites then please post :).

I think there are quite a few people selling pre-orders for it on ebay so would look there if you want to pay via paypal.

I have to say I use Amazon for pretty much everything, except new versions of FM, which I get from play.com.

Amazon delivered the new copy of FM (I think it was FM2005) a couple of days after release date, wheras play have always been on or before release date.
