    Default If you want the game on Wednesday...

    Then order with Shopto.

    Shipping Next Tuesday Football Manager 2010 £ 22.85

    Choose the delivery as UK Mail (£1.99) and you'll get it next day.

    Is that seriously true? How are you so sure you'd get it Wednesday? Has that happened in the past for you?

    Yeah I got Forza 3 on Wednesday last week.

    Arrived next day every time except for Fifa 10 but that was due to strikes and there was no UK Mail option then.

    Qwerty1239 you think that it'll still ship on Tuesday considering you've just posted it on the SI forum and brought it to there attention?

    Do they deliver via the royal mail? If they do, I would guess that the royal mail have a massive back log of post so it might be difficult to get the game delivered this week.

    It's not even a bad thing looking at it from a certain point of view, I can't imagine too many people have ordered from Shopto, so a few people get the game on Wednesday, come on here raving about it, encourages more people to go out and get it on release day, win for SI, win for Shopto customers.

    and if you set up your mobile phone on the website, you can order via text, and get £1 off your next order! Handy if you always order from them.

    The site really is awesome, I got Uncharted 2 on the tuesday before release!!

    They're allowed to dispatch as soon as they get the game because of postal strikes which is Tuesday. But if you order it with the £1.99 UK Mail next day delivery it still get dispatched on Tuesday which means it will arrive the following day, Wednesday.

    Ok, thanks for clearing that up.

    I sadly can't preorder it via that site because I don't have any previous purchases through them (which is a prerequisite on their site to be able to preorder).

    1) Don't know if it's true mate
    2) I presume he means this Wednesday as if it was the following Wednesday then there wouldn't be a point in posting right?
    3) Postal strikes start on Thursday

    Thats the official release day for shops, online stores are supposed to send games so that they will arrive on release day, but it's not their fault if Royal Mail or whoevers delivering it deliver it early and because of the strikes sending it on Tuesday should see it arrive on the release day Friday, or you can go for the non strike option and have it Wednesday.

    and am i right in thinking that if you keep the disc in the drive there is no activation needed this year? so we can play as soon as we get it? but the people activating it through steam need to wait till friday to have it on more than one machine?

    I really want my Arsenal edition so i don't want to cancel it, but i'm fairly confident they aren't going to be posting it early seeing as they aren't a specialised online games retailer.

    I predict a week wednesday for the arrival of mine.
