    Whatever happened to the good ole days when people went to buy it from a shop. Stress free, you know when you'll get the game, sorted done and dusted. Baffling/

    Those hazy days disappeared when online retailers undercut the prices of highstreet retailers and offered a better all round service

    Their original target for dispatch was 29/10 according to my account page, well ordering from The Hut anyway but they own/operate Zavvi. I expect the emails we've all received are automated ones sent after missing a target date by a certain amount of time. They don't dispatch from the Channel Islands like Play, if memory serves, so they've got a little while to get them in the post.

    The Hut group have always got the game to me on day of release in the past, so I'm not worried about the email.

    Hopefully this isn't the start of all the Zavvi bashing we saw last year Not that I'm accusing you of bashing them, but now we've got a bandwagon for people to jump on.

    Thank god I don't have to travel to England just to buy a game that doesn't get released here ;)

    As for the Zavvi mail: I didn't get one. It only says 'processing' on Zavvi. So with a bit of luck I might get FM11 at the same time as the people that will receive it delayed in England

    When i got to game or amazon website it says rrp £39.99.............which is too much, but they are selling for 27-29 quid. Is this because it's a pre-order, or if i go to the store and pick up will it be £40?

    Maybe i'll just steam it, £5 difference is hardly earth shattering

    yer but if its like last year, the data will be the last thing you care about. 3 or 4 30 yard long shot goals from a player with 5 for long shots will soon get old :P

    im a little hopefull of an early release. i seen somewhere, that someone said it will still be released on the 5th, but if its available online for free, from what i hear its the boxed version of the full game, and stores are alledgedly(sp) selling the game in spain or belgium or poland or wherever, and the games are in the stores sittin in boxes, why not just make the call or send the email or whatever and start makin some cash for themselves. also a guy in a well known game shop told me a couple of years back when i was buyin fm06 or 07 or somethin, its was actually a couple of days before the official release date(i didnt know), coz some other shop sold a copy of it earlier that week everyone just start sellin it coz he said they couldnt get in trouble, only the fool who sold the first copy. so come on si or whoever i need to ask, release the game.

    ps. i opted out of downloading the game for free out of respect for what the lads at fm do every year for us. thanks a lot. cant say i wasnt tempted though, i know of at least 12 people who took it off the net today an another 3 or 4 who could of too, these guys would of all bought the game on friday, but lookin forward as usual to buyin my copy whenever its out. wish i could play it now though lol.

    Yep, we have been getting screwed for years.
    It's disgusting that we have to pay twice as much as everywhere else in the world, and I've never seen a decent excuse as to why it happens.

    Idiots will occasionally say something about EB and other stores not making much profit off it, if we can order it online for around $40 then they could too. Buying in bulk they should even get a better price.
    Either the games companies, distributors or our own government are ripping us off. The government may have some sort of tax on them that I don't know about, although they were all supposed to go with the GST, yeah right.
    The old excuse was our weak dollar, well that was ages ago, we're nearly the same as the US dollar now, yet are still paying twice as much as everyone else.

    I know we should all just order online, but I've stopped using my credit card as I need to bring it down a bit. So I was waiting for it to pop up in JB, but if it's over $80 I'm not buying it on principal. No game should be released for more than $Au50, that's still more than what everyone else in the world pays.

    And they wonder why there's illegal copies out there.

    It will be £29.99 in shops I think for the hard copy. I'd be surprised if anyone sells it for RRP. Although I'm sure I'll be proved wrong now

    Why would you want it 1 or 2 days early? You wont play it as the patch wont be out, and can you really not wait 1 more day? I'll be getting it from the shop where i'll be garenteed it!

    Not strictly true, some things that are set up when you create a new game may affect that save for the duration of the game, and can't be changed with the patch.

    It's always best - not essential, but best - to start a new game post-patch, which is why many people do this.

    Why not? Is there something important in the patch that makes the game unplayable? I havent noticed any earth shattering bugs in the demo and since the full game is made from the same code it should be good enough. And besides the patch works on older save games.

    Anyway...i pretty sure my game is going to arrive long after the patch has been released. Oh well..its cheaper to order online than to buy locally.

    Last year I went to my local ASDA at about 8am, they'd not received their supply yet. Nor had Morrisons around the corner. I went off to work, and at lunchtime popped into the ASDA there. They'd had a supply and sold out, but were expecting another batch "sometime this afternoon". I went back after work at 5pm, and bought the last copy they had.

    That's why I've gone back to internet shopping this year!

    see i shop for games at an actual game store where you can preorder and guarantee your copy instead of going to a supermarket and hoping they have it on the shelf.

    Still i can see the up sides of getting it online, i would just hate sitting at home waiting knowing that "i could have been playing now if i had gone to the shops"

    Huh?

    No update on their website yet. If they get it in stock today, they will probably start dispatching today. If not, then tomorrow. If not tomorrow, then thursday. Just have to wait really.

    They'll probably get it tomorrow with a thursday arrival, that tends to be the norm from my experience. Play takes several days to arrive anyway.

    I think it'll be £29.99
    Personally I'd say online shops are saying the RRP is £40-ish so they can pretend they are offering a good deal for pre-orders when it's just the same as buying it on release

    I believe some did the same last year, and I never saw a single shop sell it for more than £30 after release
    And if it is £40 this year... no chance I refuse to pay more than £30 for a game unless the casing is made from pure platinum and the manual paper made from the P. baylisiana tree

    when I preorder from shopto, I normally get my dispatched email on Tuesday evening, around 7pm and it normally arrives on the Thursday (I live in Northern Ireland), so could be quicker for those of you on the mainland. So I wouldn't be too worried if you have ordered from shopto.

    IMO these kind of problems (and struggling to find it on the high street) are really what makes Steam such an attractive way to purchase games. Of course it does have its drawbacks too.

    Ok, I found a local shop selling the game and I'm picking up my copy after work.
    my question: will I be able to register on Steam tonight? Or will I have to keep the disc in until friday?

    cheers

Some (very much not all) Tesco stores are also offering a free pizza to those who buy at midnight, I'm told, but again, SEGA are the people with those details.

    I think for those getting the game early, you can just play it straight away with the disk in the drive like last year. No need to use Steam at all.

    2 shops in Oosende; try to avoid the big ones (mediamarkt, FRS, gamemania, etc): try in toy shops with lady-staff
    They're not fully aware of "release dates" and just tell you; 'yeah, it's in'...

    edit: also shops in Hasselt are selling and 1 in Antwerp

    Play have shipped mine today, they usually take 4/5 days to get things to me so looks like I won't have it until Monday.

    That said, in the past I have always got FM from play and they have been a day early, so heres to hoping!

    Must say that I am shocked by how long it seems to take play to deliver to some people. How can it take three days longer to get somewhere than it does to get to me. I know I'm south coast but another 3 days for someone that lives anywhere else in England seems crazy,

    As far as I'm aware, they put all the items onto a ship which brings everything to the mainland, and then it's carried forward from there by Royal Mail as second class post. Theoretically, everyone should get their items within 2 or 3 working days of it reaching the mainland. Getting it the day after seems very lucky!

    Surely youd get a dispatch email, with Fifa 11 they didnt email due to the sheer quantity of orders they had to get sent out, but FM11 wont be anywhere near the same imo. Think the best thing to do Richard76 mate is ring them to see if they got stock in, if they have, could well have been dispatched.

    If hmv.com says it's 'Now Shipping' FM11 then, when, do you reckon it will get to their shops ? at one of which I have the game pre-ordered.
