Postal Strikes, Orders Shipping, Steam, when will I get my game - OFFICIAL

Recommended Posts

Still waiting on my copy from Zavvi, can't see it arriving today because I'm still waiting for some DVD's to arrive from Play that were posted 2 days before FM and our postman this week has only been bothered to deliver junk mail that's been dated the previous day. :rolleyes:

Yea that annoyed us yesterday too. We got loads of mail - all of it junk! And the things that we were actually waiting for didn't turn up.

If they outlawed junk mail I'm sure the postal service would be much better!

I'm very surprised that so many people have their copies today

I'm holding out no hope. Live (at uni) in damned Thornaby, just near Middlesbrough.

All bloody work shy here.

Don't tell anyone but there's this thing called a postal strike.

Some people are getting there's today though, which is good news. No sign of my postie yet.

I'm really quite fed up of seeing people complain about zavvi. I've seen all sorts of ridiculous comments from people complaining about the 3-5 days posting (despite the fact that it clearly says this at the checkout), blaming zavvi on the post not being delivered etc etc.

They are offering free postage because items come from Jersey (like Amazon, play etc etc) - hence if you live way up north you might be surprised to learn that it may take an extra day to get to you - even without a postal strike.

If you wanted to guarantee getting the game on release day, then you should have bought from a supplier that do not use royal mail to deliver. Or Parcel Farce for that matter :D

No because mail is kept at the sorting office and not the post office, isn't it?

I'm very envious of the guys who have received their copy today. The chances of a postman doing his round in my crappy town is zero. I'm tempted to go to the picket line and throw eggs at them.

Or just shout obscenities (it's the cheaper option).

No matter how much you paid, it's a pre-order! The whole point of it is that you get the game on the day. If Zavvi can't offer that then they need to put their prices up and use a courier. They shouldn't be offering cheap prices to use Royal Mail which they know won't be operating fully.

Ignorance abounds.

Zavvi will have an expensive contract with the royal mail (the whole hut group will). They can't just cancel that on a whim because of the strikes, as they would have to arrange a new deal with a different courier and pay compensation and so on and so forth.

You knew there were strikes, you chose to order from a company that uses royal mail to ship things from Jersey for free postage.

Not their fault, all your fault.

I agree entirely with you.

Have to wait til Monday evening now to play FM, that's if it comes on Monday at all! Never pre-ordering a game again in my life.

It's the worst thing watching everyone on the forums talk about the game when you don't have it and all you want to do is play the game.

My sentiments exactly. I bought from Zavvi & yes I'm still waiting, just show some patience for crying out loud....

Or UKMail, pay them 1.99 for next day delivery, they send an e-mail on thursday saying they will deliver friday and then they don't bother, last time I use them, I would of preferred them to tell me they wouldn't deliver on time rather than lie.

Like some others in here it was despatched on Wednesday by Zavvi and I am yet to recieve it. Got to blame Royal mail strikes, rather than Zavvi. Sodding postmen!

Bit that is really upsetting, as I can live without the game for a few days, is that I saw the game for sale in Sainsburys for £25.95. This is a mere £2 more than what I paid from Zavvi. Just cursing myself for try to be cheap.

From now on, I'm ordering my games from www.ShopTo.net because some people's games arrived on Wednesday who bought it from there! I can't believe I have to wait until Monday as a minimum! I'm going crazy and I have considered suicide.

I live in Turkey and in the past couple of years, the game hasn't hit the shelves until a week or two after the UK. For that reason, I ordered it from the local equivalent of Amazon who boasted on their website that their orders would be sent out on October 30th with same day/24 hour delivery for major cities. They also pointed out stores would not be selling the game before next week.

And what happened? Of course, an email comes saying the couldn't dispatch it on Friday and will be sending it on Monday instead. :( On top of that, I was in a store last night where they were selling the game - and 10 Lira cheaper too! :mad:
