Friday Chat, September 13


It's Friday, so what are you gaming plans for the weekend? It doesn't look like you'll be playing GTA V since it's not out until next Tuesday.

So what are you up to then? Another other games grabbing your attention?

Let's Chat!

*WARNING FOLKS" If you use online sites/chat like IGN, Twitter, Facebook, it looks like some people have received their copies of GTA V today, whether they have picked it up from independent shops, some claiming their copies have arrived from places like GAME etc but some are posting SPOILERS so be careful.... My weekend plans, well the wife is away on a course, daughter is staying with friends, so I'm going to catch up on some films I've missed, probably do the garden if the rain holds off, hope you all have a lovely weekend :o)

I'm playing Splinter Cell - Blacklist on 360 and finally got in to AC3. Connor is a wanker, but the game isn't as bad as I first thought it was. Should tide me over until Tuesday

Well I have too many options this weekend have to choose between Killer is Dead, Wonderful 101, Everybodys Golf (does anybody play that here?) Tales of Xillia, Puppeteer and Kingdom Hearts probably sit there for an ages trying to decide and end up play none.

Try to play a bit more of Hyperdimension Neptunia MK2 but I'll most likely spend the majority of the weekend Watching Hayate no Gotoku (Hayate the Combat Butler) and watching Peeve play whatever game he decides to Stream

Dont really read comments on the other sites so I should be ok at avoiding spoilers. I will be on some FF14 and some more Diablo on the 360 as well. I am still working my way through splinter cell.

Also a couple of new stories I read yesterday apparently some games have disappeared off of xbox live some old and new they are looking into it. Also Sony have said that they will be holding a set amount of consoles back from preorders to sell nearer christmas which seems a bit silly as wouldnt the ones that had preordered and not got one yet get first choice of the next batch that comes out so would it not be easier just to sell them all at once.

Finish of Saints Row 4, other than that not sure, maybe replay some of Wonderful 101 and Killer is Dead to unlock some more stuff, might have another bash at Rayman Legends, see if I can get over its banality.

I have GTA on order from here and Amazon (one is for my sister) so whichever one comes first is mine. Strangely when I check my order here it is saying processing but when I check the app on my phone it says dispatched.

The app isn't working properly according to support. You need to wait for a email that says it's been dispatched.

You do realise that if they post it tonight or tomorrow you could still have it on Monday... which is still before release. Very frustrating that other companies are sending it out and shopto aren't (or at least won't admit to sending them out ;-) )

As long as i get it on release date I will be happy. It usually is early i got Diablo on the saturday when it came out on the tuesday.

Shopto has gotten a bit worse since I started using them, I'm not saying they're bad, but at one point I was getting games on a Wednesday when it was due for release on a Friday, and I used to get games the next day after dispatch, but over the last few months it seems to have been all over the place, I've had a couple of delivery's take two days and arrive on release some not arrive until a couple of days after release, and I'm still waiting on the Walking Dead survival instinct and Remember me to arrive even though they were preordered.

Amazon has been out of 360 stock since lunch time... it says they are awaiting inventory before they can process more orders
superniceguy's avatar
superniceguy 3 years ago
When release dates are on Mon or Tue and shopto dispatch on Friday, it does not get delivered until Wednesday, but if they dispatch Mon, it arrives Tue. Royal Mail is always slower over the weekend. Also lately they have been delivering late around 4pm, when used to be around 11am.

It makes no difference whether you receive the dispatch email from Shopto today. They will be held back until Monday. That's the way they do things for big Tuesday releases.

Amazon can afford to dispatch early cos they are too big to be blacklisted, Shopto are still small
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Also where did you get the idea that if you pay more you will get the game early?
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 3 years ago
Amazon may well of despatched them but they might be being held somewhere I have had that with Gears 3 Epic edition it was dispatched 5 days early and held at courier till release date. Rockstar have told retailers not to post before the 16th. So Amazon could be in a bit of trouble with Rockstar if there breaking it.
superniceguy's avatar
superniceguy 3 years ago
I don't think when Amazon say it has been dispatched it has actually been dispatched. Amazon and Zavvi always seem to take a few days more to deliver than Shopto. Chances are that Amazons orders are sitting and waiting to be collected on Monday. Even if dispatched today from shopto it is not guananteed to arrive Sat or Mon, as I said before Royal Mail were slow, and I did not get items until Wednesday, but they have usually turned up Tue if dispatched Monday.

You normally do Scott what your missing is this is not a Shopto decision its a Rockstar Decision not to send them out early if Rockstar hadnt said anything Shopto would be despatching them today or tomorrow.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
You usually do get games a day before street date (Or even two in the case of 1.5 Remix) but Rockstar has asked for the game not to be shipped till Monday and it's different to the COD Ghost situation cos Acti told them not to send it out till the street day (Meaning you don't get it on release)

It's not like you don't have anything else to do. Try picking up a game out of your backlog and playing that or watch the stuff you have recorded on TV
superniceguy's avatar

Amazon have been doing a promotion on preorders, where you can choose First Class free. Prime usually includes Next day delivery which is more guaranteed for next day than first class.

Yeah cause it would have been better having it today or tomorrow, wont get a proper crack at it till next weekend now!

I am not really fussed if it does not turn up until Tuesday or Wed as going to play Splinter Cell, Saints Row IV, Diablo and get 10 hours in of each, before their 30 days runs out. In the new Xbox rewards you get extra credit for playing a new game. At first I thought it was a new game to you, but it is a new game where you have put in 10 hours within 30 days of it released - only disc based releases count, not games on demand / arcade etc

Well I initially had a preorder with shopto. Then I saw it was cheaper on amazon, so I switched. Then I forgot to cancel my shopto order, so it went into processing. Too late to back out the order, so I switched back. I didn't want to go through the hassle of sending it back.
Dead's avatar
Dead 3 years ago
Think so Nox, they are calling it 'gauranteed release day delivery' or something, but all the games I've ordered when I was on Prime were switched to it and sent the day before release and arrived on time.

It's within a month of release Nox, not a week.
superniceguy's avatar

Maybe it gets added after the 30 days of the game being released, or has not gone through yet. It says it takes a few days to update. I did the survey and got 250 points, but it does not show up instantly.

I'm disappointed it wasn't dispatched today, when other companies are clearly breaking the timeframe Rockstar's put in place but I accept they may have more scope due to the size of their business. But I'm more disappointed that Shopto can't give you any sort of specific details about when they are shipping. What happened to the days when all the shipping details used to be on the forums so people could look it up? Now it's just scripted responses that leave the customer non the wiser.

Not only that when you get a pc game early you usually have to wait till release date as well if it is through steam so you have the game but can not play it.

To be honest, I think Microsoft have been getting better lately. Although I like and prefer Xbox over PlayStation, I've never really liked Microsoft as a company much, but they are improving, same with EA. Probably due to new people in charge.
