Still no smash. And no sign at sorting office - there for 40 mins this morning. Yet can't report lost until next week. I've sent in an email as personally I don't believe you ever sent it out. No photo in the order page and no record of it ever turning up at the sorting office (I know the postman) seems very dodgey. So I'm 45 quid down, Prob won't get to play before Christmas now and about to cancel all pre orders and order elsewhere. Not a happy person today...... Other than that, all weekend watching the yogscast live streams and playing persona 4 golden. Tried the free plants vs zombies too

Played a bit of Destiny and actually played on my xbox one for the first time in ages kicked my friends butts at Worms. But did run into a problem with the achievements as they were popping and cant open achievement app or go to achievements on the xbox website tried all sorts of fixes but nothing works.

Morning all, myself pretty much playing my 3ds on pokemon x but other than that not much other gaming. Since my tv has yet to be repaired hopefully i will hear back from the repair company today. In other news my peach amibo has still yet to be posted by royal snail if i don't receive it by wednesday then i will have to fill out an lost claim form. "sigh"

Looks like I'm not the only one who's having problems with an order not arriving then, seems as though something went wrong somewhere along the line & some orders were never dispatched. Disappointing.

Fezza no your wrong there. The problem is royal mail has been backlogged with tons of mail since the monday before black friday & still are backloged. With that and x-mas gifts/parcels there's no surprise of a delay coz of royal mail not shopto.

Yeah, that's what they want you believe, but I've ordered stuff since that have turned up the next day with Royal Mail. Plus, mine was a preorder that was released last Friday & wasn't even marked as dispatched until 3 days AFTER release date, still haven't had the "release date or compensate" credit I was promised either. Apparently there was a problem with the Shopto systems, so I'm guessing that they haven't a clue which orders have really been dispatched or not from that time, so the easiest & cheapest way for them to go about it is to just wait a week & see who puts a lost parcel claim in & blame it on Royal Mail in the process.

Fezza that's your put of view ok. I also had pre orders you know & some arrived earlier then others but the earliest posted one turned up before the latest posted pre order. Also i have talked to my post man & an royal mail manager about the delay on delivery's. And they even admitted they had an backlog & an overflow of mail/parcels with x-mas & black friday.

Royal Mail is seriously fucked up at the moment, I've been having international post arrive quicker than stuff sent by Royal Mail within the UK. Just today I got my New 3DS charging cradle that I ordered from Japan last Wednesday, plus a letter from the DWP telling me about my imminent DLA Christmas bonus, which I got last Tuesday.

Morning all. Still not got my LBP3 order and I place no blame on ShopTo. They're an online store who have to rely on Royal Mail to also hold up their end. Bear in mind, you also had a choice of delivery and if you really wanted security and guarantees for arrival, DPD was available (at cost). I'll just have to wait the 15 days to fill in a lost parcel form (which I believe is shorter than many other online retail stores) and get it sent out again. That's the risk associated with *anything* ordered online.

The Lizard squad are claiming there gonna take down xbox live down forever on Christmas day. The limited edition ps4 sold out in minutes in the US.

@bind, they've proven they're capable of doing it in the past so i wouldn't be suprised to see this happen. Think of all the upset squeky children on christmas day... won't bother me i'll be chilling on the beach getting smashed.

Be interesting to see if there all mouth and no trousers. Claiming they took down PSN last night. It could be them taking credit for general downtime so least this time they have given advance warning of their intentions.

@bind they're as legit as they come. The other month they where calling out companies they where going to take down and they followed through with each and everyone of them

not when people were blaming Black friday - yet my sorting office said they had everything sorted by saturday. Plus I can't even re-order the game until they agree to refund me which isn't going to be until mid next week. I've had Smash on order since it appeared on here to order and waited ages for it, then it finally comes out and nothing - also crap support from these guys. Then Lara croft still showing processing even though showing as in stock so that probably wont even come tomorrow either. I'm better off just getting games on release from the shop on the way home. Plus its not chrismas yet - if it was closer I would understand it, but its still early - all other items i ordered in the last week have came superfast from all companies.

plus the 'guarantee to have on release date' is BS. just the fact it doens't tell you that you need to have the royal mail tracking number to claim it - exp when on the order page it says 'ANY order is covered' - which is a lie and they worm their way out of giving compensation every time. Really annoying.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
