All thanks to tesco saying "we will guarantee that your order should be shipped today" that was yesterday and that guarantee is now broken. I pre-ordered GTA V collector's edition 2 months ago and in that time my order status has not changed a bit, it even still says "created".

What's worse is that they took the money right when I pre-ordered so I thought that would guarantee me my copy on the day or 16th.

I feel so let down and cheated as all I got left with is a false sense of hope and an overdraft fee.

Eat crap and die tesco |_()

This was exactly how I felt last year with Greenmangaming and Black Ops 2. I fucking hate how they guarantee release day delivery and then just blame the mail service when it doesn't arrive

I think that's why you're better off with a smaller (but not too small) specialist, like ShopTo etc.

Yeah so they cancelled it without telling me. Was a bit pissed off about the slight panic they caused me but still I'm relieved. Got a full refund plus £10 compensation.

Went to earlier Stratford to see whether they had any special editions left and it was packed to hell so I had to go to Camden and managed to pick one up. Even though it cost me £59.99 I didn't really care as long as I had GTA V.

For blops 2 I never preordered and went into my local 24 hour tesco and got it from there with a half price psn voucher for the same cost of what it was online and I was the only person in the store buying as everyone I know had preordered online, so now I see what deals I can get on release day as stores round my way want cash in the tills

Oh and as a little added bonus they decided to include a free normal version of GTA V. :-D
