Well recently I preordered Infamous: Second Son and Destiny through Video Game Box for just under £75. I went to the bank yesterday to find that some money was missing from my account, as I checked the site I realized they took the money from my account already.

Your credit card will be charged soon as you purchase an item. This includes pre-orders.


WTF DESTINY DON'T EVEN COME OUT TILL SEPTEMBER?! |_() absolute bollocks so I will be getting the game but now I'm left poorer as a result of that. Plus I can't even cancel

I was going to pre order Infamous off of that site, but I saw it took the money out straight away so I didn't. Don't like my money going somewhere when the product could easily get delayed and is over a month away.

Had i read into it then I would have stayed away and pre-ordered from amazon or game but stupid me saw a nice shiny bargain and didn't read the instructions.

I almost did as it was very cheap, but also had never used that site before so I def wasn't giving cash upfront.

Oh matey.

Daz and myself made the decision not to post those VideoGameBox pre-order deals because of the taking money on order thing.
We don't like it, we decided it was not 'sound', so whereas all the other sites started posting that stuff, we stayed away.

Wish you had spoken to us :-|

trust me in the future I will never pre-order from them no matter how cheap they go. not sure whether to be depressed at my almost empty wallet or pissed at them for ripping me off.

once infamous arrives in the mail then at least part of my stress will go but until then I'm just hoping a delay doesn't come for either game otherwise I'm out of pocket on both for nothing.

because of them I basically can't buy anything in the February psn sale as whatever money I got on me and in the bank I have to live on

Always ask us matey... We may be twats, but we never put deals up we're suspect of or without letting people know it's money up front.

Other sites might and reap rewards of the traffic, we wont. (even when we have 'good' relationships with the said retailer).

One of the reasons I use Amazon mainly for pre-orders is that they don't take the money until they pick the order.

Another is that if the price drops before dispatch, they charge you the lower price, but if it goes up, you only pay what you agreed.

I really don't understand where companies get off taking your money up to a year in advance! |_()

Although its too late now it is always worth asking on here about pre ordering from places. Between us we have pretty much ordered from everywhere on the Internet so someone will be able to help

With all distance selling you have a certain amount of time to request a refund.

Like Lee said, we didn't add any of the pre-order deals because of this. I tend not to do it for the other retailers like Tesco and Argos that do the same thing.

But like you've said yourself, you should always check these things first to save any problems
