Although I have purchased from Amazon UK normally with no issues at all I have not received any item that was a pre-release. I have paid the extra amount for the 1st class postage. So should I be getting my Playstation 3 (Special Edition) on the release date or do pre-orders for you usually arrive the next day? It seems odd that Amazon UK send out pre-orders the day before and not a few days ahead of the release date this would insure the game arriving for the launch date.
You know how big this game is going to be I know I want to be playing Grand Theft Auto IV on the release date and not having to wait the day after while everyone else is playing it.
