I ordered Pokemon White on the 24th Feb with First Class delivery (guaranteed release day delivery on Friday 4th) and it still has not dispatched, infact it has not even been processed yet (I can still cancel and change details of the order).

I was wondering whether anybody with similar conditions had had theirs dispatched yet and whether I should be concerned about not getting my game delivered on release day as I paid for.

That's the problem with Amazon. Many people say that you never get pre-orders on the release day from amazon. It happened to me once but it did not really bother me. I cancelled my order from amazon and bought it from Shopto.net, even though it's a bit more expensive and i got an email saying they have dispatched the items via 1st Class Recorded so hopefully I'll get it tomorrow. But they can still dispatch it tomorrow and you may be lucky and get it on the release day.

Most likely though, they may post out your game tomorrow via 1st class post and you should get it on friday (depending if the post in yor area is good). Amazon should not lie to their customers, so if they promise release day post then they should honour that! Hope you get it by release day.

I preordered mine at Zavvi with 10% walkers code for Ł23.27 and I am suprised that my order has been dispatched earlier today.

I have ordered a lot of games pre-order with amazon and only had one turn up after the release date, most orders are processed the day before due to the license laws and contracts with the video games suppliers. Play.com a few years back got into trouble for dispatching games earlier than the release date.
I wouldnt worry to much as I have found amazon extremley efficient in dealing with pre-orders.
My order of this item has yet to be dispatched.

there is no release day guarantee on guide books and they will be dispateched on the release day not before, i ordered the guide with the game and that wont be dispatched till tommorow, they generally take longer to ship because they are larger and weigh more so it may take a while to get to you.
Recently i pre ordered the dead space 2 guide and it took 4 days after the release of the game to get to me.

I preordered both black and white and the guide, and the status for the games is dispatching soon whereas the guide still says not yet dispatched, but the games should come tomorrow, though ironically the one time I got a preordered game from Amazon that was a day late was Pokemon HeartGold and Soulsilver. But I do like to know where Amazon gets their delivery estimations from, because according to them Black and White will be dispatched for me tomorrow and arrive on the 8th XD

If thats for the guides it will be due to the size and weight and the fact that amazon uses royal mail. remember saturday and sunday dont count as working days for royal mail.

Actually the estimations was for the games aswell but I checked my orders and the games will be in a separate delivery from the guide so hopefully I can look forward to tomorrow.

My copies (both black & white) came yesterday, a day before the release date!! Have people who ordered the game from amazon got it today (release date)? I just wanna know so I know if I should pre-order from amazon in the future or not. Last time I pre-ordered a dvd on amazon it was through their merchant seller Indigostarfish and that came two days before the release date (since the release date was a Monday, I got it on the Saturday).

To anyone who got their games from Amazon, did yours get delivered via Royal Mail? Because mine's being delivered via Home Delivery Network Limited and last time I had a game delivered via that service (Halo Reach) it didn't arrive till 7:00 pm and I don't think I can wait that long.

Ordered back on 10th Feb, despatched on the 3rd and arrived today on the 5th using super saver delivery. Pretty happy with that as they estimated it wouldn't arrive until the 8th!

Haven t got the game yet but i am on the edge of my seat waiting

It's usually best to order from specialised game websites if you're desperate to games as soon as possible; you'll often get them the day before official release (at least I do).
Many game websites share the same online distributor however (inc. GAME).
