youve no chance with the super saver, even first class it might be a day late. if you want guarantee of release day delivery you gotta get the most expensive one... cant remember what it called now lol but thats the only way im afraid.
Personally i don't think people who don't pay for delivery will have it on release day, because anyone who has paid for the fasted delivery will have been cheated on the costs, maybe the day after release but i wouldn't say same day imo
I've ordered games with the first class option and got them a day before release before now, it's luck y'know.
To A. Roberts if you want it (pretty much) guaranteed to get to you the day before, the day of release, or the day after you are better of sticking with first class, super saver delivery is not as reliable to get to you on those dates and depending on the item and how many orders there are it may come later due to prioritising of higher cost postage services. It's only a couple of quid, but by the same merit it's only a day (or two, if any at all), it's your call.
One point - Remember that because we all pre-ordered it; it was also about £20 cheaper than it is being sold now. I could have pre-ordered from GAME at full price and got it on the day of release at 9:00am garunteed (obviously I would have to wake up early)
I pre-ordered on the 2nd of February for the collector's ed of the guide (super saver delivery) and collector's ed of the game (first class) and in my recent orders it's just changed in the last couple hours to say:
"We are preparing these items for dispatch and this portion of your order cannot be cancelled or changed."
Awesome, looks like it's been posted out today regardless of super saver delivery or first class. Sweet!
I ordered first class a few days ago and it says they are preparing for dispatch with estimated delivery of March 10th... I would say been with Amazon for years and most of the time the item arrives a day earlier than estimated. This is just to cover themselves as 1st class isnt guaranteed in 24 hours. Fingers crossed!
About what I said earlier, the one I ordered with super saver delivery was sent with the courier HDNL (hdnl.co.uk) and the other I ordered was with royal mail first class, so super saver delivery may be faster or slower (I'm gonna assume probably a day slower as HDNL has done nothing with my package so far according to their traffic system).
