I've just been reading about this online, and it would be nice if there was some kind of clarification from the powers that be as to whether or not we will be affected by it.
For anyone who isn't aware, Amazon have dropped their contract with Royal Mail and switched to the Home Delivery Network due to the threat of upcoming strikes.
I have a couple of games pre-ordered through Amazon, and my experience with the HDN is less than stellar, so it would be of great interest to know exactly what's happening as I've read conflicting reports as to what kind of packages are affected by this, some sites mentioned it would only be packages weighing more than 500 grams, which I'm thinking would mean games would still be dispatched using Royal Mail...
The strikes of course will affect any site using Royal Mail, but Amazon are the first to take such definitive action, which is why I think some clarification would be helpful.
