    Pre-odrdering from Zavvi

    1 week ago I pre-ordered Red Dead Redemption - Game of the year edition from Zavvi, and now almost 2 days after the release I still didn't get the email speaking about the dispatch (the release was on friday morning and my brother told me that in britian saturday and sunday are off).

    When I went to the game's page on Zavvi's site and I saw that the game was out of stock (!!!), I was enraged,
    I pre-ordered so you could send it fast and not to wait till you get the full stock.

    sent an email but still no reply from Zavvi.com

    anybody else can tell me what's going on?

    I have never heard of Zavvi......maybe you should find a more reputable place to pre-order games from such as Amazon.com

    I ordered Demon's Souls from Zavvi, and the game turned up a few days later.
    They might just be hugely outta stock. Try phoning?

    I buy all my games on zavvi, you'll get the e-mail when your game leaves their store, and don't worry, they are really trustable
    They never steal my money or don't send me the games I ordered

    The only reason I've heard of them is because of that extremely limited edition Metal Gear Solid HD Collection.

    My problem is that it takes so much time to send my game, because that is the reason i pre-ordered : to get it ASAP.

    I just don't get it, it doesn't say that the game is sold out so why can't we send it already?!

    Zavvi is virgin, it used to be called virgin megastores they were quite big, some reason they changed their name to that??

    Ive always found virgin/zavvi to be overpriced and have never ordered from there but i think HMV the best, for example i pre ordered green lantern blu ray out this coming monday and i had it thursday!!!!

    They are really good with pre orders and sending stuff out before release.

    Zavvi are not a great idea for pre-ordering games. I suggest game.co.uk for pre-orders and i know i have been saying i was going to avoid them in future because of the change in delivery services but i received my Dark Souls pre-order on day of release so they are still quite reliable.

    Try pre-ordering from GAME or HMV next time, at least with them you could possibly get the game early.

    Zavvi is a UK gaming site is it not? I pre-ordered Team Ico HD at the start of the year and it took them 7 days for it to arrive, one week after the release date... i pre-ordered Batman AC and U3 from them... i hope i get them on the release date, but i highly doubt it. I dont recommend Zavvi for pre-orders but they have great and cheap deals, get the games that are already out not pre-ordered.

    Your plat card shows as an American one, so you might have missed out on the first batch of stock.

    Also after a quick search of the sites FAQI've come across the following:

    Delivery times (add 15 working days/3 weeks to your delivery time for outside of the UK)

    zavvi.com Help - What is the expected delivery time for my order?

    Delivery to what countries:

    zavvi.com Help - Which countries do you deliver to?

    Delivery restrictions on international deliveries:

    zavvi.com Help - Are there any restrictions on international deliveries?

    Hope some of this helps

    Zavvi bought out the Virgin megastores if I remember correctly, they aren't the same company. Then they went under, or at least closed down the stores. Found this a real shame, as I managed to pick up some real deals in the stores on games, cd's, movies, the whole shebang.

    Never ordered online with them, so can't speak to that, but always found the staff more knowledgeable in general than HMV. Would always look at ordering from a company based in your own country though, especially as international postage can sometimes be a bit of a pig for delivery times though.
    I was thinking about boasting about my :plat:'s and 100%'s, but then I thought why bother, not like they're anything amazing.

    YLOD: 9/10/11. RIP

    If you're not living in the UK, don't expect to have your game before 1 or 2 weeks.

    Zavvi/TheHut/Sendit are great sites, but never try to get a pre-order with them if you want the game "day one" and if you don't live in the UK.

    I've got something like 20 orders on Zavvi, and just one time I was frustated, the RE 5 gold edition made 1 month to arrive !!! Because it was "out of stock" quickly, and UK members are favored.

    I buy all of my games from Zavvi, The Hut and Game.co.uk - I have over 300 retail PS3 discs and have never had a problem.

    I can't recommend them highly enough however, I don't pre-order games so I can't vouch for that aspect of their businesses.
