So does anyone have any experience with Game or the Square-Enix store for pre-orders?

I wanna pre-order the FFXV deluxe edition and it only seems available from those two places, so question is, who is more reliable to get me it on or even before lauch day?

I've only ordered CE's from Square Enix store but I always get them on release day via DPD. Square will use Royal mail for the deluxe edition IIRC, Game will probably do the same. You get extra postcards from Square Enix , but you can use game points & get cashback via game. I've never gotten a pre-order early from Game, but I haven't gotten one late either - but other people on GAF have.

FYI, GAME nets you A King's Tale as a bonus, Squeenix Store does not.

I'd also add http://www.gamecrawler.co.uk/ to the OP. Between that and Idealo you're covered for general prices of games outside of sale events.

I haven't seen it anywhere else, and I don't have posting privileges, so this thread feels like the proper place to put this deal...

Basically, Sony is doing a promotion in Italy: buy a PS4 Slim 1TB and one game for at least 349€, get back 100 (PS3/360/WiiU) or 200 (PS4/One) euros by trading in your old working console.
Coincidentally, two retailers (Iper and Carrefour) are doing another promotion in which they give you 89 (Iper) or 100 (Carrefour) euros in in-store credit if you buy a PS4 Slim 1TB + Fifa 17 for 349€. Finally, if you're not interested in Fifa, you can trade it at a GameStop for 40€ in in-store credit until the 14th of October.

Now, I have my old PS4 500GB which is perfectly functional, but whose warranty has expired a couple of months ago. With this promotion I upgraded to the 1TB Slim for the very low price of "10€": 349€ - 200€ by trading my old console - 100€ of Carrefour credit - 40€ of Gamestop credit.

The Sony promotion is also very good if you have a very old (but unmodded and still working) PS3 or X360: those are accepted and you get back 100€!

Just to add though i had a problem with Shopto in 2014 and were a complete ballache to deal with trying to get my money back for over 2 months, (website stated at the time to wait 28 days for the items to arrive before attempting to claim a refund, 2 months later though nothing showed up and they were still ignoring me, of course i came onto here to complain and found it was banned, which was too late but no suprise) so just a heads up, i may be in the minority, but i have heard others who have had the similar problems with higher value items. I finally got money back after getting a consumer rights channel on social media involved.

You'll get it on-time if you live in the UK. You'll get it the following week if you don't.

There's probably going to be some kind of monster/halloween themed October sale. Until Dawn is a somewhat likely be a part of such sale. Whether it's as low as 15£, that I wouldn't be so sure of. Could be or it could be a little higher.

I had a similar problem, had to wait 3 months for them to process a refund. When I called the guy was a total dick on the phone. Will never use them ever again.

I bought a PS4 for my brother from them last year and the outer box was damaged .. I checked the ps4 and the HDD cover had some scratches & they offered to refund or replace it , I initially accepted but the scratches were hardly noticeable and the ps4 ran quieter than my one so I asked them to cancel the cancellation. They were polite both times O_o. Although the person I spoke to when I was returning a game they sent me accidentally was pretty rude, which was wtf since I was being kind & saving them money - they had no idea they sent me it
(no despatch e-mail, order was cancelled weeks before) & hadn't charged me...

I had a few problems with Shopto around when the PS4 launched. They missed the release date on one game(Tearaway I think), hadn't even shipped it until I sent them a message asking where it was. I also had a PS4 vertical stand ordered, and they shipped me the wrong product. Lastly they handled the mega bundle really poorly (people who'd pre-ordered after me being offered it when I didn't get a choice).

They apparently don't handle big scale launches very well at all.

Between all of that happening in the span of a few weeks, and all the stories from other people, I don't think I've used them much at all since. Maybe once or twice when they've had a good price on a game, but that's so bloody rare these days. Most of their prices aren't cheap at all.

No idea, I just had an email on Friday explaining the £2 off system on preorders/new releases from now on, and saying I had a £6 voucher on my account as a thank you for preordering one for more games recently (of which I've got 2) and/or games withing two weeks of release.

Sure enough I logged in and I had a £6 voucher to use. I assumed everyone had gotten one lol?

Nah that's fine, there's a 50% chance Amazon's CS will end up confused, it was just a bit weird they sent people different amounts though. Might be one of my games(since it's a niche title & they mess up when they list these sometimes) wasn't in the right category when they calculated it or something. Having a PS4 Pro & PS VR on top of the games should count for something though =@.

I got 8 euros fron amazon spain premium because I have recently bought or peordered 4 games. I think the policy has been 2 euros per recent preorder or new game bought, 2 gbp in the UK.

Edit: wait, looking at my recent orders I have bought more than 4 in september, but preorders pending as of october 1st are only 4. I guess this may be the rule applied. The email from amazon spain was certainly not clear at all.

You probably weren't logged in and did a guest checkout when you paid with PayPal. If you have the email receipts you'll be fine.

I've ordered without being logged in before and after contacting them they added the orders to my account.
If you've got the order numbers just drop them an email their support is really good.
No funds are taken until the order is dispatched anyway, although this is slightly different for Paypal due to the 28 day preauth limit where they'll either take the funds on the dispatch or 28 days after the order whichever comes first.

PayPal receipts should do but The Game Collection are good, I've never had an issue with them so you shouldn't worry :)
