    Firstly, no, a poll won't work. Voting on a poll would be a one-time response while with posting, you can edit it later.

    Has your 3DS/games/accessories pre-order/s been dispatched already? I expect SSF IV and Nintendogs to be dispatched tomorrow for delivery on Thursday. I'd like to think Zavvi would do so as I've just bought Pokemon White from them and they dispatched it on a Wednesday and it got delivered the next day.

    Also I've seen people from other European countries get their hands on the 3DS and games soooo early.

    Amazon don't seem to have dispatched my copy of Splinter Cell 3D yet. They've promised that it will be delivered for release day so keeping my fingers crossed [​IMG]

    Zavvi dispatched my pre-order for a black 3DS and Nintendogs + cats on Saturday [​IMG]

    I have the option to track the parcel but it's been stuck on 'Awaiting receipt of parcel' since then via curiour 'DPD' even though it says they collected the parcel on the 19th [​IMG]


    Anyone else got this?

    Someone told me that they may be holding onto it until it's closer to the release day :/

    It's pretty much impossible to get any electronic early in the US.

    I'm picking mine up Sunday at the store... So no idea about mine. Maybe the store has them already.

    Asda sent my girlfriend an email on Satruday saying it had been dispatched. Kind of hoping it doesn't get delivered until Friday though, probably won't be in if it comes on Thursday or whatever and then I've got the ball-ache of having to get it redelivered or picking it up for some depot on some godforsaken industrial estate in the arse end of nowhere.

    Preordered from Amazon UK, dispatch estimate is on the 24th; 3-10 days until it reaches my country, and then who knows how many more days until it gets to a postal office in my town. Pretty meh.

    My blue 3DS has been dispatched.

    Being delivered by DPD who are currently my favourite courier, as when ordering parts for my computer the DPD tracking stated what day it would be delivered, on that day the tracking updated to say when i would receive my package within a 10 minute window and to top it off the driver text me shortly before arriving to let me know he was on his way! Now compare that to Parcelforce or City Link who may show up anytime between 7am and 6pm or may not bother and just change the tracking to "not in" even when i've sat by the damn door all day you can see why i praise them so much [​IMG]

    jamesaa what does your DPD tracking say ATM?

    I'm also worried because I've herd lots of negative things about DPD where they turn up and don't knock just leaving the 'We missed you' card or leaving packages on door steps.
    Luckily I think someone will be in most of the week so shouldn't miss the package [​IMG]

    This thread must be for zavvi pre-orderers. [​IMG]
    To my knowledge no other store's started delivering yet.

    Except that guy about what said asda did.
    Which asda was that?
    I have a pre-order with asda-entertainment and it's still not shipped.

    Tracking numbers are silly things, they only update when you get the package in my experience.

    @jayrow
    It's "Awaiting receipt of parcel"

    My assumption is Asda are delaying delivery so I don't receive the console early, as it also states the service being next day delivery.

    @Nollog

    Asda Entertainment sent my dispatched email yesterday

    My Zavvi pre-order hasn't shipped yet and i placed that in January, my Asda pre-order has and i placed that over the weekend ¬_¬

    Yeah, mine is the same... I think they have the parcel but like you said are holding onto it until it's nearer the day [​IMG]
    I got all excited thinking it would come on Monday/today [​IMG]

    Can't wait [​IMG]

    My tracking code was in my dispatched email.

    Depends where you bought the 3DS and who it's being delivered by as to whether you get a tracking code or not.

    Got my order receipt and my 3DS is in processing right now from shopto, so I probably get my tracking number for postal anytime soon. Most likely tomorrow though and it might arrive on Thursday if lucky. [​IMG]

    Did you pre-order early? Zavvi is a part of The Hut group so they're basically the same. Preordered my games a week ago. I'm assuming there's some sort of pre-order priority.

    Gah, you guys are making me JEALOUS with your dispatch confirmations! I gotta wait for a call from Morrisons to tell me they have it. Worse, they don't even "confirm" they'll have it this Friday. They'll just phone me. It's as if they are so oblivious to the 3DS that the first woman I talked to had to call the manager to know what exactly I was asking.

    "Can I pre-order a Nintendo 3DS"

    Anyone pre-ordered from Morrisons? Can you share your experiences?

    what's the point in getting the game early if you've got no console to play it on?
