Firstly, no I'm not asking where exactly should I pre-order the 3DS. I can't choose between the two: online or in-store. I've recently placed a £13 deposit at my local Gamestation store for the blue 3DS and Street Fighter. Granted that I leave it up to the day of release, I am guaranteed to have both. What I don't like is the price tag, which is £230 together (£200 for 3DS + £30 for SF). The good thing about this though is that it will grant me peace of mind since I'll know the 3DS is just walking distance from my house. However, I was browsing through a number of online sites and I found a very excellent deal from Amazon. Basically, for the same price tag as the one in Gamestation, I can get a 3DS (£196), a FREE screen protector, any 3DS game for only £15 and any 3DS case (can choose between the Expedition or the Executive case) for £10. No wait, it's actually £5 cheaper! Excellent! I can get more with the price I'm paying in-store. But I've had some worrying problems regarding delivery for the past few months. Firstly, I've read some reviews from people saying Amazon sometimes deliver items late, especially pre-orders, with some of them arriving a week later than the estimated delivery date. Secondly, I've ordered a Halo/Fable and Crackdown/Mass Effect double pack from HMV and it was shipped by DHL. It was delivered within the estimate date but the postman didn't even bother knocking. It was raining the day it was delivered and I only knew it was there when my friend brought it inside! Grrr... Now, the icing in the cake: I have had problems with Sky with their router delivery. Currently I am awaiting my 4th router, since the other 3 got delivered to the wrong address. What's weird is that it's Royal Mail that delivers it. Royal Mail delivers my letters and some items I've bought online (mostly from eBay and game sites) successfully so I can't see how they deliver it to the wrong address! I've told Sky to deliver it to my mate's address so hopefully everything will be fine! Let's get back on track. So, I want opinions. If anyone from the UK has had a good or bad experience from Amazon, especially pre-ordered items/bulk items, please share. The Amazon offer is very tempting and looks to be the wiser option but there's a chance it won't come to me. Also, regarding Amazon, the 3DS and the screen protector are available on the 25th but the game (any) and the case are available on the 26th so if I choose Amazon, they'll ship everything to me when all items are available for dispatch. If I choose the "Ship items when available", I'd have to pay £35-45 just for that. I'd appreciate all the feedback as I'm torn between two options. Thanks.
