Pre-ordering games is the best way to ensure you get your copy when it is released, here you can find all information relating to pre-ordering.
When will my pre-order arrive?
We aim to get pre-orders with you in time for launch day, however, we can’t control courier delays. Our orders ship up to 5pm the day before release, you will receive a confirmation email when this happens.
Orders placed in-store can be collected from the release date, and will be reserved for up to 48 hours. Some of our stores offer a midnight launch, meaning you can get the game as early as possible! Click here to find out more.
When will I be charged for a pre-order?
Sales are usually charged to your card at the time of despatch, but charges can be taken up to seven days before. We do however authorise your card for £1 when you place the transaction to ensure you have given us the right details. This money may appear to have been removed from your account…Read more

New releases are no more than £5 cheaper online unless there is a web exclusive offer.
Why can’t I use my gift card towards online pre-orders?
Our gift cards can’t be used towards online pre-orders as we don’t take payment until the week before items are released. You can still use your gift card to pre-order in-store.Read more
