Hiya, is anyone else having the same problem, it keeps saying your payment was not successful, tried using paypal, that does not work either, any ideas?

Hm, I had it happen earlier today (once) but I tried again straight away and my order went through. They dispatched it less than two hours later so maybe they're just having random problems?

It did that with me all day last Friday. At first it kept saying payment was unsuccessful then later it just kept loading my account, rather than my basket so I couldn't even get to the checkout.

In the end I managed to order through the guest checkout.

Thinking about it, paying for my order wasn't the only problem. It kept emptying my basket and telling me the items I had chosen were out of stock and therefore removed. Then it kept putting me through to a sale before removing it again. After I'd finally placed the order (and paid) the item updated to show it was out of stock. So I'd say they're just having general problems with the site right now.

I had a problem if I've had a game pre-ordered for a few months and when it's due out I get an email saying something about the payment on my credit card was denied or something and to check the information. But I go onto the site and reorder it and it works after that. It's weird because every time I don't have to change any information on my credit card so I don't know why it doesn't go through the first time.

would rather buy from amazon, not a fan of game in general, however i want a ps3 and game.co.uk is the only place selling the previous slim version, i don't want the new slim with the cheap pull out tray...

I'm done With game.co.uk I preordered 6 games in one day just to get them all out f the way and the first one arrived on release day but the most recent ones have been sent secon class and have all came two to three days after release, the most recent two gears of war ( 3 days after release) and bioshock (hasn't arrived today) so that's the lot now that I had ordered so I'm done.

Plus I've noticed they have made it really hard to cancel an order.

The last couple of games I ordered (not pre-orders) from them have taken a really long time to arrive.

I do currently have a game on pre-order with them and I am really holding no hopes that it will arrive anything near release day.
