They have been telling customers who pre-ordered a PS4 for 350 that they won't receive one unless they upgrade to an unofficial 415 package.

Avoid.

I have bought a few games from them before and they have been fine, but the ps4 thing was disgusting.

trading standards involved, says it's unlawful

I wouldn't go within a mile of simplygames now. Don't care how cheap they are, treating pre-order customers like that is not cool.

Ditto. There's plenty of competition out there, SG have shot themselves in the foot.

I've never bought from them, but a friend of mine does his preorders via them and he's always received them before release day.

I think flubit use simplygames (as I received the last of us from them), but I'm still waiting for my copy of GTA V that I pre-ordered. Apparently the "second" copy was sent Friday and should have been with me Monday this week. Still no sign as yet.

They actually been around for quite a while, I think I knew about them before play or amazon. I bought a dreamcast with shenmue bundle from them in 2000. Never bought anything from them since then.

A lot of media coverage on this site and it's unfair treatment of customers who have pre ordered consoles.
Apparently the site has sent out messages to the customers who preordered consoles only we're told that unless they purchased the much more expensive bundles then their original pre order wouldn't be fulfilled.
It's not even like the bundles are the standard sony/xbox either but bundles that this site has created with their accessories which are priced much higher than in the shops.

I understand that the sites being looked into by the office of fair trading as this is essentially profiteering and illegal.

I'd seriously consider pre ordering elsewhere rather than use this site.
