I make a point now of getting any preorder games I want with Simply Games as both the Call Of Duty titles I've pre-ordered with them arrived the day before launch.
Excellent company to work with, good site and easy ordering.
Brilliant service cheapest prices on the internet and fast free delivery
Simply games always get games out to you on time, sometimes early which is even better. Compared to some online game retailers it's up there with the best for it's fast, reliable dispatch and the games always come sealed to a high standand. I would recommend simply games to anyone tired of receiving not on time.
I'd heard good things about simplygames so finally gave them a go and I was immediately impressed, my first 2 orders, including a pre order arrived the day after being sent, the pre order arriving a day before release.
Then however it all went wrong, the promise of receiving AC4 'by the day of release' did not happen, it wasn't even posted by release day and there was no efficient response to my query regarding this. As a result I cancelled this order and my CoD preorder.
They've lost a customer, I'll stick with Amazon, delivery is not always as quick but they do follow through with their promises though and have much better customer service.
I've used SimplyGames a few times and never had a problem! Delivery is free and only takes a day to deliver after despatch. Their prices for newly-released games or pre-orders are normally very reasonable and this is why I use them. And the quick delivery is an added bonus. My only complaint would be the choice of games and the prices of games that have been out for a while. There needs to be a bigger selection of games but, apart from this, SimplyGames are highly recommended!
I would recommend SimplyGames to my friends, because the site is well organized and they have a lot of games in stock. They have really good prices, but they should do something about the delivery to Europe, because some other UK sites are offering free delivery and the lower price for the game doesn't mean a lot to a customer from Europe when there is a delivery charge. They don't have to offer free shipping, but they should offer free shipping for an order of £50 or something like that...
When everywhere else was sold out, SimplyGames pulled through.
I even received the product earlier than friends who had preordered with TheHut/Zavvi/Amazon so I was a very happy laddie!
Thanks guys, I will definitely use SimplyGames in future!! :)
The game (Beyond - Two Souls: Special Edition) costed about £20 (total: 608 SEK) more in Sweden and I found at Simplygames.co.uk for £40 and £9 for the shipping (international) = £49 which is considering cheap when the "normal" version costs £41 in Sweden.
The only downside that takes one star away is that they don't tell you that it will be £9 for shipping (it still says £4,5 at the checkout and on my receipt it says £2,5 each(!) which is quite worrisome if you order 2 or more games).
In conjunction with using DPD delivery service, Simply games have provided an excellent service again. Ordered an Xbox One, delivered in specified time slot and packaged well. Never had any problems with Simplygames. I am a relatively new customer and will continue to use them. Excellent stuff. Well pleased. Thank you!
I was very skeptical about using simply games, as it was a new company to me and the deal I wanted seemed 2 good 2 be true!! After reading many reviews and a lot of contemplating I decided to go ahead, And I'm glad I did! I had no problems with simply games at all. I got my delivery times and confirmation msgs on time and got my product as promised on the correct day and on time.
Simplygames have changed all of the pre-orders for ps4 forcing people to cancel or take a poor value package they don't want. I now have to risk disappointing my kids at Christmas or just take what they offer.

Pre orded ps3 console in plenty of time to get on release day as surprise gift for husband. Then was going to leave it up to him to buy games as I cannot afford them as well. Then a few weeks before launch ( when to late to pre order from anywhere else) was then advised that to be able to get order I would havd to change to a package including an extra controller which he would never use for extra £70. Ish or game and controller for extra £110.00 ish. So I had to ruin the surprise to be able to borrow money off husband and know what game to get. Felt bullied into buyinv more than I wanted.
How can they do this?
I could have ordered from ANYWHERE (back in June when I placed this order) and guaranteed a day one console for £349. I have now been emailed today (2nd Oct, 4 months on) and told I have to take a bundle with a bunch of stuff that I would not and will not buy, or use.
This is the sort of behavior I would expect from elsewhere not Sony or Simplygames.

Yesterday my Xbox gold ran out and I started looking around for the cheapest 12 month code. I came across simplycdkeys/simplygames and they were selling it at £27 which I was very happy with. That's 6 pounds cheaper than amazon! I will def buy from this website again in the future :)

Simply Games made Amazon look like rank amateurs, the prices are great and pre orders arrive a day early, couldn't ask for more.
Having Used simply games for a number pre orders now i have always been happy with the overall experience, the prices are normally better than 99% of other retailers and the deliveries have been early and quick... The last game i pre ordered though turned out to be not such a success, i ended up paying more than some retailers and ended up receiving the game 2 days after the official release date, slightly annoying but not all the blame for that can be put onto Simply Games.
So 99% of the time for me has been all around excellent service, with quick dispatch and quick delivery. I gave the 4stars based of the difference between this company at its best, and then when it had the little hiccupp with my last preorder, at its worst for my experience.
I would and have always recommended them.
