Downloadable content (DLC)
Some Pre-order titles come with extra downloadable content (DLC). We always update the product description and title to reflect this where applicable. If we do not mention any extra downloadable content in the product description or title, then the stock that we are pre-selling does not come with the extra downloadable content.
What condition is your stock?
The majority of our stock is brand new and sealed directly from the publishers – If an item is pre-owned, this will be stated within the description.
Most of the games that we sell will play in most European languages however we cannot guarantee or provide the exact list of languages for each game. For more specific information you will need to consult the publisher’s official website.
When is payment taken for my order?
Payment for your order will usually be taken within one hour of your order being placed unless you have ordered a Pre-Order item. Within this time our banks will carry out various security checks to ensure your order is not linked to any fraud activity.
How long do refunds take to show in my account?
Any refunded payments will show back in your account within 3-5 working days.
Why was my card declined?
The most common cause of a card being declined is that the billing address details used on your order do not match either your registered card address or your delivery address. If your card is declined, then you may receive an email from us inviting you to update your payment details on the order via your account on the website.
Payments using existing card details
If you have successfully made a payment via our credit/debit card gateway you will be able to reuse these card details on your next transaction by clicking ‘Use this card’. If you wish to use a different card you will simply need to click the ‘New card’ button on the payment page.

Payment for your order will be captured up to 7 days before we dispatch your items, unless your order was placed more than 28 days before the official release date. In this case, your payment will be captured within 28 days of your order being placed if you paid with PayPal or within 90 days of your order being placed if you paid using Debit or Credit Card.
Please note: Although we DO NOT immediately capture the transaction, some banks reflect the value of the order against your available balance immediately.
