Every year you hear of people who have ordered the game online and it has shown up at their door a day or two before the official release date. Tesco did it for a me a few times up to a couple of years ago but I think they got their wrist slapped and haven't done it since.
Anyone know of places that have done it more recently? Obviously it's not guaranteed but can't hurt to try!
And I am looking to get the disc, not a fan of soft copies.
