I just chased GAME in the UK for my demo early access code for the 360.

They confirmed that they had only just received the access codes from the publisher and are looking to get the codes rolled out by the end of the week.

The demo is available to everyone next week! What a complete and utter shambles.

If I don't get it tomorrow I'll be cancelling my order and placing it elsewhere as the game is around 10 cheaper on other sites.

I have emailed Valve too to see whether they can provide me with a code however I guess I won't receive a response.

Just to let you know if you're another Brit who's waiting for their code thinking they will be able access the demo tomorrow.

Ouch...
I got my code straight away when I pre-ordered it in-store, this Saturday.

Just wait awhile, or go to the store you pre-ordered from?

Thanks for that, I'll be straight on the phone to them again later to sort it out as I ordered it online and they told me to wait until the end of the week.

I had to order online there are no stores for miles :mad: otherwise I'd be down there straight away.

I'm just preparing my angry phone voice before launching an assault-luckily I didn't book a day off to play it as I had planned.

If there's no luck with the phone, go down to the any GAME store with proof of purchase, explain your problems and they should give you them.

I got 2 when I bought mine, so why shouldn't you get them too? :)

Thanks for the background info guys, I used it to support my complaint and they emailed the codes through while I was on the phone!

I guess the first person I spoke to should be working at Lidl rather than GAME-collecting the trollies.

Yeah, I actually messaged GAME about not getting them, and a few hours later (about 5 mins ago) they sent me them... maybe you should try that.

GAME JUST SENT ME MY DEMO CODE AND BASEBALL BAT CODE!!! YAYYYYYY

Also it took 4 emails xD.
I emailed them last week regarding my order,
then after their reply i emailed again asking about how i will recieve the code (at this point i already gone to a GAME store and picked up a demo code)
Then after another reply i asked when
they replied saying a few days before release
then today i emailed about 30mins-1 hour ago saying i havnt got it yet.
Now i just checked my emails and i got a baseball bat and demo code :D:D:D:D
