There are lots of gaming websites to choose from these days, so it's hard to know the best place to splash your cash.
In my personal experience, I find shopto.net to be way up there with the best of the online gaming retailers, their prices are extremely competitive - Usually cheaper than the most popular websites such as Game, Gameplay, Play, Gamestation, etc. In most cases new releases seem to be £2-£5 cheaper than those websites.
It's not just cheap prices that make shopto my favourite though, pre-ordering games is an absolute breeze, if you already have an account setup, all you need to do is log in and click the "pre-order" button ! Simple !
Delivery times are also one of the best things about shopto - if you pre-order a game from them, you can expect the game to arrive on your doorstep the day BEFORE the release date which is excellent service as far as I'm concerned. Even if you aren't pre-ordering, if I buy a game from them and order before 3pm, I've always received it the very next day which is fantastic.
Shopto also rewards you for being a loyal customer, they often give out voucher codes that will credit your account with money. Currently shopto are sending a free magazine out with every order that contains a £3 off code you can use for your next order.
Another feature of the shopto website is reccomending friends. Each time you recommend a game to a friend via a referral email - if that friend signs up and buys that game, your shopto account will be credited £1 ! So if you've got plenty of gaming friends, start recommending !
Customer service is great with fast replys to emails, and to give you peace of mind when you pre-order a game from them - they have a guarantee. If your game does not arrive on the release date of the game - shopto will credit your account with £3. Now how's that for reassurance you will get your game on time, eh ?
If you don't want to buy games, you can also take part in "sell-to" which is where you can sell your games to other shopto members. I've never used that feature myself, so it wouldn't be fair to comment on it - but I thought I'd mention it anyway !
Shopto sells PS3, PS2, PSP, 360, PC, WII, DS games and also blu-rays. To start shopping now, visit http://www.shopto.net
Also, for those of you quick enough - there is a current voucher scheme running that credits your account with £1, enter this code to recieve it:
