    Can anyone recommend a good place that takes care of PACKING a game? Amazon and play don't give a damn.
    My "Dead Rising Limited Edition" case is buckled up.

    Ideally an online shop that packs up a game in foam or a larger box would be ideal.

    The Amazon cardboard packaging is more than sturdy enough for a game. Sounds like your postman sat on it.

    It's not a limited edition. It's a tin box that says "Limited Edition" on it. My local Game had over a dozen of them this afternoon, and it had been on sale since at the very latest Thursday lunchtime...

    Use Gameplay, they give you an option of packing choices and always get pre orders to me a day early.. which is nice.

    The limited edition was sold out in most areas where I live, i checked in couple of Game stores too. i managed to get it from HMV they had the last copy on the shelf. I'll be sending the "buckled" one straight back to amazon. it's a new game so I guess it will take time till all the other high street stores stock it.

    Thanks for that tip. I'll definetly consider gameplay, I usually use amazon for my other purchases so placed my order there thinking it will arrive in perfect condition.
