Default Has GAME.co.uk packaging improved?

I'd like to preorder the MK11 Steelbook edition off Game, but I'm concerned it may turn up as a crumpled mess.

It's been a fair few years since I've ordered off them, has anything improved?

Last time I ordered something from there (been definitely a few months), they used some kind of huge bubble wrap envelope. It was shaped like a big square with the game in the middle and a lot of "protection" area around it (since it was way bigger than the actual game).

That being said, no idea how much it would protect the game when something heavy was to be placed on top of it.

I got the kingdom hearts console from there and the box has quite abit of damage I say for collector pieces they are good but for consoles they are not. It had one side of the console with a large bubble protector I can’t pronounce what it is but it was just one side of the console whereas nothing else protected as it just about fits the cardboard packaging

If anything I'd say they've gotten worse over time.

Like Shellshock said, they seem to have moved to using kind of soft plastic Jiffy bags which in my experience have offered no adequate protection whatsoever. The integrated bubble-wrap doesn't even look like it could protect something from an accidental drop from a couple of feet never mind the whole shipping process.

My KH3 Deluxe as a good recent example had a bit of a bashed in corner and the box for the preorder yo-yo was all crumpled too and I would put the blame on the flimsy envelopes.
