Technology | New pre-order service by HMV & Xtra-vision launched for FIFA 15

HMV Xtra-vision’s exclusive new pre-order by text service, means you can instantly pre-order all the latest games releases wherever you are!

This brand new service, the first of its kind in Ireland, kicks off on Friday 12 September with a pre-order by text campaign for EA SPORTS ™ FIFA 15.

To place a €5 pre-order for FIFA 15 by text, customers text their order and format preference (FIFAPS4 / FIFAPS3 / FIFAXB1 / FIFAXB3), followed by their desired store for collection (eg. Greystones) to 51000*.

They are then sent a unique code, which they present at their HMV or Xtra-vision store to collect their product on the day of release.  The €5 pre-order charge is taken directly from the customer’s phone credit, or will appear on their next bill.

A copy of the game will be ensured on release day -Friday 26 September – and each person who places a pre-order for FIFA 15 will also receive bonus content featuring historic kits, DLC and a 3 DVD boxset of World’s Greatest Footballers, exclusively available at HMV Xtra-vision.

Developed in partnership with Irish company Phonovation, HMV Xtra-vision customers will also be able to purchase Microsoft Live points and membership and PlayStation PSN & Plus directly via text.

Music and film pre-order opportunities will also be available in the near future.

Standard rate per text.  Network charges vary.
