Hiya, ordered myself an Elite 2 weeks ago with Virgin simply because I got a 10% discount, which brought it down to a slightly nicer price of £270...however, despite it saying on the site the console is usually dispatched in 1-2 days, my order was immediately backordered.. I e-mailed them to ask why, a week later and they sent me a bog standard response which was about as useful as chocolate tea kettle.
Anyway, long story short, I want to cancel and order from elsewhere.
I know you can get an elite from Littlewoods Direct with a 10% discount, but I'm a bit dubious about buying from the site as I've heard people have had problems with them. The cheapest I've seen the console to buy is £285 from a local retailer called Grainger Games who are fine, and they also sell the console with Blue Dragon for £295. So I mean, I could buy it from them and be losing out on a tenner overall but the skin flint in me is demanding I have this one last throw of the dice to see if I can order the console from anywhere else, where it's in stock, for about £270. I'm not that fussed about bundles because I'm not really interested in any other games at the moment (other than Mass Effect which Virgin have dispatched ).
Sorry for the rambling, but basically, is anywhere selling in stock elite's for about £270 (after discounts?) with delivery? Cheers!
