Mods - the direct link I provided is not coming through. Am I allowed to provide a direct link?
#2
Is this over the phone only, strange i was on the preorder pre register and i've had now email yet.
#3
No it is online. Here is the link (Mods feel free to remove if needed):

http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/5683707.htm

While this is not a 'deal' par se, I thought I'd point it out for those that were looking for a PS3 on launch day (especially as stocks are likely to be limited!)

Also, Argos have a very good track record of honouring pre-orders.
#4
If this is anything like the last few console launches (DS,PSP,360,Wii) the chance of getting one from Argos is slim. The fact they want payment in full and they have no guarentee that you will get one on launch day makes this a very bad deal.

I'd steer clear of these clowns. They never seem to be able to deliver.
#5
Got to say as well I've found them really SHITTY when getting anything delivered @ home.

Stay well clear also.

Can we have a stay clear post? (then see how hot it gets voted):)
#6
Just Pre-Ordered :shock: £430 ..... anyone know if it comes with a controller? surely :-D
#7
All orders of Playstation 3 console, accessories and software prior to 23rd March 07 will be delivered from the date of launch. Argos will only take pre-orders against a pre-agreed launch allocation from the supplier. Argos will stop taking pre-orders once this allocation has been sold. Argos will never knowingly oversell the console, accessories or the software. Argos will endeavour to deliver on the launch date. However, should the supplier fail to deliver on time, or part deliver Argos' launch allocation, Argos will deliver to customers in strict chronological order, which may be after the launch date. Argos can not be held responsible should a software publisher delay the release of a software title. Should this happen, Argos will keep you informed and either deliver on the revised software launch date, or offer a refund or replacement.

What the refund policy in these...I mean if i buy one now then change my mind once delivered - can it be refunded?
#9
Yeah right... how many people are still waiting for a Xbox 360 HD-DVD drive from them? Never knowingly oversell...ppfffftt

Please note that this product is excluded from our 30 Day Money Back Guarantee (once or should i say IF it has been delivered) :-( . This does not affect your statutory rights - not surprising as i think all their consoles have always been excluded including the famous wii.

BTW since when was it a 30 day money back gurantee - i got something there yesterday an on the back of the receipt it said 16 days refund/exchange policy ???

I would have to disagree, got let down by 2 places for Xbox 360 Launch but got one for nephew and myself upon launch from Argos.

Used there home delviery for loads of things and no complaints.

Cheers Darenstevens, you have just made me feel better with saying that, just pre-ordered one from argos earlier today.

I think it changed with the new catalogue so probably some old till roll.

When I got my Wii the till operator got a bit confused and said it was excluded for the 16 day, I mean 60, no 30 day money back guarantee. I said to her that if its excluded it doesn't matter how long it is. :-D
#15
[SIZE=2]I've ordered one for myself from Argos this morning. :thumbsup: [/SIZE]
#16
I think i did a mistake from ordering them.what can i do now?
somehow can i cancel the order.other thing is that do u think it will be deliveried soon after the launch.

Direct links aren't working with Argos at the moment, but if you could post the catalogue numbers it would help a lot until they're fixed. Thanks very much :)
#18
Thanks for posting it in there Antj87 and original post Tejstar :)
#19
I noticed after ordering it the PS3 was going to be delivered to the card address (Home). I work full time so called to change the address to my work one and was told none of the order details can be changed.

I presume other than cancelling that's all you can do, so I have put in to take the day off and wait in for it.
banned#20
The best chance of getting one on the day is to pre-order from Game.
#21
Just Pre-ordered mine. Hope it arrives !!!
#22
Just done mine too, I rang up instead of doing online to ask a few questions.

Was told we should deffo get them on the day. They only got their allocation yesterday so pre-orders only started today, she said she's had a few calls today already... hopefully we should be all be alright, as I'm guessing the main rush of pre-orders will be instore tomorrow as its the weekend.
#23
hey if you are ordering this on-line and have a nectar card do it through nectar estores as you should get quite a few points :thumbsup:

stupid Argos website means that i cannot input my full house name which means my credit card won't verify.

what idiot designed their website!!??
#25
I think its quite shocking that they are willing to take the money without the knowledge of delivery!

I bought something with the 16 day garauntee. I took it back on a Saturday when the 16 year old kids work and I told to shove the 16 day limit and give me my money back, which they did.

The Argos site does say...

"Argos will only take pre-orders against a pre-agreed launch allocation from the supplier"

As they have only been taking preorders since today I'm pretty confident I am on the list early enough to get one.

Also when on the phone, the lady said they will ring 1 week before launch day to confirm everything.... so f I don't get a call I will be chasing it up and cancelling ;)
banned#27
When do you think other stores will begin taking preorders?
#28
GAME is next week £150 deposit......and HMW are taking names and £30 deposit.

I really am thinking of buying one but not sure which retailers the most respected in meeting consumer demands on the first day of release of certains items e.g. Consoles etc? Because they are taking pre order but still I havent been promised if I will get one ASAP...etc....
banned#29
Have game taken any yet?

I am seriously considering one, even though I can't really afford one. I would want to be close to the top of the list if I did.

lol..Yeh same here..No ring Game..and they explain the procedure. Then they take details so they can get in contact with you when they will be taking deposits etc. So the earlier you ring you will be higher on the list etc.


Hope that Helped?

Yes, it helped and I added to your rep.

Did that thanks and bought it on my Argos card with 6 months interest free credit. Brilliant.
#33
Argos are gits, they charge your credit card straight away for the full amount.
So they get your money for two months without any guarantee that they will get their full PS3 allocation.

Anyhow I was under the impression that it was illegal for them to charge you until the have stock and its ready to ship??

They don't just authorize the card they take the money, I wouldn't of minded if it was a deposit of £100 or so.

Cancelled and got a refund, which they tell me will take 7 to 10 days, which is bad considering they can take it straight away, I'm in retail and I can tell you it don't take my company 7 to 10 days to refund. :x :x
#34
It begs the question: "Why are you buying this right now?"

Too much money chasing something that will drop in price as surely as eggs are eggs.

Move along, no bargain here:p
#35
i spoke to the guys in game today and they haven't even been told how many units from sony they are getting yet.They did say however that they are estimating the whole off europe is only getting 1 million units.The game website is also taking emails to notify you of when preorder is starting.
#36
Ordered one by phone yesterday. They offered me a 9 month interest free card option, I took this option so you dont even have to pay any money up front - as long as you pay before the end of the 9 months you pay no interest.
#37
I ordered one too, having read what people have written, im very skecpical if i will get it on time :(
#38
Apparently what happened with the Wii - Argos decided to ship their consignment based on location (as opposed to how early you pre ordered). Obviously this meant a lot of people who ordered early didnt necessarily get one, but because it upset so many people I doubt theyll make the same mistake again.
#39
You can still add it to your basket, are they still taking orders as I am sure they'd have filled their allocation by now?

I think Argos are going to be letting people down big time even tho they say they will take orders for the allocation they have!
#40
Im pretty worried that its still on their site, and its flys in face of what they said about not 'knowingly overtaking order allocation'. Given that they have probably had ten times the amount of orders as they will get consoles.
