I think I might go for this one. I was tempted by HMV with the use of their store card 10% off thingy and also £15 in vouchers (toward a game).
As detailed here by Babbler, a few posts down.

But this, with a £32.99 game from play.com will only be slightly more expensive, but with a lot less hassel.

...Plus 3.5% quidco too :)

Thanks.

After quidco price £156.32!!!

Depends on stock, I rekon they'll be a shortage. So you could potentionally make money, but personally I think that is out of order buying stock, and making the price hike up when you dont intend on actually owning one.

Your call though...

I can't afford to buy one never mind 10 :D

It's always a gamble for the guys who do this, wounder what they did pre ebay? :)
#8
Well indications are that Ninty are producing enough Wiis to meet retail demand, so I doubt the prices wil go as high as £500 on eBay.

(To compare, they have produced 4 millions wiis as opposed to Sony's 2 million PS3s).

Here are the stats I got from a friend (approximate)

Last year each (specialist) store had an average of 15 to 20 xbox 360's
This year stores will get an average of 50 per store (wiis). Twice the amount of xbox's. Doesnt mean there wont be demand though as when I pre-ordered my wii FROM hmv on the 4th day of availability I was 14th in queue. Checked last week and there were already 45 people queued...

The game pre-order list in my local store had 5 pages of A4 of people when i checked... hit and miss really and I want one so not bothered!

HMV still the best "in store" deal and I wanted to guarantee getting one - online can be hit and miss... :)

Here's a perfect example of what the controller can do... http://uk.wii.com/movies/09/

I'm gonna have a hard time keeping my parents away from this.

Tomcool, did you have yours cancel or know someone who did? I was going to buy mine through this, but there's no point if it's going to cancel.

Hope they put a wristband on that. I can see myself throwing it at the tv by accident, esp. the baseball game :-D

That would be one for the insurers.
Claim: new tv and Wii controller.
Reason: eating chips with fingers and playing nintendo!


Edit: Nevermind, I see they do have wristband

I read that the profit margin the stores make on these in the US is only around $12, they make most of their profits from the games. So it is quite feasible that stores will cancel orders with vouchers/discounts, as they know they will still sell them anyway at full price. I ordered mine from Currys on Friday, I'll see if I get my cancellation on Monday.

If I do, I will pre-order from Dixons with my Egg card and get 5% instant cashback I don't think they will be able to cancel that.
#16
First I've heard about cancellations - keep us posted.
#17
I confirm that it was me that got my order cancelled.

"You address does not match your card details"
#18
I've just tried this deal, I'll post here if it gets cancelled.

Tomcooljrock, are you sure that there wasn't a difference with your address details? I've genuinely made that mistake before.

P.S. £5.67 just tracked through quidco.
#19
I've decided to go for it anyway- nothing ventured, nothing gained. Thanks for the info though anyway, Tomcool. I won't be disappointed now if it gets cancelled.

I never said anything about the functions it does, i just think it looks naff. :whistling:
I just think its not going to be very hand friendly when you turn it on its side to use as a controller, there is no grip bits for fingers like in ps2 controllers.

Functionality > Gooood
Looks > Baaaad
#21
I see this has expired, does this mean that whoever got their orders in before the vouchers expired will be ok. Have Currys rejected anyones order using the vouchers?

Not mine as yet.

I hope they don't decide to reject it a day before it comes out! They wouldn't do that would they?:|

£5.67 quidco's tracked. So if it arrives that's a wii delivered for £156.32 !!!

:thumbsup:

I ordered my Wii on Saturday morning (~1am). I received a confirmation email in the afternoon and my Quidco cashback appeared the following morning. Fingers crossed...
