Excellent price. Thank you.

Hope it isn't a re-release in a "discount" title box.

There are 2 PGR4 on HMV.com

1 for £9.99 and 1 for £4.99 i assume the £4.99 is the classic version but can not see this listed anywhere.

If you order just expect it to be the classic range :thumbsup:

Good price OP tempted to buy it back again :)

EDIT
Although looking at the release dates
£9.99 release date: 16-11-2009
£4.99 release date: 01-03-2009

You would assume the £4.99 is in fact the normal release as its older, although im not sure how accurate HMV are on the release dates

Yes, thanks Starr, I've just seen that as well.

I think I'll leave it & buy from somewhere I can be assured of which version I'm getting.

If you want....

If it helps you out, you could buy a copy, if its the classic version i will buy it from you over on the fs/ft forum, would just need 1st class postage and ill be happy to pay £5.65 inc postage for it.

I dont mind if it helps you out :thumbsup:

Excuse my ignorance but why does it matter if it's in a Classics box or not?

Thanks Starr. I've added some "rep" for you for that as I don't see any gain for you there... you may as well just buy from HMV for £4.99 (with free delivery) yourself.

Unless, of course, you wish to pay by PayPal, for instance, and HMV do not offer that as a payment method.

Thanks again.

When I bought 2 copies for £4.99 2 months ago they were both original release red ones.
#14
Had a quick little Google around for release dates and such, and does appear that the Classics version of PGR4 was orginally released in March 2009, so I'd say there's a fairly strong likelihood of the £4.99 not being in the original case.

Now for me to return to arguing with myself over whether the superb price can outweigh my desire for getting hold of an original edition! :P

But this might tempt me to just risk it!

Mmm my opinion of the site is rapidly shrinking.

I can understand the removal of insulting material and gratuitous foul language but honestly held and politely expressed opinions?

Why?

I think you both need to review the code of conduct immediately. No justification for the comments, hence removal. Please do not encourage this sort of behaviour.

When you approve of a post you click on the scales by the persons name to give the positive rep:thumbsup:

See how you're a matchstick now with 2 orange circles? Well the more rep you get the more circles and your title changes.

I feel bad now because you may have missed out on the £4.99 price, especially if the item I ordered turns out to be in the box I wanted.

D'oh!

Having read the Code of Conduct I think that the removal of the comments from this thread was probably correct.

I would like to end my part in any further discussion by stating that if we are all part of a "community" then there should be a "space" available for the discussion of motive and methodology behind the posting of "deals" and whether or not "personal gain and interest" should be declared by posters.

Is £6.99 still not a good price for this game?

nest best for new is £11.99 at amazon/play.

Update... Thanks mods, boy are you lot on it, that was propa fast
#33
It's still 4.99 but appears as £6.99 in basket until hmv fix it.

edit it now says £6.99 cos it's really out of stock on order 21 days which means, no chance of coming back in just as gears of war has been showing for longer than 21 days
#34
No longer in stock :(

Just to let you all know that I contacted HMV re the price anomaly 4.99 on page 6.99 in basket. Their first response was to fob me off with:

"Thanks for your email.

We're really sorry that you've had problems ordering PROJECT GOTHAM RACING 4 XBOX 360 GAME in one of our special offers. Sadly that title has now sold out. It takes a while for the new price to update throughout the web site and this was taking place whilst you were trying to order the item.

We really hope you're not too disappointed. We're always running special offers on [url]www.hmv.com[/url], so keep checking as the item may pop up again soon.

Any questions? Reply to this email or give us a call instead on 0845 603 8576 we're open 9am - 6pm Monday to Friday.

We hope to see you again soon."

So, I wrote back that this wasn't good enough - they were enticing peolle onto their site with the false promise of low prices. i said I would pass my original email, a screen dump of the web page and their response to trading standards!

They responded with:

"Thanks for your email.

We're really sorry that you've had problems ordering 'Project Gotham Racing 4' for the Xbox 360, in one of our special offers. Sadly that title has now sold out. It takes a while for the new price to update throughout the web site and this was taking place whilst you were trying to order the item.

Any questions? Reply to this email or give us a call instead on 0845 603 8576 we're open 8am - 8pm Monday to Friday.

We hope to see you again soon."

It pays to persevere - even over 2 quid.
