Just bought this in the PC World at Lakeside. They had about 20 left at midday. It says only to be sold with an XBOX console, but the cashier didn't seem to mind and it scanned through at £20.

Not bad as the controller alone is £28.

I've tried twice at PC World and got turned down both times as i didn't buy the console. Suppose it depends on who serves you and which store!?
#2
I saw these in Currys earlier, asked someone to scan it just in case they might sell it by its self but no luck, £20 but can only be bought with a console. I think these were posted for something like £5 a couple of weeks ago anyway, still not a bad deal though if you get a slightly dense cashier who misses the big bold text saying not to sell it without the console :roll:
#3
Voted cold. I tried this in my local PC World back in December 2007 & they turned me down flat as they'd cottoned on that others were trying to pull the same stunt.
#4
No need to vote cold. This is going to work for some. I will give it a go tomorrow!
#5
thanks for this,Ill give it a try and report back!
#6
I tried this last week in my local Currys and the cashier put 4 through for me !!!! £20 each and yes it does depend on who serves you (She was blond :p). Just try your local Currys or PC World and you never know your luck :thumbsup:

Just a quick warning for those only looking to get this for the controller, the games come packaged together so cant be sold on seperately.

Well, with the pack being discussed here, rather than the one you're talking about, the games come as two DVDs within a single dual-labelled DVD case, so you'd need a spare DVD case to sell them seperately.

Dont suppose you have the product code from your receipt? Its usualy a 6 digit number but may be padded out with leading zeroes.
#11
ahh i thought you meant seperate to the controller , the pack i had came in one case too i just sold it as a 'double pack'
#12
This gets posted about once a week it seems. Its a stupid deal as its a matter of luck over whether you can find one and you need even more luck for them to actually let you buy it.

Are you sure about the price? I was in PC World Lakeside 2 days ago and saw them there at £29.99.

As you said, they are marked up as "only to be sold with a Xbox 360 console".

Yes. £20.00. I can scan the receipt if you wish.

There were about 20 on a shelf on the right hand side of the store (almost in the window). The shelf edge sticker said £20. The boxes said only to be sold with a console.

In the 'normal' gaming area, they had a sign for the various XBOX 360 bundles and these all said 'add a wireless controller and Viva Pinata and Forza 2 for £29.99'.

I can also confirm they are scanning at £20. Just texted my mate who is working in the Newtonabbey store in Northern Ireland and they have 6 in stock coming up at £20.

Well 5 now as i just got him to get me one with his staff discount, so £18 for me :-D

But like the other times its been posted, its pot luck if the person on the till will sell you it without the console.

You couldn't text your friend to check if they have any in stock in the L/Derry store??
#20
Thanks, just picked up 3 (6 in stock - well, 3 now).
#21
When stuff scans through sometimes theres an "offers" button on the systems that light up... A lot of offers are "WBTW" (when bought with) but i've seen some folk just use the offer anyway, so it really just depends on if whoever serves you tosses the WBTW in the bin and gives you the offer price, or puts it through at the full price.

'tis 50/50.
#22
Can confirm that this worked fine for me.

My mate and I both went and got two each, gonna trade in the spare games.

The guy just scanned both through for £20 each, didn't ask anything even though it had huge letters on the box to only sell with a new console :)
#23
Bought one myself in Dec 07 from Norwich store, they were £19.99
They also told me about some stores selling 'ex display' models for £9.99 for the wireless controller alone, the controller came with 12month guarantee, seemed like a good deal to me, but they were out of stock, might be worth asking though!
#24
Voted HOT! :thumbsup:

Popped into my store this afternoon and picked up this kit for £20, no questions asked!

It's really down to who serves you - give it a go guys it's a bargain!
#25
Could someone who has successfully bought this please post a scan of their receipt? I tried the High Wycombe store last night and I was refused the sale. I said that 'my mate' had bought one from another store, and they said if I brought in the receipt I could get one myself.

Picked up 2 today in Reading...still another half a dozen on the shelf.
Thanks to the original poster :thumbsup:
