More diverse offers out there.
#3
yeah, I'd describe its as a price minor impact rather than crash. Sorry, but there are way better value bundles out there.

And theres a £3 off voucher lying around, if you dont mind the damaged box.
#10
yeah but that website looks dodgy as anything,

Go into your local Zavvi, with a student card/tribe card/virgin credit card and get an arcade xbox 360 for £89.99. then you've got the 2.5% vat off too.

Nothing wrong with the site ordered stuff before fine.

Why would I want to do that. Ill just wait for the price cuts. Wouldnt buy anything from Zavvi at the mo if there main distributors just died with woolworths, they will be next to go, my guess anyway
#12
buyithere.co.uk is choicesuk so no worries in principle but it doesn't seem to say what the warranty is...that would worry me.
#13
nice deal tempted to pick up an arcade for downstairs at that price just bought the wifi adapter too,would buy but poor :(
#14
where did you get the info for this from? cant find it anywhere

I got the same yesterday from tescos,for a order i had made with them 10 days before for 3 xbox 360 fans and connection items,I think they where called cool and connect.
Priced at 0.99p each to good a price for them to delivery.First email i got told me they where waiting on stock then yesterday as above.

LAME TESCOS ,DONT TAKE THE ORDER IF THERE IS NO STOCK,LIKE IT IS COMPUTERS THAT CONTROL ALL SALES NOWADAYS NOT A GUY WITH A NOTE PAD AND HAVING TO GO TO THE STORE TO SEE IF HE HAS STOCK.
#16
Since the collapse of Woolworths i'm surprised Tesco/Asda have continued to take online orders, they both were suplied by Entertainment UK, only difference is Zavvi is supplied completely by them apart from paper goods.

I can see Zavvi going under, its a shame but at the end of the day the consumer will benefit, cause they'll have fire sales like these consoles.

Surely these are worth more than 12 degrees.
#17
just so you know, zavvi don't offer student discount on hardware. still a good deal tho!
#18
The PS3 40 gig and 80 gig versions are both identically priced?
#19
Picked up an Arcade today from Zavvi in Meadowhall Sheffield for £97 and change. They had about 8 or 9 left, and about a dozen each of the Premium and Elite consoles left.
#20
Just phoned up Zavvi about this offer.

It is simply to offload the consoles they have.

They have had no recent deliveries of the consoles, and as soon as these ones are sold out they will be back at the full price.

Therefore there is zero chance of getting a Jasper in this offer.
[mod]#21
Bumping this for a reminder as we are getting duplicate posts for this deal, thanks :thumbsup:
#22
Zavvi are in a precarious position due to the collapse of Woolworth related companies. The receivers are on standby, so caution is advised with regard to returns etc.
#23
thanks mate...brought xbox 360 arcade console 4 games plus controler £129.99 from cardiff store today
#24
Just a heads up, Next week will see a reduction on alot of Accessories. Official Microsoft included.

For example, Wireless Network adapters £40. and 12months Live subscription for £30.

yes.

best to obviouslly get the 80GB + LBP bundle :)
#26
No Discount Available On These Consoles Not Even For Staff
#27
I don't know why everyone is talking about Zavvi as if they're about to go under. The only money they're losing is money from not being able to sell stuff. They've lost a distributor, not a hundred million pounds behind the sofa.

Erm, they owe EntertainmentUK £106m and they can't pay. The administrator's of Woolworth and EntertainmentUK are going to want that money pretty sharpish. I would say that put's them in a precarious position.

I'd be surprised if the administrator of Woolworths can re-enege a contract with Zavvi. They may owe them £106m, doesn't mean they can have the funds any quicker than they had contracted.

Yes it is

Bit of information...

Tesco do not use Entertainment UK as a supplier of CDs/DVDs/Games they only purchase books off EUK and are thus unaffected by the currently Woolworths problems.

Tesco buy their entertainment products directly from the manufacturers and a company called Oakwood handles the storage and delivery (to stores) of these items. Interestingly Oakwood is also owned by Tesco.

Yes it is


2nded. I use it each year. Increased in price from the £23 ish it was mind you. Its not instant like they claim tho - normally about 3-4 hours after.
#35
The person at zavvi wouldn't let me use student discount on the PS3. Think the price with VAT cut was 265.25.

I thought former parent company Virgin were gonna step in and bail them out for the £100 million.
#37
the 106m is on the promise of stock being sold, hence the fire sales to ensure they have the cash. On top of that, part of the deal which saw Virgin Megastore change to Zavvi was assurances of money for stock. Virgin are bound by contract to cover the debt if Zavvi cannot.
#38
The 4 games and an Arcade console at 129.99 is PGR4, Sonic, Lego Indiana Jones and Kung Fu Panda. You also get a wireless controller.

"...Virgin Group, which backed the management buyout of Zavvi, could be liable for millions of pounds if the retailer goes under because it has guaranteed Zavvi’s orders with EUK. Virgin has underwritten about 60 days of credit for Zavvi, which ends next month. Sir Richard sold Virgin Megastores to Simon Douglas, the Zavvi chief executive, for £1."

Smart guy that Mr Branson. On retrospect the best £1 he ever earned.

BFN,
