From the previous threads you already have at least 2 pre-ordered, correct?
So presumably you want more to flip at a profit? Fair enough.. but if you're really willing to wait up a few days drinking redbull and frantically refreshing the Argos website in the hope of making £100 or whatever, may I suggest getting a job instead?
Argos are also taking preorders for the playstation 5 at an undetermined point in the future so keep your eyes peeled everyone

Chill...it was a joke!
Thanks for your concern but I have a job already and yes well observed I have 2 preorders in place but would sooner have Argos over Smyth's as its 10 miles closer and a tenner cheaper to boot.

And your presumption is completely wrong

Thanks for the heads up. Glad I didn't buy any salt the other day as there seems to be loads tucked away in these threads.

Quite ironic that the company who's console technology is always a generation behind, now wants to make money rehashing it's 80's tech. X)

Hardly. Though Nintendo's consoles lack the brute power of their competitors, they innovate in other areas.
I'm more offended that someone thinks the SNES was an '80s console. It was pure '90s power!
I kind of agree with that idea, other consoles just push to get higher numbers on a chart, nintendo usually does think more about the gameplay and how the user interacts with the games... results are all over the place but they push the industry forward while they do it
How much redbull do I need waiting on the PS5 pre order mentioned oO
Everytime I see a picture of a SNES Mini and the word expired I hate Nintendo a little bit more.
when does argos take money for pre-orders? on ordering, or on dispatch?
Thanks have filled my boots

I'd also like to know this - have got an Amazon pre order still showing as £77.99 which I'm hoping they will amend to £67.99 at some point put just in case I'd like to pre order here at the cheaper price (only if they don't take money now thou lol, still a whole day till payday!)
Also ordered, cheaper than my Smyths order. Thanks!

Argos seem to take the money upfront. I got one and they took the money.

​they havent taken the money straight of me
Cheers thanks for the heads up
yeah no mention of when they'll be taking money for pre-orders on the argos website? nothing mentioned even during checkout?

surprised this issue isn't made clear on their website...


EDIT: just checked my online banking and there is already "ARGOS LTD £69.99" pending on my card, they sure is quick to take money! they better make sure they'll actually have the stock allocation to fulfill all the "money taken 3 months in advance" orders!

I'll stick with my Amazon order then - 3 months and no real guarantee of any stock as they can cancel it any time, they have a rubbish policy!

Yeah me too, I have my amazon and NIntendo Store one will leave it at that
I've ordered one and have the £69.99 pending which will of course go out in the next few days. They best have enough consoles to cover what they've sold. I've only ordered one because I'm not a greedy, money hungry scalper.

this belongs in the 'heads up' section.

it did! now it belongs in the 'awesome section'! Christ i hope people scroll down to see its now live.

I’ve ordered. Thanks. Will cancel my game order. Teach them to overcharge! Think a lot of people will do the same!
Ordered thanks for the heads up, I guess if they can't supply come September they will just issue a refund. Might have to Pre order elsewhere if more stock becomes available between now and then.
I got overcharged at very so this is very welcome. Thank you op
Ordered, cheers.
they are available now. why are people talking about heads up?
Really want to order, but payment upfront is putting me off - ridiculous for something that's not released until September and they may not even be able to supply, knowing Argos. I once ordered a washing machine and tumble dryer from them, they took payment upfront and then decided after 6 weeks that they didn't have the stock and never did have. It then took me another 4 weeks of arguing and letters back and forward to get my money back off them. Never again! Good luck though everyone xx
So much for the "in the next few days" comment by argos, the comment didn't even last 24hrs

the post was made 8 hours ago when they weren't available.
They do want payment upfront but I don't care at this point

Pre-orders are now live. http://www.argos.co.uk/product/7156627



​Why not post this separately yourself? You should get some heat. I haven't time to post (and you should get the credit anyway) but the title of this post is misleading, suggesting pre orders aren't yet live.
