Mandatory £50 deposit

Quick, a goose!

supra niche! massive heat.

I just wanted to say I got one as I work around the corner, and thank you for the post

£50 deposit? Christ GAME must be struggling! Clearly buying in stock using deposits which makes sense but also shows how empty the coffers must be.

why bother, 10 mins of nostalgia before u realise they play crap and look crap. I'd have more value for money spending cash on 50g's of baccy and 12 and a half's pints of lager on Friday night..

More likely they're doing this to impress shareholders with better quarterly figures. I imagine they have finance deals with Nintendo so would pay stocks off at a later date once delivered. Scary for consumers though as they could lose these deposits if the worst happens at Game in the next few months.

It's a hard one to find but id get one if I was near so heat. In other news I can't see game going bankrupt until at least this time next year. That's not to say it won't be wound down prior but I cant see it going bankrupt until then.

Why the chill? This was a great find, with a specific quantity, in a location that's convenient for a lot of people. I just got there and pre-ordered one so there's two or fewer remaining now.

These are very sought after and impossible to pre-order online at this moment in time, and that one location happens to be less than an hour's travel or part of the daily commute for several million people. It's hardly niche.

Game massively lowered their forecasts for their financial year just last …Game massively lowered their forecasts for their financial year just last week. Please don't give them a £50 deposit for something that's more than 2 months away.

Couldn't agree more. If you put 50 in at game you are a sucker...

It's to stop people pre ordering them at £10 and sticking them in eBay and the likes for x2 rrp

Be surprised if you can get this out of Stratford without getting mugged for it ...

The post is for four units, at one store in the uk. Its the very definition of a niche post! One store! this site is littered with niche goose chases and the op has +1 more. The fact that there's a few million people right next door makes it even less probable that someone on here will get one of the four (four!) units.

And yes i'm aware how sought after they are i'm here most days. Its not impossible to pre-order online i've done it twice, and plenty of people achieved it yesterday. -138 is very generous for this post.

The allocation sold out hours ago at this store, expired.

Clearly many here don't know how scalphers work. It is such a good thing to put such a high deposit... it scalphers have £10 deposits and order 10 that £100 and people trying to sell them at £150+ and they will receive their money from eBay buyers before the release. scalphers already doubled their money without even trying... if such high deposit or like Argos take the money straight away and one per customer less likely scalphers free zone


I heard of one guy with the mini nes he made over £10k profit with no money on deposits. As he quoted on the Facebook group 'another year of no work and job seekers easy'

Yesterday is not "at this moment in time". When I posted that and right now it's the only reported availability on this website, with no idea if or when more will be available.

Anyway, this is the site where movie downloads get -1000 degrees "because I could get the Blu Ray for that price!". I'll have to just get over myself and enjoy my SNES mini thanks to OP

Ah yes. Possible for you because you check this website every hour so of course this post is useless to everyone else.

To get heat I should have said this was in Asda Wakefield and 'I dont know how many left'.

You trying to justify someone posting about four units at one store is the funniest thing i've seen this year on hukd. The year isn't over but you're definitely in with a shout at the awards ceremony. I'm voting for you.

Solid gold promise i dont pop in every hour. The post WAS practically useless. If your next one is less niche and of benefit to more than 4 people i'll vote it hot. fair?

Yep next time I just won't say the stock levels like everyone else on here.

And you just got lucky then as they pretty much all sold out within an hour on every website.. so don't try and say that's an 'easy purchase'...

Actually, there is another type of scalper who can afford to spend a few thousand on pre-orders and thus have no issue ordering from high deposit retailer.

All of this however, is pennies compared to how much money ANYONE could have made from bitcoin, it was selling last year at £500 and is now selling for £2k (was 2.5k recently). It's crazy to think at one point you could of bought around 5000 bitcoins for around £25. There will always be people who invest well - nobody should begrudge them.

To think I was buying pizza with BTC in 2012... that turned out to be expensive pizza. On the other hand, I held most of them in a Mt. Gox account so they would've been lost anyway.

@otterboxer that's very cute and all. The availability at this GAME lasted for several hours, much longer than any of the online availability that's been posted. Sure, it's not useful if you don't live in London, but then maybe don't click a link that says "@ Game Westfield Stratford" and expect good things.

Very easy purchases, both went through real smooth and with zero drama. Luck had nothing to do with it, just gotta have a PMA. Fwiw one was posted on hukd the other one on twitter. (best place to look if you dont have one, things break there quicker)

At least have the decency to reply to my comment directly geez. Way to not make a new hukd friend.

It's barely useful even IF you lived in London. Just again, four units, one store.

And @jjjjjjjjjjjj when you do post a deal on here (and post one that might be of benefit to more than four Londoners) i promise to support you fully and will vote it up. Save anymore thrown dummies.

Thank you, noted. In most places multiple consecutive replies are considered bad form but as you can see, I'm new here. I will follow your example in future.

Ouch, that is a sickener, to think that £25 worth of Bitcoin is now worth £12.5 million that hack has completely changed the course of so many peoples lives.

There is always ethereum X)

Think hukd can expire this now.

definitely now.
