is this the official play and charge kit?

Good deal

great deal. the play and charge alone cost you more than this.

Be aware the customer service and delivery times for these are truly awful - placed an order last monday with "express shipping" and my order still hasn't even been dispatched. The websites contact us link does not work also. When I eventually did find an e-mail address for them I've had no response. Will never use them again even - some awesome prices but not worth the hassle. Have had to go through paypal to start a dispute and get my money back

you could try contacting them on facebook? I only ever used them for the 1 euro deals way back..

Argh, literally just ordered... oh well, will wait and see.

Site looks well made etc. I guess its the back end customer services that is lacking...

Looks genuine as the 3rd party ones have you plug the charger in directly into the battery rather than the top of the controller.

Good selection of games with this.

You do realise that Gamestop are mainly an American company with stores and most of those reviews are American?

I think people are mixing the recent launch of Gamestop.co.uk with the US operation & Gamestop Ireland.

Whether the .ie & .co.uk sites are operated & based in the same place I don't know but customer service seems excellent to me.

I sent 2 emails in the last hour or so. 1 got a reply in 20 minutes, the other in 5 minutes, friendly & helpful.

Haven't ordered with them yet mind!


See above for my comments - they have only recently launched their uk site but so far customer service has proven to be absolutely zero with no response to e-mails and no orders being set out despite paying extra for express shipping. You'd expect better from such a massive US force in retailing (comments in relation to gamestop.co.uk not .ie

Seen your comments above. Was replying in response to them. Should have quoted.

Thanks. Ordered, worth it for the Play & Charge Kit alone. All my batteries are knackered.

Took the risk - paid by PP - Cheers

They are both operated and based in Ireland.

really doubt the play and charge is official. great deal if it is otherwise you're just paying for the games because every unofficial one I've used has been useless.

Hi there,

first ever post on HotUKDeals so beware -

looking at my play and charge kit vs the one advertised in this offer, this cannot be a genuine Microsoft play and charge kit, here's why

At the root of the USB cable: Microsoft play and charge kit will have 'Microsoft' on one side and a label on the other - this gamestop play and charge kit has neither.

At the head of the Official Microsoft Play and charge kit, there is a: barcode, microsoft label and an indented circle next to the controller port entry - this gamestop image shows NONE of these either.

Hope this helps.

Still a decent deal though.

ooops, ordered before realising it wasn't an official Play and Charge kit. Didn't even realise that other companies made kits in that configuration. Oh well, so long as it works it's still a bargain. Some very good games included that would cost more on Live if bought seperately so still a good deal.

I quote:

"Hi

Its 3rd party.

Kind regards,
GameStop.co.uk"

Even if not the Offical Microsoft Play and Charge Kit it will probably do the same job as one, be about £10 less and even come with a few Arcade Games! Ordering mine now!

Lumines Live
Geometry Wars 2
Bomberman Live

Are games it says on link, should probably fix OP. They're 2400MSP in total, so probably worth it.

Ordered mine, the cheap third party ones I got on ebay, the charging cables snapped they were so thinly shielded and taccy. hopefully this one has more substance to it.

Never played Bomberman but heard it's good, Geometry Wars is ace and just awesome to look at as it is and Lumines looks fun to master.

And you get a download code in the box for Ms. Pacman.

If you just want the games somebody has thousands of the things on Ebay for £3.95 which is where I got mine.

Was a good deal until I realised it's not an official play and charge. Don't waste your money, the battery will be useless within a month, buy the real thing instead!

I got play n charge for £2 from fleabay and the cables gave in before the battery, otherwise they were excellent.

Sure official stuff is nice but it's not as if it's the only thing that will serve the purpose!

I wouldn't even recommend the real thing. Every play and charge kit I've bought has ended up broken. The connected eventually dies, failing to power the battery and/or the controller. Its happened to a lot of my friends too. Buying other rechargeable batteries (I have Sanyo eneloops) is infinitely more beneficial in my opinion. They last much longer, they can be used in any device and they don't break.

Got my despatch e-mail this afternoon... So, at least you get the product your ordered!

Hot deal*

*but the fast charge kit is much better than the play n charge kit imo

Received this morning, and yes, they are non-genuine, brand is GXP.

Now, do I take the hit on the postage sending them back, or just try it anyway, decisions, decisions.

Cheers, Des.

Same here. Ah, i'll see how well the battery lasts.

Games are cheap without the Play & Charge Kit. Ordered. Hot. nice!

Just wanted to add - my game box/inserts were all in French!!!
Although the games do work fine, and in English....
