Yesterday I bought a Resident Evil 5 boxset which includes a black wireless controller for £29.99. On the box it says "not to be sold without an Xbox 360 console", but the guy on the till either didn't notice or didn't care! The set was cheaper than the game alone (currently £34.99 instore). I guess I was just lucky but hopefully you will be too!!

omg, this will not be available to all though

This is less a deal and more a mis-sell. Won't be voting either way.

HOT

although it will be very hard to come acrosss....

I'd expect availability to be like the wireless entertainment pack( indy,panda & controller). Disallowed from sale for a while as it is meant to be a console deal but in time retailers will sell despite.

Great if you can get. I have already got 5 and 2 controllers but at this price I would still keep and eye out.

Banned

*cough*

I'll reserve my vote till someone else gets it at this price. No doubt it will be 1000+ degrees by the end of the day lol

Looks like you got a hell of a deal, as it's £77.98 on Amazon:

amazon.co.uk/exe…-21

Can't you just stick it through the self checkout?

i'm guessing not... wouldnt they have to get the actual disc from the back?

No otherwise shoplifters would get them 4 free

hot if more than 1 person can get it! not voting yet!

cold and this shouldn't even be a deal. Should make up a new section called 'luck'

Thanks for un-expiring. Hope a few people can get in on this deal! Anyone else manage to bag one?

Yes you were lucky but this is not an offer that is available. I have been there and done it before with Asda and they do not sell these seperately unless you get some O.A.P at the games department who has no idea or someone from the Butchers department who is just covering that section for some strange reason then you have a chance.

This is not exactly a deal where you can walk into a store and buy it hastle free. Voted Cold for that reason alone.

But your a lucky git. I wish my Asda had people who didn't care but they are probably trained or don't have temps. But out of curiosity shouldn't the controller be red?

:thumbsup:

Agreed.

Think i'll have to try my luck, cheers for this.

hot deal. shame its 360.

I just picked one up, was in getting Halo3 and saw this in the cabinet behind, asked for it and was sold it at £29.99, the woman behind the counter even commented on how good a price it is.

Stupid people keep expiring this lol

Not really a deal.

Sorry seems like someone was a numpty on the counter.

Maybe one other person might get a bit of luck with this but I very much doubt it.

iv been to 2 asda's today, both had the bundle but was told it had to be bought with a console.......
Dont no why people keep saying its not a deal as I no its hit and miss as to if you can get 1 but I would rather no about the deal than not no!
The last deal like this with (kun fu panda/lego indie) I got 2 of them and went back a day later and got another 2 and my friend got 8 so its not im sure alot of other people managed to get some....prob the same with this deal.

popped into my local ASDA earlier in the hope that i could get in on this deal - but was turned away with the "this can only be purchased with the console" line.

:-(

longshot, but if anyone has any luck, could you pick one up for me aswell - i'll pay P&P

Does the game mention bundle copy on it anywhere?
Might try my luck... give the game away as a present and keep the extra controller myself.

It says so along the top in a small green bar, but it's not massively obvious if the person on the till is in a rush or doesn't know to look for it ;-)

is that on the bundle box or on the game case

Sorry krabappel what I meant was does the game (box or disc) mention that it is a bundle copy?

Can't see from your picture.

I was SO SO close to getting this!!! So close that Im still in shock!! lol

Went in and asked for it and he had a look and got one out for me, scanned it and it came to £29.99, as he was putting it in the bag for me he noticed "Not to be sold seperatly" and took it back out the bag and said he cant sell it as it needs to be bought with the console!!!

I was so excited when it was going in the bag and then completely let down

Im going to keep trying, will wait till an old person is on the till

If you can get it its good but I was just thinking, in a few months it will be down to £15 - £20 anyway and a wireless pad can be had on ebay for £10 - £20 so nothing to get too depressed about

Oh right, sorry, It says not to be sold separately where the barcode should be on the game case. Disc is normal. Controller just has a "bundle" sticker that can be peeled off.

if your adsa has them tell them to sell you it as it has been priced for a reason, the ones for sale in argos have the same writting on the top of the box (not to be sold seperatly) but will happily sell you them cheers

the copy of res evel has no barcode ............ hense the bundle copy................

Brilliant - just got this today! My tip? Go to an old Asda, where the Entertainment isn't a seperate part - those people always know their onions. I went to the main help desk, someone radioed into the back, and they brought one out.

Rep added! Sorry I can't add heat, I am brand new, I only signed up to say thanks Krapabbel!

which ASDA did you go to? just about to go look in the one on Old Kent Road in SE London - anyone managed to get one in London?

Would they still accept it at CEX or anywere else as a exchange .?

no luck on Old Kent road, they were out of Elites, and had no game+controller packs. i might give the one in Charlton a go tomorrow... anyone else tried other places in London?
