Seems everywhere is getting Nintendo back orders in stock on the 5th...... crazy to think you could get this for £40 only 1month ago! hotukdeals.com/dea…423

Charge now or on dispatch?

Unless you're desperate for the adapter ASAP I'd probably buy the game for £30-35 then pick up the adapter for £18-20 whenever they get more stock.

I'd also note that the 5th was the original release date for this and yet Amazon etc now have mid-December as the date when they'll get more adapters in stock, so I'd potentially take the release date with a pinch of salt.

Personally I'm only needing the adapter for new years to bolster controller numbers so I'm not too fussed. Decided i should probably move onto am updated controller for regular play.

oos

Nintendo aren't making any more of these adapters that's why they are selling for silly money. If you don't get one now, you won't get one St all. There are third party ones but they only fit one controller

I obviously ordered one before I posted the deal. Maybe that was the only one!

That's just speculation as not been confirmed anywhere.

Game alone cost me £30.90 from TheGameCollection so with the adapter it'd be about £48-ish still less than this, but considering it's going for £100 it's an OK deal, I guess.

Zavvi had it too, and I ordered the Smash Bundle from them rather from an unreliable worthy retailer who possibly unseals the copies of products advertised as "New". Their customer service was appalling too, instead of apologising for something they did wrongly themselves they just said that "sometimes" things like these happen, sometimes.. yeah right. Review Centre is filled with unhappy customers from Grainger Games too.

Plus, there was also the GAME misprice which they sold Smash Bundle for £25.

The Mayflash which you are referring [third party] they do work but there's times you gotta do a trick for it to work properly, but Mayflash has said they'll be releasing a 2.0 version.

I doubt that given they short stocked most suppliers who still need to fill their orders. Do you have a source?

It's been confirmed in USA by the doctors that make them. How this effects Europe remains to be seen but it's pretty sure fire we will fall in line with them. They won't keep making millions of these when they only work with one game.

They'll keep making them if they'll keep selling. Nintendo is also the one company which does actually treat Europe differently from the usa so i wouldn't take that as confirmation.

how come this 'deal' is still alive?

The factory (not doctors, i put in my other post!) have posted something on twitter about how nintendo havent asked them to any more of these adapters. I'll try and find the post.

Tasha Greene from Nintendo of America has stated that they're producing more NGC Adapters so they're coming, it's just a matter of waiting until the new batch is available for purchase.

Well they took my money on Thursday and still nothing has arrived.

Anyone got theirs?

Well I don't know if anyone did get theirs, but I chased mine up and its not coming. Got offered the game only - cancelled the whole thing
