Amazon and Play have this for £49.99 without the vouchers or quidco (well 2% play).

Please dont vote because you hate Sony or the PS3 - it might be a misprice so thats irrelevant! Be nice

Forgot to mention, it comes with this rather attractive (hurl) gun -

In Japan they get a black one - but we have an orange one just in case we decide to try to rob a bank with it!

Great price! Good find Russ :thumbsup:

I just checked back on an earlier thread and it may be a dupe though..

Nahh..this is nice clean thread - that other one got a bit muddled. Started as an Amazon deal then changed to Game. See what the mods think when they drop by

Ahh yeah I spose its at Game not Amazon. I wonder if Game will honour it?

i hope they do, i ordered this from the last thread, ages ago it seems now ( only because i have had some new games in the mean time).

good reminder though.

I noticed on the order that there was the statement below. Shouldn't they have to honour it as this will be a preorder?

"Note: The price quoted for a preorder title is the anticipated retail selling price at the time of release. Should the price be reduced you will be charged the lower price at the time of your order being dispatched. Should the price increase - you will not pay any more! Money is taken just prior to release."

Just out of curiosity, as they normally release a version with the gun and one without, how do you know this is the one with the gun as there is no info on the GAME page. The Amazon does state "with Gun".

Great spot by the way, if it is the one with the gun!

A new violent crimes reduction bill came into force on the 1st of October

that basically means if this was coloured black or grey then it would be

classed as a realistic imitation firearm :w00t: and it would therefore be

illegal for any retailer to sell it you without you having a specific defence

(airsofter, film director, etc). Even the sales of childrens toy guns and water

pistols (if not brightly coloured) is illegal although shops seem to not know

this :? Never fear though as although our government has made the sale of

these perfectly harmless realistic imitation guns illegal you can still go out

and buy a real shotgun (with a licence of course) :?

Just ordered a copy ... fingers crossed it's not mis priced.

Thanks op.

Ordered this.

Heat and Rep Added.

:pirate: CJ :pirate:

I'm 99% certain it'll come with the gun given that as of writing there's no other gun perierphal (sp?) on the market for the PS3

Hmmm....that looks like it has just a composite video connector. what do those of us connecting up with HDMI do?

Just ordered this - thanks a lot for the heads-up.

If it doesn't come with the gun, then it'll go back. But as the RRp seems to be £49.99, then I would assume it is with the gun.

I read they made a new gun for these games, the G-Con 3. The one up there looks the exact same as my blue PS2 one, but in orange.
Here is G-Con 3 (also orange, but thumb stick instead of D-Pad, and has a side Analog stick).

There's USB too

can't seem to order

cannot order ,, seems that the voucher can longer be used.

still you could get quidco. is that 11% say about £4.40 off the price still aint bad!!

Correct me if im wrong.

Does this gun use wires or is it bluetooth? If its bluetooth I'm tempted, wires shouldn't be seen on next gen consoles (exept to charge units).

That image looks like a mock-up of the gun. If you look closely, the thumbstick and buttons at the end dont look separate from the gun - they look moulded from the same piece.

Still, if that is the concept one, then the real one should at least have some decent functions

Voucher has expired! :-(

Hi,

Regardless of the poor ]Gamespot review, I was just about to order "Time Crisis 4" (with bundled "GunCon 3") from ]MovieTyme.com, instead of with a £20+ mark-up from various eBay sellers.

However, I noted that there would be downloadable content for extra "Crisis Missions", so I am hoping Sony don't close the door on US PlayStation Store access before then, and then thought... hang on... how would I play an offline 2-player game?

I can't seem to find a standalone "GunCon 3" for sale anywhere.

Has anybody else taken the credit card plunge yet & can offer a first-hand review, and/or have you found a source for a second controller?

Thanks.

BFN,

just had my conformation email that this is delayed but that it is still only gonna set me back £30 even though it is now £70 , which is nice.

i haqvent bothered pre ordering before, only went for this as these games tend to be rather amusing for a space of time.

Any ideas on what you're going to say?

I'm absolutely peeved about the fact they've done this, but I see how they can as we all pre-ordered "time crisis 4" but then it never mentioned solus or anything.

Its not just Game that gives this game awful reviews. Check any review and they hate this game.

Yup... [ gamerankings.com/htm…asp ].

It seemed to attract a large queue at the recent Play.com Live event though.

It's a gamble they take on with every new release. They set the price lower than their expectations of what their competitors will offer, with the hope that enough people will pre-order in order to use the large quantity as bargaining leverage will the suppliers to get a lower price per unit (to make more profit).

When the title does not attract enough pre-orders, they end up either not making enough profit, no profit or, in extreme cases, a loss on every title sold at the pre-order price.

They then issue an e-mail to say orders are being cancelled, but offering a discount to get the item "cheaper" than everybody else who didn't pre-order (although in this case, even with the £5 voucher code their pricing was higher than others).

In the two-hour window before they retract the cancellations, some punters accept the circumstances, and cancel. Some re-order and GAME make (claw back) some more money on the stock they had to buy in at a higher price than they wished.

Others, however, hold on (or just are not able to accept the cancellation e-mail at that time; like myself in this instance), and then find that GAME then issue a further e-mail promoting how good their customer service is (now).

This, in turn, gives a warm feeling of being loved by GAME really, and those punters report how good GAME is on various forums & in the long term they gain more customers for future price-set gambling.

Alternatively, then again, they could just be an appalling shambles without a GAME-plan at all (if you’ll pardon the pun).


Keep an eye on the price of this title a week or two after the release date. In order to shift the unwanted stock that (not only) GAME had to buy-in to get any sort of deal from the suppliers they will have to offer a reduction in the shelf price to make way for the next “must have” (or not) title.

They still try it on in the high street stores though. Putting the price up above the web site price, and when they reduce by £15-£20 online, they’ll only drop the price in-store by £10.

Everybody loves a bargain & when you see a “Deal of the Week” sticker on a relatively recent release, you are drawn towards it even if you didn’t really want it in the first place. £10 off is £10 saved. Regardless of whether you had to spend 40 notes to save the tenner, or not.

My order of "Time Crisis 4 with G-Con [PlayStation 3]" (£34.99) has been despatched to me by GAME today (at 1:50pm).

Hope everybody else who is expecting this for Friday is just as lucky.
