Viva pinata, Forza 2 and a wireless controller for the 360 for £29.99
If like me you missed out on this deal a few week ago, I found this in store at my local PC world (westwood cross, Margate.)
It's not showing up online, but there were plenty instore - on the floor with the 360 games.
The pack was not price marked, so i asked one of the guys on the tills - came up at £29.99.
The guy had to check with the manager whether he could sell it to me - the pack is covered in writing which reads "not to be sold separately - must be sold together with an xbox 360 console"
The manager confirmed it was fine to sell to me.
Don't know if this is nationwide or just this one store - but there were half a dozen there when I bought it, which was at around closing time today.
Also, worth noting they also had a pack with forza 2 and a wireless controller - this was price labelled at £34.99 and there were loads of these.
Hope this helps someone.

edit: available online too. Use the code YAWDE7 to get 5% off.

it should not be sold separately because these packs are made purely for packages, which you will see online at pcworld.co.uk any way.

by selling these packs separately, the manager is simply causing package deals to be not available, and therefore he will lose profit and margin later when customer wants said packages with xbox360.

up to the manager.

Possibly but this is the same deal as was available with (if memory serves) sainsburys and zavvi - so it leads me to think they are clearing excess stock - also the Forza 2 pack (without viva pinata) was clearly price marked as £34.99 - would that be legal if it wasn't for sale at that price?

Decent deal.

Looks like it's been found - I couldn't find it when I searched for it!
The product number matches the number on the reciept - didn't realise that's how to search for it.
It'll be nationwide then.
Thanks a lot Grambo.

in stock in manchester (stretford) and stockport

Hi,

To anyone who bought one of these...

Are the 2 games specially packaged into one box/case? or if they are separate 360 boxes do they have the big marking on the box 'bundle copy' or similar....??

Thanks

i've been after one of these packages for a while!! cheers!!
i think they are in their normal boxes but have BUNDLE COPY printed on them

they will have bundle on.

Tried ordering online but wont let me, seems to get stuck when confirming delivery, its says click on continue but nothing happens. Oh well saved me £30 i suppose

just a pointer the games are in a 2 in 1 case so they are NOT separate

the controller just has a bundle sticker on

Though cex will let you trade the games in - £14 cash or £18 trade cex.co.uk/pro…101 at those prices not worth trading, though have seen them go for some goods prices on ebay.

Edit: Scrap the Ebay mention - just seen 2 go for £14 + £2 p&p

Does the controller have bundle actually written on it?
And cool just reserved one heat left!

The controllers on ebay show a black sticker just on the packaging with Bundle Copy - Not for ReSale.
I'm guessing this cannot be removed, otherwise the sellers would have removed them before placing on ebay. Though they still seem to be selling for £25/£26 each.

Spotted this myself last week when searching their website for cheap games!

Reserved one online but they wouldn't sell it to me when I went to pick it up.

They said they can't sell them without an Xbox 360.

It disappeared from the website a couple of days later, but I guess it has re-appeared again!

I'm guessing that is true, but if i don't recieve a phone call prior to collection, i'll put my foot down in the store. Nowhere does it state on the product page that you have to purchase a console as well, which is false advertising.

lol - fantastic :-D

I just checked local store there in stock, for some mad reason i thought free delivery on everything used the 5% off then discovered i would be charged £5 postage would be handier if i was to buy anything else off there before tuesday as there's free delivery on all orders over £50 till tuesday.

managed to order online, but for some reson if you go via quidco it wil not allow you to order online??

Anyway remember the 5% off code YAWDE7

:thumbsup:

do you no if you can the 10% discount for being an employee with this deal???

Can anyone get this to go through online for delivery? I tried instore but after scanning it and telling me the price he saw the "Not to be sold seprately thing and asked his manager and didn't sell it to me.

EDIT: Same with the Currys site Posted earlier.

yeah me two, guess you have to be lucky to get this.

YAY!!

Thanks OP, just ordered this online

(took about 20 attempts to get through the checkout though!!)

Merry Xmas!

i reserved one and recieved a phone call saying it was a mistake on the site and they wont honour it.

I managed to reserve online this morning and picked up in-store this afternoon. :thumbsup:

However, I was waiting in store for a long time whilst two members of staff rush around the store trying to find the box. Eventually another guy got involved (holding a clipboard and not talking to customers - must be the manager ). Lots of talking between them and then a box was brought out from the store room which they gave to me and sent me on my way - it's very clearly marked with "Only to be sold with an Xbox 360 console, not to be sold separately"

Perhaps they have honoured a few today but are now pulling it because the stores have contacted central office along the lines of "We've had to sell some of these because they were reserved but according to the packaging we shouldn't be"??

Yh i had loads of trouble, They wouldnt sell it said this site had jacked the bolt on for a console, the guy just wouldnt budge then another guy came back and said they had to sell it cos it had been reserved then the other guy wouldnt but this guy said he was just going off on one and would rig head office
Head office said that they had to sell me it but at 4 oclock it was beign pulled
Cheers

Aye - I've got the first two e-mails; I'm waiting on the third.

i reserved two at pcworld in farnborough but they couldnt physically find them. they said currys had sixteen in stock, but when i called they told me they were to be sold with a console only. i've just ordered two on pcworld website. £5 delivery but used the YOUATWORK code to save £3.

After a series of phone calls today, including 2 to the duty manager of a store, I am having my reservation honoured.
Only now my OH says we don't need it and can't afford the £30.

So, if anyone is wanting one, and willing to pick it up from the Southampton store tomorrow, pm me and i'll give you the details:)

There life in this one yet!!

Guildford PC World 10am this morning ..No hassle, one very confused CS person, one (not to be sold seperately) box through the till, one happy customer

anyone had this delivered?

Not available on PC World site anymore.
