They had plenty in stock in Watford store this morning and on-line availability.

As somebody has pointed out you can also go to PC World (next door in Watford) and use their price match policy to get it for even less.

Can you edit your title to show the correct price.

Thanks for feedback. Edit the title.

Anyone found a black kit instore?

Good price online if you can find a free delivery code.

£12.99 in the Milton Keynes Toys R Us and they wouldn't budge on reducing the price either (just got back).

Won't vote cold on that basis but won't vote hot either as I need one but can't find one at that price!

just priced matched it with pc world got 1 for £7 & got 1 from currys price match for £7 heat added

there are no free delivery codes (afaik!) sadly so not that great unless you can find it for this price in store!

Was looking at this last night funnily enough, then poof! On here it comes,.. no joy with the free del code though.

Am presently ringing my local stores to see if they can hold one for me at £7.49, but so far sold out at Bolton/Ancoats/Altrincham/Stockport and Warington. Arrgh!

Ah well, Game do an official black version for £9.98, off to try PC World now, lol.

EDIT: PC world do price match YAY! Off to collect a couple now. Thanks imi44!!

will pc world match online or does it have to be with a store?

None in stock at my local toysrus. What's the process for pricematching at PC World? Do I take a print out? Or do they ring up toysrus and ask for the price?

can you use these to connect to your pc like a normal wired conrtoller?

really want a microsoft crossfire but they are out of stock everywhere at a reasonable price (£12.99)

No it will charge the controller but it wont reconise it as a game pad. You will need crossfire (i had one but it just died after a few trys of it, there ****) just get a wired pad for £17.99 on play.com. Thats what i did to play Halo 2 and Viva Pinata and such, wanted the extra achievements!!!

just go to pc world, they will check online price, but depends on whos serving u, if they dont know what they are doing they will give u it at that price plus 10% off but if the person knows they will ring local toysrus to check if in stock, which in this case my pc world did not ring to check neither did currys brought 1 from each store

Both I think. I've attached a link in the description and here - pcworld.co.uk/mar…ise. Beware though that depending on who you talk to in store they may have a different interpretation of what it means, so if you are going into the store then probably best to print it off.

Here's the policy.

pcworld.co.uk/mar…ise

probably best to print it off and take it with you if you go into store. Worth printing the page from Toys R Us as well.

They normally check the internet price and (depending on the competance of the person serving you) add internet order postage costs if there are none in stock at local stores.

Nice find, good price for that.

However its cheaper and more useful just to get good AA rechargeable batteries and use in other items as well

Heat added all the same

Do you know you can get a proper 'Windows' version for PC? e.g. play.com/PC/…tml

the "use in other devices as well" is the part I dont like about rechargeable batteries. Mine always seem to go walkies. At least if you get the xbox ones you know no-one is going to nick them.

Can you provide the product code for the 1 you got price matched, as there seem to be 3 different versions on the Currys website?
