GameStation in dramatic u-turn! Now considering PS3 OtherOS refunds.

Following on from our story that retailer GAME offered a PS3 owner a 75GBP credit voucher due to the removal of OtherOS from the PS3 (on the proviso he kept his mouth shut), a number of MaxConsole users have decided to attempt getting a partial refund (using the same argument). And it seems to be working. Two of our users have reported that GameStation (under the GAME group of stores) have had something of a u-turn and are now asking each complainer to forward them proof of purchase and a contact number while they investigate the issue FURTHER

Hope this helps other people get partial refunds on thier 40, 60 and 80gb PS3's

Game are an awful company. they released a press statement a few months ago saying they're not going to close stores, fire staff, or cut hours. 3 months on and they've closed over 40 stores, 250 employees have lost their jobs, and they've either halved or more than halved staff hours. no one is allowed overtime or change of shift times. they are cutting hours to get around national insurance and other taxes, but also so everyone is classed as part time so they don't have to pay redundancy. i don't know what their profit was last year, but it was in the millions/billions.
so i wouldn't worry about whether they'll give you a refund or not. they probably will because they won't give a flying toss about breaking the rules

Ooo may have to chase something up with Blockbuster. At first I was unsure if I could as TBH my local BB is "very beshal". On new consoles they only give 6 month warranty, despite what HQ and the law says.

Noticed one shut down today on way to work, although it was opposite a gamestation and a 90sec walk from the other game store.

Has anyone had any information where we stand with hmv on this?
