It piqued my interest so I listened in on the conversation and she mentioned that it was going in the study for her grandkids to play with when they came around. I don't know if he didn't hear her or ignored her or whatever but he kept right on through telling her how much like the Wii it was and eventually left her to her own devices.
She was picking up the most expensive bundle (game with 3 games I think) so I felt like I had to tell her about the space she would need (at least 6 feet or 8 feet for 2 players with some lateral space). I said she might be able to get away with less but it would have different results on different games. She was really shocked and told me she was putting it in her study so it would be no good. She then left the shop.
It just made me wonder how many people are going to experience the same problem on Christmas day. Although it might have been a genuine mistake from the staff guy ti felt pretty underhanded that he was selling ehr this 250+ piece of kit but not explaining the requirments for it.
Shame on HMV!
