    I can't believe you lot are the Grinches that stole Higgin78's Christmas! He would have been perfectly happy! I loved ET on the Atari when I got it for Christmas, didn't realise what a crock of shit it was until being told years later on the internet.

    I bet he'll pick one up when the price is slashed.

    I'm confused.

    Shopto texted my wife yesterday to say the Wii U had been dispatched. But when we looked last night it said "processing" on the website.

    Guess that means tomorrow delivery, not today.

    We can always take it in turns to pretend to be Nintendo Zealots to pass the time?

    Thanks to some guy on AVforums, I dug out my old 199.99 32GB Premium pre-order cancellation email from Amazon from back in June, went on their online chat, and moaned that people who pre-ordered it during an exactly the same misprice in September all had their orders honoured. The bloke said "reorder, and I'll discount 100" :D So happy, also confirmed this morning that it'll arrive before Christmas.

    So if you had your 32GB Premium 199.99 Amazon preorder cancelled in June, get onto them and you should be able to get it for the same price (might take a few attempts on their online chat, depends who you get). Might have to wait a few weeks, but it'll be here before Chrimbo which is the main thing for me. The main thing is you need to play big on the September misprice, that is what your argument is solely based on.

    My Shopto order has now gone out to dispatch too.

    Interesting the Zavvi order for 299 (32GB ZombiU) is still listed at processing, but not actually taken the money or moved. Be interesting to see if that goes anywhere.

    Even better news is that the Amazon 32GB page has just changed (within the last half hour) to:

    "Want to receive this the day it comes out?
    Select One-Day Delivery at checkout."

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B008B5YB4W/ref=ox_ya_os_product

    So they have enough stock fullfil all pre-orders for release day now!! I went from 249.99 8GB Basic pre-order from Zavvi, to 199.99 32GB Premium "after 24th December" from Amazon yesterday afternoon, to 199.99 32GB Premium "Before Christmas" at 9am this morning, to 199.99 32GB Premium on release day 5 mins ago :) So very chuffed!

    Will Shopto not state delivery Nov30th to the courier? Would seem odd to break a release date of a new console.

    Ok gents, i have shocking news.

    My Wii U, which has been ordered from Asda was to be delivered by Yodel......has just arrived here at work!.

    Im genuinely in shock, i was expecting it either on Friday or Saturday to be honest.

    ZombiU for me tonight then :D

    Why? They do it all the time, you need to allow time for it to get to us.

    Mines been dispatched, might even get it today considering previous TNT deliveries.

    I'm pre-ordered with ShopTo as well. My order was removed from pre-orders yesterday and has gone into my orders list and its processing. I've had plenty of good experiences with ShopTo. Fingers crossed its despatched today!

    I got the Wii U ZombiU + Tekken Tag Tournament 2 + Mass Effect 3 Bundle for 360! Its now gone up to 415. Not bad I say.

    Couple of questions though:
    1. I pre-ordered multiple items, Wii U, 2 Wii Remotes, 2 Games (all due for release on the 30th). On my orders page they are all listed together under a single processing order. Will they arrive in the same box, or separately? (never received a large boxed product from ShopTo).

    2. I selected to have DPD as my courier as I've had good experience with them but for some reason its automatically gone with TNT (as of entering processing). Are TNT any good? I have never used them.

    3. Will I receive an email when my order is dispatched?

    4. Will I receive a tracking number?

    As has been said many times, just cancel the update and do it in the background.

    Couldnt resist, had to open the box and have a look.

    Its smaller than i thought it would be, very neat and tidy. Also, for what its worth, it looks much better in black.

    Just got to wait until half three now......unless......*cough*......i start feeling slightly ill.....*cough*..........*cough*.
