    @YenRug Not sure about that. He just apologised and said he'd refund me, but I complained and he got a bit flustered, walked off to check they had the Wii-U version and said he'd give me it at the agreed price. It was more him being a decent sort than any kind of legal obligation.

    @BOBBYLUPO That's what I've been trying to figure out, though, they've presented it to you as just "doing the right thing", but in reality it might have been the legal thing.

    @Slurmseh There's that 5 off Amazon link floating around a few posts up, in case you weren't aware - doubt you'll find it cheaper than 30 at the moment.

    @YenRug honestly it's not. If you've paid for something, and the item you receive doesn't conform to the contract (i.e. it's the wrong game) then you have a couple of options available to you. You're entitled to a refund, or you can get the seller to replace the goods at their own expense. But the seller can refuse to do so if replacing the item would be disproportionate to other means (i.e. if it's cheaper to give you a refund).

    Basically, there's no legal right that ever binds a shop into having to stick to a typo; Argos is a little different in that you pay for the item before you see it, but the same applies to Amazon etc. If they mailed you out the wrong item by mistake, you're not legally entitled to keep it.

    @CosmicFuzz If you are sold an item at a lower price than it's intended to be, however, the retailer cannot force you to pay the difference afterwards; that is a confirmed legal position for high-street retailers, which is why I was wondering where it stood with Argos.

    Annoyingly, I can't go through to the link given on this page to go directly to Which?, but I'll quote from the quote given:

    http://www.ukbusinessforums.co.uk/threads/sale-of-good-act-and-the-incorrect-price-online.243886/#post-1893124


    If prices are advertised incorrectly

    It is against the law for a trader to deliberately give misleading or wrong prices, and they can be prosecuted for doing this.
    However, if the price of a product is just simply wrongly labelled you don't automatically get to buy it for that price. For example, if a TV worth 599 has accidentally been labelled as 5.99 you don't, unfortunately, have a right to buy it for 5.99.

    A retailer's right to refuse to sell

    When a retailer displays a product for sale, legally it is giving you 'an invitation to treat', which means it is inviting you to make an offer to buy. The retailer can refuse that offer if it decides that it doesn't want to sell you the goods. To have a legally-binding contract the retailer must have accepted your offer to buy. So your rights depend on where in the sale process you are.
    Before you pay

    If you take a wrongly-priced item to the till and the assistant spots it, they can refuse to sell it to you for that price. If you order an item on the internet, you don't have a legally-binding contract until the retailer has contacted you to confirm the order. If the wrong price is spotted before the retailer confirms the order, they do not have to sell to you at that price.

    After your order has been accepted

    If your offer has been accepted (for example, you pay a deposit, or receive a confirmation email), generally you can insist that the retailer sells you the goods for the price they were advertised at.

    If the retailer wants to charge you more, you may be able to buy the same item elsewhere and claim against the original trader for the difference in price. To do this you should write to the retailer in the first instance, explaining what you are doing. If it doesn't agree to refund you the money, you will normally then have to take a claim to the small claims court.

    The trader could try to argue that it made a mistake with the pricing which could make the contract void. But it would have to show that the price was so low that you must have known it was not genuine: for example, a new leather jacket with a price tag of 2 on it.

    After the transaction is completed

    If a retailer sells you something at the wrong price, the transaction is completed and you have your goods, it can't insist that you pay the extra at a later date.
    Surely the italicised section applies here?

    Whilst Argos could argue it's an "obvious mistake", I could cite my personal expience of buying the Vita version of Injustice, they offered and delivered pre-orders at 12.99 even though it's now listed at 29.99; so they have a provable history of making significant discounts.

    Argos doing the Xbox One Titanfall Bundle with either Thief or FIFA included for 399.

    Great price and puts it under PS4 price.

    @YenRug hmm that's rather interesting. I wonder if Argos might have put themselves into a bit of a corner with their silly system then.

    That IS tempting. But still not decided which console to get. And I isn't getting both.

    To be honest, much like last generation, you really should try your best to get both.

    In which case screw the next gen and get a PS3, you'll have a lot more fun on that than either of the new ones for at least the next year or so.

    Well I now thinking about screwing them both and going back to the PC. I really miss the strategy games. Just got to convince the GF that a PC sitting in the living room plugged up to the TV is necessary.

    For both people who didn't buy it, HMV Manchester are selling Bioshock: Infinite for 11.99 new. It is in the pre-owned section but is clearly new. They are marked at 39.99 but are 70% off.

    I'm assuming most stores will have them.

    If you can read this, you don't need glasses.

    Anyone interested in Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition on PS4 for 25/26?

    Currently down to 26, but with enough people in the next 3~4 hours it drops down to 25.

    In two minds about it, myself, but seems to be pretty much the cheapest price at the moment.

    Co-buy programme with Gameseek

    It's a good game and the visuals are lush on PS4, I wasn't sure but glad I gave it a go at 30.

    Damn - my daughter just asked for ps vita for her birthday next month :/ Possibly because I influenced her a little. Still, with a ps+ sub, I think the vita makes the most sense as we have a few games I've hoarded over the past few months.

    Anyone know of any deals on a vita? I can't see anything really bargainy.

    I've noticed that the 14.99 Wii U Party bundle now has the original Wii Party picture but the description still says Wii U.

    Perhaps that's why I got offered the wrong one. A cock up on their site.
