    So... Still no better than 300 for the ZombiU price?
    The best price for ZombiU bundle is now 319.99.

    Just added Gameseek who are now cheapest on the Basic and Premium bundles, equal cheapest on ZombiU bundle.
    Gameseek charge for shipping 6.99 for a Wii-U so not cheapest. Have put an order in for the Shopto one myself - though I struggle to understand my own thinking.
    Okay, I did not know that, will double-check and update accordingly. Makes me wonder if there are any others which are charging delivery, on the list.

    @SteveEvil Have you had a new e-mail discount this week? Still no sign of any in my inbox. :(

    Just to add, got no e-mail last week about the weekly pre-order offer from Zavvi, so be interested to hear from anyone if they did, or if they've just abandoned that idea.

    Edit: Didn't realise this had gone to page 2, so didn't see the above question before writing.

    that's a nice deal, I just put an order in. I have the ZombiU pack ordered at amazon but that is costing 331 including postage

    Amazon now have the basic pack back in. I'm hoping they have a few deluxe bundles for at the least for launch week to invoke a little price competition with other retailers to knock say 20 quid of the current price.

    Shopto's bundles seem pretty good, Nintendo should be making them the launch partner rather than Game, who are, after ebay resellers, officially the highest price possible - plus Shopto still have the loyalty points anyway. The Zombi U + 2 games bundle is effectively giving you 2 extra games for the price of one.

    I dunno if shopto can't honour customers who've already ordered ones position in the queue then they aren't a great place to partner wuth. At least the Game lot will give you a call to add games to an order at bundle price, and amazon would too.

    I have been asking about this on twitter and they don't know stock levels and won't update pre-orders and will charge as soon as they recieve stock.

    So Shopto apparently dont actually have any idea how many they are getting and are just blithely taking preorders without making that clear ? /fail

    TBH unless Nintendo or someone steps in and starts to actually be clear about the ever growing mess they are making of this launch then I'm probably just going to leave it, early reviews of some Wii U titles are not exactly blisteringly good.

    They know how many they're getting, just not exactly when, apparently.

    Which by most reasonable people's definition is not know how many they are getting. Still I notice the 369.99 bundle has now gone up to 399.99? Thought it was a bit good at that price to be honest.

    @chrisno21 - Game will certainly call you if you order instore, but given they are quoting the most EXPENSIVE price outside of eBay I wouldnt hold my breath for anything involving saving more than 5 - already they are charging 349 for Zombi U compared to Shopto's 325 for the same thing and they cannot argue loyalty points as Shopto's are worth more anyway! Game dont even give double on hardware preorders anymore....

    Are Nintendo trying (again?) to create a panic buying mentality among potential punters?

    Oh I completely agree, the tone in their tweet to me wasn't the most sympathetic either.

    Shopto and Twitter do not have a great history of giving a toss about their customers, or potential customers in this case. I suppose from their point of view, if someone else doesnt buy it, another will, really no odds to them at all is it ?
  • Deleted user 5 November 2012 16:46:47
    How much?!!

    Just spoken to them and they say launch window is 2 weeks, i will have to cancel one of them or get charged twice as there is no way to add items to an already ordered item via a (user-specific) code but they are sending out an email to all pre-order(ers) soon with more info and maybe help to decide which one to keep.

    I'm thinking i'll keep the 369 one and try morrisons/tesco on the day/night if shopto can't deliver.

    You do know how important that two week wait really is don't you?

    Exactly.


    Okay I do realise its hardly important, I'd like it sooner naturally, especially as I have the day off from work and time is precious as it is. Supermarkets may also provide a good deal so I may get lucky even if shopto can't get me the better priced bundle.

    Anyone got any opinions on Asda for preorders? I can get a good discount through a mate but would rather get it at launch than wait. Got a shopto preorder in, but no idea where I am in the cue.

    If it's early enough, they usually have a pre-order guarantee for day of release, at least for games, but that usually disappears in the week leading up to the release date. If that's still available, then it can't hurt to place a pre-order with them, as they've proved to be reliable the couple of times I've used them.

    Seems Amazon have some more Premium bundles to order... perhaps unlikely for release day though?
  • Deleted user 9 November 2012 12:21:22
    its says on the page, any order placed after the 5th won't be there for release date. Its up for general sale now, but you will have to wait for shipments.

    Shall I keep quiet about the fact they take the VAT off since I'm in the Channel Islands? Makes my Premium Wii U just over 160!

    I'd be interested in getting a WiiU but not quite yet. TBH the price seems a little steep so might wait until a possible prive drop to something closer to the Wii.

    Just be aware, there's definite indications that the WiiU is bring sold at a loss, so it's unlikely there will be any reduction in the trade price in the immediate future.
