Dabs.com's £249 Xbox bundle blooper

13 angry customers, but the e-tailer makes good

Earlier this week, it emerged that several Dabs.com customers placed orders for the company's "Xbox Ultimate Bundle" (consisting of the console, memory card, extra controller and three games) for £249 ex-VAT, an obvious oversight on the e-tailer's part. This was quickly corrected to £379 ex-VAT, and the 13 customers who couldn't believe their luck were kicked to the curb and warned of increased delays and the higher price tag. As repeatedly witnessed in the past however, mounting pressure from the press (including El Reg, for their part) and consumers alike has led to the e-tailer rescinding its original decision and opting to supply the 13 lucky gamers with their new toys at the incorrectly advertised price, as a gesture of goodwill, once stock is allocated.
