They had the prices on their website, they should be honouring those prices.
The response was utter bollocks too... their intent was to have this as an instore only deal... but if they're willing to do these games at that price instore, they should be willing to do it online. We're paying postage per item already.

Oh well, might get me one of these vacuum cleaners that's pretty well discounted:

At least then I'm expecting it to suck (boom boom ching!).
Mine are marked as "shipped", go figure....

My order was 9 $1 games and a $2 and $5 item.

Went and had a look at local JB. Still had Diablo but I didn't want to line up for 30 minutes to buy a game that I'm only vaguely interested in.

PS3 section is tiny compared to what it used to be.

Wishing it was C&C3 with Kane's Wrath... but can't complain when it's a free game. Red Alert 2 with Yuri is still the best freebie they've given out... and I did get BF3 when it was free too.

You can currently get Shadow Complex for free from Epic Games during the holidays.

EDIT: I am not entirely sure if this just means you can play it for free during this time, or whether you get to keep it if you grab it during this time. Either way it requires the Epic Games launcher, which is a good excuse to play the new, and now very playable, Unreal Tournament.

EDIT 2: After some checking, you can indeed keep the game forever if you grab it now. And it is Shadow Complex Remastered (video below changed to reflect that)

Hi Michael

Thank you for your email.  Firstly I would just like to say sorry for the delay in responding to your enquiry below, we are experiencing higher than expected volume of enquiries at the moment and are currently operating outside our standard service levels.

What's your paypal account say?

I received a partial order and 2 paypal refunds (got another 30 cents yesterday)
Your order contained items that were part of a clearance activity on remanent stock that was intended to be sold in-store only, and not online. Unfortunately due to an error the clearance game stock incorrectly appeared for a short time online for purchase. Since your order was placed online, we have initiated a cancellation and refund of the following items on your order.

'Project Spark' (x4)

The refund will be made back to your original payment method. Please allow 2-3 days for the refund to appear on your transaction history. In the event that you used a gift voucher to pay for your order, a replacement e-gift card will be issued to you via email with 2 business days.
I got one copy of Project Spark @ $1, sent from my local store, total cost $2 (was $2.30 before yesterday)

My other order I received all 6 discounted items from a online warehouse (no store details on the invoice) which strangely enough included 3 copies of Project Spark.


In other News..

The EB Sale, I rang them today, they then emailed me the tracking numbers (2 orders), so it shows in transit, but I doubt it's even been sent yet.

My PayPal account shows the cost of the transaction going to JB and then two refunds. Even my credit card that PayPal is linked to shows the money going out and the back in. Well done JB. You've now stooped lower than my recent experience with Harvey Norman.

I wonder if Fair Trading are aware of it?

I normally get hyped up and go all out with complaints, but my last 2 complaints seemed to go nowhere and I have enough going on at the moment, so haven't bothered.

I just know that I've spend thousands at JB in home and car sound components and when they need replacing next time, I'll look elsewhere instead.

As I suspected.

Extract of email just received 90 minutes ago..
And away it goes!
Your order REMOVED is all bundled up and has just left our warehouse!
Funny, when I rang earlier, EB emailed me tracking details saying it left yesterday.

Origin's got EB beat for BF4 today, $19.99 for BF4 Premium. There's a couple of other enticing prices as well

https://www.origin.com/en-au/store/browse/on-sale?q=

Actually starting to become really impressed with Origin, their prices were the biggest reason I never touched their store, but they've come down so much in the last year that their sales have become competitive. If a little limited in scope.

Yeah, they had it down to $20 during the black Friday sales but I refrained from buying... still deciding atm whether I should cave in. Might go run some errands and dwell on it some more.
