Hi every1, just wondering if anyone knows where I can get hold of a couple of nintendo wii's. I ordered some off the internet on the 2nd of December and had an email confirmation to say that I would receieve them before the 15th. They didnt come on saturday and I have just receieved an email today saying that because they cannot process everyones payments (the streamline company that processes payments for them has withdrawn their services) they cant send the goods out and wished us a merry christmas!!! Can anyone help as Im gonna let a few people down and they were for presents for xmas day HEEELLLLLPPPPPPPP

Are they good Rex? I cant believe that they have sent me that email this morning having ordered them on the 2nd of December I thought I was being well organised and giving myself plenty of time to get them delivered even if there was a delay!! It cant take 15 days to realise that they cant process your payment, most annoyingAngry

My local Argos had them on Saturday - check out their web site cos you can view availability at a number of stores, and reserve on line.

http://www.wiipreorder.co.uk/ is your friend.

Alternatively head over to mainland Europe, plenty of stock readily available over there.

You could contact one of the local wrexham delivery drivers. Read in the paper the theiving scum was nicking every other wii to sell on. They are great though, especially when drinking in a group, right laff then.

Bundling is illegal. You cannot force a consumer top pay that. Game know this and yet tell people otherwise.
