    I have dealt with the above company twice now in a month and have never received the items I paid for. I have had to issue a paypal dispute twice now for 2 different items. They say they have things in stock when they haven't and they never answer emails.

    OK Rant mode over

    Anyone managed to get an order, or even how to place an order.

    Do we think that they will release or just a technical error

    I take no responsibility for this whatsoever but the following link, as of this writing, would allow you to add one to your cart:

    http://www.gameseek.co.uk/basketaddp.php?pid=NintendoWii8hcn5f49y

    However, I ain't brave enough to actually click on the order confirmation button as a) it looks like a cock-up on the website and b) even if it wasn't there's a big "we cannot guarantee dispatch in time for Christmas on any order" disclaimer on the order page.

    just a bit of creative thinking.
    Used the code for the wii and cut and paste from url redirect for any other add to basket offer on site

    I think it's probably cheating, and may compromise you actually getting one, if they notice (and they really are in stock). Depends whether they take kindly to the link being used. Having said that, the product code is proudly proclaimed in the URL of the search results after a search for wii, so it's not exactly unreasonable to claim you were just getting around a problem on their site, since they are claiming it's in stock after all.

    I was debating wether or not to post that too ;)

    All it took was abit of copying and pasting.

    I would really advise against going through with the purchase however. It looks like the system they use will charge you immediately. Doesn't look like they wait till dispatch. If it is a mistake then they will get a ton of orders over night and will just have to give all the money back lol.

    If you think it's worth the risk then go ahead. But be prepared to phone them up in the morning and get them to refund you.

    Yep, 'tis not the most secure of on-line systems I've ever seen (and if said system doesn't check stock availability before adding to the cart, it's probably going to cause some grief as well).

    By the way, if you ARE considering doing this, from their "How to order" link:

    What happens if I order an item that is not in stock?
    If an item is out of stock when you place your order, it will automatically be entered into our purchase ordering system. Our purchasing team process orders on a daily basis and items are normally received within 3-6 working days from our suppliers. However, some items may not be received within this time frame due to stock availability issues or items being withdrawn or deleted by the distributor. Should this occur, we will endevour to update you as soon as possible.

    So, in other words, we do no live stock checking and if it's out of stock tough. Oh, and we take payment up front to deter thieves (apparently) so thanks for the christmas bonus.

    Or I could be overly cynical. Bah humbug
