    I got the Band of Brothers DVD boxset from Game today for £19.99 for the tinned version. BARGAIN!. Thsi is currently in their sale which is only instore. At teh moment their is no more in the store but they can be sent out.

    If you phone this number 0800 317778 you can get in touch with their customer services. They will then send the Band of Brothers boxset to your closest store for free where you can go and collect it for £19.99. The Indiana Jones boxset is also £19.99 on DVD.

    No DTS on R2

    This set gets a re-release around June, no idea what's going to change though so maybe it's worth holding out for that if you're forced to pay £40 plus.

    maybe they will put DTS on it this time. Although it has to be said the 5.1 track is so good you really don't need it.

    They tell you that cause they're the online side of the business, if you get them to pinpoint stock to transfer to your store then they can check that its £19.99 instore (for reward card holders).

    Unless all £20 stock has gone already.

    I just said I was after Band of Brothers and asked how much it was, the woman said it was £19.99 so I asked her to send one to my local store. After a short time on hold while she searched other stores she said one was available and would be sent down.I didn't say anything special really she told me it was £19.99, I will let you know when I pick it up if they honour the price.

    An absolute bargain! I've just sold my R4 crap edition for £40 on eBay, now I've got the tin on it's way to the Blackpool store for £19.99!

    Absolutely superb!

    I just said:

    "I'm calling regarding the Band Of Brothers Tin Edition. I believe you have copies of this for £19.99, and I was wondering if I could get hold of one?"

    Ask to speak to "Ross". He was a great guy - very friendly and knowledgable about the products on offer. He spent about 10 minutes on my query alone.

    I called this afternoon - spoke with customer services - and a guy said that they had sold out all of their copies of BoB - basically they were clearing stock. So as I do with SKY, I called Game CS up again about an hour later, this time a lovely lady said that she would take a look around and see if there was a copy in any of the stores. She called me back a couple of hours later, saying that she had gotten hold of a copy and would have it posted to my local branch of GAME - sorted - hopefully. Just wait for it to come in now and someone from the local store to give me a call........

    Came home from work at 7pm to find a message on my answerphone from GAME.

    The bad boy has arrived! I'm going to go and collect it on Monday. I'll post any positive/negative experiences.

    :clap:
