    OMG

    Mine's been SHIPPED!!!!!!!!

    This is surely good news ! - Order was placed on the 18th Feb - so that helps with the timeframe of other pre-orders.

    Also noted that they've sent it "XPress Post" rather than "Standard" (I still didn't pay anything for shipping) - Is this the first PSP shipped for £105 ???

    Absolutely - it feels like we've been "on strike" for ages! Isn't there a feel good factor knowing that we've finally "won" :)

    Ok just for you :) Man it must have really of pi**ed them off to let them go at that price. I wonder how many they ended up having to honour.

    OK now who will actually end up getting one for £105 (ie avoid the customs) come on you know some lucky devils will get away with it :)

    I have decided if the my second one comes through without customs I will keep it.

    Maybe mounted as a trophy? A win for the little guy for once :)

    I'm more surprised that they are sending it via courier (I believe it's Purlator there - Parcel Force over here deliver) at no extra cost.

    Maybe they've lost enough on the discount, they REALLY don't want to lose more ?

    My gf was in LA today trying to buy a PSP for me as well. No need to do that now!

    No doubt I will also get a bill from customs...

    They've actually sent me my copy of Wipeout today as well - Maybe DVD Soon's annual stock shipment has come in!

    Yep, my PSP has shipped also. I ordered mine on 18th Feb. I was just looking at my emails and assumed it was the Predator dvd I'd been waiting for. Was shocked to find when I opened it to be my PSP having shipped. If I'm feeling generous I may give it to my brother who's back from Uni in a month. On the other hand I may ordered RR and put it up for sale for £200.

    How do you use the tracking number with the order by the way. Tried it with the Canadian postal service site but it didn't work!? :confused:

    We don't REALLY know if all the "grief" we've given them helped or not - if we hadn't, maybe we still would be complaining.

    Either way - we finally got them for the £105 we paid.

    Dont think that. No doubt about it they were trying to pull a fast one. Think about all the people who have canceled and had to pay over the top because of their delaying tactics and false information they were putting out.

    They waited as long as they could before shipping, I am in no doubt this stock has been available all along. As Sadmuppet has said no doubt the amount of grief they have received over this has contributed to them now keeping their side of the bargain. THey have saved a little face by honouring this but in my opinion their reputation has still been severley tarnished.

    It might just be me I don't know, but I just ordered Yoshi touch and go for NDS from dvd soon (i've forgiven them and feel guilty for the nasty emails i've sent) and found $25 store credit on my account! :eek:

    It must have been their way of saying sorry, so used that and the discount voucher and got the game for $12 canadian! :thumbsup:

    Anyone else got store credit on their account?

    maybe they only dispatched to those that have made a fuss?

    I sent a letter to the CEO of dvd soon, it seems to have worked.

    Mine's still on order too :mad:

    Those whose PSPs have shipped, when did you place your orders? Just so I can make sure orders placed after mine haven't been dispatched before etc...

    February 18th, and I very much doubt that they only sent the items after we made a fuss. I hadn't put my complaint in yet, and the chances are that they are just working through the list.

    I don;t think this is it, as it went via the X-press service, which I think is contracted out.

    I asked the Royal Mail about the tracking number - not one they use. Apparently *they say* there's another number that they can track it with, obviously one we don't have. So it's a case of waiting - however I would imagine it may arrive tomorrow or Monday - customs pending.

    Fingers x'd - First person to receive one, please post and let us all know ? ?

    I'm expecting it on Monday as well, although I did cntemplate it coming today, or even tomorrow. It is a courier service after all and should in theory take less time than the usual 4-5 days.

    I'm certain it did. They were obviously desperate for people to cancel the pre-orders. If it's true that they were forced to sell with a game (which Sony have denied), then they only had to ask for the additional cost of the game which most of us would have been prepared to pay.

    I believe we owe a major debt of gratitude to sadmuppet for helping to co-ordinate the response via Canadian 'Trading Standards' :clap: :clap: :clap:

    I see there has been over 20,500 hits on the original thread, thats real consumer power, and a lot of people who now have the measure of DVD Soon.
