    I placed my order tuesday at around midday and it went to "order processing" Wednesday. Just come off the phone from them and it's going to be with me next week "Maybe even Monday or Tuesday...." I asked the reason for this and was told "We've just come back off the new year and everything y'know... And we have lots of new stock"

    I mean wtf!?! If you have so much stock then offload it to the people you've ALREADY taken the money from.

    They probably mean that they've got a load of orders to process that were placed during the holidays as well as a lot of new stock that needs to be booked in and sorted before any of it can be sent out.

    That doesn't make you feel any better though, and if I were you then I would be annoyed as well.

    I remember that post someone said they'd got through and their wii play was "on its way" that made me feel better when I read it cos I couldn't get through after 20 mins on hold and decided to order anyway.

    Point taken on the orders placed over the festive period but surely if they had stock to cover orders then it's just a pick, pack and wrap job and can be done fairly quickly (I work in engineering and we deliver masses of items a day and the picking/packing and wrapping part doesn't take that long imo)

    I agree it should have been a pick/pack/wrap job and I'm certainly not making excuses for them. It could well be down to how they prioritise things. I'd say getting paid for orders out the door should be priority.

    i ordered mine on tuesday night still in processing. it does take long to put something in a jiffy bag and send it. and if they had lots of stock in just work harder. thats what i have to do. if i can get loads of pcs installed with windows 2000 and get them out the door and in the shop front of where i work in a few days i am sure they can put a game and remote in a bag label it and post it. lazy f****rs.

    just got off the phone form these fools saying i should have had it by now. but the order is in the warehouse. and they still have lots of orders over from over christmas. and i should get it for Friday or monday, which to me sounds like i wont. i would cancel the fecker if i could get it somewhere else.

    I wont be buying off them ever again. they suck big time.

    ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

    i am so glad my son is not moaning about when its coming.

    On Hold again now, if they tell me next week I'm cancelling. 1-2 days on website should NEVER equal 2 weeks. False advertising....

    I was assured I'd get it before the end of the week. They said something about the order being on hold on their system for what appears to be no reason.

    Sounds same story as you weapon.

    I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and fingers crossed for weekend 2 wiimote action.... Oh and I think a game's included as well :rotfl:

    got through at last. and was told my card has been billed so it should be with me early next week.

    they also said items have been taking 7 days ( mine being 9 days today so will be longer if i get it next week)

    bloke sounded a right geek. i so wanna punch something. feckers.


    My rant will not be over till i get it....lol

    I ordered one from these characters today, and reading this thread, it was probably a mistake. I did eamil them this afternoon for a despatch date, but I'm not hopeful of a reply now.
    If they mess me about like some of you guys, then its the last time I deal with them.

    Well, it wasn't a mistake at all. They emailed yesterday and told me it had been despatched and it arrived safe and sound today. No complaints really, certainly better than I was expecting before. I know others have had troubles, but just saying how my order went.:)
