    think you best get ringing up boys and girls.

    just spoke to some woman on the phone and she said they are sold out, i explained that r ang up imediately after placing the order to check if they were in stock or whetehr i would need a security check and th ebloke said no everything is fine.. she said its showing nothing up about that on their system.

    i asked her what sort of customer service you call that? she said well it must have gone to out of stock while i was ordering it, it does happen.

    i said i wont ever be buying from you again and hung up on the b**ch.

    disgusting service. if its out of stock then why havent they contacted me about my order?!

    This is a common well known situation with play.com and some other internet sites when they get popular stock in that they have pre-orders on.

    When they receive stock of the items they have to book it in on their stock system and it will say in stock, and allow people to order. However this stock will be allocated to people who have pre-orders (as it's only fair to do so), and will quickly become out of stock. Those that order will just be placed at the end of the pre-order queue.

    It is an awful stock system, but it is quite well known on these forums that this happens.

    I wouldn't suggest ordering any video games hardware from play.com that it going to be of high demand and low supply.

    Yes, since she clearly designed the site, runs it, wrote the software and organises the stock, it's clearly that "b**ch"es fault.

    Grow. Up.

    All of the XBox 360 HD-DVD drives should come with the KK disc as it is sealed up in the box as part of the whole package. If it's not there then either Microsoft have stopped doing it with later releases (I doubt it) or someone is nabbing the movie and repackaging the drive (more likely)

    I got mine from Dixons. There was no mention of the KK disc on the website but sure enough it was there inside the sealed box which has a sticker on it saying "King Kong HD DVD movie inside"

    The King Kong disc was only ever a limited time offer, just like the miniature remote that came with the 360.

    My drive turned up today from Play.com UK and there was no mention of any offers on their website.

    The HD DVDs I have ordered are still on their way so I was very happy to see that King Kong was included so I had somthing to try :)
