    Hi all,

    Thought this deserved a post here for those who would like to preorder a game to go with there Xbox360 when it arrives.

    Perfect Dark Zero for £33.99 delivered, Well spotted by Indiana Jones :clap:

    Looks like it's in the wrong category and hence the low price (it's there as an xbox game although it isn't being released on normal xbox). Could be a risk of order cancelation when PowerPlay spot their mistake but worth ordering and hoping they'll honour it IMO. I have mine ordered already :D

    I've already got a pre-order placed with amazon for £32.99, but don't know whether they'll honour it. Maybe, it's worth pre-ordering again…

    Thanks for the heads up and I went ahead and ordered this.

    I've now received an email from them cancelling my order as "not available from the distributor".

    It was worth a try though :smashin:

    Oooh, good spot, problem now is deciding what to order from that list :eek: , think I'm gonna take a look in some magazines today and order later, bit of WHSmith library reading in order ;)

    Will probably go for an extra wireless controller as well, works out at £28.02 delivered, not bad atall :D

    So what's everyone ordering, might help my decision making. Thinking maybe COD2, Dead Rising, Perfect Dark & maybe even Saints Row.

    Think I'll make a big order as I don't fancy paying £39.99 for the games :nono:

    I decided to go for Call of Duty 2, Full Auto, Saint's Row & an additional Wireless Controller.

    Probably didn't those the best showcase games there with the latter two but they look like fun :D

    If you put xbox 360 in the search "all products", you'll see Gears of War is the bottom one on the list :thumbsup:

    Has anyone else noticed that all mention of the 360 has been removed from the Asda website?

    I sent them an emailing afew hours ago asking why this was and if it would effect my pre-orders and they just got back to me saying I should cotact ASDA Entertainment on 0845 3666977.

    Guess its one way to get our of honoring console and game pre-orders, just dont stock the stuff lol

    Hmm, a bit worrying that one, well if they don't honour it that'll be the last time I use Asda, that's for certain :suicide:

    My orders still show as processing and I can still find xbox 360 peripherals and games on the ASDA website, but not the console.

    Ah, forgot about their sites useless search function, typed in the name of the games and just '360' and it found nothing but typing 'xbox 360' finds all the games.

    I had problems too...their search function is rubbish...however, if you ensure the dropdown is set to 'All Products' and then type the name of the title, it would find what I was looking for. Typing 'xbox 360' brings up everything. Virtually all the titles have been increased from £39.99 to £44.97 now...just hope they honour all those 15% off pre-orders......

    Well they honored my order for Far Cry Instincts which I used the 15% discount voucher to get and I pre-ordered GTA for the PSP using the voucher and it is released next week so hopefully if they honor that too it will be a good sign for the 360 games.

    How much did you end up paying for Titanic?

    I ask because using the Sainsburys voucher you can get the 4 Disc Edition for £14.99 :thumbsup:

    I got the 2 disk for £10.20. Very tempted to get the 4-disk at that price!
