      Why would Game all of a sudden have them next week,retailers have this sort of thing in weeks before release and its just plain bad marketing by Sony telling everybody that they launch a Gold Wireless Headset on the 10th and not a single retailer in the UK has stock, shopto.net have not even ordered them as they are unable to do so because i emailed them and asked?

      Company's have to order this stuff in advance and i really don't think we will be seeing these on the 10th of Feb in the UK,if we do then i will be mighty surprised

      There a Canadian site guys, well known on the forums. I've used them many times with no problems and never been hit for customs.

      You can pay by card or Paypal and as has already been said you can change the currency to UK pounds on the right on the homepage.

      I'm not worried about receiving them, as I said I've used the site many many times with no issues at all.

      Delivery time is usually about a week but I'm not worried about that either, if it takes a few weeks, I don't mind for the price.

      Seems like it's half decent,I shall wait to see what happens next week in the UK or any new announcements over the coming weekend.

      But based on your reports they may sound like a place I would buy this product from if we have to wait a few months to many in the UK.

      Thanks for the info though

      No worries, you can never say never when ordering from any company over the internet but from my own personal experience, so far they have never let me down.

      Hi, i ordered from videogamesplus earlier, i have known about them for a while but hadnt bought anything till now, and price for the headset is excellent. However i seem to have a slight error with the order, i paid with paypal and have received the payment receipt email from paypal but when I clicked to go back to website there is no order in my history. I sent them an email to check it went through ok. £65 not bad at all for these.

      Do you have to pay import duty when they get delivered from VG+?

      I can not find the new Sony Wireless headset on the VGP site either just similar looking older models without the blue inner band,sure you are getting what you asked for considering retail price is £79.99,hard to believe a retailer on foreign shores is selling them for about £15 less.

      Yes it was definitely the right one as I had a look yesterday. They have been taken down now.. maybe they got a lot of orders from abroad and decided it'd make them more money by just offering them through amazon for an inflated price? Hopefully they'll honour orders placed through their website at the cheaper price.

      I caved & bought a set last night from them, definatly shows up on both my order page & paypal bill as "Sony PlayStation Gold Wireless Headset - PS4 (In stock usually ships within 24hrs) (Limit 1 Per Customer) "
      As to if they cancel I'm not sure they can, there showing them as still having stock through Amazon so they might be stuck having to honour previous orders. They've tecnically took my money from Paypal for the order so I think its binding, in saying that if they cancel hey-ho, I'll make a bit of a fuss through Paypal in principal, get my money back & move on :)

      Edit: just took a look on the site & there still listed Welcome to Video Games Plus Online

      Well spotted. I think their website is having issues (or it's my IE!) as I couldn't even click on 'accessories' and the search for it returned nothing earlier. My order is still Pending.. so we shall see!

      Just had an Order update to "processing"

      Looks like we might be allright guys. :thumbsup:

      Hate buying blind without a review but I'm hoping these are just the Pulse drivers without the god awful "Basseffect" rumble motors.

      Good price from VGP, but I'll be waiting for Amazon to stock as we know nothing about the quality of these new headphones, and Sony's previous Pulse Elites had a major flaw with stress fractures. At least I can return them then if the new ones do exhibit any faults.

      Same here.

      I'm not too bothered about the sound quality as I've not got the best hearing, but I like the fact it's wireless, has built in mic and looks nice. I'm hoping the wireless is up to scratch and there is no hiss/crackling etc.
