I tried Cardiff, Gloucester and 2 branches in Bristol but again - no luck.
Out of all 4 - only one would actually check against the stock code number
I think they felt that their authority was being threatened and insisted they did not need it.


Typical phone call....


Me> "hello. I would like to know if you have the HD-DVD add on drive for the Xbox360 in stock. I have the stock code number here which might help" (or something similar - tried various approaches)
Retail Assistant>
"Its alright sir...I know the item that you mean. Just give me a moment to check."
... (me waits patiently. Already been on the phone for about 10 mins waiting for customer services to transfer me through to Multimedia)
......
Retail Numpty again>
"Right..here we are..xbox 360 HD VGA cable wasn't it Sir?"

Aaarghhh!!!!

I dont know if anyone out there gets any perverse sense of satisfaction from trying to track down one of these things but I certainly don't.
Think i'll try give up and wait till New Year

Half the problem is most of the staff don't have a clue what you are talking about.

Finding the drive is one thing but it's made further difficult depending on who you talk to and how switched on they are.

Tried the same approach with Toys R Us Cardiff.

Also the following stores in Cardiff Area:

PC World
Currys
Comet

Guess what, pretty much the same idiotic shop staff reaction in all stores. Not angry just frustrated, you'd think after a week or two's queries shop staff would start to get clued up even just a little bit on this product, no still the idiotic reply's from all concerned, I give up, here's to the New Year!!

Nematon look's like if you live in South Wales it's just not worth the effort! :rolleyes:
