I wonder. Do the people that slate Funstock, also slate the major publishers that release massively broken games to the public like Drive Club, next gen Assassins Creed and Halo MCC?

I would rather buy from a Funstock than some random on ebay. At least I know I am getting a later version with the C E logo, etc

Do those companies send people to sign up to forums representing themselves as some inependent but newly recruited agent, to 'sort out' problems then fail to deliver still?

The whole Blaze thing was a little too personal, just too close to home. It wasn't some faceless big company, it was a guy, right here, pretty much apologising because they were caught out, not because it actually resolved anything. I don't want to deal with a company that treats customers like that. I'd rather deal with an anonymous corporate than that, or take my chances with someone else, maybe find out there's someone I can trust.

Yes, but they're discrete about it. They don't rub your nose in it.

And I don't think that even covers deleting negative comments on fb, the getting busted doing fake amazon reviews...it does cover threatening to ban their customer from their forum for daring to ask questions though :lol:

Say if you had a bunch of ROMs on a memory card could you just plug in said card and they will work?

Not that I have such a thing, purely for research I ask.

Not yet. I've heard rumblings that people are working on it, but from what I've seen so far there's nothing as simple as that yet.

Do you get anything else extra with the "bundle" or is it just 1p more expensive than buying the console and an extra controller separate?
