Xenoblade Chronicles + Wii Classic Controller Pro £15 Argos

Post by GigaPepsiMan » Thu Mar 13, 2014 4:35 pm

I had to give this it's own thread because it is a bit of a big deal.
So Argos are selling the Xenoblade Chronicles classic controller bundle for £15, if you can get one reserved at your local Argos I suggest you do not pass this deal up, before this story broke out Xenoblade was already becoming a fairly expensive game.

People are having problems getting the items reserved on the Argos website so if you are one of the lucky ones you can come in here and brag.

If you are getting a blank box just keep refreshing. I did and managed to reserve a copy.

Was going to try and get some for people on here but after about twenty minutes of trying I was happy just to get myself a copy.

Couldn't get it to work sadly. The site didn't seem to want to load the stock checker thing and when I checked on the mobile version there was apparently stock but every time I tried to reserve it there was an error right at the end stage. Now there is nothing at all, I reckon there was actually no stock but it hadn't updated until just now.

Lucky for you guys that got a copy been wanting one for ages. Hopefully it all goes through okay, I'd say don't get your hopes up even if you have a reservation confirmation. I did something similar when PC world were selling Pokemon Black 2 for like £5 managed to reserve a copy got all the emails and everything but when I actually went to pick it up next day there was nothing.

None in stock where I am. Usually the case with Argos hot bargains, so soon as they're found, gone. However...
