Ah, it's Nintendo's fault for providing fewer Switches than expected. Despite the fact that the Switch is selling considerably more than expected, and that's why they are having stock issues. Gotcha.

 

Those £50 Mini SNES deposits both looking not especially secure, and understandable that GAME would ask so much now.

Spend your gift cards Nooooow!

They have been mismanaged for a decade now when they decided to focus on casual audience of the Wii era without thinking it would be a short fad. Shame, because it used to be good there and I worked there until 2011 and had enough.

I saw that yesterday and I thought it's either Game being nice(lol) and trying to stop scalpers or they need a serious cash injection... Definitely the latter, as they're also trying to fleece people with this premium reward card at £40.

As long as cider isnt involved were golden.

Edit: that should say we are, but this site still doesnt like apostrophes.

You're sure this place doesn't like apostrophes?

Ginj, I reckon some time around Easter.

Shufts, it definitely doesnt show apostrophes when I post, and its only here that it happens. I think someone else said it might be iOS, but then it is only on here. Weird.
