That really is shit, surely it's doing them more in lost business because people can't get into their site than it is getting them sales by selling crap cheaply in gimmick sales.

They can't be making much profit from it anyway as they're not selling enough units. Selling 30 DS's at half price can't be making them hardly anything.

Folkes, the Cube is dead to Game afterall. So dead infact that they still have GC games for 37.99+. How do they expect to sell them?

Yeah, was crap. The site couldn't handle it. They won't make a great deal but I bet they've got a load of people to sign up on their site and give them their credit card details.

Especially as they advised everyone to register before the bought! To save time! Argh I didnt think i could hate Game any more than I already did! Bet that eveilblode woman in the Norwich store had something to do with it. So so pretty but clearly the anti-christ!

Well, I got both of them anyway. The COD one is quite the looker.

I think i'm taking a leaf out of your book Tach, I don't even want the Football Manager one, something just compelled me to do it.

They are also doing a couple of other faceplates free with games, namely the Ghost Recon one free with, you guessed it, Ghost Recon 3 AW!

Buggering, bollocking shitflaps! I'm a little angry right now...

What a total waste of 5 that was. I just recieved those two 2 faceplates from Gameplay. They looked pretty cool in the pictures, but now i've actually received them, I can see why they were only 2!

Ah well, I might smash them up and send them back as faulty.

Oh well, not got mine yet, but rather than destroy them, stick em on ebay, the COD2 one usually sells for a tenner. Paint the other one to something of your own design.
