  1. Is this some Currys/Dixons style extended warranty or the MS one? because if you mean the MS one you'll be without a console for around a month if your 360 goes tits up.
  2. Doubt they'd give you a refund, they certainly don't have to legally. Here's a point, MS have basically admitted that all the backlog of unsold 360s sitting there in stockrooms up and down the country have this design flaw. Isn't it against the law to knowingly sell faulty goods, I'm surprised they haven't been forced to do a full recall on those.
  3. Yeah the woman from Trading Standards said that I shouldn't bother with the actual store and that all correpondence should now go to their head office via recorded delivery. I think you're probably right about being strung out, what I'll proabbly do is ring MS in a minute and also write a letter of complaint to Argos head office about this.
  4. I know GAME get a lot of stick on here, but I will say that I've always found them superb when it comes to things like replacements. Here's a bit more (detail, what I posted over at the DVD Forums). Well just been down Argos to return the 360 (bear in mind that it's only two months old) and their response was that it was nothing to do with them and I had to contact MS direct to arrange my own repair. From reading a poster in the previous threads unfortunate experience with Argos I went forearmed with the relevant part of the Sales of Goods Act (Section 14) and the response from the store manager "Our company policy supercedes that" (no I'm not joking). Just to be sure I rang Trading Standards when I got back home and they told me that Argos was 100% in the wrong on this, although not automatically entitled to a replacement it is the retailers responsibility to arrange any repairs within the 6 months of purchase and I was advised to write to their Head Office. Now I'm not sure if it's worth it as on one hand it would probably be quicker for me to arrange my own repair than Argos if they dig their heels in and go for the repair rather than replacement route, but on the other I don't particularly like letting companies get away with cowboy antics like this.
  5. Looks like I'm going to have a similar experience to Deeptone, only with Argos. Took in my two month old 360 which had red lighted and was told that it was up to me to contact MS to arrange a repair and Argos had nothing to do with it anymore.

    PS3 Price Drop

    What struck me was the bloke doing the feature seemed mind-boggled by the £425rrp and kept saying variations of 'It's a hugely expensive product'.
  7. Says the bloke who resembled Fraser from Dad's Army during the first two presentations only to spring up like Zebedee during the last one to shout "Everything's coming up Sony!"
  8. That PSP redesign is pretty much the most pointless thing ever. More pointless than Paul Ross even.
  9. Looked liked timed exclusives he was very careful to say things like "Exclusive this year/hilday season"
  10. Oh God you just know he's probably going to redirect his column to this now his Second Life book is done. Whoooo 400 words about disabled people buying a virtual chair agogo.
  11. Reggie always looks like some creepy molester who managed to sneak past security and get up on stage.
  12. It's like your Uncle dancing at a wedding distilled into conference form.
  13. Ooh good another back-slapping montage video, hadn't had one of those for nearly three minutes there.
  14. I hope they have a Q&A. "Hey Reggie, why did you stop Manhunt 2 from releasing but let that paedo witch touching game sail through."
  15. Trying to convince that their online service is alreeady top-notch?
  16. Christ, at this rate Sony could win best conference even if it just consisted of Phil and Kaz playing soggy biscuit with a MGS4 Blu-Ray while Final Fantasy music runs in the background.
  17. Less stats please, it's starting to resemble a Sony conference with less made up info.
  18. The guy from Penny Aracade put it well (I'm trying to find the article) in that its like MS set themselves up the goal of getting to market first and hitting 10 million and now they've done that they're kind of milling about cluelessly not sure what they're up to.
  19. The GTAIV on 360 came as quite a shock to most people last year as I recall.
  20. Compare and contrast. E3 2006 E3 2007
  21. I can't see them doing it, it would come off like a desperation move and would be all bu admitting that they have no faith in the PS3 internally.
  22. I'll say this for Sony, they stick by their franchises no matter how duff they might be. We've had, what, three Getaway titles so far, each one abysmal.
  23. Supposedly the single-player is a whole different kettle of fish graphically to the multiplayer. Could be true, could be MS spouting marketing shite. We'll know one way or the other in a few hours.
