Anyone else having issues finding a Circle Pad Pro XL in the UK?

#1Rotcod_WhatPosted 3/28/2013 5:19:06 AM
It was supposed to have been released on the 22nd, but everywhere I look there are different issues preventing me from ordering one.

Was told Zavvi have them, as some have pr-ordered from there, but on their site they only have the original size version.

Tried Play dot com (aka Rakuten) they have it, but for 25 (it should be 15).

Tried ebay, who have loads, but they are all from vendors in Hong Kong and I'm not touching them with a ten foot pole, as you play counterfeit-roulette with HK whenever you order anything.

Finally tried Shopto, which has a listing to back-order them but they won't accept my Visa details. Have opened a support ticket with them, but I understand they can be unreliable with resolving issues.

I'd try Amazon, but I'm boycotting them right now.

Anyone else had these issues and if so, did you manage to find one for a decent price anywhere?

stupid c***s

That sucks. Also, if you don't obscure everything but the first letter and qualifying suffix (like "ing" or adding an "s" to pluralize it) of any "banned" words you can get your message moderated for censor bypassing. Just a friendly warning though, I wont mark you.

I caved and ordered one from Amazon.

Shopto STILL won't accept my card details, despite getting back to me that it was a glitch on their end, and to keep trying.

Nope, I ordered mine off Shopto a week prior to MH3U was released and they dispatched it earlier than the release date.
