    Bad News Argos Pre-Orderers!

    I called the number I found here http://www.argos-email.co.uk/preregister/wii/ to make sure it would be delivered and they said that due to a problem with suppliers it won't be delivered at launch but more vaguely - BEFORE CHRISTMAS - no exact date!


    WTF?

    Chris: Hello?

    Moi: Yeah

    Chris: Have you heard anything back from us?

    Moi: No

    Chris: Then you should recieve the console on Friday morning as there have been no problems.

    Moi: But I was told it wouldn't be delivered then.

    Chris: It definately will be delivered to all Pre-Orders on the 8th of December.

    Moi: Should I not have recieved a call to arrange delivery?

    Chris: A few calls are yet to be made as the office closes at 10 so you will maybe get your tommorow.

    Moi: Okay thanks alot. Good Luck!

    Chris: Bye

    If I call them with my order number, do you think they'll tell me anything as concrete? Lol.

    Im reading posts om other sites of people getting mixed messages.

    Some say it won't be delivered on the 8th
    Others say it will
    Everyone else is just as confused as me!


    Read that if you didn't get a call you won't get it but I was told instore i would and have payed the full amount!



    Launch shambles? I think so!

    To be honest, I have always been very skeptical that I'd get it at launch, because it seemed a bit too good to be true.
