    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?

    #Jaunty music

    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

    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.

    Can't remember the exact date, but i know it was the first day they were taking pre-orders. My mate works there and checked on the system and we were the first two to pre-order it from that store :)

    Ah okay. Judging by the other Argos thread, it doesn't look like they've been allocated on a first come, first serve basis anyway.

    Well technically speaking it is, as for every pre-order made, a console is allocated to them, so therefore everyone who got a successful pre-order, should recieve one on launch day. However, if there are problems with shortage of systems, i can almost guarantee you, they wll be sent based on who pre-ordered them first, make sense?

    Hi all, found this on another site i visit.



    ARGOS UPDATE

    They were expecting 22,000 units on Friday and will receive only 18,000.

    They blamed Nintendo strongly by name. They say other retailers will be affected too.

    Allocation is according to location not date of order.

    5 distribution depots are affected: Swindon, Notts, Preston, Warrington and one other.

    They are expecting all orders to be fulfilled in the next two weeks - but could not 'guarantee' they'd all be fulfilled before Christmas.
