Have to admit I'd have liked one at that price but as I wasn't quick enough I will just keep bashing away on my original Xbox one.

Funny you should mention that number as I just rang up my local John Lewis. Apparently it was in store as well and a few people cleaned them out, one taking 6.

Why do more shops not put systems in place to limit it to 1 or 2 per customer. You don't have to be Einstein to figure out what that person is now going to do (eBay). You walk into Sainsbury's right now and try and buy 7 bottles of water or a crate load of nappies and they'll tell you to put them back.

It is stupid that you should be able to buy multiples of things like that at any point, let alone when they're discounted.

I wonder what the lawful basis for stopping a customer buying something is? Any lawyers on the forum?

Shops and stuff have the right to refusal to anyone and anything. Why wouldnt they?

Most of the supermarkets have a 'we're not a wholesalers, strawberry float off' buried on their websites.

The only reason I can think of that they're suddenly offloading it at that price on a random Thursday (outside of a major price cock up) is because Microsoft have a big price cut on the way next month along with new bundles.

The PS4 Pro is also completely gone at Amazon, Tesco (black), John Lewis and GAME (black), which seems to indicate something is happening there too.

Maybe they're just cutting their losses on it and selling at cost to free up shelf space/warehousing.

So I got a Brazilian xbox live code for £26 and installed a VPN. Switched to Brazil and Xbox.com is now in Portuguese. So far so good. I had 2 codes and they both been "redeemed before". Anyone else has this problem before ? Do I get paypal to refund me? the support staff keeps sending me emails trying to fix it but either they been given a lot of dodgy batches or i am doing it wrong ? Do I need to make my xbox account Brazil too?

Someone called the customer service and they said that they got the 2 and the 4 the wrong way around, or something like that. It wasnt a genuine clearance.

Already own it in PC but for less than 6 squid it would be rude not to nab it for my X even if it isn't enhanced.
