My original one the D-Pad is starting to get a bit funny, and the one I got with my X had a drink spilled on it so the Y and Menu buttons are knackered. They press down, but then take about 10 seconds to come back up.


ShopTo has them for just under £37. Currys have them for just under £40. No idea if there's cheaper offers out there.

Ooof, was hoping somewhere might've had them closer to £30.
Can't believe they're so expensive given that they don't even come with the play and charge kit. Do they at least come with an adapter for use with Windows for that much?

Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.

For cabled yeah. At those prices I'd expect a wireless dongle.

Tried to order one from ShopTo as they were selling the Blue Controller for £39.85 that everyone else seems to be selling for about £50-60 and I fancied something different from the black controllers I currently have.

Can't have it sent where I want because their website is utterly awful now. It won't let me change my delivery address, just says "You can't change your address at this time" with no explanation. There's a little bit about your first two orders having to go to your billing address, but I've got loads of orders with them on my account so it isn't that. It just won't let me change the delivery address to get it sent to my parents house like I want.

The site is just so bad that if you hadn't used them before or knew they were ok from people who've used them recently you'd be forgiven for thinking it was some cheap half arsed scam site.


Edit - Ended up ordering it from the ShopTo eBay outlet, which is infinitely easier to navigate and order from than their actual website, and let me pick the delivery address I wanted.
Only problem was that the payment defaulted to Paypal, so I changed that to my Credit Card, but after I changed the delivery address the payment reverted back to Paypal again and I only noticed after clicking the order button.
The Paypal details will still work, I just wanted to use my Credit Card as that gets cashback.

I've never done it, but I was under the impression you could connect via Bluetooth.

I''m after a couple of things. One a good supplier for a refurb'd Wii U Pro Controller but has to be on Amazon as I have credit there.

And also a standard PS4 (or the newer/slimmer one), as my gf wants to spend some xmas money. No need for a pro and not interested in loads of bundled games just a good price on the console. Any ideas?

Meanwhile my daughters have shown zero interest in it! I'll need to get them to play it today. They're such creatures of habit. I got Super Smash Bros Ultimate for Christmas, and they're not interested in trying it - just want to play Mario Kart (which we've had for years)!

Why is horizon zero dawn complete always so cheap on cd keys for a US version but never UK. Well annoying, I don't want to have two accounts. I've got plenty of games to play at the moment anyway, but I would like to get it at some point.

You can create an account then when its downloaded just play it through your proper account can't you? Pretty sure you can.

Most of my American downloaded games will only let me play them while using my American account.

I bought these just the other day and now they are even lower which is crazy for 1st and 2nd party Nintendo games.

Zebra Triforce heroes 3ds by Nintendo £6.82 https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07 ... UTF8&psc=1

Code name STEAM 3ds by intelligent systems (advance wars, fire emblem etc) £3.02 https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07 ... UTF8&psc=1

Can highly recommend Code Name Steam, it's a great Tactical game.

I thought I'd play Zelda before the servers die off, the demo was pretty good. So if anyone does want to play it much like four swords before that got insanely rare now is the time. I think it does have some sort of offline mode too.

Code name steam would probably have done better if they kept the Japanese name which was Lincoln Vs Aliens :lol:

Zebra :slol:

I was eyeing up these two, especially Triforce heroes, but I don't know anyone who has a 3ds to play it with (even online), and I gather the offline mode is bobbins. Shame really, as I imagine it's pretty good fun with friends.

It pairs you with strangers and it was quite fast when I was playing the demo. I managed to complete the demo without much hassle. I'll let you know how I get on.

Code Name Steam has dropped even further, now only £2.94. Nuts price. How can I not buy that?!
