    All gone by the looks of it. No doubt bought by the scalpers for Ebay.

    It's not like Xenoblade Chronicles X has been a raging commercial success - if it was, would it be getting such a price-cut?

    Do scalpers really think that people are going to pay x2-x3+ RRP for it on eBay?

    Sometimes, elements of modern gaming like this sicken me.

    More than likely just another Argos traffic driver, they've done it with a few things this week, in stock at a handful of places and that's it.

    Having said that maybe gunrock was also correct

    **** sclapers, there were 19 in stock locally to me and then there were none available once I have a break at work to order. I called the manager to ask for a backorder and he said it's unlikely. Very interesting, he said someone bought 10 copies and another person bought 9... Is it really worth screwing over legitimate customers over a few untaxed quid and complicating everything?

    It can still be abused though. One order per customer would suffice better, no?

    Yeah or at least a maximum of three if it's a sale item.

    Part of me thinks let the scalpers have all the hassle for making what, a fiver a go after the fees/postage etc?
