Thinking of getting lego batman 3 on ps4 - 30 isn't bad. Anyone know roughly how long it lasts though? Will buy if it's as long as the hobbit (35-40 hours to plat)

Yeah, should be able to get 30-40 hours out of it if you want to 100% it Turniplord, I gave up around 50% and spent close to 30 hours on it. Have found Black Friday sales quite lacking on lots of retailers, just come from Zavvi and I can't tell much of a difference from their regular prices. Anyways, screw Black Friday, it's Smash Bros Day, very nearly wasn't getting it today, but I badgered Amazon last night about my order with the GC adaptor and they eventually told me it was getting delayed for 3 weeks, luckily it was in time to reorder without the adapter with next day delivery so I get it today, I'll just have to manage without the adaptor for now

Wow amazon really flopped there with the adapter 3 weeks not many people will like that. But at least you'll get smash bros today so you will still have your fun. So what amibo's did you get gloria still all or did you shorten your list?
Dead's avatar
Dead 2 years ago
Yeah, wasn't even that bothered about the adaptor anyway and only changed my order to add it last weekend. Amiibo's I'm getting today are DK, Peach, Yoshi, Samus and Fox, and I have Captain Falcon and Diddy Kong ordered from Phase 2, plus a few in mind for Phase 3 and 4. These Amiibo's are going to get expensive for me.

In terms of gaming I think Black Friday over here is aload of bollocks because it's nothing I won't be able to pick up cheaper after Christmas.

Yeah Black Friday seems a little lacklustre this year not really seen any bargains on games some console deals have been good though. Least your website is working as a lot of others I am trying are not even working!

I had the Smash Bros and the Adapter ordered with Amazon too in case payments failed with ShopTO, order got cancelled and item went out of stock, and despite cancelling order with Amazon, I got an email from them saying I would get it by 2nd Dec. CS do not know what they are doing half the time, and 3 weeks was probably the worst case. I also got a Amazon gift certificate too :) At least knowing other retailers did a worse job than ShopTo :) Also ShopTO is £2 cheaper to on gold :)

ShopTo sales are probably lacklustre as they do not have the staff to keep updating the sales on an hourly basis. The sales are only crazy elsewhere as they are only for an hour.

I've done all my Christmas shopping today but little from Black Friday deals. For most people I had in mind what I wanted to get them and only held back to order today because a) I get paid today and b) there is always a chance they'd drop in price. Very little did but I've wrapped up Christmas for twelve (and two birthdays) for sub £200. Just going to keep my eye out for anything else that I think may be a nice late addition for people over the next few weeks (and on Cyber Monday). As for ShopTo's deals, sorry to say I agree with most people here that they're lacking. However, the fact you're one of the cheapest sites to begin with (and are still competitive to some deals) is a huge feather in your cap anyway.

Where is my copy of smash brothers shopto??? the amount of hassle its been and lies you have told me over the last 3 days has been shocking take wednesday for example you raise 2 tickets on my account saying the gamecube adaptor is not gonna be in stock on time for release fair enough i can live without that on release day, then saying smash and gamecube pad bundle isnt gonna be either so i phone customer support (gold number doesnt work) and change my order (already paid for btw) to just the game on its own and pre order a gamecube pad seperately just so i can play it on release costing me more money and i am assured yeah your game will arrive friday, this is on wednesday so then i wait i get 3 seperate emails saying my amiibo have been posted so i think great, but still no smash game, so i phone again asking when my game will be posted seeing as its thursday afternoon now i am assured it has been so i think cool then i get another ticket saying my amiibo wont arrive when i have had 3 seperate emails saying they have been posted so what on earth is going on at all? post has been and no smash bros today i booked today off work too now for no reason, not the end of the world by any means but very very annoying.

Maybe I got in nice and early with my Smash Bros and GC Adapter package - it was posted yesterday so will hopefully be waiting for me when I get home :) Seems a lot of stores are having issues with stock of that item. I'm having issues buying some Disney infinity toys from a rival site - been dead all day and they had a great deal on - can't get to the store itself before it closes so I hope I don't miss out

Just got home and found a Royal Mail card through the door. Looks like I missed my smash bros delivery which is a bit gutting, as the parcel was too big to fit through the letter box.

I was interested in Disney Infinity 2.0 from GAME between 10am and 11am, but could not access the site, so it is too late now, but I am still interested to know what they were selling for. Anybody see?

just picked up season 1 and 2 of the walking dead for £7.99 each is not bad considering yesterday it was 19.99 each and even more for the disk version

Was gonna pick up Season 2 but decided to wait until it comes to the Vita(assuming it does at all) as prefer to play it on the go and while on lunch break. Did however grab Transistor for £7.19 and Tactics Ogre(psp) for the vita as been waiting for that one to be on sale for a long time! FF Tactics was one of my favourite ever games and Tactics Ogre is meant to be the spiritual successor to that game :)

Walking dead season 2 is out on the vita - i've had it for a while, got in the last sale for about 8 quid.

Better deal than on Xbox ONE, £11.99 on there for each season or £20 for both. I have bought it on Steam and Xbox 360 in sales, and do not need it on Xbox ONE just yet. It will be a lot cheaper in time, and then buy it again when they are on sale for a fiver each or less. I am disappointed that there was no discount for people who bought them digitally on xbox 360. I assume there is no difference with them between PS3/PS4/Xbox 360/Xbox ONE, and it is the same game just able to play on the new consoles.

the main reason i picked it up on PS4 was so i can carry my choices onto season 3, and another 60+ easy trophies lol
Zombieflamingo's avatar

Yeah £20 for both on the xbox one was tempting but I have already played them and with the Tales of the Borderlands out now and Game of Thrones next week I will leave it for now. I did get my copy of smash bros + the adaptor today which was good however still not got Little big planet as it was only despatched last night at eight so I sort of gathered it wasn't going to be here for today but it is still annoying.

Well done Shopto, Smash Bros, Persona Q, Pokemon and Amiibo... None of which even turned up today. I did get an email saying one of the Amiibo will be delayed (dunno which one, wasn't even mentioned) but absolutely fuming over the others. Especially Persona because payment was taken on Sunday for that and dispatched Tuesday. Honestly I feel there's less and less reason to use Shopto, you guys used to be great for dispatching and getting next day delivery, that went, then the points system went and now pretty much everything else. Nintendo-wise (which is about 90% of my gaming purchases.) you don't even get any of the pre-order bonuses. tbh this is pretty much the last straw now, no reason to bother anymore

My Smash never arrived today - thought it would have - nevermind :) Should be here tomorrow with my Link Amiibo. Gonna play Pokemon and Disney Infinity 2.0 tonight. I'm debating getting Persona 4 Golden on the Vita and maybe Styx on the PS4 - but I'm gonna look into them a little more as I don't know much about them.

my Smash Bros turned up eventually, plus some of my Amiibo's, but Amazon stupidly sent the rest of my Amiibo's by Royal Mail, so god knows when or even if they'll arrive.

Yeah, it is good that amazon are using royal mail again. I have been using amazon the past month more, and not one order has been sent by amazon logistics, but royal mail. Their logistics service was crap, delivering parcels to the wrong address or after 7pm, and one got delivered on sunday which I thought was semi-good service as was not expecting it until Monday, but that was after it failed to be delivered on the saturday which was not good.. I have had more problems with amazon logistics this year alone than I have had with royal mail in 30 years. If they are no longer using it every time now then obviously many more people other than myself had complaints with the service too.

Has anyone actually managed to buy stuff in the game sales today?. Everytime I try it is under maintenance and telling me to go to one of the 321 stores across the country, but instead I go to other online retailers. Game must be losing from the bf sales, as can not even get to see non bf stuff, and people just go to other online retailers

My amiibo arrived today but no sign of smash bros. was posted on Thursday supposedly. Gonna have to raise a ticket I guess. First time shopto has let me down :(

Turniplord its not shopto that has let you down it is royal mail they have been late on delivery's & pick ups since monday & still are very behind today coz of black friday. So there at fault not shopto just saying.
Turniplord's avatar
Turniplord 2 years ago
I would believe that if my amiibo was the same delivery but the amiibo was second class sent on thurs. smash sent earlier in the day on first class. Just annoying cos I won't be able to pick up til next sat as I work and if it comes on Monday I won't b here. So a big let down. Also this week tho I got dragon age with mising dlc, Pokemon sapphire with no keying enclosed and the amiibo was late. I love shopto but this week has been a mess. Emailed them for the missing items and see what they can do about the late items.

Like i said i had one of my two amibos turn up today, the other one was sent at the same time but has not reached me yet. Thanks to royal mail not shopto this week has been an busy week for most retailers/postal services since it was the run up to black friday but royal mail seems was understaffed, so don't blame shopto for the postal service mistakes.
Turniplord's avatar
Turniplord 2 years ago
Not really blaming them regarding the lateness (missing things falls on them tho) but they do have the guarantee we will have on release though so queried that as never had issue before

Nether have I shopto are great online game retailer & always been on time posting earlier & next day on time. But with big mass holiday deal weekends like black friday orders can be a lot to handle & can get backlogged slightly. It happens sometimes but im sure the postal service will be back on track by monday or tuesday.

Royal Mail has gone to shit since it was privatized, still waiting on my other Amiibo's from them, hopefully today. I just don't understand why Amazon sent them by Royal Mail when they dispatched a similar order to me the same day using their own courier service. Their customer service wouldn't even give me any sort of compensation for them not arriving on release day either, well seeing as they sent them as an untracked delivery they'll only have my word now on whether or not they arrive at all, so maybe they should have offered me something, would have been cheaper than replacing/refunding the order.
Autogamer's avatar
Autogamer 2 years ago
Royal mail are no courier service so it is natural for it not to have quick delivery times, I think 1-3 days for 1st class and within 3-5 days for 2nd class, but the amazon logistics was full of incompetence a few months ago, with each and every order, and blatantly delivering to wrong address on a tracked service is the dumbest thing that has ever happened on any delivery service. I like royal mail because I opted out of having parcels delivered to neighbors, which can take days to a week to get off them. If I am not in parcels get returned to the collection depot, and then I can drive down and collect, or rearrange a new delivery for a day I will be in, or get it sent to the local post office where I can walk there and pick it up. Also royal mail deliveries get mostly delivered by lunchtime, whereas amazon logistics was late afternoon or early evening. Amazon are the stupid ones though, as in my many complaints I say we should be able choose our delivery methods, like you can choose 1st, 2nd, 1st recorded or dpd with shopto. Royal mail works best for me, so I would choose that, and you seem to like their logistics service, so you should be able to choose that.

All of my stuff arrived thankfully. I got LittleBigPlanet 3 on Thursday and Pokemon yesterday. Unfortunately i still don't have the DLC costumes for LBP 3. There is a good PS4 bundle on Amazon, you get the PS4 LBP 3 bundle and The Last Of Us: Remastered for £299, which is a good deal. I saw the Wii U bundles their and they look overpriced in comparison.

If I pre-order off nintendo's shop directly does it take the money straight away, does it take then give back then take properly when released or does it just do a 1 quid check then takes on release? Want to get Majoras mas ltd edition as you get a few nice things for the little extra - don't want to pre-order though if they take the money now.

Just bought Batman 3 :) 30 quid was too good to miss - CEX are giving 29 cash and 32 rtade for it - so if I get it say tue/wed and lock the trade in for cash price - then I'll hammer it, complete and get my money back on Monday after getting the Plat :D

I bought Batman 3 from Shopto on Friday, that was despatched that day 1st class before 5pm but not show yesterday. Smash bros with adapter did not show yesterday either from being despatched Thu 2nd class. Obviously the Royal Mail are busy right now. I received a ovefilm disc sent out Friday though, but that does usually get delivered the next day 99.9% of the time. ShopTo stuff usually gets delivered next day 99% of the time, GAME are also usually good at getting stuff delivered next day 99.9% of the time if ordered in the morning but preorders mostly get delivered on the day than one day early like ShopTO. Amazon never get items delivered a day early, it is mostly on the day or 1 or 2 days later, and if Amazon use Royal Mail then 90% of their stuff arrives when said. I bought GTA V and Far Cry 4 from Amazon as had gift vouchers to spend there, GTA V arrived on the day as was sent Royal Mail tracked, but Far Cry 4 did not arrive for 2 days later, as was sent Royal Mail untracked. Zavvi are not very good at all, most orders can take a week to get delivered and a lot of preorders take weeks to get in stock or not at all. My experience is that ShopTo is still the best and at least they got the Smash Bros game and adapter, unlike Amazon, and are now out of stock and people are selling for over £100. The only thing that puzzled me with ShopTo was that it got shipped Thu instead of Wed, when they seem to have it in from Mon when they started to process the orders one day early, and no notifications.

I am not touching the Steam sales, I am going to wait until the sales next month over Christmas, when hopefully they do the community sales, and special trading cards to make a Christmas sale badge, and when buying stuff also gets you cards too, plus whatever the prices are now they should be cheaper next month. I still have not gotten used to the new layout, it still seems more confusing. Torchlight is currently free until midnight today through ARC, and Torchlight 2 is 75% off.

As long as it turns up, as if it does get lost then I will be cancelling / returning the controller. Without the adapter the controller is useless. Unless ShopTo can charge the same for the game and the adapter individually

They don't take the money now if you pay with paypal Turniplord, I would imagine it's the same if you pay with a card. I ordered the MM limited edition from them about a month ago.

cool, i'm gonna try the paypal method then just to be safe. If shopto had the ltd edition I would have got it here - but the extras are too good to miss out on
