GAME oversells £150 PS4 bundle, offers killer deal as an apology

Last week a number of PS4 bundles went on sale around the UK for £150. The deal looked too good to be true and, for some GAME customers, it was.

Over the weekend, many customers who’d nabbed the FIFA 17 bundle were issued with refunds after the retailer struggled to get its ‘sold out’ sign up in time.

As a result, those missing out are peeved claiming they could have jumped on one of the other retailers offering similar deals, with Sony seeking to exhaust stocks of the chunky, three-year-old PS4.

By means of an apology, GAME is emailing the affected buyers with a sweetener of a deal on a new PS4 Slim, although it will require them to part with more cash.

First of all, those affected users will get to keep a three-month Now TV subscription, doled out with the original bundle.

They’ll also get a £20 off voucher off a £250 PS4 Slim 500GB bundle with FIFA 17, an additional three month Now TV subscription and a free copy of Uncharted 4.

In a statement (via Eurogamer), the retailer said: “Unfortunately due to unprecedented demand, the PS4 Bundle containing FIFA 17 and a Now TV pass sold out extremely quickly and we were unable to fulfil a number of orders.

“We’d like to apologise to customers affected and will be refunding orders in full. Any reward points used will be automatically credited back to accounts and customers will also keep the Now TV three month subscription free of charge. The bundle will not be available to purchase in the future.”

Is GAME’s offer good enough? Or should it honor the original price with a PS4 Slim? Share your thoughts below
