It's weird that on some screens the first/minecraft bundle shows at £199GBP

Jumps to £229 when you click on that option though.

Yeah I saw the two prices being advertised concurrently earlier today alright but now only the GBP229 option is showing. I think they must have been lightning deals or similar...

Currently showing as unavailable, and more interestingly, those that are available say they don't ship to NZ...

Weird eh? When I ordered it said "In stock 30th November" so my order hasn't entered the shipping phase yet... A quick browse shows that the Tomb Raider title is only available 3rd party so I'm assuming this is what's causing the delay as all the other items are in stock now. I'm hoping they don't suddenly decide to change their minds about shipping to NZ although other NZedders certainly have bought and received Xbox hardware from them in the recent past...

Found a couple of options locally via eb games which may be of interest to those who missed out on the Amazon deal - both are 500GB consoles for $429 collect in store or add $15 for delivery.



First one is the console with Gears of War 4 and a vertical stand: https://ebgames.co.nz/xbox-one-999255-500GB-Xbox-One-S-Console--1-Game-Xbox-One



Second is a minecraft bundle plus the game Recore but no vertical stand: https://ebgames.co.nz/xbox-one-999253-500GB-Xbox-One-S-Minecraft-Console--1-Game-Xbox-One

Amazon have now charged us and the order status has changed to waiting to be dispatched, so looking positive.

Same for me on FIFA console and Tomb Raider this AM but Forza still not entered that phase yet.

Does yours say "Will dispatch Dec 1st?"

Yeah we're $299 also, so wonder if the console and game are coming separately?

I've been charged NZD$352 which is $48 short of what I should have been... roughly the same for you guys. Common denominator is Forza I think, would certainly seem to be shipping separately.

Possibly because they dont want to run the risk of duty/gst becoming payable since they would be the ones covering it?

Mine is still showing preparing to dispatch.

 

I'm in no rush, but I've heard of others successfully claiming shipping back if it arrives after the date of the shipping option.

 

Given this deal was cheaper for us on the 2-4 day shipping option, and it hasn't left yet, if it does go ahead we may stand a chance of being able to lobby for this.

 

If successful, that would make this damn cheap.

Status is "Dispatching now" for the FIFA console and tomb raider with forza still showing as "Not yet dispatched". I guess I could cancel the game now if is wanted to save nearly $50 but I'm happy to proceed with it at that price, probably $30+ cheaper than local. Have also seen others report claiming a discount for the priority shipping window being missed, will cross that bridge if I come to it but yeah, that would make it a hell deal
