Hey, thought I would give you guys my thoughts on 'NZGAMESHOP.COM"

I ordered 2 Blu Ray movies at a very good price (Free shipping too!) Also placed an order for COD MW2, sure enough they were out of stock with COD, emailed asking for a refund, within 2 days I had the money back in my account.

Onto the subject of shipping, it was shipped on Wednesday (NZ Time)  Arrived this morning (Monday) through the post.  They were packed securely with cardboard packets.

So far I'm very impressed with this store, will defiantly use them more often.  I like getting a good price on what I buy, and getting games from here seem to be alot cheaper than most stores in NZ, even Steam in some cases.

Well I'm finished now, cya

thanks for the info, Ive wondered about them in the past but never used them. Might give them a try as their prices are pretty sharp.

I hope it's a fairly decent joystick... maybe with this I can actually fly a jet properly, like I never could in BF2!

Hmmm, prices for Forza 4 pre-order look decent. I may pre-order when I get paid at end of month.

still no reply from mightyape, even tweeted them. if they do price match wont be able to get it by tomorrow now due to their slow response. pretty useless for a internet company.

This is one area I find slow with MA, usually within 24 hours, most of the time?

got a reply, killzone 3 for $35 at nzgameshop, mightyape offered me it at $45. i rather just go to jb and pick it up than pay MA $45 for it and wait 2 days (missed the "delivered tomorrow" cut off).

pretty slack really.

also i would have to pay for deliver onto of MA offer, so jb is looking pretty good.  or wait 4 to 8 days and save $20.....

reven: would getting to JB be free for you? Won't you need to pay transport costs? At a minimum of 30c per KM for running your car, and your own times value, I think $5 for delivery is reasonable :)

see i dont, i rather drive down the road (a total about 2km) to jb hifi, pick it up then and there, maybe do some grocery shopping at the same time.   also my time to pick it up maybe an hour, my time waiting for it to arrive, chance of missing courier driver, sorting out pick up with courier == way more time.

i would personally rather buy games on demand if there weren't so expensive, oh and i'm not sure if i'll ever trust my cc with PSN :) (have bought on demand from xbox before, but you're paying the same price if not more for those games)
