urban: Have you guys checked out cdwow? Great deal on PC games inclusive of shipping!

$62 for ModernWarfare2
$60 for Op Flashpoint2

Gadgetmannz I've played Batman Arkham Asylum on my ps3 and it is indeed pretty damn good. I've also downloaded the joker add-on but have yet to test it out :(

Bradley, I have a 1.5 PSP that I bought from the states a few years ago that I do not use... would you be interested?


Seems a bit dodgy to me...

This is from 2007, which is a bit old granted... But still.

Do a search for cd wow problems.. LOTS of hits.

Yes cdwow is not a NZ company but it looks like they are drop shipping from overseas to NZ. Looking at their website if you have problems. repairs etc you have to send back overseas and as they are overseas. (at your cost it looks like it)

As they are overseas the CGA does not cover you and any other laws in NZ you won't be covered which might be a problem over time. (Stomp HK Ltd is not a NZ company) if you have problems with them

Yes they have had lots of complaints but saying that I have never used them to buy stuff . I also get stuff from mightyape who will match of better any other but I don't think they will match cdwow as they are not a NZ company/website etc but they have matched/better alot of other companies online prices in NZ I've found.

Thanks

Mighty Ape dropped some off the price when I asked, but could not match it. 


To be honest, I would not expect them to.


Never had anything but awesome service from Mighty.

I've bought from CDwow everynow and then, no problems so far(touch wood).

Given the chance I would rather spend a few pingers more to support our local store ie. Mighty Ape. Those daily deals of theirs occasionally sucker me in for a purchase or two :)

Buffynz I must agree MightyApe's service is excellent.
