I had a email sent to me saying my console would be delivered on the 28th....this was sent out in a error I later found out in the evening after scrambling to sort out a neighbour who would be in as this was coming a day early.
Then I had received a email the following day saying that the item would be delivered on the 29th (the correct date) between 14:52 and 15:52
NO BODY CAME! and then after sending emails via there website (which there is no way to speak to a actual human being, even by the phone number), sending two tweets to their twitter help account and a email to their social media account I got ZERO REPLIES FROM ALL OF THEM!
So now its the 30th and got a email saying the console would be delivered today! so after managing to find the most obsure place to actually get a real phone number that has a real human being on the end of to check for reals if this was gonna be the case.......the person on the other end of the phone thought it was going to be sent out MONDAY the 2ND FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!!!
At this point I said you know what I'LL do the 1hr round trip to your fuckin depot. Litterally burning with rage for what was supposed to be a simple action.
IN SHORT DO NOT USE DPD EVER! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEVVVVVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRR.
If only one duder manages to avoid the same pain I have had then all of this wont have been for nothing.
I still have to wait 5 days for my console and game which is need for speed rivals and all these reviews of the launch games being mediocre at best are seriously making me want to end it all and have sweet release from this next gen launch nightmare.
I think its funny how all the staff on the site openly say in videos 'ohhh man can't wait to get that console of my entertainment cab/ shelf' like its a massive burden.
Personally I cant wait to move my PS3 and xbox off the top of my tv stand .....and down one level as there is plenty of room for all 4 consoles to live in it lol.
I know everyone's needs are different but its funny how all this stuff reeks of first world problems. 'Ohhhhh I can only have the newest stuff in my living room or I'm not part of the current gaming society' FUCK. OFF.
I still used my PS2 and PC to play games for YEARS after the PS3 and 360 were released. Hell my PS2 is STILL hooked up to my TV lol. I had enough forsight to realise I was gonna need a TV with a shit load of ports so I don't have to worry about boxing stuff up. Think I went off on a bit of tangent here but fuck it. Anyways what I'm trying to say is no one should be in a rush to box up your old consoles. ENJOY ALL OF YOUR GAMES DUDERS!
It's a great racing game that does something unique - implements multiplayer and single-player together in a seamless fashion. The tutorials are lacking and you'll spend some time trying to figure out what to do but once you get the hang of it it's smooth sailing.
The graphics are amazing on the PS4 as well. It's one of the better looking launch titles if you are getting it for that console. I'm sure the Xbox One will be just as good looking as well.
Good to know duder. I played the shit out of Hot Pursuit but Most Wanted didnt grab me so am hoping this will keep me going for a good while.
Excited for another Criterion-ish racer. I really enjoyed Hot Pursuit (I enjoyed Most Wanted more, but that's fine). Hope the PC version is good.
Finally! Nice to see someone else who liked Most Wanted more than Hot Pursuit. My friends think I'm crazy.
Your friends are right you are crazy. I couldn't stomach Most Wanted AT ALL! Either way I'm relieved after the revelation that killzone aint all its cracked up to be that I have a decent game to play at launch other than just resogun.
All consumer goods have 1 years manufacturers guarantee! If shit is fucked up and it ain't your fault its fucked up SEND IT BACK TO THE SUPPLIER/ RETAILER. For either replacement, refund or store credit. These are your basic consumer rights duders.
You should have a year from now where you don't have to stress because if a product is made poorly by the company you shouldn't have to foot the bill for a replacement. If you don't have extended warranty's AFTER the 15th of Novemeber 2014 and your PS4 breaks then you will have to get your wallets out again in that case.
