Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii) only $16.29 + Free Shipping

6312

I have never seen this game for cheaper! It returns to $90 tomorrow, so make sure you grab a copy (or 5 in my case) before the deal expires.
This is a Wii-only game.

Update: I can confirm this isn't a pricing error because it came in one of their emails. :) In my opinion, Fishpond is pretty decent site - true, they do make some stupid pricing errors sometimes, but they always refund if you ask.

    I paid $100 for mine a few years ago!

      A game got cheaper over a few years!? gasp

      •  

        Thing is though, it's so incredibly difficult to find now for some reason. GAME don't stock it online, and EB is charging $76 for a pre-owned copy. And importers like OzGameShop are out of stock, and UK stores like Zavvi/TheHut simply don't stock it anymore.

          People use it to mod their wii. It's one of like 4 games that can mod your wii now and they all go up in price.

    Mmm.. I see nothing but bad reviews for fishpond.com.au.. But for 16.29 it might be worth the gamble.

      I've used Fishpond many times for ordering textbooks/games online. All of my experiences have been good (the shipping takes a little while), apart from the $14 xbox controller that im sure everyone remembers. Even still, it wasn't that bad, they refunded everyone their money, and if you made the effort to complain they gave you $10 store credit as well.

  •  

    Should i buy? is it worth dealing with fishpond?

    •  

      I've used them before for some books. No dramas, just don't expect it too arrive for 2 or 3 weeks.

  •  

    I grabbed one for the kids. I'm going to risk it for 16 bucks and change…
    Thanks for the heads up as it's one they've been after for a while.

    •  

      I'mm still waiting for something I orders fromt he 22/2/2012…
      it's been "lost" in the mail.. and will prorably need to wait another 4-8 weeks for a replacement…

      If its too good to be true.. don't order it…

    Does anyone know if this is Australian stock or Imported?

    "They refund if you ask". Very generous of them.

    Awesome! Needed this after my brothers wrecked my last one!

    is this another bait and switch from fishpond? (if anyone remembers the xbox controller deal a couple of weeks back)

    •  

      So long as the switch involves just cancelling the order like they did with my controller order, I'd be happy. No way I'd pay full price for this.

    •  

      I wish I listened to you. It was indeed another bait and switch.

  •  

    Thanks mate, ordered! Shall see what happens…

    Great price, had to order, hopefully it arrives after the Predator Trilogy stuff up with Amazon

  •  

    Now… I must buy some old Gamecube controllers off Ebay or something…

  •  

    ordered, thanks

  •  

    thanks, ordered one

    Bugger! Missed out, should have logged on last night. It's now $78.60 :((

      Me too :( I had a look an hour ago and it was still great price and then I just checked and missed out. Some mod put EXPIRED up so no one else gets excited for nothing…

  •  

    I managed to get it last night, thanks a lot for sharing! I had been longing to play this game but the cheapest I had seen it was $60

  •  

    Wondered if it's illegal with this kind of practice?

  •  

    I just go cancelled as well :(
    Very ordinary work Fishpond! I will not be back.

    Now to see if I can change my vote to a neg…

  •  

    No real surprises here…

    BOOO!

    Just got a sold out email from Fishpond… order is being cancelled.

    I actually got in very early on this deal… (only 5 +ves at that time)…

    so probably only had a couple of copies… but still took order.

    negative to fishpond!

    •  

      Same, I actually got in at 2 +ves! Wish I could neg this now, bloody hate Fishpond now

      • +3 votes

        Is it worse than I thought, then. If not even you could get it, it must mean that they didn't have a single copy. They surely needed a quick injection of money and made this little scam to grab our money and then return it much later (by the time they should have already delivered!) with an insincere apology.

        Worse off, after my holidays abroad, I didn't realize that that stupid $16 dollar purchase pushed my credit card limit and I got hit with a $10 overlimit fee. And silly me still thought "well, SMBB for $26 is still a great deal!" sigh

        Will never buy again from this company and will let everyone know about this every time another of their "promotions" appear in this website.

        I'd be surprised if OP got his copies…

    Sold out - won't touch this company again

  •  

    Add me to the list of those that has received the sold out email. Can't say I wasn't warned with the messages above and certainly will be in no hurry to attempt a purchase from fishpond.com.au again in future.

    I'll be interested to hear if anyone actually receives a copy successfully.

  •  

    I ordered 30th April and took them 5 days to notify me that stock is not available.
    I cant believed they don't have real time monitoring of their stock.
    Will refund my money and I will never ever order from them again!
    They just wasted my time.

  •  

    Hi, just got the email as well. How can companies get away with this? Surely there should be someone we can complain to?

  •

  •  

    Fishpond, never again…

  •  

    I am never ordering from Fishpond again, I'm making sure all review websites know about their dodgy scheme to get an injection of money and notify their customers a few days later that they are out of stock. FISHPOND YOU SUCK!

    Their email says:

  •  

    Received the same email, not happy at all.

  •  

    Yeah, i'm spewin'….just got 2 emails in relation to this order, received my cancellation email for Uncharted Drakes Fortune yesterday, and it provides a search link to the "exact" same product at 6x the price, although they claim that they can't source it !!!!!
    Went to phone them, but you can only contact them via email…with a 24-48 hour response time…lucky, i was gonna let someone have it !!!!

    NEVER AGAIN…I hope the ACCC investigate, and the company dies in the ass, it's what they deserve

  •  

    THIS IS PURE EVIL!

    I will remind everyone of Fishpond's dodgy tricks on every 'deal' that comes by this website from now on!

    NOT HAPPY!

    Everyone keep watching and commenting here to monitor how prompt (or more likely, not) are they going to be about refunding the money.

    And to think that just the day after I jumped into this fiasco I got an email from ozgameshop alerting me that they had just restocked SSBB (for $46) and I happily deleted it believing myself already in the possession of a $16 copy. As you could expect, by now they are also out of stock.

    In hindsight, we all should have realised that a game that's so hard to find nowadays and going for such a ridiculous price was proverbially too good to be true.

  •  

    They canceled both of my orders for SSBB and Uncharted.

    Can't NEG this as my account is less that 30 days old. They cancelled order. Sh1tpond.

    If i paid via paypal, will they refund straight back to my paypal account? its been 3 days already..

  •  

    Still waiting for my refund as well :/

  •  

    Now the website is saying it's in stock selling for $40, they are not going to get away with it so easily…..(angry)

    •  

      Damn, $40 is very tempting, but I seriously cannot stomach giving them my business anymore.
