$139 gamecube $165 XBOX $180 PS2

This is at I heard a lot of bad stuff about them, primarily their shoddy shipping. But then, supposedly they've been improving as shown by their new website. Since their shipping to Japan (where I am) was the cheapest of the retailers I could find, I bit the bullet. The XBOX box was placed in a cardboard box without padding but nothing was damaged when I received it. So it was fine. It also took me about 8 days to receive it, when international express said 4. Other than that, if you want low prices for consoles, I don't see anyplace cheaper.

I wouldn't ever buy from them again... they're a little too shaddy for me.

Items not shipped timely even though they've chrged you... and forget about their customer service.

putting the FU back into fun... one post at a time.

I'd rather spend the extra cash and buy somewhere else. Even their retail location in Raleigh is crap.

these guys get stuff off of the back of trucks. avoid them at all costs.
John Henson: McDonald's has dumped Kobe Bryant as their spokesperson and have replaced him with Yao Ming. Apparently McDonald's prefers Yao because he is a bigger international star, and he doesn't rape so much.

They only remain in business because idiots keep buying from them again and again even after the negative reputation and experience.

I will pay double and buy from somewhere else than buying from them. It is that bad.

I've got to get me an American Express card, just so I can use the price match guarantee. I just wish it didn't have such a steep annual fee.
