Lair and Folklore prices returned to normal on Amazon.co.uk

It seems that the recent price of the Playstation 3 games Lair and Folklore listed on Amazon.co.uk for 14.95 pounds each was a mistake as now they are listed as 34.99 pounds each. (Folklore, Lair, PS3)

ahaha
Well, i've already preordered it when Lair was £15 so they can't charge me £35 now. olliollioooooo

A dragon game feels so cold and un-inclusive to me, I think some warm and tender Folklore would be right up my alley. ;)

I had a problem. They wouldn't send it to me in Ireland so I had to wait to get an english family members address and now I've missed the deal completely! well pi$$ed now. I wonder will they honour the deal anyway
resistance100  +   2579d ago
got my folklore preorder in on time :D and yes they will honour the deal
ReconHope  +   2579d ago
some lucky guys got it for half the price
b4 it went back to $60
monkey602  +   2579d ago
I recon they will have to honour the deal if they dont want their HQ torched. I'm jealous of you guys that got it now
Middleeye  +   2579d ago
happy
I'm happy I ordered them both in time! And I will be even happier if they stick to their side of the deal... *fingers crossed*
Bordel_1900  +   2579d ago
Same here. I ordered both at 15£, and they're still on 15£ at the pre-order info. Hope it stays that way.

same here I got them for £14.95 each p&p free I also saved the email confirming the price and expected delivery date
Just wished I'd ordered several of each now LOL

Glad I ordered mine yesterday! apparently someone emailed Amazon and they said they would honour the price that we bought it at. Can't wait to play Folklore, really enjoyed the demo, and for £15 Lair is definately worth a try.

Amazon UK confirmed
That they will honour their prices so its not an issue. I personally ordered a couple to sell to GAME :d
monkey602  +   2579d ago
you get a "couple" and I can even get one! there is no justice in this world :(

Going straight to GAME
For trade in's ordered 1 of each, Folklore was rubbish, Lair looks boring but might give it a go then I can put the money towards some real decent games on the Xbox 360 instead.
Middleeye  +   2579d ago
or PS3?
just trade them in for one of the great games on the PS3... lol... you'd have to be patient though...

I only own the PS3 but the current games are just rubbish :(. I'm pretty optimistic about september and october though!

Well at least someone who can actually appreciate the game will get them for cheaper.
PimpHandHappy  +   2579d ago
dam i hope the ppl that bought those games at that cheap price still get that price
because i would love to be able to get Lair and Folklore for 30bucks a piece! Even if the games are not the best games out there its still a deal!

im sure they will give you those games and im sure someone lost there job over this mistake! If these games are good you got a great deal!

peace
Middleeye  +   2579d ago
let's hope the guy who gets fired made a pre-order on both games... at least he'll have something to look forward to then :)
monkey602  +   2579d ago
Is there anybody else here who didnt get it in time or am i the only fool?
Antan  +   2579d ago
UK trade descriptions act means they "must" honour the price for which things are advertized. If anyone of you come into dispute with them, direct them to the trade descriptions act........Depending on how many were pre-ordered, i`d say heads may roll.

EDIT-: Well done fella`s below.

What we do about mispricings (From amazon.co.uk)
This is what i found when i searched amazon.co.uk :

What we do about mispricings

Despite our best efforts, a small number of the more than 1.5 million items in our catalogue are mispriced. Rest assured, however, that we verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures.

If an item's correct price is lower than our stated price, we charge the lower amount and send you the item.

If a product's correct price is higher than our stated price, we will cancel your order and notify you of that cancellation.

Hmmm - is that legal?
As fare as i know, unless its plain obvious that the retailer has made a mistake, he is bound by the offer.

Then again - i don't know anything about british consumer legislation - but in most countries the consumer is protected and not the retailer.

hey monkey ( in same clan ) anywayz i was goining to get thembut now they been sorted out im forgetting !
monkey602  +   2579d ago
