Being in Melbourne, I thought I'd take advantage of this, but nope. I was online at 8am when the sale supposedly began, but everything of value was out of stock pretty much everywhere local.

It was DSE staff that took the best of it for themselves. One person posted on their facebook page about how they literally watched the staff inside the store walk out with bags full of stuff before the store opened for the day.

I went down to the DSE in the Melbourne CBD and lined up at 8.45, waiting for the store to open at 9am. The moment we got inside, we're told they have no consoles or handhelds in stock.

Lined up at Chatswood from 8am. Was in the first 20 there. One asian guy hid 4 G19 keyboards and 2 Cata Steelseries keyboards around the store, must of done this yesterday so they were all taken by him. How fucked is that...

Picked up a 4gb xbox 360, 2x gold membership cards and 10x 3k point cards and got to the counter. Sorry we only had 2 consoles to sell and the membership and points cards are different stock numbers to that on the system so they weren't on special. GGF Wastey :evil:

What a waste of time... Walked to ARC and bought a Razar Blackwidow Ultimate Elite keyboard and a Razar Naga Epic mouse. Retail therapy done!

I went in at lunchtime, of course most of the good stuff was gone.

Sposedly they had 3 x G19s, the first 3 guys bolted in and grabbed them.

They had 60 people waiting for the store to open, however at 8am they did a patrol of the store and found where people had hid most of the lewtz and put them back on display, so sucks for thiose people.

I picked up 7 PS3/Wii/360 games (all shit i didnt want) for $5 each then promptly walked over to GAME and traded them in. Cost $45 dollars, $92 trade value. Bought Darkness 2 and FFXIII-2 just for shits n giggles.

Tho in hindsight I might actually return Darkness2 and FFXIII-2 since they are unopened and just take the store credit and use it for Diablo or something ill actually play, since i have buckleys chance of actually getting to use my TV and im too pov to afford a 2nd one..

Its only 88 at EB.

I got $91 trade credit for a $45 cash outlay, so it still works in my favour buying D3 for $45. Even cheaper than the digital! :p

There is no way to redeem or check points online.

Go in-store or look at that email.

FFS well that was a trial.

Dickhead at GAME transferred my $82 store credit and my $30 cash to a diablo 3 preorder...then gave me a credit note for the difference.

When i said I wanted the preorder paid for with the store credit and the cash put back on my card he arc'd up saying it was a trade in BLAH BLAH BLAH no cash

Couldnt get it through his skull I just wanted my cash back that I paid with cash, and the credit to go on the preorder.

He was like thats our policy, it uses cash first, I said no its not, I want my refund as stated on the website. He responded with these are the conditions right there on this panel on the desk, to which i pointed out the first line which confirmed exactly what I had said.

What a moron...

Finally took a manager coming back into the store at the right time to work out how to fix it all up.
