Big W Plans To Use Your Frustration To Increase Pre-Orders On Xbox One And PS4

As we all know, both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 are in high demand. Stock is limited and retailers are battling over the next set of units. This means — that for stores like EB Games, JB Hi-Fi and Big W — pre-orders are all important. If they can prove demand is high at their store, they’ll get more consoles.

That’s why staff at Big W have been informed to try and sell pre-orders onto customers frustrated at the fact both consoles will most likely sell out quickly.

Lunchtime Deal: iPod Touch 8GB $178

The entry-level iPod Touch is one of those products that regularly sees small price drops below Apple’s “official” selling price of $219, but it’s been a while since I’ve seen any retailer willing to take a larger hit on it. Big W’s current special sees it selling for $178; combined with a current free shipping promotion, this is a decent deal if you wanted an entry level iOS device. [Big W]


New iPad Goes On Sale First In Australia [Video]

Bring on the Lamingtons, Australia got the new iPad first! Too bad it doesn’t do 4G here. Maybe that’s why queues were clearly down. Gizmodo hit the streets of Sydney for Telstra’s midnight opening, while just across the road Apple faithful quietly considered an unexpected twist. Buy a $30 Telstra prepaid stater pack and they could grab the iPad outright (not on a plan) long before Apple opens at 8am. What’s an iPad camper to do?
