Lots of you — an overwhelming majority, it seemed — got mightily ticked off with Dick Smith’s bargain games sale last week, especially relating to the touchy issue of staff making off with the discounted gear. Dick Smith Electronics is making what it calls a “goodwill gesture” offering 30 per cent off games and games accessories until this Sunday.
A statement on Dick Smith Electronics’ website reads as follows:
Due to the unauthorised leaking of an internal price list last week, our Game On Sale has exceeded expectations. As our Game On Sale continues this week, we would like to inform our customers that stock is selling faster than expected. We thank you for your patience and continued support and apologise for any inconvenience caused. As a gesture of goodwill in addition to the Game on Sale event we will now be offering extend the offer to include 30% off gaming software and accessories until Sunday 15 April. Please note that this excludes all gaming consoles, digital cards & already advertised catalogue lines in our Game On brochure (11/4 – 23/4/12).
30 per cent off isn’t to be sneezed at; while there’s some stuff that only comes down to the kinds of prices you might see at online retailers, some of the peripherals offerings could be worth ordering. [Dick Smith Electronics via Vooks]
