    Good luck - hopefully they won't keep you waiting too long! Was this a final round or are there more stages after that event?

    And yes, it's a new copy of the game.
    Yeah there's still an assessment day/interview if I get passed this stage.

    I'll be hunting for a cheap copy of Bioshock 2 now!

    Copies seem to come up with reasonable regularity. I've been keeping an eye on eBay intermittently for a couple of days and narrowly missed a few. If you're willing to be patient I'd suggest bidding on a few auctions with a bid a little above £20 - certainly you shouldn't have much trouble gertting a copy for sub-£25.

    I failed the aptitude test (didn't read the instructions properly, thought the time limit was for each subsection, not the whole section :doh:). Oh well, Standard Life Assessment centre tomorrow.

    Ahh right, sorry didn't read your post properly.

    Indeed it doesn't. I feel for the people who have recently paid him/her £10 for a game they will never recieve..

    IIRC about 30 copies of his bioshock sold when i checked the other day.

    That's £300 he has fleeced, plus the 20+ COD:MW2 games he sold to people..

    What a ****.

    I suppose the only downside is the loss of their feedback history, making it less likely that they'll be able to con people in future. Though, with that good a deal there will pretty much always be someone who'll take the chance. :mad:

    Feedback can easily be obtained again though. It's quite easy to "sell" something to another account he has made, setting their feedback to private & building up a reputable account etc... with made up accounts by him/her.

    Might seem extreme lengths, but con-artists i think would go to any lengths to shaft people.

    You are right, it is a very tempting thing seeing computer games for cheap.

    I've always been quite carfeul, so hopefully this will never happen to me.. But who knows.. :lol:

    Thanks :yy:
    You can redeem it online too without your PS3. Log in on playstation.co.uk, go to My Account, and Redeem Code; from there though, it looks like a wallpaper rather than a whole theme.

    Boom. Managed to get Batman: Arkham Asylum for £18 and Bioshock 2 for £28. Both brand new and sealed. Both from eBay. Bioshock 2 is also selling for £29.85 at Shopto if people can't be bothered to use eBay. I probably could have waited a little longer to get a better deal, but I couldn't be bothered.

    Hi all,

    Today I bought a ps3 slim with uncharted 2, AVP and a hd cable. I have noticed that while playing Uncharted there are blue dots all over the place (only in game, not on movies etc). It isn't as noticeable in AVP (only on doors and the guys hand). Does anyone know why it is doing this? Should I take the ps3 back?

    On a possibly related note, the AV cable supplied with the ps3 doesnt seem to work.

    Please help

    i suggest taking it back to the place where you purchased it.
    if its anywhere like GAME or comet etc, then they probably set it up at the shop and you will be able to show them.
    just to be on the safe side, take some pictures to show them proof.

    and if it turns out to be your tv or just some settings that havnt been set propperly then theres no harm done.



    edit: maybe phone them up first and explain everything to them.
