    I'll take 3 x Super-over-clock-editions. Can I do a EFT? My driver will come and pick up.

    Think they added this to the Controller Patent to make it portable.

    A lot of my friends never got their console and some not even refunds. As stated I was just lucky, but I was also phoning them everyday, to ensure I was getting my order.

    Those were dark days for the people affected by Phoenix Tech.

    I'd like to think that we have all become a lot more cynical/aware and won't be so trusting should another scam like this pop up.

    What exactly happened? Did some people actually get Ps4s? I remember seeing the threads and stuff, but completely avoided it.

    They basically oversubscribed the amount of orders so yes some were delivered but they couldn't fulfil all of them and then ran into financial troubles so people didn't get consoles or refunds and basically lost lots of money to have it on "day one" which wasn't even really day one and not all that far away from the local launch.

    So basically they started out legit but then somewhere along the line someone took a run with the money.
