Sign my E-Petition.

I’m unhappy with the way many retailers are taking advantage of the shortage of goods by refusing to sell the item without bundled extras.

For example, I bought my XBOX360 from Dixons (now Currys). After months without stock, they finally obtained them, however they would only sell them as a package with 2 games, adding ??100 to the price. Two games that I would never normally buy. I see it happening again with the Nintendo DS and Wii consoles. I thought this practice would be illegal, but it seems it isn’t – I think it should be.

So I’ve started a petition at the UK Government’s E-Petition web site. If you agree with me, that this practice should be outlawed – please sign the petition here.
