(Two Wii posts in one day! It’s like Wii Friday or something!)
It was the day I bought my Wii.¬¨‚Ä† I’d lined up outside Game at half 6 in the morning, and finally – at just after 8am, I had my launch day Wii and was running home as fast as my little legs could carry me.
But there was something that happened that day. When I bought my Wii, I paid for it with my credit card. A few weeks later, I realised my card hadn’t been charged. A few months later, and still no charge. In fact, there was never a charge.
In fact, this week marks the 3rd anniversary of The Day I Bought My Wii. As a result, it also marks the endpoint at which Game could have legally still requested payment. Under UK law, 3 years is the limit on backdated payment requests.
Which means, my Wii is Free, and Game can’t charge me for it. Hurrah! Of course, I’m kicking myself now for not buying everything the shop had to offer on the day.
