From what I understand dragonbox.de put up new GCW Zero units but they got sold out pretty instantly, so I definitely think the market exists for it if you are willing to ship to Europe. I wanted to get one from dragonbox but alas, I was too late.

So now I've preordered from you, using a US-resender service to get it sent to Europe.  ;D

(it would be nice if I could buy it directly though, then I might even buy two of 'em)

I too missed a missed a unit from dragonbox. I have been checking the website everyday ever since and no further units have been on sale :(  Evildragon is a really good seller but I think he is busy with his upcoming Pyra and hasn't got much time to sell GCW Zeros, even though he does have stock.

Good to hear... thanks for the support!

I can find no other seller in Europe so I hope you decide to ship to UK as I really want a unit and will definately buy a unit from you

Are these brand new, unused and unopened factory sealed units? (not refurbished, repaired or used etc)?

The order that I am placing with GCW is for brand new, factory sealed units.

Hey everyone... to those still interested in preordering a unit, I was thinking of adding a custom service, optionally of course, to those that wanted a razor thin, clear cover over the screen. The additional service would be an additional $50 or so, I have to calculate the cost due to outsourcing but its a neat feature that I wanted to throw out there, maybe gauge interest in it to see if anyone had a desire for it, etc.

I recall performing the service for my own Zero when I owned one a few years ago and it helped tremendously by preventing dust & other particles from always covering the screen, etc. Although the custom job is permanent to the screen, I thought the provider that did it was excellent and they are still around at a nearby mall.

So, with that being said, if there's interest in this, voice your opinion here & I'll debate whether to add the service to my site.

 :P

Just wondering, has the sticky direction pad issue been dealt with now? Has this issue be resolved in a new production run?

That's a great question. As it turns out, I spoke with a representative of GCW this afternoon & asked that very question. I was told that over time on the market, that production relating to that/those issues has improved with production runs, etc.

I presented the question since I, too, was concerned about this myself. I wanted to make sure that was the case & I was reassured that many of those kinds of issues are nonexistent now.

Now, personally, I have no idea... I recall only ordering one unit from Thinkgeek.com when they were selling prior to being acquired by Gamestop. From my experience of my unit that I purchased, it did NOT have any of those sticky button/dpad issues that I kept hearing about.

So, as of now, I wouldn't worry too much about that with a new production one that should happen soon that I plan on providing. If you would like more information about it, you can always email GCW at their address that is located over at www.gcw-zero.com

However, it's a great question that you bring up since I am hoping to become a steady reseller of the unit in the near future.

Again, although I have NOT made a firm decision about shipping overseas yet, I am still open to the possibility of providing international shipping for this batch. So, if there are those of you out there that would like to order but live outside of the USA, let your voices be heard on this thread.

Thanks.

 ;D

Thanks for providing updates. As I have mentioned earlier in the thread, I am from UK and want to order a unit, as currently there are no new units on sale on European sites.

I see in the website you have already added option for international shipping so can overseas buyers now preorder?

Haha, very good observation that you made so quickly. I believe I will, in fact, accept orders overseas for European buyers as well.

However, kindly hold off on placing an order as I still need to work out the ordering system on my end so that everything regarding shipping/taxes/links are properly in place. I may need another few hours until I can make sure that all my links & information match correctly, etc.

So again, yes, I think it's fair that I offer this abroad as well since it is sold out (brand new) at all retail outlets as of this moment. Thanks for the post as well.

 :D


UPDATE:  Ordering system has been updated to allow international shipping to Europe as well as the USA. Spread the word everyone! Thanks!

That's awesome!

Would it be possible for me to change my existing preorder over to international shipping? Or possibly cancel it and place a new separate order instead?

Send me an email to my contact information on the website... that way i can follow up on your order & make the necessary adjustment so that you simply pay for international shipping instead, etc. When you email me, make sure to mention your name & the email used to place the original order.

It's a permanent, razon-thin protective film that covers the screen of the Zero. It is water resistant, helps by always keeping smudges/fingerprints manageable & helps by preventing dust getting underneath the screen as well.

I am not sure about that... I would imagine that they perform the modification once your GCW ZERO is sent in to them via mail, etc.  However, I could be wrong though. Furthermore, my intention through my shop is to set aside unit(s) & take them to a Ghost Armor kiosk at a nearby mall & perform the mod in-person. Hope this helps.

To those wondering about the estimated switch from mid-February to March on my website regarding the GCW ZERO batch order... it is simply due to the unforseen Chinese new year.

I apologize for the confusion & the updated estimate now shown at www.dreamesper.com

A few more questions:

Which state are you shipping these out from?

How did you order your supply of 100 units?

How long does it take for the company to produce the consoles?

Do you know where in China they are being manufactured?

Thanks in advance!
