Title: Where to get the zero from?
Post by: TheScammerWolf on May 21, 2016, 01:03:29 pm
Hi im getting the zero in about a month but cant seem to find a place that stocs them. Thinkgeek doesnt have them. GWW doesnt stock them anymore. Ithic is overpricing but still doesnt sell them. Willgoo is pre selling but i havent got an idea when thet Will have them. So does anyone know where i could get one from?

@TheScammerWolf Ithic is NOT overpricing them.  If you look carefully, it states that they are "SE" models - SE stands for "special edition".  special edition units are harder to come by, and come with a 32 GB internal storage as opposed to the normal Gcw zero's which come with 16 GB internal storage. They also say special edition on the bezel.  I got mine from @ithic.com  and they are the best.

Why are these not being sold anywhere? :(

Are they still in production? I had a  gcw zero but sold it and did consider getting a GPD XD but with the new Temper and PSX emu's I have now decided that I want a zero again! Is there any place in UK that will be receiving stock soon?

A UK seller extreme-hardware recently had some in there ebay store but have sold out.

He responds here on the board from time to time, perhaps you can send him a pm? Or an email?

Also try contacting the webshops to get an indication of when they get new stock, if they get it at all.

Otherwise, your only options are ebay or these forums.

Since I maintain the store page, I can give you some insight in potential new resellers.

A number of stores showed interest to become a GCW Zero reseller and they are waiting to see how much interest there is.
It'll be up to potential customers to contact the resellers since I know nothing about stock and availability of each of the individual stores.

There's two UK stores showing interest and one US store. The UK stores are gamesconnection.co.uk (http://gamesconnection.co.uk) and retroempire.uk (http://retroempire.uk) and the US store is gameinstock.com (http://gameinstock.com).

Ithic mentioned something about revamping the website for the launch of the Pyra.

Ireland, check the topic. At least he had it advertised for that particular amount.

I contacted the two UK stores and both are hoping to stock the units soon which is good news but it would be helpful if we could get official word from Justin himself on confirmation and timeframes of production.

 For everyone's sake I hope this is true. But I will say, this whole "preorder/in stock soon" stuff has been going on since before the end of last year.  And now those retailers have completely dropped off from selling GCW zero's altogether.   Then we had Wilgoo do the same thing? And with the same results, still in "preorder/in stock soon" for over 9 months.
  so I don't know,  but in the case of my personal experience and from the pattern I am seeing, I would say you should probably jump on whatever opportunity you can to get a GCW0 wether used or new.

Gameinstock have removed the GCW Zero from their website due to issues with the manufacturer. I hope Justin can give us an update with the situation of retail units. He posted on another thread in September that 40 units were ready for a US vendor then 40 for UK afterwards. They have not been available yet and we have not heard anything since.

Posted this in another thread.

I had a support chat conversation with @EvilDragon from Dragonbox.de a few days ago and he says that he has an order of GCW Zeros. He is just checking them all for defects before he puts them up for sale on his shop. He said that they should be available sometime this month.
