EBGames offering Nexus 7 for Pre-Order, available 27/07 with Transformers Movie included


EBGames is offering the 16GB Nexus 7 for pre-order at $297.97 undercutting the Google Play Store on price and offering pickup in-store so no need to pay the extra $20 delivery fee. The other interesting factors are the inclusion of the release date, they advise the tablet will be released on the 27/07 and they also advise that the deal includes the Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon Movie as well as the $25 of store credit.

This is interesting in that just yesterday we were advised by Google that the Purchasing of movies would not be available initially, so perhaps they are saving the launch of Movie purchases for the launch of the tablet in-stores. Could that also mean we could see TV Shows, Music and Magazines? Only time will tell, Google does play its cards close to its chest, they pretty much don’t comment on these sort of things right up to the point that they make the service available. Anyway, if you are willing to wait till the 27th of July you could save a couple of dollars.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Mine arrived from Google Play on the 25th of July (Wednesday last week), with transformers and the credit. I would never buy anything from EB Games, they’re excellent at trading in products and trying to sell them as new, you never can be sure what you’re getting from that place hasn’t been used and returned thanks to their policy. I don’t believe I paid any shipping, got the 8GB and the 16GB in one shipment. $299 and $249 USD each. So I can save $3 and get it from EB? No Thanks.

I read yesterday somewhere that movie purchase, TV shows and music negotiations had fallen through with rights holders in the UK, so the nexus 7 was to be released there without those options.

I don’t see why movies is available if its available on handsets and other tablets. Music magazines TV shows sure…

This is interesting considering EB sells all its other tablets for rediculously high prices. Remember even if a pay to own Google movies gets dropped (instead of pay to rent) all of the movies are actually crap

I still struggle to see why someone would ‘buy’ a movie like this anyway… Magazines, sure I get that, but movies? Don’t we all have the internet…

I think you mean Transformers: Dark of the Moon (Unless they did include some Transformers and Pink Floyd mashup) 😉

really great, I guess the savings here is on the shipping. Too bad I’ve already pre-ordered mine from Google.

A bit annoying this is. I have preordered the 16gb on the play store and now I find its available cheaper from a local store, at about the same time… I doubt we will have ours til then anyway as it will have to be shipped from Singapore …

Good to see local stores selling it though

I thought the samr initially, but you’ll note no reference to the $25 play store credit, and when you factor that in they work out at the same price.

EB Games are also offering the $25 Play store credit – ”
Receive $25 Google Play Credit and Transformers: Dark of the Moon for FREE When you purchase a Nexus 7″ I tried to cancel my pre-order, but most people are being notified it’s too late because they are being prepared for shipping.

I pre-ordered mine and had the wrong shipping address. Called google up to change and they advised they had to cancel the order and I had to replace it. The operator made no fuss at all re: cancelling and there was no obligation on me to re-order. So I’m guessing you can just call them up and cancel it?

Got to hate the joys of buying something as soon as it is released,
