And it all started with this glorious Very (and sister company Littlewoods) we had been waiting 77 days. While there have been a few issues with the website, we hope you managed to land one.
If you haven’t, there’s a good chance you have one thanks to the massive four-hour drop at Thu – according to rumor, it was a transport of 15,000 consoles. The end of the day was a little drop of ShopTo, while Curries sent more VIP codes. Check your inboxes, you could be one of the chosen ones.
Otherwise, well, you’re probably super unlucky. But don’t worry, all of the above drops – Very bar – were not planned and took us by surprise. Amazon and Smyths could have drops very soon. We’ll keep you posted as soon as they happen.

The latest entry in the long-running survival horror series, Resident Evil Village departs further from its old-fashioned zombie heritage and continues in the vein of the immersive first-person horror experience that made Resident Evil 7 such a success.
