Amazon sells Phantom Menace for 12p
People buying 200 copies a time
Amazon.co.uk is holding an urgent internal investigation after it offered the video Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace for just 12p (20 cents). Including postage and packing and VAT, the sum total for the video comes to a bank-breaking £3. The Register understands that some people have ordered as many as 200 copies. A spokeswoman for Amazon.co.uk said she was aware of the decimal point slip and that the matter was under investigation. She wouldn't say how many had been ordered. In a statement today, the company said it would honour purchases at the knockdown price on the basis of one copy per customer. Last year e-tailer Wstore said a computer glitch was responsible for reducing the prices of some PCs from £1200 to just £12. And Argos sold Sony TVs for just £3.
