UK CAG seems to be haemorrhaging into an early grave, the website only seems to track amazon prices now, and this forum hasn't had a new post in weeks.

What's the deal?

It's been on hiatus while I've been working on the new site, which is going to launch soon - all the UK data feeds will be fixed (with new ones added) as well as a lot of new features.

To me at least this part of the site's been superseded by the likes of PostaBargain and HotUKDeals since they always seem to get wind of the good deals before CAGUK these days.

Good to hear there's new foundations being laid though.

Hopefully the new design injects a new lease of life.

It'd be about $50 (maybe $53 or so with delivery unless they charge a lot more than standard to the US).

I don't own a 3DS but I believe it isn't region free so a game from a PAL region won't work on your NTSC 3DS.

If I am wrong anyway and it will play it and you order it then there probably will be import duty on it. The amount can vary from country to country though and depends on where you import from. For example I'm in Ireland and when importing an item from the US I have to pay VAT on items (currently it's 23% so it ends up a pretty big amount). You can get around this by asking anyone you buy a game from to label it as a Gift but a store like GAME or Amazon (or any major retailer really) won't normally do this for you.

I don't understand how people are always viewing the uk forums with at least 5 people at any one time and yet they don't post any threads or deals. If people started to post more deals I'm sure this would kick start things up.

Most threads are just for things that can't be put into the deal stream like particular sales or upcoming offers and whatnot. Here we mostly just get random deals or cut prices on specific items. Heck even I'm going to HUKD more than here for gaming deals because it's more active.

I use HotUKDeals alot for the deals but try to repost them on CAG dealstream if they are good. Share the love. Forum should be for subjects outside the dealstream in my opinion. Would rather check CAG for my game deals so I dont end up buying all that random shizzle you see on HotUKDeals however!!! :-#

Has the relaunch been cancelled? I posted a load of deals on the deal stream today but I doubt anyone even checks it these days since the latest deal is from 3 days ago and before that 11 days ago!

For the record I am willing to make more of an effort to post game deals up when I see them but one guy does not make a community :( It would be good to see the UK forum revitalised with DoTW threads and App Store deals. Maybe even have a few competitions again? The competitions listed ended years ago.

I agree Jez360. Its frustrating when a deal sits in moderation and can be expired by the time its been approved.

There have been more deals posted in the last few days than I've seen for ages, I'll try to keep my effort up but kudos to everyone else taking part (Flash Harry in particular today)

Shouldn't the new site be up by now? Postabargain, HotUKDeals, Vanillaplay, some other video game forums... They`re all good for browsing deals but I miss the personality of CAG.
