Overall I was pretty impressed, I only picked up Battlefield, though I was close to getting PGR and Frontlines.

Not sure when the deals good too but definitely worth checking out.


EDIT: If anyone goes to check out the sale could you please post other deals here (namely PS3, Wii and DS) thanks.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

Just a note guys: Some of the offers WILL be shop specific. I spoke to an assistant about this on Saturday, and I think she said it started Monday, but all stores will have a set range of discounts, plus a few that enable them to shift excessive amounts of games that just wouldn't shift normally.

EDIT: It seems any game that isn't from 2008 or after is reduced by 50%

Case in point.

I think I just remembered some more deals:

:360: Mass Effect £7.99
:360: PURE £17.99
:360: Bully £12.99

Yeah I knew about Hitman while I was posting the thread I just wasn't sure if that was a ideal price for the site. Fantastic game though very underrated on the 360.

mass effect @ 7.99 is a no brainer- it angers me thinking it's still there, not sold out yet...

Well Ultimate Box comes with the Party DLC for free which is otherwise £6.80 on Xbox Live, so offset that and you'd get the preowned one and the DLC if you wanted it for £18.80.

Yeah seems like a good idea. The UB was in GAME today for £29.99 way too much in my opinion.

Anyway blockbuster, I went in again today and they had :360: PGR4 £7.99. I was SO close to picking it up, I liked PGR3 but I really don't like the whole "kudos" system and I know the series is heavy on that feature.

Might change my mind though, a need a good racer.


I also picked up this, it contains a few deals I missed out posting before:

My one was rubbish. They did have Okami on PS2 for £3.99 but I didn't have time. The rest of it was pretty much a pile of Pro Evo and Fifa.

I think the reason one of the ones I went to was pretty great was because it used to be a Gamestation, so they had a big buckets full of retro stuff for 99p, and then you had all the left over games they wanted rid of I guess.

The one closer to me was pretty crap, tonnes of sports games, tonnes of "midas" style games for the PS2, and the only attractive next gen game for me was Gears 2, but ended up leaving it...
