Amazon keeps selling great games for great prices. Here are some more:

The first two games are easily worth $10. I can't vouch for Hitman, and everyone's probably already played GTAIII. Onimusha's already been posted in another thread but its a great game so I reposted it. Free shipping with Amazon Prime, or with $25 of purchases or more.

I'm actually playing through Sly 2 right now, and all I can say is if you don't own it, jump all over that deal! :)

I'd snap on Sly 2, except I'm certain it'd come GH, and I'm a stickler for such things...

Do you have to play the game with the backwards camera view? I rented the game once, and couldn't get used to having the look controls reversed. Fun game, and if there were a way to change the camera view, I would buy it in a flash.

It is a good game. Of course, I got it for around $10 more than a year ago, so this isn't a huge deal for that particular game, but it's certainly worth that.

Yup, it's like Splinter Cell, except you're a girl with a camera. =P

What's with all the PS2 crap? I wish Amazon would release these at $10 for the GameCube or Xbox...PS2 versions of multiplatform games suck. I'd rather spend an extra 5 bucks and get a much better GameCube or Xbox version. FYI: Beyond Good & Evil was built for the GameCube, then ported to other systems.

GTA3's not worth it either, especially since it's a greatest hits edition, plus the Xbox version is better, and you can get a PS2 copy for $5 at GameStop. Speaking of which, you can get Beyond Good & Evil for $10 for the Xbox and $15 for the GameCube at GameStop as well.


Thanks for the info, dude. Maybe you can do a search in Amazon or go to Request a Deal forum to ask about Amazon deal on cheap GC and XB games.

Amazon just usually has more PS2 versions in stock.

BGE is definitely a must buy for me, the XBOX version that is.

Sly 2 is PS2 only tho

If you haven't noticed, Microsoft stopped production of the XBOX and is basically not supporting it at all (Conker was it). That means most 3rd parties, while releasing new games, aren't printing more of the ones they released. This means XBOX versions are becoming rare -- take, for example, Prince of Persia: 2 Thrones. Search for it on Best Buy or Circuit City -- the XBOX/GCN versions are long gone. The PS2 versions are all in stock.

That of course is due to 2 reasons: (1) Sony typically supports its consoles for 1-2 years more after its successor comes out, and (2) 100% backwards compatibility allows publishers to print more without fear of leaving dead inventory -- distributors will also keep the demand going ...

So in short -- doesn't mean you won't see GCN/Xbox deals; but just expect prices for those to stay level since they're fewer copies and sustained demand.

I totally agree with that. Better than the Ratchet and Clank series IMO.

Way too much for GTA III. You can get it for 4 bucks at Gamecrazy. Great deal for BGE.
