I'm quite interested in that, you'll have to let us know how it is.
Also, I saw someone buying this in front of me yesterday and there were 2 discs inside it, what is the second disc?

Well, we better buy a couple now and then sell them double the price come Christmas! :D

i got guitar hero ds and sonic n mario olympic games...£12 and £15



morrisons deal ends tomorrow guys so get you arses down there!


if you have a bit of spare cash its worth noting that if you buy the top games at the sale prices (£15/£12) you can then take them straight to gs and trade them in for more (ssbb trades at £22) get credit notes and save them for christmass!

this is a tip given to me by a member of gs staff who i bumped into in morrisons this morning! :D
