Metroid Other M and Sin and Punishment: Successor to the Skies for £5 each from Asda of all places. Pre-owned but mint condition, the Stars thing hadn't even been scraped off, bargain.

You will find that most of Asda's preowned stock is in fact NEW. most of the stores by me have loads of copies of both of those games as well as Sam & Max on the Wii. Also, Asda give pretty decent prices on Trade-ins which is great as most of their new release games are cheaper than Game/HMV etc.

Also bear in mind that a lot of ASDA stores put the discs in drawers so they open a lot of brand new stuff - to which I do object but then its rare I buy there for that reason alone. I had to go through their entire stock before I found a disc that wasnt scuffed from this process when getting Pokepark 2 for my boy (a few days after release). Terrible terrible idea but ok for sale stock.

got these couple of bits from the console passion stall at play expo (for a very decent price too - perk of being in earlier and getting to look through the baskets before they go out on the stall) :D

wont tell you howmuch these cost then :-) the chap very nearly sold me all of the games that were out on the tables with the machine too for the same price, would have been ace as i would have bagged about 8 gx4000 games in one go then (i had to tell him to take them away from the machine on display as they would prob have been nicked by some random attendee)
