GAME are selling various PS2/Xbox/PC games for 98p - £5. Most of the games on offer are sports titles, but there are a few gems. A Doom 3 expansion pack for £1.99, for example.

The trick is to visit it during the allocated opening hours. You often have to fight with security guards and police if you want to shop there at 1am in the morning.

That is during the opening hours, beside there is no security guards. It takes a few people to stop me.

Asda have a big sale on.

All GC games reduced to a fiver. Loads of copies of Eternal Darkness (every Cube or Wii owner should play this at least once), Mario Kart Double Dash, Mario Golf and F-Zero GX.

PSP games from a fiver (picked up Taito Legends and Space Invaders - yes, I know its poo but Stu's definitive made me buy it).

PS2 games from £2, I got COmmandos Strike Force for £2 and Driver Paralel Lines for £4.

Quite a few more I'd have bought but even at those prices you have to stop somewhere.

I don't think my Asda has stocked cube for years, but I'll poke my face in on the way to parents tomorrow.

I think there was a pricing cockup at my Asda.

I've just been up again and all the games that were a fiver yesterday are fifteen quid today. Driver: Parallel Lines has jumped from four quid to a tenner.
I did manage to find Just Cause on X-Box for a fiver, but that rang through at fifteen pounds on the till. They let me have it at the cheaper price though.
Wish I'd bought a load of the Mario games to chuck on ebay now.

That's a steal in my opinion. Class game in a class series (except 4...).

Global Defence Force for PS2

£5.99 at Morrisons !!!! got my copy on the 26th July so don't know if they still have it at that price as it's been selling out all over the place.

Reading on Digitiser that it's been up for £50+ on E-bay but not sure how true that is.

if you see it anywhere for less than a tenner it's a top buy as it's a cracking little game and you will be able to flog it for a profit if you get bored with it.......
