Beesty, nobody's intentionally hainga go becaus eyour english is bad. That last response was fine. Not grammatically perfect, but it reads well enough to make sense.

Unlike your first post which is somewhat random, presumably stream of consciousness with little thought given.

Your last post proves you can do it when you try.

I don't believe they're taking advantage of anyone. As we've pointed out several times in the case of the PSP, it's Sony trying to take advantage of you if anyone.

And if you don't believe that horrific grammar and spelling does a long way towards invalidating any point you may have then I can't help you further.

You might have a wire crossed here, Beesty.

We were originally discussing the Xbox 360, and I mentioned earlier in the post that Sony were also doing the 'forced bundle' trick; selling their PSP Giga pack with 2 rather mediocre games that nobody would choose.

Dudley was following on from my point, and he's right; Sony are certainly doing a bumrape on the consumer with their bundle packs. I could be wrong, but my understanding is that it is SCEE forcing the bundle to the retailers, and not the retailers forcing it.

Kudos to Game, though. I got my 360 at launch and I was free to choose any games I wanted; no forcing at all.

Fair point,but i got a psp on launch day and i didnt have to buy it as a pack,i got mine from hmv,but I chose a pack as u could choose your game of choice.The pack from game had the usuall games that no-one wanted,wish I had my 360 though,i really wanted to play PGR3(even played 2 for a few hours yesterday).
And on the dudders front,i will just have to bite my toungue i guess unless he constantly rubs me up the wrong way
But i think Game has got too big for its own good now and even though they do games of the week and so on,you can get the games cheaper at supermarkets and other retailers now as they are trying to sell the game for a small profit on top of there food profits.
where Game is just there to sell games and make a profit.

Its hardly news though. Game has been consistently priced higher than its competitors for so many things over the last couple of years. Even their pre-owned stock is more expensive. Of all the major retailers, dedicated or not, Game usually offer the worst deal imho.

Actually the supermarkets lose money on games. And only take big titles. It's actually quite a big danger to the games industry or certainly the fate of non-blockbuster titles as these would never get stocked without the specialist retailers.
