    Thumbs up Game bargains thread.

    This thread is long overdue and a few people have suggested it, so here it is.
    No spamming with affiliate links please.

    Some Dick Smith stores are currently discounting games more than their web site states as I discovered today.
    I walked past one store who had 10% off clearance games, so I went in and had a look and found a bargain bin full of 360, Wii and PS2 games and prices were as low as $10.00 before the discount.
    I got a couple of sealed 360 games today for $9.00 each which are advertised at $20.00 and $30.00 on their web site.

    Oooh Dick Smith is just down the road from where I live and they take the new Woolworths Everyday rewards card too

    I'll post whatever bargains I see in there if you like

    Watcher, so this thread doesn't drop off the radar, can it be made a sticky

    No worries Debs. Hopefully it will save someone a few dollars here and there.

    Great idea Watcher.
    I have a friend having a birthday soon, might get some games. Cheap presents, it's the thought that counts. I would look and buy for myself but I only have the Game Cube and DS, but I'll be there to look see.

    Couldn't see the exact details as I was looking over someone's shoulder at work, but I saw the Xbox 360 Arcade console for something like $278.00.
    Not sure about other stuff which they had pictured and the sale would start today at Big W.

    Im not sure if this is totally suitable but when i bought Mass Effect for PC i bought it on ebay from a dude who sells the EA version or something. It doesnt have an autorun, you have to do some file copying and registering with a username and password the seller supplies (you can change it later to your own thang so that you can play online). Once youve installed it, the disc is no longer required. Its legal.
    Anyway, i paid ~$39 for it with $3 dollars delivery. Which i was happy with considering i could of paid in excess of $100, cracked it, and returned the game. With the guilt bugging me, as well as that i wont be able to get it again if i uninstall

    This isn't a bargain of a full release game, but people keen to play Spore when it comes out may be interested.
    The full Spore Creature Creator is available with the Herald Sun and The Saturday Daily Telegraph today and it sounds like it will be in The Courier-Mail on Saturday 30th August 2008.

    I'm not sure about the other papers, but it's definitely $2.00 as well as the cost of the paper here in Melbourne.

    Great Australian website that updates regularly with scans of all gaming-related pages from catalogs such as EB, Toys R Us, Kmart, etc etc

    Dick Smith are having a nuts sale at the moment.

    Picked up, for the PS3 LAIR for $22.50. Reviewed poorly initially due to its controls, but they released a free 250Mb patch that fixed a lot of those problems making it almost an entirely new game. Its a lot of fun so far!!

    Also grabbed another copy of Lair, along with Oblivion ($22.50) and Genji ($27.88) - will trade those at JB or Fallout 3.

    And got Acme Arsenal ($24.88), Viva Pinata party animals ($15) and Kingdom Under Fire ($24.88) for the 360, to trade on Fable 2.

    Will save about $35 all up - happy with that !! Plus I grabbed Tiger Woods 06 ($5) and Everybody's Golf ($9.95) for the PSP for myself to play on the bus to work during the week.

    HARVEY NORMAN in the Brisbane CBD had a few good bargains today - grabbed MADDEN 08 on the PS3 for $25!

    They had a few others for $25 - Kane and Lynch was one, and LAIR was either $20 or $25 as well.

    Dick Smith still have some pretty nuts prices, so if you are clever you can buy some games at Dick Smith's and take them to trade at JB Hifi for some serious savings.

    Note that stock is VERY limited so check the availablility, and some are on JB HIFI's "Exclusion List" (not too many exclusions on the PS3 - but NBA 2K7, The Darkness and The Golden Compass are definitely excluded), but you could end up saving yourself $29 if you are lucky.

    DSE PS3 stuff sorted lowest price to highest

    DSE 360 stuff sorted lowest price to highest

    JB HIFI Trade in offer Exclusion List

    The XBox 360 exclusion list is pretty exhaustive, but some things at stupid prices are not excluded - potentially if you could score Bionicle Heroes for $5, Battlefield 2 for $10 and Burnout Revenge for $15, trade them at JB for FALLOUT 3 and you could save yourself $59

    Anyway, hope this info is helpful to some of you.

    My local 2 in the city unfortunately have sweet FA. So I'll just go down to my local JB and grab Fallout 3 for $89 on 360. If it doesn't work on my console due it to being PAL region locked, I'll trade it into JB for $104.50 with the edge card and score some other region free title like Fable II instead.

    A store near me has a few - tempted to pop out on the weekend to snaffle them and then use them to get Dead Space

    Just a heads up about my previous post. It appears that JB has updated their exclusion list, and now excluded some of the cheaper 360 games available at Dick Smith (such as Bionicle Heroes).

    I did it

    Step 1 - exit work at lunchtime and walk to Dick Smith
    Step 2 - purchase World Series Poker, Dark Messiah Elements of might & magic, and Turning Point for the 360 for $20
    Step 3 - take games without unwrapping them to JB Hifi and trade them for DEAD SPACE
    Step 4 - exit store grinning having saved myself $19

    Goin to buy a PS3 next week. Was originally goin to go to Dick Smith and get one for $688, but then i thought about goin to EB and trading in my PS2, 2 controllers and 4 games and hopefully gettin a lower price. Went to EB to ask them about it and the only information i extracted out was that 4 PS2 games will get you a secondhand PS3 game

    Sony have a deal atm that if you buy a PS3 you get a free game (theres a select list, but theyre actually not half bad) so i wont be looking to buy a game with the console unless i grab a secondhand one with the 4 games i trade in.
    Originally planned to get: console, game, controller + blu-ray remote. But certain events have drained me of money so im being a real tight ass. Mind you, im borrowing 200 just to get the console

    What do you think will be the best way to acquire a PS3?

    Went to EB first to see why sort of deal they could do for me. They gave me peanuts for the PS2 but gave me dis**** on a few items so i thought it worked out really well.

    So for: PS3, HDMI cables, Little Big Planet, Fallout 3 - cast $727
