    As per thread...
    I can only afford to get one (and spend the time playing it!) So which one, and where to get it? I gather Tesco migh tbe cheapest, but I'm loath to spend money with them, but if anyone can confirm the price, then I can get GS or Game to match it hopefully...

    So, best prices? Oh, and don't just say 'tesco..' say which one too!
    Cheers!

    How much at argos?

    Oh, and I know prices have been discussed elsewhere, but I didn't fancy trawling through multiple page threads to find the 5 or 6 posts that have price info! Hence I started a new one just for prices...:hiya:

    I read yesterday than 1 of every £8 spent in Britain goes to Tesco.

    Please dont shop at Tesco.

    Er why not?

    They are the biggest 'cos they are the best.

    This inverse snobbery of preferring a slightly less successful multi-million pound corporation over a slightly more successful multi-million pound corporation leaves me non-plussed.

    I'm off to buy both titles from Tesco now.

    I also read that Tescos are now the fourth biggest retailer in the world.

    Just think- with our support they could become the biggest.

    Support British Business.

    Please buy at Tesco.

    I normally go with price and convenience. If you're at Tesco's and its cheap just buy it.

    Would like to know the answer to this too because my nephew has been saving his pocket money ever since xmas so he can get another 360 controller but if I can pickup Ghost Recon and a controller for £45 then I will and save him from spending £30 on an official one.

    All that money you save by not having to pay for car loans, petrol, road tax and MOT should offset the extra you have to pay at your local shop:devil:

    IMO, Morrissons is the best by far - no brand loyalty, just plenty of buy one get one free offers! YAY!

    Just checked with Gamestation HO, and they will price match any store within 3 miles... So if you have a Tesco nearby, but don't want to buy it htere, at least GS will price match :thumbsup:

    I've just picked up GRAW at Toysrus on Teesside for £39.99 inc a very nice Joytech Neo se controller. It was displayed at £44.97 but rang through the till cheaper so overall it's probalbly the best deal I've seen so far.

    At £45 they are not the cheapest. In Tesco both GRAW and FN3 are £39.97.

    Buy games from game and electronic shops, buy clothes from clothes shops, buy magazines and papers from newsagents and convenience stores.

    Don't be a sheep and buy the above from supermarkets, the more dominant they become the more you are helping to destroy independent businesses and any uniqueness left in our high streets.

    I am about as capitalist as anyone can get, and love the free market lifestyle, but by killing independents and smaller chains you are killing choice and competition, and when competition disappears the monopolist will put up prices.

    This already happens in much of Scotland, where Tescos alread have a complete monopoly in large parts of the country, and prices are as much as 1.5 times the amount of town centre Tescos in England, and petrol prices also much much higher. This is what will happen to England if you continue to use them as your one stop shop.

    When a cursory investigation by OUT (Office of Unfair Trading) was concluded, they bought the bullsh*t Tescos gave them that prices were higher in Scotland because of Distribution costs, this is the despite the fact that a huge amount of their goods come in from the North Sea anyway, including most oil, and half of Scotland is made up of Farmland...

    Not to mention half the reason some of their prices appear cheap is because they force their suppliers to supply them at a certain cost, and threaten to take contracts elsewhere if demands are not met. This leaves many farmers doing a bloody hard job yet being left close to the poverty line.

    They also have many cunning tactics to deceive buyers. For a couple of simple examples, it's common practice to have very low prices on KVI (known value items) to create the illusion they are cheap, but these low prices are made back in triple by having disproportionately high prices for everything else.

    And who likes beer? Next time you go into a Tescos, pick up a can of Stella, Kronenbourg or almost any other beer they stock, then realise the can size is 440ml. Off licences and independents sell 500ml cans, the way it has always been, yet another devious tactic of Tescos and some other supermarkets has been to force British breweries to supply them the most popular beers in 440ml cans, cutting their costs even more yet they continue to sell them at 500ml prices.

    Still think you're getting a good deal?

    It's not for me to tell you where to shop, but just keep in mind you are only stabbing yourself in the back in the long run.

    P.S. For any smart alecs yes I know it's really the OFT, but they are so deep in the pockets of major corporations anyway that they never do anything to promote fair competition.

    Tesco are horrendous mate. They are putting small businesses, farmers, growers, suppliers etc out of business all over the place.

    Buy at your local (if it isn't closed down) fruit and veg and butchers. It will be cheaper, taste better and won't have been imported from Tanzania. Having said that my local butchers don't sell xbox 360 games! :D
