    As it says, I picked one up a couple of days ago in Bracknell,
    I thought it was a mistake, but they had another in today!
    They gave me 20% off and it actually cost me 1.56.
    Not sure if this is Nationwide.
    They had some memory packs in but these were not greatly
    reduced.
    Azzo.
    PS this is the official one and the only one to get!

    I'll see if they have one in tomorrow lunch.
    If so I'll buy it. Don't know if they'll give me the 20% off.

    You are a very lucky man. Go an buy a lottery ticket.
    I managed to get the last one for 1.97.
    It feels kinda heavy and bulky. Not sure if it will fit
    in a standard post box. Will you be able to stretch
    to £5 + postage. (It doesn't leave much room for all my
    efforts when you take into account paypal charges as well)
    BTW Dixons tell me that they will be disconinuing games for
    all formats soon. Will look foward to getting cut price games!
    Azzo.

    PS Went to Dixons in London today and they had no offers on!

    I have looked at these.
    I am confused?
    Rouge Squadran 9.99?
    MOH 11.39?
    Luigis Mansion 9.99?
    None in stock,
    but if you look then they have them advertised at full price as well. Also the catalogue codes for Luigis is GCPSM1 this
    does not look like a game (the full price cat no is 1620046)
    Could the cheaper prices not be games!
    Similarly Rougue cat no is TCUBE1, MOH looks ok though.
    What is going on?

    To be honest Im not sure, I bought Mario Party and Micky mouse games, got mickey mouse next day. Still to received Mario party as its out of stock.

    I assumed they were maybe clearing cube stuff as they were maybe going to stop stocking it.

    Yep, it looks like all the mainstream distributers are clearing
    shelves. (Dixons for one).
    Is there a future to the Cube?
    A shame if not, its a bloody good machine

    Yes many large retailers are no longer stocking it, not all bad there may be more bargains like the scart to hunt down.

    There some great games getting released though, desperate to get my hands on mario kart.

    So I would say the cube has a fduture, but it aint winning no console war, the x-box is just far to powerful a machine for it to compete..

    Yes, but why get an Xbox when you have got a PC.
    I can't stand PC games anyway, and a lot of XBox stuff
    looks very similary.
    I will be sticking with my GC and PS2 for now.
    Azzo.

    X-box live is a very good reason to get an X-Box. I have had a PS2 and have an x-box and cube and think they are all great. :)

    x-box live seems like a rip-off
    you are paying for a subscription service and playing games for the most part that are on PC. it seems silly. Just get a decent (£150+) graphics card i say
