    for the price its worth a go I didn't overly enjoy it but its worth a playthrough or two, its pretty short and sweet game.

    It's unfortunate, but you don't actually have grounds for complaint. Best you can hope for is Play feeling christmassy and goodwilly.

    Yep that's your best bet, simply return it within the seven day cooling down period, and then re-order it.

    I have a friend who manages a well known high street store and it really puts a dampner on his Xmas when obviously not well off people buy presents for people and he knows that if they left it 2 days come the 27th December it would be less the half the price.

    Sometimes they get stuff in stock for Xmas with the intention of it only really selling after at half price in the sales.

    I guess we all know you'll find the same stuff after Xmas a lot cheaper, maybe if we all agreed to move Xmas to the 1st Jan but didn't tell the stores what do you think?

    Good sale. Picked up GRAW (GOTY Edition), Blade Runner on DVD and Call of Cthulhu for XB1. Moto GP was quite tempting as well, will decide on this later.

    No problem, just ordered Tiger Woods 2007 £24.99, I don't think you can get 2006 for that price.

    Rubbish. Some have been cheap a while now (Splinter Cell, PES 6, Wrestling), but the majority of the games listed haven't ever been this cheap.

    The best buys, IMHO, are PES 6, Splinter Cell, COD 2, Condemned, Moto GP 6 and Ghost Recon. All top games, but i have them all...!!

    The only one i don't have but would consider at the price is Top Spin 2. I know many people said it was great so might be worth a gamble, but with PES, and soon to get NBA and NHL2K7 for Christmas, i doubt i'll have time for another sports game so probably won't...

    Some very good deals nonetheless.:smashin:

    If you haven't played the game before, that is unbelievable. It's one of the games of the year, no doubt.

    Seems to have got great reviews - I'm just surprised how quickly it's come down in price!
