    Just popped into GAME at lunchtime. They had Mercury Revolution for 40 new or 35 second-hand. That's more than Metroid or Super Paper Mario. o_0

    My local GAME had (a few months back) PGR3 new for 19.99 or second hand for 24.99. Didn't realise smudge marks on the disc and coffee rings on the manual were that valuable...

    Trade in Resistance: FOM and GAME will give you a whole
    5 off any other title.
    That's like nearly all the money in the world.

    Oh and they'll sell it pre-owned for 25.

    HMV have realised their error (maybe they read this forum) now down to a reasonable 25.52..

    Clever of them to keep it below the all important 10,000 pricepoint, that would have really put people off.

    Worth it to show off your next-gen controller feature.

    Our local blockbuster had a cracking deal at christmas, trade in any 3 games or movies and get the simpsons movie on dvd for 6.99. Obviously i instantly traded in Halo 3, COD 4 and PGR 4 and picked up my bargain.

    Went in to a second hand game shop here in the Netherlands that seemed to have a good reputation. Biggest rip off central ever. Dreamcast controllers were 25 euros each, that's almost the same price they were new. Tomb Raider games on the PS1 for 15 Euros, they cost about 1p now in the UK, 1000 times cheaper. Dreamcast cames for 30 euros upwards that are available for under a fiver elsewhere. Rez for 70 euros but I realise that's a rare title (still, 70 euros!).

    I've come to realise the UK really is a much much better country for gaming bargains.

    I've seen a few absolutely ridiculous prices on marketplace, such as the Star Wars trilogy on DVD for about 1300 quid. I don't quite get it, maybe they're hoping someone will click on it by mistake and not notice?

    Amazon themselves were selling an xbox game for over a grand new once (Dr. Muto I think), although I put that down to some system error.
