More budget delights for the warm summer months

The Sold Out budget label received another boost today with the news of six new titles for July, including Tomb Raider 3 and Thief 2. Joining the illustrious ranks of the £4.99 budget label - currently swollen by the likes of Worms 2 and Homeworld - are three games each from publishing giants Codemasters and Eidos, and there's not a duffer among 'em. Leading the way are TOCA 2 (soon to be sequestered from full-price sale anyway by its long-awaited sequel) and Tomb Raider 3 (to put it into the perspective the series has lost, that's the middle title of five currently on the market) - both excellent games, and both more than deserving of your five-pounds-minus-one-pence. Elsewhere, Codemasters also contributes the underrated Severance: Blades of Darkness and online driving doobrie 1nsane, but the real gems come on Eidos' side, with Championship Manager 99/00 joining the £4.99 array along with Thief 2. Now shipping in conventional DVD cases, these titles - available from July - will slot nicely into the gaps in your collection. If we didn't already own them, we'd be tempted to buy more than one.
