Good prices for GonD, but again, I've seen them all cheaper before.

Yes it's just one day for these. Borrow a mate or relatives credit card, you owe it to your gaming existence!

I know it's a recession and all, but unless you're going to buy them all surely you can afford a few games that are under £3!!!

Wait, so you don't know when you're going to be paid, also you can't possibly have spent everything up to your last couple of quid I'm not an expert but even I know that's not a sound fiscal strategy. :o

A couple of these games need the Xbox Live Vision Camera (UNO porn) to get all the achievements, do a little bit of research before paying!

Brand new? GoTY editions would be nice, the dlc would cost more than the games. Might have to give GRAW a punt though, that's not to be sniffed at.
It's all in the game...

Nope, but cheaper none the less. Plus you have something physical that can be traded for a return.

I don't usually get pre-owned games, but as I'd previously owned these and just wanted them mop up achievements I missed the first time round, I made an allowance. I got the GRAW games & Rainbow Six Vegas for £1.99 each (£2.69 each in the sale), plus The Darkness for £1.99 (£4.49 in the sale) and that was probably a year ago now.

I did just buy Dark Messiah on Ed's recommendation, though.

Just bought Call of Juarez for £2 following the same logic I did buying Conan last year, if we all buy the GoD when they are really cheap MS will get the hint that lower prices are good. Who knows I may even play it at some point.
