Is it me or are preowned Xbox Games really cheap nowadays?

I've had a mini spending spree lately on cheap Xbox games. Last Thursday I bought XIII in Gamestation for the princely sum of £2.99, and today I went into GAME and bought Timesplitters 2 and Hitman 2 for £5 (for both!). GAME have an offer on at the momenet (which wasn't visibly advertised – at least not in the store at Middlebrook, Bolton), where you can get two £3.97 preowned games for £5. I had only originally intended to buy Hitman 2, until the assistant told me about the offer. There is also a similar offer where you can get two £12.97 games for £20 (and I assume similar for other prices too). It all brings back memories of the dying days of the Dreamcast (RIP), when I expanded my collection to just shy of 40 games after they all went mega-cheap.

At least it looks like I won't be needing to invest in a 360 just yet (but I do really want PGR3!)

On another note, being back at Tesco (this time on the Deli) hasn't been so bad. I did an 8–5 yesterday and a 7–4 today (although my contracted hours are 9–6 for both), and I'm next in on overtime 9–6 on Friday.

    Well, I was gonna buy Polarium for the DS pre-owned for the sum of £9.99. That was, until I saw a new version was on the shelf at £9.97. Heh heh! I didn't get it new or used in the end. The DS is a weird console, I recognise that it has many great games but I just don't want to get any… Odd.

    Now, ICO, you must play that game at some point. Pardon my French, but it's a bloody marvellous game. You can get it mega-cheap if you look hard enough!

    Seems that I've not spoken to you in a while, how's things been?

  3. The GAME at Middlebrook hasn't been there very long – I only realised it was there when I went on Monday. It's in the unit that was previously occupied by Time (across the road from ASDA).
