Bargain Hunter: Let's Look At The New Big W Catalogue

Hey, Big W has got a new catalogue out for the month of June. Let's take a look at it!

Yes, let's!

Anthony over at Ecogamer alerted us to the new catalogue. You can look at it in pictures over on his site or scan the list below.

There's a bunch of relatively old games going for under thirty bucks: the best of which is probably GTA IV for $28.84 and a swathe of PS3 exclusives for just $19.84. UPDATE: The latter are only that price when you purchase a DualShock 3 controller. I should learn to read.

Other decent deals are Bayonetta for $48.84 and Blur for $58.84.

    "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (360, PS3) $98"

    ...and thats on special? How much is it normally?


      Hey, I never said they were all bargains!

        Heading needs to be renamed to "Average price hunter"

          oh stfu, there's some bargains here

          Your user name neededs to be renamed to "ANALEE"

            Sorry, I must have missed pressing the sarcasm button.

              All right, I will explain myself here. No sarcasm... just why I bawked at the price. It has nothing to do with Kotaku, or Big W. I am not sure who calls the shots on game prices but charging $98.00 for a title that has been out for more than half a year is ridiculous!

              If it is Infinity Ward setting the cost, then it just goes to show how greedy they can be. The game was a huge cash cow having broken so many video game records that I thought by now they would have had a bit of a cash buffer there to reduce the RRP of the game.

              Granted, most people who are interested in the game would have it already. But those people teetering on the decision to make that purchase aren't being tempted in anyway by paying a premium for a game that has been out for as long as MW2.

                LOL - it's ok lee - don't panic - we're not serious either :P... well at least i'm not...

                MW2 is just one of those games i guess.. wanna hug?! :D

                  I would prefer to spoon... only if I can be the big spoon though.

                Right, let's clear up a few things.

                1. Infinity Ward develops the game. Activision is the publisher and so they're responsible for selling the game into retail. Activision sets the cost price that retail pays per unit. Activision also advises a "recommended retail price".

                2. The regular edition Modern Warfare 2 carried an RRP of $119.95 at launch. For argument's sake, let's say that cost price was $80 per unit.

                3. There are essentially three reasons why a retailer sells a game below its launch RRP:
                * To gain a competitive advantage, ie. marking it down $10-20 to encourage customers to its store.
                * The retailer has bought new stock at a lower cost price, thus they retain their profit margin on a lower sale price, ie. the title has moved into a Classics or Platinum range.
                * The game isn't selling and the retailer needs to get rid of excess stock.

                Modern Warfare 2 is clearly still selling at its original RRP. Why would Activision or a retailer choose to drastically reduce its price?

                  Roger that. Thanks for clarifying who sets the RRP.

                  It is still crazy to think that the price is sitting around $100 for a game that has been on the shelf since November 09. I would think that the sales would be slowing down dramatically after the first 3 months as so many people got it.

                  But then again, the PS2 is still selling well. Anyway... back to my corner now. As you were...

      Anyone who actually pays for that garbage deserves to get ripped off.

    Well that was disappointing. inFamous is $20 when you buy a $100 dualshock.

      infamous 28 bucks used at JB hifi

    I keep hoping to see A Boy & His Blob on sale, or even just for sale. Also, I got the prices mixed up between SFIV & SSFIV and my jaw hit the ground.

      A Boy and His Blob is currently retailing for $20 new in America. I bought it when I was there a month ago. It has a hug button. A HUG BUTTON

      Is there anything for the Wii like the Freeloader for Gamecube? If so, you can bypass our horrible, stupid prices and buy online from the US.

      I saw it in Kmart for $30 - a bargain if I didn't already have it from that old Kotaku competition :)

    the 19.84 ps3 games, you have to purchase a ds3 controller to get them at that price

    All-Star Cheerleader 2 (Wii) $28.84

    definitely that.

    hey f3 goty is 60 bucks here! :D Cheapest I've seen Boy and His Blob, but I'm waiting on a restock before they ship it.

    EB has DS3's for $79 atm, noticed it in their cabinet when i was in yesterday.

    kinda sucks that u have to buy a DS3 for those prices...

    blur is crazy cheap... shame i've already imported (awaiting delivery) and paid more :(

    Blur is really cheap - i might look into getting it but i already planned to get Split/Second for my racing needs - hmm decisions. Also i like the look of some of the cheaper games at $28 such as Wet - i have always wanted to play it even though i heard it was average.

    yeah... Blur for $58 is damn tempting...

    yeh.. Blur is stupidly tempting at that price... but i REALLY need to conserve the last of my b'day money to put towards transformers.... *weeps*


    Big W aren't big on PC games.

    Its good to see the Sega Mega Drive Collection starting to reflect what it is actually worth (minus the $28 and some cents)

      You're kidding, right? Are you really saying that 51 damn good classic games are not worth the asking price? Sure, the lack of Lock-On for the Sonic titles is pretty poor form, but otherwise this is a fantastic package.

    Woah. Blur wasn't on my radar at all, but for under $60 a couple weeks after release? That's amazing.

    Note to self - make a trip to Big W and pick up Blur.

    Not that I can afford it, but I'm already saving $50 on what I expected to pay for Green Day Rock Band, so I might get it anyway.

    between this and eb theres a lot of good bargins in june. probably wont buy any but ive never played a fighting game, maybe SSFIV.

    might import rock band 2

    oh my GOD.

    Blur is Cheapp!!!

    $58 for fallout 3 GOTY edition isn't bad either.
