  • GAME – Dead Island $98 (Preorder = Free Afterglow Controller)

    Pretty decent offer.

    As for *Instore* deals GAME are smashing it.
    JB and EB Used to be cheaper, But seem to be loosing their reigns lately.

    • Yep, I preordered this yesterday and traded some games towards it.

      GAME are currently doing +55% trade value towards preorders too, so I got $54 for Duke Nukem towards Dead Island.

  • $80 for Deus Ex PC edition?
    I just preordered the Augmented Edition last night from Ozgameshop for $50…
    (which includes art book, sound track, extra DVD, extra mission and all these in game items)

  • Interesting. Now I’ll just wait for the first week of release and pick up any and all of the new releases for 64 – 78 bucks from either JB or GAME seeing as they ALWAYS do it now…

  • It’d be interesting to see an analysis of the additional price console owners pay to the platform manufacturor for each and every game they buy. The figures above suggest it’s $10-$20 each game.

    • its currently 50 USD, same as the US, so get it while you can.

      Also Red orchastra 2 is on steam for 35 USD, and there is a current low voilence problem, but its not confirmed just valve putting there until they can remove it, but if dead island doesn’t then red orchastra 2 wont.

      Also is it me but are SCE titles getting cheaper?, my guess is SONY is the only one trying to reduce retail price here in Australia, Infamous 2 was 79 dollars, 30 dollars less than RRP. And resistance is the same.

  • Sykim and Rage preorders on Steam have added the $30USD tax for the Australian Store! just farkin’ incrediable!
