    EB: $18? Are you kidding? I was at EB today and they were still charging over $110 for it.

      Mass Effect 2, I meant. My bad.

        I was there the other day and it was 29 on PS3 and 360, you should ask them, might be an old sticker. I picked up MW2 and COD4 as well, it had 49 and 69 on the stickers but COD4 was actually 35 and MW2 was actually 50. They just suck at keeping their stickers up to date it seems.

    is GT5 really worth 98 bucks trade in?

    why? has sony stopped selling it?

      arrrrrrrrrgh this isnt trade thingy :D

    Dude where did you see ME2 for under 20$?

      You can buy ME2 on ps3 for $20 if you get it at some JB hifi stores who have it on offer under their 2 for $40 sale.

    Sony Platinum Double Packs (Resistance, Uncharted and Ratchet & Clank) are all $59
    You should add some of them to the list Mark. All are at JB. Some good deadls there I reckon, might have to pick up something new to play :D

      Thanks mate!

        Was LA Noire for $48 at GAME preowned? Because that seems extremely cheap.. easily worth the price! (Im assuming, I havent actually played LA Noire yet, but ive heard good things!

    Aw man! I can't believe I paid $28 for ME2! What a rip. Should've held out. They'll be giving it away next week at this rate!

    Seriously though, I don't think I've ever seen an A list title discounted like that. Anyone able to shed any light on the situation?

      ME2 came out in January 2010, ME3 comes out early 2012. Seems like some aggressive pricing to get the hold-outs to buy it before ME3 is out. That being said, it's been way under RRP for ages. I got it on PC during the Steam sales over Christmas for $20. I loved it so much that I bought the complete edition on PS3 for $28 from Game online about 2 months back. Was cheaper than buying all the DLC separately on PC. Plus, I want the trophies and an excuse to play it again :)

        I got it for $1 in that GAME trade-in promotion earlier in the year.

    i just called my local GAME shop...Mass Effect 2 is still $38...so I don't see how this is right?

    I really think that you all should cease this nonsense of buying games from EB or GAME and just import from Zavvi.

    Zavvi is god.

    Don't see how these prices are accurate. Need proof of pricing of Call of Duty Black Ops and LA Noire. $49. Preowned maybe? otherwise evidence needs to be provided :D

    I suspect these prices are all second hand, not new?

      Yeah that'd be right. Bloody Australian retailers.

    And in other news... Zavvi/OzGameShop is selling them way cheaper with free shipping :D

    JBHIFi is always the cheapest is it not? But now I alwyas buy (brand new copies) on ebay, cos thats even cheaper

    Perhaps next time you run this sort of article, refrain from using an image for a game you dont actually include in your price list? (twas the reason I opened this article.. yes yes, I am going to buy DNF. Sue me).
