Cheapskate Gamer

Yep, it’s that time of the year again. The time when games start coming out again. The time when your wallet is only just starting to recover from the Christmas Sales induced mental trauma…

Anyway, this week sees the return of the New Releases section (for obvious reasons). \o/

The In Store prices are off the retailer’s websites, so if they’ve gone and decided to change the price in the stores, blame them. Or you could just blame me. Either way, I don’t mind.*

*I do mind.**

**No I don't.

    Harvey Norman DI is cheaper than Ozgameshop for Metal Gear HD collection? What is this madness?

      That's factoring in the shipping cost too! D:

        Wow, that is a real nice price for 3 games in 1.

        I'm absolutely flabbergasted... That's the only word for it...

        Just think: If the shipping times were better (OGS has been fantastic lately), I would actually buy something from HN... who'd've thought?

      beware that MGS HD collection isnt all the MGS games, there's story elements missing from the games missing.

        Well, it is

        Metal Gear Solid 2
        Metal Gear Solid 3
        Metal Gear Peace Walker

        I'd rather pay more and wait longer than give my money to HN

    L.A. Noire for $24? I was at the mall earlier looking at games, pet store critters and food court related foods (productive day all round. :P) and saw it for $70 bucks on shelves in a couple of stores. Odd.

      I paid 12.50 for it during the Steam sale, well worth it!

    I think Saints Row is $36.99 on PS3, yo.

      yeah I just checked this, $26 is a great price, $36 still decent, but not quite the same, currently $36.99 on OzGs

        Thanks for pointing that out guys. My finger's appear to be conspiring against me. I shall keep a closer eye on them from now on. :P

    "Xbox 360 Online – $39.00
    Xbox 360 In Store – $69.00"

    Hahahahaha aha ahahahahah AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH

    Thanks for listing the microsoft deal of the week for 360!

    You can get call of juarez the cartel for 18.99 on xbox and ps3 at ozgameshop. ;)

      Eye's, why did u no see that?? ლ(ಠ益ಠლ)
      :P

        My eyes! They must be in chaoots with my fingers! D:

          *cahoots
          Gah, my fingers! They did it again! :P

            Lambo, after all the bargains you've given us you could probably murder a few people and stiil be in the good books. :D

    Bastion is showing as 1200 points via the Xbox Marketplace website. Worth it anyway?

      Should be 600 points. I bought it for that last night. I think the deal lasts until 6 Feb.

        Hmmm. Cheers for the heads up; maybe it needs to be purchased from the dashboard? I'll check it out when I get home. :)

          I think I read on Talk Amongst Yourselves that the discount price only applies if you're a gold member unfortunately.

            What this guy said, it's gold only, you can buy it online or via the dashboard (I bought it online yesterday).

    Gears of War 3 for $27: http://www.ozgameshop.com/xbox-360-games/gears-of-war-3-game-it-bundle-copy-xbox-360

      "This is a brand new full official version of the Game that has been split from part of an Italian bundle. The game has Italian packaging and manual but plays in Full English."

    The mobile kotaku isn't letting me open the comments...

    Anyway, just wanted to pop in here with the 3DS + circle pad pro + RE:Revelations bundle for $239. Pretty hot stuff for fence sitters (like me).

    Thanks for taking the time to do these, always enjoy just checking out prices.

    crap....i just paid $90 for my arkham city - collector's edition :(
