Got ten Xbox 360 titles for $18. Was first in but we have a smallish shop in Blenheim and not many titles, but I got all the $1 ones.

Heaps of titles at my store were all originally priced, thought they were getting rid of the lot so bit sad about that lol.

No mention of this at Manners Street. They still have the $10 and $20 bins but that's it.

My supervisor headed down on her break and managed to score Mass Effect 3 Collectors Edition for Xbox 360 for $10! She didn't realize how much it was worth until I told her

Nothing of interest at the Dunedin CBD store - cheapest game was $10 but nothing for the Xbox I could justify spending the $10-20 on.

The other Dunedin store had lots of $1 games this morning, didn't end up buying any though.

My local one had quite a few $5 xbox games left, but now gone. Still some good titles for $10. I got 6 reasonably good titled games for $40. The $1 bin only had PC online subscription games left. All were originally from $50-$90

Got the Mrs to go down this morning (Whangarei store), she was there at 9am when it opened. One other person waiting. She asked the staff and they said they had no idea. All games were at regular prices.

Twas rather underwhelming really. I hope they will slowly introduce more games into the sale every day. Was hoping they would have cheap PS Vitas. A good Steam sale is ten times better IMO.
