EBGames is having another good sale... lot of PC games dirt cheap  - older titles but some classics.
Unreal series (Unreal, UT and 2 others I think) for $15!

Worth checking out (at Glenfield at least)

EB are pretty good with their sales but new releases are cheaper to get from DSE and if you have a DSE VIP card you get a further 10% off games.

I find with EB games alone they have "sale sign overkill" where it feels like you are walking through a jungle

EBGames have a tendency of doing 50% off sales when they've priced their games at $130.  Walk next door to DSE and you can buy the same game for $60 not on sale.

I also despise how they charge more for second hand games then you can buy new at Mightyape, JB or DSE.

Yes Play Asia is pretty good, especially when the currency is doing so well!

I usually find that DSE is the cheapest, but EB does have the 7 day return policy which is a plus point.

But on the whole im starting to find that EB isn't that great; over pricing, over hyping sales and not even a range of games. It's quite often i would have to search online for a game, usually mightyape.

they often charge more for secondhand games than you can buy new in their own shop.

Nah if that ever happens then it is a mistake. If you talk to them they will generally take a whole five dollars off the brand new price for the second hand POS.

Generous huh?

I agree! Especially bad if you're very tall, forget about head height. They're banging down against my shoulders
