Right, so let's make this the official place to express our joy upon finding a great hobo grab.  We all do it.  And it always feels good.  Nothing beats a good bargain LOL

I'll start off by showing you guys what I ordered the other day for the measly sum of £30 (49 USD according to my trusted currency converter) including postage ...

This:



plus this:



how awesome?

Well most recently I'm still overjoyed that I was able to get Batman AA for $39 Canadian. This is a game where I would have easily paid the usual retail price of $70 for it. Thanks to Walmart though. Some other places around me matched their price but I also saw some stores charging the regular price. Infinite Discovery at $20 and The Last Remnant for $35 were a couple of other good deals I got recently as well. TLR was actually a misprice by Walmart because everywhere else it was $45 and when it was scanned at the checkout it rang up as $45 but the sticker said $35 so that's what I paid for it. Went in later and noticed they fixed the prices back for it.

My most recent crazy deal was getting Namco Museum Virtual Arcade (Xbox 360) for $13 brand new at Gamestop last Spring. At that time, most other stores were selling it for $30.

I think I already expressed my little nerdy glee before on this, but my most recent deal was finding Valkyrie Profile Covenant of the Plume for the DS at Frys for $17! This game is still $39.99 at Best Buy and Gamestop too!

I also picked up Tomb Raider Underworld for the 360 for $15 on the same day.

for some reason this time they charged 0 for postage.  normally it's about a pound per item for european postage.  not sure how much it is to send to australia but it will definitely tell you before check out

definitely.  and resistance 2 is now platinum so it's not much lower than its RRP.  disgaea on the other hand will disappear before it gets any cheaper than that, and it will never get a platinum release

Found Blue Dragon Plus for $12 at Frys this morning.

I know it's not the best of the DS RPGs, or SRPGs...but I couldn't resist the price.

Frys really has good deals going on!

Just thought I bump this thread and share my excitement with a new deal I got!

Just found Patapon 2 for a measly $5 today. I think this tops my best deal of the year!

totally, what a steal!  so did you buy the empty box with the download code, or just the download?

i bought killzone 2 for £15 as it's now been released in the platinum/greatest hits range.  i only want it for the single player so i think that is a fair price for it.  this is what i intend to do with most all ps3 blockbusters.  yep  i will be getting uncharted 2 and the new ratchet and clank in a few short months for the third of the price which dvader is about to pay Nyaa

I picked up the PC version of Fallout 3 for half of what it normally goes for. Sure, I should've waited to get the GOTY edition...but I didn't want to wait any longer.

you know you are a hobo ... when you see a game so cheap that you just cannot pass it up even if  you have valid reasons to think it may just not be for you.

with the exception of chinatown wars on the DS i have not really enjoyed any of the so called "sandbox games" much.  however when i saw



for a measly £10, i just couldn't ignore all those 9/10 reviews and what not.  if it has a good hiphop soundtrack to boot, it'll be worth the ten quid for that alone
