Seems like almost all posts are voted cold these days?

Not that I think it makes any difference, but for people to vote cold on a 1p item? WTF!
#2
still play this on my xbox! its an ok game, but for the price... its ****in awesome
#3
i just cant see PC world selling a game for 1p, it would cost them more than that for the staff to sell it and put it through the till.

These old xbox games have essentially been written off now. So they either get thrown in the bin, or a happy customer can have it for 1p.
#5
Also a point to note, If you do have a 360 this game doesn't seem to be on the compatibility list on the xbox website. a shame really.

Shame this offers not online. You could've got £0.00025 back from Quidco - which would be interesting!

if you dont belive me i will try and scan receipt in full( i paid cash lol) for you to see if i get my £25 canon printer to work under vista! last year i got 12 months xbox live for 47 p in pc world so these bargains do exist , perhaps not in every store, like i said in my post,not much xbox stuff left in pc world now but you never know your luck,cant believe some clown voted this cold.


I can certainly believe it as i got an xbox game of them a couple of years back for 1p, it was a double disc with sega gt, and jet set radio....though on that occassion you could reserve online for collection.
The reason someone has voted cold is probably due to availability issues.
You have to evaluate a hot deal with price and availabilty..... what's the point of a hot deal if only 1 person has got it?
#8
HOT even though it's old and ****... 1p people! LOL - someone else might find a copy out there.... on another planet maybe?!

Thats not really true, you could argue that you aren't allow to ask till staff what time the store closes, because it would be a waste of time and money telling you...

What if the till assistant is just sat there bored? Might as well be selling you a 1p game! The occasional crazy sale price like this is good for stores because it creates word of mouth.

Maybe they are hoping you take out a 5 year warrenty on it for £799 :)

worto.

Heat added
#12
Good find. Xbox has loads of excellent games that still look good.
I am working my way through the awesome Half Life 2
#13
Heat added - but not available locally for me- great spot though.
#14
The way they see it, one last xbox game is making the display look untidy. They cant chuck it in the back and hope it rots and they cant give it away so 1p is the next best thing. Nice find, heat and rep added.
#15
Bargain...

Have you played it? probably not, yeah its 2 and a half years old but it got good reviews and plays well,what you people want for 1p FFS lol, get off yer buttt and check your local pc world, dont use reserve and collect as anything under 3 in quantity doesnt register :-D


Yes, I have and it's a bad game - old too. lol. like I said, good for 1p... worth that for the box if you need a replacement for a damaged box or something.

yeah your right , the reviews are wrong lol at least i know who voted cold lol


I voted HOT lol, I don't think you can read! Reviews say a lot fo things are good when they're not - you need to get experience of a lot better games!

Bargain, good find although I doubt I'll be as lucky...

Good spot, I had a look in Hereford PC World on Friday and they didn't have any XBOX games left - lot of PC games at very good prices but sadly no Mac games on special, they're still touting an old copy of 'The Sims' for £34.99!

I use my XBOX largely as a 'noisy' DVD player but it is still an excellent console, particularly those of us who have come through from the ZX80 generation! I'm a Mac man these days but still have a very soft spot for the Commodore Amiga. Played on my Cousins Nintendo Wii and it took me back to the old days when gameplay was king and the games were great fun to play - don't really have an interest in PS3 or XBOX 360.

It's amazing looking at the fickle nature of consoles these days and the second hand prices for XBOX's are bizarre, keep hold of it if you've still got it and pull it out and enjoy it once in a while - though if someone what's to swap mine for a Wii I might consider it! :-D

DSGi staff member here to clear things up. The rules are that if a product hits £0.01 it should be sent back to HO or some distribution centre. Whenever we find stuff in the warehouse or games room that has been sitting around for ages the prices will have dropped significantly on them, and yes sometimes all the way to 1p. We're not allowed to buy anything at the price of 1p, and our manager will always override the price up to 47p. Items at 1p shouldn't necessarily be sold, depends on where you go and who serves you.

A year or so ago, thanks to a heads up over at the MSE forum, I got from PCWorld Merry Hill for 1p a copy of Jet Set radio Future/Sega GT double pack for the Xbox. Reserved it online, paid my penny in store no questions asked, just a laugh at the cost.
#24
Oh yeah definately not impossible to pick things up at that price, but technically the member of staff shouldn't. However, you're unlikely to find anyone picky enough to not sell it.
#25

you voted hot but you think the game is **** and only worth 1p for the case ? you are well messed up then
Whats messed up about that? A replacement case would cost more than 1p, so it's a good deal if someone wants a new case. that makes it hot.

The game itself is bland, boring and generic, but who can resist a 1p green case? ;~~

lol,yeah all game reviews lie
Yep, now you realise. look at kane & lynch / gamespot. publishing company PR people put lots of adverts the way of magazines, send lots of free stuff and they expect something in return.

like halo 3 is c rap isnt it lol

I wouldn't say **** but it's hardly an example of a brilliant game. you could easily replace the 3 with a 1 or 2.

So I've discovered.

you talk as much xxxx as jakenjo, hang on you are jakenjo under a different user name?
The drugs are obviously making you paranoid, I'd stay off them if I were you.

Maybe it's all those alien nerd games you are playing that makes you paranoid, they aren't really out to get you you know.
