Hey, very good prices but i think someone has already posted. Heat added anyway :)

I was in Borders Book store in Glasgow other day - and to be honest even with their 20/30/40% discount on books - they are still way over priced - and thats why they are shutting always way too expensive.

The game section in that Borders never had much in the way of bargains either.
#3
I searched borders for deals, are you referring to this

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/508037/game-pre-owned-price-drop-xbox-360?page=2

Does this mean the prices have nothing to do with borders closing down and its just a co-incidence?

edit: ah that post is over a month ago so my re-post is valid anyway. Besides they are even cheaper now so a hotter deal.

Can anyone confirm if the £2.50 -£3 price range for the pre-owned games is borders Game only or all Games
#4
I reckon its just going to be the Game branches that are inside the Borders bookstores.........

The one in Bournemouth had the following:


Resident Evil 4 (Wii) £3.98
Far Cry (360) (as mentioned above)
Nights (Wii) £2.98
Various Tiger Woods games (360) (up to 08 I believe) £3.98
Moto GP 06 £2.98

They also had Prom Night and What Happens in Vegas for £3.98 on Blu Ray.


Popped up to the other Game store, up the road (outside of Borders), and indeed, these
deals are nowhere to be found.

Very happy with Resident Evil 4, couldn't ask for a better game for under a fiver.
#6
went to the team valley, Gateshead branch, can confirm this all, gr8 deal
#7
Far cry 2 £2.98? That sounds like I should finally give that game a go!

I am guessing from your pic you are from Swansea, they had quite a few of them left at about 4:30pm today.

Yeh I am in Swansea. May go look tomorrow. By the way its not Borders, it's Game really. The Borders is closing down and is reducing but Game is still separate, much like Paperchase I believe. :)

Ye I know but it's only the game stores IN borders so a bit hard to categorise.

Did they have the tiger woods driving game at all? ..no, not golf driving!
#14
That's the worst Tiger Woods joke i've heard yet!

The Dundee shop had all of the ones mentioned previously and also Tiger Woods 09, Wall E and Star Wars Unleashed on the Wii for 3.98 each. They also had several UMDs for 48p and I picked up Madden 07 for 98p on the Xbox 360.
#15
Nothing to be had in the York branch. :(
#16
Nothing of note in the Leeds branch. Although I've noticed the other GAME stores in the city now have an OPEN/CLOSED sign saying 'We're Closed, Did you know there's a GAME in Borders open until late?'

A bit late, indeed.

How peculiar; I've owned both these games since release, and enjoyed Prey far more than Far Cry 2.
While nothing spectacular, Prey did have innovative features (portals, localized gravity, phase walking) that made new puzzles possible.
Obviously Far Cry 2 is graphically superior, but I found it's gameplay mechanics extremely repetitive, it's missions unimaginative & shallow, and the story uninteresting - so much so I got bored long before finishing the game.
If it makes a difference, I'm comparing the PC versions.

I don't think it does really. Just regular GAME branches are trying to clear their pre-owned stuff too so the last thing they want is an influx of even more pre-owned stuff. Obviously the GAME stores inside borders are going to close so it makes sense to try to clear out old unwanted stock

As for the regular current stock though the other GAME stores will have no problem taking that.

Went into Huddersfield Game and the guy said this offer was on 3 weeks ago and is no longer on. I always found Game to be poor on pricing, even compared with Gamestation.
