Long time reader, first time poster - go easy on me.

Granger Games currently have Far Cry 2 as their Deal of the Week for £5

Game currently have an offer whereby if you trade in Far Cry 2 (or GTA IV or Battlefield Bad Company or Splinter Cell Double Agent), you can get the COD:MW2 Resugence Pack for 99p. More info here hotukdeals.com/ite…nts

(For anyone unfamilar the resurgence pack is basically 1200 Microsoft point you credit onto your account with the intention of purchasing the DLC of the same name, though it can be used for anything - this typically fetches £9.99).

So I just picked up a 2nd hand copy of Far Cry 2 for £5 from Granger Games, walked outside, took the price stickers off, then walked 50 yards down the road to Game where I traded it in and paid 99p for 1200 Microsoft Points!

These were both in my local Redcar branches, I'm unsure if it's nationwide or not, and I believe the offer runs until the 17th of June.

I don't have a cex near me, but according to their website, you can buy Far Cry 2 for £8, so I suppose you could do it this way, but you're only saving £1

Thanks for confirming the titles for me, I'll edit the post.

EDIT: Just done a quick search, yes the Game deal has been posted before, but this post tells you how to obtain the 1200 points cheaply if you don't want to actually part with your games, also included this in the original post.

The CEX site is listing Far Cry 2 as £8.00 not £5.00

Well done for posting but the deal is the trade in - otherwise you would need to post Far Cry 2 at £5 as its own deal.

Example if I find a store with Double Agent for £4 I wouldnt re-post the Game piece I'd either post the Double Agent at £4 or link in the Game thread, hope that make sense

Any Granger Games in the London area?

That's a fair point, and I fully understand it. However initially when I posted the deal, I wasn't aware that game's deal had already been posted elsewhere on the forum, otherwise, as you say, I would've posted there instead, and I also wasn't aware that the other games were also cheap enough to find to also trade in (see richx45's post above), as you can see above I've edited the post a number of times based on other users replies, including linking to the other HUKD to give credit where it deserves and modifying the game trade in list.

Give him a break! Good deal HEAT AND REP FROM ME!

yes CEX put up FC2 from £5 -£8 but dropped double agent from £8 - £6 so if you can't find find Far Cry2, Splinter cell double agent will give you this deal for £6.99 which is still a steal for 1200pts but if you get it for £5.99 even better

hot from me

Welcome to HUKD, theslickmeister (though I appreciate you're not really new ), and thanks for posting the deal. Don't be put off from posting deals in future just because you get a few negative comments - unfortunately that's become the norm 'round these parts.

Was in my local Morrisons yesterday (Cleethorpes) and Far Cry2 was £6, don't know if it's national or not tho

How long is this offer on at Game. I wouldn't want to be stuck with a copy of Far Cry 2 if the offer ends in a few days ?
Good deal if the logistics work for you but I need to factor in time and car parking too as my local Game is in a shopping complex.

Hot deal mate, I live in Redcar do you know if Grainger had any more copies of Far Cry 2 left?

As the original post says, I think Game's offer lasts until the 17th of June

I just called my local GAME, and was informed that they are also offering the deal on:

MOH: Airborne
Left 4 Dead
Dead Rising
Saints Row 2
Bioshock
Orange Box

No mention of an end date.

Perhaps somebody else can verify?

if anyone can give a quick rundown of the prices the games above are selling for itd be helpful, im thinking of getting 2 from the list and paying £2 for 2 lots of points

or are these deals 1 per customer at the moment ?

It ends on June 17th.

I took my Splinter cell double agent to game to trade and they said it wasn't part of the deal! Although i was pretty sure i had seen it advertised in the paper. Can anyone confirm if Double Agent is part of the deal?

you cant avoid feeling robbed 1200 for maps its a joke. lol

Conveniently, both the GAME and Gamestaton near me have run out of 1200 cards, despite having stacks of display cases on the shelves and big posters advertising the deal. :roll:

£5.99 still too much for me for 1200 of these silly points. Seeing it written in a clear way, 1200 points = £5.99 makes you think about how much you're spending on these arcade games and map packs, and this is apparently a good deal...

lol, that's true, and usually 1200 = £10!

so now they are refusing to do the deal saying they have no cards when they do.........if they dont like the deal they shouldnt have made the offer in the first place. dickkheadss
