57
Found 26th Nov 2010Made hot 26th Nov 2010
Edit: Last good deal is Fable 3 for £22.80, looks like it's £32+ everywhere else.
That's all the deals they're offering today apparently.

Edit: They've just added some preowned/refurbed Xboxes, but not sure if they're that great a deal seeing as it might be hassle claiming the warranty for an Irish based company. Might interest someone still though

Edit: They just sold out of DSes

Edit: They've just added Halo: Reach for £22.80

Edit: They've just added Enslaved for £22.80 - Edit2: Zavvi just dropped Enslaved to £18

Edit: They've just added that PS Move Starter Pack + Free Game for £44

Edit: They're reactivated all of today's deals so far, so the cheap DSes are AVAILABLE AGAIN.

---------------

They have a new black friday deal every hour, follow the link for the page that will reveal them all.

I've had stuff from these guys before, comes in good condition but had trouble trading in their copy of ME2 i received.

Your bank might charge a currency conversion fee depending on the bank, Barclays is under 50p, Santander is the highest at £2.50

2 Euro shipping, although will that increase to UK?

Original Poster

I tweeted em asking for info on their returns policy.

The €2 shipping is how much it'll cost to UK

Only other fees are your bank might charge a currency conversion fee (the most this will be would be £2.50 i think, if you're with a rip off bank like santander, most banks are free or under 50p though)

One thing i'm unsure about is if you could possibly get stung on import duty...

any cashback? quidco etc?

You don't get charged when buying stuff from EU member countries, only excise duties are applicable, but a DS doesn't fall under exicse duties

25 minutes til it expires, shame it didnt get hot so more people could see it.
Cheapest i've ever see a DS lite, even if it's in questionable condition. You at least should have some form of comeback if it's in a bad state, where it's from a major retailer, etc...

Good price. You can re-house the parts which aren't in great condition. I suppose all that matters is that it works.

I already have one.. but kind of want to get another becuase its cheap.. or maybe Ill wait till the 3DS comes out

cool. am looking for dsi though

Buy
sell on ebay
???
Profit?

Think the website links have gone down!

That's really good! Will keep on refreshing the page to see the rest of their BF offers. Hopefully they'll have Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood on it.

awful website, tried to buy, signed up and then wouldnt accept my login details.

no black in stock

good deal but expired too late to notice :-(

Good spot, grabbed one just in time by the sound of things..

Original Poster

They've just reactived all of today's offers for a limited time, so you can still grab DSes or any of the other ones that grab your fancy

Would their wii games be PAL do you think and be able to be used on UK wiis? On product descriptions there is no mention of this.Maybe a silly question?

Yes they're PAL, all of europe uses PAL. (Just make sure you're going to gamestop.ie, and NOT gamestop.com, most of the american site's versions wont work on your european console)

Only minor problem might possibly be some might have a slightly different barcode from UK releases (which can cause problems at places like Asda or Tesco that only scan the barcode on trade in, hence why they wouldnt take my ME2 i got from gamestop that was identical in every other way to a UK version)

Shouldnt have issues trading in at other places though i dont think

Edit:
Oh, and my Gamestop.ie copy of Lost Planet 2 traded in fine at Asda/Tesco, etc.

starter pack the cheapest I have seen is for £37, currently chepest I can find is £42.
the games are about £20-25, and this works out at about £44 for both with current exchange rate.

Seems that for the Move Starter Pack alone it's roughly the same price as other places, based on gamestracker.com/pla…htm

But then the free game seems to be £22 in other places
gamestracker.com/sta…htm
gamestracker.com/spo…htm

And based on the wiki it seems like the free game isn't usually included, so it's not like a "wii sports" kinda deal, i dont think en.wikipedia.org/wik…ove

So based on that it seems a good deal, but, i dont have a PS3 and i have no interest in Move, so i could be wrong

Couple of quid cheaper than what's currently available elsewhere, but it's a crap game, so your call.
Wouldnt be surprised to see MoH drop in price more leading up to christmas (just a total guess, but you might see it in gamestation's £20 weekly deal soon)

Thankyou for the info

Do you not have anything better to do with your time? Cheapskate.

I agree, people like you ruin these deals for people who actually want the product. It's not as if you'll even make more than a quid or two.
