The DSG .97 clearance rears it's ugly head once more. Lots of .97 game bargains to be had.

This one is likely offline only but after going into Currys Digital in Commercial Rd Portsmouth and finding the following bargains (among others inc many 97p ps2 games)

Kameo on 360 £9.97
GRAW 360 £9.97
Archer Macleans PSP £4.97
Open Season Wii £14.97
Amped 360 £8.97

The manager assured me this is a national clearout (started on the 16th apparantly) but stocks are sporadic - what is in one store might not be in others, and stock is likely to be concentrated in larger stores/ city centre stores, so if passing by well worth checking out. The items above are not an exhaustive list - there were several bins full of this level of pricing. NB - Always check individual items on a site like find-games.co.uk if unsure.

Will try and have a look in Currys today - got some good bargains last time

Cheers for the tip - I think I'll pop my head in to Currys today and have a look.....

Didnt know Pixmania is owned by DSG :roll:

No wonder their discounts are now similar to DSG price match codes

I didn't even notice that - very observant Edi!

Can you recall any of the PS2 97p games?

Sorry no, I wasn't really looking at them as I don't own a ps2, just noticed they were there. I can have another look when I'm next near a currys if that's any help?

Yeah, that would be great. My usual Currys employ stroppy staff who huff and puff at any mention of "Can you scan it for me" as they never bother to actually price up any games.

The one by the fountain in Commercial Road has some, as does the Burfields Bridge PC World/ Currys (according to a couple of friends, I haven't personally checked those 2 yet). If ya go to the commercial rd one speak to the blonde girl who works there.. She'll bring up a list of .97 for you - I only looked at wii/ 360 for a minute but I'm sure she'd cooperate.

I work for PCWorld and managed to pick up a few bargain ps2 games last time they had a clearance - Total overdose, prince of persia two thrones, splinter cell: chaos theory and smackdown vs raw for 97p each!

Im in work tonight i will print up a stock report of games and post any good bargains here tonight

Nice one biff! Would rep ya but will have to wait

I mostly missed out last time, only managed to get prince of persia and sly 2.

Spotted Kameo for xbox 360 at my local, but scanned at £14.97

Im anyone spots any good PC games let us know.

Out of curiosity I just had a look online and some games are listed in the PS2 games as 0.97
I popped a couple in my basket, and selected Checkout, now it won't recognise the name of my Town for 'Collect in Store' stating the page is in for maintenance.
If you open a fresh page the items are no longer available.
So I guess this is Instore Only as the OP suggested

Our one hadn't bothered to replace price stickers at all and no way was I going to ask them to scan 15 360 games so they've sold nothing.

Unless they're really trying to "clear" PGR3 for £44.99 (or £20 above rrp for short) that is,

Yup, none of the games had been repriced in my branch either. Lazy staffers!

It's worth asking them to scan things if no prices have been updated - last time the clearance was on after crimbo none of my locals had put new stickers on but prices had been updated on system.

Yeah but I'm not going to stand there for 20minutes while a person who clearly hates me scans an entire bucket full of games on the off chance one of them is a price I like.

That said, if anyone actually knows what the real price of Burnout Revenge is in there I'd be vaguely interested.

GRAW scanned at £19.97...

So they're not even consistent. Joy

gutted its the only one i was really keen on!!

Be aware that some of these games come in versions with different barcodes and possibly different prices. Kameo, I know is available as the original and as a classics re-issue. I suspect that its the old stock and barcodes that have been discounted. I believe the same goes for GRAW.

Original Poster

Which version of graw was it?
Only the classics edition in grey case was reduced in mine.

Checked my local Currys this afternoon and everything was priced as usual.
Tracked down a guy I know that works there and he scanned the entire system for gaming bargains and showed me the price lists. Nothing was discounted and apparently the prices should be consistent nationwide.

He did spare a moment to brag about the 32inch LG LCD TV he bought for £97.00 from Currys the other week though - I guess the HUKD crowd must have missed that one then! (or more likely the staff bought them all).

Unusual. Had quite a few in Portsmouth - can pick up a couple more n post em on if anyone wants. Will click expired.

32" for £97? Nice.

Dunno why this is listed as expired but i checked in work tonight and got a list of the PS2 games that are going cheap. here they are (SKU code included so just get a member of staff to check to see if they have any in stock!)

920862 Splinter Cell Chaos Theory - 97p
736522 Tony Hawks Underground 2 - 97p

could this be the lg that was mis-advertised as hd ready and wasnt so is being refunded?

Thats the old list, from ages ago.

HHere is the ]LINK to the old thread from when items were 47p, then went back up in price. I have checked a few SKU's and the prices are still the higher ones - no further reductions on the items listed.

My bad, i never seen the old thread.
