Picked up a copy of the above game at Tesco today. It was already reduced from £3 to 25p in the Tesco Entertainment Sale, but when I took it to the counter, I noticed that it scanned at £0.01.

Cheapest I've seen elsewhere was 98p in Game. I noticed someone saying the game wasn't that good and that they wouldn't pay 98p for it. However, 1p doesn't seem too bad and after all, you can always trade it in at CEX for 40p cash or 60p exchange!

(My local Tesco is the Ricoh Arena branch in Coventry).

Yep - there was at least one left in there. It was behind a few of those multi-game compendiums that they are trying to shift, about the third 'shelf' up 2nd set of shelves in, if that makes sense...

so for 1p you have your time wasted?

considering time is priceless, this isnt such a good deal.

EDIT: oh hang on you might want that DVD case for 1p

Not sure what you mean there - is the game meant to be that bad? Or a joke about having to sort through the multi-game compendiums?:?

Perhaps if someone wrote PS3 on it you'd buy it.

i assume its bad since the OP says "I noticed someone saying the game wasn't that good and that they wouldn't pay 98p for it"

if it had trophies then yes i would but normally i just go for the AAA exclusives, most the third party devs dont even know how to port properly or cant afford more human resources.

The game is pretty ok for an RTS, interesting concepts, good graphics, smooth performance, worth £3 let alone the rest

I read that comment from someone else and thought I'd mention it by way of providing balance - I can't personally comment on the quality of the game, as I haven't installed it yet.

However, the developer, Petroglyph are usually quite good and Metacritic scores the game at 77, so surely its worth 1p - especially if you like RTS games.

On-topic: Universe At War wasn't the best game in my opinion, so it's a matter of whether or not you have enough spare time to play some "okay-ish but not great" games. I personally don't, but if you have some spare time it's not bad either.

excellent buy, i bought the same game from Gamestation for a quid the other week.

best thing about these cheap GFW Live games is u can use the CDkeys from any GFW Live game and use it on another game so u can play on Live with them

Except Killzone 2 or the PS3. :whistling: /sarcasm.

It has decent reviews. I doubt you've even played the game, hell, you probably don't even know what the game is since it's pretty unpopular and you seem to prefer being a PS3 Fanboy/Troll. Just because this isn't FPS doesn't mean it's a waste of time. RTSes are fun for those who enjoy the genre just like FPSes are fun for people who enjoy that genre.

I like how playing a game you might enjoy is wasting your time but suddenly playing a crap game for trophies isn't.

Boy - you sure start early!

I like UaW a lot, though I assuime the negativity towards it comes from the xbox owners as rts games temd not to play too well on a control pad vs mouse and kb controls.
Heat added, its a steal at this price.
