Oh, Amazon. Your sales used to be so good. Just two Nintendo DS games reduced this year? That’s really pitiful. Even more so when one of these is the dire King Kong; the other isn’t even a game, it’s the DS Lite Browser for £14.87. Star Ocean and Makai Kingdom on PlayStation 2 – for £10.97 and £11.97 respectively – are worth having if you’re into your RPGs, and Odama on GameCube is £18.97. That’s about it, really.
Thankfully the Woolworths sale makes up for it, with FlatOut 2 on PlayStation 2 for a nice £3.99 and Pac Pix and Mr. Driller on DS for £8.99 each. If you’re still keeping hold of your original Xbox, you’re spoilt for choice: Half Life 2 and Tomb Raider Legends are £9.99 a pop, while The Warriors and a handful of others are only £3.99. A 2000 point Wii card for £13.99 is about the only Wii-related thing we’ve seen in any of the online sales.
CD Wow have a couple of reduced import DS games – Mario Hoops 3-on-3 and Pokemon Ranger – for £20.49. Simply Games, who are now under new management (again), have Stella Deus on PlayStation 2 for £9.99 and Killzone for £4.99, while Gottlieb Pinball Classics on PSP is £10. Just one game stands out in the very poor Sainsbury’s sale, and that’s Dynasty Warriors – also on PSP – for £9.99.
Toys R Us have three 360 games for a tenner each – Amped 3, NHL 2K6 and NBA 2K6 – but they’re currently sold out. Project Gotham Racing 3 is a fiver more and Taito Legends Powered Up on PSP is a mere £7.99. The chance to play New Zealand Story again is worth that alone.
Is that every store covered? Probably not. That’s what the comment section is for though.
