OK, this is getting crazy. Deus Ex Human Revolution has had another price cut to under 12.

Ridiculously cheap at that price.

That's why I'd advise against buying most single player games on release. Wait a few weeks to a couple of months and the price will have plummeted.

Saying that though I'm still buying Skyrim on release day

Another price cut! Whats up, didn't it sell much so they are now wanting to get rid of the copies?

I'm gutted actually. I bought it online from Gamestation just last week for 14.99 and now it's down to 12.99.

Was speaking to the guys at my local Gamestation when it had been out for a couple of weeks and the price had gone down for the first time. They'd said Square Enix were desperate to shift as many copies as possible so had OK'd the price drops. Amazing really. It's barely been out for long, scoring consistently highly in reviews, yet it's virtually a budget title already.

Rage is 17.99 on PS3 and 360 from Play. Pretty impressive price drop considering how long it's been out....

Scratch that, looks like it was a one day thing yesterday....

It's sold over 2 million copies across all platforms, which pretty good for any game, especially one for a long-dormant series where the last game was crap.

Went for a bit of that Child of Eden action. Also did the Ben 10 PS3 deal, as I can more or less double my money trading it in... Winner.

For those that miss this deal it's 25 on Zavvi as well, think the price is fixed there also, or at least it has been for the last week or so.

Amazon too. This is irritating because I bought it the other day for 28 thinking it wouldn't go down but possibly back up again. It's not like I even have it yet, I have to wait till I go back home next weekend for the Christmas holidays. That 3 could have gone towards another pint at the uni christmas boozeup!

I agree directorscut there are games where it's definitely been worth picking up right away. If you manage to put the hours in and enjoy the game fair enough. But when life get's in the way and you don't and only a few weeks latter it's half price it does get annoying. Especially when you can't afford to buy many full priced games as it is.

My worst burn this year although I should have known better has been Marvel Vs Capcom 3. Sure I thought a sequel would be released but I thought it would be a year at least. Then low and behold around three months after launch Ultimate the sequel is announced ... so my games obsolete in no time. Not to mention the fact I bought it for 40 and I've played it for two hours! I played it more than that before it came out. 

Rant over.

This offer was extended to the 14th Dec! Pity I couldn't buy it as it's on my Christmas List and I think I may have already had it bought. Plus, the offer ran out a day before Payday!
