I popped into Noel Leeming today and bought Killzone 2 for fifty five dollars which I thought was reasonable.
Also for PS3 they had Dead Space at forty dollars. It's a great game, plenty of scares, thrills and action.

I picked up Batman Arkhan Asylum on the 360 for $108 in Dick Smith's yesterday. That's a heck of a lot better than the RRP of $139(!!) or even DSE's introductory pricing of $119.

The upcoming Total War Anthology is available for pre-order on Mighty Ape for $89.99 with free shipping. All the Total War releases to date with their expansions and addons, plus apparently some bonus content for the upcoming Napoleon, all for the price of 1 new game. That's a good deal!

That total war pack is definately something for a trip to a deserted island. You are going to need some serious time on your hands if you are going to get value from that. I had Medieval 2 a while back but just couldn't get into it, looked pretty though.

It might get ArmA2 because I enjoyed the first and this looks even better, has anyone seen it cheaper? I might try the local JB HiFi here in St Lukes. I'll post my findings. I always like buying from shops where I can get my grubby hands on the box after I've handed over my hard earned cash. I'm not patient enough for mail order. :D

Yeah I saw that price, I was just hoping to get it for around $50.00, that way it would be easier to slip past the missus. ;) Hopefully JB's have accidentally dropped it into the bargain bin.

$59 at cdwow.co.nz good enough?

If you prefer locally, I have heard of mighty ape price matching with them :)

The 50-70 dollar mark is when I jump in. As I don't play online I'm not worried about having a game when it first comes out.
For Fallout 3 I think there is a GOTY version coming out which will have D/l content included, as well as some bug fixes.
As for slipping stuff past the missus, well she still hasn't realised that Killzone is a new purchase. If she asks I'll just have to call it a Fathers day presi to myself !

It's been £40-£45 over here since it came out, but spotted it for sale last night for £30. With the dammed exchange rate (good for you guys!) being the way it is atm, that's about $70.

Despite in saving mode right now I did pick it up, loving it so far...
