    Well played, that game is surprisingly fun for a movie tie-in kiddie game. :^:

    Ah.

    So Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard is just over £25 on both PS3 and 360 at the Hut.

    Out on the 27th. Looks interesting but I've had almost no impressions from anyone. Wouldn't mind reviewing that one. :D

    The gameplay video(s) on that one makes the gameplay look less than promising. Third person, with a large aiming rectangle, making it look like the PSP version of Resistance.

    I'd really have to try a demo before buying it, at any price, despite how funny it might be.

    It would be awesome if I'm wrong, of course.

    From the videos I've seen this doesn't seem to happen. All the enemies have been 3D.

    To be honest I'm not even sure what the game is from the previews.

    An attempt at satirising games (in particular it looks like Duke Nukem, but with a bunch of other games and conventions thrown in), but possibly lacking the important aspect of being good in itself.

    The Hut 10% off sale

    Some crazy prices here.

    You get 10% off each item, then £2 off the total order if it is £20 or more. So you can get the likes of Street Fighter 4 for £23.86, Burnout Paradise - The Ultimate Box for £20.44, Mad World for £23.86, or Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop for £19.54, and many more.

    I notice that thehuts price for Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor is only £13.26. I can't seem to get the £2 discount to work on it, so perhaps it's only for items over £20?

    I've been experimenting with my basket a lot, but can't seem to work out the rules exactly.

    It might just be that some items are excluded, but there is some pricing witchcraft going on...

    edited March 2009
    Either way, I meant that £13.26 for Tales of Valor was amazing, it's Relic so I'm pretty sure it's a safe buy. And I picked up Dawn of War 2 from your links, thanks!

    Can't seem to use their new site properly though, finding it really hard to search for anything, but cancelled my old streetfighter IV (PC) pre-order with them and used the new discount code to drop it to just £16.14. I love it when a good bargain gets better.

    YEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!

    Just managed to order a copy of ZOE2 from CEX. They finally put one of the 3 or so copies they've had in their stores online, and it's mine mine all mine. You do see the odd copy on eBay, but it's always for a lot more than the £20 Cex charge, plus you get the 12 month guarantee with Cex. Checking every day for months finally paid off.

    Cardiff still has their Zavvi open. On the topic of which, I don't need a copy of Mass Effect for the PC from there any more because I bought one off of eBay for £8.50. Now to hope that it'll install/activate fine even though it's used.

    Man, the Hut is getting hammered. That or my connection's shaky.

    I'm a bit surprised that Mirror's Edge PC hasn't still dropped in price. Anyone got cheaper than the Hut's discount price (£24~)?

    Decided to get a Red 360. By the time I flog off my own 20GB 360, the new 120GB from the red 360 (I have a 120GB already), the copies of SF2HD and RE5, and taking into account the month of live you get, the quidco and the reward points, it'll only cost around £30. Not bad for upgrading to an HDMI system, with a new 3 year guarantee (my current one is over 3 years old now), plus it's definitely a Jasper. And red is my favourite colour.

    Yeah, the Leeds one was still open the other day, I imagine it won't have shut by the weekend. They've still got 25% off everything and they've dropped their prices even lower. Loads of games were £9.99 or less, a fair few blurays for £12 or less. And then the 25% on top of that.

    Yes, I have the cable and software. However, I just realised that the the 120GB drives will be different colours. The one I have now, on my launch premium, is grey, but the one on the Red Elite, looks black, to match the black grill. So I suppose I'll have to transfer my info to the new HDD, and sell the gray one. Oddly, new ones (mainly asian imports without the transfer kit), and used ones (usually from UK sellers), both seem to go for about £70 shipped on eBay. I'd lose part of that to fees, but I should still get £65 for it.

    Looks like the 'newlook10' code doesn't work on thehut anymore. On the up side, I noted that they brought zavvi's online prices into line with thehuts last night* (and they still have the 10% off on top) so I ordered from them

    *disclaimer: I only checked the prices of dawn of war related games. Still DoW complete for £11.50? not bad really, not bad at all.

    A little different from the usual games bargains, but I could use the input. I'm looking to step up to HDTVs. I've a premium (non-hdmi) 360, and no PS3. So i was looking to find myself a flashy, sub £900 tv and then maybe grab myself the PS3 mainly for the Blu-Ray rather than anything else. I've got most of the games I'd buy on the PS3 already for the 360, so there'd only be LittleBigPlanet and MGS4 that I'm really after.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for a decent, 40-ish inch HDTV? I've got the PCI cable for the 360, so I'd probably use that for HD there. Is it worth holding out for a price drop on the PS3 before getting one?

    I'll give you fifty quid for the grey one :P I'm still on my 20GB I got with my Pro. It's the cool one with the silvery trim, too, so the grey one will clash slightly with my box :(

    The samsung series 6 40 inch HDTV was the best value one I found when looking for one for my dad. It has the 100htz motion plus which does give a big advantage for the blu ray movies, 4 HDMI ports and looks good with the red finish. Managed to get one for £700 think play.com still sells them for that price.
