    The money I would save on these deals is nullified by the money I would need to move to England.

    Or shipping.

    Yep - just DS - If I recall correctly.

    DS Lite Black
    Brain Training

    DS Lite White
    Nintendogs
    Trauma Centre
    Super Princess Peach
    DS Lite Black
    Something (?)
    Something (?)
    DS Wifi Dongle
    Resident Evil DS

    Well, the pattern has been hardware-software-software, so I think SPP and the second lot of black Lites are the wrong way round on that list. And there's one too many somethings listed for the number of hours there've been, if my counting is up to scratch. Otherwise accurate, as far as I remember.

    But obviously to make that into a viable anecdote you have to tart it up a bit.

    Your right:

    12pm DS Lite Black
    1pm Brain Training
    2pm NSMB
    3pm DS Lite White
    4pm Nintendogs
    5pm Animal Crossing
    6pm DS Lite Black
    7pm Trauma Centre
    8pm Super Princess Peach
    9pm DS Wifi Dongle
    10pm Resident Evil DS
    11am Software
    12am Hardware
    1am Soft
    2am Soft
    3am Hard
    4am Soft
    5 am Soft
    6 am Hard
    7 am Soft
    8 am Soft
    9 am Hard
    10 am Soft
    11 am Soft

    The order of the games may be wrong - but thats the full list of stuff - and the times assuming they keep the hard/soft pattern going.

    Though I expect 11am will have a crazy deal as a going out "bang" so I doubt it will hold.

    Man I totally forgot about this but thankfully there's been nothing I want. Although I would have bought an extra Lite, just to look at :)

    Oh, and I have £10 in reward points, so it's an even bigger sale for me.

    Edit: Holy Cow that Nintendogs went unbelievably quickly!

    Nintendogs is a fun buy for that price, but it's already sitting in my case not being played. Also it's pretty cheap anyway in most places now.

    Still, I predict a quality pull-up next! I mean what other hardware is there besides the dongle? They're not going to fop us off with a case are they?

    Hmm, I can predict at one more item.

    Also - they sold 50 in no more than 42 seconds.

    The wind seems to be falling from the Sales (geddit?)

    They might just wait till the wee(wii) hours of the night to put shit like a black DS Lite, etc. up there supercheap. That way they reduce the number of potential people snapping them up and might have some stock left over.

    I dunno. This isn't to make money - this is to advertise. Get people talking about game. No one thinks to buy from game on line. This gets the idea in their head.

    And in that case they want to save the DS Lites to a more visible time.

    Or we might have seen all of the lites, push them out to start off with and then you can cash in on the lite winners getting feeding frenzy after their *win* and blinding feasting on the other not so nutritious items.
    Then they might put another lot in *somewhere* possibly the middle of the night to attempt to make it look a bit more balanced.

    Or I could be talking crap.

    I'd been discusing with some friends how one of the final ones might possibly be some money off a Wii pre-order. Unlikely with no official price annoucment though.

    Edit: Oh dear, shovelware.

    At 1 they had Touch Golf, which I bought. I've got Touch Golf, Super Princess Peach and Meteos now, though I have a feeling I'll be taking one or two back, or ebaying them.
