    were the 3DS' still normal price then? If they drop down to stupid money I'll definitely pick one up.

    I believe some of the prices I've seen are:

    Nintendo Wii: 40 (White)
    50 (Black)
    60 (Limited Edition Red or Blue)

    PS3:
    40, 60, 80gb Original Consoles 99
    120gb and 160gb Slim 120
    250gb 150

    DS:
    Original 20
    Lite 35
    DSi 59.99
    DSi XL 79.99

    PSP:
    Base: 30
    Slim: 40


    Not sure on any Xbox prices. That's about as accurate as I remember

    Could be tempted a PS3. Would u say it's worth gettin a 250gb or would 160 be plenty. It'd serve as a second console just to play PS3 exclusives if I did get one.

    I've got a 160gb Slim and it's plenty enough space, I store a couple hundred songs on, few films and then a tonne of games from PS Store. Still got 60gb free

    My local Gamestation is closing. A few others are too, but not quite a full on Woolworths style "LETS BUY ALL THE STUFF!" shindig yet.

    well I went to GAME and they were all out of 160gb slims for 129.99, only had 320gb slims left, an seen as they were only 20 quid more, and I had 7 on my reward card I bought one. Don't really need a PS3 as I have a 250gb Xbox, but at least I don't feel like I'm missing out on exclusives any more. Plus it's got a blu-ray player, so it's win win all round.

    And it looks like it's Game Over.

    Game Group is poised to go into administration after the video-game retailer’s board concluded that there was “no equity value left in the group”, making it the largest store chain to go into insolvency since Woolworths disappeared from the high street in 2008.
    After requesting a suspension of trading in its shares before the London Stock Exchange opened on Wednesday, the company later said it had filed a notice of intention to appoint an administrator.

    It said: “The board has concluded that its discussions with all stakeholders and other parties have not made sufficient progress in the time available to offer a realistic prospect for a solvent solution for the business.”
    PwC is expected to be appointed as the company’s administrator. Although no specific timescale for administration has been indicated, the process is expected to begin within five working days. Game stores will continue to trade in the meantime.
    The likely appointment of administrators comes despite there being an offer on the table from OpCapita, the private equity group that bought Comet for 2 last year.
    OpCapita said: “We put forward a fully funded proposal which would have preserved Game as a viable business in partnership with the suppliers who have been very supportive.”
    But other people close to the situation said OpCapita’s offer had been conditional and Game's lenders – led by Royal Bank of Scotland and Barclays – had not been convinced that OpCapita could provide a viable solution.
    GameStop, the US video games retailer, also expressed an interest over the weekend, while Hilco, the retail restructuring specialist, was also interested in Game’s international assets. The company has a total of 1,300 stores across the UK and Europe, making it the continent’s largest specialist videogaming retailer.
    OpCapita is thought unlikely to look at the business if it enters administration.
    Game has been struggling to find the funds to pay rent due at the end of this week. The retailer had been expected to close as many as half of its 600 stores under plans being drawn up by its banks, while Rothschild has been trying to find a buyer.
    Game’s imminent insolvency comes after the collapse of retailer Peacocks in January.
    With the video games market in decline and specialist stores facing competition from supermarkets and online retailers, Game was hit last month when several main suppliers including Electronic Arts and Nintendo refused to provide key titles.
    Jas Purewal, an interactive entertainment lawyer at Osborne Clarke, said that Game’s creditors, employees, customers and investors were all at risk.
    “If a white knight willing to buy the whole group can’t be found, it is possible that the administrator will spin out the valuable parts of Game into a new business entity to be purchased by interested third parties, which could effectively allow Game to continue to trade under a new guise,” Mr Purewal said, adding: “The collapse of Game may hasten the transition to a world of digital distribution.”
    Figures published on Thursday by the Entertainment Retailers Association showed that more than a quarter of the 1.9bn spent by consumers on video games last year were spent on digital games, rather than on the high street.
    Despite Game’s struggles, growth from apps and downloads made gaming the UK’s biggest single entertainment sector last year, overtaking video for the first time.
    The overall UK entertainment market fell 3.3 per cent to 4.8bn last year, the ERA said, with games dropping 2.2 per cent, video down 3.7 per cent and music 4.4 per cent lower than the previous year.

    Oh. Yeah, about a week late on this, but OpCapita saved Game & Gamestation in the UK. Yay. Probably spent more than the 2 they splashed out on Comet.
