GAME are a bit crap for going in, trying to find something and then deciding "I'll have that then". Most non-software items for most systems are locked away in the cabinets behind the tills or in their big store-rooms out the back. You have to ask a member of staff whether or not they have any floating around - and since they don't openly show that they do, chances are that there are loads.
Still, it's better than Gamestop putting them onto the shelves and ripping everyone else off 'cos GAME don't and thus no-one realises that they're paying about £10 more than they should be.
I was literally talking to a mate today saying that the only real "Xbox Original" game I would be interested in getting off of Live was Ninja Gaiden Black. I had a quick look at the new releases a minute ago and what do I see. Ninja Gaiden Black is out on the 11th, ka-ching!

Ok, I went in a game shop today (not GAME, a independant one) and had this conversation.
Me: "hi, can you tell me how much Id get for trading in Megaman ZX on the DS?" Woman: "mega....man? Er, Ive never heard of that, come back later when *some guy* is in"
*wandering around, and come back*
Woman: "oh *whatever the guys name was*, this young lady wanted to know what the trade in for...what was it?" Me: "Megaman ZX" Woman: "...for megaman was" Guy: "Mega...man?"
Guy: "what was it called?" Me: "Megaman ZX on the DS" Guy: "Is it imported? I cant find it..." Me: "no, the series has been out for ages, it was on the Snes and others." Guy: "It says its not even out yet, Megaman ZX advent..." Me: "its Megaman ZX" Guy: "oh...hmm, well I dont know." Me: "I got it from GAME just a few weeks ago" Guy: "erm...well lets say £15 store credit" Me: "ok thats fine, Ill bring it in tomorrow."
Now although it took me about 10 years to get though to this dense man and what appeared to be his wife, I got £15 store credit, and I paid £9.99 for it. #VALUE!
So, should I get that 45-in-one (or whatever its called)? That will only cost me £5. They dont seem to have much in the way of "good" games like PW or...anything at all.
This 'games' store is obviously immensely cruddy and should be burned to the ground and never mentioned again. Srsly. Also, the 45-in-one is just games you can get better versions of for free on the computer. Not that any of them are remotely interesting anyway.
