    Firstly, one (yet to be substantiated) rumour is a drop to £99 for the Gamecube sometime in November (probably near the end). We'll see; it'd hardly be shocking, however.

    Secondly, more immediate, and why this is in 'software', PC World may well be holding another of their 'any console game for £25' from tomorrow until Sunday. Confirmation or refutation in the morning, obviously, but after forgetting to post the last time this happened, and Dan missing out on it, I thought it needed a heads-up.

    Aah.

    This is Rumour Control, here are the Facts.

    The PC World deal does exist, but only in Northern Ireland, for some obscure reason that I fail to grasp. This means that its not available from PCWorld.co.uk either. The Mainland just gets some sale where their PCs go from obscene to just ludicrously expensive, instead.

    RIGHT, well we have a few options;

    1) swim
    2) ferry
    3) sulk here and put up with £44 x-box games.

    I vote for option 3. Take no action, that's the British way!

    If you guys are after some of the MS games like Halo, Rallisport, Project Gotham then let me know...i can get them at very reasonable prices.

    Otherwise i'd recommend Play247.com, their prices go from £32.99 upto £39.99

    Paul,

    Many thanks for that. £31 shipped for most X-box games is very nice. I'll give them a try in the coming weeks. Seems they are Beaconsfield based, that's only a few towns over, fifteen mins max so shipping could be nice and fast from them. Super!

    Dan
