JB Hi-Fi began the selling spree, and EB Games went one step further, but Dick Smith have outdone both of them by slashing prices on over 100 games.
We’ve reported on JB Hi-Fi making pre-owned games cheaper and Eletronics Boutique offering half price on 74 pages of games on their website, but Dick Smith have trumped them both.

, Dick Smith’s latest price bonanza has marked a massive variety of games on “clearance” – usually $20, but with a fair amount of games going for $10. Games across all platforms have been slashed, although PS3 owners are offered very little and fans of the Wii don’t get any games for less than $25.
Xbox 360 owners can now pick up Xbox Live Arcade Unplugged, Quake 4, F.E.A.R, Shadowrun, Dead or Alive Extreme 2, Ghost Recon 3 and Viva Pinata for $10. Pay $10 more and you can get Call of Duty 3, Prey, Condemned and Ghost Rising.
PC gamers, who were neglected in the first round of price wars between the retail outlets, get the second best deal out of the lot with 37 games going for $10, in some cases $5!
For value for money, PC gamers will have trouble looking past the critically acclaimed Rome: Total War, Doom 3 and Rise of Nations Gold for $5. Pay another $5 and you can pick up Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War, Quake 4 Collectors Edition, the global smash hit Civilization 4, Battlefield 2, Star Wars: Knights of the Republic 2, Neverwinter Nights Platinum, Heroes of Might and Magic 5 and Rollercoaster Tycoon 3.
While the Wii might not have much on offer, there’s plenty on sale for the Nintendo DS. Ice Age 2, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire will set you back ten dollars, while the smash hit Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney will cost you $15.
But none of the offers compare to what Dick Smith has given to PSP owners: 52 games are up for grabs at $20 or less. Burnout Legends, Test Drive Unlimited, Ace of War, Exit 2, Need For Speed: Most Wanted, FIFA Street 2 Platinum and World Series Poker are only $10 each. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2007, WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2007, Family Guy and UEFA Champions League 2007 can all be yours for $20.
And that’s barely the tip of the heap. There’s a ridiculous amount of games on offer, so if you’ve got any eye for value, have a look at the full list for yourself.
