Whoa, that's unbelievable!

I waited to see what the 2pm offer was (Xbox Wireless Controllers, 15pounds) and they 30 available. They vanished in under 15 seconds (between a two refreshes).

Ban shampoo, demand real poo.

They had Premium packs at 219 at 11pm, gone instantly. It's a fun offer thing usually, but if they're only going to have 10 of 'most everything it's utterly pointless.

Not really an online bargain as such, but a bargain nonetheless.

Gamestation are doing We Love Katamari on the PSP in their sale for 19.99.

Yeah, I click through on exactly the right time and they had black DS lites for 50 quid So I went through to the next bit and all my details where filled out already, clicked confirm and the site had gone down!!

By the time it was back up they were all gone, what a load of rubbish.

You'd think Game would take into consideration that their website would get a huge influx of traffic at that point.

I'm guessing that as this was the first offer and it was a black ds lite, I'm guessing the last offer of the day will be white lites. And inbetween they'll have the usual array of games and crappy accessories.

I was wondering that myself.

The site keeps bloody breaking whenever there's anything good up there.

30 copies/units of a cheap item is not enough to go round thousands of people. Stupid Game.
