Have we got a bargain for you!
Welcome ladies and gents to NZGamerâ€™s latest feature, Best Deals, in which I (with some help of our cunning members who have been keen-eyed and cashed in themselves) delve into the depths of the internet and gaming stores to retrieve the very best bargains and competitions for you. Who said that we never look after our members and visitors here at NZG?
Listed below in no particular order of preference are the hottest deals available at the moment, compiled for you in one neat list ready for you to attack gaming outlets. Remember: if you want to check out NZGâ€™s reviews/previews for every title, just click the game title and you will be taken to the hub for that respective game/console
• Doom 3: Collectorâ€™s Edition for the Xbox at the absolutely insane price of $18.00! Thatâ€™s a saving from the RRP of $80.
• Phantasy Star Universe for the Xbox 360 at the hot price of $48. Thatâ€™s a saving of $80 yet again. When I went to school back in the 90â€™s I learnt that 80 + 80 = 160. Thatâ€™s $160 cold hard cash you could have saved so far just by reading this very article!
• Last but not least from GPstore is a New Zealand favourite: Rugby League 2 on the PS2. This game is available for the paltry sum of $39.95, down from over the $100 mark that it would normally retail for.
• First for the PSP system, Capcom Classics Collection Reloaded is on sale for $40, which is a saving of just over 50%! Also on special for the PSP is Tomb Raider: Legend which, at the price of $60, saves you $40 from the RRP.
• Not to feel left out in the handheld cold, the Nintendo DS has some specials which will keep you glued to your portable screen.
You can scoop up the following titles for a steal at $20: King Kong, Battles of Prince of Persia and Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects.

• Ron, the big cheese himself, chimed in with this little gem: Mark Eckoâ€™s Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure is going for a red-hot $15 on PS2 and Xbox in selected Gamesman stores.
• Djkicks also handed me this hot tip for all you Auckland bargain hunters: Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter is going for $54.95 on the Xbox 360 at JB Hi-Fi on Queen Street, which at the time of printing is the cheapest price I could find in the land for this title.
And, in case you have been living under a rock or some other large inanimate object, NZGamer have been running great competitions since Adam was a cowboy.
And at the moment you have the chance to win in three competitions, where we are giving away a copy of Driver 76 for PSP and God of War II on PS2 separately, but both with t-shirts! Also up for grabs for you wrestling fans are the DVDâ€™s of 2007â€™s Royal Rumble and No Way Out.
So there it is, the first edition of Best Deals - and by doing some rough calculations Iâ€™ve come to the conclusion that in this edition Iâ€™ve saved you over $300! Not to mention the awesome competitions you could win here at NZGamer.com!
