Yeah, it looks like there’s too much stock taking up space at BTGames, so they’re practically giving away a ton of their stock. That stock includes hardware, like PlayStation Vitas they’re giving away from R2000, and Wii U bundles that can be had for just R3000. Sweet!
Every year, the fine folks from South Africa’s most prominent video game retailer BTGames host a clearance sale, giving gamers a chance to pick up a host of games, hardware and peripherals for a steal. This year is no different, and the sale kicks off tomorrow. We’ve got the details – but we’re only allowed to share a teeny-tiny bit of what’s to come.
I’ve got a bit of a love affair for strategy games and so I couldn’t not pass on this great information when I saw it this morning when I logged into Steam.
If you’ve had a look at the Steam summer sale and somehow managed to keep your wallet safe - then I’ve got bad news for you. Well, I suppose it’s good news if you’re looking for cheap games - but terrible if you were hoping to pass through the Steam Sale unscathed. The current flash sales - which you need to jump the hell on ASAP - are too good to pass up.
Zombies are awesome. I experienced that last night, with some co-op action in Dead Island. Of course there are plenty of other games with which to experience, with DayZ currently dominating that specific genre. It’s a zombie apocalypse simulation to the Nth degree, from food and water, through to ammo and weapon maintenance. Trouble is, most of you won’t be able to play it.
This weekend, following a surge of new game sales thanks to Steam’s always popular summer sale, Ubisoft’s PC gaming service UPlay was brought to its knees - leaving many PC gamers unable to play the new games they’d just bought.
We’ve all flogged a game before, in order to get some much needed green in our bank accounts. Heck, some of us have even ditched an entire collection of nostalgia and childhood memories for cash, but I’m pretty certain that no one here has ever sold this many games before.
It’s month end, and you’ve got a bank balance just waiting to be abused. What to spend your hard cash on? Upkeep on the house? Clothing, food? Pfft, that stuff is for squares, man. How about some brand new games, at a ridiculously low price instead?
A few weeks back, Incredible Connection had a rather unbelievable sale, selling some pretty rad games, such as Deus Ex Human Revolution and Driver San Francisco for R50, while other top notch games like Battlefield 3 and Assassin’s Creed Revelations were up for under a R100.
It was mad, and if you could get their horrible website to work, you would have procured some great games for yourself, just like me, as I recently received my Battlefield 3 in an open box, while the discs inside showed obvious signs of use, fingerprints, and scratches.
Minor Hulk rage aside, going into one of the actual shops around the country will more than likely get you a sealed and new game, and IC does have some great new games up for purchase with their latest sale.
[Update] The sales been extended - and everything's 60% off now. So...go buy games.
If you were in Cape Town a few months ago, chances were good that you attended that massive warehouse sale that Exclusives books had, in order to clear out some stock. It wasn’t just books that were being carted off however, as numerous games,were also being sold off at ludicrously low prices, while I sat back and bit my fists in sadness at some of the bargains that were infiltrating my Twitter feed.
The EB website, www.Exclus1ves.co.za, is gearing up for a digital sale at the end of this month, and it looks like a real doozy.
Ahh, limited collector’s editions of games are nice, eh? Extra special packaging, extra content and shiny, wholly superfluous swag to fill up collector’s display cabinets. They’re mostly pretty damned desireable - although their premium features do come with a premium price. Sometimes though, with a bit of patience, you can bag a princely prize for a pauper’s price. Online retailer kalahari.com’s clearing out their stock of unsold collector’s editions - and there’s some might fine gaming to be had for very little money.

So, there's a good chance that a lot of you on this site already have a gaming setup, which is understandable. You most probably have a few friends who are thinking about jumping in soon, but don't know where to get started... and that's where this bundle comes in.
Incredible Connection are running an insane bundle that hooks you up with everything you need to get gaming (quiet PS3 fanboys, we know it's an Xbox 360 bundle). We're talking console, LCD TV, games, vouchers, internet access... you name it.
The price is also, well, well wicked. Hit the jump for all the info.

If you have an iOS device and love games, then I have some very good news for you.
If you non-United-Statesonians didn't know, it's the 4th of July, which means that it's the day that
America fights off hordes of aliens and spaceships alongside Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum and also celebrates its Independance Day.
This year they are adding really cheap iOS games to their celebrations (mostly $0.99 for all), EA alone has 45 games for only $0.99 for both iPad and iPhone/iPod so check them out after the jump.
BT Games is having a massive stock clearance of all their Collectors Editions that werenâ€™t snapped up on release and there are some pretty good bargains here if you want to improve your collection.
Iâ€™m pretty much sold on one of the LBP2 collectors editions for only R499 myself but maybe something else here will catch your eye?
