    I used to go to Gamestation and Game back when games were £20 - £30 at the most. But I just go on ebay now. You can probably get between £5 and £10 off brand new games.

    The cheapest online site, which is usually amazon.
    Sometimes supermarkets do good deals though.
    Got a brand new game on the day of release for £26 a couple of years ago.

    Amazon, I feel dirty as they seem to be the new Tesco's of the internet world, but they are cheap and reliable

    True - it will be a 3 way world war of amazon, google and apple. I'm getting a pen and paper and moving to fiji to escape it all

    Grainger games (If you aren't from the North of England, look it up), Game (probably not for much longer) and Amazon.

    Steam because of their fascist monopoly and snail paced download speeds and offline mode that needs an internet connection...

    I used to get most games from Amazon.co.uk (and a few from Play.com)but now I mostly get them from HMV instead because there are so few games that I want that they are usually low in price by the time that I buy them. When Max Payne 3 and Bioshock Infinite come out I might buy those online though. I have also bought some games from the Playstation store (Limbo and Silent Hill).

    It used to be HMV when I didn't know where else to buy games (lol), but now it's Game, ebay, Amazon...
