The Game Collection www.thegamecollection.net is always the cheapest by far, plus you get 'points' back which means a discount.

They used to be extra 'fast' with their pre-orders too, ahem.
Witcher GOTY edition is waay overpriced on there

red dead redemption 2 is overpriced as well

the site does have some decent prices though...

Steam, my guy, or origin and Uplay if steam dont have it, epic games if they have a REAL GOOD DEAL.
overall just download, its fast, cheap, easy, and you dont have to find places for physical disks.

You are still buying games? I thought that you have no time to play?

I'm talking about new. Don't know about games that have been out a while, but they never go higher than low £40s, usually low to mid £30s. They're also on Amazon and I think Ebay so sometimes they're cheaper on there 'cause they have to have the lowest price to sell.

Them, Shopto and Base I think always come up the lowest. But TGC have a points scheme and good customer service that means they beat those guys in reality.

I'm curious as to how people get their games.

Do you download them from the playstation store? [or similar store for your console], do you go to a highstreet store?, do you get them off Amazon? , do you get them off another online store?, are you pirate so no longer buy games?
i play pc, i buy from steam

Wherever is cheapest. If it's relatively cheap I might buy on the Playstation Store for convenience but it rarely matches the price of physical copies elsewhere.

I frequent sites like simplygames, ShopTo and TheGameCollection. Usually between these sites you can find the cheapest price for the game you're looking for. Sometimes Amazon can be good but recently that's rarely been the case.

Always look on ukhotdeals as a quick way to find the cheapest price on new releases.
