Play.com are at it again with another Monday Madness deal. What do you say to Prince of Persia for the frankly ridiculous price of £17.99? A great game for a great price, just in time for Christmas. What more could you want? Eagle-eyed Play.com visitors might have noticed that Tomb Raider: Un...

Mondays suck, so if you're bored sitting in the office why not do some Christmas shopping? Play.com have slashed the price on a decent number of games today. But only today, so if you fancy the look of these deals, get a move on. You can pick up Midnight Club: Los Angeles, Far Cry 2, Saints Row 2,...

Europe, rejoice! You're not being left out in the cold. Those amazing LittleBigPlanet preorder bonuses will be available on both sides of the Atlantic. So far, we've spotted Nariko hanging out over at Play.com, but there's no sign of any of the others. At least, not yet. The Nariko Sackgirl (who is...

What's better t han a cheap game? Two cheap games, obviously. Not only has Play.com cut all their platinum PS3 game prices by £5, but they're also offering two for £25. A saving of £15 off the RRP. Not bad at all, when you consider these games were the cream of the crop in 2007. Y...

It seems like Murlocs are the monster that everyone loves to hate. Almost everyone has a story of that one horrible Murloc battle that ended up in in tears and multiple corpse runs. Seriously, the nerve of some NPCs, actually grabbing their friends for the fight! The next thing you know, they'll be...

Europe has had Go!Explore downloadable maps available on the PSN Store since the end of May, but a lot of countries in the region don't even have the hardware yet.

When we last reported on Warhammer Online's pre-order foibles, we knew that the confusion was far from over. There were too many variables going into the distribution of those promotional codes for everything to go strictly according to plan. Predictably, there's some confusion coming in the wake o...

So confused. It's only been a number of hours since we told you that there will be no gunmetal Metal Gear Solid 4 hardware bundle in the UK. Imagine our surprise, then, when one of our commenters linked us to a pre-order page on Play.com for exactly that. There's no written info on the page and the...

No one will be surprised by this statement: Grand Theft Auto IV's pre-order sales are doing incredibly well. In fact, the game is in dangerously low supply due to the incredible demand. European retailer Play.com has already sold out of its GTA pre-orders, and GAME and Gamestation are both getting...

This is sort of along the same lines as the Woolworth article from the other day. While Woolworth claims that there are PS3 orders rolling in every 20 seconds, Play.com goes ahead and makes the announcement that the PlayStation 3 is the most pre-ordered console ever. Maybe that's because Play.com ha...
