Unprecedented pricing for games and hardware, starting from next Monday

Retailer Dick Smith from this Monday will no longer be stocking any games. So what are they going to be doing with all their stock? Selling it for absolutely crazy prices. Really really crazy prices. Ecogamer has the entire list which consists of games from every platform, but some highlights for Nintendo fans include;

- Nintendo DSi Hardware Pink, Blue $20  Black, White $40 (The Fu..)
- Nintendo Wii Console $129
- Professor Layton and Pandora’s Box $5
- Nintendogs+Cats (all versions) $10
- Super smash Bros Brawl $15
- Pokemon Heart Gold and Soul Silver $10
- Metroid Other M $5
- Wii Classic Controller $5

There’s also cheap Xbox 360’s ($100), PSP’s ($40) and many many more bargains.

Since EcoGamer is now down, here’s the links to the images.

Page 1 - Page 2 - Page 3

The sales starts April 2nd, so scope out your local Dick Smith store for what you want, check it on the list and be there first thing Monday we say. This is madness!

I think I might have to take the day off from work to get in early.
My god. Just think about the number of free games you could get "trading" in to say, EB.

The only real dilemma is which Dicksmith to go to. Since some stock more/better games than others.

First they get rid of all their hobby electronic parts; now they're getting rid of their games. What are they going to have left to sell?
I'm guessing they couldn't compete with JB or EB.

Playa - I'm eying off the one opposite the cinemas in innaloo. The super store. 9am bright and early.
Ninjadead - i thought that too, but it looks more like this is leaked inside information that someone happy snapped.

@ ninja, maybe you're right but then again I'm going regardless (unless april's fool revealed before then). Also on that note, I don't believe Myers had an official announcement in regards to selling no more games. :/

@pchan, for me it'll be cannington then work my way around the metro areas nearest me :)

Haha! Well, looks like Playa is doing the entire run of perth to get the best of everything! I'm just hitting up one store, hopefully taking a few buds with me then grabbing lunch. I'm not sure how big the canning store is, but the Innaloo one is huge. (why am I telling you this? We'll be fighting oover the last xbox they have :P)

It sucks if it is true because I won't be able to spend much :/ I'm just aiming for a few particular items and if I get any of them then I'll be happy

I'm probably going to rock up at McDonalds at 8am, then casually cross over.
Cheers Ninjadead for confirming with DSE! All the more reason to sleep at a sane hour on Sunday.

I'm scared that the Dick Smith staff will put aside the good stuff for themselves ...especially consoles

hopefully management has told staff that they're not allowed to due to customer sales...though I doubt it :/

Another thing is maybe them doing a 1 individual item per customer deal. Most stores tend to do that so everyone gets a fair go. Though I believe everything is fair game.

Aww I buy quite a few games from Dick Smith, sad to see them go. And I'm very sad I'll be missing the sales as I'm going on holiday April 1st. Missed it by 1 day! :(

It's been confirmed that they are NOT going to stop selling games, they will be continuing selling them. The reason for the clearance is apparently a full warehouse.

I'm going to scout out the Bunbury store this weekend, then do whatever it takes to get there on Monday morning. Chuck a sickie if I have to. I'll be running straight to the PC accessories section.

This is off the chain!! I'm still a little uncertain with April Fools and all... Could be the best troll ever, but hopefully that FB feedback is legit enough. :P

But I'll be there at 9am grabbing bargains before I start Uni and 10am :P

Mad prices! And the full GH5 kit for $20? Some of the stuff seems to good to be true though, DSi $20 must be a misprint...
