    The new price for The Saboteur is $20, though some stores are slower than others to change the price.

    A bit late now but did anyone else spot the short term Rockstar deals on Steam? I got GTA 1,2,3, Vice City & San Andreas bundled for under a fiver! A pitty that I can't get GTA III or VC to work! Gah! San Andreas works great though, thankfully.

    Incidentally, does anyone else here have the old GTAs on XP? I can't figure out why only San Andreas is working. With Vice City it gets as far as this little intro movie and then I get an "error" window full of code but I can't copy it to clip board as it just freezes until I CtrlAlltDel and cancel the process. I've googled around but can't seem to find anyone else with the same problem.

    Have you tried running it in compatability mode?

    Yes and no joy. I wouldn't expect that to work anyway, GTA 1 & 2 are old so I'd expect problems with them but 3 & VC aren't that old and I am running XP, not Vista or W7. Plus the system requirements say I should be OK. All I can think of is a graphics card/driver incompatibility but since the card is newer than the game it's hard to say.

    Maybe your graphics card is too new. I actually ran into this problem when I picked up the fallout classic games on steam. They just won't work right now matter what I do

    Possibly. Oh well, £5 for just San Andreas is still a good deal. ;)

    Incidentally, I think there is a patch you can get for the old Fallout games, I know for sure I somehow managed to get them both to work on my laptop.

    Amazon is now giving a $20.00 gift card with the pre-order of Red Dead Redemption http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001SH7YMG/ref=oss_product The original pre-order price was $56.99 and had a $10.00 gift card. The Price is now back to $59.99 so I'm assuming folks that had the price locked in at $56.99 will save that extra $3.00 as well. I actually used a $10.00 gift card from another game so mine was $46.99 and now with the $20.00 gift card it makes it a awesomely sweet deal. Amazon rocks!!!

    Game Crazy is going out of business. If one hasn't already closed down near you, they should start liquidating in the next couple weeks.

    Sweet! I'm in dire need of a new 360 controller. My old ones are rather beat up from overuse. :lol:

    Nice. I am going to download steam for my Mac later! I hope they release the other source engine games: I have copies of HL1&2 that I would like to crack open again.
