    Dunno if this has been brought up before, but what about a sub-forum for Gaming deals?

    The idea is to have users post deals/sales on games/consoles that they find online or at retail. The forum could be further divided into areas based on geographic location (ie. country (USA) or continent (North America)) if the deal is region specific.

    The trading forum is great and all, but I'm sure there are people who want to buy stuff from a store and/or see gaming deals in one place without leaving the 'temp.

    I forgot
    Gaming deals would fit fine under the Games/Console subforums for whatever console, we don't need a whole new subforum when only a few topics would be posted in it.

    Sort of like CAG's? I'd like to see that implemented, but I don't think it'd be that popular.

    It was discussed, there's no point seeing as other sites can/have and providing this service which we won't be anywhere close to matching.

    Not to mention the unnecessary moderation required and potential for spam/self promotion/affiliation links being thrown about in mass.
