    there is loads of good deals these past few weeks, guess its a way of saving money, why lower console prices when game prices are falling

    possible USA also
    the EUR eshop always gets posted on Monday, though it doesn't go live until Thursday
    USA normally get similar or same deals, but you dont find out until Thursday

    And when I thought Gunman Clive wasn't already an underpriced gem, it gets even cheaper!

    The world that never was
    Going to pick up Gunman Clive and maybe Nano Assault Neo (which by the way you forgot to add), in that case! ^_^ Gotta love discounts.

    Agreed!

    They should discount downloadable retail games, not indie games.

    That are mostly third-party games. The only Nintendo game I know of that has been discounted for I think a week was Ocarina of Time 3D. I want those €45 full-price retail games discounted.

    Yeah same here, but they probably wont... the sale is something to do with the iDÉAME conference, which explains why the games discounted are indie.

    retail games here cost around 60~65 euros, and rarely they get discounted, for me buying through the eshop is way cheaper
