There are plenty of gaming blogs out there. Who really needs another moron debating the strengths the XBOX 360 vs the PS3 ? Or over-hyping the next title. Nothing wrong with it I guess, but there’s really no point is there.

I’m not really sure about the rest of the world, but here in South Africa, economic factors have us gamers really feeling the pinch. It’s forced many of us to be selective about our gaming purchases.

So the aim of this blog is simple. To hunt the bargain bins, do some clever trading and recommending good bargains.

Primarily I’ll be reviewing older games that are still worth looking at if you missed it. A game will be reviewed if one criteria is made; the game cost me less than R300. I think the point is to compare them to current games and tell you if the R300 will be well spent or if you’re better off saving up for the big thing.

For now, I’ll be reviewing 360 games only, but will hopefully get some contributors to review for some other platforms.

I’ll also post any budget related news, like price drops, big sales etc.

Anyway, that’s all from me. Look forward some interesting retrospective reviews.

    Hope u’ll be getting a ps3 soon so we can get some reviews up for it as well. some ps2 retrospectives could be cool as well.

    Personally i won’t get a PS3. Not for fanboi-ish reasons but simply time and money constraints. 2 consoles will be result in me being broke (already am, hence the site) and single 😉

    I do have some peeps on board who own PS3s who will be writing PS3-centric stuff.

    lol, very true. the website name would kinda be pointless if u have all the consoles.

    hope this becomes the cheapassgamer of south africa
