There are two ways that you can approach Christmas present shopping this year: One, go to your local mall and fight the crowds, trying to snag a bargain; or two, let the bargains come straight to your doorstep by shopping online. While most of the best prices come from online retailers overseas, it's not fair to write off the local retailers quite yet. Next Monday sees EB Games launch its online-only Mad Monday sale, which will see the retailer offer various discounts on games throughout the day. Retail giant Harvey Norman even made it into the roundup this week, demonstrating that you can still find good bargains close to home.
Remember, bargain hunting is a communal activity, and there's a thread over on the GameSpot AU forums dedicated to finding cheap games. If you spot a good deal online or at a store, be sure to jump in and tell your fellow GameSpotters. Even if you're new to the forums, pop in and say hi!
