The excitement of Dick Smith Electronic's game sale yesterday was, in many ways, off-set by the anger from customers who felt that they'd lined up for nothing. The Dick Smith sale was characterised by miscommunication: from when the sale was meant to begin, to what was actually available and in stock, to how much people could buy.

Dick Smith has now confirmed plans for a "massive $7 million gaming clearance" starting April 2nd, after leaked price sheets emerged today. The retailer hasn't confirmed if the prices are indeed correct, but so far, it hasn't denied them either. I'm talking about PSPs ($40), Xbox 360 250GB Slim ($100), Nintendo DSis (starting from $20), Super Smash Bro. Brawl ($15), Assassin’s Creed 2 for 360 ($5), and more.

JB Hi-Fi's having one of those sale things today, starting from 9am and ending 5pm today. The news was sent out via the company's newsletter, but it's also painted in bright yellow and white on their website's front page and, no doubt, advertised in-store.
