    The thing is, you can still pick up the Civ4 complete back for under a tenner from jersey. And I'd be tempted by civ3, but there's not really much reason when you can get civ4 that cheaply anyway.

    This is only really good news while the pound is weak against the dollar, assuming these aren't final prices.

    You can only see it through your browser right now, and I assume you will until it comes out of beta.

    A lot of prices are looking quite competitive now.

    Ooo those are good price drops. Nice to see that our country going to crap means that we can buy affordable games off steam lol

    It's a welcomed addition although this has taken freaking ages.

    Thank God we've got it... almost... in the end.

    Some nice savings there, good news about the VAT being included in the price on the item page as well.

    I would urge anyone with a passing interest in stratagy games to get the Civilization 4 Complete pack now. It converted me into a turn based whore :(.
