Yeah I did. I've had it two weeks tomorrow, still going strong. :P
I got it with Borderlands 2 from Game for £159.99 new, they gave me a £10 off anything in store voucher as well, so I got Syndicate for £2.98 I was pretty happy that day.
Well if you're quick enough you can make almost all of your money back with new releases. I tend not to purchase most games at full price though, though there are some exceptions like F1 2012.
Ah, 2013 is going to be a strange year for F1. Lewis Hamilton driving for Mercedes AMG (Biggest mistake of his career IMO.), Schumacher retiring again (Doesn't come as a surprise though.) And Sergio Perez driving for McLaren in Hamilton's place! Should be a good year anyway.
I'll have a shiny new one tomorrow and all will be well. I haven't lost anything, well except for some money. :P
