Discountoid: Sports games, Guitar Hero and more!

Time again to round up some of the week's better bargains.

Things have been a little slow as of late, but they appear to be picking up again. Amazon has several of the 2K sports games at strong savings and a few other titles at deep discounts. Best Buy is still running a little on the weak side, focusing on DS and Wii titles, but Call of Duty: World at War could be grabbed while keeping Hamilton in your pocket a little longer. They also have the wireless Les Paul guitar controller for 360 at fifty percent off with a further $10 savings if you buy Guitar Hero: Metallica.

Fry's Electronics has returned to Discountoid with their characteristic one game worth having, but it's a good deal nonetheless. Grab the new Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles for Wii at a nice savings. Target also seems to be focusing on Guitar Hero, putting several iterations on sale.

Finally, if you've been holding out on getting Madden 07 for your PlayStation 2, GameStop has you covered by putting it at a phenomenal $5. No, that's not a typo. I can only assume that they're gearing up for their massive, annual Game Days sale next week and just decided to blow this one off.

All the deals, as usual, lie in wait after the jump. Going to be picking anything up this week?
