OK, so I can't remember the name of the site (name's on the tip of my tongue, but can't remember), but a couple years ago a site was popular on this board that held sales on random things, with a limited quantity, and as soon as one item sold out, a new one would be listed. The sale lasted as long as it took to sell out on the item, so that could be 3 minutes or 3 hours.

So yeah... GOG is doing that with random games. As I write this, Duke Nukem 3D Atomic Edition is $1.50, with 74 copies left. It'll probably be gone by the time this is posted, but a new game will replace it. Take a look if you're interested...

EDIT: I believe the site I was thinking of was woot.com - they held lightning sales like this all the time.

Remember last year when they gave it away free for 3 days or so? I got in on that.

They just had populous for free, but it it was gone within a second. It looks like they also had Omerta, Tropico 3, and Shelter for free at various points.

Yah, seems crazy. Potentially good deals though. Better than 6 hour flash sales.

Wow, Ultima 7 was gone in about three seconds. I have a feeling people with fast Internet speeds have the clear advantage here.
