Having downloaded the just cause 2 demo, I thought buy it. I looked on the gamestation website and found the pc version to be £25. a not insignificant amount of money but I decided to go into town to buy it.
When I got to the shop it was £35. I enquired to the lad behind the counter and he said yeah, that's the internet price..they are cheaper.
I've read before about high street stores and their websites being run as separate concerns but surely this behaviour is taking the **** somewhat? I've had a quick look at their website and I cant see anywhere which says the prices are different instore to the website. They do display a rrp but no instore price.
In this case the customer wins cos they can whistle for my custom. I am about to order it via amazon instead.
Does this kind of thing happen in other parts of the world? I'm sure they wouldn't stand for it in the US. :-(
