Possible price error on this, seems to be about £80.00 most places.
Could just be wrong image!?
Explorer edition is game and season pass.
Edit.
Can now confirm it is the explorer edition, I contacted customer services and they confirmed image is correct and it is the game and season pass.

obviously used the wrong image so no misprice sherlock
Cold for that rude comment
Seems 44.99 at most places.... Game, argos.
For those who want it. Google the game PS4.... Shopping.... It'd 40.99 from eBay for a sealed new one.
Personally I don't know anything about the game. Not sure if it's meant to be good etc.

Agree with the other comments. There is no need to be rude and I was advising others on how to find it. Voted cold also now. No need to be rude. I'd advise learning some peoples skills.
Downvoted not just due to comments but because the producers of the game have doubled the price from the digital prices which it's been for the last 2 years to this.

I don't understand why if you're going to make an online game of this size with rolling updates sell it cheap off the bat and have a low subscription model (first month free, £3-5 a month to cover updates and overheads should just about cover it), would be far more popular and supported rather than go £40-£80 to get the same game someone paid £20 for 2/3 months ago on PSN.

If anything that reeks of either greed or desperation by the producers (most likely the former). Um...soz for rant lol. I've spoken to a few people who've played it since the start and they all speak very highly of the game itself and how it's improved from the start; maybe I'm just looking too much into this.

I am not voting this cold or hot just want to advise anyone thinking of buying this game. I have been playing this game since it as released digitally on PSN last December. The game was in a poor state then. Laggy and unplayable at time. Game crashes atleast 2 or 3 times everytime you play. Dinos vanish from the game, fall through the floors. I would compare this game to looking for a used car. You see a car its nice on the outside looks in good nick. You go round the side realise a wheel is missing. Then you look inside there is a hole in the car floor. Looks can be deceptive wtih a game. The devs can not be trusted look at the way the wiping of servers have been handled. However if you can over look how crappy the game runs (its the worst frame rate maybe one every 5 secs at some points). then you can have fun building bases, riding dinos, breeding. Getting up and loosing sleep because your dinos need feeding and imprinting. Unless the devs have saved a magic patch to fix how crap the game runs I would not advise buying it. I quit a few days ago after the server fiasco and not customer support.

Subscription model really does not work on the PS4 or more games would use it. There will not be enough new content added in the future to justify a subscription. I would rather pay £40 upfront then decide what DLC I buy in the future than a constant fee every month which after a few months you end up paying more than if you just bought a game at £40. Final fantasy is £10 a month plus you got the cost of the game.

The price increase you are reffering to is on the PC and its been available dirt cheap during the last 2 years I got it for £7. Not sure how many new players it will actually get on release. A lot of games which are in EA increase in price just theres have been more dramatic. The maret will dictate whether people pay the increased price on PC. If you see it constantly on sale like before then no ones biting at those increased prices.
Good opportunity to get the game cheap, even if you want sell the season pass.
Voted cold purely for the appalling attitude. Costs nothing to be polite.

That's a bit of a poor response, didn't even offer a refund. Guessing you can probably return it anyway, but they should pay the carriage.

Oh yeah it came with a prepaid label anyway I sent it back today

Think I came out a bit better on this. They took 2 weeks of terrible customer service and unresponsiveness to tell me they don't stock it, then gave me £50 to cover the season pass and compensation for the length of time it took.
