Good to see another third party game actually being sold at the same price as PS4/XB1 instead of being £10 dearer.
I envy anyone getting to play this for the first time. Enjoy, you lucky souls!

It does but you have to ask Amazon to refund retrospectively. They confirmed to me all pre-orders will still qualify for the saving.

Yeah, but you can play it on the bog!

OHHHH, Like busses
I really hope this is a decent port. From software aren't the greatest when it comes to that though.

Just got onto amazon customer service and they have confirmed I will get the £2 back after the item is dispatched. Thanks for brining this up as I didn't know this was a thing!

Namco Bandai revealed the game at the same price across all platforms so it's odd to see Amazon charging £1.99 more for this than the PS4 version.
Will get digital as I'd never take the cartridge out of the system heat though

tbh, you dont even need to mail them, They will automatically fix it near launch.

I agree! Any idea of the digital price?

39.99 is the official RRP so would be shocked if it's more.

Yes I would personally, but I don't own any physical games I just wait for digital sales and CD Keys. £39.99 would stretch it for me but DeS, DaS and Bloodborne are the most re-playable games I've ever owned.

The Switch cases and carts are gorgeous and cheaper but I just don't have space for them
Prefer physical any day of the week - that way it has a re-sale value, can lend it out etc. Also if you have 2 machines (His & Hers) easy to play physical otherwise only 1 machine can host the account that has the games.

Digital you never really own and cant understand why you cant re-sell your digital version considering it is YOURS!

They need to amend the law on digital ownership - if for any reason a company decides to ban (it does happen! google Amazon bans) than any digital items you have hosted by them is blocked/gone. That just seems wrong considering you have paid full price but never actually have full ownership.

As for the deal - price seems better than usual - Play Asia.

i agree, bill gates let the cat out of the bag years ago about the way things would evolve and that it would be a license to use rather than ownership, the companies have been telling us this in their terms of use agreements they get us to read or skip through

It is going to be 60fps 1080p in docked mode, and 30fps handheld I'm sure I read somewhere yesterday?
I really wanted to buy this on the Switch, but I think it's best to wait for some gameplay footage or reviews, because Dark Souls on the XBox 360 was locked at 30 fps, which was not an issue, but it dropped under 30 pretty often.

Yep. This is the only reason I don't want to play it on Switch. Truly frustrating because I was so excited when I heard it was coming out on Switch, too. The 30fps is such a huge drawback for me when I'm used to playing Dark Souls III on PC @ 60fps. PC version it is..

If it runs at 30FPS on the Switch as well as the 360, does that necessarily mean it will drop below 30 often as well? Genuinely curious.
Breath of the wild drops under 30 fps quite often; great game, by all means. If Dark Souls performs poorly on the Switch, I wouldn't rush to pre-order, since the original game had some serious frame-rate issues and, if I wouldn't like to experience that again. Let's hope it'll be fine.

Was just reading the announcement on the Nintendo News section of the Switch UI, it talks of the Solaire amiibo. But it also mentions a "Network Test";

"Before launch, there's going to be a Network Test, so players can try the game. If this will be your first Dark Souls experience, welcome to a brave new world! Stay tuned for more details."

It sounds like it will be a good opportunity to test out the port before it launches on May 25th.
Cheapest i've seen this for the Switch. I'll be buying it on my PS4 for the better framerate and to wrap up the complete collection of trophies... that and I don't want to rage snap my switch into two pieces.
Great price. Cancelled Shopto in favour of this.

If it comes out digitally for £29.99 I'd cancel this as well!

Only available for pre-order on the Japanese store at the moment and that works out at about £31.12 (not that you can use the Japanese store without some serious work arounds or overbuying nintendo points cards)
They announced a free network test (along with a Solaire of Astora Amiibo) in the last Direct. I'm going to put in a pre-order at this price and if i'm not impressed it's very easy to cancel.
Finally a way to show my rage issues to other people outside the house!

Just need Amazon to stock the amiibo now!
For all those that pre-ordered this game from amazon before they included the Prime discount, you will need to contact them to get your £2 discount otherwise you will be charged £29.99 at its current price rather than £27.99.
Something to be aware of here guys The Switch version isn't going to as 'High spec' as the PS4 and X-Box version

"Visuals and performance for Dark Souls Remastered will differ depending on the platform you’re playing on. All platforms support 1080p/60fps with the exception of Nintendo Switch which is capped at 30fps with graphics ‘tailored’ for the system.

PS4 Pro and Xbox One X will both support 4K resolutions while all platforms are sporting dedicated servers for online play."

Having seen the gameplay for this I am very disappointed. Will be cool to play it on the go on the Switch though.

To be fair, most of or if not all people that own a switch will most likely be aware that it definitely will not be on par with xbox one/ps4 and I pretty much expected its fps to be locked at a low rate to make it fluid and consistent. Definately good though that you pointed that out for those that are not tech minded.

It put me off getting it on the switch to be honest so thought worth mentioning. Normally graphics dont bother me but if it's a remaster then i personal would want to expierence it in all it's glory

Alternatively you can just reorder and it will apply the discount. A lot faster.
