Demon's Souls PS3 - GAME Preorders open - £37.99 @ game + Quidco + Reward Points

£37.99

Found 16th Apr 2010
Another Demon's Souls pre-order deal to throw into the hat

GAME have now opened pre-orders, for £37.99

This is a few pennies more, but unlike Amazon and Shopto, GAME pay 6% Quidco on pre-orders, giving you about £2.27 back. You will also get 760 Reward Points (about £1.90 worth). Effectively the game will be costing you just under £34. I managed to use £5 of saved reward points too, knocking off another fiver.

This is the Black Phantom edition (see box image), featuring Guidebook, CD and Artbook, as discussed on the Namco Bandai press release...............from what I read it seems the release run is going to be limited, and this will be the only edition available (at least to begin with).

"Featuring the game, a brand new hardback artbook filled with mesmerizing concept and game art images, a new strategy guide, plus the deeply atmospheric original soundtrack of the game on CD, the limited edition retail pack of Demons Souls is coming exclusively to EMEA and Asia Pacific on June 25, 2010, only for PS3. The European limited launch of Demons Souls can be pre ordered now from Play.com, Game.co.uk, HMV.co.uk and other leading retailers whilst stocks last."

I think Amazon will be the best bet. Simply as they always end up price matching the competition. Game don't always go as low as the others.

PS, not voted hot or cold on this.

Of the three retailers, Shopto are most likely to get the game to you on time (or early), Amazon are the most 'trustworthy', and GAME are the cheapest (after Quidco/Reward Points).

I have pre-orders in at all three places now, to hedge my bets, but will probably end up keeping this one, as it has effectively cost me £28 after deductions.............:thumbsup:

I don't have a game reward card, but i guess it's still cheaper with quidco. I've not decided where to get it yet. I really like shopto fast delivery, but then again i probably wouldn't be playing right away.

Remember and cancel the other ones.

Correct me if im wrong but Amazon and ShopTo both have the phantom edition for less?

Edit: I cant see the strategy guide at amazon anymore?

ordered, and im pretty sure its the black phantom limited edition. im sure namco said tht theyre only releasing tht version first, and once its sold out they will release a standalone version with just the game. ordered from GAME either way as its only cost me £7.99 after i used all the reward point accumilated over the xmas period :P remember kids, ALWAYS give ur relatives ur reward card number for a special treat later down the line

I think what he is trying to highlight that with quidco it is cheaper to purchase from game, plus for reward card holders ther is a further ~£2 off.

Also Amazon is dearer than shopto, yet amazon is hotter.

Ah the cover actually says Black Phantom even tho it is not in the title, sorry for that

Did Amazon remove the picture with that strategy guide?

Exactly. Thanks for that.

This is a better deal if you use Quidco, and even more so if you have a Reward Card. :thumbsup:

If you look at the box image on GAME, you can see that this is the Black Phantom edition (which includes all the nice bits and bobs)

Ok, sorry for questioning the deal flamingcarrot, i was confused by that later picture that amazon had at first :roll:

I'll be sticking with amazon for now as i live in France and im yet to determine the safest way to get it.
I never got my gow3 from hmv.... and even tho i havent had problems with game before at the moment i am missing one package :x

Edit: voted hot

The review names the game as the Black Phantom Edition ]http//uk…3B0

Wikipedia has the low down on this game ]http//en…uls

Voting cold - Because with Game you're taking a gamble wether or not this game will be sealed or wrecked - even though it's a new game I'm still not going to take that gamble.

]Amazon all the way!!

Very constructive, thanks. I am sure that GAME will not be sending out pre-owned copies of a game that hasn't yet been released. :roll:

I sometimes wish that you could -rep and not just add it. I think people would be a little more cautious.

No problem -although I didn't say it will be pre-owned stock :thumbsup:

Like I said - it's a gamble. Will not be pre-owned but might be stock destined for store, it might be an employees game etc with seals ripped off and he just didn't like it and their own seals put on. It might have come from Mars and lost all it's seals on re-entry to the earth and Game have re-sealed it (minus the DLC code's)..

Either way Game don't care what stock they send out to you. Amazon do.

Game = Gamble

I have made over 20 orders from GAME in the last 12 months, and only had an issue with one game not being as described. I have also bought a few pre-owned titles from them recently, and they have all been in mint condition. Make of that what you will.

Was this not more of an issue with the easter sale. Which i believe they are offering refunds for. I haven't had any issues buying online with game. All my orders have came sealed and unmarked, that being said i've only purchased about a dozen item from them, so maybe i've not made enough purchases to have came across this issue.

Instore i usually ask for a sealed copy, i find the staff are more than welcome to oblige me in my request. Although, again i have made very few purchases.

The link was yes - but the rest of the comments still stand. In general they don't care what gets sent out. :thumbsup:

Yeah I undertand what you're saying - however 1 game out of 20 not as described, excuse me but they should ALL be as described!

Out of the 40 odd games I've ordered from game/gameplay/gamestation (all same company) at least 20 of them have been pre-owned/old store stock.

Out of ALL 50+ games I've ordered from Amazon over the years and formats they've ALL been as described and that's NEW.

Game cannot be trusted anymore and that's why this deal won't get as hot as the Amazon deal

This is not the first time and I bet not the last time it happened to me or one of my friends with Game Group (Game, GameStation, GamePlay) :-( If I can I will try to order in the future from a different retailer!

Anyway I still voted hot for the price. I prefer The Hut Group and ShopTo.

Best price atm is anyway at Zavvi:

zavvi.com/gam…tml

You can get £2 off using voucher or add something in value over £3.05 and get £4 off ;-)

Yikes! It's getting cheaper and cheaper........

I'm going to stick to GAME though myself, as I managed to use reward points to get a fiver off. With the Quidco as well, it is still the best price for me.

Are you going to post the Zavvi price as a deal? I would, but after all the griping and moaning that has gone one in this thread, I can't be bothered.
