£14.98

Found 21st May 2010
Ok it's definitely new, and the guy serving did not bat an eyelid (he even check their Game computer and carried on the sale) so it may not be a misprice. It's still vastly more even pre-owned so fill your boots

Mmmmm.

Proof me thinks.

If this is not a mis-price, &/or a slack sales representative, and is available in more than one GAME store (with multiple stock items) then it deserves some heat.

If it is a one-off &/or only available at one Store then it doesn't.

I'll reserve judgement until I have visited at least one GAME store.

Thanks for listing the deal though.

BFN,

Might want to add it's from GAME in your title.

I would post my receipt but I think the pic should be enough proof? Don't think it's online however.

wow this is scorching hot, paid £30 for it, have still not got around to playing it :-(

Just rang game in MK. £34.98 in the sale. This must of been a miss price

Not at any of my 5 nearest. 1 off or miss-price.

The issue is that time & time again we find deal listings for items that are very limited in supply in one particular Store or in one very small region of the UK.

The deals are voted "hot" by those just reading the opening thread comment & reach very high levels of temperature when only one or two people have bought the item listed at the price quoted.

Do not doubt that you where lucky enough to get a mis-price but that does not make it a hot deal for the rest of us as I would bet that this is an isolated incident :oops:

Kudos to you for posting and enjoy your game

Was in both Brighton GAME stores today and definately did not see this - was £39.99.

Just phoned up Hayes Retail Park's Game store, they said it was actually on sale - for £34.98


OP, you got a cracking deal, if you bought one.

Hmm, maybe I did then. It's very unlike Game round here to misprice and then honour but if everyone is getting the same price then I guess I got lucky? FWIW, I did get it in a Debenhams concession.

Think I missed it, but which store did you get this price at?

I've been in there a few times... never seems to be very busy. I also do not see an advantage to having the concession considering the larger, main GAME store is not more than 5 minutes walk away.

Maybe this is one of the "branches" closing so they are selling off stock cheap(er) than their main branch counterparts.

Either way, as discussed, you found a good deal.

Hope you like the game.

I don't doubt the deal, however, you have taken the picture instore, against a backdrop of pre owned games, which are also showing as £14.98. I suspect you may have inadvertently picked up a pre-owned game, which may have been missing the pre owned label from it.

Perhaps you should have taken the picture of the game and receipt together, however I'm not too fussed. Hot if it is that price.

No that was just the most discreet place

Check your receipt mate...

If it says £34.98 then the £20.00 was manually discounted, then its a misprice, or, store specific (It will have the reason - Head office authorisation, student discount, pricing error etc on the receipt) if it scanned at £14.98...I will be amazed :P
