Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for Nintendo Switch digital download cheaper £43.70 at CDKeys

Still lots of money for a game and I know that you could get the cartridge copy from Tesco for £37 with the £5 off code, but I wanted digital so I don't have to swap cartridges around the games like this I'll play often.
Use the Facebook 5% off code to get it for £43.70 which gets it to the price that most shops sell the physical copy.
It's just annoying that digital downloads costs so much more than physical so I'll be sticking to retail for most I think!

still expensive overall though and for anyone that owned it on wii u it's much the same game not a real sequel. Still a good game but one must consider that the core of the game is getting on two years old now so a bit rich of Nintendo to re-release it at full rrp...

It does include all the DLC and has additional modes though. Not that I'm defending it, I'd rather have the physical edition and have the option to trade.

Yep, it's a lot but it's still a fantastic game and one of the most fun portable games I've ever played. I'll want the option to trade most games but a do t think Mario Kart is a game I'll be getting rid of.
Because of the way nintendo games tend to hold some value physical is always preferable. Imo.

I can see the appeal of physical but for me, the price is currently the best option for me. I know this is a very cold deal for most, but hope it helps some folk that want the digital version like me
can you share digital switch games like the ps4 and Xbox one?

Because Microsoft and Sony always charge less for digital compared to physical

Mostly yes, PS1 classics were often £2. Nintendo charging £5 for NES games that don't even stay on a digital record..lame
Can't believe this went cold when the next best price is £49.99. I mean I'm not happy about having to buy it again after having it digital+DLC on WiiU but this is a great deal for those of us who want it.

Pretty muc why it went cold, it's a full price re-release, albeit enhanced and a big screw you to anyone loyal enough to buy the full game and all dlc on the wii u as there is no incentive whatsoever for wii u owners to get the switch version, great way to reward loyalty Nintendo (_;)

Yep, I couldn't understand the cold, it's the best price I could find and although I would love it cheaper, it's just not happening at the moment. I wanted it digital, and this was the cheapest

It just seems messed up to hide a good deal and have people pay the 12.6% higher price because some of us had already bought the original game on WiiU or you would prefer to buy physical.

There is still incentive to re-buy purely to have the game on Switch like I did and the game is reportedly selling better than the original, so why hide the deal and have people who are going to buy it anyway pay more. It's just stupid and petty voting it cold.
