Possibly a pre-black friday drop. I've got the one from Argos as they do a money back price promise on items bought if it drops on black friday at Argos.
(Price Promise: argos.co.uk/sta…htm)

Amazon seem to be price matching for the switch: amazon.co.uk/2K-…5G3

The PS4 and XBOX versions are also on sale for £34.99 and £35 respectively on amazon.

Ohh. I am tempted now. I have £10 off voucher for Argos and was considering Skyrim but I am getting xenoblade next week which will be my RPG fix. Anyone with Skyrim or this game with feedback on worth getting either? Thanks

Do they not realise they are ruining the covers for switch games with them info tabs about memory or whatever... that sucks.

This Game has micro transactions apparently I'd avoid it.

Seen a thing on ign today. Supposedly a state in America and Belgium are having a go and could forward some legalisation to prevent microtransactions. As they feel it starts gambling in youngsters. Games with microtransactions could also get a 18 rating or 21 years old rating. All having a punt at star wars battlefront 2. Our voices are being heard and companies like EA need to change this foul culture.

If you enjoy basketball then get it, the micro transactions aren’t that bad, I’ve had previous 2K’s and never spent a penny and been fine.

Fifa, madden all have micro transactions, they’re not as bad as Star Wars Battlefront 2

I've always found career mode to be a grind in 2k basketball games you just can't earn enough VC (virtual currency) to progress your character without a massive grind or buy the VC packs.
In my opinion this 2k game is worse than battlefront 2.
Avoid.

I think it was specifically aimed at loot boxes, akin to gambling

I think the outcry over 2K18 is that the developers basically made it so hard to progress that you are forced into paying for VC. Moreso than previous games. Frankly, if that's their attitude, I'll hold on to my money (or get NBA Live 18).

Not nearly as much fun as 2K17, mainly because you can't play on Rookie difficulty in career mode. So if you thought it was a grind previously, it's much much worse now. Even with an 80+ rated player you'll still miss things as simple as lay-ups. Might be OK for the hardcore, but for casual players it's not much fun.

And the much-lauded 'Neighbourhood' is just a time-sapping version of the old menu system to buy upgrades for your player. Previously you just skipped through a menu and clicked' buy', now you need to run through the streets to the relevant store to buy things.

Got the switch version. For handheld basketball it does the job pretty well ^_^
