Yeah its nationwide. The game isn't a brick without a micro sd card btw. You can still play the game its just
1. Not updated, so Kyrie Irving isn't at the Celtics yet etc.
2. You can only play exhibition mode.

When you have an micro sd card it then becomes the full feature game like the ps4/xb1.

And its not even close to being broken like WWE

Just goes to show that publishers charging £40/£50 and claiming "it's the price of the carts, not us!" is pure marketing BS. Presumably this game is not being sold at a loss? And has a heft 16Gb cart if I'm not mistaken. Should be 32Gb, but that's another argument entirely!

Not really. It's a case of a retailer taking a hit to clear old stock rather than the publisher putting the price down across the board. Still full price elsewhere in other retailers.
Got a £10 off a £20 spend voucher for TRU, might get that for my son to try.

"Old stock"? It was only released 5 months ago!!!

"Taking a hit"? I'd be extremely surprised to find they were losing money on every unit.

Naaah, it's the old Switch tax kicking in. If they think they can charge £40/£50 and get away with it they will. As the console gets more and more games, with a better choice, games like this will be selling for £20/£30. I've no doubt other retailers will lower their prices on this game in the coming months.

Of course retailers will reduce. Advertising for NBA 2k19 will start in a few months and the demand for the 18 version will plummet, much as the same for most annual sports titles. Toys R Us are just ahead of the game in comparison to other retailers. It'll never be £20/£30 on day one for an annual franchise.

I think you're making my point for me?!

Remember, my original complaint was that Switch games usually get released at £40/£50, and usually £10 more than XOne/PS4 equivalents. Publishers says it's because of cart costs. I say that's rubbish. This deal proves it. £25 and you admit other retailers will follow suit. Well, they're making money on £25, so no need for £40/£50 original prices. They only do it because they know they can get away with it.
