Edited by:"musicskypirate"Found 13th Oct
New deal from GAME with some decent games this time around rather than the Lego games that I don't really want. Fairly decent deal that I might consider this weekend.

Tweeted to me via @GAMEKingston. Unsure if it's available nationwide.

Update: Game is indeed a physical edition. They have to manually apply the extra discount though so keep an eye on your receipt! According to staff at Kingston it is meant to be Nationwide. Best to ask staff in store to double check.

If they was lobbing a Pro Controller in for this price I'd be half tempted but one of three games which I already own on Wii U ain't worth a rub, I'm sorry it just ain't. Oh and before I get the predictable onslaught, Splatoon 1.5 might be a bit different but it's no way a fully fledged sequel is it?

I think the only better offer I've seen is via Very.co.uk if you are a first time customer with 10% off... but that leaves a lot more effort and potential drama if something goes wrong compared to GAME.

Better waiting until 'Mario Shart' is released. Mario eats an out of date mushroom and must get to the toilet in Bowser's castle. Should be a great game.

I did this deal for the switch and got 20% off saving £64. Had to ask for the extra 10% as they only gave me 10 to begin with, but customer service was great and sorted it over the phone. Console arrived a few days later. Well pleased with it!

They only offered me 10% so I told them to close my account, they then gave me 20% and waivered the postage charge.

is game trying to sell at this price before the better christmas deals kick in? just a thought
Edited by: "Rukanau" 13th Oct

I think this could be store specific, visited Edinburgh Cameron Toll branch and discovered the following...no signage up, when I asked the staff they knew nothing about the offer however when they checked their daily sheet there are a few new package deals - Switch with 1 first party Nintendo game - Zelda, Mario Kart or Splatoon are all £310. There are cheaper prices for third party games like Rayman Legends or Lego Worlds with a Switch I think they said it was £280-90 or you can get both for £299.99, those deals are on their website at the moment. Website is currently out of stock for any Zelda packages and Mario Kart or Splatoon are £309.99. Rayman is £25.99 at Smyths and Lego is £21.85 at Base so the deal isn't that great unless you really want those games. Personally I'm going to leave it for now, holding out for it with one of the top games for £280ish.

If it was the console with the three games and 2 pro controllers I would have bought it instead of the PS4.
Because if Sony can sell a PS4 + 4 games + 2 controllers for £229, well surely Nintendo can do the same with the Switch for £70 more.

Great deals, got mine last week from Very

Device itself is solid, Screen is bright and 720p is well suited for the size

Got Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 and Zelda

Truly the one to get in this deal is Zelda

I have called GAME, and despite on the website theres no stock of the switch with zelda, somehow they have 8 of them on my nearest store.
Going to collect it tomorrow. However I am going to ask about this discount because it seems the price is 309.99

when and where did you get this deal? I missed it 😣

If you're getting this bundle, get Zelda for the biggest savings

Oh my days for a minute there I thought it was with all three games! I was like.. show me where to sign no such luck but still a good deal I'm getting one of these soon wish I'd got one instead of the destiny edition ps4 pro I bought the other week :s

Yes but next year. Hopefully it will be nearer the price it's worth so around £200.

Really? The ps4 has an absolutely vast back catalogue of excellent games that you can pick up for under a tenner. This has 2 or 3 good games that are still over £40. I think you made the right choice.

honestly disagree, I love my ps4, i do. if i was given an ultimatum of only owning 1, switch would win.

the switch is far more fun to play. Obviously makes ps4 feel so inconveniant too. I found myself buying games i wouldn't normally buy and loving them. if you own one, you want to play everything on it.

a huge downside to modern gaming, is the insanely long loading times. switch makes that even more painfully obviously, because everything is super quick.

also strongly diagree with the only 2-3 games line. of the 8 big first party titles launched, 7 of them are fantastic and would genuinely recommend those to any owner. yeah some would say 3 are wii u titles. they're great games & still the best versions of the game, with excluisve content & chances are most didn't own a wii u,even if you did very small number would've owned all 3.

plus every single smaller game is more fun on switch, sonic mania, stardew valley etc. then you get things like golf story. almost makes you want to buy everything, cause you know you'll enjoy it.

it's refreshed my love of gaming.

Hang on run that by me again, did you just say these most of these Switch zealots are so devoted to the Nintendo faith they didn't even own a Wii U?

You don't say

sarcasm on the internet doesn't translate very well does it, not a stab at you just an observation.

I worry Mario is just going to be Zelda again (I found it awfully repetitive), using the same engine (Unreal engine 4) with Mario textures grafted on

I'm not anti Nintendo I still own and use a Wii U but for me right now the Switch it is just to expensive. I'm hoping they bring out a more powerful console only version as I would be paying for a screen and battery that I wouldn't use. I agree about Nintendo games being fun I play lots of Mario Kart and other Mario games on the Wii U and even the wife plays them now and again.

Is it worth getting one for Xmas soon? How bad will the stock get of these? I'm just a bit wary of it sitting in a cupboard for over two months if there turns out to be something wrong or if it gets a lot cheaper.. I do want it from game though, I need to trade in quite a lot of stuff to the point I'll have easily two hundred quid credit anyway

Mario Kart Wii and 3DS still command high prices
