Found 13th Jun 2016
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has been officially announced by Bethesda, and I'm more than happy and can't wait to get back into it.

I'm taking one for the team. But this is definitely in my price range, granted that lower would be better.

Winner of more than 200 Game of the Year Awards, Skyrim Special Edition brings the epic fantasy to life in stunning detail. The Special Edition includes the critically acclaimed game and add-ons with all-new features like remastered art and effects, volumetric god rays, dynamic depth of field, screen-space reflections, and more. Skyrim Special Edition also brings the full power of PC mods to consoles. New quests, environments, characters, dialogue, armor, weapons and more - with Mods, there are no limits to what you can experience.

According to Base.com and Shopto the standard price is £39.85(99)

EDIT: Credit to lyricalrom, Simply Games have now listed it at £32.85!

I think for a game that's looks to be completely remastered, all DLC included and mod support for consoles, this is a good deal. Heat added.
We need a cheap Skyrim Legendary edition for Steam too so we can get the free upgrade. Prices will probably start going up
Seems a little bit steep for a game that is nearly 5 years old. Don't get me wrong I have no issues with remasters. But they should cost no more than £30 imo. Look at Dead Island sure there not the best games. But they did a decent job at remastering both games. Plus both for £25 or less.

£7.50 at Opium Pulses, seems an alright price. I'm the only one who has never played this game so £7.50 seems like a bargain.

Skyrim amazing game, but I am getting fed up of re-masters. Its just a cheap way to make more money from games, by re-texturing them!
I'll wait for a price drop. Remasters don't hold their price for long.

​so don't buy them.
This explains why Skyrim didn't yet make it to backwards compat. ****.
Heat for the price but as an E3 announcement this was actually dissapointed.

Never played it and probably never will so not judging the game on what it is.
Heat, it doesn't help when every E3 announcement is leaked by the press eager to ruin it for people who don't want spoilers, hard to avoid given they are all over most gaming related websites.

Looking forward to this on PS4 as never played the PS3 version, even though it's sat on my shelf.
my favourite game of all time. I would pay hundreds for it the amount of entertainment I have had from it. played it for a year on 360 then bought a pc so I could mod the hell out of it... 238 hours in and I have only just met paarthanax! I keep getting sidetracked by picking flowers and maxing out my smithing. to me this game is flawless...

1) Nobody is forcing you to buy them (though people clearly do, in massive quantities, otherwise the trend would die off).
2) Generally speaking, well-loved games are remastered for people who never had a chance to play them on their original platforms. They're not remastering bad games (mostly) - I'd take a remaster of a good game over a mediocre new IP any day.
3) The entire game industry is about making money from us! Developers/publishers/retailers aren't doing all this out of the kindness of their stone cold capitalist hearts!
4) Some of the finest games I've played recently have been remasters: Gravity Rush (which many people would never have played without it because, sadly, hardly anyone has a Vita), Resident Evil, The Last of Us, Valkyria Chronicles, DmC, Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin.
5) Remasters are often the cheapest way of buying games with all their added content and fix problems which may have plagued the original without remedy (again, DmC is a good example of that).

I really don't know why people get so upset about it.
Excellant. Well worth the money
And we as the fans asked for this. So no moaning.
never played all the expansion's for this when it was on ps3, so 100+ gaming hours for £34 is a bargain. plus mod support from Bethesda on consoles is gonna give this a massive following
its cheaper on simplygames £32.85

Excellent find. Link here

I've added it to the title and credited you.

no worries op
no one is forcing you to buy a remaster but there should be a way to continue from your 360/ps3 save as it pretty much confirms it won't be BC, and I have unfinished business with it.
guess I'm going to have to set up my 360 and play it on that... even tho it sounds like a hairdryer!
ploughed 217 hours in to this. not sure I can go through that again. think I would have preferred oblivion tbh.
Yeah, as another said, I've plowed over 100 hours into the original...I don't know if I've got it in me to do it again, as much as I'd love to...
Very torn on this! And the Batman Remasters. On one hand, can I be bothered to replay hundreds of hours of the same game, but on the other the fact that they will all (Skyrim in particular) look beautiful remastered!

I agree with other posters they should be £25. A treat for those who haven't played them yet though!

Becareful of ordering from Simply Games, it seems all there games seem to be offered at this exact odd about i mean why £32 & 85p lol

Anyways i pre ordered Doom for ps4 for release day. Paid up and after 3 weeks of hassle i finally got my money back thanks to paypal. no apology or nothing on there part.

Still to this day no game has arrived despite them saying they did send it the day before release. When i asked also why the game kept going out of stick on the site . " oh its common in retail " hmm i don't see many games on other sites going out of stick several times in a day. lol

The customer service is garbage and all you get from them is it if its late send it back and if you complain as far as they are concerned the case is closed wait 10 workings days before going to paypal.

If you get your game your lucky but just shop else where as this £32.85 just seem like a ploy to get your money. probably so they can buy there stock of which they don't have enough to sell.

Sold out now and I missed it

With mods. Didn't they say that with Fallout 4? Still waiting.
I won't post it separately. Base have now dropped to £32.69
Likelihood of me buying it again 100%
Likelihood of me spending over 100 hours on it again 90%
Likelihood of me ever finding all the stones of Barenziah 1%
I was going to buy this, but then I took an arrow in the knee...
can't wait for the release but wonder if price will come down in the meantime...

still, heat from me but may hang on to my money a little longer

It will probably be in the Steam sale in just over a week from now. It usually is.

Oblivion would have been a much bigger development task. They openly admitted last year that they ported this game to the Xbox One and then used that as the basis for developing Fallout 4. I had a feeling that they would release it sooner or later tbh although originally they said it was strictly just a development tool.

The only thing more laughable than the RRP of these "remasters" is how reliably they appear as "bargains" on HUKD.
Never played this on PS3 due to all the reports about frame rate issues so I am so pleased this is getting a remaster and will definitely be preordering this asap. Thanks.

I've used Simply Games, in fact whenever I pre-order a game I used them because they always stretch the interpretation of release date the most and it means I get the game 2 or 3 days early, and if the game is released on a Tuesday I get it on the Friday or Saturday so get the whole weekend beforehand. I've never had an issue with them so never had to deal with their customer service but for me they have been excellent. Sucks your order never turned up but items get lost occasionally in the mail, I don't think they are being dishonest but clearly they could handle your complaint better.

Mods for Fallout 4 been out about 2 weeks on Xbox One. PS4 coming this month I believe.

I don't recall them saying "with mods right this second" so there's no need to be a grump.

They just said early 2016. It's mid June (_;)
Probably a noob question but which mods will we be able to use? I'd like there to be a huge amount of choice!
