Skyrim Download £14.99 @ XBLA

Found 21st Feb 2013
Go to Xbox live marketplace and download Skyrim for £14.99.
Oblivion also £8.99.

If you got 160+ MS Points you can get this for £11.98

The UK version of the Xbox Live website lead me onto the US one, my prices are correct here though.

If you're voting cold please tell me where to get even a pre-owned copy of this cheaper as I am buying this tomorrow.

I have already used my Blockbuster Marketplace £5 off code. But then again why do I want a scratched up to s**t disk for a game I want to keep?

I didn't see it? Got a link?

True but surely £14.99 equates to 1600/1800 points surely you couldn't buy that many points for cheaper than £11.25 (obviously if you have spare from a Tesco deal or something I then I totally agree)

Link was removed... if you look you will find it

I done a price search and got £12.00 cheapest and that is an Italian version, not sure if that makes a difference?

I wanted to keep this game, and I have 320gb hardrive - so digital will be fine for me.

Install is around 3.7gb so hardly a massive amount. Also, generally looks better? I can't say I look at my game collection and think about how nice it's looking.

On the shelf

You'll find these (Skyrim download codes) on ebay frequently as the xbox slim packs come with it and Forza Essentials (a very cut down version of Forza 4). I was buying another xbox the other day and looking at deal packages which came with games which I could sell on (we have tons of games already - house full of gamers and multiple xboxs).

These codes were selling on ebay for £6 (& a bit) and Forza E. for not much more (so I went with a different package). Obviously demand dictates price, so with this being featured on here the cheapest BIN ones will have gone, and the basement price is higher. If you wait a few days a load more will appear on ebay (the Forza/Skrim packs are available everywhere. When I looked the other day they were in PCW, Blockbusters and Game in the same shopping centre, sometimes with an extra game, but still the same basic package).

Having said that; no question this game is worth £15 of anyone's money (my personal opinion, for what its worth, is that it's better than Oblivion, but not as good as Morrowind). There's 100s of hours of gaming to be had from it. If possible (if you have a gaming PC too), pick it up for PC instead (preferably in a Steam sale). There is tons of free extra content and mods which you can install straight from Steam, much of it is better than the DLC (which you have to pay for).

Better to buy digital copy

Don't care about reselling it. It's Skyrim, I'm keeping it.
Don't care about 'massive' amount of memory space (3.6gb of my 320GB HD? bothered?)
Loads quicker
Saves messing about with discs
Cannot break/lose digital copies (cheers danhufc :P )
Can play it anywhere you have an xbox with internet as you can just sign in/redownload it without having to cart around your discs.
Generally looks better? What? I'm playing a game, not entering a fashion parade. The only difference to the actual game in any way is that it loads quicker from digital copy than disc copy.

Fair point, edited :P

Anyone know if digital downloads will transfer over from the 360 to the next generation Xbox?

Nobody has a definite answer, however, logic says it would be *very* unlikely.

I'll go out on a limb and say they won't. the Xbox 360 was a triple-core PowerPC processor if I remember (I don't have one) and I am sure that the new Xbox will be x86 based (almost certainly AMD processor/APU like the PS4). The change in processor architecture would mean that the old/existing software would have to be run inside a software emulator. The processing power that you would need to emulate a Xbox 360 at full speed would probably be prohibitively expensive to put in the new Xbox. It's why the PS4 has this 'streaming' setup for previous generation titles... which also sounds terrible, but is a workaround this very problem.

When Skyrim first came out Betheda advised against installing it on your hard drive (I normally do this for a game I'm playing a lot, reduces load times) because it was making the resolution more 'choppy'. It may have been addressed but I haven't heard anything if it has. This might be where Havince is coming from. Anyone know any different?
