This is the best price that I've yet seen for The Witcher III - which is easily one of the best games this year!

Blurb from the listing:
---------
Dedicated to gamers who want more from physical box editions of games than just the disc and manual, containing premium items prepared by the developers, this edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the definitive answer for those gamers who want to enter the Witcher universe with style.

The Game.
An exclusive CD with the official soundtrack.
The official, developer-created "Witcher Universe - The Compendium".
A beautiful, detailed map of the in-game world.
A set of unique The Witcher 3 stickers.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a story-driven, next-generation open world role-playing game, set in a graphically stunning fantasy universe, full of meaningful choices and impactful consequences. In The Witcher, you play as Geralt of Rivia, one of a dying caste of monster hunters, and embark on an epic journey in a war-ravaged world that will inevitably lead you to confront a foe darker than anything humanity has faced so far—the Wild Hunt.

The world burns as the Empire of Nilfgaard pierces through the heart of the kingdoms in the north. Geralt of Rivia is pursued by an enemy devoid of mercy—the Wild Hunt, a mythical cavalcade of ghastly riders, harbingers of doom and destruction, capable of destroying entire settlements overnight. Driven by a deeply personal agenda, Geralt must navigate a maze of hostile forces to find and protect the one described in an ancient prophecy. Gritty and merciless, the world the adventure plays out in sets new standards in terms of size, ecosystem complexity and meaningful non-linearity. Experience realistic day and night cycles, observe weather changes that influence gameplay, and conquer the lush environment using arcane witcher lore.

Evolve unique witcher skills to tailor gameplay to your liking; hunt bloodthirsty monsters and develop your signature fighting strategies; use potent battle magic, and slay your way to victory in a truly limitless open world. Stroll, swim, ride and sail; embark on legendary quests and collect epic bounties. Take control: go anywhere, do anything!

The promotional code "WELCOME" may work for a further 10% discount for new accounts, though I've not tested this. "ZVC5" does not appear to work here.
Seems strangely cheap for Zavvi. Heat added

This, by a *very* long way. It's a better game and, as a bonus, is about half the price.

After buying this, the Hearts of Stone expansion (or the Expansion Pass) should be your very next purchase. Once you're done with these, then would be the time to start thinking about Fallout 4.

I've just bought this for myself for christmas. My back log is disgustingly huge, I've got W1 and W2 on Steam and haven't even started them. I haven't finished GTA 5 or Arkham Knight. I haven't started the Uncharted collection or MGSV. Even Wolfenstien is still sealed. I get home from work and sit looking at the TV, the web or mindlessly play F1 2015 or Fifa. What the hell is going on. Am I the only one..?

You're certainly not the only one with a backlog.

You're not helping yourself with F1 or FIFA, though - and there are *much* better experiences out there if you put those down and explore a bit more widely

I understand what you're saying but they're just so easy to just boot up and mindlessly play. I can't be bothered to have to keep up with plots and storylines.. Which is incredibly lazy I know.. I do WANT to get into these games, They're obviously superb, I just have no motivation, lol

Hmmm... how about putting the FIFA and F1 discs somewhere to the other side of your house/flat from your console? Or even giving them to a trusted friend/family member for a while? Make it harder for yourself to play them at a moment's notice, so that temptation is avoided!

fallout is not my cup of tea but could never understand the hype it looked like fallout 3.5 with no big steps forward.

MGS5 has been my favourite current gen game, great game engine and gameplay but let down by story and also the mission set up after act 1.

From what i have seen TW3 deserves to win game of the year, i normally hate rpg's way to much of a time sink and a repetitive bore for me but TW3 does seem like it's a very good game i might have to try it in a month or so if i have the time

heat for price

Time-sink - well yes, I suppose, in that there's a huge amount of content here if you want it. However, very importantly, it's *not* repetitive and the game world is the most and best fleshed-out that I've experienced in a very long time, if ever. I'd urge you to try it, I doubt that you'd regret it.

+1 I'd say about 4 - 5 years ago as a teen, Fifa used to be my main game which I would play, ultimate team would often make me angry too haha. Definitely enjoying my gaming time more now. Playing a lot of indies (ps plus) and great story driven games. The backlog won't get better if you are spending majority of your time with games such as FIFA & F1. Although I say this, do what makes you happy bro.

I'm with you on this one, see my posting in Misc.
thanks, bought
Wow, just wow........a must buy.

Another vote for 'this'.

​I was thinking the same. guessing witcher 3 as it's cheaper and once completed, fallout 4 will be cheaper. plus in a month or two, they will iron out most bugs in fallout 4.
personally it's a shame I don't have more time, as one of these games is so big I probably never finish. so strangely I'd probably give both a miss and pick up just cause 3, as I know I have a chance to complete that. too many games and not enough hours.
I need something just to get me off bloody Destiny!!!
was gonna buy this ad I've heard good things about it plus it looks good aswell.

It's amazing man, bit repetitive after a while but I must have put like 50hrs + into it so can't complain.
I'm stuck into Fallout 4 at the moment and imagine I will be for the next few weeks.
Witcher III will be the next game I purchase as it does look great. (The look of it reminds me of the underrated 'Kingdoms of Amalur' which I was addicted to on PS3)
So much game for the money. Incredible variety of locations to explore, the only shame for me is that the vast majority of NPCs have nothing to say for themselves other than repeated stock lines, there aren't a huge number of people you can interact with other than merchants and quest-givers. And prostitutes.

One of the many great things about The Witcher 3 (especially compared to the prior two games) is that it's a lot easier to get into. Including that the story gets going really quickly and is really easy to keep track of. I didn't care for the Witcher 2 at all - found it clunky and boring. This is exponentially better, and even though I thought I'd have loads of lore/story gaps, the game does a great job of filling those across the campaign and using the excellent glossary.

I'm playing Dragon Age Inquisition at the moment and can't help compare it (unfavourably) to the Witcher in almost every way.

This. I've been gaming for years now and this is easily one of the best games I've ever played. I'm about 60 hours in and can;t get enough of Gwent
Massive amount of content for such a low price. Great game that will honestly keep you entertained for hours. Try and do the side bits along with the story otherwise you can feel a bit bored after it (Made that mistake with my first play through). Expansion is also excellent value and another one is on the way. Must buy and heat added for this!

F4 is getting a hammering with the user reviews on Metacritic. I was playing it yesterday and it looks good; W3 is on a whole different level though.
Want! but (foolishly probably) continuing to refresh eBay listings instead in the hope of a second hand copy around £18 (which I have seen before but most listing are around £30 at the mo!)

Heat added and I may well cave!
Game of the year for me, absolute quality game, the stories go so deep and interconnect brilliantly. I'm 50 hours in and I've done 12% of the story lol.
Insane value for the amount of content you get. Probably the best RPG I've ever played. Heat added
Hey guys, do you know how long shipping is? They talk about waiting 14 days if in UK and 20 days if overseas..

I feel much better for reading your post... I thought I was the only person - I still have my PS3 with GTA untouched... Batman on my PS4 is like about 10% completed... and I just bought Metal Gear Solid... on the flip side I did just complete the game 'The Last of Us'... but me completing a game nowadays is a rarity.... like yourself FIFA gets a lot of play!
Too many games dammit! Oh well buy it now play it later? Sounds like a plan.
Quidco gives some % back not sure as its saying both 6% and 4 %
I thought that this deal ended at midday? How long is it going to be this price?
