Noticed this in my lunch break. Found in Bristol city centre store, near the galleries.

The whole batch of cards had a sticker of 26.99

Could be store specific but no harm in a goose chase

What did you have for lunch?
Having worked at game for 4 years. this will 100% be a case of somebody mislabelling the product. given the fact the 'discounted' price is exactly the cost of the season pass says all you need to know.

what's likely to have happened is that one member of staff was labelling a pile of the season pass cards. checked the price of the top one then assumed the rest of the pile were the same price. it happens all the time. trust me i've been there when you're labelling a huge amount of these cards & it's easy to miss something being out of place.

from what i've read the OP never took it to the counter to buy it because he doesn't have a switch. so never got the confirmation of price.

always used to infuriate me, would come back after a few days off & there'd be lots of little errors like this, especially when there's new staff around.

Are you sure it was the full game and not the expansion pass?

Definitely not the expansion pass, even the assistant was like this is a really good price.

I've been looking at getting a switch so was very tempted, happy to take a pic when I go on my stroll tomorrow!

Because Game assistants have never been known to lie and talk guff to get a sale, eh?

Almost certainly the case.

Well then this is even better, they marked the full game down so clearly a mis-price!

Like I said, even the assistant was like 'this is an excellent price for an amazing game')

Will do tomorrow
The store stock checker shows the price at £49.99. May have been stickered incorrectly but that’s the price it would scan as (website and tills get the prices from the same system).
Great price for a great game, you don't need to have played the previous XB games as this story stands alone.
It works great with a Pro controller (and portable mode with joy-cons isn't bad either) and has no amiibo support, so don't rush out to buy Shulk.
It is also due an update in the next week (unless it gets delayed again) giving a New Game+ with extra characters to play with.

You miss out on some major reveals and their real meaning if you're not familiar with XC1 though, keeping it spoiler free!

Push ups, sit ups and plenty of juice

I read an article on the link between the games when I felt like I was nearing the end of the story (to see if I was missing anything important), but I just wanted to mention that this game stands alone since I wouldn't of bought it if someone didn't inform me of the fact. I only got an hour into XB3D before getting distracted, might go back to it soon (although I usually play JRPGs with Japanese voices, which is not an option on the 3DS).

As a side note, if you want Japanese voices for XB2 on the Switch, you can download it (for free) from the Xenoblade page on the e-shop.

Honestly it's worth going back. It's utterly bonkers and will make more sense when you consider the end of XC2.
Agreed on standalone, as enough is explained - but it's so crazy it's great!

Both stories take time to develop, so summaries often miss the essence imo

Best JRPG in years.

I totally missed this, went to the wrap place - Metina in St Nichs Market! If you know, you know!
Ohhh wow great price. I might double dip to have this digital. I've got the CE but the Switch is so much better when games are digital.

Edit - just seen it's an instore deal. No go for me Would be happy to PayPal someone for this if anyone finds one locally. My nearest GAME is a hefty trek.

I literally bought this a week ago for £40 -_-

Amazing game though, worth it.

It shows in store price as being £49.99 so might yet be a misprice in that store.

Store stock check doesn't work or isn't an option at least for me.
