Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - Nintendo Switch £38.69 with code at Argos on eBay
Found 9 h, 17 m agoFound 9 h, 17 m ago
Code started working at 10am today, not sure for how long. £42.99 minus 10% means the game for £38.69 with free click and collect from a local Argos

It's basic supply and demand, this game is still number 4 in the UK sales chart over a year after release, and 3rd in the individual formats chart. As Nintendo games sell [relatively] strongly for a long time they stay at full price. Other games tend to sell mostly in the first few weeks and then sales dry up so pricing gets more and more aggressive. Look at FIFA, that has strong sales for nearly a year and maintains a relatively high price, then price plummets.


We also have had this since day one on the Wii U, didn't stop us getting so it can be played on the move now, with the Switch. It also has a few battle modes that were not included, and all the DLC is there too. I'm going to say that while you are correct the Wii U is a different platform, it will cost anyone who already owns a Switch £100+ to get the cheaper Wii U version, and again this is still technically a platform exclusive, since this version of the game cannot be bought for another system. Either way, we love both the Switch and the Wii U, and the level of value you get out of the first party titles is almost unmatched, using cost divided by enjoyment hours as the formula. :)


I get what your saying, however this game is a port from another platform (the Wii U) and was £20 on that platform back in 2015 / 2016. I would actually buy it again on the Switch for a similar price just to play multiplayer with friends, however it's hard to justify almost double the price for a port of an old game I've owned since 2015. Granted i'm sure many people didn't play it back on the Wii U so depending on your situation this might be a deal. For myself personally this is not a deal, however it would be unfair for me to vote either way as it is a slight deal compared to other places selling the game on the Switch platform.


My bad I knew it was something along them lines lol. Shame you have to spend 50 but still cheaper. I always use this to get full priced games for cheaper.


Good call, thanks. However, the current code is PRIMENOW10 which gives £10 off a minimum order of £50 rather than £40. I've ordered anyway. Mario Kart 8 and two official Nintendo wheels for £45.98. Both arriving before 14:00.

I got a discounted wii u a few weeks ago and other than having no box it was near mint and had mariokart 8 on it They wouldn't buy a phone I had because of a tiny crack in the screen surround or a camera lens which had a bit of dust in it (perfectly normal for a dslr lens) so they are fussy on what they take.


have you read the terms of the 2 year warranty? to be completely honest i don't know why you decided to be passive aggressive with me in the first place here. go to your nearest cex, look at the items that are labelled boxed/unboxed and then the exact same thing that is discounted and see the differences for yourself. in fact my brother just bought a discounted xbox one controller 2 weeks ago and took it back the next day because the buttons were sticking down once pressed. are you telling me that is perfectly working? coz i dont think so :)


I was in the same boat (lol) (lol) but hey, gameplay beats all right!? I'm jealous of the mario edition....


I saw on eBay; Zelda Wind Waker HD digital for £9.7x from Music Magpie. Seemed good


Not sure I could play the original Wii now, it looked like I had smeared Vaseline in my eyes when I played it on my HD TV back in the day. I have a 4k TV now, even bigger, it would just be even more blurry. I have an original Wii still sealed in its box, Mario 25th anniversary edt too (strong)

i dont think they come with manuals now


Received a couple of switch games today from music magpie, I noticed they are not sealed or shrink wrapped but I cannot remember if they should be, only bought a couple of other games (for my son) and I think he got them from the post before I saw. Should the games be sealed or shrink wrapped? Should they have a manual or some bit of paper inside the case?


If you have a son anything like mine he will want to play the switch before school, after school and during school too apparently once he's played Kirby! Be warned... Be warned!


Had all mine despatched.


Breath of the Wild (Used) is just under £30 on amazon via musicmagpie store Mario Kart 8 (Used) - £30

[Switch] Mario Kart 8 Deluxe £36.89 / Monopoly £18.89 @ MusicMagpie
Found 14th MayFound 14th May
Monopoly Switch - £18.89. Good price for both these games as they should be in New condition. Prices are after 10% discount applied at checkout.

OoS. Expired?


I agree with you on switch games being too expensive. I assume when you say 'opened' you're talking about the recently reported vulnerability that may lead to homebrew and emulators? What I'd really like to see from that, would be someone hacking the switch to run remote play from the ps4. Using a switch to run ps4 games would be brilliant.... In my opinion.


I like having original games but these switch games are far to expensive, once the switch is "opened" fully their game sales will dry up.


The OP said they should be in New Condition but the items are used. No MK8 left now unfortunately though!


Instruction manual says apply hammer directly to console to immediately end game.

That’s great. But they are totally different concepts none-the-less.


I care for the sake of other people’s boredom and sanity enough to comment on your post. On behalf of the human race: nobody cares.


Yes, but the wii u remote can be used to play the game in hand held, portable mode, as long as you are close to the console, as for when you play on the TV.. the remote screen becomes just a gimmick, displaying the menu, map, inventory, which is interesting, but since you can get to the menu/map/inventory with the press of a button, you may end up never looking at the remote screen, or just using a wii u pro controller.


I haven't heard that Nintendo have stopped supplying Wii U games :{


Love the cognitive dissonance (pirate)

Regularly see the Neon go for £249 and the Grey for a little less, so its an ok price, not low enough for myself to bite yet tho.

For the worst way to play the game...


So with this you need to use auto accelerate. And are there buttons on the back for triggers? Else that would be pretty awkward


Haha I get it 😁


Aw man, I should of posted this last week when I saw it in my local- I figured it was my store only and didn't post for fear of 'wild goose chase' comments but it looks like it's now national (fierce)


And in Broughton (nr Chester) tried 3 other nearby ones but there gaming sections were awfull and they didn't have these.

Get dealGet deal

also i didnt vote it cold my problem isnt with the deal itself just nintendos pricing in the first place


dont give it the biggun mate i understand the game im a massive mario kart fan i just hate how they have re released the same game over and over but kept with a high rrp so knowing i payed £45 for the wii u version plus £8 for the dlc then now would have to pay again for bassiclly the same game really grinds my gears so i think personally £25 would of been a nice gesture by nintendo to all the loyal fans who like me will of deffo bought the wii u version and now upgraded to switch dont you agree with my reasoning?


yes but the point i was making was i payed 45 for the original wii u then the deluxe edition came out then now pretty much the same game on the switch is £42 rehashing a game they already have made and sell it for full price annoys me


Never played Mario Kart before? Game is easily worth £42


I don’t u defeat and why it’s -149 cold? It’s the cheapest including any of the “key seller” websites such as cdkeys ... why waste my time it’s digital as stated and not physical copy and the guy saying it should of been £25 has no understanding what this game offers in content and game time.

Do REM not like MK8 then? I don't like the game much, myself. REM are alright though!


MK8D and DKTFD have certainly killed the price of the Wii U physical versions. Another reason not to support and buy the lazy and expensive rehashes.


Been waiting for this to drop in price, cheers!


Still one of the greatest ever games. Prefer the original though

Hi all, this probably wants refreshing as I just successfully placed an order for the Mario kart 8 / twilight princess bundle at this price


With the Switch going for £200-50 and the Wii U hanging around £120, the Switch is looking the much better option at the moment


All bundles appear back in stock now incase anyone was after the mario bundle :)


Looks like stock coming in & out then... Worth keeping the page open and F5'ing every once in a while...


Zelda/mk8 as well. Looks like it's just smash Bros that's oos hence that bundle is annoyingly.

Thanks, been looking for a decent price for this! Heat added!

Definitely agree with the single player. Half the fun was unlocking things, but with them all unlocked the game felt pointless... Great for multiplayer though!

True. But I've not had that urge to lick my cartridges. But if ya wanna buy one of my games. I'll make sure that it's prelicked, don't you worry :{


Go to and change your region. Pay with debit/credit card (most cards have a 'foreign currency transaction fee'), but there are cards that don't, including services like Revolut/Monzo


You could of course get a "pre-licked" cart...


Even at £42 it's an expensive copy of the game. If you're wanting new £40+ is what you'd be looking at. But used, this is closer to £30-35 on for sale platforms (sphock, Facebook market place and gumtree). I actually got a sealed copy for £32 off sphock back in November. Of course that's going to be a one off. But for a cartridge I would always recommend going used as it's very unlikely you'd get a damaged cart.


How would I be able to buy this from the SA eshop?

I ordered early this afternoon, it says pending on my order, (did say out of stock when I placed my order) but now the game isn't coming up on the site... Seems odd that they would remove it completely, rather than just say OOS..?
