Not that the pricing itself is a big surprise, but more that some outlets have gone with rather sensational headlines to bag some of those Monday hits. “OMG UNCHARTED VITA IS £45 !1111!” went one.
Well, it didn’t, but you get the idea.
The fact is that RRP prices are always high. And retailers will, especially online, always sell them cheaper than that. Sure, GAME and Co. will likely try to shove them out at the full whack, but if you pay RRP for anything then you’ve only got yourself to blame.
So here’s the skinny: Play.com are saying that Uncharted: Golden Abyss has an RRP of £45 and are selling it for £40. Amazon are selling it for under £30. Unless you’ve got any misplaced allegiance to Play, the sensible option is Amazon.
And that’s the story. That’s it.
The fact is that Vita games might have a high RRP, but they won’t be that expensive even if you can muster little more than a cursory check on Amazon.
Still, Mondays, eh?
