Blockbuster’s Prototype For Game Retail Success

Blockbuster has long been one of those games retailers that flew under the radar a little bit. They’ve had some cracking deals in the past but they’ve never really shouted too loudly about them or made a big deal out of their growing commitment to selling games in the UK. That all looks like it’s starting to change though.

They’ve just been in touch to let us know that they’ve got exclusive rights to sell a Limited Edition of Prototype 2 in the UK. The edition includes two pieces of DLC which give the player a couple of extra moves in their repertoire.


The Bio-Bomb Butt Kicker allows Sgt James Heller to perform a supercharged drop-kick, turning enemies into living, exploding projectiles as they are thrown at other enemies. Combined with this, gamers are presented with the Vehicle Specialist upgrade which offers an additional armour boost when driving or piloting ANY military vehicle.

So, that’s nice. Even nicer, though, is the price. Blockbuster’s limited edition of Prototype 2 will sell for £34.99, which sounds awfully cheap to me. Fortunately, for those of us who live in the sticks and don’t have access to a Blockbuster store, they’re also selling via their website. The game is released on 24th April.
