The last couple of months have been a busy time for gamers and retailers alike as many top titles have been released. One such title was Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim that may be a vast and enjoyable game, but has been met with some annoying issues especially for PlayStation 3 owners. We now have news that Skyrim is seeing heavy price cuts already across all platforms.
And article over at MCV is reporting that retailer Gamestation who are owned by the GAME Group, has begun advertising some great discounts on Skyrim. The retailer is knocking a massive amount off the game to offer it at £22.49 on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
The PC version of the game is even cheaper coming in at £19.99, and proves to be an unusual price drop so quickly after the game was launched. The title was only released less than a month ago and still sits in the top five in the UK gaming charts.
There have been many other titles that have seen big price reductions this year such as Driver: San Francisco, Uncharted 3, Sonic Generations, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution. These games did see a tailing off of their sales though not long after they were released.
Gamestations deal was supposed to go live later this week but the company has told store managers to honor it immediately. The deal is also being advertised on the retailer’s online store as well. We recently had an article looking at why it sometimes pays to hold off getting a big title at launch, and with Skyrim it is certainly the case.
Are you shocked at the big discounts coming so soon for Skyrim?
