Does The Game Collection send out exclusively UK/European copies of games? I remember there was a UK online retailer that would sometimes send out Middle Eastern copies and the like, that wasn't them, was it?

Happened to me once on horizon zero dawn.
Everything else ive ever ordered has been uk version. So i guess there is a slight chance.

Oh, one more thing, if you order multiple games at The Game Collection, do they send them in one parcel (provided that they are in stock), or do they send them out individually, ala Zavvi?

OK, thanks. I guess it shouldn't be a problem either way, since i won't be buying any DLC for the games i'm getting.
DLC works anyway, unless it has a different serial number which is usually not the case unless there's censorship.

Since the £ has been weaker, there's been less of the EU copies about at all retailers. Also means why we don't get as many new released for £40 and under now.

Thanks. Same question to you, do they send out orders with multiple items in one parcel, or one by one, like Zavvi?

Days Gone still 30€. That's TWO times GoW4! Or 1.5 times RDR2! That's one third of a SAD!

Urgh. Don't know if I should get Days Gone and mow down some Zombies or get the cheaper RDR2 and be annoyed by all the time wasting activities or get Rage 2 and wish I had a Pro for 60 fps?!

Also a new Xbox owner thanks to the crazy Tesco deal. What are the best deals around for game pass, please? UK here, if that makes a difference.

CDKeys had a countdown to their Black Friday sale this morning, but I don't think any of their prices changed?

Their actual Black Friday page is broken, but the sale page they told someone to go to instead is no different to how it was last night. So not sure if it was just a faux countdown to drum up hype and traffic...

don't know about best, but I bought 2 years of Xbox Live Gold from cdkeys for £35.99 each, added them to my (new) Xbox account (which gives one month extra), then used this link to convert them to Ultimate Gamepass while adding 3 extra months for £1. That's 28 months of Ultimate Gamepass for £73, so if I've done my sums right that's roughly £2.60 a month. Phew!

Tbh if you wanted a spare controller, the £159 deal is probably better imo. £40 for the controller, leaving £119 for the machine which at least has a disc drive. Sure you don’t get the games, but they’re all on GP anyways (and the superior FH4 instead of 3).

Hmm, thinking about it. I might just wait until the next gen is out and get an old x if they drop this low, I almost exclusively want it for BC on my future 4k TV

A lot of games now sub £40 boxes for Switch. Pokemon included
Thanks for that, £35 for Switcher 3 is the perfect price point for me. :)

To be fair the normal price is 99 euros but you get a 20 euros discount code when you register for the first time on Otto. A lot of people abuse the discount by registering on the site over and over again lol.
Even without that trick it's a good place to look for games when the time is right. Got myself Sekiro for 19€ in a pre-Black Friday sale and RE2 today for 15€ after getting a 10€ discount into my account. ;)

I don’t know if this constitutes the kind of deal that would normally go in here, but I thought it would probably be interesting to some.

The EDGE magazine app has all the (digital) back issues available for £9.99 from December 2009 onwards.

Damn can't decide, Mariokart, NSMB or Mario Odessy... or maybe all three as I'll buy them all eventually?
I'm guessing they're unlikely to drop much further in the near future, they tend to hold their value.

Edit: Oh only a few quid saving, I thought they usually went for more.

Can these be downloaded as pdfs to view on desktop etc or are they tied to the app?
