gamestation used to be quite good for trading games, then blockbuster bought it and it went down hill and alot more expensive, then game bought it and its a pile of poo now, just as skank as game,
Game are the worst game shop in history....
and no even tho i really want it, i won't buy it from them at that price, and sony are doing themselves out of sales by making it exclusive to them.... is it worth getting 1000 people buying a game at £110? when you could get hundreds of thousands more sales if its available everywhere, and companies are competing?

MW2 has proved if its good it will sell, they just passed $1b sales, and over here it was available for £26 for a little while, but people are still buying it now.

the big question i suppose is are they allowed to sell it exclusively? isnt it against anti-competition laws or something??

all in all tho i suppose you'll still get it alot cheaper via ebay or something as it can be imported

screw you game, bad bad sony!!

:cry:

Seems like a blatant rip-off. Granted, you get the two older games in HD but at 110 quid you are essentially paying a "new release" price for each title. Not a good deal by an imperial mile.

Will the God of war 1+2 pack be coming to the Uk seperately? or will you either have to buy this or import? :|

Didn't GAME state that their takeover of Gamestation would still encourage competition between the 2 stores? Whatever...

It's no wonder i buy more & more online & elsewhere now.

Why do companys do these kind of deals?
Would it not be better to have a game in as many chain stores/supermarkets as they can.
£110 is way to much, thats around £35 a game. Ok GoW 1+2 are HD updates, but GoW 1 is about 5 years old!

It's coming to the UK seperately as well. You can import it now from the US for about £28 if you want.

I thought that when I saw the price. However, I read something that someone else had said on another site that made sense - you actually get a pretty good deal.

You get GOW3 - so, you could say that was £40. You get the updated GOW1 & 2 - which is about £30 on import. You also get something like 3 music CDs and artbooks. Add on the exclusive content and the packaging and it's probably a fairly decent deal for a die-hard GOW fan, which is really who it's aimed for - it's not something I'd ever consider buying, but I doubt there'll actually be too many of these floating around.

It's a shame they allowed GAME exclusivity though - if this was also available on Play, Amazon and the others - it'd already be at least £10 cheaper.

This is what comes from a large majority of casual gamers not supporting indie companys, I work for an indie company and we go out of our way to help customers and too get import games that customers want, e.g deom souls, GOW collection, we've been selling the GoW collection for a while now and if we could we would love to sell the ultimate edition but Game get given these rights because people who dont know about gaming go to companys like that and give them huge profits
