PS3 Version to cost more than 360 in UK

Quote:
Major UK high street retailer WHSmiths has priced the PlayStation 3 version of GTA IV at £44.99, while the 360 version will cost £5 less at £39.99.

The pricing has been confirmed as part of the chain’s pre-order campaign: take a look at photos of promotional material after the link.

Speaking to videogaming247 today, both Game and GameStation store managers said they expected the PS3 version of the Rockstar title to cost more than the 360 SKU, but neither outlet has yet priced the game.

“The PS3 version will probably cost more. We’re expecting an RRP from Rockstar on April 14,” the GameStation staffer said. “They dictate the price, basically.”

The whole thing’s academic if you’ve got half a brain: Amazon.co.uk’s offering both versions for £34.99.





GTA IV releases on April 29.
At least it's not certain. Even if it is, Amazon will be the way to go for me I'm not sure how many people buy their games from WHSmiths, But if GAME & Gamestation follow suit then it's going to affect pretty much everyone who wants it on PS3/.

GAME and Gamestation and many other places have had them both at the same price for months now, WHSmith is just a book store really who sells games as an extra. It's just more nonsense to try and get people to buy the 360 version instead.

PS3 games are generally 5 or 10 quid more expensive over here anyway. Wouldn't be a surprise really.

Quite a lot of games actually. Maybe it has something to do with the BD? Not likely, but whatever...

lol this happens with all ps3 games. I never buy from Game/Gamestation anymore. It's usually HMV, and believe it or not, Asda. Asda and Tesco seem to be the cheapest when it comes to games. Asda and Teso sell all of their games below £40.
