Deal Attack! Gran Turismo 5 - pre-order (was) at less than half price!

3 August 2009

EDIT: It's Tuesday morning and the pre-order price of the game has now gone up to £37.96. Everything you are about to read is complete balls. But it was good while it lasted.

Here’s one that’s lighting up the HotUKDeals forum tonight – the brand new Gran Tursimo game for the PS3, GT5, on pre-order for only £17.59 via Amazon!

The RRP is £39.99 and although there’s no official release date for the game, the word on the net is that it’ll be available as early as the end of September.

Lots of HUKDers are poo-pooing the deal, saying that it’s an obvious misprice, but as Amazon’s pre-order price guarantee states…

“'s price for not-yet-released items sometimes changes between the time the item is listed for sale and the time it is released and dispatched. Whenever you pre-order a book, CD, video, DVD, software or video game, the price you will pay will be the lowest price offered by between the time you place your order and up to and including the release date.”

Got to be worth a punt for the most eagerly-awaited driving-cars-fast game of the year. Peep peep!
