UK: Amazon Reduces Price Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild On Nintendo Switch

One thing that people were surprised about when pre-orders opened for the Nintendo Switch was the pricing of the games and peripherals. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was going for £60 on both Amazon UK and the Nintendo UK Store. Thankfully, Amazon has seen sense and has reduced the game to the more acceptable £50 mark. If you are a Prime member you can get the game for £47.99.

        While it was fun for a bit to allow people to post anonymously, it’ll be nice to see people having to log in again. Most trolls won’t want to put forth the effort, so that will only leave the hardcore trolls.

        And the hardcore trolls are usually, thankfully, a very small minority on here.

  2. I’m torn. I can pre-order the switch version at a discount via Amazon prime, OR, wait to see if they release a breath of the wild bundle later…

    If they don’t, I will be stuck paying full price after release.. hmm..

      1. I would just get the game at a 20% discount (Amazon Prime Pre-order discount) and wait to buy a switch.

          1. I mean… it’s the same game. I’m pretty excited about the WiiU version honestly. I hope it has off screen play. My gamepad has an extended 6-8 he battery in it. ;D

            1. Exactly. Slightly better visuals on the Switch version, but that’s about it. I’m perfectly fine with getting the Wii U version. I didn’t even think of off-screen play. I don’t use it much, but it’d be useful for toilet breaks haha.

              1. And it seems we may get a map on the gamepad while we play, which I think is a great, exclusive feature!

  3. I really hate that pose Link is doing in the UK cover. The colors are great and the background is gorgeous. But that pose is just horrible. Glad I’m getting the U.S. version.

    1. The pose isn’t really an issue. He’s just looking over his shoulder at the would-be onlooker. I think the real problem with the cover is that the foreground and background is lackluster. They look like rushed pieces of art with not much to them. The middle ground where link stands and to his right and left look much better. The shading in the rocks and the splash of color from the flowers make that part of the cover stand out.

      1. I had a laugh out of that question, too. “Real money? Well you certainly aren’t buying it with fake money from a Monopoly game!”
