    Play.com had (well, it's still there but guessing it will be removed shortly) it on pre-order for £24.99

    Why the fuck would they make this a GAME exclusive in light of recent events?

    Holy shit, I'm glad this practice of "store-exclusive" games hasn't reached the U.S. yet. (Or has it?)

    I have no problems with this tbh, although I've been purchasing my latest games from amazon (due to the recent issues with game and not having all games), but I still purchased most of my 360, DS and 3DS library from them... Here's hoping it'll have a good price tho. =O

    i know right? it's the same price as a console game that's why i hate handheld games sometimes, old DS games are still £30 it's disgusting.

    People saying that this is disgusting and whatnot should really think of how good, financially, this will be for GAME. It's an excellent business decision and the fact that they will have no direct competition to stock this game (new, anyway) means that...well, they get all your pennies :D

    Not saying it's a good decision for the public but y'know...companies are out there to make money, sometimes I wonder whether people think that the videogame industry is exempt from that.
