    They're the Ubisoft launch titles...of the 5 of them only Lumines and Rayman are likely to be any good, and Lumines can be an acquired taste. Also, it wouldn't surprise me if they're digital purchases.

    I think it's quite decent of them to finally admit they essentially shovel exrement in game form....and on a major retail site too!

    But like i said...probably digital delivery at those prices with no box shots.

    I can understand the low price on Michael Jackson, but Origins seems to be a genuinely interesting game.

    It's clearly a misprice, which won't be honored. Just like when they offered the MGS HD Collection on PS3 for £20. All orders will be cancelled and if you want the game you will have to pay full price. Also happened with the Vita memory cards.

    Rayman Origins is genuinely awesome. I have it on PS3 and it's so well crafted its amazing.

    Go troll somewhere else. A (now corrected) price error is not a sales tactic to shift units.

    That would do the oposit effect, If they cancel the orders. Which they probably will. Upsetting customers isn't a wise sale tactic. Also because they picked the games up for £5 doesn't mean they are going to reorder them at 5x the price. It's obviously a mistake. Shame there is no law where they have to honor the price. I grabbed all the games except the micheal jackson one , Worth a try.

    Only Rayman will be at least halfway decent.

    Rayman Origins isn't even worth that low price, it's worth a higher price. :tpi:
