Fallout: NV is £13 at my game store. Is there anything wrong with the game?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I find new realease that are that cheap new, usually have something wrong with them. So is there something wrong with the PC version of Fallout: New Vegas. Is it buggy or?

When something seems too good to be true, it usually is

EDIT: The game store is GAME in the UK

It's gone down a lot on consoles actually. You can find it close to £20 if you look hard enough. Brilliant game for the money though.

I had a similar look on my face when I found Mass Effect 2 for £5.

A couple of weeks ago it was £15 on Amazon. So it doesn't look like a dodgy deal at all.

Most probably due to the expansion pack being released soon so they are dropping the price in hopes that more people will buy the game and eventually pick up the expansion as well.

You should pick it up, I've heard nothing but good things about it.

The only reason I haven't got it yet is because I'm waiting for the version that has all of the expansions included which will be sometime next year. I bought Fallout 3 on release day and ended up buying it again when the GOTY edition was released with all of the expansions so I'm not doing that again with New Vegas.

In fact I've just had a look and it is £13 on Amazon right now.

I posted a Deals thread 2 weeks ago when it was £15.97 and there was no interest, but £12.99 is better than £15.97 so maybe this one will get more interest.
