GAME Randomly Adds £10 To The Price Of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
UK retailer GAME have made the strange move of adding £10 to both the Wii U and 3DS versions of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.
The Wii U version was originally up for pre-order at £41.99 with the 3DS version costing £29.99. Oddly after the release of both games, the costs of each went up. The Wii U version not costs a staggering £49.99 and the 3DS version costing a burning £39.99. There has been no real reason given to why the prices have went up so sharply.
We visited a local branch of GAME (Newcastle) to confirm that this price change effected both in store and online. The store had a number of copies left, all with the newly amended high price. When asked about the price change the staff replied with ‘the game costs the same in every other store’. This is simply not the case as UK chain Grainger Games was selling the Wii U version for £41.99.
After getting in touch with GAME via Twitter we received a odd reply which didn’t truly answer anything:
This reply make no sense given we had physically seen copies stocked on the shelf and had even taken one to the counter. Is this a case of GAME trying to earn a quick extra few pounds via a limited release? At the moment both version of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate remain at their amended high price.
