Ireland lost another high street video game retailer after the recent closure of HMV, they followed fan favorites GAME into administration leaving Irish consumers very little choice of outlets when buying their games. Smyths, Xtravision and Gamestop are among the few video game shops left in Ireland at the moment so in some cases selection is limited and prices are high.
For some of the best deals when it comes to Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 games the internet, specifically amazon.co.uk, is currently the best place to look. There are constantly great sales for old, new and upcoming titles, their fully priced games are also great value, a prime example is the brand new ‘Bioshock Infinate’ which will set you back around €40 which is currently cheaper than any high street retailer. As is always the case with items sold by amazon.co.uk the delivery cost to Ireland is free on orders over £25
There are currently some great games at very low prices and across various platforms on amazon, these include:
- Tomb Raider
- Far Cry 3
- Assassins Creed 3
- Batman: Arkham City
