    Apparently that's matching the Steam price, but its currently £15 on PS4.

    Yeah I said elsewhere it should of been £19.99 tops really. I just can't see them getting loads of sales at that price point.

    It could be a Team 17 publishing thing. Those guys priced Worms WMD at 20 quid. That went from instant purchase to waiting until it goes on sale.

    @DangerousDave_87

    Very true. I like worms as much as the next guy but again the price point is wrong. Needs to be at least £15 for me.

    Yeah, both are nailed on for the New Year's sales you'd imagine. Can't blame them for pricing it like a brand new release, given some Switch customers might not have any of the other platforms. But by the same token, they can't blame us for giving them a body-swerve until the price comes down.

    See also: L.A. Noire, Skyrim, et al (most of which charted on Switch, it's worth pointing out).

    That is a sale price, it will go back up to £35 next week/when sales end. Maybe there will be a sale in a few months on the e-shop for it.

    @DangerousDave_87 they aren't doing that just for Switch though, both Y-L and Worms are that much on PC as well

    I do have a lot of games to play.. Vostok seems like a brainless fun game.
    I came in here to peddle my filthy wares like a true capitalist but it seems everyone else was already doing it for me! Let me know what you think of it. Should be on the store from 3 :D

    Have you put your order in for a Ferrari yet? You can get a red one and a yellow one just like Romero and Carmack 😀

    Yeah I just got phantom and noticed it wasn't there. It's not good enough. Not buying it now ;)

    I know everybody talks about how easy it is to buy from other e-shops, but I'm on the US store at the moment and it's asking me for a zip code and honestly I am terrified.

    Any tips?
  • Deleted user 7 December 2017 17:13:36
    Just Google one.

    Edit: Actually no, don't use that. I believe California has one of the highest taxes in the US...

    Google a state with no sales tax, then google the address of a business. I think the US PSN has me down for living in a hotel in Delaware. ;)

    Tonight's entertainment sorted. Phantom breakers and Vostok inc. I'll also keep plugging away at the Ghostbusters PBA table until I hit that billion mark. (465m highest so far)

    First Vostok impressions: seems cool, but the vibration is waaaaaay too strong, it‘s at max level every time you shoot at an asteroid. You can turn it off in the options though.

    Haven’t gone for a new game today, opted for steamworld dig instead. Loved the first game, so look forward to more digging later on tonight

    @JoelStinty If you loved the first, you'll love the second a lot more.

    Many thanks to all for the assistance, it all seemed a bit leery buying e-cards and putting in zips but it was all quite painless in the end. I just hope the Nintendo Police don't get me :)

    Apparently The Sexy Brutale has some performance issues. Maybe wait to see some reviews/impressions if you were planning on picking it up.
  • Deleted user 7 December 2017 19:21:02
    Annnd the pinball arcade is now showing on the eshop under coming soon. Days after I bought the physical copy.
    Doh! I've listed it on eBay anyways and I'll grab the digital next week as it's a free download and just buy the tables you want.

    Okay so I can't change back from the US region, as I still have 10 cents on my account... I can see this being awkward, not sure what to do.

    Okay, for the uninitiated, if you use an e-card to buy something from the US e-shop, if you have any money left over at all - even 1c - then you will not be able to switch back to the UK (or wherever). Apparently this rule varies from region to region, presumably depending on financial regulations or something.

    A very nice lady from NoA support has fixed the issue for me, but the email I got telling me it was sorted also said "Please note that if you experience a similar situation in the future, we may not be able to assist you".

    So, not doing that again.
