GameStop Opens UK Retail Site

July 29, 2011 -

U.S. game retail chain GameStop has opened up a retail site dedicated to consumers in the united Kingdom. The new site opens with a bang, offering customers several promotional deals including a three-for-two sale on pre-owned games, and reduced prices on some console hardware and software. The new site is located at www.gamestop.co.uk.

"GameStop's entry into the UK online market will provide consumers with more choices and exclusive content that they can't find anywhere else," said Mike Mauler, executive vice president of GameStop International. "One of our European exclusives is for the anticipated release of Assassin's Creed Revelations Animus Edition, which will be available to UK gamers only through www.gamestop.co.uk."

Some of the aforementioned specials include the Nintendo 3DS Cosmic Black console for £154.97, Call of Juarez for Xbox 360 and PS3 priced at £21.97, and the exclusive Assassin's Creed Revelations Animus Edition for preorder. The Animus edition comes with an in-depth encyclopedia with comprehensive entries on the major characters, events and other important aspects of the Assassin’s Creed universe; the original game soundtrack disc; the Assassin’s Creed Embers Movie (animated short film); the Animus Box and undisclosed exclusive in-game content.

GameStop UK is also offering a special contest for those who pre-order Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on the website. Pre-ordering will get you a shot at winning two tickets to the Call of Duty XP event in Los Angeles. For details on entering, visit www.gamestop.co.uk/MW3/Preorder.

Earlier in the week GameStop announced the launch of its in-store digital PC game purchase program. Basically, the program allows GameStop customers to trade in their used console games which can then be used to buy PC games such as the upcoming Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

Big PermI'm talking about not being able to fully disable telemetry unless you have Enterprise software. It's just creepy to me08/04/2015 - 9:31am
TechnogeekBig Perm: If you're talking about the image I think you are, then no, not really. The claims it makes are, at best, extremely misleading in many instances.08/04/2015 - 9:28am
E. Zachary KnightBig Perm, That would make logical sense, so of course YouTube would not allow you to set your subscription page as the home page.08/04/2015 - 9:14am
Big PermBy the way. Anyone else kind of spooked by Microsofts data collection that's being reported about Win10? Thinking of finally trying a linux box for general use and Windows for gaming only08/04/2015 - 8:59am
Big PermCan you set youtube to load subs instead of recommendations first?08/04/2015 - 8:54am
MonteI've had mostly good experience with Youtube recommendations... only problem is when i watch a certain video that messes it up and gets me reconmendations i don't want. Though all i have to do is remove said video from my history to fix it08/04/2015 - 8:42am
Big PermYoutube wants me to watch Nicki Minaj videos. I am ok with this. Dat mute tho08/04/2015 - 7:48am
IvresseIronpatriot: I think it's fair to say that even anti-gamergaters want you to just shut the hell up...08/04/2015 - 7:27am
Sora-Chan@Andrew Eisen: A tip for when it comes to clicking people's video recommendations, use Incognito/Private Mode.that'll keep those kinds of recommendations off the radar. =P08/04/2015 - 5:37am
InfophileWow, I just got an e-mailed ad from Nintendo: "FREE AC Adapter with New Nintendo 3DS XL" - So... pretending this didn't used to be normal, are we?08/04/2015 - 3:34am
MattsworknameNight man, take care08/04/2015 - 2:59am
Andrew EisenOff to bed. Play nice.08/04/2015 - 2:53am
Andrew EisenNo worries. Yeah, it's the pits. It's like "How many times do I have to tell you I'm not interested in this producer's work before you stop recommending his videos to me?!"08/04/2015 - 2:53am
MattsworknameAndrew: Sorry man, youtubes recomendations system is really crappy08/04/2015 - 2:49am
MattsworknameIp: they cite 4 chan. Enough said08/04/2015 - 2:47am
IronPatriotWhat I don't get is why anyone wants to be part of the private online army for a stalker.08/04/2015 - 2:32am
IronPatriotYes, it's pretty sad that even after GG has been exposed as a fraud designed to harass Sarkeesian, they still want to attack her. Do facts even matter anymore?08/04/2015 - 2:30am
Andrew EisenDammit. For context's sake, I watched that one Chris Ray Gun video Matt linked to and now my recommends are chockful of anti-Sarkeesian crap from the usual suspects. ARGH!08/04/2015 - 2:27am
Andrew EisenIP - Now you just essentially asked Matt the same question twice in a row. Seriously, once is enough.08/04/2015 - 2:11am
