Simon Kilby, Founder of Playr2.com, commented on the release of Rage:

“The gaming industry has been eagerly anticipating the release of Rage all year given the brilliant id Software’s lack of recent releases, and as the day is finally upon us, we wanted to help gamers out by pointing them towards the best deals on offer. New games can be fairly costly, so our aim is to help gamers save money wherever possible by letting them know the full spectrum of deals available.”

He continued:

“£34.85 for the pre-order of Rage at Simply Games is certainly a fair price. Although you can usually clinch a cheaper deal a few weeks after release, many gaming fans can’t wait to get their hands on the latest release; so we’d just recommend doing your price research before purchasing.”
