Retailer Gamestation has this morning begun advertising an incredible discount on Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
The chain will slash the price of the popular RPG to just 22.49 on Xbox 360 and PS3. The PC version will be cut to 19.99.
It’s unusual for such an aggressive discount to be applied to a game that is still selling incredibly well and was released so recently. Skyrim was released nearly a month ago on November 11th and still resides in the Top Five of the UK charts.
Plenty of other games have seen their prices slashed rapidly by retail this year, including the likes of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Driver: San Francisco, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, Uncharted 3 and Sonic Generations.
However, these titles had fallen seen a significant drop in sales following their week-ones – a problem that has been examined specifically by MCV.
UPDATE: MCV can confirm that while the deal was originally intended to go live later in the week, store managers are being instructed to begin honouring it immediately.
