Hey Guys,

I've been waiting for the ultimate deals this week and I have found it.

For those in UK and in States with Direct2Drive you can have 20% off your ENTIRE order right now with the promo key on the website.

That means I just bought Skyrim for PC for $47 I think you can get for 31 pounds in UK

Everything 20% off.

Enjoy

P.s. I posted on the bargains sticky too but I thought this was too good to pass up.

That's still more expensive than a retail copy here, plus the price is 32 (you weren't far off).

Since many of their new releases are 40, they're still more expensive than Steam and retail, even with the 20% off deal. I got Skyrim cheaper than that on release day. With all the sales on this week, D2D's effort is really pathetic.

It's hard to feel sorry for them when people like the OP are getting taken in by it (I'm assuming you are legit).

State-Side we haven't had many deals for Skyrim (That I've seen) except for those few keys that have been sold on Ebay.

Saving $12.50 on a $59.99 game seems legit to me for how the game just came out this month. But as I'm unfamiliar with pricing in the UK/deals that are available there I can see how this might not be as great a deal t some.

I don't see just how I'm being taken by it @Heliocentric either.

In the UK, even on release day, you should be able to find a game like Skyrim for less than 30 (i.e. below $46) without looking too hard. There are exceptions of course. Modern Warfare 2 sold at a stupidly high price everywhere, and StarCraft 2's price was and is kept high by Blizzard.

Still, $59.99 is nearly 39. If you pay that much you've been fleeced.

Actually, no, Skyrim has largely been at the 30 price point. Even before release, Amazon had it at about 28 as the lowest. There were a few sites that had it for less, but mostly they tended to require non-specific discount codes (like 5 off any preorders) rather than the game itself being cheap.

I think all CoD games since MW1 have sold at the 40 price point (rather than the typical 30), and SC2 sat at 35 for a long time. I would like to blame Activision, and surely they're involved somehow, but Blizzard games have always been artificially expensive. SC1 Complete sat at 10 for years, and Diablo 2 and its expansion were 10 apiece for years, too, although GAME had them on two-for-15 for many of those years. I think WC3 was the same, too, but I can't entirely remember.

28 is less than 30, isn't it? :P
OK not by much, but still below the barrier number and not that hard to find if you're even a little bit savy.
