Our prices are intended to be competitive in respect to other websites selling a similar product range.
Every week we compare our top chart titles against other websites to ensure we continue to bring you great prices. For this reason there may be differences between prices on this site to those in our store chain, where the strategy is to price competitively in the local market. In instances where our online price is lower than in one of our stores, that store is not able to match the online price.
All prices shown on this website are in UK Pounds Sterling and are inclusive of VAT which is charged at the current UK rate (No GB 133 1661 43).
You are responsible for claiming back any VAT that you feel is due to you from your local tax or customs office. Please contact our Customer Service team if you require a VAT receipt.
All preorders placed on a product will be supplied at the price ordered at the time, or the price as it stands when we begin to process your order - whichever is the lowest. The only exception to this is where the product has changed from the original description given e.g. it now includes a special controller. We usually begin to process orders a couple of days prior to delivery, but can be earlier if this is required to get your order to you for release day.
The availability and anticipated delivery lead time of an item will be clearly displayed to you when at the checkout confirmation stage of a transaction.
We endeavour to maintain adequate supplies of product to meet anticipated demand but can in no way guarantee availability of any item.
For details about our latest products, prices and availability please call our automated Product Availability Line on 0871 594 0022
If you require any further information on any of our products please contact our Customer Service Team.
You'll notice on GAME.co.uk we display PEGI ratings. PEGI stands for Pan-European Games Information and became the legal classification for video games on 30th July 2012, rated by the Video Standards Council (VSC).
PEGI age ratings indicate what age you need to be to understand how to play the game (so a game like Civilization for example, which is probably suitable content-wise for anyone, wouldn't be recommended for a 7-year old simply because of the depth of the game).
PEGI ratings also warn of the type of content in a game - for example sexual content, violence or bad language.
GAME also displays BBFC ratings, as the BBFC are still responsible for rating non-game material that appear on game discs, like trailers and featurettes. Any product with a BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) rating will be clearly described as such on the product page for that item. For further information on BBFC ratings, see the Video Standards Council Website or the Ask About Games Website.
Warning: Both PEGI and BBFC ratings are legally enforcable. It is an offence to attempt to buy a certificated title if you are under age or to attempt to purchase one on behalf of someone else who is under age.
Not all games are rated at the time that they are listed on our site. We will always work as quickly as possible to confirm the age ratings of our products to ensure you can make the right choice with your purchases.
What is Age Verification
Age Verification is a system used by retailers to establish the age of a customer purchasing age restricted video games and services which could include sex, nudity, violence or profanity.
GAME takes all reasonable steps to establish the age of its customers purchasing age restricted video games and services remotely. In checking out on the GAME site, you are confirming that you have read and agreed to our Terms and Conditions of sale. Furthermore, by placing an order for a product where an age restriction warning is displayed, you are confirming that you are over the required age.
Warning: It is an offence to attempt to buy a certificated title if you are under age or to attempt to purchase one on behalf of someone else who is under age.
Age Restricted Products
All games are given an age-related classification through either the BBFC or the PEGI scheme.
Any product with a BBFC (British Board of film Classification) or PEGI (Pan European Game Information) rating will be clearly described as such on the product page for that item.
GAME is committed to creating a safe online shopping environment for all its customers and is continually looking at more robust ways of ensuring age restricted goods and services stay out of the reach of children.
