Dead Cells - Nintendo Switch Physical Copy (Prime Pre-Order) YMMV $28

$28.00

This is a typical pre-order discount for games sold, but for some reason the discount isn't applying on checkout despite meeting all the current terms. If you contact Amazon support and link the terms [ssl-images-amazon.com] they may manually credit you the $7 discount (as they did for me). YMMV in case they don't actually grant the credits. It may just be a bug and hopefully they fix it soon.

So not only is this the standard Amazon pre-order discount, you have to take the time to get Amazon customer service to actually apply the credit. Got it! Great deal.

You misunderstood what they were saying, which was that this isn't a deal worth reporting because it's a standard discount for all preorders for Prime members. I understand why because then it kind of opens the flood gates.

just tried to get the preorder discount using chat. looks like a dead end.

apparently, amazon quietly added that the discount doesn't apply to re-releases.

Is this a re-release? It's the first time releasing for consoles since coming out of early access, so I hope they don't consider early access as an original release otherwise this discount just got way more limited

Not only is this not a slick deal, just the regular pre order price for prime, but it's also more expensive than the digital version.

Which is typical for Switch games, since the cost for a cartridge is more than a Blu-ray Disc, which is why the physical version costs more on Switch.

This game is worth having a physical copy of. All these digital stores will go away someday and people won't be able to download their purchases.
Several great OG Xbox games come to kind including Outrun, licensing changes and just the companies eventually pulling the plug on the entire service.

I'll be getting as many of these games on a physical release. Probably not a stock price today, but it's worth knowing you're getting a working copy if you care a out the game, and this one is great.

Say it with me. No preorders (stupid EA. I know they didn't make this game, but EA made me heasitant)
