Amazon Makes Certain Games Prime Exclusive

Amazon making some games exclusive to Prime members.

Amazon Logo

Amazon’s range of “Prime Exclusive” items has been extended to include certain video games.  Said items now have the “Buy” box on the page replaced with a blue box inviting you to “Join Prime”, and you won’t be able to add them to your basket otherwise.

The list of games that are only available through Prime right now includes the PS4 versions of Grand Theft Auto V, Rainbow Six Siege and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.  Both the PS4 and Xbox One versions of games such as Battlefield Hardline and Far Cry Primal are also part of the initiative.  It’s not known if these are the only games included in this.  However, it is still possible to buy these games through third party sellers on the site.

How do you feel about this situation?  Let us know in the comments below.

  1. What in the… ? I understand incentives, but that’s going a little too far with it.

  2. It’s a bit of an odd decision. I just wonder what the balance will be between people signing up for Prime in order to buy certain items and people who just decide to go elsewhere. It’s not like there’s a lack of websites selling games.

  3. And with a membership in Gamer’s Club, Best Buy (in the US anyway) gives you 20% off any game (not just new ones) + reward points. What’s the reason not to just buy from them now?
