If you try to get your hands on certain games from Amazon today, you might be left scratching your head. The company appears to have made a bunch of extremely popular titles, including Grand Theft Auto V, Rainbow Six: Siege, FIFA 16 and Assassin's Creed Syndicate, exclusive to Prime members.
If you haven’t subscribed to the service, that means you’d have to shell out at least £79 (for a one-year subscription) just to be able to order the games. Ain't nobody got time for that. It’s an unexpected move, but we can’t imagine it’s anything more than a temporary one.
Amazon issued the following statement to VideoGamer.com earlier today. "One of the many benefits of Amazon Prime is access to exclusive selection on a number of great products. Customers who are not Prime members can sign-up for a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime, or they can purchase those items from a Marketplace seller.” Yep, not much in that.
Fortunately, there’s a simply way around the block. All of the affected games are actually still available to buy through Amazon from third-party sellers, whether you have Prime or not. Take that, The Man. [VideoGamer]
