If you're looking to pick up a copy of Bioware's latest space epic, here's the cheapest copies you can find around the country and online.
PC: $59 PS4/XBO: $69
$59 for a retail copy on PC is a pretty good deal, considering EA are charging $89.99 through Origin for the standard edition.
Uniform price across all platforms, and parity with JB Hi-Fi on consoles.
Fairly standard for a AAA launch from The Gamesmen here. Worth noting that you probably won't want to get the PC version: it's a download code only, and the price doesn't match up well against online retailers offering the same thing.
PC: $89.95 PS4/XBO: $99.95
EB's running a deal where you can get any version of the game for $59 if you trade in a PS4, XBO or Nintendo Switch game. Probably not a bad deal, as most people probably have a game or two they don't play that they can offload.
(Online) PS4/XBO: $84 (In-store) PS4/XBO: $75
Press Start reported that Big W will be selling Andromeda for $75 in-store, but it'll set you back $84 through their online store.
Origin (PC Only)
Standard Edition: $89.99 Deluxe Edition: $99.99 Super Deluxe Edition: $119.99
The only difference between the deluxe and super deluxe editions is a weekly multiplayer booster pack every week for 20 weeks, which seems a thorough waste of money. The deluxe edition comes with the soundtrack, a range of skins and weapons, and some booster packs on the side as well.
Target Australia confirmed the price earlier this week via Twitter, as they often do. Fairly standard for a AAA game, really.
Decent offer from old mate Gerry, here.
PC (Origin key): $67.99 PS4/XBO: $73.99
Decent offerings, but if you buy anything bar the Origin key you'll have to factor in lengthy shipping time.
XBO/PS4 (US version): $79.71 PS4/XBO (Europe): $93
PC/PS4/XBO (download only): $78.11
Decent enough price for digital codes from Amazon. It'll be fun to see how prices for keys change once Amazon opens up properly in Australia.
PC (Origin key): ~$66-70
For those that have no qualms about buying through marketplaces, you'll have to fork out at least $66.
PC (Origin key): $61.18
Again, if you don't mind venturing into this part of the internet you can save a few dollars (although the boxed offer from JB Hi-Fi is still cheaper).
PC (Origin key): ~$58-66
Not for everyone, but the price is pretty reasonable if you don't mind buying from an aggregator.
So those are the cheapest copies of Mass Effect: Andromeda in-store and online. See a price you like, or are you holding off on Andromeda until later in the year?
