Overwatch is about to get released on Nintendo Switch meaning you'll be able to claim Victory! from the bus, the train, the plane, the toilet and wherever the hell else you take your Switch.
While it's a great chance for players to jump into the game via the Switch, chances are many gamers interested in trying it out will already own on it on console or PC. Just a heads up, the physical copy doesn't actually come with a cartridge but a download code so there's no real difference between buying the physical or digital copy unless you desperately need the box for your collection. Without further ado, here are the cheapest copies selling in Australia.
The brick and mortar stores are all pretty consistent with price but if you're not able to make it to a physical store, the delivery fee will be the major difference. JB Hi-Fi's $1.69 delivery fee will be hard to beat but Big W's not too far behind.
Brick and mortar stores
- Big W: $69 (+ $3.90 delivery)
- EB Games: $69.95 (+ $5.95 delivery)
- The Gamesmen: $69.95 (+ $6.95 - $14 delivery)
- Harvey Norman: $69 (+ $5.95 delivery)
- JB Hi-Fi: $69 (+ $1.69 - $3.50 delivery)
Amazon has finally been beat out on price with Ozgameshop offering the lowest cost at $53.99 and free delivery. If you're happy to not get a physical copy (remember, no cartridge anyway), Nintendo's eShop is offering the standard price with an immediate release when it hits 5am, Wednesday 16 October. Whether you can hold off a day or two to save yourself around $16 is your call.
- Amazon: $69 (free delivery)
- Gamory: $68 (+ $4.95 - $7.95 delivery)
- MightyApe: $68 (+ $5.90 - $14.49 delivery)
- Nintendo eShop: $69.95
- ozgameshop: $53.99 (free delivery available with code: HOLYSHIP)
Overwatch is finally coming to the Switch but everyone's curious to see how the thing's going to run, given the hurdles between porting PC and console games to a smaller handheld device.
