Yesterday Mortal Kombat 11 was released on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. And usually, with a big title such as Mortal Kombat 11 the price would stick at $60 for weeks without budging. But the brand new beat-em-up has already discounted on Amazon (bear in mind even anthem lasted five days before the price decreased)
Gamespot had initially reported that the PS4 price had dropped $5, but Amazon has since decreased the price even further with a $10 discount that now applies to all three consoles.
Does Amazon Have Too much Power?
Amazon has an advanced algorithm for price matching and its possible they are matching a random deal somewhere on the internet. However, regardless of Amazon’s price, there are probably better places to buy from such as target. Where if you purchase Mortal Kombat you get a $10 gift card, or Walmart who are also offering the same deal. You just have to add the game to your cart first. They will then ask for your name and email and once entered the price will drop to $49.94 for standard editions and $89.94 for premium editions.
The game received an 8/10 in GameSpot’s Mortal Kombat 11 review. “MK11 isn’t just a sequel for series fans and Netherrealm devotees, it’s a gateway into the realm of fighting games for anyone who has a passing interest in watching ruthless warriors beat each other silly,” wrote Edmond Tran. “Streamlined mechanics keep the act of fighting furiously exciting no matter what your skill level and comprehensive tutorials encourage you to dig into the nitty-gritty. There’s a diverse roster of interesting characters and playstyles, and the story mode is an entertaining romp.” This reassures fans that its not quality of the game causing the drop in price and it is most likely Amazons algorithm setting a price trends in the other major stores.
