Amazon restricting sales of certain video games to Prime members only

by on April 22, 2016

Amazon UK appear to be restricting the sales of various video games to Prime members only.

This means if you’re not a member of Prime, you can’t buy games like the PlayStation 4 versions of Grand Theft Auto V, Rainbow Six Siege and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate directly from Amazon. Those who are not members appear to be forced to buy from third-party sellers.

When attempting to purchase one of the affected games, the page will display a message reading “Exclusively for Prime Members” along with an encouragement to join the service, which costs £79.99 per year. See the screenshot below.

“Prime-Exclusive items are products for sale on Amazon that can only be purchased if you’re a member of Amazon Prime,” Amazon says on its website. “As a Prime member, you can choose from millions of Prime-eligible items sold on Amazon.co.uk.”
