Looks like Horizon will have life beyond the initial knock Elden Rings made on it

Horizon is up so much because retailers bundled it and GT7 with PS5s. Elden Ring wasn't bundled.

Really? A quick search on Amazon Tesco, Game, Curries and I couldn't see a single bundle...

Ah, thanks. Only read the VGC write up. Makes sense the deals are gone if it was just for easter

Seems like there actually were some PS5s to be had for once, that's great to see. A bit sad to see Forgotten Land dropping 5 whole spots though, it's a really great game and probably HALs best one since Melee.
