Is Amazon forcing people to use its Prime service?

Amazon’s latest attempt to convince more people to sign up for a Prime membership might not go down too well with the gaming community. Originally discovered by VideoGamer on Friday, it appears that Amazon’s Prime-exclusive items now includes several popular video games, including Grand Theft Auto V, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate and Far Cry Primal.

Several readers wrote in to VideoGamer this morning to complain about the fact that certain versions of video games were suddenly accompanied with the message “Exclusively for Prime Members.”

BGR.com reported the above which came via VideoGamer.com. To be honest this doesn’t surprise me and it wouldn’t surprise me if eventually more and more of what Amazon sells will be a “Prime” only product. The worry is that Amazon effectively destroyed a lot of its competition as it grew year after year and now it has more of a monopoly is free to pursue tactics like this. So what do you think about this?
