Only Prime members can buy these games and movies from Amazon

If you're not a Prime member, forget about buying Grand Theft Auto V for the PlayStation 4 or "Birdman" on Blu-ray.

Gaming website Videogamer.com has spotted several products on Amazon.com that were only for sale to Amazon Prime members. Games such as Grand Theft Auto V for the PlayStation 4 or the film "Birdman" on Blu-ray are not available to buy directly from Amazon, and potential purchasers see the following message: "This item, sold by Amazon.com, is currently reserved exclusively for Prime members."

These games and movies are, however, potentially available from more expensive third-party sellers via Amazon. The list of locked-out media also changes depending on your region. The UK-based Videogamer.com was not able to buy Far Cry Primal for Xbox One, but it seems to be available to non-Prime members in the US.

Business Insider reports that the list of excluded products isn't static and differs by country. Amazon did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but previously told Videogamer.com in a statement: "One of the many benefits of Amazon Prime is access to exclusive selection on a number of great products. Customers who are not Prime members can sign up for a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime, or they can purchase those items from a Marketplace seller."
