Whether you’ve spent the week rediscovering (or just discovering) Dead Rising thanks to the brand new PC release, coming to terms with the changes made to Pac-Man Championship Edition 2, or you’re still recovering from the...let’s call it excitement, of Sony’s Tokyo Game Show conference. Whatever you’ve done with the week so far, it’s always nice to save a little bit of cash.
With that in mind, below you’ll find the best deals and offers from the past week in the world of video games, and various associated techy bits. As always, we do our best to make sure these deals are active and in stock at the time of posting, but there’s always a chance things can change at a moment’s notice, so keep that in mind.
EA is currently offering some deep discounts on some selected games of theirs. That is, if you don’t mind buying them and playing them using EA’s Origin service. Using the promo code ORIGIN50, you can get 50% off of a good selection of EA titles including the ones we’ve picked out as particularly nice and listed below. Check them out and don’t forget to enter that promo code.
It’s also worth noting that EA has also made all five expansions for Battlefield 4 free at the moment, so you may want to add all of them to your basket while you’re on Origin.
Over on Xbox Live, the Xbox One version of Mortal Kombat X is currently on offer for Xbox Live Gold members, bringing the price of the digital version down to $15 for a limited time only. It’s still discounted for non-Gold members, but in order to not miss out on the deepest of discounts, signing up for Gold is needed.
Meanwhile, on Steam this weekend, Warner Bros is having a weekend-long sale with up to 75% off their entire catalog. That catalog ranges from LEGO games to Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, and of course, the Batman Arkham series. Here are some highlights.
My personal pick out of all of these would be Bastion and specifically the edition of Bastion that comes with the soundtrack for only marginally more than the standard edition. The soundtrack is worth the extra cash.
Yes, it’s the Sonic Mania Collector’s Edition. This thing made headlines this week for two main reasons. It’s the ideal collector’s edition for SEGA superfans everywhere, and it’s only going to be available in North America. Needless to say, there were people who were very sad about that second part. But, if you do happen to be in North America you should know that Amazon Prime offer an extra 20% off video game pre-orders, meaning you’ll only be paying $55.99, rather than the full $69.99 if you decide to secure yourself a copy.
The Xbox One Elite Controller is a bit of a try-it-to-believe-it type of deal. A good amount of people who give this controller a go come away thinking it’s one of the best gaming controllers available today. Whether that justifies the $150 price tag is up for debate, but at the very least, you can save $30 by entering code EMCENEM46 at checkout over at NewEgg and only pay $119.99 for one of these beasts.
The PC edition of Fallout 4 has hit a nice low price over on Amazon US at the moment. Right now, you can pick up a boxed PC copy of the game for $18.99, which is one of the lowest prices it has ever been.
Meanwhile, also on Amazon, all three formats of Rainbow Six Siege are currently sitting nicely under the $25 mark. The PS4 and Xbox One versions are hanging around $24-$25 while the PC version is down to $22.36 at the time of writing. If you’ve been waiting on a price drop to pick up a copy of Siege, now is a very good time to jump on board, as the online community for this one has actually managed to grow over the last year.
Okay, that’s all for another week. As usual, please keep in mind that deals, prices and availability can change at any time, so sorry if that happens on any of the above. I’ll be over at Jelly Deals, scouring the information super-highway for more deals. Feel free to follow us over at Twitter or Facebook. See you next week!
