Officially unofficial gaming deals thread
  • Games are expensive, there is no hiding this fact. "In this time of economic crisis" we need to pinch every penny and get the most for our dollar. We use the resources of the Noobtoob podcast and the various other offspring podcasts and review forum (gulp) to know which games to buy, and which to avoid. However, just knowing which games to buy is half the battle!

    This is why we, the staff, have decided it would be a good idea to create a central hub for all you bargain hunters to post deals you find. I only ask that you guys follow some very simple guidelines:

    1) Please post the source for the deal (Be it CAG, Joystiq, whoever). If you come across a deal in a store, please post YMMV which means "Your mileage may vary".

    2) Please post what region the deal is for. This helps people from different countries find relevant information.

    3) If possible, post the time frame of the deal (ex.. Jan 5 - 10).

    Examples:

    [Canada] [Expired]
    Amazon.ca:
    12+1 Xbox Live Gold Subscription - $47.99
    Source


    [Canada]
    At Block Buster Video:
    RSV2 ($10) / Endwar ($30) / Assassin's Creed ($15) - 360

    Happy hunting!
  • Excellent idea for a thread - Not sure why we've never had this before! I'll post whatever I find!

    I'll start off with my favorite store

    Amazon.com has 10% off video game accessories right now Amazon

    as well as Gears of War 2 and 3 months of XBL for $54 bucks.

    This is for US only
  • I got one. This Sunday, in the US (not sure of Canader) Ninja Gaiden 2 is $9.99 at Best Buy. Pick it up if you own a 360.
  • I checked at Canadian Best Buys and Ninja Gaiden is still $60.00 the $10.00 deal is US ONLY.
  • Ok, I came across the following offer tonight in the most surprising place possible ASDA. I seriously never thought I'd buy a game from a Supermarket but I have and check it out below!

    Apparently this week Zellars is have a deal where if you buy one video game accessory, you receive the next one 50% off. From the thread I found this on, it apparently works with XBL point cards. Not too sure though, so we'll see tomorrow when the flyer starts.

    Edit: This isn't a gaming deal, but still a freaking good deal.

    [Everyone Pretty Much]
    Amazon is selling the complete boxset of the TV series "The Wire" for $81.99 USD. I really shouldn't have bought it, but it was way too good to pass. The total cost for someone living in Canada is $127. Highly, highly recommended you all buy it.

    Here's the flyer. Sorry for the shit quality, my scanner won't run for some reason.

    Here's another game related item in the same flyer:

    [spoiler:c4cdb7f13e]image[/spoiler:c4cdb7f13e]

    Update: This deal does work with points cards. At least Wii points. When I went to Zellers I got 4000 Wii Points for $30 CND. They did not have any XBLA Points cards there.
  • This deal is mostly beneficial for people in the PAL territories.

    Street Fighter IV PS3 and 360 available for preorder at cdwow.com.au

    PS3 and 360 versions

    $62 Australian which is:

    $40 US or $49 Canadian or $31 Euros or $29 GB Pounds.

    Edit: Forgot to add that it is free shipping worldwide and I do not know how long this deal will last.
  • Some good news for fellow Canadians.

    EbGames, Best Buy and Futureshop are all selling the game over the the MSRP at $69.99 canadian. That's not right at all.

    Now we can pre-order the game at amazon.ca for $59.99:

    xbox360: SF4
    PS3: SF4

    Now on to the good part:

    If you enter the code MAPNEWNCSAVE you get $10 off on a purchase of over $40.
    There are conditions:
    1- Need a new account
    2- Need a credit card that has not been used on amazon.ca (maybe, not confirmed)

    I got SF4 for $49.99 + free shipping + taxes

    This code works with any item, as long as you meet the conditions.

  • Amazon is selling Dead Space for the 360 and PS3 for $46.99!! The deal gets better though! If (when) you use the coupon Chainsaw talked about you get the game for $36.99 with free shipping. With tax, you get one of the best games in 08 for 40 bucks. Not bad, eh?

  • HMV sells their SF4 games for 59.99 CAD. I personally was not pleased to hear that SF4 was going to be 69.99 (CAD) at futureshop, bestbuy, EB and pretty much all major retailers. But today, i stopped by HMV near queen st. and john st. (in toronto) and they had plenty of copies left as well as a good 59.99 price tag for the game. For Canadian gamers who are thinking of getting Street Fighter 4, you should check out your local HMV and save 10 bucks. Oh, and the collector's edition was $ 79.99 CAD, instead of 89.99 elsewhere.
  • seriously? but i was on the hmv.ca websiste and they listed it for 69.99 omg what should i do?? should i just walk over to futureshop or take 20 minute bus to hmv... and find outs it's 69.99 .. i'm still debating whether i should get it... i have like 3 exams to study for and 4 more games that i need to finish up before the end of this reading weekk ahhh

    If you are a PS3 owner and don't have this game - BUY NOW!. Game of the year for most here on the forum, and this price is excellent. Easily 50+ hours of game play coupled with great humor, atmosphere, and game mechanics. What are you still reading for? Go buy it!

Howdy, Stranger!
