Rise of the Tomb Raider Price Cut Keeps It On Top Selling List

While initially we didn’t think Rise of the Tomb Raider on the PC would fare well in the sales chart given Microsoft’s play on exclusivity, things took a different turn last Thursday when Square Enix’s latest title got released. The publisher tossed up an immediate 10% off discount on Steam Store, cutting the price down to $53.99 (to the annoyance of some gamers). It has since then consistently been the #1 top seller through the weekend on Steam Store.

 

Over at GMG, the situation is the same albeit with an even more aggressive discount. Coupling the publisher 10% off deal is GMG’s “hidden” 25% off code, making Rise of the Tomb Raider only $40. It too, has remained as #1 on the charts (across region) at the number two digital retailer. It looks like the magic price is indeed $40 (more sensible for an almost three months old game, regardless of platform).

 

Finally, some interesting console deal this weekend includes decent condition pre-owned PlayStation 4 units on sale at Best Buy for only $200. They’re missing controllers but most will include power adapter. In our opinion Best Buy is often overcritical of hardware condition, so don’t be surprised if these “satisfactory condition” units only have very minor blemishes.

 

There is actually also a cheaper $190 pre-owned PS4 deal available after coupon PS42416 – but this is for the glossy older models (vs. the matte newer model above). And conditions are mostly in “fair” – so we think an extra $10 for nicer, newer units makes a lot more sense.
