As we head into the Christmas season video games deals are showing up everywhere. Console titles that didn’t sell well during Black Friday are going on sale like it’s nobodies business, the PC Gaming Winter sales are starting up, and the PS4 Slim and Xbox One S are in the midst of a price war, heck there’s even a refurb Wii U deal from Nintendo. For the sake of your wallet, it’s a great time to be a gamer.
In terms of games deals, discounts can be found at every major retailer, but not on every title at every major retailer – you really need to hunt if you’re looking for something specific. The World of Final Fantasy, for instance, just got cut to $25 on the PS Vita which is a historic low and significantly cheaper than the drop to $45 they have going on the PS4 version. Amazon has God Eater 2: Rage Burst Day One and Destiny – The Collectiondown to $25 a piece – both huge new lows. Best Buy is running a Buy 1, Get 1 40% off sale on all Wii U and 3DS games, which is uncommon discounts on Nintendo titles.
If you’ve been living under a rock it’s understandable you missed the Microsoft v Sony console price war. This week both the Xbox One S consoles and PS4 Slim’s are all $50 off with the cheapest 500GB consoles going for $250. GameStop has the best overall deal on a PS4 Slim though, offering the same drop to $250 plus a $25 Gift Card bonus. The Xbox One S is probably best had at Best Buy, where they are offering three insanely good bundles: 1) the first with a free wireless controller and 3 Month Xbox Live Gold for $255 (bonuses well worth the extra $5 compared to other retailers) plus a Xbox One S Minecraft for $229 with a $30 Best Buy gift card, making it essentially a $200 console.
Finally, we should mention the PC gaming Winter Sales have starated up. GMG began their 2016 Winter Sale on Monday with new lows on the Valve Complete Pack for $17.09 and Civilization VI for under $40 (plus about 1,000 other decent deals). Today GamersGate began their Christmas Sale with $5 Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor and $25 Tom Clancy’s The Division as to two big highlights, with plenty more in the works.
