Today’s Video Game Deals Live Broadcast features the top deals from the king itself Amazon. It’s Digital Day, meaning End of the Year savings galore people!
Amazon’s Digital Day is busting out game deals on the classics from Final Fantasy (50%) on your mobile phone to Sim City 4 (75%) on Steam. If you’re a PC gamer looking to try out the new Titanfall 2 (33%) its price is reduced just in time for the New Year.
Steam Deal of the Day:
Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade is down to $19.99 (60%) on Amazon. Metacritic reviews have been rather mixed since its release in September (52 Critic Rating, 5.3 User Scores) but Warhammer 40,000 fans will likely wanna try out this latest reimagining of the popular franchise.
The GCU Deal Edge:
Gamers Club Unlocked 2-year Membership – My Best Buy [online Activation]
On Best Buy’s side we have even further reductions for Gamers Club Unlocked members with new releases Dead Rising 4 down to $23.99 for GCU folks, $29.99 regular price.
Meanwhile, Gears of War 4 is now down to $19.99 for GCU members, $24.99 regular price.
Both titles included free bonuses with Gears of War 4 including a free Limited Edition Mug & Coaster Set and Dead Rising 4 including a Mistletoe Ornament. Forza Horizon 3 has also been reduced to $23.99 GCU, $29.99 regular price. It appears this fall’s XBOX One lineup has quickly dropped in price.
Live Game Deals Tip of the Day:
The new releases have had their price literally tank quite quickly. It’s a customer’s market right now. You should be playing the waiting game… Especially since there isn’t much of a wait, remember Dead Rising 4 just released on December 6, 2016 and is way down.
Sure, the Metacritic reviews (73 Critic Rating, 4.2 User Scores) haven’t been so hot but this is way early, almost unprecedented. It means companies are more heavily impacted by consumer reviews websites than ever. The power of purchase and swaying general opinion is in the customer’s hands. Meaning companies rather drop price beyond expectation then risk stock gathering dust up on store shelves.
If you’re a gamer looking to try out the newest AAA title, now is your time. If you’re a collector, easy on going Day 1, you likely can get the same limited edition a month from now. Reseller wise, there’s nothing too enticing to hoard at the moment, best wait until the market presents an opportunity.
