Pros
If you're a Fallout franchise fan looking to collect everything related to the series, you're probably not going to find a better deal than $2.99 for the steelbook in new condition.
A chance to purchase new at a bargain price before it becomes a secondary market item exclusively.
Cons
Shipping more expensive than actual deal if not picking up in-store.
Fallout 76 is not currently held in the highest of regard. Resale speculation wise, though a new condition steelbook will naturally rise to more than $2.99... It will be capped by the game's overall perception and Metacritic User Score.

Best Buy Deal Link:

Collectors of everything Fallout have an opportunity to add the Fallout 76 Steelbook to their collection at a bargain price of $2.99 over at Best Buy. Now shipping is $3.99, more than the deal itself, which could stop the deal in its tracks for some. However, the Steelbook might be available locally in your town’s Best Buy, taking the shipping cost out of the equation. Future resale value on the secondary market will definitely rise above $2.99 for a ‘New’ condition copy but this is not an item to hoard for resale purposes. Fallout 76 did not fare well with fans with a low Metacritic User score whether on the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One so this is one for the true fans. The type that wants to ‘collect them all’ so to speak but has been scared off by Fallout 76’s icy response to invest until now.

Fallout Collector’s items in general might have lost some of their prestige post-recall of the Fallout Power Armor helmets due to mold as reported by CNET. A quick search on eBay will yield quite a few Fallout 76 Steelbooks at prices at similar, marginally higher prices. The primary difference being quite a few are pre-owned and the usual question of authenticity for new copies without an assuring mark like seal apparent. If you’re looking to definitively get a New condition Fallout 76 Steelbook, the price is unlikely to get any lower, Metacritic perception or not.

Once Best Buy sells out of the stock for these, it’s pretty much a wrap on guaranteeing yourself a New copy. Prices will obviously rise in the secondary market to reflect the change once it happens, and while it’s unlikely to drastically go up, it will still be more. To be clear though, this isn’t a Resident Evil 2 Steelbook situation, the rarity of this Steelbook is still considered fairly common.

It all comes down to how big of a Fallout collector you are. Are you intent on collecting as many items from the series as reasonably possible? Are you a collector of gaming Steelbooks? Or are you casually interested and significantly deterred by the price of shipping costing more than the Steelbook in question? There’s likely some time to decide on these but stock will not last forever…

Discount Percentage: The sale price for the Fallout 76 Steelbook is 50% off than its already discounted $5.99 current regular price.

Deals Disclaimer and Insight

* Live Game Deals publishes deals as they are posted live on their corresponding site and as such prices might change hour to hour and occasionally minute to minute, second to second… Or even expire entirely/sell out! No deal is forever. Due to the nature of changes, keep in mind that price accuracy is dependent on the day and time of the post. If a couple of months have passed since a deal post was published, chances are there’s been pricing changes.

Most of the time in the Video Game world, that means prices might have dropped further or remained slashed at their prior sale price. But in the digital universe, every once in a while a game might get delisted due to licensing issues or any myriad of reasons. Not necessarily with a warning of its impending delisting either. Choose wisely if you really want a game!

PSN Game Deals are up for the week and feature an Elder Scrolls Sale with Tamriel Unlimited at $12.89 ($9.89 – Plus Members) for the PS4 as its centerpiece.

Here’s the full rundown and links to every item on sale!

The Elder Scrolls Sale Rundown

Note: Offers End on 4/18/17 (Tuesday) at 8:00 am PT / 11:00 am ET.

PlayStation 4 Game Deals:

Uncommon Discount:

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited – $12.89 ($9.89 – Plus Member)

Complete Experience:

The Elder Scrolls Online: Gold Edition – $35.99 ($29.99 – Plus Member)
The Elder Scrolls Online: Gold Edition Premium Bundle – $59.99 ($49.99 – Plus Member)

Addons:

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited – 750 Crowns – $6.79 ($5.99 – Plus Member)

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited – 5500 Crowns – $27.99 ($23.99 – Plus Member)

PSN Game Deal of the Week:

If you’re looking to give The Elder Scrolls Online series a try without a large investment, Tamriel Unlimited at $12.89 ($9.89 for PlayStation Plus Members) is a solid deal. There’s no active subscription required anymore to partake in the game so you don’t have to worry about hidden costs.

PSN Game Deal Weekly Conclusion:

There’s nothing that necessarily jumps out of you in this week’s sale. MMORPG fans that somehow missed out on trying out on the series are best served in this week’s PSN Game Deals, the rest will probably wait it out.

The Gold Edition bundle and especially the Gold Edition Premium bundle are still a bit too pricy, especially for a digital purchase. Though the complete experience bundles are still fairly recent with a release date of September 9, 2016, Tamriel Unlimited was originally released on June 9, 2015.

The titles are going to be a bit dated by now, so this week’s PSN Game Deals are purely for the hardcore MMORPG crowd.

Tamriel Unlimited for the PlayStation 4 averaged a 74 on Metacritic by official critics and a 7.6 user score.

Check out last week’s PSN Grand Theft Auto Sale to get an idea of what weekly game deals you might be missing out on. Sony occasionally holds a flash sale on PSN which you should always keep an eye out for.

Hopefully another flash sale will arrive on PSN this weekend!

Conclusion:

This week’s PSN GTA Sale is packed with Instabuys of truly great classics. GTA has never failed to live up to its name, the quality of these title is top tier with literally endless replay value. There’s not enough time in a day, month or even a year to fully explore every nook and cranny of GTA V. If you’re new to the series and looking to discover its past, Vice City is an excellent place to start. One of the true legendary classics of gaming history.

The Cash Card bundles are only worth it if you’re purchasing GTA V for the first time and believe you’ll be spending a good portion of your gaming sessions playing online. If you’re only thinking about logging on once or twice you’d be better off getting the GTA V and San Andreas bundle for single player action. It’s all about how you feel about GTA Online, and multiplayer action in general in your GTA experience.

PSN Deal of the Week:

The Deal of the Week is GTA’s Trilogy with all three PS2 titles in one bundle for essentially $21 dollars. You’re likely gonna buy all of them at one time or another, why not just get the bundle and save a few bucks? Runner-up is the Vita GTA Stories bundle with chapters many have never encountered before. It’s a perfect time to break out the Vita or PSP to play GTA on the go and in general to experience a completely different side of GTA.

Deal Research Based on the Past:

Check out March’s PSN Batman Sale to get an idea of what weekly game deals you might be missing out on. Sony occasionally holds a flash sale on PSN which you should always keep an eye out for.

Though it seems the days of a $1 dollar per game style flash sale are over, there’s always a couple of gems discounted just enough to be must buys.

Rockstar games see sales on the PlayStation Network about semi-regularly, so if you can’t spare the cash right now… There will likely be another chance. Their lineup is not quite as regularly discounted as Ubisoft or Activision’s however, so there could be a month or even three month lull before the next Rockstar sale. If you truly want these digital titles on the HD in the present, make the purchases.

Some might want to get nostalgic with the classic PS2 titles and even explore how GTA games have changed and evolved with each iteration. Others might want to rediscover the modern masterpiece that was GTA V and its rich locales, fully remastered. Then there are gamers who want to simply dive into some online action once in a while who as mentioned before would be served by the cash card bundles ahead of time. A GTA experience is always personal.
