Titanfall 2’s Standard and Deluxe editions (PS4/Xbox One) are both on sale for $24.99 (GCU: $19.99) as Best Buy’s Deal of the Day.
Titanfall 2 was only released on October 28th, 2016, quite recent. It continues the trend of last Holiday season’s game dropping in price rapidly. Titanfall 2’s Deluxe Edition originally retailed for $79.99, so it’s an immense drop. It’s unclear why both the standard and deluxe editions are on sale for the same price and one (standard edition) isn’t lower than the other. Best Buy might be trying to clear stock.
While Titanfall 2 didn’t set the world on fire or create hype the way the first one was suppose to turn the genre upside down, it was a well reviewed game. It averaged 89%/87% (PS4/Xbox One) on Metacritic. User reviews on the site were pretty similar averaging an 8.4/8.1 (PS4/Xbox One). Meaning there wasn’t too much mainstream review inflation, it stayed consistent.
Titanfall 2 Resale Value: Sticker Price
It’s a domestic born US made game by a relatively new studio published by EA. It’s unlikely to hold resale value past the original sticker price, though the Deluxe Edition may go up in coming years. Titanfall 2 likely had a large print run as most games from EA do, EA games typically are heavily printed and discounted. Though a bit less than say a Ubisoft game. This is not a game deal made for hoarding with future ambitions. This is a game deal for gamers looking to try out the new Titanfall or get into the series for the first time.
Titanfall 2 Rarity: Common
It’s not going to be too rare of a game. You don’t have to keep it sealed (unless you want to), chances are it will be available for years to come, no resellers needed. It’s unlikely you’ll have to scour Ebay to find someone selling a new copy of Titanfall 2.
Difference between Titanfall 2 – Standard and Deluxe Editions:
The difference between the two versions of Titanfall 2 appear mostly superficial. Skins for the Titans themselves. Here is the official description:
“Deluxe Edition Content
Stand out on the battlefield with Prime upgrades for Ion & Scorch, available this December. Beyond skin colors, these modifications upgrade the physical look of your Titan, change the sound effects and even offer up devastating new executions. On day one, customize every Titan with instant access to exclusive Excalibur Chrome Warpaints and Thunderbird Nose Arts. The Splinter Ocean and Quantum Ocean Camos are also included and are ready to be applied to every Titan, Pilot, and weapon in the game. Get all this content when you purchase the Titanfall 2 Deluxe Edition.

Final Game Deal Review: Buy if you’re a fps fan, not for collection or resale purposes.

Video Game Deals Preview for 12.22.16:
Today’s Video Game Deals Live Broadcast features the top deals for Best Buy’s Gamers Club Unlocked members. GCU is making an impact for the holiday season!
The GCU deals are in full effect with some of 2016’s biggest names and Triple AAA titles including Gears of War 4, ReCore, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and much more! While most of the selection is unlikely to gain Rarity or High Resale Value, it’s a gamers’ oasis if you’re looking to sample 2016’s newest video game releases.
If you’re an XBOX One owner looking for an opportunity to try out the new Dead Rising 4, the time is now. As Best Buy’s GCU discount brings the game down to $31.99, quite a deal considering it was only just released on December 6th, 2016.
Steam Deal of the Day:
PC owners will be pleased with Amazon’s deal on the Steam link for just $19.99. That’s 30 dollars off the MSRP price (60% off!). This piece of tech allows you to stream your PC games to your TV. You can take the PC gaming experience out of the chair and into a comfy couch in a matter of seconds.
The GCU Deal Edge:
Gamers Club Unlocked 2-year Membership – My Best Buy [online Activation]
Gamer’s Club Unlocked membership at Best Buy is a must with the holidays just around the corner. When it comes to GCU discounts, they lead the pack for Video Game Deals today setting the stage with quality discounts on some games that competitors simply don’t currently have in stock. If the goal is simply get a game in new/sealed condition without a reseller involved at a good price they’re your best bet today.
Live Game Deals Tip of the Day:
At Live Game Deals we point out general trends and it seems this season’s worth of titles plummeted in price rather quickly, even the collector’s editions. There’s been no The Last of Us post-pandemic style collector’s edition that soared in price on Ebay after release.
Even the new Final Fantasy XV has seen sale prices early ($39.99 right now on Amazon). The competition is trending upwards in entertainment and if you’re looking for a safe investment as collecting goes, there isn’t one this holiday season. Nintendo titles are most likely to retain value or have upwards mobility in the resale market but reprints are becoming more and more common.
Companies have long smartened up to the Day One, Collector’s Edition, Limited Edition market and will short supply at release temporarily. Be on the lookout before paying full MSRP price, there could be a video game deal weeks or even days away from your fingertips.
