Amazon has been pretty bad in selling video games this year! Haven't seen a "Good Deal Title" from Amazon in a while. Seems like to get a deal from amazon, one must PM prices from other competitors first. tsk!


RDR GOTY was $20 recently, as was GTA IV complete. I'd been waiting on RDR for a while (bought GTA at launch) so I consider that a good sale. Otherwise, Amazon has been lacking this year especially compared to BB.

i got insect armageddon for maybe $15 a month or so after it came out on a gold box deal, sometimes they are sweet..


The "penny deal" was the sweetest one. I can't really knock Amazon too much. Their deals still blow anything Best Buy or GameStop has out of the water. Heck, I just got Rage: Anarchy Edition for the 360 for $9.99 shipped last week. Their Gold Box just kind of sucks. The unannounced deals, or lesser known deals, are the ones that I usually jump on.

Lollipop Chainsaw was already 25% off on release day. How much cheaper do you expect them to make it now? :lol:


I want it to be $ 29.99

On the console front. In the PC Download realm, Amazon has been top notch with their deals. $10 SSFIVAE, $7 Divinity 2, $10 Dragon Age Ultimate and Dragon Age 2 ($10 for both DA and DA2) and more.

I work most of the day tomorrow. Damn it all if I actually miss a good deal.

Need to prep my phone so I can keep up with this.

Get the Amazon deals app, and look thru the "upcoming deals" list, and if anything looks to be of interest, (sometimes the description is pretty easy to guess, sometimes not), set the "remind me" option in the app. Then, choose that moment at which the deal begins to go on a break at work.

Seems like Amazon has been using sales to off load their huge stock of shovelware games. The only good sale I can remeber is the B2G1 on Vita games back in February. Would be awesome if they included Amalur in a sale. Been meaning to pick that up for a while.

I thought it started at 10pm on the 25th, central time. I now realize it starts at 2am on the 26th central time. Do I need to set my alarm for 2am, or can it wait until 7am when I normally wake up? Will the main deal run out before 7am (5am pacific)? Will there be hourly deals between 12 and 5 pacific that I'll miss if I don't set an alarm? I don't know how finicky these are. And yes, I know, they almost always suck. I guess I'm just acting like it'll be awesome just in case.

(Personally, I'd like to see Diablo III at a nice discount, or how about Dragon's Dogma? Yeah, yeah, that'd be the ticket.)

Diablo III discount


Probably won't see one of those for about a year. This is Blizzard we're talking about.

Yeah, I remember at one point I really wanted Warcraft 3, and this ways like years upon years after it came out, and it was still full price. You never know though! Things change sometimes. Amazon does kooky stuff. :) I will have some hope.

I'd love for a nice deal on Arkham City GOTY. I've got a nice amazon giftcard from trading in textbooks just waiting to get used.

I'm hoping for Ghost Recon FS but I doubt they'll have it on sale

Amazon went from having great deals for a long time to now just straight out bad Andover priced games they think are steals.

Bestbuy and gamefly has beaten amazon when it comes to deals on games along with Kmart

So here is hoping today this will be a great sales. Get rid of some games from last 2011- to first half of 2012.

Hoping for Max Payne at $35 or less.

You can now laugh at me for what will surely not happen.

Prove me wrong, Amazon... prove me wrong!
