What makes a good video game deal? Today we answer that question by taking a look at three of this week's high profile price reductions.
Sonic 4: Episode 1 Price Drop

Remember Sonic the Hedgehog? Seriously, who didn't love Sonic the Hedgehog other than those two guys named Mario and Luigi? Well Sonic made a bit of a comeback earlier this year via the Sonic 4 Xbox Live download. For a while now it has been set at $15 / 1,200 Microsoft points. By the end of next week it will be available for $10 / 800 Microsoft points and $9.99 on the Xbox Live Marketplace and Playstation Network (PSN) respectively.

Verdict: It wasn't exactly costly before, but a new $10 price point is more than welcome. Deal.

Battlefield 3 Limited Edition Download

Amazon is offering a PC download of Battlefield 3 for 30% off. The pre-order price being offered this week is $41.99. That's a nearly $18 drop in price from the standard $59.99 available nearly everywhere else. That has Deal written all over it. If you prefer PC gaming over consoles, grab this game of the year contender ASAP.

Verdict: Deal

Steam's THQ Deals

Steam is currently offering some really good deals as part of their THQ Week 2011. With the exception of Saints Row: The Third and Space Marine, the entire THQ catalog is available for 33% off. As if that wasn't enough, you can also purchase the THQ Hits Collection (loaded with 15 games) for 50% off. That's a $100 value, now available for just $49.99.

Need I even say it? Deal.

That's it for this week folks. Be sure to follow my video game tweets via Twitter @SavingsGCapes. If not there, then I hope to see you all in the comments section below. Keep those thumbs limber and those quarters at the ready. Happy gaming.
