Video Game Deal or No Deal: Battlefield 3, Sonic 4 and Steam THQ
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
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
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.
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
