There are more than a few different deals from both Best Buy and NewEgg, including Dead Island: Riptide already dropping to $34.99 and The Last of Us at $49.99.
Wow, very quick sale for Dead Island.
Indeed. Quick enough for me to price match my Best Buy pre-order. $15 Dead Island Riptide for me.
Lots of games are dropping to that price point now. I got Injustice for 35 at Toys R Us, only 2 weeks after release.
you know, don't you guys hate it when they do this exclusive deal at retail stores, but the problem is that they brand their games with some logo saying this was only exclusive at gamestop, wal-mart, etc. It's hard to find a game with a cover that is free of those advertisements. I might purchase The Last of Us from Newegg from here on if retails continue with this pattern. I particularly hate Wal-Mart's way of branding their games because it makes the game look generic with something as little as title. Use a damn sticker.
That didn't take long.
I really enjoyed the first game, and as soon as I get my rig back, I'll be buying Riptide. I thought it launched at 40 dollars though.
It was $40 on PC ($30 if you went through GMG) at launch. $50 for consoles. They said they didn't want to charge full price so late in the generation. The game is super fun.
It did launch at $39. Not a drastic price drop. ;)
This is how much games should be period. I bet if games launched at these prices in the first place you may see a surge in new game purchases. Just my thought.
I rented it from Red Box and returned it in less then 12 hours. Oh which I was sleeping for 8 of those hours.
Just received it from best buy over the weekend and they refunded me the price difference after a quick phone call! Was able to get the free steelcase with it too, as they are still giving them away with the game at best buy online.
