    Cheap(er) video games from all around the place.

    I looked around and didn't see much of a thread for this, so I figured it'd be a good thing to start one. I like buying things for cheap, and I'm sure some of you all too. If you see a good deal, post it on here. Include a date when you found it, so we know how likely it is to last.

    I'm putting down the gold box deals of the day at Amazon for 3/22/10. Basically, there's one item that's discounted all day, and 4 other things ("lightning deals") that are discounted for about 3 hours at a time. The games aren't revealed until the discount applies, but Amazon does give some broad hints (and some really specific ones to).

    Amazon:

    Dante's Inferno for $40 (PS3 and 360, all day)
    Tekken 6 for $20 (PS3, expires at 1 PM Pacific)

    RPG discount from 1-4 PM Pacific (maybe ME2 for PC?)
    Lego Indy from 4-6 PM Pacific (not sure which platforms)
    PS3 Game from 6-8 PM Pacific (Hint is "Wave around your PS3", some kind of eyetoy game?)
    MMA Tapout from 8-10PM Pacific (not sure which platform)


    If you want instantaneous updates, look up AmazonDeals on twitter.

    Well all the games that are on sale today for Amazon's Gold Box deal are for the PS3. As for the "RPG that you might have played on your 360" it could be Star Ocean: The Last Hope, but that's just my guess.

    Oh and Amazon has Persona for the PSP for 16 bucks. I was planning on getting it, but if SO:TLH is on sale today as well, I might as well get both of them.

    I know I found Brutal Legend for 20 (used) at a GameStop. I was pretty blown away by that. Then I saw it new for 20 bucks at Walmart for the 360. A great deal if you ask me

    a good website is gamestracker.com. it automatically looks up the cheapest online price by area. I dunno how quickly it follows updates, but it's pretty reliable.

    for you european kids, I think MadWorld is 5 on zavvi. for that price, it's well worth a try.

    Today Amazon has a buy Bioshock 2 get Bioshock free deal for PS3 or Xbox 360. Additionally, they've knocked off $10.00 of the MSRP and made it $49.99 + usual no tax (for most of us) and free shipping.

    COD MW2 for both PS3 & 360 for $39.99.
    can't resist, bought way too many games lately

    The EA Store has a $20 discount on orders over $40 with use of a discount code (PAXEAST842).

    I am strongly considering making a preorder for FIFA World Cup, even though I know it might be... average. But I guess it's only every four years.

    EDIT: Apparently this ends today, so jump on it!

    The 2006 game was rather good. I'd get either World Cup or FIFA 10 myself.

    Fallout 3 for 20 bucks and i think the DLCs are all still $5 until tomarrow. you could end up getting the equivelant of the GOTY edition for a little less.

    That sounds like a good one, I paid full price for all that.

    Mirror's Edge is only $11.67 on Amazon. That's so worth it.
