Big Deal on the Internet

Big Deal on the Internet

image

Welcome to "Big Deal on the Internet" - our weekly news post that brings you the biggest gaming deals across the internet every Tuesday.

This is the week of Thanksgiving, er, Black Friday and just so we all have a little bit to be thankful for, due to popular demand from last week's Big Deal on the Internet post, we have a little section of UK PC Downloads for our friends across the pond.

Today, we have the best prices on new releases Hitman: Absolution - Professional Edition and the PC version of Assassin's Creed 3. Or if you frugally abstain from new releases, there are a couple buy-somethin-get-somethin sales on used games from Gamefly and Best Buy worth checking out. Also notable: Mass Effect 2 is under the $10 mark.

Amazon has a slew of $2 PC download offers that come with an extra $5 credit to be used on select download games in 2013. But be aware that the bonus credits can only be used one at a time, not in $20 or (who we kidding?) $50 chunks. In the 2-buck pool you'll find 4 SEGA Genesis Classics collections each with 10 titles.

In hardware there are several solid 2ms monitor deals, Samsung 840 series SSDs up to $69 off next best price, and a Black Friday Dell XPS desktop that we found hidden but live on Dell's site.

I...

No Persona 4 Golden on Today's release?

I'm a big sad right now. :(

OT: This is really neat. I'll keep my eye on the PS3 sales section every Tuesday from now on.

Far Cry 3 for 25?

Excellent work guys!

I've got my eye on the UK PC Downloads section from this day forth,
Thanks.

I like this new feature! :D

Not that I'll be spending money on entertainment for quite some time but maybe I'll break out some Christmas money for myself... Who knows. :)

I noticed there's no deals from steam, but a lot of deals from the same vendors, green man, amazon, gamefly etc. Are all these deals purely based on who you get referral money from? Of course, steam gets a lot of free advertisement from you whenever there's an insane sale going on, especially during the seasonal sales. But it still feels a bit cheap that only "paid" deals are listed here, like one big article dedicated to earning maximum advertising money.

Just my 2 cents.

"Hmm hitman is really 32.50 dollar on green man gameing? Better check it out even though i already own it"
59.99 euro
-.-

Ah, so that's why there are no steam sales.
I'm usually either buying from Bol.com (Dutch website), Steam or a local retailer anyhow, so most of these sales aren't doing it for me.

Largely limited though it is, it's nice to see The Escapist taking feedback on board and adding a UK deals section.

amazon games can be activated in steam I believe so you buy from amazon but it can be in steam also not really many sales right now only ones that I see are d;c for cities in motion only two big eye catching thing is tomb raider really at least until 1:00 pm est time when they update their catalog

Steam Autumn Sale has started and it is going to take a chunk out of my wallet

Wow, this is nice. Even UK deals... too bad no Canadian ones (we usually get shafted with prices, and it is even worse because of how close we are to the US and so far from god)
Thank you for doing the legwork, guys

Yeah, sorry The Escapist, but what's the big deal here? Steam just whooped in and beat you to the sale :P

Game Over Videogames is also having a 50% off everything sale on Black Friday. They specialize in old consoles/PC games.

4 Days later and still no update regarding the Steam Autumn sale? Tsk tsk
