The Sims 4 Release Day Deals

The Sims 4 Release Day Deals

image

EA holds a tight leash this time around, as release day deals on The Sims 4 are mostly limited to European gamers.

Sorry Sim fans in North America - no discount are available for you on today's release of The Sims 4. Across the pond in Europe or the UK? You're in luck. The game is still under pre-order status in Europe as the game releases on Friday, September 5th. You can use coupon NEVR14-U3AJ96-7004LF on The Sims 4 at GMG to drop the price from 44.99 to 36 in the UK, or from €59.99 to €48 elsewhere in the EU.

Pre-load is live for Friday's release of Dead Rising 3 on PC. Steam has the game with a 10% instant discount, while at GMG you can get that 10% discount and stack with the aforementioned 20% off coupon. If you're in North America, act fast and you can stack with an even better 23% off coupon code, dropping the price to $34.65. Preordering now from GMG means they will email you a Steam key right away. You'll want to plug that key into Steam ASAP and begin the large 25GB download so you're ready to go for Friday's release.

Deals are light on next Tuesday's release of Destiny, but Xbox gamers can snag a solid deal on the pre-order from the Microsoft Store: you'll receive a $10 Xbox gift code along with guaranteed free release day delivery if you order by September 5th at 2pm Pacific. Note that the delivery offer is only good if you live the continental US and have overnight shipping available in your area.

For FPS gamers in the US, Best Buy launched a 24 hour sale on the 2013 model Razer DeathAdder mouse. They've dropped the price to $39.99, which is the lowest thus far for 2014 and ties the previous best Black Friday 2013 price point. Shipping is free, and it's also available for store pickup.

Words cannot describe how temped I am by that Beyond Earth deal however the last time I broke my "No Preordering" vow I ended up minus $80 and with a few regrets so I'm not making that mistake twice.

Also I'm truly amazed EA launched something and my news feed isn't on fire with horror stories yet about how broken the game is. Amazing what happens when you bother to test your damn games before shoving them out the door.

Basically Europeans use a code to the a discount and still pay $3 more than the US. This shit is ridiculous. I can't even imagine how Aussies feel. They have it a bit more expensive, but they also have a much higher living standard than my country at least.
Also please tell me that one on this side is buying the Sims 4.

That GMG deal for Civ: EB usable as an Australian? Because no way in Hell am I paying the AUD$90 they are trying to flog it for over here. That deal gets the price down to AUD$41

edit: seems not.. oh well, guess no sale :(

edit 2: Praise OzGameShop! $49 price tag still.

I honestly don't want EA to go out of business. The company employs a lot of people and provides games many people enjoy, that might not otherwise see the market. However, their increasingly gross attitude towards the consumer has long been a point of much anger for me. So I can't say that I honestly want The Sims 4 to sell well. In fact, I would like it to do poorly - so poorly that EA rethinks their stance and the consuming public stands up for itself, recognizing that that they hold the power (the money) and EA is there to serve us. We mustn't let a business think they hold the cards and we mustn't allow ourselves to fall prey to greedy hostage taking of content and games we might otherwise want. The more we give, the more they are happy to take. And that's my rant on that.

There's actually a few games here that I've had on my wishlist for ages. But I have so many unplayed games at this point that I don't really want to add more backlog. Woe is me, right?

I think Civ Beyond Earth is safe to preorder.
Worst case scenario is you get a reskinned version of Civ5... which I played for 500 hours. So I have a good chance of getting my money's worth, even if it is "just" a glorified DLC.
