Big Deal on the Internet: Ni No Kuni & Free 1600 MP with Xbox Pre-Orders

Another Tuesday, another big game release with Ni No Kuni finally arriving in North America.

Unfortunately we found only one legitimate store selling below list price. A whopping two dollars off from J&R makes Ni No Kuni $57.99 with free shipping and no sales tax except for NY residents. As an exclusive PS3 title, we think it's unlikely the game will receive sizeable discounts any time soon. So far, critics and user reviews seems fairly positive, and the game is winning raves from fans of traditional JRPGs.

As for upcoming Xbox 360 titles, there's an excellent deal offered by Microsoft Store. Pre-order select Xbox 360 games and get a bonus 1600 Xbox LIVE points for free - a $20 value. Eleven titles qualify for this bonus, with the most noteworthy being Dead Space 3 Limited Edition, South Park: The Stick of Truth, Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider, Crysis 3 Hunter Edition, and Gears of War: Judgment.

We see two solid deals at Amazon this week. Tuesday's "Gold Box Deal of the Day" is Far Cry 3 for only $34.99 with free shipping. That's the lowest price ever by $5 for the December 4th release, and it's $25 off the usual price of $59.99. Also, Amazon is offering a THQ Mega Pack with 19 popular THQ games for $24.99. Popular titles included: Darksiders II, Saints Row: The Third, and the Warhammer 40k series.
