Big Deal on the Internet: Battlefield 4 bonus & discount

Great preorder price and bonus for Battlefield 4...too bad you have to wait half a year for the release.

Despite its far-off fall 2013 release, Battlefield 4 is already available for sale at several retailers. Last Thursday, GameFly was the first to offer a substantial discount on the PC download, with Green Man Gaming following suit over the weekend. Both retailers offer the game for $48 after a $12 coupon. The best price in UK is also from Green Man Gaming, where you'll pay £36 after coupon. These preorders also include a Premium Expansion Pack. Although details of the Pack haven't been released, the preorder bonus for Battlefield 3 included the Back to Karkland DLC pack, so we assume the Premium Expansion Pack will be similar. And while the official release date hasn't been announced, we know that every year a new Call of Duty game releases the second Tuesday of November. To preempt the competition, Battlefield games tend to release the second-to-last Tuesday of October, making October 22nd a good guess.

Perhaps hoping to capitalize on the big Bioshock Infinite release, GameFly is now offering the first two Bioshock PC downloads in a Bioshock Dual Pack for only $4.99 - a discount of 90% off their combined list prices - and a one-time-use 20% coupon can drop it to $3.99. The deal expires Thursday. The coupon can only be used once per account, so only use it for this deal if you aren't buying a more expensive game from GameFly.

Thanks to a possible fluke, today's release of Defiance can be downloaded for $45 - a healthy 25% discount. According to a Green Man Gaming tweet, their generic preorder coupon code was scheduled to expire for the game today, but "defying" expectation, the code was still working at time of writing. Elsewhere the game is $60.

On the console front, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance dropped by $20 down to $39.99 with free shipping. That's the lowest ever by $7 since its February 19th release date. The next best price online is $50 at Amazon, and the title is available for both Xbox 360 and PS3 platforms.
