Final Fantasy XIV Digital Sales Resume at 25% Off

A Realm Reborn is uh, Reborn again? Third time's the charm, they say.

On its August 27th release day, the hit MMO Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn was too popular for its own good. In SimCity-like fashion, FF XIV's population overloaded Square Enix servers. Soon after, Square Enix paused sales on digital copies, and for about 3 weeks, interested gamers waited on the sidelines.

Thankfully, sales have now resumed on digital copies, and you can find the game at the Square Enix Store and other digital retailers for $29.99. But for bargain hunters, why pay full price when you can get 25% off FFXIV: AAR at GMG? The Standard Edition is now only $22.50 and includes 30 days of game time. The same coupon works on the Digital Deluxe Edition (which comes with more in-game goodies), dropping the price from $49.99 to $37.50.

On the console front, Grand Theft Auto V hit the shelves today for the Xbox 360 and PS3. If you feel no need to rush out and buy a copy at the local brick and mortar (props for the self-control given the game's 98 Metascore), Dell Home throws in a bonus $25 online gift card with your GTA V purchase. The card arrives via email after the product ships and carries a 90 day expiration - a decent incentive if you're planning to buy something from Dell in the near future.
