Holiday Classic: 'Buy 2, Get 1 Free' Video Games

Cyber Week may be over, but the deal train runs straight through Christmas.

If you've got a gamer to buy for over this holiday season, Best Buy just launched a classic "Buy 2, Get 1 Free" sale on video games for most gaming platforms. In total, there are 880 games to choose from, including hundreds for the PS3 and Xbox 360, with 90 titles for the PS4 and Xbox One. Noticeably missing are the Nintendo Wii U, 3DS and Vita platforms, but the sale still should cover the majority of the gaming crowd.

If you missed buying a PlayStation 4 during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales, fret not - a new bundle debuted for sale just this week from Sony which gets you a PS4 and your choice of one free game for the same $399.99 standard console cost.

On top of that, Walmart is throwing in a bonus $50 gift card for those who buy the bundle through them. The free game is actually a download card that comes in the PS4 box and is redeemable on the PlayStation Network for either Destiny, NBA 2K15, Far Cry 4, or LittleBigPlanet 3.

Another new bundle to surface from Sony is the PlayStation Vita + Borderlands 2 for $199.99. This week, GameStop cut the price down to $169.99 - a full $30 cheaper than most retailers charge for the Vita alone.

Finally, on the PC front, two games are releasing this week, and both with huge discounts: Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Lara Croft And The Temple Of Osiris. Just today, the new Tomb Raider released on Steam for $19.99, but it's as low as $13.99 at DL Gamer after a 30% off coupon. Later this week, Final Fantasy XIII-2 will finally make its way to Steam for $19.99, but until Thursday's release date, the game enjoys a $3 instant discount to $16.99. On top of that, GMG has a 25% off coupon cutting the price to $13.50. Both of these discounts are from digitally authorized retailers - not sketchy CD-key marketplaces.
