It only took two years but the North America localized port is finally here.
The long-awaited North American version of Tales of Xillia hits the shelves today, with the PS3 exclusive released almost two years ago back in Japan. (In fact, it's been so long that even its sequel has now been released in Japan.) GameStop has a solid 15% coupon that works on the title now that it's in stock and ready to ship. Decent deal, especially given discounts on console games on release date are such a rarity.
The aforementioned sequel Tales of Xillia 2 was released back on November 1st in Japan, and the US and European localized versions will land sometime in 2014. At least we don't have to wait as long this time around?
On the PC side of things, the upcoming release from Overkill Studios Payday 2 landed a confirmed release date today of August 13th. If you're looking to preorder the PC download, GameFly has Payday 2 discounted 20% after coupon GFDAUG20. A worthy title for those co-op multiplayer types yearning to go on a high stakes crime spree. Steam-activated.
Speaking of co-op mutliplayer types... Green Man Gaming has a sale going this week on 4-pack Steam keys for select games. After coupon, group of 4 friends can pick up Chivalry Medieval Warfare for $20, or $5 apiece. Other cheap 4-packs include Frozen Synapse, Sanctum 2, Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed, with more listed below.
