Apparently summer has been equated with gaming discounts. PlayStation is hosting its summer sale, Amazon just fired up its own, I’m sure we’ll see Steam’s any minute now, and I’m writing up a post about solid deals waiting for gamers on the Xbox 360.
Microsoft will roll out a handful of deals every day during their summer sale, which is set to go until July 5th (that’s this Friday). Today’s batch is actually pretty awesome. Here’s the sale bunch with links from Major Nelson.
|July 2nd Offers||Regular||Sale Price||Save||Savings|
|Assassin’s Creed 3||$39.99||$14.99||$25.00||63%|
|Far Cry 3||$59.99||$19.99||$40.00||67%|
|Max Payne 3||$39.99||$9.99||$30.00||75%|
There’s not a bad deal in that pile.
The only thing that has me even slightly bummed out about the sales for both Microsoft and Sony is that I won’t be able to play these games on their new consoles this fall. Just a bummer to stock up on tons of awesome titles now only to see them unplayable on new rigs in a few months.
What games interest you in that pile? For my money, Far Cry 3 and Borderlands 2 are slam dunks.
