Update (2/24 11:50am):
- Walmart is offering the Xbox One Wireless Elite Controller for $129 shipped. However, first time Jet buyers can grab it for under $127.49 shipped using code 15NOW at checkout. Regular $150, this is the best price we have tracked on the Elite controller.
- Amazon has the Hauppauge Digital TV Tuner and Video Capture for Xbox One for $49.99 shipped. However, it has been matched at Best Buy and new Jet customers can use code 15NOW to drop it to $42.49 shipped. It is regular $60 and this is the lowest we can find.

In today’s best game/app deals, as part of its Deals of the Day, Best Buy is offering up to $20 off select PS4 and Xbox One titles. One standout is Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Game of the Year Edition for $14.99 with in-store pickup or free shipping on orders over $35. That’s $15 under Amazon and matching the best price we have seen on the GOTY edition. Also a part of the sale, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Mad Max are both listed at $30. The Witcher is within $5 of the all-time low and the current best price, but you can get Mad Max on Amazon for $24.99 shipped on Xbox One right now (Prime only).
Released yesterday, Far Cry Primal is still down at $47.99 shipped for Prime members, not to mention the Best Buy GCU price. However, if you’re looking for an Xbox One, the official Newegg eBay Store is offering the Xbox One Gears of War Ultimate Bundle w/ a free copy of Far Cry Primal and an Xbox One Limited Edition Halo 5: Guardians Wireless Controller for $349.99 shipped. Combined together, that’s a $480 value for $350. The console bundle on its own goes for between $320 and $350+. Another nice bundle option is the Xbox One 1TB Rainbow Six Siege Bundle + a Headset and a $50 Newegg Gift Card for $406 shipped ($510 value).
Other notable deals include the recent PSN Critics’ Choice sale with up to 70% off digital PS4/3/Vita titles (be sure to grab a PS Plus membership to get the best prices). While Sony’s digital sale titles tend to be priced a bit higher or the same as physical titles, they do come with the advantage of not having to do anything but wait an hour or two for downloads.
Down below you’ll find the rest of today’s iOS price drops including Orderly, HoPiKo, OLO game, Toca Nature (+ other Toca games), Dr. Seuss apps and more. Exclusively for Toys readers, you can get 55% off ‘Civilization: Beyond Earth Collection’ for Mac (Steam code): $27 ($80+ value, lowest we have tracked by $3).
