Splatoon Stories February 10, 2016

expiredGames/Apps: Evolve $10, Splatoon pre-owned from $26, Shovel Knight $20, freebies, more

Update (2/10 4:40pm):

In today’s best game/app deals, Amazon is offering Evolve on Xbox One and PS4 for $9.99 with free shipping for Prime members or on orders over $35. It regularly sells for between $15 and $25, and this is matching the lowest we have seen. GameStop has it for the same price, but with additional shipping fees. At just $10, if you skipped this one so far, now might be the time to give it a shot.

Other notable deals include pre-owned copies of Splatoon on Wii U for just $25.45 with in-store pickup or free shipping over $50 (Reg. $60, even with the shipping fee it’s a nice deal). This is the lowest total we have tracked on Splatoon since release. Other options include Shovel Knight for $19.99 at Best Buy (or even less for GCU members, Reg. $25+, matching low). Amazon is currently offering a number of LEGO Dimensions character packs from $7 Prime shipped (Reg, $15) including Aquaman, Wizard of Oz, Superman, Ninjago and more.

We’ve spotted another notable console bundle deal today after the big Microsoft sale and Walmart’s Uncharted PS4/PS Plus bundle. Deal Frenzy (98.2% Positive feedback) via eBay Daily Deals has the Microsoft Manufacturer refurbished Xbox One console with Sunset Overdrive, Ryse and Forza 6 for $239.99 shipped ($400 value or so). Here are a couple more: Trusted game dealer Antonline is also offering the Xbox One 1TB Holiday Value Bundle and a 1 Year Xbox Live Membership Card for $349 shipped ($440 value or so). While this is the lowest out-of-pocket price on a 1TB around, you may find better value in the current $399 + $75 gift card bundle deals at Microsoft. And over at Groupon, code EXTRA15 will knock the 1TB holiday bundle (3 games) down to just $329.99 shipped ($40 value). 

Down below you’ll find the rest of today’s iOS price drops including Hyper Square, To-Fu Fury, Big Photo, Til Morning’s Light, Frax and more. Heroes Reborn: Enigma for iOS is now free for the first time as IGN’s Game of the Month (Reg. $5) and Apple is offering the popular iOS video editing app ‘Videoshop’ for free ($2 value).

Black Friday is just around the corner now and we have seen just about every major retailer’s ad. On top of a number of solid deals on Apple gear, HDTVs and more, we can also paint a pretty accurate picture of what to expect when it comes to gaming. Walmart, Best Buy, GameStop and more will all be offering deep discounts on console bundles, games and accessories. Head below for a complete break down of the best options: expand full story

Splatoon Stories November 11, 2015

(Update 11/12 8:30am): Higher quality ad scans and more deals have been added this post.

No other retailer does Black Friday quite like Walmart. The crowds, deals, and hype are all over-the-top when it comes to the largest retailer in the world. Now that its Black Friday ad has leaked, we are finally getting a look at all of the deals Walmart will have to offer.

This year Walmart says it’s armed with “its deepest availability on the most-wanted products in stores and online” so you should have a better chance of getting the deals you want. You’ll be able to shop the sale online throughout Thanksgiving day or at your local store starting at 6pm.

The extensive ad features deals on large HDTVs, game consoles, iPads, iPhones, toys, and pretty much everything in between. Every item on the back cover of the ad is eligible for Walmart’s 1-hour guarantee (more info below).

Splatoon Stories November 10, 2015

Update (11/13 11:00am): It’s been a crazy morning, but we’ve got more deals. Best Buy added a number of pages and 300 items to its Black Friday ad, then took it down (for now). We have the latest pages from the ad and have updated our list of top deals below.

Best Buy has pulled back the curtain on its Black Friday plans and deals for this year. The jam-packed 27-page ad includes a tremendous amount of Apple gadgets, video games, HDTVs, media, and more. Best Buy stores are set to open their doors at 5PM on Thanksgiving, but many deals will go live online earlier in the day.

Don’t feel like waiting until the end of the month to shop? Some offers are available right now while supplies last.

Amazon has quietly given its Prime members another valuable benefit: discounts on recently released and upcoming video games. Just yesterday we shared a couple of these deals in our daily apps/games roundup. At the time we thought they were just a couple of one-offs. But now we’ve come to learn that these types of deals may be here to stay.amazon-prime-video-game-dealThese discounts cover select video game consoles, accessories, and games that are sold by Amazon direct. There isn’t an easy way to view all the current offers. The only way to identify a video game item as having special Prime pricing is to look for the “Amazon Prime member Savings” blurb (shown above) on each item’s listing.

star-wars-battlefront

Even Prime members on a free trial or discounted Student membership qualify for the special pricing. However, you won’t know the exact discount amount until you reach the final page of checkout. That means the advertised price never changes even if the item is eligible for Prime savings. So you’ll need to add the item to your cart and proceed to checkout to see exactly how much the discount is. Here are the best current video game deals for Prime members we’ve found so far:
