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).

(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).

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.

While there are a number of bundles shipping with extra games on Amazon right now, this deal is the current best we can find ($400+ value).

Other notables at Amazon include the Guitar Hero Live 2-Pack Bundle on Wii U for $128.35 shipped (best we can find from a trusted retailer), Sniper Elite III on PlayStation 4 for $15.99 Prime shipped (Reg. up to $30) and LEGO Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin on Vita for $16.77 Prime shipped (Reg. $20+). Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is down to $31.99 Prime shipped (Reg. $40+, within a few bucks of lowest) at Amazon as well. 

The Kingdom Rush Frontiers games for iPhone and iPad have dropped down to the lowest we have seen since January and February of this year and iStudiez Pro is available for $1, also the matching best we have seen in years.
