Holiday Deals: Best Buy’s Xbox Odyssey, Amazon’s Bethesda Bonanza
Best Buy and Amazon have some new deals just in time for the holidays.
Starting with the latter, Amazon has an entire week of Bethesda game deals going, starting right now. Today’s deals include…
…and there will be other deals, including slashed prices on Dishonored, Rage, Fallout 3, and New Vegas. All deals seem to be on the download code versions of the above games (Steam codes for the uninitiated), so no box or fancy art, you grinch.
For those looking for deals on the next-gen side, Best Buy just added five new Xbox One bundles to their site.
- Xbox One with a 12-month Xbox Live subscription: $529.98 (good deal!)
- Xbox One with two controllers: $559.98 (not much of a deal when you think about it)
- Xbox One with Call of Duty: Ghosts: $559.98 (also not much of a deal)
- Xbox One with two controllers, 12-month XBL sub: $589.97 (not bad!)
- Xbox One with two controllers, 12-month XBL sub, and COD: Ghosts: $649.96
So two of the bundles aren’t deals at all — purely bundling for…bundling’s sake, I guess. The other three bundles have a savings of $30, which seems to be coming off the cost of the Xbox Live subscription. But money talks, so saving $30 on a brand new console bundle is pretty good, right?
Check out the GOG.com Winter Sale today, too. I hear they’re giving away FREE GAMES or something.
