Best Buy Canada: Playstation TV Bundle | Was $140 Now $100

Good morning, my fellow gamers! Today’s deal at Best Buy is for a Playstation TV Bundle, which includes a DUALSHOCK 3 controller, an 8GB memory card, and a voucher that you could use to download The LEGO Movie Videogame. This bundle normally sells for $139.99, but you can now purchase all of this for $99.99! It’s a surprising deal, since the Playstation TV was just released fairly recently! You’ll also qualify for free shipping, which is always a nice bonus!

This Playstation TV Bundle can be a great gift for the holidays. You can play hundreds of games on it, since you could download many PS One and PSP classics. Trust me – Crash Bandicoot: Warped and Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night are still awesome games to play! It’s also compatible with most PS Vita game cards, so you could play your Vita games on the big screen!

It’s also compatible with the new Playstation Now service, so you could stream many great PS3 games with this Playstation TV. Finally, you could also play your PS4 games with this device – all you need is a PS4 controller, and you can wirelessly connect to the PS4 system in your home and play your games on another TV! Now that’s cool, and makes this device great for those that already have a PS4 system.

What makes this device interesting is the ability to download, rent, or stream movies, TV Shows, and music. It’s a versatile product that many people will have their eyes on during the holiday season!

This Playstation TV Bundle was just recently being sold for $139.99 at Best Buy, so you’re saving $40 with today’s deal. It’s also currently being sold at retail locations like Toys R Us for $139.99. Listed below is a snippet of a review of the Playstation TV from a satisfied Best Buy customer:

It’s a complete package for the casual gamer like me.

Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

MTC Clearance: Sony PS4 System And Vita Play Well Combo (Refurbished) | Was $650 Now $450

MTC Clearance: Sony PS4 System And Vita Play Well Combo (Refurbished) | Was $650 Now $450

This would be the ultimate present for video game lovers! Today’s deal at MTC Clearance will allow you to purchase a refurbished Sony Play Well Combo Set – it comes with a 500GB PS4 system and a PS Vita portable gaming system for just $449.99! The typical price for a new Sony Play Well Combo is $649.99, so you’d be saving $200 on this deal! When I calculated shipping, it came to $9.78 (Fedex 2 day shipping seems to be the standard option), so that should be the shipping price for this package.

The Sony Playstation 500GB PS4 & OLED Vita Play Well Combo comes with a 90 day MTC warranty, so no manufacturer warranty is included with this refurbished package.

I know that I’ve been on the fence regarding the purchase of a Sony PS4 system, but the Vita portable system is also pretty enticing. I know that I’ve got plenty of Nintendo 3DS games to play at the moment, and there aren’t too many Vita games that are luring me towards purchasing one, but it is quite the powerful little system.

The Vita is a great media player, and it also can link up to your PS3 and PS4 system. There are many cool things that you can do with this portable system, and in this package, you’ll be able to enjoy both the PS4 game console and the Vita right away! Titles that I’d love to try out on the Vita include Little Big Planet, Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, and Playstation Battle Royal (actually, if you have the PS3 version of the game, most copies allow you to automatically get a free download of the Vita version).

I haven’t had any luck finding these Sony PS4 And Vita Play Well Combo Sets for sale online, but if you were to purchase a PS4 and a PS Vita separately, it would be $449.99 for a PS4 The Last Of Us Remastered Bundle, and $199.99 for a PS Vita Borderlands 2 Bundle at Best Buy. Even though the PS4 And Vita Play Well Combo doesn’t come with any games and it’s refurbished, you’re still saving $200 from purchasing both systems.

I’ve included a brief review of the PS Vita from Metacritic below:

I love my 3DS, I sincerely do, but there’s no denying that this is a sturdier, sexier machine. What it lacks in gimmicks, it makes up for in features; where it falls down in terms of portability, it raises itself back up with vastly superior controls and an astonishing touch-screen display.

If you want the ultimate gaming package, you should consider getting this deal. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

PSN: Square Enix and Capcom Game Sale For PS3 PS4 And Vita Titles | Up To 70% Off (EXPIRED)

Posted by on September 17, 2014 at 9:00 AM

PSN: Square Enix and Capcom Game Sale For PS3 PS4 And Vita Titles | Up To 70% Off (EXPIRED)

Sony PS3, PS4, and Playstation Vita owners are in for a real treat this week! Square Enix and Capcom are both having a sale on many of their classic games that are available on PSN (the Playstation Network) – many popular franchises are represented in this sale, including Street Fighter, Mega Man, Resident Evil, and Tomb Raider. Until September 23rd, you can save up to 70% on some of these titles, which you can download straight to your PS3, PS4, or Vita system.

There are many great games that you can get some decent discounts on during this sale. Some of my favourites that you can get for a discounted price include Resident Evil 6 ($9.99, was $19.99), Super Street Fighter 2 HD Remix ($4.99, was $14.99), and Street Fighter III Third Strike Online Edition ($3.99, was $14.99). However, one of the most tantalizing deals is for Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition for the PS4, which you can get for just $19.99 (it typically costs $39.99 at Best Buy and Future Shop.)

I can honestly say that Capcom and Square Enix are two of my favourite video game companies, especially back in the days when I was playing my Super Nintendo and PS1 avidly (my other favourite companies at the time were Nintendo and Konami). There are many great games to choose from in this sale, and you’ll be able to play them soon after downloading them! Click here to check out all of the games that are currently featured in this sale.

There are many games in this sale that I can reflect on. From Devil May Cry to Hitman, there are so many to choose from. However, I’m going to leave you with a brief review for one of the few PS4 titles in this sale, Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition (from a satisfied Future Shop customer):

Amazing game. One of the best I’ve played, albeit a little short. Great character development. One isn’t Tomb Raider from the get-go. Instead one gets to embark on Lara’s journey to become Tomb Raider. Love it! Fantastic graphics too.

You’ll have until September 23rd to take advantage of this huge deal on PSN. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

EB Games Canada: PS Vita WiFi For Only $170 (Save $30)

EB Games Canada: PS Vita WiFi For Only $170 (Save $30)

Get the newest handheld to go with your brand new PS4, or your PS3, or anything else for only $170 at EB Games!

In another life I covered the PS Vita launch. It was awesome. The touch screen and the back-touchpad make for some great ancillary game mechanics (like the SixAxis controller) without being too intrusive like some others (I’m looking at you, Kinect and Wiimote). The connectivity, for those who are interested in that sort of stuff, is awesome. To top it all off, it has an absolutely gorgeous OLED screen.

If you have a PS3 or, better yet, a PS4, this is a great companion device. Remote play is awesome and I love the idea of taking some classic games, for instance, like FFVIII with you on your handheld. It’s kind of crappy playing a two or three year old game on your 70″ LED TV, but on a handheld, it doesn’t feel so bad.

This is a great price, too. You don’t often see consoles come on sale because they are super low margin items or, in some cases, are loss leaders. Getting the PS Vita for $169.99 is great considering it was $199.99. You’re saving $30! This could be a stock purge sale to get the original version gone before the PS Vita Slim comes here, which I’m assuming will happen some time soon. Normally I’m all up on a slim version of a console, but I guess the PS Vita Slim doesn’t have the amazing OLED screen, so I might pass.

Shipping is around $6 for most people.
