Playstation Store Flash Sale: Up To 91% off Select Games, Titles From Only $1.40! (EXPIRED)

Playstation Store Flash Sale: Up To 91% off Select Games, Titles From Only $1.40! (EXPIRED)

Yo gamers! Have you got a PlayStation 3, a PlayStation 4, or a PlayStation Vita? If you do, then you will want to check out this flash sale from the PlayStation store, which they are having this weekend. For a couple of days only, you can save up to 91% on a range of gaming titles. There are also 91 titles to choose from!

When I sorted the games by price low-to-high, it shows me that game pricing starts at only $1.40 for the likes of this game – Flower for the PS3/PS4/Vita (80% discount). This little game actually looks really beautiful – it lets you take control of the wind and explore various environments. It looks like the kind of game I could chill out to, for a couple of hours on the weekend (after the kids were in bed, of course).

There are 90 other games on sale, all with varying prices and popularity. One of my all-time favourite gaming franchises is on sale too – you can pick up Borderlands 2 at a 76% discount – grab it now for only $4.80. A quick google of a price comparison shows me that this game is $20+ at most other online stores in Canada, for a hard copy of the title. $4.80 is a truly excellent price to grab the digital download of this game.

Here are a few other popular titles that you might be interested in getting:

These prices are so low that it’s a “buy now, think later,” type of sale. Are you buying a few?

Xbox One Just Dance 2015 – Only $15 @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on April 13, 2015 at 1:30 PM

Xbox One Just Dance 2015   Only $15 @ Amazon.ca

Well, Amazon Canada did it. They saw another company give a good deal on Just Dance 2015 for the Xbox One and they decided to blow the deal out of the water in their own special way. Just Dance 2015 for the Xbox One is now on sale from $49.99 down to $14.99. However, you will only receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Seriously, this blows all the previous deals we have found out of the water by $10. Oddly enough, only the Xbox One version is discounted whereas other versions cost over double this price. I also price compared the Xbox One version against other retailers to see if this is a trend. Here is what I found:

  • $24.99 @ Microsoft Canada
  • $49.99 @ Shop.ca
  • $49.99 @ Staples Canada
  • $49.99 @ Toys R Us Canada
  • $49.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $49.99 @ The Source Canada

Pretty much, everyone still has the game for full price except for Microsoft. I have no idea why, but Amazon just came along and said, “we can go lower” – totally blowing Microsoft’s deal out of the water. Hey, it happens!

Since it has happened, you need to buy this. If you purchased the Microsoft version, then I suggest trying to get a price adjustment or just returning your copy for a refund and purchasing this one instead.

While I like the idea of this game, I have never been fond of games that require me to spend an extra $100 or so on hardware just to play them. I assumed I would need to use the Kinect, but there is no additional hardware required to play Just Dance 2015. Rather, the game track movements and scores using your smart phone. You just need to download the Just Dance 2015 motion controller app. This app will work on iPhones with iOS 6+ and on Android 4+ phones as well.

With this version, online multi-player is back. Dance with the friends you made on your last vacation or relatives living overseas. Dancing is a great way to strengthen bonds and promote community! Kids especially love dancing and they can show off their moves in Just Dance 2015. I think it would be fun for kids and their cousins, who may live in a different part of Canada, to be able to dance together over this game. It sounds cool!

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Downloadable Titanfall Season Pass FREE @ Origin.com

Posted by on April 10, 2015 at 7:00 PM

Downloadable Titanfall Season Pass FREE @ Origin.com

Not too long ago, I posted about the free Titanfall Season Pass being given out to Xbox One and Xbox 360 users. Origin.com has jumped on board. They are giving away the Titanfall Season Pass free to PC gamers.

I assume this has about the same value – $25 – as the Xbox versions did. The season pass combined three previously individual DLCs into one pack. Each of the DLCs came with three new maps so the Titanfall Season Pass has nine new maps in total:

  • Expedition: War Games, Swampland, and Runoff
  • Frontier’s Edge: Dig Site, Export, and Haven
  • IMG Rising: Backwater, Zone 18, and Sandtrap

Now, you can actually get the Titanfall Season Pass even if you do not have the base game. Sure, you need the base game to play with the maps – but you can buy this pass and then wait for the game to go on sale for a price you are actually willing to pay. Then, when you get the game, you will also have all this sweet bonus content.

I would wait for one of Origin’s legendary game sales before parting with my money. I am not a big fan of this type of game, but we all know games drop in price the longer they are out. Pick up the downloadable content now and see just how cheap you can score the game for later. Who knows, maybe it will be a freebie one day!

A mighty thanks goes out to Mooser Jeff who mentioned on the Xbox thread that this freebie was available for the PC as well.

All of this is probably because Titanfall 2 was just announced recently. The company wants to re-garner interest in the title to build up anticipation for the next instalment. If you have played this game, then drop me a line and share your thoughts! I am always eager to learn about new games from our Moosers.

Best Buy Canada: 2 for $50 on Select Xbox One Games

Posted by on April 7, 2015 at 9:23 PM

Best Buy Canada: 2 for $50 on Select Xbox One Games

Best Buy Canada is offering two select Xbox One games for just $50. These games regularly retail for $39.99 each – so you are saving around $30 with this deal. As you are buying two games for $50, your order will also qualify for free shipping.

Select game titles include:

  • Ryse: Son of Rome (Xbox One)
  • Forza Motorsport 5 Game Of The Year (Xbox One)
  • Sunset Overdrive (Xbox One)
  • Forza 5 (Xbox One)
  • Dead Rising 3 (Xbox One)

While this looks like a good deal – I did some careful price comparing with Walmart and with Amazon Canada to see what they charger per game.

Walmart Canada:

  • Ryse: Son of Rome (Xbox One) - $39.96
  • Forza Motorsport 5 Game Of The Year (Xbox One) - $39.96
  • Sunset Overdrive (Xbox One) – $64.96
  • Forza 5 (Xbox One) – not stocked
  • Dead Rising 3 (Xbox One) – $39.96 (OOS)

Amazon Canada:

  • Ryse: Son of Rome (Xbox One) - $34.89
  • Forza Motorsport 5 Game Of The Year (Xbox One) - $39.99
  • Sunset Overdrive (Xbox One) – $39.99
  • Forza 5 (Xbox One) – $39.99
  • Dead Rising 3 (Xbox One) – $28.99

With this promotion from Best Buy, each game comes down to $25, which certainly bests any of the prices at Walmart and Amazon right now. Three previously played versions are also included in the offer. However, I would only select them at last resort – if the regular version were sold out – as they are certainly worth less money.

I know zip about these games; therefore, I suggest reading some comments on Best Buy. I checked out the reviews on Sunset Overdrive and found everyone (except one guy) really loved the game. Most gamers were saying the person who gave the game one star obviously had not played the game themselves. For the three games that have ratings; Sunset Overdrive has a 4/5 star rating, Forza 5 has a 5/5 star rating, and Dead Rising 3 Also has a 5/5 star rating.

With the recent release of Furious 7, I really have the itch to play another racing game. Boxing and racing games used to be my standby entertainment when I was at the movie theatre too early. I really enjoyed the car racing games as well as the motorcycle racing games. I would pick up Forza Motorsport 5 – game of the Year edition for sure!

I have no idea when this promotion ends so please purchase sooner rather than risk missing out.

PlayStation Store: Six Free Games for the PS4, PS3, & PS Vita with PS Plus

Posted by on April 7, 2015 at 8:49 PM

PlayStation Store: Six Free Games for the PS4, PS3, & PS Vita with PS Plus

Do you like free? I like free! This month, PlayStation store is offering free games for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and the PS Vita! We are not talking one lone game here… there are six free games to choose from in the PlayStation store when you have a PS Plus membership. Why choose at all, you might as well get all of them when they are free!

Let us lay the games out per console. This deal gives you three free games for the PS4; this is a great deal as the PS4 console is still fairly new. Tower of Guns, Never Alone, and Aaru’s Awakening are all free for the PS4 this month. These games are worth $14.99 each, so pick up all four and save $44.97.

Like the PS4, owners of a PS3 qualify for three free games. Pick up Dishonored, Aaru’s Awakening, and Tower of Guns for free. Dishonoured is worth $19.99, Aaru’s Awakening is worth $14.99, and Tower of Guns is worth $14.99. Together, you receive $49.97 worth in free games.

The PS Vita offers a different set of games – but this time there are only two freebies. Killzone Mercenary retails for $35.99 and MonsterBag retails for $9.99. Together, you save $45.98.

These free games are all available for individuals who have a PS Plus membership. Three months of a PS Plus membership costs $17.99 US and a full 12 months costs $49.99 US. This may seem like a fair bit of change to throw at the Sony; however, the free game benefits far outweigh the money you pay. Just this month alone you would receive between $45 – $50 CDN worth of games. If you consider that value of freebies each month for the length of your membership – the value really adds up.

Of course, it is best if they are games you want to play. Dishonoured and Killzone Mercenary are probably the favourites of this month’s freebie list. They also tend to be the more expensive games. One happy PS Plus member commented on the Sony website:

Never Alone, nice. Never heard of Aaru’s Awakening. Seems interesting. Might give it a shot. Glad to see Dishonored being offered. It’s a great game.

Another member said:

Will absolutely be getting killzone mercenary for my vita. Now just need to find time to play it. Lol

I think that is why I have never bought a PS Plus membership – when would I find the time to play all these fantastic games?

EB Games Trade In Deals – Up to $70 in Credit

Posted by on April 6, 2015 at 6:10 PM

EB Games Trade In Deals   Up to $70 in Credit

EB Games has three special trade-in deals for PS4, XB1, XB360, PS3, PSV, WiiU, and 3DS games. All these deals will make your games worth more money towards other games or in credit.

There are three offers on right now. First of all, the trade more get more offer is one of EB Games’ best deals. With this offer, the more games you trade in the more bonus credit you will receive. Here are the three tiers:

  • Trade in 3 games, Get 10$ extra in-store credit
  • Trade in 5 games, Get 20$ extra in-store credit
  • Trade in 7 or more games, Get 30$ extra in-store credit

Each of these games has to have a trade in value of $3 or more. Just throwing this out there, but if you trade in seven games worth $3 each, usually you would get $21 credit. With this promo, you will receive $51 instead. This is really the best

Now, if you are trading in games with individual trade credit of $10 or more, then you may wish to use the following promotion. Trade in 3 games worth $10 or more to receive $70 credit towards the following game titles:

  • Bloodborne
  • Mortal Kombat X PS4/XB1
  • Project Cars

Above, I have linked to the specific games eligible for this promotion. It is a pretty extensive and varies by title and console.

Now, there is a third offer and this cannot be combined with any other offer. Receive an extra 30% in-store trade credit when you trade in your games towards the pre-order or purchase of the following titles:

  • Dark Souls 2 Scholar of the First Sin
  • Xenoblade Chronicles 3DS
  • MLB 15: The Show
  • Project Cars
  • Mortal Kombat X PS4/XB1
  • Bloodborne

As you can imagine, this is an in store only deal. With spring here, now is a great time to clear out your old games and make room for new titles. In fact, I have a few games sitting around that I never play. Unless it is a new title, it is pretty hard to resell games for any decent amount of money so this trade in offer is pretty good. I can reinvest that money into one game I want and really offset or eliminate my cost.

These bundles offer a different fully playable characters by the likes of either Nightwing, or Catwoman that come with their own set of unique moves and weapons. Paying full price for these isn’t particularly worth it but considering they’re between $2.80 and $4 for each right now, then it’s definitely better to get them now.

Another fighter game that you can currently get on sale is Mortal Kombat vs. DC  Universe. Originally priced at $19.99, it’s now on sale for just $8 and looks super fun to play. If you have played it before, then keep in mind that online matchmaking is no longer a feature of this game.

For those of you with kids, LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes could be a good one to pick up as well, especially since it’s down to just $8 (reg. $19.99). There is also currently a full game free trial available of this one. So you could give it a whirl before buying it but just make sure to get it before the sale ends to get it at the discounted price.

(PS4) 59% Off Destiny @ Amazon.ca (Or 50% Off For Other Consoles)

Posted by on March 29, 2015 at 8:15 PM

(PS4) 59% Off Destiny @ Amazon.ca (Or 50% Off For Other Consoles)

Quick! If you have been wanting to play Destiny, then here’s an absolutely fantastic deal from Amazon. Right now, Destiny for PS4 is 59% off and can be yours for just $28.99 (expired). If you have a PS3, Xbox 360 or Xbox One, then you can pick it up for 50% off, at $34.99. Everywhere else, this game is priced at $59.99, though Amazon has an original list price of 69.99.

First, I must warn you. In writing about this deal, this game kept changing in price. I initially saw it for $28.99, then after refreshing the page, it went up to $34.99 and when I refreshed again, it went back down to $28.99. Even a $34.99 price tag is worth paying, especially since like I already mentioned, this game is being sold at full price everywhere else, but if this happens to you, then I suggest refreshing the page or viewing it in a different browser. Deleting cookies could potentially help as well.

Once you land on Amazon.ca, you can also try copy/pasting the URL into a new tab or browser as that seemed to solve the price discrepancy for me as well.

There aren’t very many copies left either, so don’t wait as it’s sure to go back up in price very shortly!

Destiny is essentially a first-person shooter game that verges on being an MMORPG as it’s massively-multippayer and features a shared world concept.

A1cross the board, this game has stellar reviews, like this one from Best Buy:

Best game of the year, but I shouldn’t be shocked it was made by Bungie, the best gaming franchise EVER.

Even at Amazon.ca, this game has a total of 3.6/5 stars.

According to numerous other reviewers, this game is highly addicting but do beware of the fact that there is some grinding involved. Okay, according to the countless reviews, there is quite a lot of grinding involved. Many have compared it to World of Warcraft in that regard, so only get this game if you have the time and patience to invest into it!

With regards to shipping, it’s free if you get it on any of the other consoles but for PS4, it’s $4.99 as it ships from Mythical Video Games, an independent retailer.

PlayStation Store Coupon: 10% Off Games & More

Posted by on March 28, 2015 at 9:00 AM

PlayStation Store Coupon: 10% Off Games & More

Receive 10% off PS3, PS4, and more games at the Sony PlayStation Store this weekend. PlayStation has only had one of these coupons before, in recent memory, so they are fairly rare!

Click here to shop the PlayStation Store online now

  • Coupon Code: LQ8ERDQH3A
  • Discount: 10% off
  • Expiry: 30th March 2015 @ noon PST

This coupon can be used on all games including sale titles but excluding pre-orders. We are in Week 4 of the Spring Fever event at PSN. Pick up deals on the God of War franchise, Wrestlemania and more.

I mentioned the free DLC for God of War: Ascension just a few days ago. In that post, I suggested buying the entire God of War: Ascension Ultimate Edition that was $39.99 and is now on sale for $12. After this coupon code, you can actually get this mega pack with the game and the full DLC bundle for just $10.80. All other titles are 40% off their original price.

There are other good deals on as well. I invaded the 50% off games section on the PlayStation Network. While there are a lot of DLCs and game content in the sale, you can find some stand-alone titles. Zen Pinball 2: South Park Pinball (PS4) is on sale for from $4.99 down to $2.49. After coupon code, pay just $2.24 for the title. I could literally waste hours playing pinball. I started playing pinball on an old computer I had that had the game built in (as well as the usual Solitaire, Hearts, and more). I really enjoyed playing the game and have since tried my hands at a real pinball machine.

WWE 2K15 is also on sale for 50% off. Originally $59.99, the game has been discounted to $29.99. After coupon code, pay only $26.99 for this title. I could hardly believe that at this price the game was 50% off. However, I checked out the game on Xbox (same game, different platform) where it retails for $69.99. Much of the Wrestlemania franchise is on sale so check out all the games you can score here.

I am not familiar with many of these titles and I rarely buy games on the Sony PlayStation Network. That is where you come in dear Moosers! Drop us a line with your game suggestions. With an extra 10% off everything, including sale titles, now is a good time to expand your game collection.

I believe all prices are in USD. What titles are you going to buy?

Amazon Canada: Puppeteer PS3 Game Was $35 | Now $10 (FS @ $25)

Posted by on March 26, 2015 at 2:40 PM

Amazon Canada: Puppeteer PS3 Game Was $35 | Now $10 (FS @ $25)

Amazon Canada just dropped the price on this beautifully animated Puppeteer game for the Playstation 3. The game was $35.38, but is now on sale for just $9.99.

This game is for everyone who likes dark fairy-tales and puppets. PSN gives a quick rundown on the game’s theme:

Set in a magical puppeteer’s theatre, this title will introduce you to a strange and fantastic world, where the environment is constantly changing. Players will enjoy a rich, dark fairytale where surprises lurk around every corner.

You play a boy – Kutaro – who was stolen away to a magical land and then turned into a puppet. he displeased the tyrant of the land so much that the tyrant ate the body’s head and threw away his body. Now, with the help of a magical pair of scissors, you can help the headless Kutaro along on his adventures to find his head.

The game has some really interesting features including swappable heads! You can change your head anytime you want within the game. If you lose your head, then you lose a life. This game is pretty unique in platforming, stages, and theatrical storytelling. You use a pair of scissors to cut, chop, and crop your way through the adventures. The sets are incredibly rich, as befitting a theatre and the colours are rich.

There are only two ratings on Amazon.ca – and they are polar opposites. However, the PSN has far more ratings for the game. With 2892 ratings, the game rates a perfect 5/5 stars. Also, I price compared against the PlayStation Store. There, the game costs $39.99 just to download. I could not find this game anywhere else in Canada. When i found the game in the USA, it retailed for more than $10, I can assure you!

I think this game is beautiful just to look at and I am sure it will be visually gorgeous to play as well. With a perfect 5/5 star rating on PSN, this game is probably a hidden gem just waiting to be found and loved. Puppeteer is unique among games today and I hope it finds a home on your game shelf. At this price, it is certainly worth trying.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more. Shipping costs around $5 for orders under the minimum.

Playstation Store: God of War Ascension Ultimate DLC Bundle PS3 FREE ($20 Value)

Posted by on March 24, 2015 at 4:45 PM

Playstation Store: God of War Ascension Ultimate DLC Bundle PS3 FREE ($20 Value)

The Playstation Store has a huge sale on the God of War franchise. Along with this up to 70% off sale, the PSN is giving away the God of War: Ascension Ultimate DLC Bundle for free. This DLC bundle usually retails for $19.99.

This bundle is for the PS3 version of God of War: Ascension. This bundle adds all add-on DLCs for God of War: Ascension multiplayer mode. The DLC pack also includes 14 sets of armour, 27 weapons, nine capes, and four tattoos. Now, you want to have the original game before you go buying any DLC pack for free as there is a bonus 48-hour 2X XP Boost. This experience boost helps you level up your warrior and get new equipment faster.

Now, say you do not own God of War: Ascension. Well sister, we can change that in a second. The Playstation network also has God of War: Ascension Ultimate Edition, for the PS3, on sale from $39.99 down to $12. If you buy this bundle, there is no need to download the above DLC Bundle. The ultimate edition already includes the entire DLC bundle. It is not worth buying the game as a stand-alone without the DLC Bundle as the game currently retails for $19.99 separately. Either you get just the DLC pack for free or you pick up the ultimate edition for $12. Those are your best deals.

I could not fairly price compare this deal, but I did find the regular God of War: Ascension game on Amazon Canada for $13.99. That is without the DLC Bundle. As the DLC bundle is valued at $20, I think this is a great offer. Of course, it is an amazing offer if you have the game but never bothered to pay extra for any DLCs. You can just download that content for free.

All other titles are on sale for 40% off their original price. Pick up God of War titles for the PS Vista, PSP, and PS3 during this sale.

Amazon Canada: LEGO Movie Video Game Was $20 | Now $15 + Other LEGO Games On Sale

Posted by on March 24, 2015 at 11:57 AM

Amazon Canada: LEGO Movie Video Game Was $20 | Now $15 + Other LEGO Games On Sale

Now that March Break is over and parents are sighing, you might be thinking that your kid doesn’t have enough to do. How about play more video games? While I don’t generally push my kids toward video games, I do get them when they are a good deal. All three of my kids love the LEGO movie, so I had to pick up this deal right now. Amazon has various deals on LEGO videogames, but this one was the one I was most interested in.

They have the LEGO movie video game for:

The regular price for those systems was $19.99 with the sale price now $14.99. When I looked around, I found this game on the varying systems priced as high as $34.95 at Chapters and as low as $19.83 at Walmart. No store beat Amazon’s price.

As I said in my title, the LEGO movie title isn’t the only LEGO game on sale. If you like LEGO Marvel super heroes, this game is also on sale with a regular price of $19.99 and is now on sale as low as $14.51, depending on what system you have. Again, the lowest price I found this game elsewhere was Walmart at a price of $19.83.

If LEGO The Hobbit is up your alley, this one is also on sale as low as $15.99, with a regular price of $19.99.

LEGO Harry Potter and LEGO Lord of the Rings are also on sale, although the prices for these games are not as low as the above listed games.

You’ll have to get your total up to $25 to get free shipping, but get yourself two games and you’re there. I like LEGO games because I find them good for a wide range of ages. My boys are a few years apart, but they can all play these games and no one thinks they are too babyish, yet they also aren’t violent, as characters break, rather than die. You can check out all of the reviews of each game, of which there really aren’t any negative ones.

PS4, PS3 & PS Vita Games Under $1 @ Sony PlayStation Network Flash Sale (EXPIRED)

PS4, PS3 & PS Vita Games Under $1 @ Sony PlayStation Network Flash Sale (EXPIRED)

Got nothing to do this weekend? Then bust out your PlayStation console and head on over to the PlayStation Network, where you can get plenty of games for under $1… or slightly over.

Okay so the image above isn’t exactly for the faint of heart and I’m kind of cheating in mentioning it but then again, the Sony PlayStation Network cheated as well.

Although, speaking of faint of heart, if you like Cards Against Humanity, did you know that you can now play it online with Cards Against Originality? Make sure to read the blog post I wrote on it a couple of days ago.

There are plenty of deals under $1 to take advantage of but the game in the image above, which is Dead Nation Apocalypse Edition is on sale for $1.65 (reg. $14.99). Forgive me for the $0.65 difference! PS4, PS3 & PS Vita Games Under $1 @ Sony PlayStation Network Flash Sale (EXPIRED)

I’m mentioning it because it’s actually a pretty amazing deal for a game that was originally priced at nearly $15 and is now a whopping 89% off. Plus, any game that is that cheap for the PS4 is definitely pretty awesome, especially considering the fact that Dead Nation has over 38,000 reviews with a total 4/5 stars.

It’s your typical zombie game with the main difference being that the two main characters are, for some unknown reason, immune to the zombie disease despite getting bit and scratched repeatedly. Since it’s a PS4 game, you can expect the gameplay to being stunning, especially as evidenced by this review from PS4 Experts:

Dead Nation: Apocalypse edition is the premier version of Housemarque’s solid arcade shooter. For some, the gameplay may be addictive and unforgettable, while others may find it repetitive and bland. I myself found it to be a mixture of the two and enjoyed my time with it. That being said, the upgraded graphics and included DLC do provide a lot of extra gameplay to delve into. I do also enjoy the support for local co-op.

Games that you can truly get for under $1 include but are not limited to:

  • PS3 – 94% off Tokyo Jungle: reg. $14.99/ now $0.90
  • PS4 – 93% off Surgeon Simulator: reg. $12.99/ now $0.91
  • PS4 – 81% off Home – A Unique Horror Adventure: reg. $4.99/ now $0.95
  • PS3 – 81% off Bejeweled 3: reg. $4.99/ now $0.95
  • PSP/ PS Vita – 81% off Beta Bloc: reg. $4.99/ now $0.95
  • PS3/PSP/PS Vita – 84% off Extreme Pinball: reg. $5.99/ now $0.96
  • PS3 – 63% off Who Wants To Be A Movie Millionaire: reg. $2.99/ now $0.99

Have fun!

Steam Powered: 75% Off Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier – Only $4.99

Steam Powered: 75% Off Tom Clancys Ghost Recon Future Soldier   Only $4.99

Steam Powered has a crazy deal on Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier for the PC. Originally $19.99, the game is now only $4.99. At 75% off, you will not find a better price for this game on any console.

Price comparing is not as hard as I thought it would be. Walmart Canada has the PC version (digital code) for $19.97. I also price compared across a few platforms to give you an idea of what is out there. The Sony Playstation Store sells the PS3 version for $19.99 (digital version). Tiger Direct sells the PS3 version for $22.47 plus shipping. EB Games has both the Xbox and PS3 versions refurbished for $9.95 plus shipping.

The most competitive deal right now is from good ol’ Amazon Canada. The PC version is currently $9.99 + $4.99 shipping (from marketplace seller). The PS3 version is on sale from $19.99 down to $7.91. This is the best deal I saw on the PS3 version, so pick it up if you have that console!

For the PC, this is the best deal you are going to find. The tag-line “only the dead fight fair” is pretty appropriate for this war game. Join a special team of soldiers geared up with the latest in technological combat gear. The odds are not in your favour so you had better work your butt off to even them out a little. The reviews for this couple year old game are positive. One reviewer says:

Tactical 3rd person shooters have always interested me, and not a single Ghost Recon game has disappointed me. I always walked away satisfied and craving for more fun as a future soldier.

There are but a few complaints. One person said that the multi-player section is pretty dead with few to no players available. The only other ‘major complaint’ concerns length. Many reviewers wished the game were a little longer. This is a plus as well – you only want games you enjoy to last. If you do not like the game, you will think it cannot end soon enough.

Many of the original reviews for the game were quite negative due to bugs that Ubisoft was a little late on fixing. Make sure you check out the more recent reviews for an accurate assessment of the game.
