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)

Posted by on March 21, 2015 at 2:00 PM

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

Posted by on March 15, 2015 at 4:44 PM

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.

Amazon.ca: Call of Duty Ghosts (XBox 360) Was $30 | Now $5 *HOT*

Posted by on March 10, 2015 at 12:19 PM

Amazon.ca: Call of Duty Ghosts (XBox 360) Was $30 | Now $5 *HOT*

A few days ago, Call of Duty: Ghosts for the PS3 went on sale for $4.99 and sold out very quickly! Today, Amazon Canada dropped their price on the xBox 360 version. Call of Duty: Ghosts (xBox 360) is now on sale from $29.99 down to $4.99. Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more at Amazon or pay around $5 for just this game to be shipped out.

A quick price comparison shows that this game is well below any other retailer’s price. Here is what other Canadian retailers are selling the xBox 360 version for:

  • $29.99 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $29.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $29.99 @ Toys R Us Canada
  • $49.99 @ Chapters Indigo Canada

Used copies retail for $24.99 at Best Buy and Future Shop. Essentially, you are getting a new copy for $20 cheaper than a used copy. Really, you cannot do better than that.

This game is really not that old. Released in November 2013, this first-person shooter video game is part of the Call of Duty line of games. I checked out the game on metacritic, where it has a 73/100 rating via critics. I did find out some interesting info on player development, which I thought I would share:

In Call of Duty: Ghosts you don’t just create a class, you create a soldier. Choose the head, body type, head-gear and equipment, and you can even create a female soldier for the first time. With over 20,000 possible combinations, you can create the soldier you’ve always wanted. And each soldier you create will also have his or her own load outs

I find it fascinating that you can create female soldiers in this game as female characters are often ignored in first-person shooter games like this. I really like this development, as I would love to create a kick-ass female soldier. I like males well enough, but creating a character within a game is a way of inserting yourself into the game in avatar form. I like to game, but i do not need a sex change!

If you want to see how this game plays on the xBox 360, there are plenty of YouTube videos to give you a walk through. I picked out this one, as it is nice and short.

75% off Guild Wars 2 (PC) This Weekend: Now Only $10 to $15 (US) *BUMP* (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 6, 2015 at 3:20 PM

75% off Guild Wars 2 (PC) This Weekend: Now Only $10 to $15 (US) *BUMP* (EXPIRED)

*BUMP. This deal is back on!* Here’s a little deal for the PC gamers! This weekend, you can buy Guild Wars 2 for a 75% discount on the original price! There are two editions on offer; the Digital Heroic Edition was $39.99 and it’s now only $10 and the Digital Deluxe Edition was $59.99 and it’s now only $15.

The above prices are in US dollars, so with the exchange rate, you’re paying slightly more in CA.

When Margarita last wrote a deal about Guild Wars 2, it was here, back in April 2014 when the game was on offer at 50% off, so 75% is obviously a sweeter deal. For the price you pay above, you’re getting the digital edition of the full game, and there are a few extras too, depending on which pack you choose. E.g. You get a Chalice of Glory in the Digital Deluxe Edition… obviously a few things to help you out when you are actually in and playing the MMO.

Here are some words from my partner – he used to be a big player of the first Guild Wars game, but he hasn’t got any experience of this second edition.

Geez, it’s been going a long time – it’s over two years since this game came out. There’s a new expansion pack coming (Heart of Thorns), it was actually announced yesterday. So this deal could allow you to get in and run through the initial game which should be bug free, by now! It’s very pretty… I want it.

I promptly said nope, he’s not getting it! There are so many unplayed games sitting on his Steam account, that he’s purchased when they were on special offer but hasn’t yet played. I’ve vetoed the purchase of Guild Wars 2!

I remember in the olden days, there was a World of Warcraft vs Guild Wars argument. World of Warcraft is by far the most popular nowadays, but Guild Wars still has a pretty big worldwide following.

Have you ever heard of the web TV series, The Guild? It’s a brilliant little show which came out a few years ago, when MMOs were getting extremely popular. Here’s the first episode:

There are now six seasons available to view, and it’s a great watch. If you’ve ever played any type of MMO, then the references in it will tickle your funny bone. But even if you’re not a player, you should still find the show pretty funny.

Free Syndicate Game @ Origin.com ($4.99 Value)

Posted by on March 4, 2015 at 3:00 PM

Free Syndicate Game @ Origin.com ($4.99 Value)

Syndicate is the new on the house game of the month. Regularly priced at $4.99, this old but good game is now FREE to download for the month of March.

As with all on the house deals at Origin.com, this is an older game – released in 1993. The game is available for PC only, and once you claim this deal, the game is free for you to keep. This is not a demo and this is not a trial. The game is yours permanently.

I assume that nostalgia will fuel most people who claim this game. If you played Syndicate back in the day, I am sure you are going to have a blast running through it again. Sure, graphics has come a long way since 1993, but it is sometimes fun to go back and play the games of our childhood. Here is a brief description of the game if you are not familiar:

You are an ambitious marketing director in the Syndicate, hand-picked to lead a team of cyborg mercenaries. You work in the problem-solving department and you are damn good at “taking care” of problems. Some might say that violence is not the answer but you know better. There here are hardly any problems that you can’t solve with a well-placed bullet.

Except for the cyborgs, that sounds pretty much like a lot of business transactions in large multinational companies these days. They just ‘wipe out’ the competition. Oops!

I looked up the game on GOG for some reviews. This old game has an overall rating of 4.5/5 stars and the reviews blather on about how awesome this game was for the day and how going back to play the game has been fantastic. While you see the errors in the game now, it is still an immersive experience that is fun and rewarding. One reviewer said:

Absolutely epic cyberpunk tactical action. The sprite graphics are pretty for what they are and surprisingly satisfactory for being from 1993. The sound is fantastic. The Uzi and minigun droning is disturbingly pleasing, and the music suspenseful.

There is more to this review, you can check it and other reviews out on GOG where the game (plus expansion) retail for $5.99.

PlayStation Network LEGO Games Sale: Up To 75% Off PS4 & PS3 LEGO Games (+ Up To EXTRA 15% Discount For PS Plus Members)

Posted by on March 4, 2015 at 2:00 PM

PlayStation Network LEGO Games Sale: Up To 75% Off PS4 & PS3 LEGO Games (+ Up To EXTRA 15% Discount For PS Plus Members)

The PlayStation Network has currently discounted a total of 20 LEGO games as part of their LEGO Games Sale and there are discounts of up to 75% to be had!

Here’s a sample of some of the game that you can get on sale:

PlayStation Network LEGO Games Sale: Up To 75% Off PS4 & PS3 LEGO Games (+ Up To EXTRA 15% Discount For PS Plus Members)

As you can see, the highest discount is the 75% one on LEGO Harry Potter and LEGO Lord of the Rings for PS3. Both games are down to just $5, from a regular price tag of $19.99. If you’re a fan of any of these franchises, then it’s definitely worth picking up both as you will be into for hours and hours of fun. I haven’t played them myself yet, but I have been told that both games are highly entertaining.

I have to admit that the only LEGO PlayStation game that I have played is actually the Marvel Super Heroes one. At the time, I paid far more than what it’s on sale for and I kind of wish I would have waited for this sale, but oh well! For either PS3 or PS4, you can get it for just $8 instead of $19.99. What I love about this game is that you can choose to play it alone or with one another player. The only downside is that despite boasting an impressive number of characters that you get to try out as you advance through the levels, only a maximum amount of two players can play together. It would be so much cooler if more than four people could play together, but perhaps this is a feature that will be implemented in the near future — fingers crossed!

If you’re a PS Plus member, then you can also save up to an extra 15% on some of these games, most notably the LEGO Marvel Superheroes one.

Perhaps it’s a coincidence, but lately we have been seen quite a number of LEGO deals. Just recently, Avigayil unerathed a cool freebie are LEGO stores countrywide for a free robot with purchase of the monthly mini model build. The 20% discount on select LEGO games at Chapters Indigo that Brooke wrote about last weekend is also still in full swing, so don’t miss it as it’s set to expire on March 8th. Last but not least, don’t forget about LEGO’s free part replacement program in case you lose any pieces from the sets.

(Wii U) Kirby & the Rainbow Curse Was $45 Now Only $35 With Coupon & Free Shipping @ Toys R Us Canada!

Anyone on Bargainmoose own a Wii U, the newest generation of Wii console? If you do, and you’re on the lookout for some games, there’s a sweet price on a video game at Toys R Us online if you combine it with one of their coupon codes. On the TRU site just now, the video game Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is priced at $44.99. Use the coupon code CINEPLEXHOLIDAY to score $10 off $40, bringing this item down to only $34.99.

As for free shipping, this is one of the items that currently qualify for the free shipping on $25 promotion, which is happening at Toys R Us Canada. Some people are a bit confused as to the way this shipping promo works. But in brief, Toys R Us gives you a shipping credit of up to $20. When I did this for a test order to Ontario, the shipping discount was $8.41, which is very sweet.

Game Reviews

I’ve never played this game myself so I cannot give you any personalised reviews or opinions about it. My old faithful friend Metacritic, gives this game a critic score of 75% and a user rating of 78%. The critics and the regular users are quite close in their opinions there. That’s a pretty high score for a video game on Metacritic. Click through and read all the personal experiences on there if you wish, before deciding to buy the game at Toys R Us.

Price Comparison

Doing a super-fast price comparison elsewhere shows me that the Toys R Us price for Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is the best of the bunch, online in Canada. This game is $45 @ Amazon, EB Games, Best Buy, Costco, Future Shop, Videogamesplus, all the usual suspects.

FutureShop Canada: MLB 14: The Show PS4 Was $30 | Now $10 (FS @ $25) *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Posted by on February 20, 2015 at 1:03 PM

FutureShop Canada: MLB 14: The Show PS4 Was $30 | Now $10 (FS @ $25) *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Future Shop Canada has a really hot deal on MLB 14: The Show for the PS4. Originally $29.99, the game is now on sale for $9.99.

I suggest buying this one QUICKLY as it has already sold out on the Best Buy Canada website. You also have the option of reserving and picking up in store, which will save you shipping charges.

Now, this is one heck of a deal. The same game for the PS4 is currently $34.52 on Amazon.ca. Even if you have to pay for shipping (around $5, depending on where you live), you will still save a ton off money off Amazon Canada’s price right now. EB Games sells MLB 14: The Show for $39.99 new and $29.99 recycled. On Walmart Canada, expect to pay $39.96. Compared to the price at Walmart, Future Shop has the game for 75% less money. The original price for this game at Future Shop is even less than everyone else is selling the game for right now.

There are several very lengthy reviews written about this game, so check out the reviews on Amazon and Future Shop for more details. This game averages 4.5/5 stars with 11 reviews at Future Shop. One reviewer said:

Great game! It is filled with tons of different gameplay options and a staggering amount of customization options. Graphics are breathtaking and all players and mascots really do look like their real-life counterparts.

If you have not figured it out yet, this is a baseball game. Grab your bat and your helmet for this awesome sports game. Immortalize yourself in baseball legend with this game. Enjoy enhanced game play, faster response time, better player creation mod, and a pre-draft showcase feature. There is even a funky little feature called “Road to the Show” that is sure to provide plenty of entertainment.

Even if you play the game and find you do not like it, right now you could trade it in at places at EB games or sell it at Kijiji or Craigslist for more than your purchase price.

Quantities are LIMITED!

Diablo 3 Ultimate Edition PS4 & Xbox One – Was $70 | Now $39 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on February 20, 2015 at 12:43 PM

Diablo 3 Ultimate Edition PS4 & Xbox One   Was $70 | Now $39 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Gamers! Amazon Canada has dropped the price substantially on Diablo 3 Ultimate Edition for the PS4 and the Xbox One. The price for the game on these new consoles is cheaper than it is for the PS3 and the Xbox 360. Originally $69.99, Diablo 3 Ultimate Evil Edition is now on sale for $39 with free shipping.

You can select either console edition through the link above. I price compared this PS4 and Xbox edition with other retails to find it substantially more expensive elsewhere:

  • $64.99 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $64.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $69.99 @ EB Games (new)
  • $59.99 @ EB Games (recycled)

You would also have to pay shipping at EB games if you bought from there. I checked Walmart Canada as well, but they only have the game for older consoles. Amazon Canada’s price is the best you can get right now – and it is hot!

There are two different versions – one is English only and the other is French only. May sure you buy the right version or you might end up with a game in a language you do not speak. Evidently the French version for the PS4 does have an English language software package that can be installed so the game plays in English. i do not know if the English version has a language pack you could install for French. This is rather silly in my mind – if movies can be bilingual, why can’t a game?

Over, this game is a killer purchase at this price. It also has garnered high reviews from gamers. One reviewer on the Xbox One edition said:

Addicting as hell, I spent the last 12 hours playing non-stop, forgot to eat, drink and call my girlfriend to tell her I loved her, I’m now single. You want a game that will make you forget you have a life? Buy this.

I feel sorry for his girlfriend.

What blows my mind is that such a popular title is currently on sale for 40% off its original price – for the two newest consoles. How on earth did that ever happen? Even the recycled version at EB games is not that cheap.

You will receive free shipping on this game as it costs over $25. This is a win-win situation my lovely Moosers! Pick up this game before it sells out.

(PS4) Knack Just $10 | Was $40 @ PSN Valentine’s Day Flash Sale (+ Up To 80% Off Other Games)

(PS4) Knack Just $10 | Was $40 @ PSN Valentines Day Flash Sale (+ Up To 80% Off Other Games)

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, the PlayStation Network has discounted a bunch of games as part of their Flash Sale and until Monday, Knack for PS4 is on sale for just $10 (reg. $39.99).

This is perhaps the lowest price that we have ever seen for Knack. It’s a game that was released at the same time as the PlayStation 4 and features amazing graphics that perfectly showcase the latest console’s capabilities. Reviews are somewhat mixed on this game but if you’re looking for something new to play, then its current price reduction is definitely worth taking advantage. Keep in mind that it’s only a digital copy that is good for one account. If you prefer having a hard copy of the game, then you can pick it up on sale for $20.48 at Amazon right now instead. It’s usually priced at $39.99 and in fact, both Future Shop and Best Buy have it at that price. Here’s what someone had to say about it on Amazon:

The thing I love about the game is the ability of the co op experience. In knack you can have another person join your game at anytime as your sidekick and then run around and bash things together. I think this game is geared toward young kids however having played video games myself since Atari I have to say I love this game.

Not interested in Knack? No worries, there are numerous other games on sale, including some of the PS3 and others for the PS Vita. Here’s an overview of just some of the top games that you can pick up on sale:

  • PS3 Dead of Alive 5: reg. $19.99/ now $4
  • PS4 Divekick: reg. $9.99/ now $4
  • PS4 Dynasty Warriors 8 – Xtreme Legends: reg. $59.99/ now $18
  • PS3 Street Fighter X Tekken: reg. $29.99/ now $7.50
  • PSP Def Jam Fight For New York: reg. $9.99/ now $2
  • PS3 Digimon All-Star Rumble: reg. $39.99/ now $16
  • PS Vita Mortal Kombat – Unchained: reg. $9.99/ now $2.50

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris for the PS4 has also been slashed in price. It’s down to just $8 (reg. $19.99) or $11.60 (reg. $28.99) with the season pass pack. The latter also include a season pass pack, thus explaining the slightly higher price. This game was released in December 2014 and has garnered a general consensus of 7/10 within the online gaming community with positive reviews like this one that was posted on Metacritic:

The best of Lara, whether played on your own, or shared with others.

A couple of movie rentals have also been reduced in price. Belle as well as Men, Women and Children are both down to $4.99, but there are also other movies like Rudderless, Snowpiercer, Sugar and In a World… to name a few.

Best Buy Canada: Trade-in 2 Select Games for $70 GC (In-Store)

Best Buy Canada: Trade in 2 Select Games for $70 GC (In Store)

Best Buy Canada has started their trade-in event yet again. As a special promotion, they are offering a $70 gift card when you trade in two select PS4, XBox One, or WiiU Games.

Games must include their original boxes. They will not accept duplicate titles regardless of which console they are for. There is a limit of one trade in promo (of two games) per customer.

The following titles are eligible for trade-in:

Xbox One & PS4

  • Assassin’s Creed Unity
  • Destiny
  • Dragon Age Requisition
  • Fifa 15
  • NBA 2K15
  • Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor
  • COD Advanced Warfare
  • Diablo III Ultimate Evil Ed ENG
  • WWE 2K15
  • NHL 15
  • GTA V
  • The Crew Ltd Edition
  • Dying Daylight

Other

  • PS4 Little Big Planet 3 Ltd Edition
  • Xbox One Forza Horizon 2
  • Xbox One Halo Master Chief Collection
  • Xbox One Sunset Overdrive Day One ED
  • Wii U Mario Kart 8
  • Wii U Super Smash Bros

While they are all pretty new games, this is an opportunity to trade them in for a good return on your original investment. Two games equal a $70 gift card, so you are getting $35 trade-in value per game. You can then use that credit to buy new games, or even buy other Previously Played titles.

Each previously played title is backed by a 30-day money back policy and are guaranteed to work. Your previously loved games will be sold to other eager gamers that just cannot afford to buy the game at full retail price.

I think this is an excellent incentive from Best Buy Canada and a very good trade-in value. These days, you are lucky to get $20 back for fairly new games from the trade-in stores. While it would make most sense just to sell the titles privately, some people just do not have the time to dedicate to privately selling.

This offer is available in store only and is only available for a couple more days. Then the games will go back down to their regular trade-in value (whatever that might be). I am a bit disappointed that PS3 titles are not included in this offer. I would LOVE to trade in a few PS3 titles for some store credit, but i guess they have had their day.

You can spend the gift card on anything Best Buy has to offer!
