Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Super Heroes Starter Pack (All Game Systems!) Was $60 | Now $20 (FS @ $25) @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Super Heroes Starter Pack (All Game Systems!) Was $60 | Now $20 (FS @ $25) @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

Best Buy Canada has the Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Super Heroes Starter on sale across all gaming systems. This starter pack was $60 but is now only $19.99, the lowest price we have seen this set yet!

The Disney Infinity set is so incredibly cool. I really like this new trend of buying figurines that unlock special powers and more characters across a variety of games. Right now, you can grab a Marvel starter pack at a fraction of the cost to add to your toy box universe. This is the 2.0 version, not the 3.0 version that is newer on the market, but this set is still full of many hours of game play. This set is also expandable with many additional characters available separately. Your set will include the following characters.

  • Thor
  • Ironman
  • Black Widow

You will also receive the following other items in your starter pack:

  • Infinity Marvel Super Heroes 2.0 Game
  • The Avengers play set piece
  • Infinity Compatible Base
  • Toy Box Game disc

This game is available for $74.96 across all game systems at Walmart.ca. Toys R Us Canada only sells this for Xbox 360 retailing at $74.99. EB Games Canada only has this available for PS4 at $74.99.

At Amazon.ca, each gaming system has a different price. Depending on your gaming system, you can save quite a bundle:

  • Nintendo Wii U- $19.99
  • PlayStation 4- $19.99
  • PlayStation 3 $49.99
  • Xbox 360- $69.95
  • Xbox One- $39.99

You can see that Amazon Canada has matched Best Buy Canada’s price on two select gaming systems, but not on all. Either way you are getting a stellar deal that is half of what we have seen it priced previously.

Over on Amazon Canada people who bought the game mention that this set is ideal for younger children. The happiest customers have children who are age 3-7, but they also mention repeatedly this is fun for the entire family. The reviews on Best Buy Canada are mixed, and all straight to the point.

New heroes and new worlds add to the original adventure and kids love it!

Shipping is free if you spend $25, and this game is close all on its own. If you order this game alone, then your shipping costs is $4.99 for a grand total of $24.98. You can add this small filler, the Gud Orange Petalooza Body Lotion which is a Burt’s Bees Brand lotion selling for $5.28. That brings your order to a total of $25.27 and your order will ship free. For twenty-nine cents, I would pick up the lotion or an alternative small filler that is as close to $5.01 as possible.

Originally selling for $59.99 US ($73.90 CDN), you can get it for just $45 US, which comes up to about $55.43 in Canadian.

Click here to get Grand Theft Auto V on PC @ GreenmanGaming.com now

  • Coupon Code: GRAB25-PERCNT-OFFNOW
  • Discount: 25% off
  • Expiry: 19th June 2015 @ 1pm EST

I had the opportunity of playing this game when it first came out on PS3 (and subsequently on the PS4) and I must tell you that it’s definitely worth playing! It’s very well made and the missions will keep you on your toes as you navigate through the vast cities. The story lines of the three characters, Michael, Trevor and Franklin, are also intriguing as the game makes you wonder how these characters, from very different backgrounds, will come together in the end.

Reviews for this game have been pretty spectacular across the board. Here’s one that gave it a 100 score on Greenman Gaming’s site:

GTA V is one of the first games of 2015, this is one of the best games to come out so far its graphics are fantastic and excellent gameplay recommend it 100% because it is a game for fun and it is not history, terror, etc, this game can be played with friends and making different kinds of missions I hope you buy and enjoy this wonderful game.

Everywhere else, the PC version of this page is $69.99 such as at Best Buy or EB Games. Amazon.ca has it for $69.95. Admittedly, these come in DVD form, which means that you would receive an actual CD but since these are quickly becoming obsolete, you might as well get the truly PC version with Greenman Gaming. Not only will you save money but you will also immediately receive your activation key via e-mail, which means that you can play right away as well instead of waiting for your game to arrive in the mail.

For more Greenman Gaming coupon codes, be sure to keep an eye on the Bargainmoose forum. The one above can actually be used on other games as well but keep in mind that it may not work on all. It’s worth a try though if there’s another game that you have been eyeing for a while.

Amazon.ca Promo Code: 20% to 30% off Pre-Order Video Games!

Posted by on June 14, 2015 at 8:00 AM

Amazon.ca Promo Code: 20% to 30% off Pre Order Video Games!

It’s not very often that Amazon.ca releases generic promo codes which can be used on a selection of items on their site. That’s why when I found this deal, I was quite excited to see it. There are two new promo codes which can be used for a discount if you are pre-ordering video games there. Pre-order two video games and get a 20% discount, or pre-order three or more games and get a 30% discount on your order!

Click here to use the Amazon.ca promo codes online now

  • Promo code: E3SAVE20
  • Discount: 20% off 2 pre-order video games
  • Promo code: E3SAVE30
  • Discount: 30% off 3 or more pre-order video games
  • Expires: 18th June 2015

There are a couple of terms and conditions which you might want to take note of:

  • You can only buy two copies of any one game.
  • Excludes: Disney Infinity, Limited, Gold or Collector’s editions, LEGO Dimensions, Skylanders, consoles, accessories.

What’s even sweeter about this deal is the Amazon pre-order price guarantee. It simply states:

Our Pre-order Price Guarantee covers one or more item(s) in this order. If the Amazon.ca price decreases between the time you place your order and the end of the day of the release date, you’ll receive the lowest price.

This means that if there’s a game you are interested in buying, you don’t have to worry about any price fluctuations on Amazon. If the video game drops in price on its release date, you will only pay the lower price for your purchase. And as most of these games are brand new, they’re all going to be over the $25 free shipping minimum threshold too.

Some people follow certain video games and are huge fans, and want to have the brand new edition on its release date to start playing right away. I’m not like that, but I’ve known a few gamers who are. There are a couple of popular series in here which people will be interested in. Some examples of the upcoming releases:

The release dates on these vary, with many not actually being released until quarter 4, just in time for Christmas. If you or someone in your family MUST have select titles on release day, this is the perfect time to buy.

Best Buy Canada: Playstation TV Bundle | Was $100 Now $50 **BUMP**

Posted by on June 12, 2015 at 7:42 AM

Best Buy Canada: Playstation TV Bundle | Was $100 Now $50 **BUMP**

**We are bumping this today as the price has gone down another $50! When Ivan wrote this in November, Best Buy had reduced the price from $140 to $100 and it is now reduced from $100 down to $50!**

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 $49.99! 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!

It’s currently being sold at retail locations like Toys R Us for $99.99. 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!

Nintendo Wii System (Refurb) only $49.99 & Free Shipping @ EB Games Canada! (EXPIRED)

Posted by on June 6, 2015 at 8:02 AM

Nintendo Wii System (Refurb) only $49.99 & Free Shipping @ EB Games Canada! (EXPIRED)

If anyone out there doesn’t yet have a Nintendo Wii and you’re looking for something to entertain the kids, then consider buying this refurbished model from EB Games Canada. Coming in at only $49.99, the refurbished Nintendo Wii can be yours, with free shipping to your home!

Included in this bundle:

Refurbished Wii System, 1 Wii Remote Controller, 1 Wii Nunchuk Controller

It sounds like you don’t get any games with the initial package, so keep that in mind when you place your order. You might want to throw something like Mario Kart or Shaun White Skateboarding in your cart too.

The Nintendo Wii page above doesn’t state how long the warranty is on this refurbished item, but on this page, EB Games state that there is a 30 day limited warranty on refurbished hardware. Obviously that’s not a very long time period, but it should be more than enough to get your console set up and make sure it’s in working order.

Price Comparison?

I tried to check the price for other Nintendo Wiis online, but there are not many places selling refurbished models to accurately compare the pricing. If you were to buy a Wii, you’d be looking at around $100+ even for just a used model on Amazon.ca or eBay. At least if you buy from EB Games, you’ve got that 30 day warranty in case anything happens.

Wii Modding?

This is something I’ve heard of but never tried to do myself. You can mod your Wii to play backup games, stored on an external device. This probably negates any kind of warranty you’d get with a Wii… but if you’re only spending $50 on one, then it won’t break the bank.

Wii Memories!

Can you believe that the Nintendo Wii was first released in 2006 – that’s nine years ago! Until I started writing this article, I didn’t realise that it had been around for quite as long as that. I think I got a Nintendo Wii back in or around 2008, after the initial hype had died down a bit. That very same device is now sitting in a box in my attic… loved no more! However, back in the day, I used it a lot. When friends came round for parties (before we had kids!), we’d crack out the Wii and have some Mario Kart fun, along with a few other party games. I also used the Wii to get fitter – using the balance board and some fitness games. It worked for a while… although in thinking about that right now, I should probably give it another try. Nintendo Wii System (Refurb) only $49.99 & Free Shipping @ EB Games Canada! (EXPIRED)

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

Posted by on May 16, 2015 at 1:00 PM

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?

  • 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.

YOOHOO! Anybody home? The PlayStation Network is currently having a sweet sale on Batman: Arkham City for the PlayStation 3 with 60% off the game, bundles, challenge packs, the LEGO version, and more.

  • Batman: Arkham City – Robin bundle: reg. $6.99/ now $2.80
  • Batman: Arkham City – Catwoman bundle: reg. $9.99/ now $4

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.

These are all RPG games but if you’re looking for a fighter game, then you could get Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition for either PS3 or PS4 on sale for $12 (reg. $29.99). You will find iconic characters like Batman, Green Lantern, the Flash, Wonder Woman, Superman and the Joker. You can play it with up to two players.

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)

(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.
