Game Access Canada: Far Cry 3 (Used) For The Xbox 360 | Was $20 Now $8

Game Access Canada: Far Cry 3 (Used) For The Xbox 360 | Was $20 Now $8

Good afternoon, Bargainmoosers! Game Access currently has a good deal on used copies of Far Cry 3 for the Xbox 360 video game system. Originally $19.99, you can now purchase this game for $7.72 (plus $3 shipping). That’s a pretty sweet deal! This game was also quite popular when it was originally released, so if you’ve never played it before, this may be a good chance to try it out.

Far Cry 3 is a quality first person shooter for the Xbox 360. It gets rave reviews from both critics and gamers alike, and it currently has a score of 91 on Metacritic – that’s no easy feat! It’s a title that continually gets praised to this day.

So I’d like to take this opportunity to share a story that’s related to this game. Early last year, I decided to randomly pick up some Taco Bell at a shopping mall – it had been a long while since I’d bitten into some delicious salty tacos, and I had a particular craving for Fries Supreme. So Taco Bell was running a promotion where you can get the chance to win a PS3 and some other assorted prizes, and when I removed the coupon from the side of my soft drink, I found out that I won Far Cry 3 for the Playstation 3!

This was a very recent release at the time, and I was surprised that I actually won a decent prize from one of those contests! Unfortunately, reality set in – I didn’t have a PS3 system at the time! I just had an Xbox 360. After I eventually received this game in the mail, I ended up selling it on Kijiji for $20 off the retail price at the time – at least someone else was able to enjoy it, and I was able to afford more tacos and Fries Supreme from Taco Bell!

If you were to buy Far Cry 3 for the Xbox 360 at Best Buy, it would cost you $19.99 (plus shipping), and it’s currently $17.88 at Amazon (plus shipping). Listed below is a brief review of Far Cry 3 for the Xbox 360 from a satisfied Game Access customer:

The organic nature of the open world of Far Cry 3 is what won me over. The island simply feels alive, from the animals, weather, people and activities to accomplish, it’s a terrific experience. The story is also a great time, but the world is really the draw here.

This deal will expire before midnight, so if you’re looking for an affordable game to try out for the Xbox 360 system, then you should consider getting Far Cry 3. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Posted by on October 25, 2014 at 8:37 AM

Best Buy Canada: Pre Order White Xbox One Sunset Overdrive 500GB System Bundle | $465 Value Now $400

Hey there, my fellow gamers! Best Buy currently has pre-orders available for the new White Xbox One Sunset Overdrive system bundle, and until October 30th, you can get it for $399.99! The value of this bundle is $464.99, and Xbox One systems with no games included typically retail for the same price ($399.99). Plus, you’ll also qualify for free shipping! Even though it won’t begin to ship until October 28th (this Tuesday), stock is very limited right now, so this will be your chance to still get this great deal!

This special White Xbox One Sunset Overdrive bundle comes with the system (with 500GB of storage space), a wireless controller, and a digital copy of the new Sunset Overdrive game (you’ll just have to redeem your download voucher online, so no physical copy of the game is included, but you get a full download of the game). It also includes special Day One Edition in-game content for this brand spanking new game, which is already getting major airtime (you may have seen the commercial for the game by now).

Sunset Overdrive is currently getting some major hype, as this fun-looking game has been anticipated for quite a while. Now that it’s going to be released this Tuesday, people that were waiting for the right time to purchase an Xbox One system can finally do so. After all, you’re essentially getting the game for free with the Xbox One console for this price ($399.99).

If you went to WalMart and bought an Xbox One system with no games, it would cost you $399.99, and a copy of Sunset Overdrive would be an extra $64.96. I’ve included a brief review of the Xbox One system from a satisfied Best Buy customer below:

My son has been very happy with the xbox one. He loves the upgrade that allows him to watch TV while playing a game.

Best Buy doesn’t have many of these systems remaining in stock at this time, so check out this deal while it’s still available! I hope you enjoy the rest of your Saturday, my fellow Bargainmoosers!

Newegg Canada: Digital Games Sale – Save Up To 70% On Square Enix Titles

Posted by on October 22, 2014 at 10:30 AM

Newegg Canada: Digital Games Sale   Save Up To 70% On Square Enix Titles

Newegg is currently having a digital games sale, which should please PC Steam users. Right now, you can save up to 70% on a deep selection of Square Enix titles, which includes familiar games like Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light ($2.99 - was $9.99), Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut ($6.99 – was $19.99), and  Sleeping Dogs ($6.99 – was $19.99). What’s great about purchasing digital games is the fact that you can play the games that you bought shortly after purchasing them! This sale is on until October 24th, so take advantage of these sales while you can.

This is one sweet sale from Newegg. From Tomb Raider to Kain & Lynch, there are plenty of familiar franchises that you can find here. Some other great games that are worth checking out here include Thief ($10.49 – was $29.99), Tomb Raider: Anniversary ($3.14 - was $8.99), and Hitman Absolution Professional Edition ($10.49 – was $29.99).

Seeing a good mix of older and new games in this sale started to make me feel a little nostalgic. I first played Tomb Raider on a demo disc for the Playstation 1. Remember how awesome those PS1 demo discs were? They would be packed with tons of playable demos, so you would be able to try out a myriad of different games before you purchased them. Anyways, when I first tried out Tomb Raider (it was Tomb Raider 2), I thought the controls were slightly clunky and unresponsive, but it was still a cool game. The newer Tomb Raider games thankfully have much better controls, and look fantastic, too!

Hitman Absolution Professional Edition usually sells for $29.99 on Amazon’s American website. Listed below is a brief review of this game from a satisfied Amazon customer:

I gave it a 5 out of 5 stars because it is a game with an interesting story line, many ways to fulfill objectives, and has plenty of replay-ability. I usually steer away from 1 player games because I like the dynamics of playing against human opponents. With this Hitman I have gone back and tried new ways of taking down enemies and used different locations to draw or distract my victims.

If you enjoy playing PC games, and you’re a fan of Square Enix, then do yourself a favour and check out this deal. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Game Access Canada: The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct For The Xbox 360 (Used) | Was $50 Now $8 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on October 21, 2014 at 9:30 AM

Game Access Canada: The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct For The Xbox 360 (Used) | Was $50 Now $8 (EXPIRED)

Good morning! Today’s deal at Game Access Canada is an enticing one for Walking Dead fans and Xbox 360 owners – you can now get a used copy of The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct for the Xbox 360 for just $7.72 (plus $3 shipping). You can’t go wrong for that price, especially when the game normally retails for $49.99!

If you’ve ever wanted to dive into a virtual Walking Dead world, then this is your chance. The publisher behind The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is Activision, who is behind the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games for the PS1 and N64 (remember how awesome they were before they released like 20 versions of the game, people). Activision has actually been around since the Atari 2600 was released, and is also known for their runaway hit, Pitfall!

This would be a great gift for Walking Dead fans. Even if the game may not be the best in the world, it’s always fun for fans to enjoy a video game based on movies or TV shows that they enjoy (unless it’s Beetlejuice for the original Nintendo… that game was just brutally hard). With a plot involving zombies, what could be more fun?

If you were to purchase The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct for the Xbox 360 at Amazon, it would cost you $28.19. I’ve included a snippet of a review of this Walking Dead game that was posted on Metacritic below:

The first person combat is fun, the storytelling is decent at best and the game has a somewhat unique art style to it. Visually it isn’t really all that impressive but it captures the atmosphere of a post-apocalyptic, zombie ridden world quite well and, well it has that ”Walking Dead” feel overall. All in all it’s a great package.

If you love The Walking Dead, then you should consider checking out this game. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Posted by on October 20, 2014 at 9:30 AM

Best Buy Canada: Buy 3 Select PS4 Titles And Get 25% Off Each Game

Calling all PS4 gamers! Best Buy is currently having a decent deal for those that are looking to augment their Sony PS4 video game collection – when you purchase at least 3 select PS4 games, you’ll get 25% off of each game! That’s a sweet deal for those that are doing their Christmas shopping now – after all, if you’re planning to buy some of these games anyways, why not take advantage of these savings? You’ll also qualify for free shipping with your order.

There are quite a few PS4 games that you can choose from for this deal, including many titles that were recently released! Most of the titles that qualify for this deal are at least $40 (except for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, Rayman Legends, and Trials Fusion, which are $29.99 each). Some of the titles that you can save on with this deal include the recently released and highly popular Destiny ($52.49 - was $69.99), EA Sports UFC ($52.49 - was $69.99), NHL 2015 ($52.49 - was $69.99), Diablo III ($41.24 - was $54.99), and Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn ($33.74 - was $44.99). If the game is at least $40, it will qualify for this deal. Remember that you have to purchase at least 3 of these PS4 games to qualify for this deal – if you did, you’ll see the amount that you’re saving in your shopping cart.

I don’t have a PS4 system yet, but it looks like there’s plenty of great games that are currently out. From classic sports titles like FIFA 2015 to the latest popular titles like Destiny, the PS4 is definitely picking up some steam!

If you were to purchase these titles anywhere else, you’d be paying the regular retail prices that Best Buy usually charges – for example, Destiny was just released about a month ago, and it’s more than $69 everywhere (it’s $69.99 at Future Shop, and $69.96 at WalMart). I’ve listed a brief review of Destiny for the PS4 from a satisfied Future Shop customer below:

Since I received my copy of Destiny for PS4 I have not been able to stop playing it. It puts Titanfall to shame!

This deal may not last for long, so check it out while it’s still valid! Happy gaming, my fellow Bargainmoosers!

Game Access Canada: Thief For The Xbox One (Used) | Was $50 Now $20 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on October 19, 2014 at 4:00 PM

Game Access Canada: Thief For The Xbox One (Used) | Was $50 Now $20 (EXPIRED)

Hey there, Bargainmoosers! Xbox One owners may find today’s deal particularly enticing – you can order a used copy of Thief for the Xbox One from Game Access for just $19.72 (plus $3 shipping). The regular price of this game is $49.99, and it’s currently on sale at Best Buy and Future Shop for $39.99.

Thief for the Xbox One is a game created by Eidos and Square Enix. It has some mixed reviews online, but I usually tend to take movie and video game based reviews with a grain of salt. After all, the experience that you have with a movie or a video game will typically be different from others. That’s why it’s great that we’re all different – if we all thought the same way about certain things, then planet Earth would be one boring place!

Personally, I know of plenty movies and games that I love that my friends don’t particularly like. For example, the game The Adventures Of Bayou Billy is one of my favourite classic Nintendo games, but most reviewers don’t think very highly of this game. Maybe it’s due to nostalgia, but I still think the game had some awesome graphics and music for its time. Thief for the Xbox One may have some detractors, but there are still people out there who enjoy the game.

I’ve included a brief review of Thief for the Xbox One from a satisfied Best Buy customer:

It is a great game, but it’s not for everyone, more of a niché thing. If you are buying this game, you know what you want and you will not be disappointed.

If you want to check out this game for the Xbox One, all you have to do is take advantage of this deal from Game Access! Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

66% Off The Stanley Parable @ Steam: Only $5.77 (PC Game)

Posted by on October 18, 2014 at 11:00 AM

66% Off The Stanley Parable @ Steam: Only $5.77 (PC Game)

I spotted a deal on Steam for a little indie game called The Stanley Parable. It’s currently down to only $5.77CA, a 66% discount on the regular price!

The description of the game is quite intriguing, and captured my imagination:

…is a first person exploration game. You will play as Stanley, and you will not play as Stanley. You will follow a story, you will not follow a story. You will have a choice, you will have no choice. The game will end, the game will never end.

From what I saw, it looked like the “locked room” or “hidden object” type games which I really enjoy to play in my spare time. I instantly bought The Stanley Parable… so thought I should play it for 15 minutes before I started to write this blog post. When I started playing, it almost feels more like one of those “choose your own adventure” type games, as I had to make choices as to which door to go through, and things like that.

Throughout the course of the game, there is a very funny narrating voice, with comments such as:

Stanley stepped into the broom closet, but there was nothing here, so he turned around and got back on track.

I got to the “end” of one story line of the game, and it just restarted back at the start, enabling me to play again and make different choices.

I had a smile on my face the whole time I was playing this little game, it’s got a very good sense of dry and witty humour. I’ve only played it for half an hour so far, but I will be playing it more this evening.

When googling for reviews, The Stanley Parable scores 88% on Metacritic, and 9/10 from over 13k reviews on Steam itself. Some very good scores! IGN states that it is:

…witty, unusual and quietly discomfiting, The Stanley Parable is a successful experiment in interactive narrative.

For less than $6, this is a bargain indie game for a few hours of fun.

Best Buy Canada: Ryse Son Of Rome For The Xbox One | Was $50 Now $30 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on October 16, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Best Buy Canada: Ryse Son Of Rome For The Xbox One | Was $50 Now $30 (EXPIRED)

Oh hey there, my fellow deal hunters! Best Buy is currently having a sale on an intriguing Xbox One title today, and you’ll be able to save $20 from the regular price of this video game. You can now get Ryse: Son Of Rome for the Xbox One for just $29.99 – the regular price of this game is $49.99. You’ll also qualify for free shipping!

Ryse: Son Of Rome for the Xbox One is a game with an enticing theme. In this Xbox One game, you get to fight for the glory of the Roman Empire – just lead your army in battle and let the chaos ensue!

When I was a young lad, I remember watching plenty of movies that were about the Roman Empire, since my dad would always be watching them. There were many great classic movies that made me crave for a video game that would allow you to fight with or against the Romans – it just seemed like it would be a lot of fun!

Unfortunately, I didn’t know too many games with that type of theme at the time (besides Warriors Of Rome for the Sega Genesis, but I didn’t even know that existed until earlier this year). Alas, I was happy to play Trojan for the original Nintendo, since you battled some post-apocalyptic Romans near the end of the game (it had a Mad Max-like plot).

If you were to purchase Ryse: Son Of Rome at Buy Electronics Canada, it would cost you $59.99, and it’s currently $49.99 at the Microsoft Store. I’ve included a snippet of a review of this game that’s listed on the Metacritic website below:

I literally can’t wait to get home everyday and play Ryse. I just can’t get it off my mind. It has Unbelievanly addictive multiplayer, stunning graphics, and visuals. And dont even get me started on the campaign. It is the next thing since the last of us that actually touched my heart.

This deal expires tonight, so take advantage of this deal while you still can! I hope you’re all enjoying your Thursday, Bargainmoosers!

Game Access Canada: Titanfall For The Xbox One (Used) | Was $50 Now $20

Posted by on October 15, 2014 at 9:30 AM

Game Access Canada: Titanfall For The Xbox One (Used) | Was $50 Now $20

Good morning, my fellow deal hunters! Today’s deal at Game Access will certainly get some love from Xbox One owners – it’s for a used copy of Titanfall! Normally retailing for $49.99, you can now get this game for just $19.72 (plus $3 shipping). This game was released with plenty of hype earlier this year, and gets rave reviews from both critics and gamers. It even has a total score of 86 on Metacritic, which is no easy task!

This innovative shooter for the Xbox One system is a popular one. Originally released in March, it came about with a great amount of hype – and it lived up to it all! I’ve even seen some people wearing Titanfall t-shirts in public – the only other video game related apparel I usually see people wear are Nintendo brands (Mario and Zelda, mostly), so this just shows how beloved Titanfall is.

I’ve yet to try out this game, but I hope to do so sometime soon! Reviewers are saying some great things about Titanfall for the Xbox One, and I hope to try it out in the near future.

This game currently costs $49.99 at Best Buy and Future Shop. I’ve included a snippet of a review for the Xbox One version of Titanfall from X One Magazine below:

Titanfall is a ridiculous amount of fun. Maybe it’ll be surpassed, but right now it’s the best game on Xbox One and one of the best multiplayer shooters ever.

Vandal Online also had some great things to say about this highly praised Xbox One game:

We feel like this is next-gen gameplay. Titanfall proves that there’s still room for innovation in shooting games, and we’ve had a blast playing it. It could have had next-gen visuals, though, and then it would have been the bomb.

Due to the popularity of this game, it may not be in stock for very long, so take advantage of this deal while it’s still available! I hope you all enjoy your day today, my fellow Bargainmoosers!

Game Access Canada: Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3 For The Xbox 360 (Used) | Was $30 Now $8 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on October 13, 2014 at 9:30 AM

Game Access Canada: Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3 For The Xbox 360 (Used) | Was $30 Now $8 (EXPIRED)

Looking for another Call Of Duty game to sink your teeth into? Today’s deal of the day at Game Access is for a used copy of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for the Xbox 360, which you can purchase for $7.72 (plus $3 shipping). The regular price of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for the Xbox 360 is $29.99, so this is a pretty sweet deal! Just click on the link below to learn more about this deal.

Online multiplayer is one of the most popular features in Call Of Duty games. These games are incredibly popular nowadays, and they had their roots on the PC and eventually ended up on consoles like the Playstation 2, Xbox, and Gamecube systems more than a decade ago. It’s crazy to think that there are currently 13 instalments in this familiar series of video games.

Finding an affordable Xbox 360 game isn’t too hard to do nowadays, especially when many retail locations are having some great sales on them on a regular basis. After all, the newer generation consoles like the PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Wii U are getting most of the glory nowadays, but gamers still love their PS3 and Xbox 360 systems – especially since the PS4 and Xbox One currently aren’t backwards compatible and won’t play these older games (the Wii U plays original Wii games, thankfully).

This is a pretty great deal! You just can’t go wrong for $7.72 (plus $3 shipping). If you were to purchase Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for the Xbox 360 at Best Buy or Future Shop, it would cost you $29.99. I’ve included a snippet of a review of this game from a satisfied Best Buy customer below:

I could never put this game down. The campaign was amazing and the special ops gave you something to do once the campaign finished. Special ops has waves of troops in each map with different difficulties and extra side missions. Multiplayer offers you even more as you rank up, giving you prestige modes. 

I hope you all enjoy your Thanksgiving Monday, my fellow Bargainmoosers!

Game Access Canada: Call Of Duty: Ghosts For The Sony PS4 (Used) | Was $60 Now $20 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on October 12, 2014 at 11:00 AM

Game Access Canada: Call Of Duty: Ghosts For The Sony PS4 (Used) | Was $60 Now $20 (EXPIRED)

PS4 owners should check out Game Access’ deal of the day today – it’s for a used copy of Call Of Duty: Ghosts. Normally $59.99, you can now get this PS4 game for just $19.72 (plus $3 shipping). If you just got a Sony PS4 system and want to pick up an affordable game that’s fun to play and has an addicting online multiplayer mode, then you should definitely check out this deal!

The PS4 version of Call Of Duty: Ghosts has some incredible graphics, and is exactly what you’d expect from the Call Of Duty series: Easy-to-control gameplay, an intense online multiplayer mode, and an abundance of fun.

When I see games like Call Of Duty, it harkens me back to the days when I played the early first-person-shooter games like Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, Quake, and Duke Nukem 3D. Oh Duke Nukem – the 12-year-old me loved your profane yet hilarious one-liners and references to They Live (starring Roddy Piper – yeah, that Roddy Piper).

The first-person-shooter genre was so revolutionary for its time. I remember getting a Sega 32X (an attachment for the Sega Genesis that allowed you to play a small selection of powerful-for-its-time 32-bit games) just so I can play Doom on a home console. Nowadays, these FPS games are much more advanced, and have plenty of extra features (and they look A LOT better), but they still retain that simplistic yet fun gameplay where you “kill or be killed”.

Call Of Duty: Ghosts for the PS4 currently costs $49.99 at Best Buy and Future Shop. I’ve included a brief review of this game from a satisfied Best Buy customer below:

I love this game! Fantastic graphics, smooth controls, a pretty good storyline, and lots of play variety: stealth, action, in the jungle, in the city, in buildings, rappelling down a building, on water, in water, underwater, on ice, in space, in a tank, in a helicopter, lots of weapons and lots more! Highly recommended.

This deal expires tomorrow, so check it out now! Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Game Access Canada: inFamous Second Son For The Sony PS4 (Used) | Was $70 Now $20 (EXPIRED)

Game Access Canada: inFamous Second Son For The Sony PS4 (Used) | Was $70 Now $20 (EXPIRED)

Good morning, my fellow gamers! Today’s daily deal at Game Access is for a used copy of inFamous Second Son for the Sony PS4 system – usually retailing for $69.99, you can now get this game for just $19.72 (plus $3 shipping).

A PS4 exclusive, inFamous Second Son has an interesting plot where humans hunt down any superhumans that they can find. With an open world to explore, it’s easy to see why this game is very popular with PS4 owners!

I have yet to try out this game for the PS4 (I don’t own a PS4 video game system yet – the newest system I have is the Wii U). It does look like it would be a lot of fun to play. Plus, the graphics are so incredibly detailed – this is one of the perks of playing a game on a next-generation console.

When it comes to games on the next-gen systems, I’m sure that the best is yet to come! After all, PS4 and Xbox One systems are barely a year old right now, so there are still plenty other gems that will be released within the next year.

If you were to purchase this game at WalMart or Amazon, it would cost you $39.96. I’ve listed a snippet of a review of inFamous Second Son for the PS4 from a satisfied Game Access customer below:

Amazing game to play, like The Last Of Us and Red Dead Redemption it is not a game you want to miss. It has amazing visuals, very fluent gameplay, the controls felt polished, your movements are fine tuned, and the story line itself was very good (typical good vs evil). The only real downside to this game is the fact that it is very short.

If you’re looking for a new adventure to play on your PS4 system, then you should consider picking up this game. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

EB Games: 60 – 70% Off Civilization Titles

Posted by on October 8, 2014 at 1:00 PM

EB Games: 60   70% Off Civilization Titles

EB Games Digital is offering 70% off almost all Civilization titles right now. The only title not 70% off is Civilization V Complete Edition for 60% off.

I am the perfect person to be writing this deal because my computer has over 1000 hours clocked in to Civ 5 so far. Granted, those are not all me as my husband is an active player as well. However, I know my way around Civilization V like the back of my hand. I also played Civilization IV, but not the titles before it.

Here are some of the discounts you can expect:

I currently play Civilization V with both the Brave New World and the Gods and Kings expansions will all character DLCs. I have not bothered to buy the bonus maps packs unless they came with the character packs as I play multi-player most of the time.

Civilization rocks because you really can bring a lot to the game. Choose the type of map that suits the leaders you like to play. You pick the leaders you like to play based on your own playing style. You can either make up for your playing ‘deficits’ through leaders or go for your strong points. For example: my husband often has the lowest army and the lowest population in early game. He can either play someone with their special troops early in the game to encourage army grown (like Greece), or he can play someone who specializes in grown (like Gandhi) to help even out his game play. My husband is always heavy into tech so playing Nebuchadnezzar plays to his strengths.

I develop somewhat of an insular nation by nature. I always aim for high production through high growth rates. Thus, Gandhi is one of my favourite characters to play as his bonus can sustain a larger population, which means more tiles for production. When I do go warmonger, I really enjoy Ethiopia because you can pair their ‘smaller than other civilization’ bonus up with +30% city defenses from religion for a formidable opponent in war.

This game is a great waste of time. It is on sale because the next installment of Civilization, called Civilization: beyond Earth, is scheduled for release on the 24th of October.

Game Access Canada: Need For Speed Rivals For The Sony PS4 (Used) | Was $50 Now $20 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on October 7, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Game Access Canada: Need For Speed Rivals For The Sony PS4 (Used) | Was $50 Now $20 (EXPIRED)

Game Access is providing gamers with another great deal! Today’s daily deal is for a used copy of Need For Speed Rivals for the Sony Playstation 4 system, which you can now get for $19.72 (plus $3 shipping). The regular price of this popular racing game is $49.99, so you’re saving $30.27 with this deal!

If you’re looking for high speed chases and racing thrills, then this is the right game for you. The Need For Speed series has been loved by video game fans since it first appeared on PCs back in 1995. Technically, it was on an obscure video game system known as the Panasonic 3DO at first in 1994 (Electronic Arts, the company behind this popular series, were one of the biggest supporters of this failed system). I actually had a 3D0 system back when I was 12 (it was only $50 at Microplay… plus, I wasn’t allowed to get a Playstation or N64 at the time).

I previously wrote about the PS3 version of this game, but this PS4 version of Need For Speed Rivals provides players with a truly breathtaking experience, thanks to the next-gen visuals in the game. The graphics are simply gorgeous! Even though the PS4 has barely scratched the surface in terms of its graphics capabilities, Need For Speed Rivals really shines on this console.

If you wanted to purchase Need For Speed Rivals for the PS4 at Best Buy, it would cost you $49.99, while a used copy at Future Shop is $39.99. I’ve included a snippet of a review of this game from a satisfied Game Access customer below:

This game is beautiful. The opening cinematics, the beads of water on your car, the environment, it’s a pleasure to look at and does a good job of showing off some of the PS4′s power, considering it’s a release game.

This deal will expire tomorrow. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Best Buy Canada: Free $70 Gift Card With 5 Game Pre-Orders

Best Buy Canada: Free $70 Gift Card With 5 Game Pre Orders

Stock up on games and save with Best Buy’s newest promotion. By pre-ordered five games right now, you will also receive a $70 e-gift card for free. Games for pre-order are available for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, Wii or PC.

Now at first glance I know you might be thinking that pre-ordering five games in one shot is a lot, but if you plan on getting these games anyways once they come out, then you might as well take advantage of this offer now. Plus, the way I see it is that since a typical game costs $70, for five, that comes up to $350 and even though you need to use the $70 gift card on a future purchase, it’s sort of like you’re getting a 20% discount. The only difference is that the savings aren’t instantaneous. Once you take advantage of this promotion, the $70 e-gift card will be sent by e-mail on December 22nd.

Luckily, not all games available for pre-order are $70 either. Just Dance 2015 for Wii and Wii U, for instance, is $39.99. Meanwhile Alien Isolation for Xbox 360 is $54.99.Although there are also games for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, below is a list of the games you can pre-order right now for PS4to take advantage of this deal.
