The Source Canada Promo Code: $10 Off Select Xbox One Games

Just yesterday I wrote about a fantastic deal on iPad cases at The Source and yet, it looks like they’re at it again, having released yet another deal but this time for $10 off select Xbox One games.

Click here to save on select Xbox One games @ TheSource.ca now

  • Coupon Code: TSXBOX
  • Discount: $10 off select Xbox One games
  • Expiry: 30th April 2014

Originally priced at $59.99, below is a list of the Xbox One games you can save $10 on and get for just $49.99:

Personally, I’m particularly excited to try Forza Motorsport 5, a racing game, especially since an update was just released in an effort to address the numerous complaints the game received upon its release. In fact, here’s what Shaun McInnis from GameSpot wrote about this awesome game:

All of this combined makes Forza Motorsport 5 an outstanding improvement to an already excellent racing franchise. It’s far more than just a great racing sim, or a gorgeous showcase for the types of feats the Xbox One hardware is capable of. This is a game built on the romantic thrill of motorsport in all its forms, and that love for its subject matter is all but impossible to resist.

Shipping is at a flat rate of $4.99 per order, so in the spirit of saving money, I definitely suggest opting for the free in-stores pick-up instead. As always, this The Source promo code may also be found on our forum.

Microsoft Canada: Buy an Xbox 360 Game Now, Trade it in to Get the Xbox One Version for Only $10! (In Store)

Posted by on September 5, 2013 at 11:00 AM

Microsoft Canada: Buy an Xbox 360 Game Now, Trade it in to Get the Xbox One Version for Only $10! (In Store)

Don’t want to wait until November 22 to get that sweet, sweet game for Xbox One, but don’t want to waste money on games for the Xbox 360? Microsoft Canada has a solution.

First thing I want to point out is that this is only available if you can make it in to a physical Microsoft store, and there are not a lot of them. The few they do have are in big, populated areas, but I figured I’d put the deal up here anyway. I know a lot of people might be excluded from this deal, but a lot of people live in these cities too. There are two locations in Toronto, one in Vancouver and one in Burnaby. They are building one in the West Edmonton Mall and a second in Burnaby. If you can’t make it to one of these places, I’m sorry, you’re out of luck.

I think we can all agree (because gamers are notorious for agreeing on the internet) that Microsoft messed up the launch of the Xbox One. I’ve been watching E3 for a long time and I’ve never seen a crowd lose it over an announcement as much as they did over the PS4. At that moment, the xBone was born and Microsoft started backpedaling.

One of the things they are doing to dig out of the hole they have created for themselves is this deal. You buy an Xbox 360 game now and bring it in, with your receipt, to a physical Microsoft Store and trade it in for the Xbox One version for only $10. It’s an amazing deal and I hope someone at Playstation decides to do this too!

It’s only available on certain big title games. The games are:

  • Battlefield 4
  • Madden NFL 25
  • Need for Speed Rivals
  • Call of Duty: Ghosts
  • NBA2K14
  • FIFA 14
  • Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

These are all big name games that are going to be murder to wait for!

EBGames: Pre-Owned Gears of War (Xbox) only $4.99 + Shipping

Posted by on September 5, 2013 at 8:00 AM

EBGames: Pre Owned Gears of War (Xbox) only $4.99 + Shipping

EB Games Canada is selling pre-owned copies of Gears of War (Xbox 360) for only $4.99. This is down from their previous used price of $7.99 and is a stark contrast to the price of the game new, still around $20 at most places.

Sure the game has been kicking around for a while but not all gamers get the newest or the best as soon as it comes out. I know a lot of us are on a budget and wait for killer deals to pick up games we have been wanting to try for a while. Has Gears of War been on your list? Well now you can spend a mere $5 to pick up the wildly popular title.

Yes the game is pre-owned, but EB Games is pretty good at making sure that used games are in great shape before they resell them.

The downside of the deal? You have to pay for shipping unless you can figure out how to pick up at your local store, an option I couldn’t find at checkout. Shipping is $4.99 (I know, painful) so your total cost is $9.98. Let us keep this in perspective. Amazon Canada is charging $25.26 for the game new, and Future Shop has it for $9.99 used + shipping.

This deal actually works best if you are already buying something at EB Games. Just add it on and get yourself a game on the cheap.

Future Shop Canada: Xbox Days

Future Shop Canada: Xbox Days

I nearly missed Xbox days at Future Shop which would have been a crying shame. Today and tomorrow you can still enjoy Xbox Days with great savings on Xbox accessories and console bundles.

If you need a new Xbox this bundle certainly is appetizing: the Xbox 360 250GB Spring Value Bundle With Gears Of War: Judgment & Halo 4 is on sale from $399.99 down to $299.99. You also get a FREE digital copy of Halo Reach with your purchase of this Xbox 360 bundle. I like added bonuses.

Need an extra controller? That is easy! Future Shop has the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller  on sale for only $39.99, that is $20 off the regular price. Or you could spring for the Microsoft Xbox 360 Essentials Pack which comes with a controller, HDMI cable, remote, and three month Xbox Live Gold Membership. All of this is on sale for $69.99, you save $20.

If you have got a taste for the Xbox Live Gold Membership and found you want more – Future Shop has a 12-Month Xbox LIVE Gold Membership Card on sale for only $39.99, regularly $59.99. That works out to around $3.33 a month to enjoy the benefits of Xbox Live Gold.

Get free shipping on orders of $20 or more.

WagJag Canada: 40% Off xBox 360 & Kinect & 2 Games! (Now $199)

Posted by on April 21, 2013 at 7:00 AM

WagJag Canada: 40% Off xBox 360 & Kinect & 2 Games! (Now $199)

With this superfantastic deal from WagJag, there is no reason not to own an xBox 360 anymore!

That intro was a lie. Maybe you just don’t want an xBox 360. I’m okay with that. I understand. Especially if you already have a PS3 or an xBox 360. For those of you who want one, this is a great chance to get one for super cheap. Also, Superfantastic is a word. Look it up. No, don’t. That was also a lie.

This is what the deal includes:

  • 4GB xBox 360
  • Kinect Sensor
  • Two games – Kinect Disneyland Adventures and Kinect Adventures
  • One controller

The games included aren’t the best things out there but they are fun enough to toy around with and to test the Kinect. The retail price of this package is $338 but you get it for only $199. You save $139! This deal is limited so if you’re gonna get one, get one now. Shipping is included in the price.

EB Games Canada: $25 Gift Card w/ Purchase Of Select xBox 360s + 30% Off xBox Accessories

Posted by on April 14, 2013 at 5:30 PM

EB Games Canada: $25 Gift Card w/ Purchase Of Select xBox 360s + 30% Off xBox Accessories

Late to the xBox game? Well, now is the time to pick one up! And if you’re picking one up anyways, you might as well get it at EB Games and get a $25 gift card with it!

They have two different xBox 360s sets available. One is the xBox 360 Elite 250GB and one is, from what I can tell, the same console but with two games. I feel like I must be missing something but it is what it is. Shipping will be around the $10 mark for the consoles and $5 for the accessories and games.

It’s hard to do an article about the xBox 360 because I feel like everyone who would buy one already knows about it. The xBox is just a great console with great games. You can’t say much else about it. It has awesome games, a great online experience and it can be used as the center of your living room’s media setup.

The main part of this deal, for me, is the $25 EB gift card. That in itself is enough to make it a good deal, but EB just won’t quit! They are also offering up to 30% off the xBox 360 headset, the xBox 360 controller or a twelve month xBox Live plan. You can even get a deal on Halo 4!

Since I don’t really have much to say about the xBox 360, how about you tell me about the xBox 360? Is this your first xBox 360 or have you had one for a while? Why do you love it? Is it the games? The media stuff? Maybe you just love Kinect! Whatever it is, let me know in the comments below!

WagJag Canada: xBox 360 4GB w/ Kinect + 2 FREE Games Only $200 (Save $100)

WagJag Canada: xBox 360 4GB w/ Kinect + 2 FREE Games Only $200 (Save $100)

WagJag Canada is bringing the serious gaming love with the great xBox 360 Kinect bundle!

These generally retail for about $299 with only one game. So all said and done you’re probably saving $120. The bundle comes with a 4GB xBox 360, a Kinect, Disneyland Adventures and Kinect Adventure. Not a bad haul for only $200 bucks.

If you are so inclined, you can actually use your Kinect to control other stuff. There are tons of projects out there, some easy DIY stuff, some more complex projects, that allow you to use the Kinect as an interface for other things. This video has some neat Kinect based projects. Even if you aren’t technologically inclined, people have written programs that let you do some neat stuff. You can just install them on your computer like any other program.

This deal is very limited in quantity so if you want one, get it right now!

(Expires: 24th February 2013 but quantities are limited!)

Amazon Canada: XBOX Street Fighter IV now $5.32 (Was $49.99)

Posted by on October 29, 2012 at 10:00 PM

Amazon Canada: XBOX Street Fighter IV now $5.32 (Was $49.99)

So pretty much you get a kick ass game, Street Fighter IV, for only $5.32. The original retail price was $49.99. You do the math, this deal is AWESOME!

Just to give you an idea of how CHEAP this deal is… EBgames has Street Fighter IV, new, for $24.98 and even the used version is $14.95.

So what can I say about a game I have never played? Well, it has a Metascore of 93/100, which is pretty darn high. Gamesrater gave this review:

It will be like playing “SFII” for the first time all over again, only with the years of love and experience you’ve since gained already built in. To long-term Street Fighter fans, everything old is new again. To the new players, we simply say welcome to the party. You’re going to have a hell of a good time.

So enjoy the good price and the great game!

Gamestop Canada: Nintendo Wii Bundle $99.99 + Power Sale

Gamestop Canada: Nintendo Wii Bundle $99.99 + Power Sale

Gamestop Canada is now offering the Nintendo Wii Bundle of a Nintendo Wii, Wii Sports, Wii Remote and Wii Nunchuk Controller for only $99.99 (save $80). Also they are having a Power Sale, which great discounts on a load of games for the Wii, xbox and PS3.

There are no Wii bundles as mentioned for $99.99 available online that I can find, so I am guessing this is an in store offer, I suggest you check out a store near you and get one fast if you want it.

The game deals are not bad: anywhere from $14.99 – $49.99. They have some good trade in deals as well for extra credit, and extra discounts on buying used consoles. The Power Sale goes through July 24th, 2011.

Dell: Xbox 360 4GB Console Bundle with Kinect and Kinectimals (Save $50)

Dell is offering the VERY popular Xbox 360 bundle with a 4GB Xbox, Kinect, and the games Kinect Adventures and Kinectimals for only $299.99, $50 off the retail price of $349.99. This deal is on Jan 31st and Feb 1 only, so if you fancy some no controller game playing, check it out. Not bad deal really, nearly 15% off.

I watched one of these being played in Best Buy a couple months ago and it is really cool. You need a room big enough to do so, but it is just so cool how it detects your body and then whatever you do with your body shows up on the screen. You raise your arms.. so does the character on the screen, balance on one leg.. so does it.. etc. The ultimate in freedom. I think this is the way of gaming in the future.
