WalMart Canada: South Park The Stick Of Truth For Xbox 360 | Was $40 Now $20

Posted by on September 19, 2014 at 7:30 AM

WalMart Canada: South Park The Stick Of Truth For Xbox 360 | Was $40 Now $20

If you’re a fan of South Park, a show that has surprised everyone (including its creators) by sticking around for the past 17 years, then chances are you’ll get a kick out of this video game. South Park The Stick Of Truth is a hilarious RPG – style adventure that features most of the characters from this long running TV series, and it has gotten heaps of praise since it was initially released earlier this year. For a limited time, you can get a chance to snag South Park The Stick Of Truth for a cheap price for the Xbox 360 system – as a part of WalMart’s anniversary sale, you can get this game for just $19.99 - it’s normally $39.99! Plus, you’ll get free shipping!

Role playing games tend to take more time to complete than your average platform game. In South Park The Stick of Truth, you start off the game by creating your own custom character, and you join Cartman in his quest to battle for the almighty Stick Of Truth. Yeah, the plot isn’t very deep, but all of the dialogue is pretty hilarious, and it feels like you’re actually playing through an episode of South Park – the graphics are spot on!

I played the PC version of this game when it was just released earlier this year, and I had a lot of fun with it. I didn’t find it very challenging (you can also change the difficulty level), but that didn’t really matter to me – I just wanted to see how the story unfolded. It was that intriguing. I wanted to see what easter eggs and little surprises that Ubisoft tucked away in this game. For longtime fans of the show, this game is highly recommended for the jokes and references to older episodes alone.

Currently, South Park The Stick Of Truth for the Xbox 360 costs $39.99 at Best Buy and Future Shop. I’ve included a snippet of a review of the game from a satisfied Best Buy customer below:

If you are a fan of the show you’ll love this game. So many references to events in the show all over the game. Only down side for me is that the fart jokes get stale quick, but the rest is great. The actual gameplay is really fun and the graphics are great in that you feel like you are really in the cartoon.

If you’re a South Park fan and you’re looking to laugh during your video gaming experience, you should try out South Park The Stick Of Truth. If you’re not a fan of the show, perhaps you should pass on this one. Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

Toys R Us Canada: Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag Limited Edition Set PS3 And Xbox 360 Was $130 Now $60

Posted by on September 18, 2014 at 7:00 AM

Toys R Us Canada: Assassins Creed IV Black Flag Limited Edition Set PS3 And Xbox 360 Was $130 Now $60

Good morning, my fellow deal hunters! If you’re a fan of Ubisoft’s Assassins Creed game series, you may find this deal particularly alluring! Toys R Us is currently having a clearance sale on the limited edition box version of Assassin’s Creed IV for both the Sony PS3 and the Xbox 360. They normally retail for $129,99, but you can get it now for just $59.98! This order also qualifies for free shipping.

The limited edition Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag box set is a great package for fans of this series. It comes with some interesting goodies, including an 18″ Edward Kenway figurine, an 80 page art book, a pirate flag with crest, a steelbook case, and of course, the Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag game.

This game has developed quite a following over the years. I still remember some of my friends raving about its unique gameplay back when the first game in the series was released for the PS3 and Xbox 360. I tried out the second Assassin’s Creed at a friend’s house, and thought it was pretty fun. Definitely a game that appeals to teenagers and young adults.

This limited edition version of Asassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag for both the Xbox 360 and PS3 typically costs $129.99 at Best Buy, and it’s $129.96 at WalMart. Listed below is a snippet of a review for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag from a satisfied Amazon customer:

So what makes this game amazing. Lets start off with the landscape. It’s brilliant and beautiful…Really majestic. You don’t understand the scope of this game until you start playing. The world is surrounded by several small villages and three large cities. The only way to travese this open terrain with a horse. Fortunately they are about as easy to find as a car in todays society.

This is a great set for collectors. Get them while supplies last! I hope you all enjoy your day, Bargainmoosers – happy hunting!

WalMart Canada: Rocksmith 2014 For The Xbox 360 | Was $70 Now $35

Posted by on September 13, 2014 at 11:56 PM

WalMart Canada: Rocksmith 2014 For The Xbox 360 | Was $70 Now $35

Tired of Guitar Hero and Rockband? It’s cool – everyone else is, too. However, a revolutionary game out there that allows you to literally plug in an actual electric guitar into your video game system is Rocksmith. For a limited time, you can pick up Rocksmith 2014 for the Xbox 360 for just $34.96 – the regular price is $70. That’s 50% off! Plus, you’ll get free shipping.

Whether you’re a beginner that wants to try and learn how to play an electric guitar, or an expert that wants to jam to dozens of popular tracks, Rocksmith 2014 will keep you satisfied. This version of the game includes the cord that you need to plug in any electric guitar into your Xbox 360 system.

I’ve never tried any Rocksmith games before. It does sound like a fun game, so I hope to try it out sometime soon. I tried to play the guitar on several occasions when I was younger, but I just couldn’t “cut the mustard” (in other words – no one wanted to be around when I was practicing).

Regardless of my mediocre guitar playing abilities, I think this game is very intriguing. At Best Buy and Future Shop, Rocksmith 2014 retails for $74.95. Listed below is a snippet of a review of the game from a satisfied Best Buy customer:

I know it’s generous to give a 5 out of 5 rating, but in my opinion this game deserves it. The thing I really appreciate is the fact that there’s lessons for those who never played guitar, which really teaches you the basics and much more. Aside from that, the gameplay experience is just great and easy to understand.

I highly recommend getting Rocksmith 2014 for the Xbox 360 before it’s out of stock (like the PS3 version of the game). Good luck, Bargainmoosers!

Microsoft Store: Buy Xbox One & Get a Free Game

Posted by on September 5, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Microsoft Store: Buy Xbox One & Get a Free Game

Buy an Xbox One at the Microsoft Store and you’ll get a free game of your choice! You can choose from the console alone or a bundle and both will get you a free game.

When I added the Xbox One console to my cart for $399, it gave me the choice of 16 games, all with a regular price of $69.99 on average (some higher, some lower) or I could get an Xbox Live 12-month gold card for free, worth $59.99.

Taking a look around at prices elsewhere, most places sell the console and/or the bundle for the prices Microsoft is selling for, but none of them are including a free game.

My kids got the Wii U last year, but I’m considering getting them the Xbox One for Christmas this year. Now is the time to shop and get the best deals and not wait until the last minute at Christmas and hope for something really great. I like to be prepared while the weather is still hot and not wait until it is too cold to go outside.

What I like about Xbox One is the kinect feature, so they can actually get some exercise while they play their vids. I think would get them Kinect Sports Rivals as it looks like a super fun game with a lot of action. Getting it free saves me $60!

On the other hand, the gold membership is worth its weight in, well, gold. It gives you so much access to games, movies and more, plus you can get even more deals with it. I love a deal on top of a deal.

Of course buying a bundle gets you the bundle, plus the free game and right now the complete bundle is on sale for $699.95, with a regular price of $749.95. You’ll basically get three games with it instead of two.

Also, you’ll get free shipping, which is a sweet bonus on top of these deals!

(PS4 & Xbox One) Best Buy Canada: WWE 2k15 Hulkamania Edition Pre-Order – Just $70 + Free Shipping!

Posted by on August 10, 2014 at 11:30 PM

(PS4 & Xbox One) Best Buy Canada: WWE 2k15 Hulkamania Edition Pre Order   Just $70 + Free Shipping!

Negativity and Hulkamania: two things that don’t go together! Luckily, you can pre-order WWE 2k15 Hulkamnia edition on PS4 or Xbox One for just $69.99 at Best Buy. It’s set to release on October 28th 2014.

First of all, let me start off by saying that you should not wait to pre-order. Best Buy lists this game at a regular price of $69.99 but everywhere else (i.e. Amazon and EB Games), it’s $109.99, which puts this deal at close to a 40% discount in comparison. It’s even already sold out at Future Shop, where it was available for $69.99 as well!

Plus, the vast majority of PlayStation and Xbox One games tend to retail for $69.99, so the fact that this limited edition is at the same price is definitely pretty awesome, especially since the regular edition of this game is retailing for that same exact price right now, but without all of the following bonus features that the Hulkamania edition has:

  • Collective art card personally autographed by Hulk Hogan
  • Funko “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan vinyl figure
  • Authentic piece of ring canvas from Hulk Hogan’s Monday Night Raw appearance on March 10, 2014 in Memphis, TN
  • Premium packaging

In this edition of the game, players are also granted access to two exclusive characters: Hulk Hogan and “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan. It’s also a game that can either be played alone as singleplayer or in a multiplayer mode as it’s in a professional wresting fighting genre. Even cooler is that this latest instalment will focus on a historical timeline of past WWE rivalries, which die hard WWE fans are sure to enjoy. On the same vein, I’m sure just about anyone could enjoy the storyline as well in order to learn more about the history of the WWE, even though it’s fake! (PS4 & Xbox One) Best Buy Canada: WWE 2k15 Hulkamania Edition Pre Order   Just $70 + Free Shipping!

I have to admit that I’m not the biggest Hulk Hogan fan but this is definitely a deal I’ll be taking advantage of as soon as possible before it sells out. I’m certain that my hubby will enjoy playing, especially with the Hulk Hogan character.

Fun fact: did you know that Hulkamnia was started after Hulk Hogan won the 1984 edition of Championship Wrestling? That was 30 years ago! Even crazier is that from 2005 to 2007, Hulk Hogan made a comeback, during which he was in his 50′s!

Dell Canada: Watch Dogs – Now $58 (PS4/ Xbox)

Posted by on June 2, 2014 at 5:30 PM

Dell Canada: Watch Dogs   Now $58 (PS4/ Xbox)

*Gasp*! Watch Dogs just came out and yet it’s already on sale at Dell Canada! This is particularly shocking because newly released games can usually only be had at their full regular price of $69.99 and yet you can get this action-adventure Ubisoft game for just $57.99.

Despite the fact that Dell is showing this game as being from $59.99 with a current discount of $2, this is actually the lowest price available right now as all of the other major competitors like Best Buy, Amazon and Future Shop all have it for close to $69.99.

Very similar to Grand Theft Auto, it’s a single-player game play that focuses on the story of a hacker who can manipulate the city by gaining access to surveillance cameras, controlling trains, stealing banking information etc. The player has to walk or drive around the city, performing a variety of missions with the goal of avenging the main character’s niece, which can either be played in antagonism of the law or by following the rules.

Overall, Watch Dogs has already generated a tremendous amount of positive reviews, which have praised the cleverly-designed missions and action graphics. In fact, even GameSpot has given it a rating of 8 out of 10, while IGN rated it 7.5 out of 10. These may not be full ratings of 10 out of 10 but they are still good enough to make me want to try this game. I’m particularly excited about the possibility of hacking the city and going against the law. Plus, Ubisoft also has a really good track record for created enthralling games with notable titles such as Assassin’s Creed, Batman, Far Cry, Just Dance, Prince of Persia, Rayman, Resident Evil 4, and many others. In fact, they have also produced more than 30 Tom Clancy games like Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six and Splinter Cell, with numerous instalments of each.

Father’s Day is coming up quick but it isn’t just a special occasion for your own father as Watch Dogs could make a great gift for a spouse who has just become a new daddy. Dell Canada: Watch Dogs   Now $58 (PS4/ Xbox)  But hurry because this awesome deal expires soon and you won’t even have to pay shipping fees as Dell always offers free shipping.

What about you Moosers? Would you pick to play for or against the law?

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

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

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

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 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!)
