Amazon Starts Holiday Rush By Discounting The Best

Ten dollars may not seem like much of a savings, but it starts to pile up if you plan on making multiple purchases.

And considering the fact that Amazon has discounted many of the very best games of the fourth quarter - indeed, some are the best of the year - you should definitely take advantage of these relatively minor sales. If you mosey on over to Amazon, you will find some of the biggest titles of 2009 knocked down to $49.99 and for all you PlayStation 3 owners out there, three of the games are PS3 exclusives. Here's the list of new titles that now boast the retail price tag from last generation:

  • Borderlands
  • Brütal Legend
  • Demon's Souls
  • Tekken 6
  • Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time
  • Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

It doesn't get much better than the games shown here. Oh, and you can also nab Halo 3: ODST for only $47.99 so there's more than enough incentive to pounce on this opportunity. After all, most of you out there are gonna want to play at least a few of these games and although many of you already have, who has the time to play 'em all immediately? And besides, even if you're already up-to-date, we're willing to bet you know someone who might appreciate a nice holiday gift...and he or she doesn't need to know you got it on sale.

thats tough for any pc gamer. but i will be honest with you, the devs said, the pc games run more in a strategic way while the console games run as an action game. what do you prefer.

another bit of advice my buddy who is a huge pc gamer/ and shop owner, just bought a ps3 and is loving it so much, he is getting dragon age for the PS3.

on topic: this is a great deal i really wish this happened a week ago then i mght actually own borderlands.

Wow, If I could have waited just a bit longer I could have got a great deal on BL's, U2, DS's, and Tekken 6. I still think all 4 I mentioned are worth my $60. Getting R&C for Xmas so that's a deal I won't miss.

you can get Ratchet even cheaper ( from Amazon) if you enter coupon code ratchet3. that's a extra five bucks off. $44.95 for Ratchet is great deal for a great game.

Having just recently played Halo 3 (single player only, because I refuse to pay MS to play online), I'll have no problem passing up on the Halo 3: ODST deal.

You mean you don't want a full priced Chief-less re-skin that was originally an expansion pack that never should have retailed for more than 30 bones?

You got it my Playfire friend. I was shocked at how dull and pedestrian Halo 3 was. It felt like a clone of the first game. No way I'm even interested in spending time on ODST, never mind money.

no its not worth the 60 bucks but ODST is NOTHING! like halo 3.
it feels like a completley different game, its more like war and less sunshine lollipops and rainbows hit the tops.
one thing i could never understand about halo 3, your at war for fu**s sake and its sunny, theres birds singing, are you at war, or in heaven?
theres no atmosphere in that game what so ever.

Have Demon's Souls, don't want Brutal Legends (I'm sure it is good just not my thing), don't really like the look of Borderlands.

Now, I can only really afford one game, maybe two, so I am torn between the three remaining and COD:MW2 simply because all my buddies that now live 200 miles away in the bay area are going to be getting it and it's really the only interaction we have except the occasional weekend I make it down. What am I to do?

Pretty tight, I'm deciding on either Uncharted 2 or Dragon Age right now. I suppose after shipping though U2 wouldn't be too far off just running to the store and picking it up. Hmmm.

yeah uncharted 2 is the way to go...

ill be honest though im playing through dragon age, and i must say bio ware has done a fantastic job! im already about 6 hours in and im loving every minute of it. the leveling is simple enough to make it quick and to the point but deep enough to keep eve the big rpg fans happy in my opinion!

This is great! Saturday, I was feeling a lil' buyer's remorse for picking Borderlands as my free game when I did the Best Buy "By 2, Get 1 free" deal. So I exchanged Borderlands for NBA 2k10.

I figured I would have enough shooters when CoD: MW2 comes out and that Borderlands would probably go on sell pretty soon. And low-and-behold, Amazon puts it on sell the following week. Good deal. I may get Brutal Legend instead though, lol.
