Christmas Time Means Sales Time
As we approach the end of the year it is getting close to that magical time again. The time of much joy and excitement for all ages. No I am not talking about Christmas I am talking about sales time! All the big end-of-year sales kick off over the next few days (some have already started) so we thought we would point out which ones to keep an eye on.
Steam Sales – 22nd December (probably the 23rd in Australia)
The granddaddy of digital games sales and probably still the best. No more daily specials means that planning on what you want to buy is much easier.
Ubisoft Sales – On now
Some nice selections at good prices for fans of Ubisoft’s games. Also a great way to pick up Ubi related collectables at a good price. The store is even in AUD which is nice as there is no nasty checkout surprises.
EA Origin Sales – On now
The EA sales are good but not great. Some solid deals available but certainly not better than elsewhere. Only check it out if you are after a specific EA title.
Greenmangaming – On now
Great pricing on heaps of PC titles. Well worth checking out as they quite often beat the Steam sale price. What’s more if you visit Greenmangaming by clicking a link on our site any purchase you make will help to keep us running. So do us a favour and check them out.
Xbox Live – 22nd December
These console sales have improved over the last few years to the point where they are actually selling games at some really good prices. Certainly one to keep an eye on if you are looking at picking up any Xbox games.
PSN – ???
The PSN has been running a 12 deals of Christmas sale for this month but you can probably expect a new, more traditional sale to begin in the next few days. Just like Xbox, the PSN sales are starting to host some attractive bargains so it is worth watching out for.
So there you have it. Hopefully this little guide can help you all grab a great game at a better price. After all it is the season for gaming (or something like that.)
