Merry Christmas everyone! I have somewhere to be today and I’m sure you do too, so let’s make this quick. The Amazon Gold Box for December 25, 2012 is filled with video game deals. This could be considered both cruel and kind, because it means access to awesome deals on a day when most of us are too busy to actually shop. What a shame. Still, we’ll go through what’s available and maybe tonight you can go back and buy something.
First, the Amazon Gold Box holds the site’s Deals of the Day. They’re all Disney games. You can get Just Dance: Disney Party (Wii, Xbox 360) for $15.99 instead of $29.99 all day. The other deal is Disney Epic Mickey 2. The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two are $19.99 each. The 3DS and Wii versions are more expensive, with Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion and Epic Mickey 2 being $25 on those platforms.
Now, let’s move quickly to the Amazon Gold Box Lightning Deals. There are 15 of them, which is kinda unfair considering our busy schedules.
