Amazon, purveyor of good merchandise at cheap prices, has made an announcement gamers love to hear. June 25, 2013, is an Amazon Gold Box video game deal day. The Deal of the Day and Lightning Deals all involve consoles, games and accessories, which means many of us will probably be at least $30 poorer by the end of the day. Though, considering what this Amazon Gold Box Deal of the Day is, some people may even be down $250.
The starting Amazon Gold Box deal is a 320GB PS3 bundle for $250. It’s the special edition, Uncharted 3 bundle that gives you a PS3 Slim with a 320GB hard drive, a copy of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, a DualShock 3 controller and 30 days of PlayStation Plus. Normally, it’s $299.99 for this bundle. Considering the 250GB Uncharted 3 Game of the Year Edition bundle is the same price and only comes with a 250GB hard drive system and year of PlayStation Plus, I’d say this bigger bundle is a better deal. That’s for you to decide though, let’s move on to the Lightning Deals.
As usual, Amazon Gold Box Lightning Deals only last for about an hour, and go on throughout the day. There are 10 scheduled for today, with a handful already expired, so let’s go quickly through what you could get.
- 12am PST: 007 Legends (Wii U) – $14.99
- 6am PST: Call of Duty: Black Ops II Hardened Edition (PS3) – $59.99
- 7am PST: Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes (Wii) – $9.99
- 10am PST: “Meet Zombies on this tropical island” – Dead Island: Riptide (PS3, Xbox 360)
- 12pm PST: “Hit this deal out of the park!” – Probably MLB 13: The Show (PS3)
- 2pm PST: “Hakuoki: Warriors of the Shinsengumi for the PSP” – Hakuoki: Warriors of the Shinsengumi (PSP)
- 3pm PST: “Ni No Kuni is a heart-warming tale of a young boy named Oliver….” – Ni no Kuni (PS3)
- 5pm PST: “Totally immerse yourself and focus on the task at hand with this…” – No idea, but I’m guessing its a headset
- 7pm PST: “Bring your summer vacation gaming to a new level!” – No idea what this could be. Perhaps a Vita deal?
- 9pm PST: “Fight aliens” – Practically every video game ever. Which is to say, I have no clue what game this is referring to.
I say, come by at 3pm. Ni no Kuni will probably be the best game deal all day. Unless the 7pm deal is a reduced Vita or maybe 3DS.
