If like me you missed Far Cry 3 on sale for $19.99 during Day One of the Xbox Live Ultimate Game Sale don’t kick yourself too hard. Right now both Best Buy and Amazon are selling the 360 version of Far Cry 3 for $19.99! The digital version has gone back to it’s $59.99 price on the Xbox Live store, while new copies are currently selling for $59.99 at GameStop and other retailers (it’s $39.99 used right now at GameStop).
I would’ve greatly preferred the digital version (I HATE physical media, I want all my games available to play at any time on my Xbox’s hard drive) but the disc version is still a steal at $20.
Today The Witcher 2 is on sale for $9.99 through the Xbox Live Ultimate Game Sale and Forza Horizon is a bargain at $14.99. Keep your eye on Major Nelson’s blog as more AAA titles will be on sale this week including the recent GOTY candidate, Bioshock Infinite!
I ordered my copy of Far Cry 3 for in store pick up at Best Buy via their website. While I was in the store I noticed Far Cry 3 is still priced at $59.99. I’m not sure if the sale price would take effect in the store, but if you want to save yourself the hassle I’d recommend ordering online for in store pick up. It only took about 15 minutes to receive the e-mail that it was ready for pick up (ensure it’s in stock at the store first, otherwise it’d have to be shipped there). Or just order Amazon if you prefer.
I’ve just had bad experiences with Best Buy and sale prices…Like a few years ago when there was a sign in store advertising FIFA World Cup 2010 for something like $15 but when I got to the register they insisted the sale was over and no such sign existed in the store (after they went and saw for themselves I eventually got the advertised price).
