RPG Deals 4/12 – 4/18

Toys R Us – buy 1 DS game get $5 off another DS game.

GameStop has a used copy of Fable 2 for $40. Make sure to check those copies. A lot of GameStops won’t do it for you.

None of this mattered today. No place was open. I guess that means it’s time to shop online.

One of the neat things Amazon.com did recently was make Xbox Live games available to buy directly on their site for actual money. You have probably seen these cards over at places like Target or Wal-Mart, but for the most part there are not many other retailers carrying them. Amazon has taken it a step up by allowing you to download the code instantly, as opposed to mailing the card to you. Sadly, the cost of the code will not reflect the Xbox Live Deal of the Week (by the way, this is the last day to get Penny Arcade: On the Rain-Slicked Precipice of Darkness Episode 1 for half price), but Amazon will have their own deals going on with those titles. I think this is neat, and another little victory for digital distribution.

Keep checking out Amazon’s Deal of the Day as well. Last week Star Ocean: The Last Hope was $40.

Happy Hunting.

Disclaimer: Deals may not be available in all stores. Prices in each store may differ. You can try different stores to mitigate this, and always ask if a store has it before writing them off. You might be able to get a raincheck. A lot of these deals are in-store only, except where specified.
