With the launch of the much anticipated PlayStation 4 (PS4) next-gen console due on the 29th of November in Australia, there are also big discussions underway between gamers about the PS4 launch titles that will accompany the console’s release. I’ve gone and done a bit of digging to see where the best deals are right now on pre-ordering some of these titles.
Note, all prices below include shipping to Oz. Also, prices can fluctuate daily, so these are the cheapest offers I could find at the time of writing which may not reflect the best prices available by the time you read this. However, it gives you a pretty good reference to start off with.
1. WOW HD (UK – $2 shipping per item to Australia)
Although I’ve read some mixed reviews from customers about WOW HD (formerly CD-WOW), they do appear to have a large number of titles on pre-order at the best prices. First up is Killzone Shadow Fall which is the latest instalment in the massively successful Killzone franchise by Guerilla Games, developed exclusively for the PS4 gaming console. Right now WOW HD are charging $77.16 for the game. They also have Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag on offer for $72.36. The Special Edition includes additional unlockable in-game content such as “Sacrificed Secrets” (where your aim is to recover Captain Drake’s lost treasures, including golden flintlocks and cutlass as you explore the island of Sacrifices) and “Captain Kenway’s Legacy” (with additional single and multiplayer items).
Another immensely popular game is Call of Duty: Ghosts which you can pre-order from WOW HD who narrowly pipped Ozgameshop to the best-deal-post by $2 with a price of $77.96. In the genre of sporting games, they’ve got FIFA 14 as well as NBA Live 14 on PS4 both priced at $72.36.
2. OZGAMESHOP (UK – free shipping to Australia)
Battlefield 4 on PS4 is going for $71.99 at Ozgameshop.com, which is a visually stunning game and right up there with Killzone when it comes to titles able to show off your next-gen console’s performance properly to family and friends. They also have Angry Birds Star Wars for $45.99 which is reportedly a game that’s a good fit on PS4 due the multiple control options available when using the DualShock 4 – in particular its central touchpad.
