With most of the Australia Day Weekend sales now over, if you’re looking for a bargain online and happen to be a console gamer – then you’re in luck. There are still plenty of deals on worth checking out, particularly with all the January sales happening which are helping drive prices down as gaming retailers compete to shift stock and attract customers.
A) Assassins Creed Heritage Collection (PS3) shipped for $47.99 at Ozgameshop
First up is this Heritage Collection version of Assassins Creed which contains all five games in the series: Assassin’s Creed; Assassin’s Creed II (Game of the Year Edition); Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood; Assassin’s Creed Revelations; and Assassin’s Creed III.
According to my price estimates on those last two games, you’re very likely to end up paying $50 just for them. So paying $47.99 and then getting the other three games on top is a great offer.
Staying with PS3 games, the following three deals were also worth mentioning. Amazon UK have the standard edition of Batman: Arkham Origins going for $46.60 (delivered) which is good value considering that the next best offer is $54.99 from Ozgameshop with prices going all the way up to $93.95 from Harvey Norman (both inclusive of shipping).
Or if you’re looking to get your hands on the latest title from the COD series, The Game Collection have “Ghosts” on PS3 available for the shipping-included price of approximately $51.10 (based on the exchange rate at the time the deal was posted). Although Ozgameshop are only charging a few dollars more, this is still the best price available and considerably lower than the average market price which appears to be in the region of $65 – $70 for this game.
Lastly, the most competitive offer right now on Lost Planet 3 is from Ozgameshop for $23.99 with delivery. Whilst Play-Asia aren’t far behind with their asking price of $26 for this game, all other stores appear to be charging at least $30 – $35 plus for it.
C) Injustice: Gods Among Us on Wii U shipped for $14.99 from Ozgameshop
You’ll have a pretty hard time trying to top Ozgameshop’s current offer on the Wii U version of Injustice: Gods Among Us. They’ve got it on sale for the shipped price of just $14.99 where as other online retailers like EB Games and Video Ezy are charging $65 or more with postage fees. You can probably find this game for under $30 if you shop around, but as for under $20…well, Ozgameshop look like they’re on their own with this one.
