Amazon Gold Box Event; Great Deals Abound

June 17, 2010 Written by Max Murray

Amazon is known for having such great deals on video games; offering discounts on newly released games, and sometimes even giving you a $10 or $20 credit on a future video game when you purchase a select title from them. Today, their famous “Gold Box” event has spread the ‘great-deal’ love to PlayStation 3 fans everywhere with a day filled with Sony deals.


Starting early this morning and going until midnight, their “Deal of the Day” is Battlefield: Bad Company 2 for an unbeatable price of $39.98. This is a savings of more than $15 from yesterday’s retail price.

Check out our review, and then head over to Amazon to pick this title up before time’s up!

Moreover, they spread other side deals throughout the day, only revealing them when the time comes. Here’s what’s we’ve got today:

  • 6:00 am PDT- Borderlands – $26.99 : EXPIRED
  • 10:00 am PDT- Afterglow Controller for PS3–  $14.99: Going on Right NOW. Get it here
  • 2:00 pm PDT- Unrevealed. Hint given: “Complete your Grand Theft Auto IV experience.”

(Most likely, this will be “Episodes from Liberty City,” and as Amazon’s normal price for it is $32.54, we could potentially see this for as low as $25.00)

  • 6:00 pm PDT- Unrevealed: Hint given: “Charge your PS3 controllers”

(This could be the PS3 Energizer Power & Play System (here), or one of the other dozens of items that do the same thing.)

For now, we’ll just have to wait until the other ones are revealed. We’ll keep you updated as further deals are announced.
