Update: Steam’s Summer Sale is just around the corner (rumor to be July 11 at 10am Pacific). BioShock Infinite Season Pass is now available at GMG for only $21 after coupon code GMG30-LY2G6-UKDYY (yup its a Steam key).
On May 31st GameFly launched their own “Digital Summer Sale” (preempting the Steam Summer sale of course) with new deals being refreshed every 24 hours running from the 31st to June 6th. BioShock Infinite, for instance, was dropped down to over 53% off. Use coupon GFDJUN20 for all Gamefly titles to get another 20% off.
Today GameFly resurrected BioShock Infinite and all 49 games and bundles to their previous discount prices, but to add icing on the cake, they now stack with a just-launched June 2013 Gamefly coupon code – giving you another 20% off the already discounted prices.
That makes the Triple-A title BioShock Infinite only $27.99 – the lowest price we’ve seen yet. For the math fans, that’s 53% off the MSRP only 3 months after its March 26th release date, on what many considered to be the frontrunner to 2013’s Game of the Year. [Editor's note: check the update on top, BioShock Infinite is now even cheaper at $24 for Steam version, for the next 18 hours as of writing.]
Seeing BioShock at that price will probably reminder a few gamers to avoid buying on release date – especially if you’re not keen on playing rightaway. The current PC download price trend shows clearly that if a game isn’t on sale at release date, a price slash is sure to happen within a week to a month – and if you wait about 3 months you can expect to see Triple-A titles below half price. This weekend GameFly is having one such 50%+ off sales you just have to check out.
Best of the Digital Summer Sale
BioShock Infinite (PC Download) — $27.99 at GameFly after coupon. Probably one of the best thus far for 2013. At $28, this is an excellent entertainment to dollar ratio you’re getting.
Crysis 3 (PC Download) — $23.99 at GameFly after coupon. Lowest we’ve seen yet for Crysis 3. If you need to stress test your new Haswell system, you might as well grab Crysis 3.
Dead Space 3 (PC Download) — $23.99 at GameFly after coupon. While review isn’t as strong for the 3rd installment to the series, this is still a decent FPS title for horror FPS fans to pick up. Activates on Origin.
Mass Effect Trilogy (PC Download) — $15.99 at GameFly after coupon. All three Mass Effect games plus their respective DLCs at only $16. Not bad. Activates on Origin.
Borderlands 1 + 2 Bundle (PC Download) — $15.99 at GameFly after coupon. Amazing price if you’ve never played either version of Borderlands 2 (plus, you get Borderlands 1 GOTY edition, which comes with all the previous DLCs). Activates on Steam.
The Walking Dead Game (PC Download) — $6.79 at GameFly after coupon. If you missed out on the latest Humble Bundle deal, at $6.79 this is still a decent price for all 5 episodes of The Walking Dead. Activates on Steam.
Hitman: Absolution (PC Download) — $4.79 at GameFly after coupon. Near lowest price we’ve seen for the latest installment to Hitman. While story isn’t as strong (in our opinion) vs the previous Hitman series, this is still an excellent addition to the IP. Activates on Steam.
Fallout: New Vegas (PC Download) — $3.19 at GameFly after coupon. Next best is $10 at GamersGate. This isn’t the ultimate version but at $3, its a great price if you just want to check the title out. Activates on Steam.
