This past Tuesday’s release of Madden NFL 25 makes the quarter century mark for the Madden series. It’s available now on the Xbox 360 and PS3 for $59.99, but rather than pay full price, you can use two stacking coupon codes at GameStop and drop to $49.99 with free shipping (shipping normally $3.50). If you’ve preordered the Xbox ONE and you’re the impatient type, there’s an incentive to buy for the Xbox 360. When the Xbox ONE releases, both Amazon and GameStop will allow you to trade in your Xbox 360 copy of Madden for the graphically superior Xbox ONE version for only $9.99 extra (vs. buying a whole new copy for $59.99).
If you’re looking to load up ye old Steam library, Amazon is running a “Digital Games Late Summer Sale”. Hundreds of PC and Mac downloads across a wide range of DRMs are on sale with discounts as high as 90% off. The sale began today, August 29th, and will run through Sunday, September 8th.
Sep. 3: Total War: Rome II + Greek States Culture Pack DLC (PC Download) — $47.99 at Green Man Gaming. Elsewhere $60. The Greek States Culture Pack allows you begin the campaign as Epirus, Athens, or everyone’s favorite… Sparta.
Last Tuesday’s release: Madden NFL 25 (Xbox 360, PS3) — $49.99 at GameStop after coupon. Elsewhere $60. For as many sequels as there are to contend with, this still garners a solid 81/100 Metascore. Not too shabby.
