The hit August release Final Fantasy: A Realm Reborn is back on sale after a nearly 3 week long sale freeze. In an effort to dodge a total SimCity like disaster, Square Enix hit the pause button on sales limiting the population, while it cranked out additional server space. Well, this week the game is back on sale for $29.99, but Green Man Gaming has a solid 25% off coupon which drops the Realm’s price down to $22.50 – the lowest price ever seen.
FFXIV: AAR PS3 players today found out that they can upgrade to the PS4 version for free (though they’d lose access to their PS3 version). For the PC gamers though, things are business as usual (with higher resolution graphics and frame rates. Mmm….)
This week marks the release of what will probably be the hottest selling game of the year: Grand Theft Auto V. GTA V hit the shelves Tuesday for the Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles and for a very limited time you snag the hit game for only $48 at ToysRUs. Not a bad deal at all for two-day-old release.
If you need a fresh copy of all things BioShock – Amazon has a hot bundle this week. Twenty bucks gets you all three games: BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite for $19.99. All activate on Steam and you’re getting individual Steam key too.
