Trying to add some heft to your game collection in anticipation of the Xbox One’s impending release? Right now, the Microsoft Store is offering a preorder promotion on Xbox One titles (as well as Xbox 360 releases). Until the Xbox One’s launch on Nov. 22, you’ll get a bonus $10 Xbox gift card digital code to add to your Xbox account. This promo makes a great way to add money to your account when it converts from points to dollars. You’ll get the code around 10 days after the Xbox One ships. The one caveat: after a game comes out, the deal no longer works.
If you like bargain bins, GameFly’s giving you the online analog with its October Used Games Blowout Sale. Save on pre-owned Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii games. Unfortunately for shoppers, sales are brisk, so don’t be surprised (or too disappointed) if you click through to find a title is newly out of stock.
In about two weeks, Football Manager 2014 releases, but the closed beta is live now. If you preorder the Steam key, not only will you get access to the beta, but Green Man Gaming will also drop the price from $50 to $37.50 with a 25 percent off coupon code, saving you $12.50.
