There are some excellent titles to choose from though, like Batman: Arkham CityGears of War 3 and Need for Speed: The Run all for $39.99 each.


Crysis Maximum Edition for $7.49

Amazon continues with their daily PC Download deals of very good games for under $10. Today they have Crysis Maximum Edition [Download] for $7.49. Clearly Amazon wants to give Steam a run for its money. Regardless of their reasoning, PC gamers are the clear winners here.

You should watch Sherlock on Netflix Streaming, but if you don’t have access, or if you really really need that Blu-ray quality, then here is Sherlock: Season One [Blu-ray] for you. You’re welcome.

12 Month Xbox 360 Live Subscription Gold Card for $39.99

Having a subscription to Xbox Live Gold is one of the necessary evils of owning an Xbox. You can mitigate the evil by never, EVER paying the full price tag of $59.99. Right now you can get a 12 Month Xbox 360 Live Subscription Gold Card for 33% off at Amazon. You don’t need to wait until your current subscription is up, when you enter the code, it will tack the 12 months onto the end of your current subscription. You can stack up to three years of service.


Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Collector’s Edition for $99.99

There are only a few games that buying the Collector’s Edition makes any sense, but Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is absolutely one of them. The game itself is worth $100 being that you could spend 200 hours playing it, and still have content left to burn. On top of that you get a frickin’ 12 inch dragon statue, an art book and a making of DVD. This is available for both Xbox 360 and PS3 (though you may want to hold off on the PS3 version since it has a nasty bug that still needs patching).


Xbox 360 Wired ControllerXbox 360 Wired Controller for $27.99

“Eww, wired controller”, and sure, I agree, except that you don’t want this Xbox 360 Wired Controller for your Xbox 360, you actually want it for your PC! With so many console games getting excellent PC ports, you really need to have a dedicated PC gamepad, and you won’t do better than this one. Dead Space 2 has been as low at $5 on PC, and you don’t want to use a mouse and keyboard for that, do you? How about Deus Ex: Human Revolution being as cheap as $9.99 recently? Again: gamepad.
