Cyber Monday 2013 is coming soon, and some people are probably looking for the best Xbox One and PS4 games. Well, the best advice is to go shopping now, not on Monday.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, our Black Friday 2013 shopping guide can help you find the best deals. Even if you’re only looking for PS4 games like Call Of Duty: Ghosts, I’d check out the article.
The term Cyber Monday was coined in 2005, back when “Numa Numa” was the best YouTube video (now we have exploding whales).
But internet only heavyweights like Amazon.com and NewEgg.com have been offering Black Friday deals practically all month long, and the focus will still be on Friday, not Cyber Monday 2013. Some deals even start on Black Friday and continue through until next week, so Cyber Monday is slowly becoming irrelevant.
This Black Friday actually started on Thanksgiving Day, and 2013 focused on deals for phones, TVs, and games. But in the past, there were 229 percent (on average) more gaming deals on Thanksgiving and Black Friday rather than on Cyber Monday. For example, Call of Duty: Ghosts can be found for $35 at Walmart, and Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag and GTA 5 are also on sale.
But people looking for good Cyber Monday 2013 deals probably just want to avoid wading into the chaos that is known as Black Friday. Amazon.com has a CoD: Ghosts deal, as well, but they’re also offering Grand Theft Auto 5 and Batman: Arkham Origins for $34 each. FIFA 14, Madden 25, and Battlefield 4 are even cheaper at $25.
Even the Microsoft Store is getting into the act, with Call of Duty: Ghosts for the Xbox One being sold for $50. Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is $34, and Skylanders Swap Force Starter Pack can be nabbed for the kiddies for $39.
PC gamers can also rejoice on both Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2013 since pretty much all the sales last several days. For example, Steam’s Autumn sale lasts several days, but you still have to be on your toes. Daily Deals are usually available for one or two days, while Flash Sales last for eight hours. The best deals offering 80 percent discounts tend to be on lesser known games, but even Skyrim and Bioshock were discounted heavily (although I should note I saw a better deal on Amazon.com for Bioshock Infinite earlier this week).
EA’s Origin outlet, which is also digital download only like Steam, is offering some great deals on a variety of big name titles for just today:
Battlefield 4 — $29.99 (Reg $59.99)
Sim City — $19.99 (Reg $39.99)
FIFA 14 — $27.99 (Reg $39.99)
Need For Speed: Rivals — $34.99 (Reg $49.99)
The Sims 3: Starter Pack — $14.99 (Reg $29.99)
Crysis 3 — $11.99 (Reg $29.99)
Mass Effect Trilogy — $15.99 (Reg $39.99)
Dead Space 3 — $11.99 (Reg $29.99)
Command & Conquer: Ultimate Collection — $7.99 (Reg $19.99)
Dragon Age II— $7.99 (Reg $19.99)
So now that you know the best Black Friday 2013 PS4 and Xbox One games deals are today, will you even bother waiting for Cyber Monday 2013?
