Solid hardware deals seem scarcer than usual this week, but there are plenty of game download deals to make up for that—especially at Amazon.
Let's see... right now, the e-tailer is selling Deus Ex: Human Revolution for $10.19 and The Darkness II for $24.99. The former has been out for longer than the latter, but they're both good games, and they're more than worth the money at those prices.
Next up is the Rockstar Classics collection, which includes Bully, GTA: San Andreas, GTA: Vice City, Max Payne 2, and Midnight Club 2, all for only $14.99. That's about 45 bucks off the normal list price for some excellent classic games.
And last, but not least, Amazon is running a Farewell to February sale with more discounted games than I can list here (95 in total, spread out across five pages). I can see The Witcher 2 for $14.99, Mirror's Edge for $4.99, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood for $7.49, but there are many, many more.
Our Canadian friends can't partake in these deals, unfortunately. They can, however, peruse NCIX's Sensational Savings Event. I'm seeing a handful of deals on hard drives and solid-state drives, like Seagate's Barracuda LP 2TB for $109.99 and Kingston's SSDNow V200 128GB for $125.99. Not bad at all.
