Crysis 3 just came out last week, but there are more big releases on the horizon—not least of all Irrational Games' BioShock Infinite, which is due out on March 26.
If you're planning on picking up the new BioShock, then you may want to head to Amazon. The e-tailer has it on pre-order for the usual $59.99, but it throws in $30 worth of credit for other titles published by 2K Games. Also, the pre-order includes the Industrial Revolution pack and BioShock Infinite: Mind in Revolt, a Kindle short story that sheds light on the game's setting. Sounds like a pretty solid deal to me.
Meanwhile, on the hardware side of things, Newegg has a promo code (EMCXVVM22) that shaves 10% off the price of desktop memory kits. For example, you can nab an 8GB Corsair DDR3-1600 dual-channel kit for $45.89 shipped instead of $50.99. That's handy, given that memory has gotten a little more expensive as of late.
Also, in case you missed our SSD deals earlier this week, you can still get Samsung's 840 Series drives at fairly low prices from Amazon. The 500GB 840 Series is available for $299.99, and the 250GB model will set you back only $166.23. Those prices work out to around 60 and 66 cents per gigabyte, respectively—very cheap by SSD standards.
North of the border, our Canadian readers can partake in NCIX's Bundle Up Savings sale. Among the items on offer: the 120GB version of the 840 Series for $98.99 CAD, and an 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 kit for $48.99 CAD.
