This week's deals post is all over the map. I could attempt to weave it all together nicely, but that sounds like an awful lot of work, and my mind's stuck somewhere between yesterday's July 4th holiday and the approaching weekend. Bulleted lists it is, then. Let's start with a couple of gaming bundles.
Those Amazon bundles list "Steam" as the DRM, by the way. Looks like you get redeemable download codes for Valve's content distribution platform.
And now, this week's grab-bag of hardware deals.
The holiday in Canada was July 1, so it's business as usual today at NCIX. The retailer has a Wrangle the Savings sale this week with discounts on a wide range of hardware. Notable deals include Fractal Design's Define XL R2 chassis, which is 50% off at $100, and a Logitech bundle with a G710+ mechanical keyboard and G700 wireless mouse for $160.
