Deal of the week: Games, games, games—and some hardware, too


The Steam Summer Sale has been running all week, slowly impoverishing PC gamers everywhere. There are still some great deals to be found among today's picks, including:

  • Alan Wake - $7.49
  • Amnesia: The Dark Descent - $4.99
  • Civilization V - $7.49
  • Crysis 2 - $11.99
  • Deus Ex: Human Revolution - $7.49
  • Driver San Francisco - $7.49

Not one to be one-upped, Amazon also has a number of games on sale on its digital distribution platform. Those include several titles that either cost more on Steam or aren't available on Valve's service at all:

Of course, the flood of game bargains doesn't mean there are no hardware deals to be found. Newegg, for one, is letting folks shave 10% off desktop memory modules using the promo code EMCNCHN45. You can grab an 8GB Corsair ValueSelect DDR3-1333 dual-channel kit for $37.79 with free shipping instead of $41.99. Just enter "EMCNCHN45" (without the quotes) on the checkout page.

Similarly, Newegg has a promo code that takes $50 off select laptops. Eligible systems include Sony's Vaio SVT13114GXS ultrabook, which you can grab for $799.99 with free shipping instead of $849.99. The system has a 13.3" display, a 1.7GHz Ivy Bridge processor, 4GB of RAM, a 32GB solid-state drive, and a 500GB mechanical hard drive. The laptop is 0.71" thick and weighs in at 3.54 lbs.

North of the border, NCIX has a sale of its own underway: the Christmas in July Sale. Notable bargains there include an 8GB kit of Kingston HyperX DDR3-1600 memory, which is available for $39.99 CAD, and OCZ's 120GB Agility 3 solid-state drive, which you can grab for $89.99 CAD after a $10 mail-in rebate.
