Week of Feb 27 – Mar 5 Round-up

posted in: News | 0

This week’s image is from Limbo which gets a re-release on PlayStation 4 earlier this week. It’s one of my favorite XBLA releases and certainly a classic of the the last generation in my books. I highly recommend it if you haven’t played it before.

Please Welcome 2015’s Newest MSRP: $74.99

If you haven’t heard, a large number of upcoming releases are now listed at $74.99 across all major retailers including Amazon.ca, BestBuy, EB Games and FutureShop.

It was just last year that we moved from $59.99 to $69.99 and I’m still not used to seeing that $69.99 price tag on games.

How will this affect your purchasing decisions? For me, it means I’ll be waiting a little longer for games to hit my price point. The annual E3 promotions by retailers like Amazon.ca, BestBuy and Futureshop will help ease the pain on “must have on day one” titles but the usual 33% discount off a $74.99 MSRP results in a $50.24 price tag.

That was a $10 discount two years ago.

And if you thought last year’s Black Friday and Boxing Day promotions were dire, I suggest you brace yourself for the worst.

You Bought stuff? Claim Your $20

Long story short: if you bought any electronics between 1999 and 2002, you can claim $20 from this $80 million class action suit that nailed DRAM manufacturers for price fixing. No proof of purchase required for the $20 but if you have proof of purchase from that time period, you may be entitled to more.

It takes less than 3 minutes to file your claim.
