Week of May 1 – 7 Round-up

posted in: News | 224

The standalone expansion for Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is coming out next week. And I just loved this screenshot for the Nazi fleeing from bats and the other’s disdain for that poor rat. I loved Wolfenstein: The New Order so I’ll definitely pick up The Old Blood. It’s just a matter of when.

$79.99 Games Are Definitely a Reality

Just in case you didn’t believe new releases were going to $79.99 back in March, Electronic Arts and Activision have made it loud and clear that new titles will be $79.99. Both Star Wars: Battlefront and Call of Duty: Black Ops III is $79.99 across retail and digital stores.

It’s too bad we no longer get Canadian NPD numbers because I would really like to know how these prices will affect sales figures of these high profile titles.

6 Year Anniversary Giveaway

I nearly forgot about this. Today is the sixth anniversary of GameDealsCanada! To celebrate, here’sΒ a $50 Amazon.ca Gift Card giveaway.

All you have to do is leave a comment below and a random winner will be unveiled on next week’s news post. Good luck!

  • Mike

    Man, I love your site.[Just wish there were more, and better, deals. Seriously. Most of the “deals” I see are places jacking up the price $20 and then offering $10 off. Wow! But hey, that’s not your fault.] Keep up the good work!

  • Thomas C

    Thank you for the awesome deal notifications!

  • Bryan

    Congrats on 6 years!

  • KC2033

    Wow 6 years! keep up the awesome work.

  • Mathieu Soucy

    Hello

  • Darklol

    You guys rock ! Keep the good work.

  • Veraboyz Gaming

    Love you guys!!! actually have helped me save so much money in the past! couldnt have done it without your help!

  • Brad

    Eh?

  • Matt Neville

    You are a gentleman and a scholar!

  • Navster15

    You guys have saved me so much money over the years. Here’s hoping for another 6 years!

  • Matt Skinner

    Thanks for all the work you put in, congratulations on 6 years!

  • Aqil D.

    Thanks for doing this. Its been a huge help over the past year after purchasing a PS4, Wii U and a 3DS. I’ve easily saved over 200$ thanks to this.

  • T Hosking

    Happy anniversary. If i win the gift certificate, I love you long time. Well love you longer time cause you’re pretty awesome anyway.

  • Rick Bertuzzi

    Appreciate the service you provide and congrats on the 6 year anniversary!

  • James Hillinger

    Thank you for keeping us up to date!

  • Eric

    Qam sharing

  • Nicole C.

    Congrats on your anniversary!

    I’m pretty sure it’s cheaper to just buy games in the US at this point. That $79.99 price tag is awful.

  • Harrison Funnell

    I hope I win the gift card:D congrats on 6 years!

  • g_comtois

    Thanks guys, I saw great deal from U, that help me save a lot off $$$

  • Ronnie Corporon

    Thanks for all the hard work!

  • David Burns

    I usually comment via Twitter, and enjoy your feed. I don’t even know how much money you have saved me, but thank you. Fingers crossed for the $50. As an aside, the $80 price tag is ridiculous. I will not buy games at full price if they’re $70-80. No pre orders for me. I only hope more do the same and send a message to EA et al.

  • Vie Bht

    I hope they’ll be making adjustments to that price tag sooner rather than later.

  • loneprodigy

    Congrats.

  • Alex Boudreau-Audet

    Long live to Game Deals Canada and congratulations for the first 6 years! πŸ˜‰

  • Ben Horne

    Prices are ridiculous, this just means no more impulse buying, but rather carefully choosing what I want and not buying every single game that looks fun

  • Zim Zen

    Peasant me needs this gift card XD

  • Warren Gordon

    Would love to win!! πŸ™‚

  • Michael Surya

    Thank you for giving me great deals for 6 years!

  • Liz

    Bleh I’m wondering if it’s just these two games that are going to be higher priced as the new lego game is a fair price.

  • Andre P.

    Thanks for all the awesome work you do

  • Christopher Summerfield

    6 years? I wish I’d have found you guys sooner!

  • briancotie

    Congratulations on 6 years!

  • Raphael Cuyugan

    With that price tag, it’s much better now to buy them in the US when you’re there. They even have frequent price drops there too. Thanks Harper. ????

  • Vanouchou

    Thanks for the contest!
    With the new Canadian price, I think I’ll buy my games in France and ask a friend to ship it to Canada. The first week games are sold 45€, so with shipping it’ll cost me 65$ instead of 90$ (79,99$+taxes) or I’ll buy it on the European ps store…

  • Nirvana

    I have recommended this site to everyone I know. Thanks for all your work.

  • Colin Ayin

    Great contest guys. Love the site and the commitment to saving money for the gaming community

  • Jean-Philippe Boucher

  • Carl segin

    Thanks for all the deals!

  • ScottieMick

    Happy 6th!!

  • Jonathan Laberge

    80$ for a game?? no way. I will wait until @gamedealscanada shows the titles I want on sale. EA is so bad, they already make their used games almost useless with online disabled. Not sure if they realize.. a PS4 will then cost about the same as 5 games.. that’s ridiculous. ~~~also ~~~ would love that 50$ πŸ™‚

  • Mike Tompson

    I have no shame…. I’m only here for the $50

  • Nathan Hudson

    Thanks for the help posting deals up North =^^=

  • RLPV

    Happy 6th anniversary! I check each week for great info on deals. Keep up the great work.

  • Cirion.

    Happy 6th anniversary

  • Hugo Girard

    Congratulations on your 6th anniversary

  • Amkof

    $80 is just terrible news, back to pc gaming and waiting for big price drops for me.

  • Brian Potter

    Congratulations on your sixth anniversary

  • Man, $80 plus tax plus seasons passes, we’re looking at $120+ for new games now.

    With everything needing patches and fixes, maybe waiting a little while for them to drop to $40 isn’t such a bad idea.

  • Steve Rogers

    Thanks to you i have saved so much money, thank you so much:) For more years to come for Game deals canada

  • emgeejay

    Thanks for the updates!

  • Cory Callow

  • 6 years already wow

  • Chris Neves

    Happy 6th Anniversary! The website has been helpful to roundup all the deals across stores even if they have been poor as of late and BOO for $79.99 price tags

  • David Cheung

    Happy 6th anniversary!

  • Camil Bouzidi

    This is getting insane. Thanks to guys like you we hopefully won’t have to buy games at full price. BTW Witcher 3 is 54$ if you preorder it digitally on Xbox One!

  • {JPM}

    6 years! I had no idea

  • Hadi Abu Al Hawa

    In those 6 years you’ve made me save a lot of money. Thank you and congratulations!

  • Mavrick

  • Achtius

    Happy Anniversary! Didn’t found out about this site until last year, and this site is all I use now.

  • Emir.Bala

    Really does suck seeing games being 80$ now…This just means I’ll have to wait for sales on games more often, but I guess it’s a good thing I follow you guys on Twitter lol.

  • Daryl Ledda

    I guess I’ll start catch up on my backlog while I wait for a good deals to come up

  • harpoonGill

    happy 6th!

  • Mathieu Blanchette

  • Aalvi Saleh

  • Paul

    Keep up the good work!

  • Chris

    Thanks for the heads up on so many deals! You’ve probably made me spend more than I otherwise would have, haha!

  • SickBoy

    Congrats on the six years!

    On game prices, I tweeted this in July about $70 games, after NPD tweeted some Canadian data:
    “Game prices up 16% for most titles in Canada. New console tie ratio down 11%. What an odd coincidence.”

    They responded in a pair of tweets:
    @IckBoy We have seen an increase in games price in Canada, but I’m not sure it’s a major factor.
    @IckBoy The US tie ratio is also down. The US decrease is even more significant, which is reflective of a more active digital download mkt

    So I would guess they might question whether it’s moved the meter much… but I think at $80, you’re going to see sales numbers shifting a bit. Especially relative to the U.S.

  • I like contests!

  • Jessie Koula

    check the website daily and love it. happy 6 years!

  • Tyler Smart

    Thank you for putting on this contest! πŸ™‚

  • Jordan Roberts

    Completely agree, the $79.99 price tag for new games is absolutely insane. At least this makes me rethink every single new game purchase I will be making for the rest of my life. Say goodbye to random impulse buys, sorry gaming industry πŸ™

  • Noel Gomes
