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’s 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!

    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!

    Thank you for the awesome deal notifications!

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

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Rick Bertuzzi

    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.

  18. Harrison Funnell
    |

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

  19. g_comtois

    Thanks for all the hard work!

  21. 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.

  22. Vie Bht
    |

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

  23. loneprodigy

    Congrats.

  24. Alex Boudreau-Audet
    |

    Long live to Game Deals Canada and congratulations for the first 6 years! 😉

  25. 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

  26. Zim Zen
    |

    Peasant me needs this gift card XD

  27. Warren Gordon
    |

    Would love to win!! 🙂

  28. Michael Surya

    Thank you for giving me great deals for 6 years!

  29. 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.

  30. Andre P.
    |

    Thanks for all the awesome work you do

  31. Christopher Summerfield
    |

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

  32. briancotie
    |

    Congratulations on 6 years!

  33. 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. ????

  34. 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…

  35. Nirvana

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

  36. Colin Ayin

    |

    Happy 6th!!

  45. 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$ 🙂

  46. Mike Tompson
    |

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

  47. Nathan Hudson
    |

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

  51. Amkof
    |

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

  52. Brian Potter
    |

    Congratulations on your sixth anniversary

  53. Zac C.
    |

    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.

  54. Steve Rogers
    |

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

    Guess I’ll be waiting for more sales and sites like yours will be viewed more regularly. Thanks for posting all the deals over the years.

  69. Achtius
    |

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

  70. 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.

  71. Daryl Ledda
    |

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

  83. Aalvi Saleh

  86. Chris
    |

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

  87. 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.

  88. A.J. Maciejewski

    Thank you for putting on this contest! 🙂

  91. 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 🙁

  92. Noel Gomes
