How was Boxing Day steeped in a pandemic year? Let’s take a look.
The Annual Franchises
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War stood its ground at retail and kept its MSRP price — PlayStation 5? PlayStation 4? It didn’t matter, Activision Blizzard weren’t discounting that game at retail. Very strange to see.
Watch Dogs: Legion continued its discount journey from $49.99 of Black Friday to $39.99 for Boxing Day. Not surprising.
A whole $5 was chipped off Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time’s Black Friday sale price, but everything else was largely the same…
A handful of games may creep back up by $10 or so, but the likes of Sony don’t even bother changing sale prices between Black Friday and Boxing Day. It might as well have been a temporary price drop between end of November until early January.
I’ve been keeping tabs on these two big holiday sales periods for the last 11 years now and it’s pretty safe to declare the two sales events as one and the same.
I’m not sure if there’s any point to keep this going…
