Nintendo Switch owners (and wannabe owners) aren’t the only ones getting in on game sales – there are plenty of PS4 and Xbox deals out there, too. Specifically:
[ Nintendo’s “Mario Day” sale ] : Get a Switch with one of five Mario games for $30 off; $20 discounts on the digital versions of those same Mario games are available (now through March 16).
[ Titanfall 2 for $5 to $7 ]( : This fun mech shooter – a prequel of sorts to Apex Legends – is again deeply discounted.
[ Call of Duty WWII for $10 ] : This World War II shooter is currently discounted at Walmart.
[ Red Dead Redemption for $10 to $11 ] : The Xbox One-enhanced version of the original open world Western is on sale at Amazon and Walmart.
[ $20 off Red Dead Redemption 2 ] : One of 2018’s top games is 33 percent off.
Details and direct buying links are below. The only “catch” here is that these games are in disc format, not digital (unless otherwise noted). Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of products featured on this page.
Titanfall 2 for $5 to $7
Why should you care about this 2016 mech shooter? Well, it’s (1) really fun and (2) set in the same universe as the new free-to-play multiplayer smash hit Apex Legends. Unlike Apex, this one is a solo campaign. My only complaint was that the game was a tad short – but at this price, that’s not even a quibble. For whatever reason, the PS4 version seems to go for $7, It’s $5 for the Xbox One.
Call of Duty WWII for $10
Walmart is discounting the 2017 entry into the Call of Duty series down to just $10. GameSpot awarded this one a 9 out of 10, and it scored a 73 out of 100 on Metacritic – but both of those were judged against a $60 purchase price.
Red Dead Redemption for $10 to $11
Red Dead Redemption 2 (see below) was released last year to nearly universal praise. But that game is actually a prequel to this 2010 original, which is an amazing open-world Western, too. The Xbox 360 version of that game was rolled into a “Game of the Year” edition a year later with nice graphical enhancements for the Xbox One. (Sorry, PS4 owners – no backwards compatibility bites, sometimes.) It’s $10 at Amazon and Best Buy, $11 at Walmart.
