It looks like those of you who prefer digital downloads to retail games will have a few discounted choices this Friday. Microsoft is having a sale for the digital Xbox One versions of Thief, Tomb Raider Definitive Edition and Call of Duty Ghosts. I’m happy about this as I prefer digital games especially since we have to install them whether they are physical or digital.
The price for Thief and Tomb Raider will be $29.99 and Ghosts will be $39.99. The sale begins on Friday, March 28th and ends on March 30th so get ready. And don’t worry Xbox 360 owners. These same games will be discounted on the Xbox 360.
One of the really good discounts right now is for BioShock Infinite. If you have Xbox Live Gold, the game is only $10!
I know there are millions of you out there waiting on the new add-on content for Call of Duty: Ghosts. Well it’s here and it’s here first for Xbox. You can take a look at the new maps it has in the video below. If you’re playing Ghosts, let me know. Onslaught comes with 4 new maps, 2 new weapons and an extra chapter for Extinction Mode. Yummy right?
Attention Xbox 360 owners (which should be just about all of you). Microsoft just put Call of Duty Ghosts on sale for $40 this week. It’s a steal for one of the top first person shooters of 2013. It’s not my bag of tea but I know there are legions of Call of Duty fans out there. If you haven’t picked up Ghosts yet, here’s your chance.
Ghosts isn’t the only title on sale this week. Xbox One owners can get Powerstar Golf for a bit cheaper. It’ll be $14.99 at checkout. Xbox 360 owners also have Dark Souls, The Witcher 2 and others to choose from at a discount.
I have a definite bias towards a game that looks the part. I am what many call a “graphics whore”. I don’t deny that. The leap from this current generation to the next generation of consoles has worried me. I didn’t know if it was really worth the investment because of the leap in visual quality that we could expect. Well, my friends at IGN have a pretty cool video comparison up.
Word on the street is that the Xbox One version of Call of Duty Ghosts will be 720p and not 1080p native like the PS4 version. Does anyone care? You will have to find out by listening to the show! We had a very heated debate on the subject of Call of Duty in general. One of my good friends from Gamertag Radio, Parris, dropped in again to give his thoughts. You do not want to miss Deacon and his rant about Call of Duty versus Battlefield 4.
Activision is the first publisher to come out with details of its game upgrade program. For a limited time, those of you who purchase the Xbox 360 (or PS3) version of Call of Duty: Ghosts, you’ll be able to get the Xbox One/PS4 version for only $10 more. That’s a pretty good deal if you ask me. Retail chains like Amazon and GameStop are expected to honor this deal.
I hope other publishers follow suit. Activision is for once doing something for gamers that isn’t about their pockets.
