Today's 'LOL it's cheap for a reason' deal of the day


Really? Two PS3 controllers for only $29? What a deal!

Wait ... but they look like these monstrosities. Sure, you could take advantage of this deal, but what will your friends say when they come over to your home? Remember this: most of you have spent $600 on a machine that was built to look sexy. Let's not ruin it with some cheap looking peripherals, okay?

For the cheap and foolish: Available in red. And blue.

Deal of the Day: Time Crisis 4 for $80


How can an $80 game ever be a deal? Well, when it includes the Guncon 3. Namco Bandai's upcoming Time Crisis 4 is a pricey purchase thanks to the bundled peripheral. However, it promises to be the most advanced light gun on the market. Hopefully, we'll see other games support the Guncon -- it would be a total waste to just make a single game for it. The PSN is a perfect place for Namco Bandai (or any other publisher) to release small new light gun games. (Of course, we hope Sega realizes how perfect it would be to bring Let's Go Jungle! to the system ... )

Amazon.com is offering the game and gun peripheral for $80. Yes, it's a bit much, but it's probably the cheapest pre-order you'll find right now.

Deal of the Day: Oblivion for $20 [Update]


Sure, this isn't the Game of the Year Edition. But hey, at $20, you're getting yourself one of the biggest, meatiest games ever. In fact, according to Metacritic, this is the single best game on PS3 right now. You could spend $20 on something far worse than this game.

[Update: Deal is dead. Looks like amazon.com is sold out of copies. There are third-party merchants on the site, but they're offering the game at regular price.]

Deal of the Day: Dual Charge AC for $13

With a USB cable, you can charge your PS3 controllers through your PS3 system, or a home computer. However, if these options don't work for you, then Nyko has a different solution. The Dual Charge AC will let you charge your PS3 controllers through a standard wall outlet, letting you charge even when your PS3 or computer isn't turned on. A small convenience for most, but this peripheral should also work with any other device that charges via USB. At $13 at amazon.com, this is a pretty good deal.

PS3 and eight Blu-ray movies for $475

It sucks to be an early adopter, y'know? We had to suffer intolerable waits in line, high prices, and a lack of free bonuses. (Okay, so we got "Talladega Nights.") Either through a glitch, or an intentional deal on amazon.com's part, you can buy a 60GB PS3 system and get eight Blu-ray movies for about $475, free shipping included. How does one take part in such a spectacular deal?
  • Add the 60GB PS3 to your amazon.com shopping cart.
  • Choose three Blu-ray movies from this list and add them to the cart. [Updated link!]
  • Right before checkout, you'll see the discount applied (see picture, right).
Then, you'll get a rebate form for five more Blu-ray movies. Even if you don't want to be part of a next-gen movie format war, this is still one of the cheapest ways we've seen to get a PS3 -- the free movies are a nice added bonus.

Deal of the Day: Nyko "Blu Wave" remote

Want to use something other than the PS3 controller to control movies on your system? Well, you can pick up Nyko's "Blu Wave" remote for a shockingly low $10 from amazon.com. However, there's one crucial flaw that prevents it from being an all-around great deal: the lack of a power button. You can, as some have done, use the RF adapter to teach other universal remotes (such as the Harmony) to interface with the PS3. Or, you can go for Sony's more expensive, but more elegant solution for $25.

Deal of the Day: SIXAXIS for $40

Controllers don't come cheap these days. Sony's tilting PS3 controller usually retails for $50, but amazon.com is having a special sale, knocking the price down to $40 (with free shipping to boot!). If you're not waiting for a controller that can rumble (and who knows when that'll arrive), this might be what you need to finally start playing some multiplayer PS3 games.

Amazon.co.uk selling PS3s for (just) under £390 - this week only!

Amazon.co.uk seem to enjoy dropping Sony's prices, even after an official price cut. Well they've done it again. For this week only you can order a 60GB PS3 from Amazon.co.uk for only £389.99. That's a saving of 35 quid. Very nice, indeed!

Does this price cut fall below your PFPT (Personal Financial Pain Threshold)? £390 does feel a lot less than £425. You've got to love Amazon for giving us a clear time limit before the deal ends. If that doesn't push the impulse buyers into parting with their cash, I don't know what will. Will you be taking advantage of the offer? Let us know.

Deal of the Day: Free SIXAXIS with PS3 purchase

Today's Deal of the Day comes to us from EBGames. For the next week (5/11-5/17) you get a free SIXAXIS controller with the purchase of a PlayStation 3. A great deal for people planning on picking up a PlayStation 3 soon, it saves you enough to (almost) buy another game and sets you up nicely for multiplayer action.

The coupon is required though, so make sure to print out the one posted on the official PlayStation forums.

PSM brings DMC4 preview; gets cheap


As many of you are already familiar, PSM has scored a huge 16-page exclusive on Devil May Cry 4 in their latest issue (in newsstands today). Their preview of the multi-platform action game has us yearning for more: "It's safe to say that the generational leap in hardware has not caused the series to lose sight of what it is: pure, all-out, unforgiving action ... Many mainstays from the series, including colored orbs, air juggling, and the Euro-gothic aesthetic remain intact- only everything is rendered in eye-blistering high-definition at a locked 60 frames per second."

While current subscribers are enjoying the dreamy pictures of Nero fighting demon hordes, the vigilant deal-watching group CAG has unearthed a fantastic deal for new subscriptions. 12 issues of PSM are now available for $5 at amazon.com, after instant rebate. While new subscribers are unlikely to receive the latest DMC4 blowout, one Lincoln is still a great deal for something to read when you absolutely have no access to PS3 Fanboy.

Get a new PS3 for cheap


A PS3 price drop?! No, not yet. However, Kmart.com appears to have quite a spectacular deal on a new 60GB PlayStation 3. Using coupon code 004687478018, you'll be able to pick up a PS3 for a full 10% off: only $540, plus shipping. With Virtua Fighter 5 out now, and MotorStorm right around the corner, this may be the push you need to PLAY B3YOND.

But, if you're in need of a new "full HD" 1080p, you may be interested in this other deal, courtesy of Newegg.com: buy this 46" Sharp Aquos TV, get a PS3 for free. Not bad, huh?
