Samsung Gear VR 2015 model clearance sale at $49

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Dec 30, 2016 8:52 am

The wireless provider companies are pre-Spring cleaning a few of their good-but-dated accessories. In the waning days of 2016, one of the best routers of 2013 is getting its price reduced to $59 at T-Mobile which is about $100 cheaper than the next best price online. Verizon is doing a similar thing with the 2015 released Samsung Gear VR Headset dropping the price from $100 to $49.99 - its lowest price to date.

 

samsung-gear-vr-falls-49-asus-router-deal-59_0005

 

In the case of the Samsung Gear VR deal, we've seen it drop to $49.99 before but not in brand new condition like this. Typically the headset still sells in the $100 range while Amazon is selling refurbished sets for $60 right now.

 

 

The ASUS RT-AC68U deal at T-Mobile requires you to enter in promo code WIFI40 at checkout to get the full discount. Even the show price of $99 is not bad at all, considering most retailers are $150 and up, but applying the promo gets you an additional $40 off in the second stage of checkout. T-Mobile ran this deal 2 weeks ago, but it sold out within hours. This deal is set to only run through January 5th, or probably sooner if stock is limited.

 

The Samsung Gear VR Headset deal (model SM-R322) at Verizon is hidden of sorts. Verizon requires you to add the headset to cart before the discount is revealed. There is a moment of uncertainty as you're on Verizon's site with their $99 displayed price, but not much of a hassle to get the deal.

$5 Metro Redux and Wolfenstein for Steam in Winter Sale

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Dec 29, 2016 7:20 pm

Remember when the Metro Redux bundle released on PC for $50 back in August 2014? That price is long gone, and ever more so during 2016's PC Gaming Winter sales. Steam has reduced the title to $5.99, but GMG has gone all out on the hundreds of deals they have in their sale, turning on a 15% off coupon code making new lows on dozens of titles. With the new coupon, Metro Redux bundle is now a mere $4.92 after coupon in GMG's sale, and their list of hot deals is well worth checking out.

 

new-low-metro-watch-dogs-2-during-pc-winter-sale_0009

 

While we're at it, remember when Watch Dogs 2 released for $60? That was only a little over a month ago. Ubisoft's latest along with other Triple-A such as Civilization VI, No Man's Sky, and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare are all at their lowest prices to date with the aforementioned coupon code for their digital copies. Most of the titles listed below go above and beyond the Steam Winter sale discount. The sale even extends to upcoming January releases such as Resident Evil 7.

 

We've broken down the list of deals below by top sellers, upcoming games, and under $10 bargains. Browse away!

Cyber Monday HTC Vive deal with $200 bonus makes return

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Dec 28, 2016 8:25 pm

Update: $100 discount is now gone on the HTC Vive but you can still get a $100 gift card with purchase.

 

The Microsoft Store must not have sold enough HTC Vive units this Christmas season, because they've brought back the best offer of the year last seen Cyber Monday. This week when you buy an HTC Vive VR system through the Microsoft Store you'll get a $100 discount and a $100 bonus gift card. Taking the gift card bonus into account, that effectively makes the HTC Vive a $599 headset, which is the same price as the cheaper alternative Oculus Rift.

 

htc-vive-vr-system-100-gift-card_0008

 

Now the Rift and the Vive each have their own pros and cons, but few would argue the Oculus Rift is the better of the two systems, as the Vive grants you greater options for gameplay (full room vs. stationary headset). Now with there only being a $100 price difference between the two at Microsoft, do you just soak up the $100 loss and get the better system? Great question.

 

 

In the case of the Oculus Rift, Microsoft does offer the same $100 bonus gift card. This Gift Card is actually more of a "Gift Code" which arrives via email once your order ships and is good for anything sold at the Microsoft Store like games, computers, tablets, and software.

 

Microsoft has been offering the $100 bonus gift code for awhile now. In fact the last few weeks they've been running the gift code promo, but it's may not have been a strong enough offer to move the Vive. Thus the $100 discount has come to the potential rescue. What we do know is that this is the best HTC Vive offer since Cyber Monday.

Roundup: cheaper deals than Steam Winter Sale

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Dec 23, 2016 7:20 am

If your wallet has anything leftover from buying console games for your peasant relatives, the PC Gaming master race sales have kicked into high gear. Today Steam launched their highly anticipated 2016 Winter Sale, while other retailers refreshed their own competitive offers to look more attractive. The result is new lows all over the map including the cheapest Dishonored 2, Doom, Rainbow Six: Siege, and of course Civilization VI. Many of the deals you'll find below will be cheaper and better than Steam Store's price (mostly for NA/EU customers).

 

roundup-cheaper-deals-steam-winter-sale_01

 

Exhibit A will be the 2016 GMG Winter Sale. Today they launched a third batch of deals including some hot prices on Bethesda and Ubisoft games. Among the discounts is Dishonored 2 dropping to its lowest price of the year: $34.46 after applying their Winter themed coupon code WINTER10 at checkout.

 

While Steam's Winter sale is generally beat by GMG and other third party retailers, Steam's sale also covers many titles that are sold exclusively on Steam Store. Big example? Ark Survival Evolved and the well received Planet Coaster are both hitting new lows today in Steam's sale. You'll find them listed along with other noteworthy Steam Store deals below.

PC Winter Sale continues with $10 Rocket League

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Dec 20, 2016 7:18 pm

The PC Gaming Winter Sales are upon us ... and Steam's seasonal offers have yet to begin. Today two new big sales emerged: 1) the refresh of the GMG 2016 Winter Sale and 2) the beginning of the Bundle Stars PC gaming Winter Sale. What both have in common are discounts up to 90% off with a stacking 10% off coupon code to boot for additional savings. Both sales cover a wide range of titles, and among the deals is the best Indie game of all-time (probably) Rocket League.

 

pc-winter-sale-continues-10-rocket-league_0007

 

The best sale to find Rocket League in is GMG with a drop from $20 to $10.79 after coupon. That's a rare drop under $12, and very likely to be cheaper than Steam after the 40% discount + stacking 10% off coupon code. Funny enough, though, it's Bundle Stars hosting the best deal on the 4-Pack Rocket League bundle with a drop from $80 to $32.00 - a historic low price point.

 

Rocket League Deals:

 

 

GMG Winter Sale Hot Deals - use promo code: WINTER10

 

 

Bundle Stars Winter Sale Hot Deals - use promo code: WINTERSALE10

 

 

Both PC gaming Winter Sales will continue these deals past Christmas, so there is some good longevity to the offers. Among the new lows at GMG are Warhammer Vermintide, Civilization VI, Mafia III, and more. Bundle Stars is seeing likewise the cheapest Mad Max, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, Project Highrise, Stronghold 3 Gold, and more.

PC Winter Sale: 83% off Valve's Complete Pack and more

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Dec 17, 2016 6:58 pm

The temperature may be dropping but the PC gaming deals are just heating up. Though Winter has not technically started, we're already seeing the beginning of the PC gaming Winter Sales this December. GMG has just launched their very own Winter sale this week with discounts on dozens of publishers titles like 2K and Valve with price breaks up to 90% with a stacking 10% off promo code.

 

new-winter-sale-makes-valves-complete-pack-drop-83_0009

 

The instant savings + promo code discount combo is making new lows on several notable PC download titles. The Valve Complete Pack, which includes the coveted Counter Strike: GO, is down to a mere $17.09 after coupon. That's a massive 83% off the usual $100 list price.

 

Also notable are discounts on recent release like Civilization VI. Both Standard and Deluxe downloads are hitting new lows with a drop into the $41 to $55 range respectively. A full list of deals can be found here or else our top picks are listed below.

 

Use Promo Code: WINTER10

 

 

The GMG Winter sale will be around for awhile and will get frequent updates as time goes on. This current batch of discounts will mostly be valid now through December 26, though some end earlier on the 19th. The entire sale ends on January 9th, 2017.

 

Update 12/15 GamersGate has fired up their 2016 Christmas sale with hundreds of PC downloads. Generally GMG's deals will beat them out due to their 10% off coupon, BUT GamersGate has a wider selection and some strong leads including rare discounts on Warframe Packs and $5 Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor GOTY.

PC game release deals: Shadow Tactics + Arizona Sunshine

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Dec 7, 2016 10:22 pm

While most of the big name games are already out this year, a few surprises are left in 2016's lineup. Today, we saw the launch of the first VR Zombie Shooter Arizona Sunshine and a new tactical stealth game Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun. Both are heavily discounted on today's launch at GMG with price breaks up to 32% off. Both titles are high up in Steam Store's top seller list and relatively well received.

 

release-discounts-shadow-tactics-arizona-sunshine-32_007

 

Early December releases like Friday's upcoming Warhammer Space Hulk: Deathwing are dropping as much as $13. That's about as good as you can expect for pre-orders and recent releases. In other noteworthy PC game deals for the week, we're spotting Lara Croft Go, a new Euro Truck Simulator 2 title, and, of course, Ubisoft's latest Steep and Watch Dogs 2.

 

Early December Releases:

 

 

Late November Releases:

 

 

All the deals listed above are from GMG, who is an authorized PC gaming retailer. These are then all the best prices you can find without taking a trip to the shady grey market.

 

As mentioned earlier, several November 29 releases are also going on sale at GMG. Ubisoft's Watch Dogs 2 is 20% off as is Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege Year 2 Pass. The complete version of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege was also released early last now that Year 2 pass has arrived. If you're itching for new operators, this is the pack to get. Some deals above will require login to see the discount - once you add to cart, the price will reflect accordingly.

Five budget laptops under $300 deals for Christmas

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Dec 7, 2016 9:39 pm

You're on a laptop budget of $300 and you need it by Christmas. You might want to consider picking up a unit today or you'll be facing expensive shipping options to get it in time for gift wrapping. This week five decent budget laptop deals emerged from the ashes of Cyber Monday and Black Friday last week. In fact, some of these under $300 laptop deals are even cheaper than the biggest online shopping day of the year.

 

four-budget-laptops-under-300-deals-christmas_2

 

At the top of our list is a 15-inch Lenovo IdeaPad 110 "Signature Edition" from Microsoft Store. This 15.6-inch laptop is spec'd with an Intel Celeron processor originally priced at $299. Thanks to Xmas/Holiday promotion, the laptop gets $100 off along with a 1TB hard drive - a combination you really don't see on a new conditioned laptop at this price point.

 

Budget Laptop Deals

 

 

Another great option out there, and once again cheaper than Cyber Monday, is the 15.6-inch Lenovo 110-15. If you'd rather veer away from an AMD processor and go Intel, this one comes with a Pentium N3710, 4GB RAM, and a 1TB hard drive. All great specs for the $290.49 price tag after a doorbuster themed coupon code. The Lenovo deal runs only through December 9th.

 

If you want to go even cheaper, Chromebooks are a good alternative as a basic word processor and Internet streaming/browsing machine. At HP, you can pick up their popular 11-inch Chromebook for $179, and while the spec on the HP Chromebook 11 versus the IdeaPad 110 15-inch aren't too far off (both carrying the Celeron N3060 CPU), you're looking at a 16GB eMMC storage on the Chromebook versus the 1TB HDD on the Windows 10 Lenovo device.

Top 6 laptop leftover deals for Cyber Week

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Dec 1, 2016 6:58 pm

The Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals are over, and you still didn't buy that new laptop? No problem, there are still a few hot deals leftover from Cyber Monday. If you're on a budget or want something higher-end with a good price break, we've rounded up the top 5 post-Cyber Monday laptop deals.

 

top-6-laptop-leftover-deals-cyber-week_02

 

Three retailers stand out as offering decent deals: Lenovo, HP, and Dell. It's obvious to us that Lenovo is trying to rid themselves of a few 2016 laptop models to make way for the upcoming 2017 units, probably with new Intel 7th generation "Kaby Lake" processors. HP and Dell, on the other hand, have a select few laptops equipped with the new 7th gen processors on the cheap.

 

  • 1) Lenovo Ideapad 700 - $669.99 at Lenovo (list $930)
  • Use Coupon Code: DRBUSTER88
  • 15.6" 1080p IPS Display
  • Core i5-6300HQ
  • 12GB RAM
  • eForce GTX 950M
  • 256GB SSD

 

  • 2) Lenovo Y700-14 80NU002AUS - $719.99 at Lenovo (list $1,000)
  • Use Coupon Code: DRBUSTER99
  • 14" 1080p IPS Display
  • Core i7-6700HQ
  • 16GB RAM
  • Radeon R9 M375
  • 1TB HDD + 256GB SSD

 

If you've been looking for a cheap mid-range and entry-level gaming laptop, both the Lenovo models above should do the trick nicely. The Ideapad 700 with the GTX950M will be able to handle most modern games at decent settings, while the smaller 14-inch Y700-14 has a much weaker GPU though it will still suffice for casual gaming. Both units come with SSD and are at a rare price range for machines with SSD, Full HD IPS panels and a GPU.

 

  • 3) Dell Inspiron 17 5000 - $749 at Dell (list $1,050)
  • Use Coupon Code: EARLYBIRD250
  • 17.3" 1080p Display
  • Core i7-7500U
  • 16GB RAM
  • Radeon R7 M445

 

Dell has refreshed their lineup of the 17.3-inch Inspiron 17 with a new 7th gen "Kaby Lake" processor. This one spec'd with a Core i7 CPU, 16GB RAM, and a Radeon R7 GPU was originally listed for $1,050 when it first released this month. Now after a $300 off coupon code you can reduce the price to $749. Probably the cheapest i7 Kaby Lake laptop out there with 16GB RAM.

 

  • 4) HP Pavilion 17 - $569.99 at HP (list $880)
  • Use Coupon Code: EMRY9599
  • 15.6" 1080p IPS display
  • Core i5-6300HQ
  • 8GB RAM
  • GeForce GTX 960M

 

HP killed off most of the big discounts it was posting on Cyber Monday, but one laptop to get a slightly better price was their basic 17.3-inch HP Pavilion 17 model with a Quad Core i5 processor and discrete graphics. This is in fact a very gaming capable laptop and one of the lowest priced on the market with a Quad Core CPU + GTX 960M GPU.

 

 

If you're into a larger screen 2-in-1 fold-able laptop, the HP Pavilion x360 at the Microsoft Store will be worth looking at. This week the Intel 7th gen "Kaby Lake" equipped laptop dropped to $529, which is $200 off the usual $729 at most retailers. HP has a similar configuration with weaker 6GB RAM on sale for $529 this week, but this laptop at Microsoft has a higher 8GB RAM for the same cheapest-ever price point.

 

 

One last laptop to look at the Microsoft Store is their 15.6-inch Lenovo Z50 gaming-ish laptop for only $319. One shouldn't be bragging about these specs for gaming, but it will be capable of light gaming with an AMD FX-7500 CPU and Radeon R7 video card. Free game download included from AMD, which you can find the details about here.

Blizzard adds Reaper to the ranks of collectible statues

By: Ma Yong Kang | More News: Deals | Posted: Nov 28, 2016 7:32 pm

Blizzard have announced another addition to its premium statue collectibles. It's none other than Reaper himself from Overwatch while in his ultimate - Death Blossom. It's dangerously beautiful. You might not want to stare at it too much.

 

 

The statue will be sold like the previous Tracer one for $150 and limited to 2 per customer. It will measure 12"/30.48cm (floor to head) and will be hand painted. Each one of them might have some variations.

 

Reaper will be sculpted out of polystone by staff Senior Sculptor Brian Fay who also sculpted the first one, Tracer. People might want to order it now as it ships in two waves, the first being Q1 2017 and second being Q3 2017.

 

It might be a while before they can take new orders if you miss it as Blizzard haven't come back with their second batch of Tracer statues.
