Codemasters DiRT 4 was suppose to go live on June 9th for PC - a few days behind Tuesday's PS4 and Xbox One console launch. So much for the slight delay as the game has gone live as of writing, which is a few hours ahead of schedule. At the exact same time, you can still pick up the game at GMG where you'll not only get the pre-order bonus but also a 22% off discount. Both of this offer may be gone later this week when we pass the official release date on Friday June 9.
PC is the lowest price you're going to find on DiRT 4, but surprisingly, Amazon has the console versions on sale as well. The Steam copy is 22% off with a drop to $46.79 while the Xbox One and PS4 copies are around $49 - or ~19% off which is about what you normally get if you're a Prime member (special 20% discount for select pre-order games).
- DiRT 4 (Steam) - $46.79 at GMG (list $60)
- DiRT 4 - Day One Edition (PS4) - $48.13 at Amazon (list $60)
- DiRT 4 - Day One Edition (Xbox One) - $49.72 at Amazon (list $60)
The PC discount at GMG is actually a "VIP price" that will require you to jump through a fairly minor hoop. Just login or create an account at the retailer to get the best 22% off price. You'll need to make an account at any other retailer you purchase from online, so you might as well go through the trouble and get the best price online for Codemasters' latest.
The discounts on Amazon are a curious thing, and actually started off lower this week with the PS4 version running at only about $40. Since then prices on the PS4 and Xbox One copies have risen to their current ~$49 levels and will likely continue to rise through the weekend due to Amazon's price robot. It's safe to say they'll be around for only a a limited time. If you're a DiRT series fan and you're planning to play on Day One, we suspect these are the best deals available for all platforms in the near future.
