Best Buy holding big video game Summer sale

Console gamers get kind of left out in the cold whenever the fantastic Steam Summer Sale comes around, but it looks like Best Buy is trying to emulate that success and bring the mega-sales to console gamers.

Their Summer Gaming Blowout sale includes a ton of big name games for pretty great prices including Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Madden 12, Final Fantasy XIII-2, and Metroid: Other M. The list goes on, and most of them are available for more than 50% off. Though, keep in mind that Best Buy prices are notoriously behind-the-times. Metroid: Other M for instance is 90% off...the absurd price of $49.99. But regardless, $5 for Other M is a steal.

You'll also find a bunch of accessories like Bluetooth mics and gaming headsets. It's a great time to be a video gamer. These days it seems like companies can't discount their software fast enough, and gamers are reaping the benefits. We can't remember the last time we paid more than $30 for a non-launch title.

Need some recommendations in this list? Try out Other MSin and Punishment at just $5 each, as well as Deus Ex: Human RevolutionDragon Age 2, and the God of War PSP games at $10 each.

    the only game that I wanted out of the bunch is Assassin's Creed Revelations but I just bought Brotherhood on the Steam Summer Sale so I'm just going to wait until the Winter Sale for that one, I bought a bunch of games from steam that I still haven't touched yet so I think I can hold out.

    I'll be encouraging as much of my friends as possible to get Warhammer 40k: Space Marine. That game is sweet, especially when you've been playing the tabletop games for years you can appreciate the game that much more.

    I was able to get Deus Ex HR and all its DLC on steam for the same price so.....

    I find it kind of funny that after EA says sales hurt games, everyone, including EA, announces a huge sale. Aside from Steam of course. They've been doing it right for a while now.

    Actually my Best Buy is several times more competive in pricing than the Games stop near me so if this extends to the actual store fronts then I will have to buy some games

    Worth noting too that their gaming magazine has a coupon for $30 off of Kingdoms of Amalur, which is currently priced at $40. I've been playing for the last week and it's definitely worth 10 bucks.
