'FIFA Manager 11', 'Lego Harry Potter', maybe 'Sims 3' among weekend PC game sales
Friday 15 April 2011
FIFA Manager 11 is a nickel under $10 to North American players on the ImpulseDriven site, while
Lego Harry Potter is Microsoft's worldwide offer and there's a chance that
The Sims 3 will be about $10 or £11.
A fair amount of undercutting is going on, as GetGames offers the legitimate Steam version of Just Cause 2 for up to 75% less than Steam itself.
GamersGate also takes a pop at digital distribution's biggest player, making it cheaper to buy Gratuitous Space Battles and all of its add-ons separately rather than in Steam's Complete bundle.
Steam instead has a handful of new deals every day alongside The Potato Sack, a collection of 13 highly rated indie games that tie in to the highly anticipated debut of Portal 2 on April 19.
The Sims 3 could well pop up among Direct2Drive's daily deals very soon. There's a new bargain every day throughout April, and The Sims 3 is one of five big-name games that are known to be coming up before the end of the month.
The others are Bulletstorm, Civilization IV, Dead Space 2, and Rift. Featured titles so far have had 75% knocked off their asking price, and that would bring The Sims 3 down to around ten notes.
