Pricefall

Steam may have the best deals, Amazon may have the best variety, and Play-Asia may have the best focus on niche titles, but Newegg probably has the best savings on pre-orders, even for popular titles. With that in mind, we start off this week’s Pricefall with two pre-order deals, and list discounts from all the retailers above and more for their individual specialties.
