Pricefall

While we have a number of sales for this week’s Pricefall, one of the more noteworthy deals is a rather unusual offering from Best Buy for Mario Kart 8. If you pre-order Mario Kart 8 you get $10 of Gas Cash to be redeemed at any U.S. gas station that accepts MasterCard. Codes for the redeemable gas money are sent out 24 hours prior to the release of the game, or on your receipt at the time of in-store pick up. This has to be one of the stranger deals we’ve come across, but certainly not bad for a pre-order.

    Since its on the list, I figure its cool to mention it. I’m really looking forward to Tales of Xillia 2. I can’t afford the Collector’s Edition, but I’m definitely getting the game.
