WHILE YOU’RE OGLING all the new games at the Electronics Entertainment Expo (E3) this week, you might want to take a look at these old ones, too. Rivals Sony and Microsoft are each holding massive game and console sales this week, presumably in a bid to outdo each other and gain momentum. There are even a few Nintendo game deals going on. Details on each E3 week game and console deal are below, along with a few particularly good game deals we found.
PRE-ORDER NEW E3 GAMES
Amazon has a roundup of big E3 games that you can pre-order now. Some of the games may include perks to pre-ordering, but do keep in mind that these games haven’t been reviewed yet, and most won’t come out for months. But if you know you’re gonna play a game, it never hurts to pre-order it early. View Amazon’s Full E3 Pre-Order List.
