You thought it was just Steam sales. You were wrong. They are everywhere. Here are a select few you can expect to test your resolve in the coming week.
The Square-Enix Sale

- Army Corps of Hell for PlayStation Vita - Dead Island for PS3 or Xbox 360 - Deus Ex: Human Revolution for PS3 or Xbox 360 - Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy for PSP - Dungeon Siege 3 for PS3 or Xbox 360 - Final Fantasy 4: The Complete Collection for PSP - Final Fantasy 13-2 for PS3 or Xbox 360 - Heroes of Ruin for 3DS - Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep for PSP - Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance for 3DS - Risen 2: Dark Waters for PS3 or Xbox 360 - Sleeping Dogs for PS3 or Xbox 360 - Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together for PSP - Theatrhythm Final Fantasy for 3DS - Tomb Raider Trilogy for PS3
Bear in mind that this particular sale may only work in the US only, hopefully we'll still be able to access it.
The Origin Sale
This one actually seems to be Australia specific. At the very least, Australian will have access to these deals... when they're actually revealed. The countdown is on, best to check here in a day or so. This is a 24 hour sale, and will most likely be restricted to EA games I would imagine.
The Capcom Sale
This one is a little more restrictive, and more difficult to navigate, but there are bargains to be had regardless. Asura's Wrath, for example, is super cheap...
