Dealhacker: Get Up To 80 Percent Off Video Games From Amazon

Amazon has just launched its "End of Summer" Sale with up to 80 per cent off a range of video games, including Titanfall, Batman Mega Bundle and Hitman: Absolution. Here are a few bargains that are worth checking out -- with links to each deal.

On the off-chance that Green Man Gaming's recent Top 50 sale didn't leave you penniless, Amazon has stepped in to mop up any remaining pocket shrapnel. There are some pretty impressive titles up for grabs, including plenty of retro classics for the grumpy old gamer set.

As always, you will need to set up a bogus US account to access these deals. The sale ends 1 September. Below are some of the deals that caught our eye:

    This should probably be marked as category [PC]. Not [In Real Life].

    In the spirit of illegal Netflix pirating, is using 'a bogus US account to access these deals' the same as downloading these games from tpb for free?

      One gives money back to people, so I'd say no.

        So does one when subscribing to Netflix, we're still told that we're breaking the law though.

      Apparently you can no longer do this. They require a CC issued by an American bank. I found this out last night when I wanted to get the God and Kings DLC for Civ 5. $10 off of Amazon, $50 off of Aus Steam, and they wouldn't let me buy it

        Can you purchase Amazon gift card using Aussie CC and then redeem that for these games? That's how I got US Xbox $$ loaded into my account.

        From what I understand it's only 2k games affected by this credit card blocking business. I haven't tried myself yet but I saw some Aussies got metro LL fine via amazon yesterday...

    LOL funny they chose Manhunt 2 as the header image - you can't buy it without a US credit card. I even created a new Amazon account and gave it some money as a voucher but without a US CC I couldn't complete the purchase. I chatted to a service rep and his solution was to find someone with a credit card (US), enter it, the voucher would cover the charge, then remove the CC. What a joke.
