The release of Fallout 4 is pretty goddamn close. November 10 to be precise.
But Australian retailers are already in the midst of a mini price war.
EB Games doesn’t seem to be doing any ‘deals’, in the sense of discounts and whatnot. Makes sense since they’ve exclusively been given the right to sell the game’s Special Edition. You can buy a bog-standard version of the game for $99.95 on both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4.
JB Hi-Fi seems a little more reasonable. A regular version of the game will cost you $89 on console and $79 on PC. Not bad. Update: JB Hi-Fi just changed their online price to just $59, making it the best deal we’ve seen so far.
The next best deal we’ve been able to spot so far — at least in terms of Australian retail — is $69. That’s what Big W is planning to sell the game for in-store. That seems… really cheap actually.
It’s part of a broad sale on games starting October 29. A lot of upcoming major releases are super cheap.
— Halo 5: Guardians is $78
— The Rise Of The Tomb Raider is $69
— Call of Duty: Black Ops III is $64
All pretty good prices. You can find out more here, on Big W’s newly released catalogue.
