Fallout 4 comes out tomorrow and the price war that has followed this highly anticipated video game has been truly legendary.
This has been the bloodiest video game retail release I can remember. And the price slashing continues to escalate.
Of all the deals I've seen, this may be the cheapest. Independent Aussie retailer Gamesmen is selling Fallout 4 on Xbox One and PS4 for $58 on their eBay Store. That includes delivery. It also comes with a handy Fallout 4 perk poster.
One little catch: stock is limited.
Gamesmen started out with 2000 units. They're now down to under 500. By the time you read this post there's a high chance they'll be sold out. In fact, at time of writing, they've already sold out of PC copies.
GO GO GO!
The Best Pre-Order Deal
But if you miss out on the Gamesmen deal, your next best bet might be the JB Hi-Fi deal. That one is still $59 for a pre-order on all three formats. It appears as though JB Hi-Fi will be less likely to run out of copies. But: JB Hi-Fi has run out of online copies at this price. You're going to have to enquire in-store if you want this one.
Again: this is pre-order only. No idea whether or not JB Hi-Fi will keep this deal going once the game has launched. I know — pre-ordering games isn't ideal, but this is a decent exception to make.
We called up one store and were informed that yes, pre-orders are still available at that price. Also: the non-pre-order price on day one is $69. Which isn't bad, but it's still $10 more.
The Next Best Thing
Target is still selling Fallout 4 at $64. That is still an absolutely phenomenal price. There's less information on this deal online, but that is the price they have on their most recent catalogue, so this is most likely an in-store, on-the-day deal. Again — Gamesmen will most likely be sold out at this point, as will JB Hi-Fi I'm expecting. Be aware that the bargain hunters among you will most likely be swarming to Target as option number three. I wouldn't be surprised if this deal sells out tomorrow as well.
The Last Resort
Okay, last chance here. If you remember it was Big W who kicked off this crazy price war to begin with. They're selling Fallout 4 at $69 on console and PC. That deal still stands. It might end up being your safest bet in the end. Again, this is in-store.
