Remember when we advised readers to keep checking places like Amazon.com for special January gaming deals? Well, there was a darn good reason for that.
Many big-name titles and system accessories have already received a price cut on Amazon, and even though the Deal of the Day is temporary, it's still worth mentioning…especially when it involves the PlayStation 3. Yep, for today only, you can purchase a brand new 80GB PS3 from Amazon for the price of $349.99, which is $50 cheaper than the standard retail price. Just remember, as it's the Deal of the Day , this deal disappears as of tomorrow and it's only available "while supplies last." With extra little bonuses, you might be able to avoid much of the taxes and shipping costs, too, so now could be an excellent time to finally snag the PS3. We will most likely see an official (and permanent) price drop some time this year, but it probably won't happen any time soon. Therefore, it's always good to take advantage of deals like these; deals that certainly won't pop up at places like GameStop.
While you're over there, browse around for games or accessories you've missed out on in the past; you might be surprised at what you find. January is typically a pretty dreary month for retailers, so now's the time to search for awesome deals and sales.
