After F.E.A.R. 3 releases this week, the typical summer drought sets in. Personally, there's nothing I'm even remotely interested in until Deus Ex: Human Revolution , which drops in late August. And yes, we've heard White Knight Chronicles 2 won't make its August 2 launch date; it's now set for September in the US.

Hence, after you finish inFamous 2 – you're playing it, right? – you might experience one of those rare lulls where huge video games aren't hitting store shelves every few weeks. If that's the case, you should definitely look into your backlog; games you've been meaning to play but never got around to. So head over to Amazon.com , where the online retailer is holding a game clearance sale. Supposedly, nearly 1,000 titles are involved in the sale, and you can grab older stuff like Top Spin 3 , Wolfenstein , Way of the Samurai 3 , Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction CE , The Saboteur and more for between $10 and $25. Heck, we even see the great PS2 RPG, Rogue Galaxy , in there for $20. PC gamers can grab the Game of the Year Edition of Guild Wars for the ridiculously low price of $8, and you could also snag MotoGP 09/10 and Dark Void for $20 (each only costs $10).

Search around; there has to be something you can find.

I think I'd pay money to see a cumulative Metacritic rating for that lot of mostly garbage games that I'd hope even Porky wouldn't like.

That's a little fussy. The Saboteur, SC Conviction and Top Spin are all great games when bought for bargain prices. Even Dark Void at 10 is completely worth it. Almost ANY game is worth 10 if you ask me…

Eh, not for me. My time is worth more to me at that point. In fact, I buy too many games to play as it is, all high rated, too.
I did spot Motorstorm Arctic Edge for like $9 in there.
But I'd rather have my PSP stuff digital. Saves on the old battery longevity.

"All high rated too!"

I gotta say, that made me laugh more than your last burger related Modern Warfare joke. They've run their course, friend. Someone had to tell you sooner or later.

Hey, the MW's are highly rated. And where else can I get burger establishments in games?
I don't even think Cole gets to the choice to hang out near any in New Marias or Empire City.

Why in hell is WKC2 slipping in the US? It's already been fully localized, all D3 has to do is order the discs, print the labels and box the bloody things for sale.

Yeah what the hell man? They must be doing something else to it. Maybe they have DLC coming that they want on the disc?

Or maybe it's the lowest priority on their list, after all SCEA didn't care sufficiently to do anything about it.

What the [email protected]*&?

Wkc2's not hitting the aug 2nd date? They hell is this garbage?

This is bogus. Does anyone know anything about it or is it all just speculative?

I'm seriously thinking about importing now. On the flip side though, gives me more time to get back to where I was in the game.

This is still b.s. though….

Bummer

Yah! If it's already in Europe, what's the deal? Maybe the sales there are super poor. o.O

With uncertainty over the publishing of the game here, sales are hardly going to be helped – you know what I mean?

Good luck with the UGC stuff. All but like 5 missions of the 30 or so I played were garbage.

I agree with temjin, get it you won't be disappointed. It's like playing a japanese action movie. Downright fun.

I don't know why I'm seeing games more expensive than when I purchased them there in Amazon. For example, I purchased Tomb Raider trilogy for 30, and Heavy Rain for 25 or so. But still, Amazon is almost always my games supplier now. They always have great prices for at least one game you should buy.

Should I buy Last Rebellion for 20??? Is it worth it?? … Nevermind I remembered that the review was awful (and double checked it, 3.7), But I don't know why I feel like it's a great game. I'm going to wait until it has a price of 8 bucks or so…

I didn't see anything that interested me. Its a lot of PS3 games that received low review scores. I don't want them.

That Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II Collector's Edition is mighty tempting but knowing my luck with Amazon shipping, I'll receive it with a giant footprint stamped into the front of its Steelbook case. I ordered the Sith Edition of the first game from Amazon and it was dented like crazy.

I've lived two places now where UPS delivers my Amazon orders at the very tail end of their work day.
Which is like 7:00pm
I nearly thought I wasn't going to receive my Infamous 2 on release day.

But to add to that, I filled the time that day while waiting for it to arrive….

I made the local news having been spotted climbing street side poles, bioleech'ing cats, and jumping from car hoods. All the while holding out my hand making electrical sounds with my mouth.

=p

also, you can grab recent titles at 39.99 such as LA Noire, Portal 2, Crysis 2, Dead Space 2 CE at amazon.

It's probably worth noting that Bleach: Soul Resurreccion is going to be releasing on August 2. And according to the PS Blog Amy is going to be releasing "this summer". So it doesn't really look like this year's summer drought is really going to be all that bad. And besides, if there's relatively few releases during this summer then that probably means that already released PS3 exclusives are going to be having an easier time, infamous 2 in particular. So I for one am not really complaining, although it is too bad about the WKC 2 delay.

Man I checked out the sale and most of the new games are still priced reasonably high or with the same discounted prices you can find at Gamespot and Bestbuy. Might pick up Dead Space 2 and Portal 2 finally. Time to find some old crap I can play until October. Hope I can find Grid…anyone remember GRID?

You can get two Fear 3s for 50 over at TRU. Well, there's a bunch of new games there going 2 for 50. Look there first before dropping 40 on LA Noire, Portal 2 or Fear 3.

Wolfenstein is pretty fun, if also pretty ugly. Dark Void is great for jetpack lovers like me (It's also like a low-budget Uncharted). Never played Saboteur. Rogue Galaxy is JRPG Gold that finds a way to have a good action battle system.

Oh yeah there's a Gold Box event tomorrow guys.

When is Catherine coming out? I probably won't get it new but ya never know.

haha, sadly my crystal ball (cell phone) did not reveal what would be up aside from "Video Game Products" so I don't even know if there's PS3 stuff but it's worth a look when it begins at 12:01 AM Pacific time.

Those gold box are always pretty sweet, good to know there is going to be a one later tonight. If anyone knows what items going to be there please tell. I remember a couple of times people leaked the info somewhere in the web.

Thanks for the heads up on the gold box event. Good thing I didn't spend all my money today.

I bought The Saboteur a few months back at wal-mart for $20. I thought it was a newer game than what it actually was, but its pretty decent. Its kind of like GTA in the 40's blowing up and killing Nazi's in the shadows. I stopped playing it to play Infamous in preparation for Infamous 2. Which I've platinummed so I'm probably going to be going back to it pretty soon.

It's not that often that we in Europe get a game before you guys across the pond. Normally it's released on a Tuesday for you guys and Friday for us (unless pre-ordered off the net and you get it sometimes a day or 2 early) why it's not been released yet for you guys I do not know. Makes you wonder why it's being delayed.

As Ben said though plenty of games in our backlog to get through in the summer. I know I have mine to work through.

I just emerged from Amazon $25.00 poorer, but I have something to play besides my 2nd round of inFamous2. Looking forward to more DLC for L.A. Noire which should be on the psn store tomorrow, I hope anyway. This is not going to hold me over until WKC2, but I'm going to try and drag it out a little or I'll end up hitting the psn store for Back to the Future or something.

Amazon = 99.9% of all my gaming purchases.

They have terrific prices like this year round though. I bought Rogue Galaxy off there for like $16.99 new a few months ago. I can't imagine not buying my games from there and having to resort to dreaded Gamestop. God I hate that place, I always feel weird setting foot in there.

was playing infamous 2 till my stupid ps3 decided to lock up on me and corrupt my save file!
SO PISSED!
10 days of work, hero playthrough, all but 2 shards, all but 5 dead drops, all side missions, all but 2 powers upgraded, and all my XP down the drain!
im done with playing multiplats on my ps3, im sick to death of this happening!
gotta take my copy of allice madness returns and RFA tomorrow for the 360 versions.
