Amazon.com is holding another big Friday video game sale, and today's selection of games looks to be worth examining. Today's theme revolves around Nintendo icons, meaning that this is the perfect time to pick up that Super Mario or Legend of Zelda adventure you may have missed. The deals seem to be substantial, too. Super Smash Bros. Brawl costs a mere $25 today. Here's the guidelines for the other sale items:
On Friday, June 27, 2008, for the first time ever, Nintendo video games will be featured as the top nine deals in the Amazon.com Gold Box. The identities of each deal will be revealed one at a time.
Here's how it will work:
- At 12:01 AM PST the first deal will be the Gold Box Deal of the Day. Its special discounted price will be available all day only on Friday, June 27 (or until we run out.)
- Starting at 6:00 AM PST, the second deal will be featured as a Lightning Deal. This special price will be available for the following two hours.
- Each of the seven remaining deals will also be Lightning Deals. Starting every two hours that follow at 8:00 AM, 10:00 AM, 12:00 PM, 2:00 PM, 4:00 PM, and 6:00 PM PST, and 8:00 PM each deal will be available for two hours after it begins.
- Discounts on each deal will be available only while supplies last.
Judging the various clues for each mystery title yields a few guesses on my part. I believe that the games on sale include Super Mario Galaxy, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Mario Kart Wii, a Pokemon title of some sort, Yoshi's Island DS, and The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, among others. Best of luck snagging a deal!
