New Video Game Releases
Looking to stay updated on all the latest new video game releases without breaking the bank? The deal experts here at DealNews have you covered. We’ve scoured the internet, hunting down deals on games released in the last 45 days, so you can keep your eyes on the in-game prizes instead.
Video Game Price Trends
The price of a newly released game can vary greatly, depending on whether the title is produced by an indie development company or a major publisher. A typical AAA title will usually cost $60 upon initial release across all major platforms. (“AAA” refers to games produced by mid-size or major publishing studios.)
On the other hand, newly released indie games can cost anywhere from $5 to $40, depending on several factors:
- The perceived value and scope of the gameplay
- Whether the studio has published recognizable titles previously
- The pricing of similar games already on the market
We’re entering the later years of the lifespans of current video game consoles — the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were both released in 2013, and both have successor consoles slated for release around the holidays of 2020. As such, the prices of current-generation titles may begin to drop slightly .
Tips & Tricks
Our Blog team has compiled an extensive guide on how to snag a deal on video games and consoles around the holiday season. Here are some of our most helpful tips on how to pay less for new video game releases:
- Check for console bundles that include newly released titles, as well as special editions of said titles that include extra content. These are typically bundled to save a few bucks off the combination of items, and will be a better bet than buying them separately.
- Marketplace sellers can be your best bet for finding discounts on the newest video games. Check Amazon, eBay, and Rakuten marketplaces for deeper discounts that you’d see on the official publishers’ sites.
- Gift card offers can help you save on future games. Buying a new console? Search for deals including gift cards to help you snag games or accessories for less.
