Shack PSA: Sales Aplenty at Amazon US & UK

Amazon and its UK counterpart are running a variety of video game sales to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas respectively, bringing a slay-load of bumper discounts on such fine stocking-fillers as Borderlands, Brutal Legend, Dragon Age and Uncharted 2.

On the American side, Amazon's daily 'Gold Box' offer for today is the Eminem-enhanced DJ Hero Renegade Edition, down from $180 to $150. A number of mystery timed 'Lightning Deals' will offer further Gold Box savings throughout the day.


Both Dragon Age: Origins and Borderlands are running the same offer--$44 for the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 version, and $40 for the PC release.

Naughty Dog's Indiana Jones simulator Uncharted 2 will run you $50.

Double Fine's heavy metal fantasy action adventure Brutal Legend is put under the savings axe and comes up $15 lighter, down to $44 on Xbox 360 and PS3.

Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time for the PlayStation 3 is $10 off, down to $50.

Tekken 6 brings its face-kicking action to you for $44 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The UK deals come courtesy of tipsters Mad Brahmin Disease and Maarten, starting with Gearbox's shooter RPG Borderlands down to 27 Great British pounds for the Xbox 360, 24 pounds for the PlayStation 3 edition and a paltry 17 pounds on PC.

The Beatles: Rock Band Special Edition--packing a plastic Hofner bass controller, Ludwig-branded drums and microphone--is down to 120 pounds for 360, PS3 and Wii.

Volition's smash-happy shooter Red Faction: Guerrilla, meanwhile, is reduced to 25 pounds for Xbox 360, 22 pounds for PlayStation 3 and a mere 8 pounds on PC.
