But I headed over to Amazon to check out the deals, and things are not what they seem. Sure, "Skylanders Giants Portal Owner Pack" for Nintendo 3DS is discounted to $22.49 (from a regular $49.99), but the other games on sale - "Disney Princess: My FairyTale Adventure" for the Wii and "Borderlands 2" - aren't discounted at all. Oh, actually, "Borderlands 2" has 3 cents slashed off the original price. My mistake.
It's pretty shoddy of Amazon to promote a sale that's not really a sale at all. And yes, they might have some actual deals up their sleeve, but we won't know until prices are revealed at the time of the "sale." We've contacted Amazon and will update the post if they reply, but at this point, it's safe to say we're all off better hunting for deals on games somewhere else.
