Amazon has had a fairly big download-only indie video game store for a little while, but as of today has added several big name publishers to the service. “Big names?” Yes, the likes of EA, Sega, Ubisoft, and Atari. And, since today is the big launch day for the new publishers, Amazon’s running a little sale to help you start your collection.
Amazon splits the games between core gamers and casual games. I don’t think I need to explain the difference between the two to you guys.
The new core games include Medal of Honor, Dragon Age, Need For Speed Shift, Assassin’s Creed 2, and The Sims 3.
Particular deals include Need For Speed Underground for $6.60 (down from $9.99), Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 for $15.00 (down from $29.99), Dead Space for $11.53 (down from $19.99), and, probably the best deal of them all, The Witcher for $6.00 (down from $19.99).
You’ll recall that The Witcher 2′s release date was announced yesterday: May 17, 2011. That’s The Witcher up there, obv.
Bottom line, amigos, is that you have another download store to choose from, and there’s nothing wrong with additional choices.
