If you haven’t pre-ordered two of the highlights of the gaming calendar this year in Modern Warfare 3 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, you may be interested in some deals that we have found for both, courtesy of Target and their upcoming November 6-11 sale.
You can bet that online retailers will be offering various incentives for those who don’t have the game, and Target look like one of the first to come with an offer on the table, as reported from GamerTell. We’ve taken a look at the deals and we have to say they are not that amazing in reality, but still an ‘incentive’ nevertheless for you to consider.
They will be selling Skyrim for $59.99 on launch day, but you’ll get a $10 gift card with any version of the game you buy. Sadly though, it doesn’t look like you can use the $10 gift card on Skyrim itself, so you’ll have to spend it on another game, like Modern Warfare 3 for example.
If you buy infinity Ward’s upcoming shooter from Target, you’ll get a $20 discount off the purchase of a 12-month Xbox Live Gold subscription for picking up the Xbox 360 version of the game for $59.99. Again this is a bit disappointing as there doesn’t appear to be any similar offers for the PS3 and PC versions of the game, just Xbox 360 only.
However, if you decide to go all out and purchase a Xbox 360 or PS3 console bundle, you’ll get a $50 gift card for free alongside your purchase. The three bundles in question are the $199 4GB Xbox 360, the $399 320GB Modern Warfare 3 Xbox 360 bundle, or the $249 160GB PS3 bundle.
As we said above these deals are not amazing, so we hope that some better ones come at the last minute before both games go live next week. In case you need one final reminder, MW3 launches on Tuesday Nov 8, while Skyrim will launch on Friday, 11/11/11. Are you getting both or will you just have time to play one? Alternatively, if you have spotted any deals on both games, be sure to share them with us below.
