EGM’s TAKE: All these deals for a game we were probably going to buy anyway, from a retailer we were probably going to buy from, may be considered the holy grail of a sweet deal. Specifically, a $25 credit towards an Xbox Live Gold account is a fantastic bargain no one should be complaining about, although with the internet as it is, we are sure someone doesn’t like that it’s just $25 and not $26. Kids these days.
