Get Battlefield 3 (PC) for $29.98

A mere six months ago, Battlefield 3 was all the rage of the game world. Said GameSpot: “In the realm of online combat, Battlefield 3 provides thrills that few games can match.”

Of course, I don’t care how thrilling a game is: I won’t spend $60 on it. Not now, not ever. But $30? At that point I’m more likely to reach for the credit card.

For a limited time, Gamersgate has Battlefield 3 (PC) for $29.98. Shop around and you’ll still find the game selling for $50-plus nearly everywhere else.

In case you missed the advertising blitzkrieg last fall, Battlefield 3 offers blistering war game action of the first-person shooter variety. In addition to plenty of boots-on-the-ground combat, you’ll get to pilot tanks, helicopters, and even jets.

According to GameSpot’s review, the single-player campaign pales in comparison with the fantastic online multiplayer action. But overall the game earned a very solid 8.5, and the average score from dozens of other critics came closer to 9.0.

There are two important lessons here. First, war is hell (duh). Second, it pays to be patient. Even the most high-profile game will cost less — often considerably less — if you’re willing to wait six months or so.

Indeed, I’ll wager that six months from now, you’ll be able to score Battlefield 3 for as low as $20, maybe even $15. It’s not a matter of if; it’s a matter of when.

What’s your policy when it comes to buying games? Splurge or wait?

Bonus deal: Today only, Sellout.woot has the SiliconDust HDHomeRun Prime HDHR3-CC CableCard TV tuner for $149.99, plus $5 for shipping. It’s new, not refurbished, and it originally sold for $250 when I reviewed it last year. The Prime plugs into your router and makes three HD tuners available to all the
Windows 7 PCs on your network. Great, great product if you want to share tuners rather than limiting them to a single PC.
