A couple of big pre-orders are popping up this week with some nice bonuses for those of us with a little foresight.
It’s worth noting that Amazon automatically cuts the price of your pre-ordered games should they discount it after your order and before the release date. So you don’t have to worry about missing any game deals that might pop up next week.
If you’re a veteran of Skylanders or thinking of getting started with the upcoming Skylanders SWAP Force (for pretty much every console in existence), you might want to pre-order the Skylanders SWAP Force Starter Pack. That’s because in addition to the Portal of Power, three character figurines, and the game itself, Amazon is throwing in the newly released Lightcore Hex figurine only with pre-orders.
Project X Zone – $30
Mario Kart 7 – $30
Skylanders SWAP Force (plus pre-order bonus) – $75
LEGO: Marvel (plus a $10 Amazon credit – $40
Pre-orders are now available for PS Vita consoles bundled with Telltale Game’s amazing story-driven zombie adventure, The Walking Dead. This includes the complete first season of the game (5 episodes plus the newly released 400 Days). This bundle will be shambling into your mailbox on August 20.
You can also get a $10 Amazon.com credit towards your next order when pre-ordering LEGO: Marvel Super Heroes for 3DS or Vita (though not for the DS version).
