All day today Amazon will be offering up deals on video games, starting with their Gold Box spotlight deal of the day, Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty for only $39.99 (that’s 33% off the list price of $59.99).
Note, this sale is only for today, Tuesday, April 19, 2011, until midnight PST while supplies last.
For more video game deals, watch the main Gold Box page all day today for the Lightning Deals (on the right side of the page), which will begin at 9AM EST. Unlike the spotlight deal, the Lightning Deals go up on sale at certain times throughout the day and are only offered for 2-3 hours and once supplies run out, the item will no longer be available. So for these, if you see something you want, you have to grab it immediately (I’ve seen products sell out in just minutes).
Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty: Standard Edition: Product Features [from the product page]:
* Fast-paced, hard-hitting, tightly balanced competitive real-time strategy gameplay that recaptures and improves on the original game
* Three completely distinct races: Protoss, Terran, and Zerg
* Units and gameplay mechanics distinguish each race
* 3D-graphics engine with support for visual effects and massive unit and army sizes
* Full multiplayer support, with competitive features and matchmaking utilities available through Battle.net
Continue the epic saga of the Protoss, Terran, and Zerg. These three distinct and powerful races will clash once again in the fast-paced real-time strategy sequel to the original, StarCraft. Legions of veteran, upgraded, and new unit types will do battle across the galaxy, as each faction struggles for survival.
Featuring a single-player campaign that picks up where StarCraft: Brood War left off, StarCraft II presents a cast of new heroes and familiar faces in a sci-fi story filled with adventure and intrigue. In addition, Blizzard offers online play through Battle.net with several enhancements and features to make StarCraft II even better.
