Yes, you read that right – it’s under $3. I don’t even own a DS, yet I’m about to buy 10 copies. The bundle comes the Guitar Hero On Tour: Decades game, as well as a guitar grip peripheral with wrist strap and a special stylus pick.
This is 89% off the list price of $24.99, so there’s a chance this is just some kind of error and the price will be back up any minute. Who knows? But, obviously, if this is an item you’d like, grab it right this second.
The video game deal of the day over at Amazon today is Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock Guitar Bundle for only $49.99 (that’s 38% off the list price of $79.99).
The sale is for the bundled version of the game for Playstation 3 or Nintendo Wii, which includes the Guitar controller. (The game bundle is also available slightly discounted for Xbox 360, but that is not part of this sale.)
Note, this deal is valid only for today, Wednesday, May 11, 2011, until midnight PST while supplies last.
A couple of significant bombs were dropped earlier today during Activision’s quarterly financial conference, where reports swirled that massive layoffs at multiple divisions were handed out and that some of the company’s bigger titles were being ended.
As popularity in the music video games genre has slowly diminished, the studio has decided to shut down two of their popular titles including DJ Hero and the juggernaut that once was Guitar Hero, which had a new installment planned for 2011. At the moment Rock Band is the top title in said genre, so it only made sense for Activision to pull the plug and move on. And if the decline in popularity continues, the same fate is likely not too far off for Rock Band as well.
