Here’s Most of The Canadian Boxing Day Gaming Deals

Posted on December 26, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

With Christmas Day now past us I’m sure some of our readers are collecting their holiday cash and gift cards and getting ready to head down to the favorite retailer to purchase some new games. Perhaps you’re staying in-doors and doing a little shopping online instead? Regardless – Broken Joysticks has a rundown of all of the major deals from 3 major Canadian brick & mortar retailers and thankfully, yes, all of the ones listed in this article are also available online.

To be honest there aren’t a lot rush out and bust down the door deals this year. If you are in the market for an Xbox One Console then the 1TB Boxing Week Bundle is definitely worth it. You not only get two brand new games from this year – Rise of the Tomb Raider & Ori and the Blind Forrest but also Rare Replay which includes 30 classics. If you haven’t played Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Batman: Arkham Knight, The Witcher III or Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain all of these major 2015 releases are heavily discounted at multiple retailers.
