Amazon Loves Gamers Week

While it's not an official title, it is clear that Amazon is trying to cater to gamers this week. And why shouldn't they? Gamers continue playing games, no matter how crappy the economy gets. There's actually an argument to be made that gaming increases as times get worse...but that's a different story.

The first bit of gamer-friendly news coming from Amazon is that of the Gold Box. Starting at midnight Pacific time, Wednesday, August 27 (that's tonight), Amazon will offer the first of its PS3 deals in its All PS3 Gold Box Event. The second deal will be offered at 6am, followed by others at 10am, noon, 2pm, 4pm, and 6pm. Discounts will apply all day, or until supplies last. And, yes, it is a good bet that they'll be offering PS3 consoles at a discount.

The second bit of news comes via mail...or can, if you want it to. Amazon today announced the kickoff of its Release-Date Delivery Program and is offering release-date delivery for Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, Fable 2 and Gears of War 2. All you have to do is pay an additional US$5.98 in shipping costs and these titles can appear on your doorstep on the day they are released. What's more, if you're an Amazon Prime customer, release-date delivery is free.

Currently, I am not an Amazon Prime customer, but I have considered it in the past. This new Release-Date Delivery Program could be the impetus that makes me sign up. Although I'd like to see more available titles before officially making the move.

Good luck with the PS3 deals!

Thanks for giving the heads up on the release date shipping, Lunabean. That's very cool. Here are the times for today's PS3 gaming deals on Amazon that have yet to start:

2PM PDT Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
4PM PDT Devil May Cry 4
6PM PDT Haze

I noticed you share your Wii and Xbox Live IDs... do you have a PSN too? If you don't have a PS3, you might want to take a look at this contest going on where you can win the system simply by designing a 6 Hour Power t-shirt online. There are less than 250 entrants as of now, so you've got to like the odds... You can also win a copy of the upcoming Codemasters game Rise of the Argonauts and some 6 Hour Power energy shots too. Check out the contest details here: http://www.brickfish.com/Entertainment/Stacker2?tab=overview

Let me know if you enter and I'd be happy to vote for your designs. I work with 6HP so feel free to ask me any questions you might have too. By the way, I hope you don't mind me commenting on your site. Good luck!
