Amazon Deal of the day: 52% off of Skylander giants + other lightning deals (Hitman absolution, PS3 accessories…)

July 23, 2013

(disclaimer: the amazon links below are associate links, if you purchase by clicking on these links, you don’t pay more, but I get a percentage of the sale)

Amazon regularly do massive discounts on selected video games and gaming accessories. Today’s offer is a 52% discount on the Skylander Giants Starter kit (all platforms, including the PS3).

I’ll have to admit, I was totally unaware of the existence of this game series. I’m sure an army of fans will kill me for my ignorance, given that the game has received critical acclaim since its inception 2 years ago. Based on famous video game character Spyro the Dragon, Skylander focuses on an original gameplay system where you interact with real life toys. Based on the comments on Amazon, the game seems to appeal to players all age, from 4 to grown up men who pretend they buy it for their kids.

The Starter kit here seems to be a great way to discover the game, or for people who played the original series to get introduced to new characters.

If you’ve played Skylanders, I’d love to read your comments as I am interested to know how much the original gameplay with live toys brings to the experience.



In addition to this game discount for the whole day, Amazon will be running Video Games “Lightning Deals” for the next 24h. Lightning deals at Amazon are usually really good discounts on games and accessories, available only for a few hours.

Upcoming deals are in general not disclosed precisely until they start, but this time they seem to be centered a lot on skylanders. That being said, the current lightning deal as I type this is on a move Navigation controller, and amazon also hints at a discount on the latest Hitman game
