You can make money by buying Aliens: Colonial Marines on Amazon right now
This is either the greatest deal ever or the saddest deal ever. SEGA and Gearbox's Aliens: Colonial Marines is just $1.99 right now on Amazon. That's a 90% discount on a game that came out in February of 2013.
What's more, you can actually make money by buying this game. Amazon is currently running a "Digital Games $5 Holiday Credit" promotion. Anything purchased form the Digital Games store until December 31 will get you $5 promotional credit to spend on Amazon's 2013 Editor's Choice Games. At $1.99, you're making a $3.00 profit by buying Aliens: Colonial Marines.
Greatest deal ever? Or saddest deal ever? It's been a rough ride for Aliens: Colonial Marines. In development for what seemed like forever, Aliens: Colonial Marines' release was one of the most anticipated; but, it also turned out to be one of the biggest flops. Poor graphics and stale gameplay led to an average Metacritic score of about 45. That's out of 100, mind you.
Amazon's $1.99 sale is only valid on the PC digital download version of Aliens: Colonial Marines. Have fun?
