Amazon Prime now offers 20 percent off all new video game releases, with a catch

Amazon’s been steadily expanding the list of benefits you receive with a $99 Prime membership—two-day shipping, a library of music and movies to stream, the ability to “borrow” Kindle books—and today it added video games to the list. Sort of. Prime members now get 20 percent off video game preorders and new releases (a.k.a. purchases up to two weeks after launch).The catch? The discount applies to physical games only. You know—the kind that come in boxes, with discs inside.Given that the PC has largely switched over to digital retail codes, from Steam or Amazon or GOG.com or whoever, you may not have many opportunities to take advantage of Amazon’s generosity. Some publishers still put out physical PC discs, and most of those have Steam codes inside so you’ll still eventually end up in the same place as if you bought a digital copy to start—but you may have to do deal with the hassle of the postal system bringing your “release day” copy of the game at 8 p.m. or what-have-you.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Continue reading at 'PC World'
