Harvey Norman - 50% off All Games from Midnight Tonight (Ends 29th Midnight)

2351

The perks of having a Twitter account. Saw this here - https://twitter.com/#!/XboxAustralia/status/184539649954414593

Given that in recent months Harvey Norman have been selling 'AAA' games at a cheaper price (bought RAGE: Anarchy Edition at launch for under $70), this will be an interesting deal they are offering.

ALL games 50% off (3DS, PS Vita, X360, PS3 etc.)
Ends 29th March midnight
Online only (not imports site. You can have game(s) delivered or you can pick up from a local store)

    Asssuming it's 50% off the marked price and not RRP, you might find some pretty decent games at a decent price.

    Whoa! Gerry has a time machine! "50% off all Xbox games from midnight tonight, Wednesday 28th"

    • +4 votes

      Technically speaking, that is correct.

      Midnight is considered 00:00, the first time for the next day.

      • +2 votes

        technically speaking, midnight tonight is incorrect because midnight only ever occurs in the morning.

        or we could just not be stupid and over analyse.

          I could find a lot of people that would argue otherwise - midnight is just the beginning of the night! :P

          Far as I'm concerned midnight is neither morning or night. It's smack bang in the middle of both, therefore unique. You (and anybody who says things like 12am) should be SHOT by the LOGIC POLICE.

          :)

    Wouldn't get too excited yet, Xbox AUS jumped the gun, but Harvey Norman haven't announced anything, only saying "All will be revealed at midnight tonight". Wouldn't be surprised if it was selected titles only..

  •  

    I bet it will be off RRP or only select titles, making for a very average deal.

    Now that's assuming that it is 50% off their marked price, and they don't bump the prices up prior to this sale, and assuming it's on all titles.

    If all is correct, then there's some decent prices for newly released games, ala Ninja Gaiden, Darkness II, Street Fighter X Tekken,Resident Evil, and Catherine. All of which would be under $40.

    •  

      Plus, with other stores doing trade-in deals, it's a good incentive to buy newly released games at the sale price. Works out well, since you can't trade-in imported games due to the rating on the cover/disc.

      Your future copy of Assassin's Creed III could cost you as low as $40.

    •  

      Good job going to the effort of compiling the list, price bump before the 50% is almost inevitable though isn't it? Can't see them selling ME3 for $39 for example.

      Your list will be a good means of comparison if nothing else if the bump they prices I guess :)

    •  

      If they bump the prices up prior to discounting them at their already advertised sale discount of 50%, then they are in clear violation of consumer rights laws, and the consumer watchdogs would love to hear about it ;)

      Would be silly for them to do so after their recent hefty fines over the 3DTV Sports advertising fiasco.

      •  

        prior to this sale, HN had batman arkham city for $36, it's now back up to $58.88, so yeah the've bumped up the price prior to the 50% off, but still makes it cheaper at $29.44 …

    •  

      Couldn't find half the titles on your list mate, where are they on the website? Or have things gone out of stock already?

    •  

      thumbs up on your effort to compile this list

  •  

    They have increased Batman-AC price from $38 to $59.
    but still the deal is gonna be interesting

  •  

    "Andrew, it's not so much: "All will be revealed…"
    It's more like: "ALL will be revealed…""

    From the Facebook rep, wonder if there's more to it than just Xbox 360 Games.

    •  

      Odds on it will be PS3 too. Xbox Australia just 'leaked' it early on Twitter…

  •  

    Wow nice sale if they don't bump their prices too much. Hope they do one for PS3 soon.

  •  

    Going by the list above by Grimezy it looks about right. Not too sure they will add Me3 in there though. Gametraders having sale too and have Skyrim for $49, ME3 $49 and more so you can see those games around the same price when HN starts the sale but I say HN will beat Gametraders game sale $5 - $10 cheaper games

  •  

    Top stuff ibuzz and Grimezy. Wish Silent Hill hadn't got pushed back a few weeks.

  •  

    good deal, been on my mind to get my hands on it!

  •  

    Sorry Gerry.

    I just bought Uncharted 3, Gears of War 3 & Ace Combat Assault Horizon from ZAVVI = $71 shipped. ~$24 each.

  •  

    Is shipping free or not?

  •  

    Harvey has had some good discounts lately. Keep it up!

    Would be epic if it's pre-orders also.

    Update post to include PS3 games!

  •  

    woah me3 $39!

  •  

    I don't think prices updated. Unless $68.88 is 50% off Saints Row the Third.

  •  

    Pre-orders not included. Ah well, $156 it is then. Use SSX and Mass Effect 3 as trade bait and get myself a collectors edition of some sort.

    reduced price only shows up in your cart once added. you can pick up at local stores also… mmm pitty it's a 2 game limit…

  •  

    Apparently Harvey Norman only sells 10 DS games, and 12 3DS games (not included Super Mario 3D Land). Mario Kart 7 is only $29.44 though :)

  •  

    Arkham City and SSX. Happy with that!

    Includes Wii Fit Plus, with the board, making it $64.44.

    Even includes the Skylanders starter pack.

  •  

    Has anyone had any experience with instore pickup at Harvey Norman? Is it relatively straightforward?

    • +1 vote

      Very easy. Walk to pickups counter, say your order number/hand over print out of purchase order and grab your items.

    •  

      problem is you need to wait 3 days apparently before its ready to be picked up, may as well have gotten it delivered!

    •  

      I ordered last night at around 11pm.

      Called the store I had nominated this afternoon about 1pm and asked if my online pickup order was ready.

      They said yes, ready for pickup.

      Went there an hour later, handed over the confirmation email, signed a piece of paper and walked out with my two brand new games.

      Piece of cake :-)

      •  

        Yeah i must admit mine was ready around lunch time today. Ordered yesterday afternoon, so thats pretty cool

        EXCEPT -

        i didnt read the you have to wait til we tell you its ready to come get it, i went down there yesterday afternoon also hahaah

        5pm Sydney City traffic is the worst!
