Around this time of year, crazy deals are not unusual. However, when GameStop accidentally offered all three Far Cry titles for $8? Well, that kind of deal is insane. Pocket-Lint reports that the retailer yesterday listed Far Cry 3, along with the original Far Cry and Far Cry 2, for less than ten bucks. The retailer was selling its Far Cry Complete Pack, normally priced at nearly $90, for $7.99.
The deal itself was pretty unbelievable, but the fact that GameStop was reportedly allowing anyone to buy, regardless of their location, made it even more so. Unfortunately, deals like this don't often last very long. The price went back up to the original price pretty quickly.
GameStop has yet to explain what happened. However, given the deal's sudden disappearance, it's looking more and more like this was a price error as opposed to a legitimate deal. That said, there hasn't been any mention of GameStop canceling orders or not honouring the price for those who managed to get while the getting was good. Did you snag this deal?
