Weekend Coupons: Hardware Store

Weekend Coupons is noticing a definite swing toward console deals and bundles as the holiday shopping season wears on. Might want to consider snapping them up this week, as they're certain not to last much past Christmas.

Hardware
• Amazon is going used-car-dealer nuts with the prices on Xbox 360s. The arcade is $179; the Elite is less than $100 more, $274.99. The Elite is the Holiday Bundle, too, so you get a couple games with it. [Dealzon]

• Walmart sees that and says "Allow me to retort." It's dishing up the Elite bundle, plus a 12-month Xbox Live sub, plus your choice of two games - and Modern Warfare 2, Assassin's Creed 2, and Left 4 Dead 2 are on the list - for only $349. Now, you'll have to pay about $15 in shipping, and sales tax. But it's still a good value that normally would run $440. [Dealzon]

• The Guitar Hero Store is offering a buttload of Guitar Hero for a hundred bucks. You get Guitar Hero 5, a git-tar, and then Guitar Hero III and Guitar Hero II, plus Band Hero, for $99.99. [TechDealDigger]

• Target's offering a $10 gift card if you buy a DS. See the circular for details [Target]

• SonyStyle is offering $50 off the PS3 Slim, if you buy an accessory with it. A remote control is $24.99, making this effectively a $25 discount. Or you can look on it as a console with an extra controller for free. [TDD]

• Toys 'R Us will give you any controller for 30 percent off if you buy a console. Not as good as the PS3 deal, but it covers Xbox 360 and Wii. [Toys 'R Us]

• Amazon's hoping that, if you're in the market for a new DualShock, you might be willing to pick up Uncharted: Drake's Fortune along with it. Both are bundled for $58.99, $12 less than bought separately, and the controller comes in four fun flavors, red, black, silver or blue.[Dealzon]

• Dell's selling the PSP-3000 Assassin's Creed model for $169.99. That's $30 less than elsewhere. [Dealzon]

Software
• Steam's deal is Torchlight, half off. That's $9.99. [Steam]

• At GamersGate, Trine is half off. So is the Battlefield 2 Complete Collection (it's down to $14.95), in North America only though, until Wednesday. Saint's Row 2 is 30 percent off ($19.95) through Dec. 28. [GamersGate]

• And finally, Gamefly is offering two months for the price of one to new customers who sign up by this Sunday. You can also get 14 free issues of Sports Illustrated or Entertainment Weekly with the sub. [Dealzon]

As always, smart gamers can find values any day of the week, so if you've run across a deal, share it with us in the comments.
