Burnout Paradise, Persona 5 Royal, And More Get Cool Discounts This Week

The acclaimed racing game's Switch port is finally getting a decent discount.


Another week means a new crop of deals at every retailer, and Best Buy's deals have been better than most recently. This week's game deals are no different, featuring a nice group of games for Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One at lower-than-usual prices.

Notably, at least one game is at its lowest price yet: Burnout Paradise Remastered, which just launched on the Switch in June. As with many Switch ports, it was priced considerably higher than what you'd pay for the game on other platforms, selling for $50 on Switch compared to $20 on PS4 and Xbox One. This week, however, you can snag Burnout Paradise Remastered on Switch for $30--still higher than other platforms, but a $20 discount on a new Switch port isn't anything to sneeze at. If you're in the mood to play a fantastic racing game, Burnout Paradise Remastered is worth grabbing on sale.

Of course, Best Buy has many other games on sale this week to help you pass the time during this never-ending pandemic. PS4 players have some particularly great picks, including the critically acclaimed open-world adventure Red Dead Redemption 2 for $30 and the definitive edition of a JRPG hit, Persona 5 Royal, for $40. The Xbox One offerings are less notable, but you can pick up the excellent survival horror game The Evil Within 2 for just $11 on Xbox One. The brand-new 3x3 shooter Rocket Arena has already received a steep discount as well, with its $40 Mythic edition now going for $10.

Quite a few Switch games are discounted this week at Best Buy too, including the rarely discounted Astral Chain for $50, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age for $28, and Daemon x Machina for $40. Games like Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are also down to $50, a price that's becoming more common for first-party titles but is still cheaper than what you'll find on the Eshop.
