Black Friday 2016: Sony Teases PS4 Digital Deals With Upto 60 Percent Off

Black Friday 2016: Sony Teases PS4 Digital Deals With Upto 60 Percent Off

Black Friday 2016: Sony Teases PS4 Digital Deals With Upto 60 Percent Off
HIGHLIGHTS
PS4 games will be heavily discounted from November 24
Sony has not divulged which games will be discounted
PS Plus members may get a larger discount
The Xbox One isn’t the only current generation console with a Black Friday sale. Sony has released a teaser for upcoming deals on the PlayStation Store — the company’s digital games storefront.

According to a page on its website, Sony’s Black Friday sale will take place from November 24. There’s a teaser video as well which ends with a sign claiming that you can expect discounts upto 60 percent.
At the moment it is unclear PS Plus subscribers would get an extra percentage off over and above the teased 60 percent. Reason being, Sony is running a sale right now that lets PS Plus subscribers claim upto 70 percent off on games.

What’s also unclear at the moment is which games will be discounted. Safe to say, you could expect deals on titles that are discounted on Microsoft’s Black Friday sale such as FIFA 17, Titanfall 2, Battlefield 1, WWE 2K17, GTA V, and The Witcher 3 to name a few, in addition to some of Sony’s exclusives.

While digital deals are nothing new, it’s heartening to see Sony making an aggressive statement about it. Aside from the all but obvious reasoning that it stands to gain a whole lot more in terms of margin by pushing digital, it also curbs used game sales.

Although getting games cheap is always better for consumers, keep in mind that most PS4 games are around a 30 to 40GB download. For some, with slow Internet speeds or small data caps, it could work out to be a whole lot more expensive than ordering a physical copy from websites like Amazon or walking down to a store and buying an PS4 game on a disc.

Steam Black Friday 2016 Sale: GTA V, Skyrim, and More PC Game Deals

Steam Black Friday 2016 Sale: GTA V, Skyrim, and More PC Game Deals

HIGHLIGHTS

  • The Steam Black Friday sale ends on November 29
  • Games on discount include indie classics like Undertale
  • There is one discounted price per game for the duration of the sale

Earlier in the week we reported that Steam’s Black Friday sale will take place place from November 23 onwards. This has now been confirmed with the site itself replete with offers for the season. Dubbed as the Steam Autumn sale, here’s what you should check out.

(Also see:  The Steam Black Friday Sale Is Here and This Time It’s Different)

Best Steam Black Friday deals

  • GTA V: this open-world crime classic is now Rs.1,468, a whole 50 percent cheaper than what it normally costs, making it well worth buying.
  • Undertale: last year’s indie darling is a steal at Rs. 184, half price from what it is usually. A great game that runs on almost any PC configuration.
  • Quantum Break: this one time Xbox One and Windows 10 PC exclusive is now on Steam with some interesting optimisations for PCs to boot. Well worth the Rs. 636 price of entry.
  • Batman: Arkham Knight: although your mileage in terms of performance will vary, Rocksteady’s last open-world adventure starring the caped crusader demands consideration at Rs.949.
  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim: perhaps not as souped up as the recently released Skyrim Special Edition, it has the flexibility of extended mod support. After all, at Rs. 186 you’d be foolish not to check it out.

While these deals are great, Steam may not be the cheapest option. This holds true for games from publishers like Electronic Arts and Ubisoft who have their own digital distribution services. Also, if you can’t pick up anything during the current sale, don’t worry. There will be a Winter sale as well which should take place from December 22 to January 1.

Verizon Eyes Automotive Technology Market, Could Spur Other Deals

Verizon Eyes Automotive Technology Market, Could Spur Other Deals

Verizon Communications Inc’s recent purchases of two vehicle tracking firms could spark more deals as the No. 1 wireless provider and rival AT&T see fleet management as a source of growth, analysts said.

Faced with a saturated wireless market, several telecom companies are looking beyond their main phone business for ways to extract more value from existing networks. Just last month, Verizon bought Yahoo for $4.8 billion, diving into digital media and advertising.

But Verizon also recently acquired privately held connected-vehicle technology firm Telogis for an undisclosed sum and said it would buy GPS vehicle tracking company Fleetmatics Group Plc for $2.4 billion (roughly Rs. 16,012 crores).

Telecom providers are moving towards acquiring “eyeballs or a fleet of people” that can use applications built on top of the wireless network, said Richard McBee, chief executive officer of Canadian communications technology company Mitel Networks Corp .

The fleet and mobile workforce management business connects fleet vehicles to the wireless network and collects data, like driver behaviour, to manage vehicles and workers. The business delivers a source of recurring subscription-based revenue from clients such as large logistics companies and local delivery services.

After buying Fleetmatics and Telogis, Verizon could be on the lookout for a security or software technology firm to pair with its data-heavy automotive technology business, Susan Beardslee, analyst at ABI Research, said. Potential targets could be Israel-based cyber security firm Argus and software management company Movimento, she added.

Rival AT&T has its own fleet management business and could look into buying fleet tracking firms such as Teletrac Navman, Omnitracs, Geotab and Zonar, analysts said.

Verizon, Argus, Movimento, AT&T, Omnitracs and Zonar Systems declined to comment. Teletrac Navman and Geotab could not be immediately reached for comment.

While Verzion’s second-quarter revenue of $31 billion dwarfs that of Telogis and Fleetmatics, both firms are expected to grow quickly. Fleetmatics reported $285 million in sales last year and is seen growing at an annual revenue rate of 15 percent to 20 percent.

Fleet management businesses may also get a boost from a recent federal regulation that mandates that companies digitally record driver work hours with electronic devices, analysts said.

“It will be interesting to see how they leverage up here in coming years,” said Angelo Zino, an analyst at S&P Capital IQ. “But I wouldn’t expect (Fleetmatics) to be the last of their deals.”

Prime Day Deals: Nexus 6P, Xbox One, Amazon Products, and a Lot More

Prime Day Deals: Nexus 6P, Xbox One, Amazon Products, and a Lot More

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Amazon is promoting Prime Day as bigger than Black Friday
  • All deals are exclusive to Amazon Prime members
  • Deals will go live throughout the day

Amazon Prime Day is here. A wide range of products have got massive discounts across categories on the online retailer’s website. All of these deals are only available for Amazon Prime members, so if you want to get these discounts, you’ll have to buy a Prime subscription. We picked the best deals we found on Amazon US, though other Amazon stores like the ones in Canada and UK, among others, are also marking Prime Day 2016 with discounts of their own.

Note that most of these deals will not ship to India directly from Amazon US, though you may be able to find many other Prime Day deals that do. But don’t worry, here’s how you can order these products from the US and get them shipped to India. Before you go ahead make the purchase though, remember even if you get a fantastic deal you will have to pay taxes and Customs duties on the goods you order. This can increase the price significantly so you should factor that in before ordering. Note that companies may not honour the warranty locally either.

If the product you select can be delivered by Amazon to your home in India – it will tell you before you order – then the e-commerce company will take care of duties and taxes for you.

Here are the best deals from Amazon US Prime Day 2016 sale. If you already have an Amazon Echo, be sure to check out this page for all Alexa deals. The first purchase you make via Alexa gets you an additional $10 discount.

In addition to these, there are plenty of limited time, lightning deals as well, so keep checking the Prime Day deals page to make sure you don’t miss out on something.

1. Huawei Nexus 6P
The Nexus 6P (Review) 64GB and 128GB variants are available at over 25 percent off on Amazon. If you want a smartphone that runs stock Android, this is a good bet.

2. Xbox One

The deal offers an Xbox One, a $50 Amazon gift card, an extra wireless controller, and a digital code for Forza Horizon 2.

Three bundles are on sale. The Name Your Game Bundle ships with Halo 5: Guardians – Limited Edition physical disc and offers a download code for one of Forza Motorsport 6, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, or Rare Replay.

iPhone 6S, Apple Watch, MacBook Air, Surface Pro 4, and More Deals This Week

iPhone 6S, Apple Watch, MacBook Air, Surface Pro 4, and More Deals This Week

This week we have some great exchange offers on Apple iPhone and MacBook Air, discounts on laser printers and Surface Pro 4, and a whole lot more.

1. Apple iPhone 6S 64GB space grey
Now’s your chance to grab an iPhone 6S in an exchange offer, before the festive season sale. Flipkart’s Exchange Days sale includes smartphones, laptops, tablets, and even home appliances. You can get up to Rs. 14,500 off instantly when you swap your old smartphone for the iPhone 6S 64GB space grey. You can also opt for a no-cost (no downpayment) EMI offer if you have a Bajaj Finserv EMI card. The exchange offer is also available on the 16GB variant (select colors only) as well as the iPhone 6S Plus. If you’re looking to get rid of your old used smartphone, now is the time. Flipkart may not offer the best value for your used devices, but the instant discount and smooth pick up service cannot be matched by anyone else. The only catch here is that Flipkart has stopped accepting old iPhones for exchanges. You can no longer swap an iPhone each year on Flipkart.

6. Apple Watch sport edition
The Apple Watch is down to Rs. 27,399 (MRP Rs. 34,900) on Flipkart for a limited period. This is one of the lowest prices for a non-cashback offer this year. The stocks will be limited so we’re expecting these to run out of stock pretty soon. Since the seller is WS Retail (Flipkart’s own company) you don’t have to worry about the product being genuine. With WatchOS 3, the first-generation Apple Watch is expected to get a whole new life. Apple may announce the next smartwatch later this year, but it won’t come at a price as sweet as this. The Apple Watch is an extension of the iOS experience right down to your wrist. You can use the Apple Watch to track fitness, receive notifications from your iPhone, or use Watch based apps. The Watch also includes a heart rate sensor, and a Retina Display. Remember, the Apple Watch is only compatible with an iPhone.
