Memorial Day weekend is finally here, and with it, the holiday is bringing a slew of deals across tech and gaming. GameStop always gets in on the action with a major sale of its own, and its 2020 Memorial Day sale is live now through Monday, May 25 with deals on games, accessories, refurbished consoles, and more. Its biggest promotion is a buy two, get one free offer on new and pre-owned games for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One. This type of sale is usually relegated to pre-owned titles only, so it’s pretty notable that new games, including some Switch titles, are included as well. Unfortunately (but not surprisingly), first-party Switch games and retro games aren’t included, and most of the games are full price.
As usual, when you add three games to your cart, the price of the cheapest one will be subtracted from your overall order. Because of this, it’s important to be strategic with which games you choose–buying two $60 games and one $15 game isn’t much of a savings. You should also be aware that many of the games in this B2G1 sale are listed at a price higher than what we’d normally see them on sale. Nier: Automata’s Game of the Yorha Edition, for instance, has regularly been available for $25, but it’s listed at $40 here. The Witcher 3’s Complete Edition is usually on sale for about $20 for PS4 and Xbox One, and $45 for the Switch version, yet those versions are selling for $40 and $60 here. And whatever you do, don’t buy Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle for $60–it’s nearly always on sale for $15 to $20.
If you’re shopping for new games, there are still some solid options included; just be aware you could probably find some of these games individually for cheaper. Notably, the sale includes Final Fantasy VII Remake – Deluxe Edition, which has been hard to find physical copies of since launch. Another great option is Persona 5 Royal’s steelbook launch edition, on sale for $50. The B2G1 sale also includes the Resident Evil 3 remake, Control, The Outer Worlds, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, so you’ve got some good games to choose from.
