Amazon's Summer Blowout: They Ain't Kidding

By Paul Hunter

Admission time: I really don't like the word ain't, probably because it ain't supposed to be used in written form. Sometimes though, it's great for emphasis -- such as this time!

It looks like currently has a video game "Summer Blowout" happening now through June 20, 2009. There are plenty of DS, Wii, Xbox 360 and PS3 games on sale, and surprisingly there are some great games on sale.

Here are few samples:

Silver DS $99

Animal Crossing $24.97

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon: $24.97

Pokemon: Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time: $12.97

Wario Land Shake $34.99

Wii Music $29.97

Forza Motorsports 2 Platinum Hits $15.97

Super Smash Bros. Brawl $24.99

There are plenty more games on sale, most of them at very reasonable prices. The website says that the savings on select titles are "available only for a limited quantity of inventory on-hand" and that "offer good while supplies last".

I'm not sure if it's a marketing ploy to give us a sense of urgency or if it's legit, but I if you're interested, I would suggest jumping on these deals quickly just to be on the safe side.
