Square Enix holiday sale

There are hundreds of video games (and a few weird collectables) on offer in the big Square Enix holiday same.

Deus Ex. Final Fantasy. Kingdom Hearts. Dragon Quest. Tomb Raider. Thief. Just Cause. Life is Strange. There are games from all these series – and plenty more besides – in the Square Enix holiday sale.

While there are digital downloads and Steam keys available for some games, the Square Enix store is unusual in that it often seems to be selling off stock from older consoles. Where else can you buy a brand new, retail copy of PS2 classic Kingdom Hearts or Kingdom Hearts II for $4.99 US each?

Sure, you can pick up brand new retail copies of Final Fantasy XV for PS4 and Xbox One for just ten bucks, but you can also buy the original, PS2 versions of Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 from the same online store for less than five dollars. Meanwhile, the PS4 remaster of Final Fantasy X/X-2 is out of stock.

It’s an odd combination of brand new and bargain bin, and not everything is in stock, but there are some amazing discounts to be had.

There are also some odd things, like the dreadful faux propaganda posters for Deus Ex. It’s baffling that anybody would want this on their wall, even with a 75% discount and a ticket price of $4.99 US. What’s more baffling is that one of the three awful posters is actually out of stock.

We’re hoping that means they didn’t make very many in the first place, because the alternative is that someone has that on their wall.

There’s no accounting for taste, but there are some excellent discounts to be had, right through until January 2, 2019 – while stocks last, obviously.
