Tis the season to be a gamer

Best Buy cuts prices on selected games, and Amazon has special console deals.

Not only are there some really good deals on game consoles this holiday season, but also on games. Starting December 7, Best Buy is cutting prices for one week on some popular titles for both the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3, making all the serious gamers holiday dreams come true.

This is only on selected titles, for both consoles:

Xbox 360: Tom Clancy's EndWar for $39.99, Civil War for $29.99, Legendary for 39.99, and Far Cry 2 for $39.99.

PlayStation 3: Konami Corp's Metal Gear Solid 4 for $39.99, Dangerous Hunts for $29.99, and The Simpsons game for $9.99

Online giant Amazon.com is making console bundle choices a tad more complicated with deals on the PlayStation 3. With that and the recent price drop of the Xbox 360, this should make for some hard holiday decisions.

A bundle known as the "high-definition promotion" gives the consumer $50 off the PlayStation 3, game, Blu-ray disc, and a remote.

For those looking for a backward compatibility, Amazon has restocked the PlayStation 3, 80GB Metal Gear 4 bundle for $499.99

Not to be outdone by Best Buy, Amazon.com is running a "15 Days, 15 Deals" promotion. That offers a special deal on a new video game each day for 15 days.

Damn, I wish I didn't make all my game purchases already.
