Pick up Star Wars: Squadrons for just $20.

Electronic Arts

I can't fathom paying $60 for a new game release. It's madness, I tell you -- madness! That's because waiting for just a few months often yields savings of up to 50%, sometimes even more.

For proof, look no further than the Best Buy 4-Day Sale happening right now. In addition to the usual assortment of electronics and appliances, the sale includes some noteworthy game deals. You stand to save as much as 67%.

Most of the deals are on PlayStation and Xbox titles, with some Nintendo Switch stuff thrown in for good measure. Note that Best Buy offers free shipping only if your cart total hits $35, though you may be able to opt for in-store or curbside pickup and dodge that requirement.

Here are my favorite deals from the selection:

Madden NFL 21 for PS4 and PS5: $20 (save $40)

Madden NFL 21 for Xbox One, Series X: $20 (save $40)

Marvel's Avengers for PS4 and PS5: $25 (save $15)

Marvel's Avengers for Xbox One, Series X: $25 (save $15)
