Do I really have to say, "The Force is strong with this deal"? Well, it is!


Never pay full price for a video game. Never, ever. I don't care if it's the hottest game of the year or the game you've been waiting a lifetime to play. Because if you can be patient for just a little while, a lower price awaits you -- possibly a lot lower.

Case in point: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order debuted late last year to widespread acclaim, but with a $70 price tag. Now, just two months later, you can get it for less than half as much. For a limited time, CDKeys has Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order for Xbox One for $26.79. That's for an instant-delivery digital download of the deluxe edition, which includes some cosmetic character skins and behind-the-scenes art and videos. Note that this was $34 the first time I shared this deal, and then has dropped a little more in just the last couple of days after the deal reappeared for $28. The price continues to fluctuate, which is good news for us.

The game is "a fun mashup of Dark Souls, Tomb Raider and Metroid Prime, with a story that'll grip you like a Sith Lord." That's according to CNET's Fallen Order review, which also praised its satisfying lightsaber combat.

I've never been able to bring myself to pay $60, let alone $70, for a video game. But this is much more palatable, and if nothing else it's positive proof that you should never, ever pay full price.

Everybody got that? 😜
