[Amazon Canada] Darksiders III Pre-Order $60 CAD

Amazon Canada currently has Darksiders III pre-orders up for $59.99, ($53.99 with Prime).

Apologies if this ends up being MSRP, but it's the only Canadian retailer listing I see at present - and GameStop USA, Best Buy USA, and Amazon USA currently have it listed at $59.99 USD.

Given the above, and the series' AAA history, there's no reason not to believe that this would probably be a standard $79.99 CAD title.

I wonder how much of Vigil Games is actually left at the new company. This game could really go either way. Doesn't hurt to do a no-risk pre-order, of course...

The game looks pretty slick, the other 2 were pretty good. But with the history on this one, unless there is a half-decent CE, I'll wait for the "ultimate" version (probably on PC too!)

I thought the company shut down, and if so, this smells like a "Sacred 3-level fiasco" where they transfer the IP to push out a quick-buck turd.

I wouldn't PO this thing for $30.

This game is not not even made by the same developers as the first 2 games and the gameplay footage released so far looks kind of outdated for a 2018 release. It barely looks better than the last game game that came out in 2012. Take a look for yourself before you preorder.


If you can wait a bit this is almost certainly going to be a game that's 50% off within a month or two after launch.

There's never any justification for pre-ordering. All it does is ensures that the gaming industry continues to flush itself down the toilet as developers pump out an endless stream of gawd-awful games. Stop forking over your money in anticipation of a game. Let it come out, judge it and then decide if it's worth the money.

Sorry, some of us just aren't losing sleep over the logistics of pre-ordering a game at a discount now and then. There's always time to cancel, there's always the potential to return. I'm a pretty mature adult, I have a really good grasp on whether or not I'm spending my money wisely without anybody else's opinion on when I should or should not be committing spending it.

Thanks for lookin' out though...

Games are $39-$49 if you pre-ordered from Amazon during E3 week. Just got South Park for$49 and GT Sports for $39 this week.

I just got South Park: The Fractured But Whole, a game that's $79.99 on shelf right now, for $36.72 because of when I pre-ordered it. I'd call that a justification.

You're completely missing my point. It's not about you and it's not about me. It's the entire gaming community that suffers when people keep throwing their money at developers (or rather, their corporate pimps) before games have been released, thus becoming subject to actual judgement of value. The No Man's Sky debacle should have been enough for "mature adults" (your words) to learn from their gullible mistakes but this problem is getting ever worse. You can spend your money on whatever you want - I'm not suggesting you can't. I'm simply stating that if the game turns out to be a dud, you've contributed to ensuring that developers/corporate entities believe that they can get away with greedy, dishonest behavior. Make them work for your money.

You are completely missing the point. Yes, preordering at full price is really stupid. No, preordering at 20 or more percent off definitely is not, especially if you do it from Best Buy with free returns - zero risk, all reward. Basically if the reviews come out on the release day and say it's a dud, you don't open the box.

probably got 20% prime discount stacked on top of the $50 which was the E3 preorder price. It worked for a very short window of time for some folks. Not for me sadly.
