If you were antsy about picking up Dead Island after it’s mixed reviews and were waiting for the right price to hit, today just might be your day. Amazon.com is going to have an all video game Gold Box for Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2012, and Dead Island is over 50% off! With each set of Gold Box deals, there is always one item chosen as the ‘Deal of the Day’, which is separate from the other lightning deals, and is unique in that it last all days (or until supplies run out). This zombie filled RPG style open world adventure game will be a mere $25.00 all day for either the Xbox 360 or the PlayStation 3, that’s 58% off the original price!
In addition to the great deal on Dead Island, Amazon will also be running lightning deals throughout the day, starting at 6:00AM PST. These deals are kept secret until their launch time, aside from a minor hint as to what the item might be.
