Today is India’s 67th Independence Day, and several online games retailers are offering discounts in celebration. We’ve listed them all out below:
Humble Origin Bundle
The biggest deal of them all is not exactly an Independence Day offer, but it coincides with the date, so it’s fair game. As with each Humble Bundle, the Origin bundle has a bunch of games up for grabs and you can pay whatever you’d like for the bundle. Here’s a list of games available:
- Dead Space
- Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box
- Crysis 2 Maximum Edition
- Mirror's Edge
- Dead Space 3
- Medal of Honor
If you end up paying more than the current average ($4.63 at the time of writing), you’ll also get Battlefield 3 and The Sims 3 + Starter Pack, plus soundtracks for both games. Eight games for less than Rs 300 is an absolute steal!
Flipkart is offering 15% off on all games released within the first half of 2013. It includes over 50 titles across platforms, including:
- Bioshock Infinite
- Tomb Raider
- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Legendary Edition
- Civilization V: Brave New World
- Remember Me
- Grid 2
- Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
Game4u’s Freedom Sale spans four days from 15th to 18th and also includes a Flash sale daily from 4 to 4:30 pm. Here’s what Game4u has on offer:

Snapdeal’s Digital Freedom sale is offering discounts on console bundles, with up to 9% on PS3 and PS Vita console+game bundles, and up to 21% off on select Xbox 360 bundles. That 21% discount, however, applies on Snapdeal's own bundles; the standard bundles are being sold at a 5% discount.
