The Last Guardian prices cut
November's The Last Guardian was PlayStation's last hoorah before 2016 closed out. It was a long wait for visionary game designer Fumito Ueda's third game, but in our eyes, it was well worth the wait.
Ozgameshop is currently selling the launch edition of The Last Guardian for $54.55 (usually $68.19) and the special edition of The Last Guardian for $65.59 (usually $81.99). The launch edition comes with unique box art on a reversible sleeve and the special edition comes with a steel book case.
