January Sales Offer Up Racing Game Bargains

December might be the time of giving, but January is the time of getting. Every year, after one of the busiest shopping periods on the calendar, retailers offer huge discounts on all sorts of things — and racing games are among them.

There’s a good chance that many of our readers picked up new gaming hardware — consoles, wheels, driving rigs — over the festive period. The January sales offer a good chance to pick up some software to put them through their paces.

All of the major digital storefronts are involved as usual, with prices for some titles slashed as much as 80%. That means there’s an opportunity to try out some racing games you might not have previously considered without leaving too much of a dent in your wallet.

Of course it depends on your region which games are discounted, and by how much, but there looks to be something for just about everyone out there right now.

We’ve scoured the stores to pick out what we think are the best bargains but you’ll need to be quick; most of these offers only last for the next couple of days.
