At first, I thought this special bundle deal was a bit odd, but when you stop to think about it, it really makes a lot of sense. When you’re playing on Xbox Live or PlayStation Network, you want a fast, lag-free online gaming experience. Of course you want to have a great router to go with your new video game!
Up until December 22 (that’s this Saturday), you can save $40 when you buy a Linksys EA6500 wireless router and a select video game at the same time. The Linksys EA6500 is the newest and hottest router in the lineup, offering you super fast dual-band AC connections, along with Gigabit and two USB ports. There’s some great prioritization algorithms in there too that make sure your online videos and video games don’t suffer from lag and stutters.
There aren’t too many games to choose from for this bundle, but the ones that are included are pretty popular this holiday shopping season. You’ve got Call of Duty: Black Ops II on your choice of either the Xbox 360 or the PS3, as well as Halo 4 for the Xbox 360. Black Ops is on sale for $49.99 ($10 off), while Halo is $39.99 ($20 off). The Linksys router is $199, which is $20 off its regular list price too.
