If you've been coveting Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light or one of the newer Tomb Raider games but decided to wait until the price was right, now is the time to take the plunge. Both Steam and Xbox LIVE are offering great holiday deals.
Xbox LIVE has Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light at half price (600 MS points) today only! The Kane & Lynch character pack is also free for Gold members today. To sweeten the pot, LCGOL is one of several daily specials that will earn you an extra entry in the Xbox Countdown to New Year's Eve Sweepstakes. For details, visit http://www.xbox.com/en-US/Live/countdown2011/home.
Steam is offering deep discounts on the Windows PC version of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light as well as Tomb Raider: Legend, Anniversary and Underworld. LCGOL is now 66% off the regular price (reduced from $14.95 to $5.10) or 76% off ($3.60) if you already own another Tomb Raider game through Steam. Anniversary, Legend and Underworld are all half price: $4.99, $9.99 and $14.99, respectively. Dozens of other games are reduced for the holidays, too, but the sale ends January 2.
