Amazon's 'Gold Box' erupting with game savings this Friday, Aug. 28

Sorry, folks looking for schweet dealz on washing machines and bounce houses -- this Friday's "Gold Box" event on Amazon is all about video games. Which games, we don't know. In keeping with tradition, at 12:01 a.m. PDT on August 28, the retailer will reveal the day's Gold Box Deal: a discounted game that'll remain on the cheap until it sells out or Saturday rolls around.

After that, the lightning rounds begin. The identities of the specially-priced games won't be revealed until the moment they're up for grabs (although hints at what they'll be will appear beforehand). We'll be back with those once the sale kicks off. Until then, just keep wishing really hard that the game you've had your eye on gets put in the Box.
