FIFA Soccer 13 is on sale for $39.99 on Amazon, a $20 discount from its standard retail price — and that's just one of the games on offer today through the site.
From 9 a.m. ET through midnight, Amazon will periodically slash the prices of select games and gaming hardware as part of its carousel of Lightning Deals. Each offer will only be available for a limited time, or until all of said offers are claimed. As is the site's custom, none of the offers have been explicitly named (save for the first, which went on sale earlier this morning); instead, only clues about the identity of each product have been revealed.
