Welcome to the new io9 Deals feature! Our superpowered Commerce Team will be bringing you regular updates about the best deals on the shiniest DVDs, games, books, comics, tech and more. Let us know if you'd like to see more or less of something!

We do this because we love you, but yes we also make money if you buy something through our links. - Annalee Newitz


Hello io9 readers! We at the Commerce Team couldn't be more excited to start finding you deals on the stuff you love. If you have any questions about what we do, don't hesitate to ask, and as Annalee said, your feedback will definitely be taken to heart in shaping this segment. We also encourage you to check out our other segments, Kotaku Deals, Gizmodo Deals, and Lifehacker Deals, if you aren't already a fan.

That header image isn't just for show, today you can pick up From Up On Poppy Hill on blu-ray for just $13, which is the cheapest it's ever been. While you're at it, check out io9's interview with Goro Miyazaki. [Amazon]

Pre-order The Hunger Games: Catching Fire [Blu-ray] | $25

The rare film that's better than its book. You can pre-order your blu-ray copy of Catching Fire for $23 today, which is quite a bit better than its $40 MSRP. If you're not an experienced Amazon pre-orderer, they offer pre-order low price guarantee, don't charge you until the item ships, and may not charge tax depending on your state. [Amazon]

The Humble Bundle guys have put together their first AudioBook Bundle, a collection of 8 works you can have read to you for just $6, including Salman Rushdie's The Satanic Verses and Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian. If you're unfamiliar with how Humble works, you decide how much you want to contribute and where you want that money to go, with the option of giving all of it to the authors or all of it to charity.

A roguelike game is, in many ways, the opposite of an audiobook. These six games, including The Binding of Isaac, certainly aren't going to read to you, but they are a great selection of titles that will reward your perseverance, and 4 of the 6 are Mac-compatible. [Humble]
