Best Gaming and Tech Deals of the Week 12/02/16

Best Gaming and Tech Deals of the Week 12/02/16

GamesPlanet, Humble Bundle, Fallout 3, the Xbox One S, Rick and Morty, and more!

Black Friday is over and done. Thanksgiving is over and done. Holiday season is gearing up and going into full effect over the next few weeks which means that this week may be fairly light for deals. That being said, it doesn't mean there is nothing to talk about. We've got another batch of deals, so let's take a look.

So once again, we've got deals that'll work in the UK, deals that'll work in the US and some deals that will work in both the UK and US, as well as presumably many other places. But first, we need to talk about free stuff.

UK & US Deals

GamesPlanet XMAS Part 2

GamesPlanet is currently hosting the second part of it's 'Xmas Sale', discounting a range of games each weekend on the run-up to Christmas. This week's set of deals features some of the titles below, so take a look and see if anything catches your eye. These deals are live until the end of Sunday 4th December and the games are mostly Steam keys that should redeem in most territories, but check the game pages for details.

GamesPlanet Xmas Sale Part 2 - Ends 04/12/2016

Humble Tycoon Simulator Bundle from Humble Bundle

Over on the Humble Bundle side of PC downloads, you can pick up the latest pay-what-you-want offering. This time, it's a range of tycoon simulator games up for grabs, including RollerCoaster Tycoon Deluxe, Democracy 3, Car Mechanic Simulator 2016 and Big Pharma. Pay more than $12 and you'll unlock YouTubers Life and can simulate what it's like to be being one of those YouTube types.

US Deals

Fallout 4 wasn't for everyone. Sure, it was shiny, new and filled with Bostonian accents but sometimes you just pine for a simpler time. Enter Amazon US' current offer of Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas for $3.30 each. If you don't already own both of these, there's never been a better time to add them to your ever-increasing Steam library of games you'll 'get around to someday'.

Seagate 8TB Desktop External Hard Drive for $169.99 from Amazon US

There comes a time in everybody's life when they're going to need more storage to keep all of their precious data. So why not go all-in and get an obscenely large amount of storage space all in one go? Fortunately, you can do that for a little bit less right now since Amazon US is currently taking $70 off of this massive 8TB desktop external hard drive, bringing the price down to $169.99.

Xbox One S 500GB with Gears of War 4 for $269.99 from eBay

Going back to the whole "last week was Black Friday week" thing, you can still pick up a decently priced Xbox One S thanks to eBay. Head over there and you can grab an Xbox One S 500GB console with a digital copy of Gears of War 4 packed in for $269.99 right now.

I'm playing the odds here but there's a fair chance that at least some of you out there are fans of Rick and Morty. If you happen to count yourself among that growing and increasingly rabid fan-base, you can pick up both seasons of the show on blu-ray for an extra discount right now. Season one will cost you $14.99 while season two will run you a marginally more expensive $15.49.

Alright, we're done for another week. Keep in mind that deals, prices and availability can change at the drop of a hat, so apologies if you miss out on something you wanted. I'll be over at Jelly Deals, scouring the world wide web for more deals. Feel free to visit, or follow us on Twitter and give us a like on Facebook.
