We’re barrelling through December at a startling clip, so for many of you out there it’s the time of year where you realise you need to buy gifts for your family and friends. What is there out there to buy, though? Well, thankfully, there’s another week’s worth of deals for us to check out, so let’s get right to it.
GamesPlanet is now onto the third weekend in a row of its ‘Xmas Sale’, with a new set of PC download offers to check out. This week’s range features some heavy-hitters from Bandai Namco, Warner Bros, Disney and more. Almost all of these games should be available in the UK, US and beyond, but always make sure to check the game page itself to double-check if the key will work in your region.
Diehard fans of Telltale Games adventures are likely to already own this one, but if you’ve been even remotely curious about The Wolf Among Us, it’s currently heavily discounted over on Xbox Live for Xbox Live Gold members. This one was always a bit of an outlier, given that the comics it is based on are not quite as universally known as The Walking Dead. In this writer’s opinion, however, this is some of Telltale’s finest work. It’s down to £6.60 / $8.25 for Gold Members for the next few days.
With all the fuss over Mass Effect Andromeda in the past week, it’s no wonder that the Mass Effect Trilogy has found its way into another sale. It’s currently £8.99 / $8.99 (yes, I know, the price difference is troubling) as an Origin key from Green Man Gaming. Sadly, this is for all three games without the downloadable content that surrounds them but it’s still all three games for less than £10 / $10 which is hard to beat.
Rockstar Games’ schoolyard open-world brawler, Bully, turned ten years old this year. They grow up so fast these days. To celebrate the occasion, Rockstar has released the game onto mobile devices in the form of an “Anniversary Edition”, which is available on iOS and Android right now for $6.99.
Microsoft has gone and introduced a sale on some digital Xbox One games, just in time for the holiday season and upcoming winter break. This means that some selected Xbox One titles can be had with some fairly decent discounts directly through Microsoft itself. Some highlights include Titanfall 2 on Xbox One for $29.99, FIFA 17 on Xbox One for $39.99 and Recore on Xbox One with free PC copy for $19.99.
Look, if you own a 3DS but somehow don’t have a copy of Ocarina of Time you really need to fix that. Maybe this digital eShop copy of the game from Amazon US will help that happen, it’s currently reduced to $15.99.
This 29-inch LG ultrawide 21:9 curved IPS monitor is currently available for $259.99, its lowest price yet, if you click the link below and use the code CINEMA50 at checkout. That’ll lower the price by $50 and you can begin basking in the ludicrously widescreen goodness.
For those looking for a frantic, high-octane, beautifully made racing game that they can play on more than one platform for the same price, look for further. Forza Horizon 3 is currently reduced down to $39.99 at Amazon US in the form of a digital code that will unlock not only the Xbox One copy of the game, but the Windows 10 version too.
The timing on this one is slightly odd because at the time this article goes up on the site, this deal won’t be on, but it will be active very soon. In recognition of how well the PS4 sold during Black Friday week, Sony is resurrecting one of the Black Friday specific bundle deals for two weeks in December. From December 11th to December 24th, those of you in the US can save $50 when buying a PS4 500GB Slim console with a copy of Uncharted 4. The total cost of that will end up at $250, for the record.
So from December 11th, check for the bundle on the below link to be around the $250 mark. Then you can go nuts.
As if in a bid to stop you leaving the rhythm game party, GameStop US is currently slashing the price of the only-just-released Rock Band Rivals in its two bundled forms. Firstly, to get a copy of the game on Xbox One or PS4 with a guitar controller, it’ll cost you $39.99. If, however, you want to get the game and the whole band kit, that will run you $99.99 right now. That’s a pretty steep discount on a newly released version of the game. That can’t be a good sign for rhythm games.
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.
