Sonic recently turned 26, and while he wrestles with the kind of existential crisis that can only come reaching and age that puts you hurtling towards the 'late twenties' side of things, Bundle Stars is offering up a whole batch of Sonic games with some nice discounts. Enter the code BIRTHDAY5 to get these prices.

Hori is resurrecting its classic Fighting Commander controller to coincide with this week's release of the Super Nintendo Classic Edition. This thing is officially licensed by Nintendo, features a full set of turbo switches and will cost you $25.

If you're in the mood for an Xbox, you can grab a shiny new Xbox One S console with a packed-in copy of Forza Horizon 3 or Halo Wars 2, pick two extra games for free and get the whole lot for $249. While stock lasts and all that.

GameStop has a bizarre amount of pretty decent discounts on a handful of console games including Yakuka 0, Persona 5, Puyo Puyo Tetris and Wolfenstein. All of those are things you absolutely need to play, by the way.

Quite why Nintendo is so persistent in making more 3DS consoles, I'm not sure. What I do know is that this Poké Ball styled New 2DS XL will have already won over many hearts just from the way it looks. It's up for pre-order now and will cost you $159.99.

UK Deals

As stock of the console begins to drift in a bit more consistently, Nintendo's UK store has launched a 'Build Your Own Bundle' system on its main site. After choosing which console you want, you can pick a game, a carrying case, an amiibo and a free bonus gift (as tempted as the Mario hat is, you should probably pick a stand, screen protector or that Pokken Pro Controller). All that will run you for £349.99.

If you head over to the official Ubisoft store today, you can grab one of (or all of) these little chibi figurines of some of the original Rainbow Six Siege crew. If there's one thing to be said for Ubi, they know how to do their collectibles.

It may have taken an extra six months to see a UK release, but it hasn't taken that long for the price to fall to slightly more agreeable ranges. The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ on Nintendo Switch, in its fancy boxed form with extra trinkets, is currently £27.95 over at TheGameCollection.

Look, I've said it before and I'll only inevitably say it again - Yakuza 0 is a delight and I adored all the dozens of hours I managed to pour into it. If I could befriend any video game character today, it would definitely be Majima. Conveniently enough, Yakuza 0 is down to its lowest price yet at Argos, costing you £21.99 for the time being.
